Matt Flynn planning to start, Aaron Rodgers still has 'hurdles', fantasy owners have more headaches

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers still aren't sure who will start in Week 15, but early indications point to Matt Flynn again. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Green Bay Packers enter the practice week still unsure of their quarterback situation. At his Monday press conference, coach Mike McCarthy stated that they're planning have Matt Flynn as the starter against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 15. Aaron Rodgers is hoping to return, but McCarthy says that Aaron "has hurdles to get over."

After a disastrous Thanksgiving performance, Flynn was more respectable on Sunday, completing 24-of-32 passes for 258 yards, one touchdown and an interception in a win over the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers will work out on Tuesday and be re-evaluated on Wednesday before the Packers start practicing.

Fantasy impact: The Packers are still in the playoff hunt at 6-7-1, so they're leaving a window open for Rodgers to come back this week. It's still a fluid situation and we won't have much clarity until later in the week. Fantasy owners can keep holding on to Rodgers for now. Flynn is only a desperation play in two-quarterback leagues.
