News: Ponder was promoted to serve as Colin Kaepernick's backup prior to Sunday's loss to Atlanta, CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Ponder has spent the entire regular season as the 49ers' inactive third quarterback. With the club receiving inconsistent play under center between Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert, the coaching staff may be inching towards giving the former first-rounder a look in the final game or two. No official change has been announced, but if Ponder were to receive playing time, he would be a low-upside fantasy option due to his reputation as a "game manager."
