Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is staying quiet about the team's three-way quarterback competition. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll still isn't tipping his hand about his timetable for naming a starting quarterback. Matt Flynn, Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson are all fighting for the spot, although Flynn will make his second straight start this weekend against the Denver Broncos. Carroll says Jackson is being considered, even though he didn't play against against Tennessee and isn't expected to take the field against Denver. Carroll says the team knows what Jackson is capable of and needs to see more of Flynn and Wilson.

Analysis: It's hard to take Carroll too seriously, especially when it comes to Jackson. There have been reports this week that the team wants to trade him and it's hard to believe that a quarterback who doesn't play is going to win the starting job. There is no reason to draft a Seattle quarterback at this point, but it sounds like Flynn should be treated as the starter for now.
