Christian Ponder injury update: Probable and has good fantasy upside

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Christian Ponder is probable for Week 6 against the Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder (knee) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Ponder got a full week of practice in and there's no chance of him missing the game this week.

Ponder is enjoying a breakout in his sophomore season, completing 69% of his passes for 1,082 yards and six TDS.

Fantasy Impact: After an up-and-down rookie year, Ponder is one of the key cogs in Minnesota's surprising 4-1 start. He has a great fantasy matchup against the Redskins' porous pass defense this week. Rather than being a mere bye-week filler, Ponder is showing himself to be a legitimate QB2 play in most fantasy weeks. Fantasy owners can safely plug him in this week without being disappointed.
