Seneca Wallace: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)As if things couldn't get any worse at quarterback for the Packers, following Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone, Green Bay must now rely on Scott Tolzien, who went undrafted after coming out of Wisconsin in 2011. The Packers have no other quarterback on their roster.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)While the Packers haven't formally named Wallace the starter, the 33-year-old has taken most of the first-team reps in practice this week and appears to be a lock to start against Philadelphia. Hopefully a full week of practice will result in a better performance from Wallace, who struggled in relief of Rodgers on Monday. That said, Wallace is not worthy of much fantasy consideration outside of deep two-quarterback leagues.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Perennial MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone, and while there is no set timetable for his return, it looks like Wallace will make at least one start in his absence. Wallace didn't play particularly well in relief of Rodgers Monday night, completing just 11-of-19 passes for 114 yards and one interception, and it seems likely the Packers will rely on a heavy dose of the ground game against Philadelphia, despite the Eagles' season-long struggles against the pass.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Wallace played sparingly and enjoyed little success in 2011. He accumulated 567 passing yards with two scores and two interceptions in six appearances including three starts. This season Wallace will compete with Colt McCoy for the backup role behind rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden. Despite McCoy's edge in potential, Wallace's status as a veteran leader and personal favorite of team president Mike Holmgren might be enough for him to win the job.
Wallace could be used in special wildcat-esque situations in conjunction with Josh Cribbs, but he will be relegated to a backup role this season behind Colt McCoy.
Wallace is an intriguing addition to the Browns roster as a backup who will likely see playing time in a modified wildcat package with receiver Josh Cribbs. If projected starter Jake Delhomme struggles early on, don't be surprised to see Wallace getting an opportunity as he has always been seen as a serviceable backup in Seattle.
Wallace played 10 games last season as Matt Hasselbeck struggled with injuries. Wallace does a good job of managing the game and not trying to do to much. He's not an NFL-caliber starter, though, and as such will never be given the opportunities to put up quality fantasy stats even if he again sees as much action as he did last year.
Wallace is an ultra-mobile quarterback that has proven to be a dependable option when Matt Hasselbeck is out. Unfortunately for Wallace, Seattle's receivers aren't near as strong as they have been in the past, which could limit Wallace's potential when he's called upon.
With Darrell Jackson gone, could this finally be the year the Seahawks move Wallace, the athletic playmaker, to WR? Doubtful. He'll continue to back up Matt Hasselbeck.
Wallace showed his impressive talent last year when allowed. Moving him from backup quarterback to receiver would prove better use of his athleticism. As a receiver he’d be the legit downfield threat the Seahawks need. Moving him requires signing another backup quarterback, which the Seahawks have yet to do, though.
Wallace moves into the No. 2 quarterback job this season as Trent Dilfer left to start for Cleveland. That isn't exactly a foolproof insurance policy for Matt Hasselbeck, though Wallace impressed in training camp last season and has looked good thus far in 2005. He won't play unless Hasselbeck goes down, and even then the Seahawks might scour for a veteran quarterback.
Wallace is the fourth-string QB and could get cut. However, he spent the offseason working out with quarterback coach Jim Zorn and if he has a strong training camp, he could give Brock Huard a run at the No. 3 QB spot. At 5-foot-11, Wallace, though, doesn't have much upside at QB. The Seahawks should convert him to a receiver or kick returner.
Wallace likey will be the third-string QB. His athleticism is impressive, so don't be surprised if the team doesn't use him at wide receiver some time.
