49ers | Christian Ponder pushing to start?

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 12:54:11 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Christian Ponder has "support" in locker room and "is considered the best option for quarterback on the roster", according to at least one source.

Fantasy Tip: Former league executive Joe Banner revealed on Friday that during an interview for the Cleveland Browns' head job in 2013, Chip Kelly told him that Ponder fit the profile of what he wanted out of a quarterback for his system. Blaine Gabbert isn't winning any supporters - or games for that matter - and Colin Kaepernick is consistently getting outperformed by Gabbert in practices. Expect Ponder to get a start sooner than later, perhaps as early as Week 6 versus the Buffalo Bills.

Vikings | Rough game for Christian Ponder

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 21:02:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder completed 22 of his 44 pass attempts and threw two interceptions and no touchdowns in the team's Week 5 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He rushed three times for 15 yards and a touchdown and was sacked six times.

Fantasy Tip: Ponder started in place of the injured Teddy Bridgewater and looked horrible in an ugly loss. Ponder's performance should ensure that Bridgewater will start for the remainder of the season as soon as he is healthy enough to play.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater inactive

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 14:33:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Green Bay Packers. QB Christian Ponder will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to stay away from Ponder tonight considering it's his first start of the season, though, his FantasyScore price is extremely cheap at $3,700.

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder is expected to start in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Oct. 2, with QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) a game-time decision.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, you'll want to keep Bridgewater out of all of your daily lineups this week. Ponder will be cheap at FantasyScore, but you should look elsewhere.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater looking unlikely

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 07:25:07 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is looking unlikely to play Thursday, Oct. 2, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The signs are pointing to QB Christian Ponder starting against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Bridgewater ($4,500; 9% of your cap) or Ponder are good starts this week on FantasyScore.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater remains hopeful

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:13:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is feeling "much better" Tuesday, Sept. 30, and head coach Mike Zimmer remains hopeful that Bridgewater can play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Oct. 2. If Bridgewater is going to throw and push off his left foot, he'll likely do so during a walk-through Wednesday, Oct. 1. QB Christian Ponder would make his first start of the year if Bridgewater doesn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is cheap again at FantasyScore ($4,800; 9.6% of cap), but he's not a wise selection for your roster if he's not 100 percent during a short week.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater misses practice

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 15:06:19 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 29. QB Christian Ponder worked with the first-team offense during practice.

Fantasy Tip: The team hopes Bridgewater will be able to play, but Ponder would get the start if Bridgewater sits out. Ponder should not be a starting option in any league and the team's wide receivers probably would lose some fantasy value if Ponder starts.

Vikings | Christian Ponder saves job?

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 18:22:02 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder had a solid training camp and likely saved his job with significant work and production in the preseason finale. He might have some value if the team is not ready to put QB Teddy Bridgewater onto the field and they need someone to fill in for QB Matt Cassel.

Vikings | Christian Ponder changes tune

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 15:30:28 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder said he has not requested a trade and believes remaining in Minnesota is beneficial to his development. Ponder is expected to remain with the Vikings, at least for the time being.

National Football Post writer Aaron Wilson speculates Ponder could land with the San Francisco 49ers, considering how poorly 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert has played this preseason.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater at No. 2

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 07:33:32 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is entrenched as the No. 2 quarterback, and the team is confident with him there. QB Christian Ponder could be traded if he performs well enough.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is likely to sit behind Matt Cassel for a while and doesn't have much value in single-year leagues.

Vikings | QBs splitting reps

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:12:46 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder have been evenly splitting reps during the early part of training camp, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner will split the reps two ways after the team's upcoming off day.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Cassel is the leading candidate for the starting job at this point but all three are still options for the job. Cassel likely would be a desperation matchup play if he wins the starting job. Bridgewater and Ponder likely would not have much fantasy value even if they win the job.

Vikings | Christian Ponder has done well

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:17:34 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel saw a majority of the snaps during spring workouts, but QB Christian Ponder has a chance to start, and head coach Mike Zimmer claims it will be a fair competition. "Actually, I think Christian has done a very good job in the time that we've had him and how much he has improved in that amount of time," Zimmer said. "We're going to give everyone a fair shot, and preseason games will help determine it. We want someone who is going to take care of the football, lead the team in the right direction and when called upon be able to win football games."
