Christian Ponder went 16-for-26 passing for 111 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions during Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. It was his second consecutive game with less than 200 yards passing, and his first without a touchdown since the season opener. The Vikings running game shined with 127 yards in the win.
Fantasy Impact: Ponder looked like he was becoming a deep-league fantasy option with back-to-back two-touchdown passing performances. Sunday's game against the Lions was a setback in a way, though he is still playing fairly well for the Vikings even if he isn't putting up particularly remarkable numbers. Ponder is a low-end QB2 option in fantasy leagues that go that deep, but he is worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses.
