While I was philosophizing recently on the perceived fantasy football value of a number of quarterbacks, it dawned on me that similar to Robert Griffin III having his fantasy value increased due to the performance last season of Cam Newton, Flynnís fantasy value is taking a hit due to the poor performance of Kevin Kolb. Is that fair? What does it mean? And what does it say about us fantasy football enthusiasts in civilization? These waters donít run very deep my friends, and I got scared so I grabbed some beers and read up on Flynn. Whatís not to like about his performance in Green Bay last year (480 yards and six touchdowns in his lone start)? It also says a lot when your former team considers placing the franchise tag on you since they felt they could reap a bountiful of picks and players in a trade. The critics have called him a game manager who lacks a big arm and may not be athletic enough to be a solid starter. A 480-yard performance and you are a game manager? As Key would say, Címon man! While Flynn isnít going to be mentioned alongside the most athletic quarterbacks, he has enough talent to succeed. The biggest impediments to his fantasy success in 2012 are the Seahawks group of receivers and the teamís preference to pound the ball in the running game. Their top wide receiver is the injury-prone Sidney Rice and although they have several other talented receivers, none is a proven second starter. The situation is a little rosier at tight end but Flynn has nowhere near the talent that existed in Green Bay. Flynn is worth adding as low-end QB2 provided he holds off Tarvaris Jackson and Russell Wilson to open the season under center.

Injury Drew Brees getting MRI on foot     -- Tue Dec 22 12:05 pm --

Matt Flynn waiting in the wings to face Jaguars in Week 16
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he will undergo an MRI on his foot after injuring it in the first half of the Saints 35-27 loss to the Lions on Monday night. Brees limped to the sidelines after taking a hit and had his foot inspected and taped up by trainers. However, he never missed a snap and returned to the game shortly. (

FF Today's Take: We'll have to wait and see how the MRI shakes out. There's nothing the Saints have left to play for, so we suspect they'll sit him if anything is seriously wrong. Matt Flynn could be a decent plug-n-play QB if Brees misses Week 16.
