Quick fantasy outlook: You couldn't blame Matt Flynn if this all feels a little bit like deja vu. For the second year in a row Flynn has changed teams for a chance at a starting role only to have the team draft a quarterback of the future after he arrived. What's more, the Raiders drafted a Wilson, much like Seattle did in 2012 when they drafted Russell Wilson, the quarterback that beat Matt Flynn out for a starting role. Thankfully for Flynn that's likely where the comparisons end. Barring a major surprise, Flynn should be the starter in Oakland this year, what he does with that opportunity will determine for how long. If he wants to keep the job, he needs to show a little bit more of what he showed in his final start in Green Bay and a little less of what he showed in the preseason last year in Seattle. Flynn is a career back up that turns 28 in June and he's no longer someone that can rely on words like potential and up-side. Flynn's potential has only been realized on an NFL field once, a week 16 game against a porous Lions secondary. In that game he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns. One huge advantage Flynn will have if he's been paying attention the past five years is his knowledge of the West Coast Offense. The Raiders will run a variation of the scheme that now has so many and Flynn grew up as an NFL quarterback in the system and that should only work to his benefit. He has a stable of talented, but inexperienced receivers and two of the best pass catching backs in the league.
