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 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.
