Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley returned to practice for the Packers on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley returned to practice Sunday for the Green Bay Packers, Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Jennings has missed practice since the beginning of August after suffering a concussion in practice. Finley strained his quadriceps earlier in the week.
Analysis: This is great news for fantasy owners and Packers fans. Jennings has the potential to be one of the top 5 wide receivers in fantasy football thanks to his role as a deep threat within a prolific offense manned by Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. Finley also has a ton of upside, though he has a few questions to answer after a relatively disappointing 2011 campaign. The tight end is starting to gain a reputation for being injury prone, and he had an awful case of dropsies last season. He receives tons of targets however, making him one of the first tight ends off the board in most fantasy drafts.
