Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is listed as probable for this week's game with the Detroit Lions. Ponder was added to the team's injury report earlier this week after experiencing some tension in his neck. Ponder is expected to start on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Ponder has turned in two straight solid fantasy performances while leading the Vikings to a 2-1 record. He is by no means a must start this week against Detroit but he could be a good pickup for an owner needing a bye week replacement. The Lions allowed Jake Locker to throw for 378 yards last week, so this could be a good time for an owner in need of a replacement to consider using Ponder.
