It’s Tim Tebow. He’ll be keeping the media’s attention on the Eagles this offseason, and he’ll be inaccurately missing receivers high, wide, and low. As Gary Shelton put it:
He remains wildly popular.
He remains largely inaccurate.

He remains a polarizing subject.
If you are looking for Tim Tebow news, which is really more entertainment than fantasy football information, just be honest with yourself. You enjoy the TMZ-ification of the NFL. You enjoy the fanfare and the drama. You likely are waiting to see which player gets cut next for a criminal incident, and you’ll click on any article that promises to reveal which supermodel a top player is dating.
There is nothing wrong with that sort of fascination. Modern American media at least shows us that it is an incredibly common fascination. And Tim Tebow is part of it.
Tim Tebow, however, is not and should not be part of any serious fantasy analysis for the 2015 season.
Even if Sam Bradford isn’t healthy and ready for Week One, Tebow won’t be relevant. Mark Sanchez would step back into the Eagles’ starting quarterback role, which he filled for a significant part of 2014. And you know what? He was competent. He completed 64.1 percent of his passes last year, a rate good enough for 16th among quarterbacks with at least 300 attempts. He threw for 14 touchdowns in 8 starts. Although Jeremy Maclin left the Eagles in the offseason, there is still fantasy value to be had in the Eagles’ quarterback position.
It might be Sam Bradford, and it might be Mark Sanchez. Either way, it won’t be Tim Tebow. He’s not fantasy relevant, and he likely won’t be ever again in his life. And that’s OK.
