Fantasy Analysis

By rewarding Matt Cassel with a two-year, $10 million deal and drafting Teddy Bridgewater, the Vikings clearly have decided that Ponder is not their franchise quarterback of the future. However, they apparently seem content to keep their 2011 first-round draft selection in the fold as a third-stringer or emergency fill-in. Last season Ponder averaged just 201 passing yards and 0.9 touchdown passes per game in nine starts. By the way, he missed seven contests due to injuries. The athletic triggerman is considered a decent short- to medium-range passer, and he loves to use his tight ends. However, the biggest knock on the scrappy fourth-year pro is his failure to develop as a downfield passer. Ponder is unable or unwilling to push the ball down the field to his wide outs with consistency, and the touch on his deep throws remains very suspect. Ponder passed for 300-plus yards in only two of his 35 career starts. As a fill-in starter, Ponder has journeyman-level talent and very marginal fantasy appeal.

Passing: 2500 Yards, 16 TD, 15 INT.
Rushing: 250 Yards, 1 TD.
