2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Jun-26-2013 by Shawn Larabee
Flynn was brought in to Seattle last season as the presumptive starter, but was upstaged by Russell Wilson. Wilson's otherworldly play made Flynn (and his large contract) expendable. The Raiders were quick to pounce and now have Flynn slotted in as their starter, though he'll once again face competition. We don't yet have a clear picture of Flynn's NFL capability, and the fact he will be playing in Oakland's weak offense makes him far from a sure pick in fantasy drafts.
The Packers' win last Sunday over the Falcons kept their playoff hopes alive and, as a result, kept the hopes of fantasy owners that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play before the end of the regular season equally alive. But wait -- a source is telling ESPN's Ed Werder not-so-good things.
"Packers pessimistic about Aaron Rodgers being cleared for Dallas," Werder tweeted Wednesday. "Scheduled for practice today but source says playing inside 8 weeks risky."
Eight weeks? Uh-oh. Rodgers just passed the five-week mark since fracturing his left collarbone on Monday. Once again, Rodgers went through some practice on Wednesday, but it's looking like he'll miss yet another game, this one against a pitiful Cowboys defense. Matt Flynn would get another start and, even in such an awesome matchup, continue to be a drain on the fantasy values of Jordy Nelson and friends. Nelson is the only Packers receiver worth starting with some measure of confidence this week, unfortunately.
