Vikings will start QB Christian Ponder

Minnesota has finally announced their intent to start quarterback Christian Ponder @cponder7 in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys. The Vikings had delayed a possible decision in hopes that Josh Freeman @JF5x would be healthy enough to play. Ponder didn't do a whole lot against Green Bay last week. He only passed for 145 yards and no TDs.

Fantasy Analysis:

Ponder does have a favorable matchup here against a Dallas defense that can't seem to get out of its own way. Ponder is of course a risky start no matter who the opponent is though. Minnesota is getting minimal production from WRs Greg Jennings @GregJennings and Jerome Simpson @rome081 and TE Kyle Rudolph @KyleRudolph82 is hardly the contributor he was last season. If you're looking to save some money in your daily fantasy league, Ponder has to be a very cheap option.
