The Green Bay Packers can't catch a break. 

It's not enough that they've already lost tight end Jermichael Finley for the season and both Randall Cobb and Aaron Rodgers for a significant chunk of time. Now, the team will have to go without backup quarterback Seneca Wallace after he left the team's Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the first quarter with a groin injury.

From Reuben Frank of CSN Philly:

Third-year Wisconsin product Scott Tolzien will be the starter in Week 11, according to head coach Mike McCarthy, via Kevin Seifert of ESPN:

Tolzien ended up going 24-of-39 against the Eagles, racking up 280 yards while throwing one touchdown and two interceptions.

It's hard to imagine Tolzien producing consistently for the Packers, but he will get the lion's share of reps this week in practice with a week to prepare. However, Tolzien is a third-string quarterback for a reason. 

Add it all up, and the rest of the Packers' fantasy stars are likely to suffer with Tolzien under center. It would be surprising if Tolzien managed to be a viable fantasy contributor, limiting the fantasy value of the rest of the team as well.

Tolzien isn't worth any consideration in fantasy.
