The Denver Broncos defense won't be the only one in this game to be keyed in on the run. The Chicago Bears and their top-three run defense will be focused on a single thing: containing Denver quarterback Tim Tebow.
Tebow's had quite a run of fantasy success despite still struggling as a traditional quarterback. In his time under center, Tebow has completed just 47.5 percent of his passes for 1,054 yards, but he's thrown 10 touchdown passes to just one interception and has rushed 82 times for 468 yards and three scores on top of it.
The Bears are in a bad way, losing both quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte to injuries that will likely keep both men sidelined for the remainder of the regular season.
With a playoff berth still very much in the team's grasp, they're going to have to get there with inaccurate passer Caleb Hanie under center and Marion Barber taking over for the league's best back, Forte.
That leaves just the Bears' vaunted defense to carry much of the load. The key to stopping the Broncos is pressure on Tebow—keep him contained in the pocket, sack him while he tries to find an open receiver and never let him break free and run.
The Detroit Lions had a lot of success employing this strategy in Week 8, and though Tebow escaped the day with a decent fantasy bottom line, the Bears are going to be attacking with even more ferocity.
At some point, the bottom will have to drop out of the Tebow experiment, even if for just a week. He's as risky a play as there's been this season. If you start him, beware that the magic might not happen this week.
If you're that worried, then by all means, start another quarterback in his stead.
