    Chase Ford hauls in first touchdown pass

    Vikings tight end Chase Ford has found his place in the offense and looks like he might be someone for Fantasy owners to keep an eye on after scoring his first touchdown in Week 9 against the Redskins. Forde snagged five of seven passes thrown his way for 66 yards, one week after hauling in all six passes for 61 yards. He has become a bigger part of the team's offense recently, and scored the lone passing touchdown in Sunday's win over Washington, on a 20-yard pass from Teddy Bridgewater. Ford has 30-plus receiving yards in four of the last five games, and has steadily increased his production throughout the season. He should not be viewed as a starting Fantasy option, but might be someone worth keeping an eye on on waivers moving forward.
