Scott Tolzien replaces injured Seneca Wallace on Sunday; named starter in Week 11

Tolzien threw for 280 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Green Bay's quarterback woes continue to worsen. It's unlikely that many fantasy owners were starting Seneca Wallace on Sunday. If you were, you quickly found out that Wallace left with a groin injury and was replaced by Scott Tolzien. Tolzien was on Green Bay's practice squad, but was added to the active roster when Aaron Rodgers suffered a shoulder injury in Week 9. Considering his lack of experience, the third-year quarterback played well for most of the game. Tolzien threw for 280 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He added 19 rushing yards on one attempt. The Packers have already announced Tolzien as their starter for Week 11.

Fantasy impact: Outside of two-quarterback leagues, Tolzien probably shouldn't even be glanced at in fantasy football. He put up respectable numbers on Sunday, but the Philadelphia Eagles aren't the most challenging of defenses. He's a desperation play in Week 11 for owners in two-quarterback leagues. The Packers will face the New York Giants, who will likely provide a challenge for Tolzien in the pocket all afternoon.
