Jermichael Finley limited in practice: Fantasy Implications

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was limited in practice. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Finley was used carefully in Week 6 and it did not hamper is progress. Finley continues to get healthy and should be expected to start versus the St. Louis Rams this weekend.

Finley has not played a critical role in this high-flying Packers offense, but remains a big target for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Analysis: Finley has failed to be a significant fantasy contributor once again. His drops have become a notorious signature of his, and burden on fantasy owners. He should be producing at a much higher level. If you are a fantasy owner that does not care about having "names" in your lineup, then you can opt out of starting Finley for guys like Scott Chandler and Kyle Rudolph.

However, with six teams on a bye in Week 7, Finley might be your best available option. Hopefully the absence of Greg Jennings will finally payoff for Finley. At the moment, it's only benefitted Jordy Nelson and James Jones.
