Scott Tolzien is your newest Packers starting QB

Seneca Wallace's first start since December 2011 didn't even last a full quarter. Wallace injured his groin on the first series of Sunday's game against the Eagles and was replaced by Scott Tolzien for the rest of the afternoon. Tolzien went on to complete 24 of 39 passes for 280 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. After the game, head coach Mike McCarthy said Tolzien would start in Week 11 against the Giants.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Packers have gone from Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 to Wallace to Tolzien in the span of six days. They might as well bring back that Favre guy at this point.
I'm sorry. That was uncalled for.
Tolzien, a Wisconsin product who went undrafted in 2011, was on the Packers' active roster only after being activated from the practice squad earlier in the week. If he had been injured Sunday, the Packers would have turned to fullback John Kuhn to take over under center.
Tolzien certainly didn't embarrass himself in the first regular-season appearance of his career. Jarrett Boykin led all Packers receivers with 112 yards on 13 targets, all coming from Tolzien. He completed five of nine targets to Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson for 48 yards. I think Nelson remains an every-week play going forward, especially against the Giants. Boykin is back on the WR3 roster after his Week 9 dud. But really, this offense should be all about Eddie Lacy for as long as Rodgers is out.
