Vikings | Unsure on starting QB

The Minnesota Vikings are unsure who their starting quarterback will be in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys, but it will not be QB Matt Cassel, according to head coach Leslie Frazier. QB Christian Ponder went 14-for-21 for just 145 yards in the team's Week 8 loss to the Green Bay Packers a week after QB Josh Freeman (concussion) had an embarrassing debut. "I don't want to discount Matt," Frazier said. "But Christian did some good things in that ballgame yesterday. There are some things he can obviously do better, but it has something to do with it. He has led us to some wins in the past." Freeman was able to run over the weekend without concussions symptoms for the first time since being hurt in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: The decision will probably come down to how healthy Freeman is and if he's cleared from his concussion. Either way, Ponder and Freeman are only desperation options for those in leagues that start two QBs.
