Matt Flynn Fantasy News
Packers re-sign TE Andrew Quarless
Thursday, March 13, 2014, 2:28pm
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 Rodgers. According 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
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

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).

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.”
