Tebow or Eli Manning??

Postby doober » Sun Nov 13, 2011 8:09 am

All the rankings that I've looked at indicated Eli around the #5 QB this week and Tebow around 8-10. I really think Tebow will out perform this week because of his rushing yards and the KC defense. Eli could be down a few weapons and playing the 49ers which I could see being a 20 to 17 game or something like that. G-men just coming off the big win against the Pats I see this being a let down game.

Any thoughts here gents? this is a standard scoring league.

1 pt per 25 yds passing
4 pts per td
1 pt per 10 rushing
6 pts per td rushing

Tebow is not someone I can recommend. Eli is having one of his best seasons, and I think that you need to keep him in your lineup.

Best of luck.
Please help.

Yes, yes, most of the time Tebow is a terrible QB in real life (he seems to have a knack for the 4th quarter though), but fantasy is a different story. It doesn't matter if he leads his team to a win, you don't get points for that. What does matter is that he runs the ball a lot, which gives you more points than if he threw it.
Honestly, I'd take the gamble and start Tebow while he's still the starter in Denver.

This is very tough. I can see Tebow lighting it up in fantasy against the chiefs and he certainly has more upside based on the matchups. Eli is playing at an elite level and the 49ers are vulnerable against the pass which the giants will have to do to win. I'd go with Eli I think he'll put up solid numbers. if you're more of a gambling man roll the dice with Tebow.
