Packers QB Aaron Rodgers officially ruled out for Week 13

As expected, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 has been ruled out of the Thanksgiving game against the Lions, and Matt Flynn will start in his place. Head coach Mike McCarthy finally made the move official on Wednesday. Rodgers has been going through some light practice but he hasn't been cleared to play as he continues to recover from a fractured left collarbone.

Fantasy Analysis:

As I said late Tuesday night, Flynn is viable only in deep two-quarterback leagues, but Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson remains a must-start, and Jarrett Boykin @BoyKinHeCatch and James Jones are both worthwhile plays in three-receiver leagues. The Lions have allowed the second-most fantasy points to WRs this season.
