Seneca Wallace out for game, Packers team loses fantasy value

Seneca Wallace is out for the game with a groin injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Seneca Wallace suffered a groin injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game and will not return. He was replaced by Scott Tolzien and running back John Kuhn will serve as the emergency quarterback.

Tolzien was called up from the practice squad and is getting his first NFL action. He was the starter at Wisconsin for three years from 2008-10 and had a 16:6 TD:INT ratio in his last year there. Tolzien isn't very mobile and he never really got a chance to show what he could do with the Badgers' run-first approach.

Fantasy impact: The Packers are likely going to follow the Badgers' plan with Tolzien. Running back Eddie Lacy will be busy and should see plenty of carries. James Starks could also be a factor to give Lacy a breather.

On the flip side, it's not easy to be too attached to any of the Packers' pass catchers. Jordy Nelson would take an even bigger hit with a QB that doesn't have any reps with him and he might have an off day today. James Jones and Jarrett Boykin are almost unplayable next week. We'll have an update on Wallace as soon as it's available and fantasy owners would have to be in a very deep league to grab Tolzien.
