A friend of mine new to fantasy football asked me the other day how Denver Broncos miracle man Tim Tebow was a top-10 quarterback despite seemingly below-average numbers. Look at the passing numbers, there's not much there. He hasn't scored a rushing touchdown since Week 10, so that hasn't been a major differentiator of late. What exactly is Tebow doing to become a top-10 fantasy quarterback over the past eight weeks?

It's about the turnovers, baby. In Tebow's case, it's about the lack thereof.
