Matt Flynn is inactive for Friday's preseason game between the Seahawks and Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Flynn is on the sideline wearing sweats for Friday's preseason game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Kansas City Chiefs, Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. The reason why Flynn is inactive is still unknown, though it likely has something to do with being held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday with arm soreness. Russell Wilson was announced as the Seahawks' starter on Tuesday, prior to Flynn's ailment.

Analysis: The first question that just popped into your head is relevant, but the coaches maintain that Wilson earned the start on his own merits, not because Flynn is banged up. There is a legitimate quarterback competition in Seattle, and how Wilson performs against the first first-team defense he has faced in preseason could tip the scales in favor of either quarterback for the starting role in the season opener. Both have performed well, though Wilson has been a bit sharper playing in the last two preseason games after Flynn has finished.
