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.

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn took nearly all the snaps in practice Thursday, Dec. 19, while backup QB Scott Tolzien took a handful of snaps. QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) did not take any snaps in the portion of practice open to the media.
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Flynn will once again get the start in the team's Week 16 game based on how practice is playing out for the Packers this week.

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz is preparing his game to face either Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers or QB Matt Flynn, or even QB Scott Tolzien although most media reports have Flynn definitely starting the game on Thursday, Nov. 28. "We have game plans ready for all those different things," Schwartz said. "Whatever quarterback they throw out there, we'll be ready. We've looked at all three of them that have potential to be able to play in this game."

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn took the "starter reps" in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26, but head coach Mike McCarthy has yet to name Flynn the starter in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions. QB Scott Tolzien was pulled in Week 12 in the third quarter against the Minnesota Vikings. "I'm very comfortable," said Flynn, who was the Packers' backup from 2008-2011. "I feel good with the playbook. I feel good with the game plan. I feel ready to go."
Fantasy Tip: Flynn is most comfortable in this offense. The matchup against Detroit isn't a bad one if you need another QB in leagues that start two quarterbacks.
