Green Bay Packers QB Scott Tolzien and QB Matt Flynn both have boosters among the team's assistant coaches. The coaching staff likes Tolzien's potential, but many like Flynn because he gives a "security blanket feel" to the team. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has said he would like to see both backups retained.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf), QB Matt Flynn and QB Scott Tolzien will all be active for the Divisional Round playoff game because of Rodgers' injury.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is expected to be the starting quarterback for the game, but the team wants to be prepared in case the injury forces Rodgers out of the game. Rodgers costs $8,900 on FantasyScore and is a risky option since he could be limited by the calf injury.

Green Bay Packers QBs Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn are in a heated battle in training camp to be the backup to QB Aaron Rodgers this year. "I think it's up in the air right now," quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt said. "It's in a competition. That's healthy for everybody." Tolzien outplayed Flynn in the team's first preseason game over the weekend. Flynn has the advantage due to his knowledge of the system, but Tolzien has had a year to learn it and has improved considerably.
Tolzien worked in the offseason to keep his elbow tighter to the left side of his body, according to Van Pelt. Tolzien has followed Rodgers in 11-on-11 drills in practice this week, but Van Pelt said it's unrelated to the quarterbacks' performances in the preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: Tolzien has more upside than Flynn, but the familiarity with the offense likely continues to give Flynn the slight edge. However, neither QB should make much noise in the regular season unless Rodgers suffers another serious injury and is forced to miss time.
