Vikes won't name starting QB until well into training camp
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/17/14) While most expect Matt Cassel to open the season as the Vikings' quarterback, coach Mike Zimmer told USA Today he won't name a starter until well into training camp.

"I want to give everybody an opportunity and make sure that it's a legitimate opportunity for all of them," Zimmer said after the team opened its mandatory minicamp Tuesday. "Then we'll start narrowing down the reps as we get going. But it won't be for a while."

Cassel will have to fend off rookie Teddy Bridgewater and former first-rounder Christian Ponder.

Zimmer declares Vikings starting QB job open
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/14) Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said he plans on giving all of his quarterbacks an opportunity to compete for the starting job in camp, suggesting that rookie Teddy Bridgewater could overtake veteran Matt Cassel for the gig. 

"Everybody wants to rush into things," Zimmer said according to ESPN. "I want to give everybody an opportunity and make sure it's a legitimate opportunity for all of them. And we'll start narrowing down the reps as we get going."

Cassel had taken the majority of snaps through the early OTAs with Bridgewater behind him and Christian Ponder running third string. It was previously believed that Cassel would begin the year as the starter and eventually give way for Bridgewater. 

Zimmer said he wouldn't name a starter "for a while."

Christian Ponder: Matt Cassel is the starter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/15/14) Quarterback Christian Ponder said the Vikings will start Matt Cassel while trying to get rookie Teddy Bridgewater ready to play, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Ponder isn't getting as many practice reps as the other two QBs.

"We'll see how it plays out once it goes to training camp, but obviously there's an agenda to try to get Teddy ready, and Cassel's the starter right now," Ponder told the paper.

Matt Cassel expected to open camp as starter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/6/14) Veteran Matt Cassel "figures" to open training camp as the Vikings' starting quarterback, ahead of rookie Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder, reports ESPN.com. Cassel, 32, threw for 1,807 yards and 11 touchdowns with nine interceptions in nine games last season.
Fantasy owners might have to wait for Teddy Bridgewater
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/14) The Vikings have plans to not rush Teddy Bridgewater along in his progress and have no problems starting the season with Matt Cassel as their starting quarterback. 

"There is no pressure on this kid to come in and play," GM Rick Spielman said. "We're very comfortable with Matt Cassel right now. We're very comfortable with Christian Ponder. He'll come in and compete and then the coaches will determine if he's even ready to play this year."

With playing time not promised to Bridgewater and a good but not great receiving corps waiting for him even if he does play, Fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited about his prospects this season. That can change of course if he does do well in training camp and unseats Cassel. Until then, he's only worth drafting with a middle- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a pick between fifth and 15th overall in rookie-only drafts.
