ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen added Tim Tebow in fantasy

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is one of the best NFL reporters in the business. He's made a habit of breaking big news. So what information is he sitting on that led him to pick up American Hero Tim Tebow in his fantasy league? 

Mort also added Jimmy Clausen and Josh McCown. He's stockpiling terrible quarterbacks.

The screenshot Schefter tweeted also shows a post Mortensen made titled "The Challenge." It's certainly possible Mortensen's challenge is to win his matchup with the worst quarterback possible. 

In fact, on Wednesday's Grantland NFL podcast, an ESPN production, hosts Bill Barnwell and Robert Mays challenged listeners to do just that.
