There are still some who believe Tim Tebow will make an impact in the National Football League this season, despite the fact that he is now an SEC Network analyst.

Check out this crazy fantasy football stat:

As of Tuesday at 11:20 a.m. ET, 1.3 percent of ESPN fantasy owners have the former NFL quarterback on their team.

Tebow hasn't played in a regular-season game since he was a member of the New York Jets back in 2012, and he hasn't even been on an NFL team since the summer of 2013. Yet fantasy owners are still willing to take a chance on him.

Fantasy owners can do what they want, but having Tebow on your team right now may not be the best strategy for winning.
