Chase Ford - Week 5 vs. Green Bay
Chase Ford is an interesting player. He has great size at 6'6", 245 pounds and runs fast for a big man (4.69 40-yard dash). He was recently signed from the practice squad following Kyle Rudolph's injury. He came in and played on 54 percent of the team's offensive snaps. He saw four targets (tied with Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson), but only caught one pass for 17 yards. He almost ended up with a touchdown, but after replay officials took it away from him.
Ford is an intriguing option with Rudolph's injury. Rhett Ellison is the starting tight end, but the Vikings used him as more of a blocker in Week 4. Ford appears to be the receiving option in Minnesota for now.
He only has 12 career receptions so he's not worth starting, but he is worth keeping an eye on in the future.
