Vikings stick by Christian Ponder despite fantasy struggles

Joe Robbins

Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier remains committed to quarterback Christian Ponder. We break down the fantasy implications.

Despite his recent struggles, Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier reinforced his commitment to quarterback Christian Ponder after the Vikings 23-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Ponder went 12-for-25 with 119 yards passing, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Ponder has struggled this season, particularly with Percy Harvin out of the lineup. Ponder has passed for under 200 yards six times this season.

Fantasy Impact: Ponder did not throw any interceptions in the first four games of the season, but has thrown 11 interceptions in the last eight games.

The Vikings will stick by Ponder all season and hopefully Percy Harvin will return from injury soon and give Ponder a boost. Still, he is not a strong fantasy quarterback option even with Harvin.
