James Starks, Jermichael Finley, and James Jones are listed as out against the Bengals tonight. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jermichael Finley, James Starks, and James Jones are among the players listed as inactive against the Bengals tonight in their third preseason game. Finley would probably have been healthy enough to play but is absent because his wife is giving birth today. Starks is suffering from turf toe and some think he may not make the final roster. Making his first preseason appearance of the year is Charles Woodson, who will be playing safety for the first time.

Fantasy Implications: The good news is that Finley may be healthy enough to play, but his absence will give backup tight end Tom Crabtree more snaps and give us a better idea of what Green Bay has if Finley missed time this season. Cedric Benson will get a heavier workload with Starks and Brandon Saine out and it will be interesting to see how he does with his new team. Woodson moving to safety could have a major impact on the Packers defense, but whether that is good or bad remains to be seen.
