As the Minnesota Vikings continue to switch starting quarterbacks, the fantasy values of both Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel continue to change.
The Vikings fell behind the Seattle Seahawks early in Week 11, and Ponder struggled. He completed 13 of 22 passes for 129 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions before being pulled from the game. That was good enough for just three fantasy points in ESPN's standard-scoring leagues, with quarterbacks like Matt Simms and Matt Schaub scoring more points in Week 11.

Cassel didn't do much better filling in, throwing an interception on just his second attempted pass.
With the offense falling apart, neither of these players is a reliable fantasy option at quarterback, even in deeper leagues. Ponder has struggled mightily, and despite being named the starter against Green Bay, he could easily be replaced by Cassel or Josh Freeman at any point.
Ponder starts Sunday, Frazier said. "I'm sure some of the follow-up questions will be, 'Why?'" Had some success against #Packers in past.— Ben Goessling (@GoesslingESPN) November 20, 2013
The quarterback situation is a mess in Minnesota, so it's best to stay away from both of these players regardless of who starts.
