Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder didn't look good during practice Wednesday, June 19. "Watching Christian Ponder out there, the footwork didn't look great," Judd Zulgad, of 1500ESPN.com, said. "The passes didn't look all that sharp."
Fantasy Tip: This isn't a good start for Ponder, although it's still early in the offseason. The longer he doesn't gel in Bill Musgrave's offense, though, the more we'll hear rumblings that Matt Cassel may take over as the starter. Whoever is under center for Minnesota isn't very intriguing, though, and Greg Jennings and company may find it difficult to see consistent looks in the passing game.

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder might be challenged by Matt Cassel for the starting job during the 2013 season.
Fantasy Tip: Neither QB gives us the warm and fuzzies for fantasy value, and with the way Cassel has performed of late, a switch to him wouldn't necessarily present an upgrade, even if Ponder struggles. It could be an ugly year surrounding Adrian Peterson in Minny.

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder remains the unquestioned starter entering his third NFL season. However, if he goes into a protracted slump like last season, the coaching staff could be inclined to take a look at QB Matt Cassel, who will make $3.7 million this season even if he doesn't take a snap. Cassel fits the system of offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave better than QB Joe Webb, who is expected to serve as the third QB.

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel said he understands that he will be the No. 2 quarterback and that QB Christian Ponder will be the team's starting quarterback. "They said they're looking to bring somebody in with experience who could come in and basically be somebody who can step in if need be. The fact of the matter is, again, Christian is the starting quarterback. I think we'll have a great [meeting] room. I'm there to add value. I'm there to help him out in whatever capacity that is, and go from there," Cassel said.

The Minnesota Vikings have signed free-agent QB Matt Cassel (Chiefs). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Cassel likely will be the No. 2 quarterback unless Christian Ponder struggles. Even if he did get the starting job, he likely would not be a fantasy option because of the team's wide receiver situation.
