Packers announced they officially have re-signed LB/DE Mike Neal and TE Andrew Quarless.

Fantasy Impact:

Quarless took over for Jermichael Finley after Finley went down in Week 7. From Week 8 through the Packers' playoff loss to the 49ers, Quarless averaged 2.6 catches for 27 yards and 0.20 TD, or 3.9 fantasy points per game. That's about what Brandon Pettigrew and Tyler Eifert scored in 2013, so it's not terribly promising. Moreover, his two best games -- back to back 6-66-1 outings against the Falcons and Cowboys -- came with Matt Flynn under center, so it's not clear what kind of rapport he has with Aaron RodgersAccording to Mockdraftable, he most resembles Todd Heap athletically, though it's tough to make that case using the eye test. Still, if he's starting, Quarless will be an intriguing TE2 option playing in Green Bay's high-octane offense.

Aaron Rodgers ruled out vs. Steelers
Friday, December 20, 2013, 1:53pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is officially out.

Fantasy Impact:

This is not surprising news given the way this week has gone. Owners waiting on Rodgers will have to continue to put a band aid on the QB position. Kirk Cousins, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Tannehill, Joe Flacco and Jason Campbell are all decent-to-good streaming options. Even Matt Flynn and Matt Cassel are worth consideration. Check our QB rankings to see how we believe these players will perform this week.

Matt Flynn expected to get another start
Thursday, December 19, 2013, 2:02pm

Tom Silverstein, Twitter - [Full Article]

Packers WRs said yesterday they pretty much knew who was starting and the assumption was it is Matt Flynn. Taking all the team reps says a lot.

Fantasy Impact:

Barring a surprise, it appears that Flynn will get another start. He's not trustworthy against a so-so Steelers secondary (#21 in QB aFPA).

Packers HC Mik McCarthy said he had a brief medical meeting, but frankly didn't even discuss QB Aaron Rodgers. He'll be evaluated on Wednesday and will have a plan for him.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Flynn would start again this week if Rodgers can't go. Owners look like they may have to wait until Wednesday before getting any answers as far as Rodgers and Week 16 goes. Green Bay has a pretty tough matchup against a good Steelers passing defense at home.

Packers rule Aaron Rodgers out for Week 15
Friday, December 13, 2013, 5:05pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was declared out Friday by coach Mike McCarthy after a "difficult" morning. Matt Flynn will start at quarterback. The Packers coach said Rodgers was very disappointed and frustrated with the decision and feels that he's ready to face the Cowboys on Sunday in Dallas.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Flynn gets the start against a shaky Cowboys pass defense. Our rankings won't change much since Rodgers wasn't expected to play.

ESPN Wisconsin - [Full Article]

Even with surprisingly good recall of the Packers’ playbook after his time in Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo, Matt Flynn still had only a limited menu of plays and wasn’t always certain of the play he was running (against the Lions).

“I’m definitely looking forward to getting some work in this week and getting some timing down and running a few of the plays I wasn’t as familiar with. But that’s no excuse. I knew where people were supposed to be and I knew the plays we were running,” Flynn said. “[It’s a matter of] just getting time with the receivers, getting timing down with some of the new plays we have here that I haven’t necessarily really run in practice, just getting timing down and getting the communication down with the O-line and the running backs and things like that – all the little things you miss out not being here a while. Just getting back on that rhythm.”
