#31-2012 Christian Ponder QB Minnesota Vikings- This is the most disturbing thing about this countdown, how in the world is Ponder a mediocre QB at best ranked higher than Jay Cutler for starters.  Ponder threw for 2,900 yards 18 TD’s and 12 Int’s. Let’s be honest if Ponder is your regular fantasy starter at QB it’s going to be a very long season.

Retro-#31-Matt Hasselbeck QB Seattle Seahawks Like Taylor yesterday, Hasselbeck was a top 10 fantasy quarterback for the 2000’s.  He threw a few too many picks but he was very solid week in and week out in the great Northwest.

Looking Ahead #31

ESPN- Cam Newton-QB Carolina Panthers Newton after an extremely slow start came on strong in the 2nd half of the season along with the Panthers.  Newton and RG3 have changed rookie QB expectation in real and fantasy football forever after their play as rookies in the past couple years.

CBS– In a rare case both sites have Newton ranked at the same place.  We may get to see Newton for a series or two Friday night!
