2013 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Jul-29-2013 by Rob Warner

The 12th overall pick in the 2011 draft could be facing a make or break season in his 3rd year in the NFL . He's been labeled as a bit of weak armed game manager, but does have the athleticism to excel outside the pocket. To remain under center, Ponder will need to improve dramatically on his weak 6.2 YPA over 774 career passes. The loss of Percy Harvin (Seattle) could keep Ponder off the fantasy radar in 2013, but he will benefit from the addition of veteran Greg Jennings and selection of downfield threat Cordarrelle Patterson (University of Tennessee). Ponder's 2012 statistics were mediocre with Harvin (first eight games of the year), as the Florida State alum totaled 1,743 yards (218 YPG) on 171 of 262 passing (65% percent) for 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. With Harvin sidelined, Ponder's production fell to1,192 yards (150 YPG) on 129 of 221 passing (58%) with eight touchdowns and five interceptions. At best, Ponder is a late-round pick that can be used as a bye week filler as this offense will continue to be one of the more run heavy attacks in the NFL.
