Jermichael Finley still nursing a shoulder injury: Fantasy Implications

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is still nursing a shoulder injury. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was limited in practice on Wednesday, still nursing a shoulder injury. Finley suffered the shoulder injury a few weeks back but has been playing through it. Despite being on the team's injury report, Finley should be expected to play this Sunday.

In Week 8, the Packers will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. Aaron Rodgers and the Pack have been hot recently, even though Finley hasn't played much of a factor.

Fantasy Analysis: Even though the injury hasn't cost Finley time on the field, it hasn't helped. He's been struggling mightily to become a relevant fantasy contributor. Going into the 2012 season, Finley was to be considering among the high-end fantasy tight ends. Right now, there's better fantasy options to be found on waivers or on your bench.

However, in Week 8, the Packers have a favorable match-up against the Jaguars. If you're in a bind, this might be the one week Finley produces, so start him if you must.
