The Green Bay Packers will not release TE Andrew Quarless at this time, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. This news comes despite the fact of the TE's recent arrest. (Source: Rob Demovsky)

Fantasy Impact: Quarless is expected to compete as the No. 1 TE in Green Bay with second-year player Richard Rodgers. Considering Rodgers' potential and the team's investment of a third-round pick, it looks like Quarless will wind up as Green Bay's No. 2 TE. As such, and considering he's in the final year of his contract, he remains at risk of being a roster casualty or even being cut before camp due to his run in with the law.

After firing a gun twice in Miami Saturday, Andrew Quarless was arrested. (Source: Miami New Times)

Fantasy Impact: Quarless fired his gun into the ground after arguing with a group of women. He then fled the scene and hid the gun in a potted plant. He was later arrested and charged with discharging a firearm in public, which can put someone in the slammer for up to a year in Florida since it's categorized as a first-degree misdemeanor. It's very possible that Quarless has played his last down in the NFL after this incident.

The Packers used one of their sixth round compensatory picks to pick TE Kennard Backman out of UAB.

Fantasy Impact: Lack of fantasy value has surrounded the TE position for the Packers. They have two secured TE on the roster but neither have been involved in one of best offenses in the NFL. Hopefully Backman can stick with the roster and give them at the minimum competition.

Andrew Quarless caught one pass on 4 targets for seven yards in Sunday's upset loss to the Bills. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Andrew Quarless is nothing special. The best case scenario for Green Bay would've been Quarless picking up where Jermichael Finley left off. Before Finley got hurt, he was a pretty good TE. Quarless will never be Jermichael Finley. He should also never be owned on any fantasy team, especially in the final game of the Playoffs. Nothing more to discuss here.

On 4 targets , Andrew Quarless caught 3 balls for 52 yards.

Fantasy Impact: For those of you looking for help at tight end in your fantasy playoffs, look elsewhere. Green Bay's TEs have been wildly inconsistent this year and cannot be trusted. This was technically Quarless's best receiving game all season, although he didn't find the end zone, and he ended with just 52 yards. The TE position has just been an afterthought all season in Titletown, none are worth owning.

Andrew Quarless was practically invisible on Sunday, catching just 2 passes on 2 targets for 17 yards. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Let's face it. Whether you're gearing up for a playoff run, or your playoffs start next week, or you're not even in the hunt, you are not starting Andrew Quarless. The guy is basically a ghost out there. I see no fantasy value whatsoever.

Andrew Quarless is finally beginning to involve himself more in the Packers' high octane Offense. Quarless caught 2 balls on 3 targets for 50 yards in Sunday's victory over the Minnesota Vikings. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: While two catches for 50 yards is nothing to get too excited about, at the very least it should catch your eye. Had Quarless recorded eight more yards on Sunday, he would have tied the total yardage of Randall Cobb for the day. Whether that is to say that Cobb had a bad game or Quarless had an abnormally productive game is up to debate. Nevertheless, the numbers don't lie. Richard Rodgers was the TE who reached the endzone, but that was all he did. Rodgers literally had one catch for one yard which happened to be a TD. Quarless and the Packers host the Patriots next weekend in what looks to be, in my opinion, a preview of this year's Super Bowl. Quarless has only faced New England once in his career, in 2010. Needless to say, Quarless really did not do much in that game, and shouldn't be expected to put up big numbers this time around either.

Andrew Quarless hauled in two passes on 2 targets for 35 yards in Sunday's blowout victory over the Eagles. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: There is no reason to own Quarless in any fantasy league. Quarless takes his talents to Minnesota next week, where he was held to just 2 catches for 19 yards in Week 5. Per Pro Football Reference, through 7 career matchups against the Vikings, Quarless is averaging 1.6 receptions and 16 receiving yards per game. No thanks, I'll pass.

Andrew Quarless joined in on the fun, scoring a touchdown in the blowout victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Quarless received 5 targets and caught a touchdown pass, yet still remains irrelevant in all fantasy formats. Green Bay hosts Philadelphia next week; Quarless has faced the Eagles only once and was practically invisible in that matchup. Quarless has very limited fantasy potential, avoid in all formats.

The Packers have started to move TE Andrew Quarless outside more and more as the year has gone on. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "Against Seattle, Quarless was used as a receiver 11 times, against the New York Jets nine, against Detroit seven, against Chicago nine and against Minnesota seven. Then came the Miami game. Quarless was used outside or in the slot 27 times..." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: At the start of the year, including the Packers first game against the Chicago Bears, it was rookie TE Richard Rodgers that was seeing most of these opportunities. Now, it appears those chances are trending toward the veteran Quarless. Packers tight end coach Jerry Fontenot said it depends who is in the game at the time a play is called. It appears the Packers are getting more comfortable with the performance of their offensive line, allowing big bodies like Quarless to move outside instead of blocking. The Packers torched the Bears through the air in their Week 4 tilt, and I like the combination of Quarless and Rodgers to help them do it again at home in Week 10.

Andrew Quarless recorded two receptions on three targets for 19 yards. Quarless was also responsible for an Aaron Rodger's INT in the red zone on a third-and-goal possession from the 5 yard-line. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Quarless continues to be irrelevant in the Packers offense, this time actually hurting the team. Rodgers targeted Quarless in the endzone on a third-and-goal play from the 5 yard-line, Quarless couldn't bring in the easy pass and Rodgers was picked off by David Hawthorne. Needless to say, Quarless should not be owned in any format.

Andrew Quarless continues to struggle to be relevant in the Packers offense. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: As if you were even considering starting Quarless, the Saints are allowing the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. No intrigue here, not a lot of potential, not worthy of ownership. Quarless is not a bad football player, he's simply a bad fantasy player.

Green Bay's TE coach, Jerry Fontenot, recently stated: "So whoever has the hot hand, that’s probably who’s going to get the most reps." The Packers have utilized a lot of two-tight end sets this year to help with blocking, but perhaps are starting to see the value these big bodied receivers can bring to the field. (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: In Week 4 the Packers used 2-TE sets to exploit the middle of the Bears secondary, the beneficiary during that game was Richard Rodgers who caught 2 passes on 2 targets for 52 yards. Although Quarless will get opportunities to be on the field, it's anyone's guess which TE will get targeted by Aaron Rodgers. Fantasy owners can continue to monitor the situation and see if one takes a leap forward or an injury occurs, but this looks like it will be a guessing game for most of the year with neither Quarless or Rodgers being fantasy relevant.

Tight end Andrew Quarless finished the game with two targets and one reception for eight yards. He was missed by QB Aaron Rodgers on his lone red zone target.

Fantasy Impact: The Packers TE situation has gained no clarity through two weeks. Going up against two very talented defenses with a beat up O-Line, GB has used their TE group heavily in pass protection and run blocking. Week to week, no Packers TE is a safe fantasy option.

Andrew Quarless caught 3 of 4 targets for 26 yards in Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the Seahawks in place of the injured Richard Rodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Richard Rodgers missed a few series with an apparent stinger, and Quarless was the beneficiary as expected. He even had a 31 yard catch called back due to a holding penalty. Rodgers did reenter the game however so it assumed Quarless' position on the depth chart will remain unchanged. Quarless is still not a viable TE2 despite the performance due to the fact that Bostick (leg) could be back for week 2.

Andrew Quarless has fallen from grace in Green Bay, and was listed behind rookie Richard Rodgers and injured Brandon Bostick (leg) on the depth chart. He is projected to have 1-2 fantasy points against the vaunted Seattle defense Thursday Night. (Source: FantasyPros)

Fantasy Impact: At this time, Quarless should not be owned in any leagues. Although it is possible he may have an bigger impact than Richard Rodgers Thursday night, Bostick should be back next week and force Quarless to become a situational TE. It should go without saying that he should not be started in week 1. The TE position is not set in stone, however, in GB, so check back after Thursday night's game to see how the snaps were split between Rodgers and Quarless. That should shed some more light on his value.

The fact that the veteran Quarless was still playing in the second half of the preseason finale could mean that he has fallen out of favor with the Packers. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This coupled with the fact that he had more snaps than rookie Richard Rodgers in the preseason finale should be cause for concern. The 4th preseason game usually sees the bubble players getting the most work. This is not to say Quarless is on the bubble, but as for the starting gig? Maybe so. Assuming your draft comes before the season opener (yes, some people draft after week 1), Quarless should be overlooked in favor of Rodgers. With Brandon Bostick still out, Rodgers seems to be in line to get the most touches at TE, not Quarless. The TE situation in GB may remain in flux weeks into the season however, considering the competition at the position.
