Jermichael Finley continues to disappoint fantasy owners in Week 8

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finely a non-factor in Week 8. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was a non-factor once again in Week 8. Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Packers tight end couldn't seem to get anything going. Even though the Packers were short on receivers, Finley finished with only 2 catches for 28 yards.

Finley has not been an important role player in this offense. Given the landscape of the league, one would think the Packers would like to see a little more production out of their tight end. However, Finley has not been able to bring it for the Packers.

Fantasy Analysis: While Finley had a relatively decent draft stock going into this season, he seems downright expendable at this point. If you are a fantasy owner that is more concerned with production rather than just a name, you don't want any part of Finley.

He has a very low percentage of producing on a week-to-week basis. Finley owners should feel encouraged to shop him around, and if there's no market, don't hesitate to replace him with a more consistent waiver pickup. It's late in the fantasy season and there's no time to waste.
