Matt Flynn | QB | Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn finished 10-of-20 for 139 yards, 0 TDs and an interception Thursday, Nov. 28 in a 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Flynn's start for the Packers couldn't have been any more different than his last one -- a memorable 480-yard, 6-TD Week 17 explosion in Week 17 of the 2011 season. Flynn, Green Bay's 4th starting QB this season was unable to guide the Packers into the end zone, but put most of the blame on the Lions' D which recorded 7 sacks and 9 QB hits. With 10 days until the Packs' next game, Aaron Rodgers might be ready to go in Week 14.

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.' Meanwhile, QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) was working on center to quarterback exchanges, executing footwork and drop-back drills while throwing passes to receivers during position drills in practice Tuesday. It's his first practice session since injuring his collarbone Nov. 4. However, Rodgers isn't expected to play in Week 13.
Huddle Up: There's still a glimmer of Week 13 hope for Rodgers' fantasy owners, but it's fading fast to be sure. In fact, Packers' coach Mike McCarthy said the chances of Rodgers playing Thursday are closer to none than slim at this point, so look for the Pack to feature their fourth starting QB of the season in Flynn, who was 21-of-36 for 218 yards, a TD and an interception in his Week 12 relief appearance.

Green Bay Packers QB Scott Tolzien was benched in favor of QB Matt Flynn during the third quarter of Week 12's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Tolzien was 7-for-17 with 98 passing yards and a rushing touchdown before being pulled.
Huddle Up: Flynn played well when he came into the game, and that was a big boost to some of the other offensive players. Maybe he just didn't like being away from Green Bay.

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn (elbow) said that he was dealing with an elbow issue during training camp but is fully healthy now.
Huddle Up: Oh, so that's it *wink wink*. Elbow issues or not, Flynn might just be Green Bay's best bet until Rodgers comes back.

The Green Bay Packers worked out free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Bills) Monday, Nov. 11, and will sign him.
Huddle Up: The Packers originally appeared set to go with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien at QB, but with Wallace's first-quarter groin injury, they have welcomed back Flynn, who has been released by the Seahawks, Raiders and Bills since last playing for Green Bay.

Free-agent QB Matt Flynn is scheduled to work out for the Green Bay Packers Monday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Flynn seemed a logical fit for the Packers when Aaron Rodgers went down, but the team preferred to soldier on with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien. With Wallace now injured as well, it makes sense to bring in a guy intimately familiar with the offense who could step in in a pinch without much prep time. And that would be Flynn.

The Green Bay Packers are unlikely to attempt to sign free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Bills) because they have concerns about his arm.
Huddle Up: With his release from the Bills followed by this news, it appears Flynn may finally have run out of NFL options for the time being.

The Oakland Raiders have released QB Matt Flynn.
Huddle Up: Matt Flynn, we hardly knew ye. This seems to indicate the Raiders are on the verge of signing Pat White. All of which affects your fantasy team very little.

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.
Huddle Up: Pryor will still start as long as he passes all the concussion tests. Pryor gets to feast on the struggling Redskins' defense Sunday, so he would be a nice bye-week replacement for Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton if you need him.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he is not ready to say whether QB Terrelle Pryor or QB Matt Flynn will start Week 1 and may not name a starter until Sunday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: This isn't going to be a mess for fantasy owners, but it's a wise move on Allen's part as the styles of the two QBs vary significantly, creating a bit of a dilemma in the Colts' Week 1 preparation.

After the latest round of cuts took place Saturday, Aug. 31, the Oakland Raiders have four quarterbacks on the roster in QB's Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor, Tyler Wilson and Matt McGloin. The latter two are rookies. The team was also not ready to decide whether P Chris Kluwe or Marquette King would handle duties. Moves can still be made prior to the Sept. 8 opener.
Huddle Up: Know the saying that goes when you have 2 quarterbacks, you really have none? What does that say about the Silver & Black and 4 QBs? Beyond RB Darren McFadden, roster a Raiders' offensive player only in extreme circumstances.

In the opinion of Bay Area News Group's Jerry McDonald, Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor could win the starting job if he avoids committing turnovers and displays leadership skills in the team's fourth preseason contest. With Matt Flynn (arm) has a sore right throwing arm, Pryor will remain on the field for an extended period.
Huddle Up: Unless Pryor implodes, he should win the job. Pryor's running ability gives him more upside than Flynn but he's still no more than a QB2 at this point given Oakland's overall talent level on offense.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor will start the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 29, against the Seattle Seahawks, rather than QB Matt Flynn.
Huddle Up: Pryor looked pretty good in Oakland's third preseason game, and given the state of the club--and Flynn's struggles--he deserves a shot to see if he can help the Raiders salvage the season.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor could still be an option to start Week 1 after he went 7-for-10 for 93 yards and a touchdown in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 23. He also rushed for 37 yards and one touchdown. QB Matt Flynn went 3-for-6 for 119 yards and two interceptions in the game.
Huddle Up: After the game Head Coach Dennis Allen said he would have to look at the quarterback position further. If the Raiders go with Pryor it would be the second year in a row Flynn came into a training camp projected to be the starter and lost the job. The bottom line is he's a backup quarterback and teams should stop trading draft picks to get him.

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Flynn looked sharp Friday, July 26, particularly in 7-on-7 drills, and he misfired on just one pass during three sessions.
Huddle Up: The Raiders brought Flynn in to solidify an inexperienced quarterbacking corps in the wake of Carson Palmer's departure, and in the early going he looks to be doing just that. However, he still has a ways to go before he'll show up on the fantasy radar.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Matt Flynn is the starting quarterback right now. "Matt is our starting quarterback as we go forward right now," Allen said. "Until the competition dictates otherwise, that's the way we're going."

The Oakland Raiders restructured QB Matt Flynn's contract and converted much of his $3.25 million base salary into a signing bonus. The move saved the team about $1 million against the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Flynn's move cleared the way for DB Charles Woodson to be signed as the cash-strapped Raiders scrap for every cent.

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has named QB Matt Flynn the team's starting quarterback as offseason workouts are set to begin; however, he will continue to compete for the starting job.
Huddle Up: Terrelle Pryor is also expected to get a long look in Oakland, but they key will be which back can hand the ball ever-so-gently to Darren McFadden so as not to injure him. It's a competition that will barely register on the fantasy radar, though Oakland receivers would take a significant hit if Pryor wrests the starting gig from Flynn.

There is a good chance the Oakland Raiders will take a quarterback with one of their seven selections in the NFL Draft, with only QBs Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor currently on the roster. However, they are not expected to use the No. 3 overall selection on a quarterback.
Huddle Up: Nothing new here as the Silver & Black continues its perennial search for a QB. Trivia time: Since the Raiders' Super Bowl season of 2002, 15 QBs have made starts for the franchise, but only one -- Jason Campbell (2010-11) -- has posted a winning record.

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie indicated QB Matt Flynn will have to compete with QB Terrelle Pryor for the starting quarterback job next season.
Huddle Up: This one will pretty much be decided by what offense the Raiders decide to run. Flynn is more suited for a West Coast and/or classic pro style offense; Pryor has the athleticism to be more of a threat as a read-option quarterback. If Flynn wins the job, Oakland's wide receivers may actually have some fantasy value; otherwise, not so much.

The Oakland Raiders acquired QB Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks for a 2014 draft pick and a conditional pick in 2015.
Huddle Up: Seattle gets no immediate return on the minimal investment they sunk into Flynn last offseason; meanwhile, the Raiders get to replace Carson Palmer with someone other than Terrelle Pryor. Consider this a modest win for the fantasy value of Oakland wideouts.

The Oakland Raiders appear close to trading for Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Flynn.
Huddle Up: There were too many QB-needy teams for the Seahawks to squat on Flynn for too long, and with Carson Palmer refusing to rework his deal in Oakland the Raiders definitely fall into that category. Flynn's arrival in Oakland would provide a fantasy boost for Raider receivers.
Posted: 3/26/2013 11:34pm et
Several NFL sources have identified the Jacksonville Jaguars as the most likely destination for Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Flynn, and sources said a trade could materialize before the NFL Draft in April. The Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders are also believed to be interested in a deal.
Huddle Up: There was some speculation that Seattle would end up releasing Flynn, but there are simply too many QB-needy teams for someone not to put together a solid trade offer. The Raiders -- if Carson Palmer gets released -- and the Bills likely are in more desperate need of a QB than the Jags, but it sounds like Jacksonville may the front-runner to land Flynn, who has attempted 141 career passes in 5 NFL seasons.

The Seattle Seahawks could consider releasing QB Matt Flynn this offseason if they select a backup to QB Russell Wilson during the 2013 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Flynn would have a good chance to start for several teams, but the QB's contract appears to be scaring off potential trade partners.
Posted: 3/11/2013 5:53pm et
The Seattle Seahawks would like to trade QB Matt Flynn this offseason.
Huddle Up: Seattle signed Flynn to a relatively inexpensive deal last offseason, then watched Russell Wilson grab the starting job and refuse to let go. There are enough QB-needy teams that Seattle should get a mid- to late-round pick in exchange for Flynn's services.
Posted: 2/28/2013 11:23pm et
The Seattle Seahawks are open to trading QB Matt Flynn this offseason because they know he wants to be a starting quarterback but would like to keep him as QB Russell Wilson's backup.
Huddle Up: With Alex Smith headed to K.C., Flynn inherits the mantle of best veteran QB on the market, and the Hawks likely are counting on some interested teams to start upping their antes.
Posted: 2/24/2013 1:04pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he is in favor of keeping QB Matt Flynn instead of looking to trade him this offseason. 'To have a caliber of second quarterback like Matt, you can't get better than that,' Carroll said. 'That's a great deal for us. And so we're very solidly in favor of keeping that together if we could.'
Huddle Up: Ideally, keeping Flynn around as insurance in back of starter Russell Wilson would work, but the Seahawks would have to be set salary-cap wise and not have many needs at other positions to afford keeping a high-priced No. 2 QB on board.

Updating a previous item, the Seattle Seahawks have told QB Matt Flynn they are willing to trade him; however, finding a trade partner will be problematic because several teams expect Flynn will be cut.
Huddle Up: Maybe the fact that Seattle has Russell Wilson keeps Flynn's trade value down, but he's still a quarterback with upside and a reasonable contract in a league where multiple teams need help at the position. What will really hurt Flynn's trade value as far as the Seahawks are concerned is the likelihood that they won't trade him within the division, removing the QB-needy Cardinals from the bidding.

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to be willing to trade QB Matt Flynn, but it'll be hard for them to find a trade partner when many other teams expect Seattle to outright cut him.
Huddle Up: It's hard to imagine Flynn hitting the waiver wire with quality QBs in such short supply. And while it's true that Flynn remains largely unproven, his potential likely will be too good to pass up.
Posted: 1/20/2013 12:20pm et
The New York Jets could show interest in Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Flynn if the Seahawks are willing to trade him this offseason. Flynn has experience in the West Coast offense, which is what the team is expected to run next season.
Huddle Up: The Jets definitely need some legitimate competition for Mark Sanchez, who struggled mightily -- along with the rest of the offense, to be fair -- this past season, and Flynn would appear to fill that bill after finding himself the odd-man out in Seattle.
Posted: 1/15/2013 10:31pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said it would be nice to have another quarterback on the roster that has the similar skillset to that of QB Russell Wilson. 'We've talked a lot about that,' Carroll said. 'It would be nice to have another guy that might be able to be a factor that way. There's some really good kids out there. We'll see.' It remains to be seen if Seattle is willing to trade QB Matt Flynn.
Huddle Up: All signs point to Flynn hitting the trading block this offseason, and it'll be interesting to see if a team is willing to take on a mega-bucks contract for a mostly unproven player.
Posted: 1/6/2013 10:37pm et
The Seattle Seahawks likely will be willing to listen to trade offers for QB Matt Flynn this offseason.
Huddle Up: Flynn's big-$$$ contact will be an obstacle, but it's a must-move for the Seahawks given Russell Wilson's rise to rookie stardom.

Seattle Seahawks backup QB Matt Flynn saw his first regular season action since joining the Seahawks. He finished 5 of 9 for 68 yards in relief.
Huddle Up: As if the 58-0 drubbing of the Cardinals wasn't enough, Seattle showed they have two competent quarterbacks--two more than currently on the Arizona roster. Flynn was given a chance to shake off the rust and perhaps remind other teams around the league he's available for a trade.
