Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley found the end zone vs. the Niners on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley found some success Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers connected with his tight end seven times for 47 yards and a touchdown. In a game where the Niners corners were shutting down the Packers receivers, Finley thrived.

Fantasy Analysis: The Packers went to the air quite a bit on Sunday, as they usually do. Finley will continue to have fantasy value in this high-powered offense that is centered around the passing game. Finley gets plenty of opportunities to make catches but needs to be a little more consistent. As we saw in Week 1, Rodgers may look to him as a stable red-zone threat in 2012.
