Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Detroit Lions and we break down the fantasy implications

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He is dealing with a back injury, but he was only limited during Wednesday's practice. The Vikings do not appear concerned about his ability to play in Sunday's game.

Fantasy Impact: Christian Ponder has quietly been one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL this season. He is piling up yardage and completing a very high percentage of his passes. The Vikings' offense has plenty of firepower. Between Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin and Kyle Rudolph, Ponder has an assortment of weapons at his disposal. Deep threat Jerome Simpson will also be returning from suspension, adding another dimension to the offense. Ponder is a sneaky play against a brutally-bad Lions secondary.
