Quarterback Josh Freeman will make his first start for the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night against the New York Giants, coach Leslie Frazier said Wednesday. Christian Ponder will be the backup Monday, Frazier said. Matt Cassel had started the past two games at quarterback while Ponder was sidelined with a rib injury. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:We knew this was going to happen sooner or later given the current stable of Vikings quarterbacks (Matt Cassel & Christian Ponder). Freeman gets a good fantasy matchup (vs NYG) out of the gate but should probably remain on your bench while he gets accommodated to his new surroundings.
