Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder remains the starter. We break down the fantasy implications.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was not going to be replaced during Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks, according to coach Leslie Frazier. In fact, Frazier said on Monday that he's never really considered replacing Ponder.
Ponder and the Vikings finished Sunday with 63 passing yards and frustration with the offense boiled over when Percy Harvin was seen yelling at Frazier on the sideline. Harvin afterward did not reveal what he said but admitted that it was "frustrating not scoring." The Vikings play the Detroit Lions in Week 10.
Fantasy Impact: Any fantasy owner stuck with Ponder on Sunday was probably yelling just like Harvin. Ponder has thrown for less than 100 yards in two of the last three games for Minnesota, which has dropped out of a playoff spot in the NFC.
Ponder had a few strong games in September and October but is not a viable fantasy option heading into Week 10.
