Matt Flynn miserable in blowout loss, has no place on fantasy teams

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers really, really miss Aaron Rodgers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn got the start on Thanksgiving with Aaron Rodgers still out, but he had an atrocious performance against the Detroit Lions. Flynn completed just 10-of-20 passes for 139 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. In the process he took seven sacks, lost two fumbles and gave up a safety.

Green Bay's offensive line did no favors for Flynn, but he was a deer in headlights, routinely crumbling against simple four-man rushes. It will go down as one of the worst quarterback performances of the season, as the Packers fell to 5-6-1. His decent game in last week's tie with the Vikings is now a distant memory.

Fantasy impact: The only thing Flynn accomplished was reminding people why he's on his fourth team in less than a year. He just doesn't look like an NFL quarterback and could be unemployed again once Rodgers comes back. If for some reason you picked up Flynn in fantasy this week, it's time to drop him like a bad habit.
