7 catches for 140 yards is hard to ignore. Is he finally ready to put together a breakout season? Or is this just a tease?

Gah! Wish that I could tell you, but my time machine is in the shop today. He looked good out there this afternoon, and as far as the future goes, your guess is as good as anyone else's.

14-team, non-PPR/standard, re-draft league:

QB: Ben Roethlisberger [Josh McCown]
WR: Josh Gordon
WR: Martavis Bryant
WR: Denard Robinson [Josh Gordon, Alshon Jeffrey, Cecil Shorts III]
RB: Jamaal Charles
RB: Jonas Gray [Denard Robinson, Daniel Herron]
TE:  Mychal Rivera
K: Justin Tucker
DEF: KC

Is this guy worth something in a deep league where you are starting 11 off players?

I'm a Vikings fan, if Ponder starts, don't even bother picking him up. Ponder isn't much of a QB lol, Jennings should be his first read, but Ponder just doesn't have the field view to notice it.

How is this guy flying so far under the radar? I know he has no TDs but 19 catches for 342 yards through 4 games? I don't even see him at all on the weekly WR ranks out there. I'm not saying he's a stud, but you still think a guy on pace for 76 catches and and 1370 yards would be talked about a little more?

Stashing him and hoping this is the year he breaks out. I don't think he will sustain that pace (76/1370) but I wouldnt be surprised to see 60 cacthes for 1000 yards and 4TD's. The guy has all the talent and athletic ability in the world, but never put it all together and hasn't stayed healthy for a full year. He's def worth a roster spot. Jerome Simpson is only owned in 14% of leagues, but is among the league leaders in yards and YPC.

If the upgrade at QB stays, that pace is going to go up as the season goes on.

According to ESPN 1500 Twin Cities' Judd Zulgad, Christian Ponder has a fractured rib near his heart.
Zulgad suspects Ponder will wind up missing 3-4 games. He already missed Week 4, and the Vikings are on a Week 5 bye. So per Zulgad's projection, Ponder should be healthy by Week 8 or 9. This will be Matt Cassel's window to steal the starting job for good. Despite coach Leslie Frazier's public denials, multiple national reports have indicated Cassel is very much in the hunt to start for Minnesota the rest of the way, dependent upon short-term performance.
