Fantasy sports: Tim Tebow on the QB carousel

The Broncos are going to implement a new scheme to fit Peyton Manning.

Peyton Manning just had to come in and ruin everything.

Tim Tebow was on his way to fantasy stardom as Denver’s starting
quarterback. Now he’s borderline undraftable as a wildcat specialist and
backup in New York. Here’s the rest of the fallout from the spinning
QB?carousel:   

Passing Denver
Willis McGahee is done.
Peyton Manning’s running backs need to excel in the passing game and
that’s exactly where McGahee struggles. Meanwhile, Demaryius Thomas,
whose skills have been compared to Calvin?Johnson’s, has the look of a
WR2 with upside. The physical Eric Decker gets a big boost as well.   

Running Jets
Shonn
Greene already struggled in short yardage last season. Now he has an
elite goal-line back, Tebow, to contend with. Expect the Jets to put in
plenty of red-zone packages for Tebow, thus limiting Greene’s
opportunities.  

Lock up Locker   
The Titans went
after Manning hard and came up empty. That’s good news for Jake Locker,
who has a cannon for an arm and mini-Tebow legs. With Manning out of the
mix, Locker should have no problem beating out Matt Hasselbeck for the
starting gig. Lots of sleeper potential.
