Christian Ponder went 27-for-35 passing for 245 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's game between the Vikings and Colts. We break down the fantasy implications.

Christian Ponder went 27-for-35 passing for 245 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Indianapolis Colts. He found Stephen Burton and Kyle Rudolph for both of his touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. Ponder is completing 76 percent of his passes on the season and has yet to throw an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Ponder has looked much improved from his rocky rookie season. He seems to be on his way to becoming a legitimate fantasy option, though he shouldn't be considered a starter in standard leagues quite yet. The Vikings still have long way to go offensively, but so far so good for the sophomore quarterback.
