Tim Tebow could have an expanded role In week 5, fantasy value on the rise

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets prepared this week to give Tim Tebow an expanded role and more reps in Week 5's matchup with the Texans. After Mark Sanchez failed to produce any points on offense last week, New York is looking for a playmaker to step up.

Fantasy Impact: Here we go again. It didn't take long for Tebow-mania to strike in New York this season. Sanchez, aside from his Week 1 outing against the awful Bills defense, hasn't performed well in 2012. He only threw for 103 yards last week against the 49ers, and with the Texans bringing another tough defense to the table, the Jets are likely looking for whatever spark they can find. Expect to see more of Tebow tonight.
