Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) has been ruled out for the team's Week 15 game.
Fantasy Tip: Matt Flynn will once again get the start in Week 15, as doctors would not clear Rodgers to return.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 09:09:03 -0800
Medical experts believe Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to be cleared to play in Week 15 because he is less than six weeks removed from suffering his broken collarbone. Complete bone formation typically takes eight to 10 weeks, meaning he'd be risking more serious injury if he played before the eight weeks. The Packers' medical staff is among the most conservative in the league in returning players to the field too soon. "We would need different results and different responses to be able to get on the field this week," Rodgers said.
Fantasy Tip: It's looking highly unlikely that Rodgers plays this weekend again, and depending on the outcome of the game, he could very well be shut down for the rest of the regular season. We fully expect Matt Flynn to start against the Dallas Cowboys.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 13:28:20 -0800
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team plans on starting QB Matt Flynn at quarterback Week 15 at this point.
Fri, 06 Dec 2013 10:54:19 -0800
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) has been ruled out for the team's Week 14 game.
Fantasy Tip: Matt Flynn will see his second straight start. It's unwise to rely on Flynn against the Atlanta Falcons. If the Packers lose again this weekend, there is a real possibility that Green Bay shuts Rodgers down for the season.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 10:36:48 -0800
Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn got first-team repetitions in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 05:44:45 -0800
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is unlikely to return for Week 14. QB Matt Flynn is likely to start.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is practicing on a limited basis, which suggests he has a decent chance to play in Week 15.
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 13:24:36 -0800
Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn will take the starting reps in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 10:36:18 -0800
Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn will start the team's Week 13 game against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Fantasy Tip: Flynn is an interesting starting option this week, with a nice match up against the Lions. If you are looking for help at quarterback in deeper leagues he is worth a look.
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 00:03:30 -0800
Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz is preparing his game to face either Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers or QB Matt Flynn, or even QB Scott Tolzien although most media reports have Flynn definitely starting the game on Thursday, Nov. 28. "We have game plans ready for all those different things," Schwartz said. "Whatever quarterback they throw out there, we'll be ready. We've looked at all three of them that have potential to be able to play in this game."
Tue, 26 Nov 2013 12:53:41 -0800
Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn took the "starter reps" in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26, but head coach Mike McCarthy has yet to name Flynn the starter in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions. QB Scott Tolzien was pulled in Week 12 in the third quarter against the Minnesota Vikings. "I'm very comfortable," said Flynn, who was the Packers' backup from 2008-2011. "I feel good with the playbook. I feel good with the game plan. I feel ready to go."
Fantasy Tip: Flynn is most comfortable in this offense. The matchup against Detroit isn't a bad one if you need another QB in leagues that start two quarterbacks.
Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:35:31 -0800
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) likely will not play in the team's Week 13 game. McCarthy said either QB Matt Flynn or QB Scott Tolzien likely will start the game.
Fantasy Tip: It appears likely Rodgers is at least a week away from returning to the field. It is not known if Flynn or Tolzien will start, but only desperate owners should consider starting either one this week.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 17:00:25 -0800
Green Bay QB Matt Flynn came on for an ineffective QB Scott Tolzien in Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings. Flynn threw for 218 yards, and helped the team come back from 16-point deficit early in the fourth quarter to tie and force overtime. The teams exchanged field goals in overtime, but the game ended in a 26-26 tie.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 12:22:29 -0800

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 16:53:02 -0800
The Green Bay Packers worked out free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Bills) Monday, Nov. 11, and will sign him.
Fantasy Tip: Apparently Flynn's elbow checked out satisfactorily. It appears Scott Tolzien will still start in Week 11 for the Packers, but Flynn could very well see time as a starter at some point since he already knows the offense. Still, fantasy owners shouldn't expect too much. Remember, this guy was beaten out for the starting gig in Seattle and Oakland, and was cut in Buffalo.
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 13:57:48 -0800
Free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Bills) impressed head coach Mike McCarthy during his workout Monday, Nov. 11. "(Flynn) went through his workout this morning. (He) looks good," McCarthy said. "That's really all I have for you right now. Everything else is a work in progress ... A lot of the information that you need to make decisions is still coming in, so we're still trying to put it all together."
Fantasy Tip: If Flynn signs, he'd serve as the backup to Scott Tolzien until Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns. Flynn won't be a viable fantasy option in any leagues.
Sun, 10 Nov 2013 20:51:08 -0800

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 11:32:42 -0700
The Buffalo Bills are holding out hope that QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) can play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team plans on having him throw later Friday, Nov. 1, and work out again Saturday, Nov. 2, before making a final determination. "We're trying to hold out to see if Thad will be ready. We feel that if he is, we have the option to play him if he's healthy enough for us to win," head coach Doug Marrone said. "When you're dealing with muscle injuries, they kind of take it all the way up until game time. This one's a pain tolerance situation to see what he can do." QB Jeff Tuel has a better understanding of the team's offense and is favored to start over QB Matt Flynn if Lewis can't play.
Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:57:02 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 1, but is listed as doubtful for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Jeff Tuel or Matt Flynn will start if Lewis doesn't play. Tuel received most of the first-team repetitions in practice this week in Lewis' absence. "It's a point of the soreness of the ribs," head coach Doug Marrone said. "Really just being able to turn and throw. That's the one thing that's holding him back. If he can get by that, then he will be able to play." Lewis worked on footwork ant timing Friday but did not throw any passes.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Tuel will start against KC. Steer clear of this situation if you can.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 11:42:51 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (rib, flu) did not practice again Thursday, Oct. 31, and he remains 50-50 to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Doug Marrone said the team hasn't decided if Lewis will be able to start. Both QBs Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn have taken first-team repetitions in practice this week, but Marrone "feels better" about going with Tuel if he has to.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Lewis suits up, staying away from the Buffalo QB situation this week if probably the safest route to take.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 23:10:01 -0700
Updating a previous item, Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone said QB Thaddeus Lewis' (ribs) chances of returning to practice this week are 50-50, which would seem to indicate his chances of playing are in serious jeopardy. Marrone said that right now, if Lewis can't play, QB Jeff Tuel would probably be the starter, but only because he's been here longer than QB Matt Flynn. Flynn, however, does have NFL experience, so Marrone could also opt to go that way and disregard Tuel's advantage in regards to knowing the offense.
Fantasy Tip: This QB situation is a mess. If you have backups, it is best to avoid the Bills altogether against Kansas City. If you are counting on Buffalo to help, be advised this decision could go down to the wire.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:24:20 -0700
In addition to Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (rib, flu) dealing with a rib contusion, he's also dealing with a "flu virus." Head coach Doug Marrone said Lewis is 50-50 to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QBs Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn split first-team repetitions in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. "Coach Marrone walked into the room and said 'It could be anybody. We don't know,'" Tuel said. "We know as much as you do." Marrone will evaluate Lewis' chances to start later this week, but it appears as though he's leaning toward going with Tuel if Lewis can't play.
Fantasy Tip: Whoever winds up starting against the Chiefs should be avoided for fantasy football lineups unless you're truly desperate in leagues where you start two quarterbacks.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 10:37:34 -0700
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel said he shared first-team reps with QB Matt Flynn during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:41:10 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel is taking the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, with QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) not participating. QB EJ Manuel (knee) was dressed for practice but is not expected to be an option in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QB Matt Flynn would back up Tuel if Lewis is unable to play.
Fantasy Tip: Tuel is not an option for fantasy football lineups, especially going up against the Chiefs, one of the best defenses in all of football.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:19:47 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel is working with the first-team offense during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. QB Matt Flynn was working with the second-team offense.

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 08:46:19 -0700
The Buffalo Bills have declared OG Antoine McClain, CB Brandon Burton, CB Brandon E. Smith, QB EJ Manuel, CB Justin Rogers, QB Matt Flynn, LB Ty Powell inactive for Week 7.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 11:31:45 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB Thaddeus Lewis (foot) will start Week 7 if he is healthy enough to play. Marrone said QB Matt Flynn will be the No. 2 quarterback if he learns the offensive system. The team is confident QB Jeff Tuel can handle the starting job or No. 2 job if needed.

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 13:30:11 -0700
Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin appears to have passed QB Matt Flynn on the depth chart as the backup quarterback.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 10:41:40 -0700
Oakland Raiders QB Matt Flynn fumbled twice, threw a crucial interception and was sacked seven times in the team's Week 4 loss to the Washington Redskins. It was the most sacks for a Raiders quarterback since 2006. "I don't think he saw the field very well," head coach Dennis Allen said. "Matt didn't play well, and we have to move on." Flynn led the offense to just nine first downs in the last 48 minutes of the game.
Fantasy Tip: It's clear that Flynn won't get another shot at starting at QB if Terrelle Pryor (concussion) is healthy and ready to go. We fully expect Pryor to play in Week 5, unless he suffers another setback.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 08:24:22 -0700
Updating a previous report, the Oakland Raiders told their players that QB Matt Flynn will start Week 4 instead of QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion).
Fantasy Tip: There have been conflicting reports about which quarterback will start for the Raiders will be Week 4. Owners will have to wait for the inactive list to see if Pryor will be playing in the game.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 06:03:19 -0700
Oakland Raiders QB Matt Flynn is expected to start, although there is some uncertainty over whether Flynn or QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) will get the start. Flynn has been preparing to play all week while Pryor worked his way back from the concussion.
Fantasy Tip: With this being a late game, it is tough to count on either player with the conflicting reports out there, especially if you have an option playing in an early game. If there are other options out there for you, it may be safer to go in that direction.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 21:05:02 -0700
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) will be given one more test from head coach Dennis Allen Saturday, Sept. 28, before a decision is made on the starting quarterback for Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. If Pryor cannot go, QB Matt Flynn would make his first start for the team.
Thu, 26 Sep 2013 15:37:07 -0700
Oakland Raiders CB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) likely will not play in the team's Week 4 game because of the concussion he suffered Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: Matt Flynn likely will get the start Week 4 but probably is not a starting option except for desperate owners in deeper leagues.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 15:12:07 -0700
Oakland Raiders QB Matt Flynn took all of the first-team repetitions in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25, with QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) sitting out. Pryor has been cleared for meetings and physical activity, but not practice.
Fantasy Tip: There's a decent chance that Pryor won't be cleared to play this weekend. If he does, however, he has a very nice matchup against a weak Washington Redskins defense. Keep tabs on Pryor's status throughout the week and up until game time Sunday.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 20:14:54 -0700
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (undisclosed) left the Week 3 game in the fourth quarter against the Denver Broncos Monday, Sept. 23, due to an undisclosed injury. He was taken to the locker room, and the television crew on ESPN guessed Pryor might be going for evaluation for a concussion. QB Matt Flynn finished up for Pryor.
