Vikings | Christian Ponder receives another start

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 09:43:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said QB Christian Ponder will be the starting quarterback Week 12. Frazier said QB Matt Cassel likely will be the No. 2 quarterback, but QB Josh Freeman could also be active for the game.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay Packers present a better opportunity for Ponder to succeed, and he's familiar with them, but it's still best to stay away from him unless you're desperate in leagues where you start two QBs.

Vikings | HC mum on Week 12 quarterback

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 20:00:34 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier was non-committal when asked Sunday, Nov. 17, who his Week 12 quarterback would be against the Green Bay Packers. QB Christian Ponder was terrible in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks, so QB Matt Cassel or QB Josh Freeman could get another chance.

Fantasy Tip: This is a situation to avoid in all scenarios.

Vikings | Christian Ponder taking first-team snaps

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 11:18:44 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder (shoulder) took most of the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, and expects to play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Leslie Frazier is still unsure if Ponder will start, and he said QB Josh Freeman is a candidate to start if Ponder can't go. "Ponder looked good," said WR Greg Jennings. "He practiced and (was) getting the game plan in and making some throws."

Fantasy Tip: Ponder shouldn't be in any starting lineups this weekend against a ferocious Seahawks defense.

When they need me to go in I plan to go in and play well, whenever that may be."

Vikings | Teammate supports Christian Ponder as starter

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 09:26:40 -0700

Minnesota Vikings C John Sullivan is supporting QB Christian Ponder as the team's starter, and he thinks he should receive a second straight start against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9. "(Ponder) prepared really hard and he went out there and laid it all on the line," Sullivan said. "You know, you see that last run that he made when things were getting out of reach (a 19-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter against the Packers on Sunday) and he's still out there fighting until the end. I mean, that's not my decision. But I'd love to see him stay back there, of course."

Fantasy Tip: Leslie Frazier is keeping everyone in the dark about who the starting quarterback will be against Dallas this weekend. It's between Ponder and Josh Freeman. Neither guy should be in your starting lineup, however, if they get the nod.

Vikings | Back to Josh Freeman at QB?

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 18:55:29 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings have not announced a starting quarterback for Week 9, but ESPN's Ed Werder expects that the team will turn to QB Josh Freeman (concussion) again after QB Christian Ponder was unimpressive in place of Freeman in Week 8.

Vikings | No decision on starting QB

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 10:43:00 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier has not made a decision on who will start at quarterback between QBs Christian Ponder and Josh Freeman in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Frazier to make a decision until the end of the week, and it'll likely depend on whether the team trusts Freeman after coming off his concussion. Either way, neither QB is trustworthy as a fantasy starter.

Vikings | Unsure on starting QB

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 12:53:31 -0700

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.

Vikings | Josh Freeman cleared

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:28:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman (concussion) was cleared to return to practice Friday, Oct. 25, and head coach Leslie Frazier said Freeman will return to full practice next week. It's likely that Freeman will receive another chance to start after his unsuccessful debut in Week 7. "Looking back, maybe I was a little too fired up at first," he said. "There's definitely a lot of correctable things, things that going into the game I would've banked on me being able to complete or get done on the field, but at the same time we weren't able to do so, so I'm moving forward and just got to find a way to be better prepared." Frazier said he saw some mechanical issues that Freeman can correct.

Fantasy Tip: Whether Freeman starts in Week 9 will likely be determined by how well Christian Ponder plays this weekend against the Green Bay Packers. Stay tuned.

Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is not expected to play this weekend, with Christian Ponder taking over. It's conceivable that Ponder could win back the starting job with a nice performance against the Green Bay Packers.

Vikings | Christian Ponder likely to play

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 10:23:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder is likely to start in Week 8 against the Green Bay Packers with QB Josh Freeman (concussion) going through concussion protocol this week. Freeman "wasn't feeling so well" after arriving at the team's complex Wednesday, Oct. 23. Ponder will take the first-team repetitions at practice Wednesday and beyond.

Fantasy Tip: Ponder gives the Vikes a better chance for success because he's much more familiar with the offense than Freeman is. Freeman's lack of timing and rust showed in his terrible performance in Week 7. Ponder is only a desperation play for those in two-QB leagues.

Vikings | Josh Freeman has concussion

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 09:40:49 -0700

Vikings | Josh Freeman mostly ineffective in first start

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 21:06:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman made his first start for the team in Week 7 against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 21. He completed 20 of his 53 pass attempts for 190 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman did not appear to be on the same page as his receivers, and to be fair, he has been with the team for just about two weeks. If you're a fantasy owner looking for help at the QB position, even just as a bye-week replacement, Freeman is only worth a look as a QB2 in the deepest of leagues which require two starting signal callers. He needs to show consistency before standard owners pay him any mind.

Vikings | Josh Freeman expected to start

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 10:11:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said he expects that QB Josh Freeman will be the starting quarterback Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is working on learning the offense and appears to be on track to start this week. Freeman could be an option for desperate owners in all leagues looking for a quarterback. Freeman could be a No. 2 quarterback for owners in deeper leagues for the rest of the season.

Vikings | Josh Freeman could start

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 05:24:55 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings could start QB Josh Freeman this week if they are satisfied with his knowledge of the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: We have a feeling that he has a good chance to play this week. They play on Monday night against the New York Giants, and he would be a solid QB2 play if he can run a full offense. Adrian Peterson's fantasy outlook would improve drastically with Freeman under center. Jerome Simpson could have better consistency if he and Freeman are on the same page. However, Freeman has never really used tight ends too much, which could hurt Kyle Rudolph's value.

Vikings | QB situation unclear

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 13:50:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier did not indicate who would be his starting quarterback in Week 7 against the New York Giants after QB Matt Cassel and company took another defeat in Week 6. "Yeah, I want to go back and evaluate what Matt did in this ballgame and then make a determination as we go this week," Frazier said when asked if he was undecided about his starting quarterback. Cassel went 32-for-44 with 241 yards and a touchdown and two interceptions. QB Josh Freeman was inactive, and the team is unsure if he'll have a good enough grip of the offense to start this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel didn't look very good yesterday, and the team is likely just using him as a placeholder until Freeman is ready to go. It's doubtful that Christian Ponder is an option.

Vikings | Christian Ponder unhappy

Thu, 10 Oct 2013 16:02:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder is unhappy with the way things have turned out. QB Matt Cassel had the majority of first-team repetitions in practice Thursday, Oct. 10, and he's expected to start over Ponder in Week 6. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed. We'll see how things play out," Ponder said of all the recent developments at quarterback, via Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "Some of the dynamics of this organization have changed, obviously ... But I'm preparing like I'm going to be on the field."

Fantasy Tip: Josh Freeman is expected to eventually take over as the starting quarterback once he's up to speed. Ponder basically has no future left in Minnesota at this point.
