Jermichael Finley probable for Week 7: Fantasy impact

Mary Langenfeld-US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is listed as probable after being limited in practice all week with a shoulder injury. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was limited every day of practice this week with a shoulder injury, but is listed as probable for Green Bay's Week 7 contest against the St. Louis Rams. Finley suffered a slight dislocation of the A/C joint in his right shoulder in the Packers 30-27 Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but was able to play last week against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact: Given that Finley was listed as questionable last week and still played, you can expect him in the game on Sunday. But Finley only caught two passes for 12 yards against the Texans in Week 6 in what was otherwise a breakout day for most of the Packers passing game.

Finley has not caught a TD since Week 1 and the Rams stout pass defense won't make things any easier for him. Feel free to start Finley, but if you have another option at tight end you might want to consider it this week.
