New York Giants QB Ryan Nassib was working as the primary backup to QB Eli Manning (ankle) during practice Wednesday, May 28, in organized team activities (OTAs). QB Curtis Painter (knee) and QB Josh Freeman also took reps.
Fantasy Tip: Nassib is believed to be on the roster bubble, so he'll need a good showing in offseason workouts, training camp and the preseason to stick. As long as Eli Manning (ankle) is healthy, Nassib won't really sniff the field anyway.
Thu, 01 May 2014 12:51:39 -0700
New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said he is keeping his options open when it comes to QB Ryan Nassib. "We like Nassib, but he really hasn't had the chance to do a lot for us, and so we're going to take a real good look at him in the spring. We still think he's a really good player. He hasn't had the chance to play yet, but he's going to get a lot of work this spring, and obviously he'll get a lot of work in the preseason. Along with Curtis Painter and Josh Freeman there's competition."

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.
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.

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.
Sat, 09 Nov 2013 07:58:29 -0800
Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman said he wants to start again, and said he is making progress since his first game. "I'm making a lot of progress from my first game," Freeman said in the locker room. "I can't speak for the coaches. I can't speak for (head coach) Leslie (Frazier). I'm just working as hard as I can. When they need me to go in I plan to go in and play well, whenever that may be."
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 16:52:37 -0800

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.
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.
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.
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.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 16:19:02 -0700
The Minnesota Vikings have declared DL Chase Baker, OG Jeff Baca, QB Josh Freeman, RB Matt Asiata, TE Rhett Ellison, WR Rodney Smith, CB Shaun Prater inactive for Week 8.

Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman (concussion) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 8 game.
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.
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:36:34 -0700
Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:30:49 -0700

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 14:23:42 -0700
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.
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.
Wed, 23 Oct 2013 09:40:49 -0700
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said QB Josh Freeman (concussion) has a concussion, and the team is preparing as if Freeman will not play Week 8. QB Christian Ponder will start if Freeman is unable to play.
Fantasy Tip: Owners in any league should not consider using Freeman or Ponder as their starting quarterback this week.
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 12:18:19 -0700
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said QB Josh Freeman will start in the team's Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers
Fantasy Tip: Coming off a bad outing in Week 7, Freeman has no fantasy value at this point.
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.
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.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 09:51:03 -0700
Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder likely will start Week 7 if the team does not believe QB Josh Freeman is ready to play in a game.
