Packers | Backup QB battle up in the air

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 15:28:14 -0700

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.
