    Tim Tebow’s draft value 

    The TL:DR; version: If he’s there in the later rounds (say, ninth round or later in a 12-team league), I’m drafting him.

    Even if I already have two QBs. Even if the Jets swear up and down the Sanchez is their man. Even if the Jets don’t appear to have any plans to use him as anything but a plain vanilla backup QB.

    Of course, he won’t be there in the late rounds. There will be a true believer in every draft who reaches for him in the fifth, and that person is crazy. But his true draft value is still a lot higher than any other backup QB on a team that just reaffirmed its commitment to the incumbent starter with a contract extension for two reasons:

    First, Sanchez is terrible, and even worse when the pressure is on. With the NY press second-guessing at his every throw from training camp on, he’s going to come out of the gate looking like the worst $40 million anyone ever spent on anything.

    Second, there’s no way in hell Rex Ryan leaves him to rot on the bench even if Sanchez does keep his job. When your first-string QB is Mark Sanchez, you’ve got the perfect Wildcat QB on your roster, and your new offensive coordinator is Tony Sparano (AKA the guy who invented the Wildcat), you run the Wildcat. A lot. That alone doesn’t make him worth a fantasy start, but if they find other ways to get him involved, he could become an interesting option even as a backup.

    I guess the most interesting question is: Who will get picked earlier in drafts this year, Sanchez or Tebow?

      I agree that Sanchez is a bum. I can’t believe they spent that much on him. Tebow will put up some points because they will still use him, he’s probably good for 10 PPG

    • Michael Brown 10:40 am on April 12, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Tebow put up some nice points last year despite not really passing much.

      It’ll be interesting to see if the Jets bench Sanchez an give him the chance. I am in both a dynasty league and a redraft league. I would take a chance on him in a dynasty salary league but I don’t know if I could pull the trigger this year in a redraft. IMO you have to draft him too high to meet a better risk/reward factor. I would also say that Tebow gets selected well before Sanchez in most leagues.

      Sanchez is a bumm i do agree but 40 MILLION WOW

      i follow a lot of analysts at http://www.ffgator.com through twitter and most many made the point that Sancez wont top 20 TDs this year with Tebow stealing many goal line options. RBs will suffer as well.

      Any chance he will be listed as a QB/RB in Yahoo?

      Quit yer laughin!! I can dream can’t I?!?

        Do it in a heartbeat.

          Another player wants to trade Ben Roethlisberger for Tony Romo. I’m not sure about it though. Do you think Roethlisberger and LeSean McCoy for Romo and C.J. Spiller ( or Mark Ingram) will be a good deal, and one that might be accepted?

    Terrell Owens finally signs with a team…the Allen Wranglers? 

    After going the entire 2011-12 season without being offered a contract by an NFL team, Owens has decided to switch gears and will now play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He also becomes part-owner of the team as part of the deal. So for all of you IFL fantasy football league players out there…get your popcorn ready!

    CBS to launch fantasy app store 

    Apparently CBS is opening a Fantasy App Store, giving developers access to their API’s so they can create free or paid apps (of which they take a 30% cut.) I’m pretty sure this article is saying that the apps will live on CBSSports.com, as opposed to on your phone or desktop, but I could be mistaken. The full store opens at the end of the month, but they’ve already launched a development center where developers can begin learning what features and data they’ll have access to.

    Once someone masters this and comes up with their first app, let us know and we’ll feature it on FFGeekBlog.com!

      Disappointing. I wish someone would create an API that allowed for the development of real apps, not “apps” that live on CBS’s crappy website.

    Week 17 Open Forum 

    With most leagues already finished and me visiting the in-laws this week, I won’t get a chance to put up the full player rankings as usual. Instead, here’s an open forum where anyone with week 17 championships can feel free to post their player questions and hopefully between myself and our readers, we can provide some assistance. Good luck to everyone who’s in the championship this week!

      Week 17 – The Final! Here are my options… What do you think?

      WR:
      Jordy Nelson vs DET
      Dwayne Bowe vs DEN
      Julio Jones vs TB
      Andre Johnson vs TEN
      Santana Moss vs PHI

      RB:
      Mendenhall vs CLE
      Reggie Bush vs NYJ
      Beanie Wells vs Seattle
      Steven Jackson vs SF
      CJ Spiller vs NE

      I need to start 3 WRs and 2 RBs. Also, do you think I should start Aaron Rodgers even though he probably won’t play the whole game? My backup QB is Eli Manning.

      • Chris Bridson 6:57 pm on December 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        JC, I’d go with Nelson, Bowe, and Jones at WR. Nelson and Bowe are pretty solid plays… Jones should get some looks against hapless Tampa Bay. I’d go with Mendenhall and Bush at RB. Mendenhall has a good matchup against crappy Cleveland and Bush is just on fire. I would start Manning at QB. The Giants/Cowboys game could be a shootout.

      • TRADE 'EM IF YOU GOT 'EM 10:28 am on December 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I think Chris hit it right on. But I would be wary about playing Nelson with Green Bay having no reason to play their starters this week. As for RBs, Wells has given me nothing but heartache all season, and Jackson plays the 49s, so they are out. Spiller has proven over the last couple weeks that he is a good start and Bush scares me after leaving the game injured last week. I would keep an eye on Bush. But, he is my favorite of them all and had a hand in helping me win the season.

        I think a couple RBs to look out for this week is Ben Tate and Kahlil Bell.

        Good Luck

        Need some help…
        Should I start Graham (TE) or Percy Harvin?
        I have started Brandon Marshall and Victor Cruz.
        Thoughts?

    • Chris Bridson 6:52 pm on December 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I’m in my Yahoo league’s championship game this Sunday. At WR3 I could start Wayne, Moss, or Demaryius Thomas. It’s too close for me to call based on the Week 17 rankings I’ve seen, but I’m leaning towards Thomas since he seems to be ranked the highest. Who should I start?

      • TRADE 'EM IF YOU GOT 'EM 8:55 am on December 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I would aim towards Thomas. Thomas has shown that he is a favorite for Tebow and has been showing good numbers for the past couple weeks (minus Tebows debacle last week). But this is a game they need to win and I think they will be playing on all Cylinders.

      Hey guys.. first championship! Who to start?

      Flex: Willis McGahee vs. Amhad Bradshaw

      Would appreciate any feedback/thoughts!!
      Jeff

      Finals week, need to pick two WRs:

      Roddy White (will ryan play the whole game?)
      AJ Green (shoulder?)
      Dwayne Bowe
      Malcolm Floyd

    • Johnny 2:02 pm on December 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Should I start Stafford or Tebow or Orton
      Should I start Megatron & Roddy White or Malcolm Floyd/A. Brown or Hewood Bey
      Should I start Jimmy Graham or J. Cook??
      Weather could be a huge factor in GB with my Detroit combo…

    • drew 11:44 am on January 1, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Of these 4, which 3 should I start?
      Bradon Marshall, Jimmy Graham, Percy Harvin and Victor Cruz…
      Thinking…Marshall, Cruz, Graham
