Thursday night was nothing special for Jermichael Finley. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jermichael Finley has been known for dominating the Bears in recent years, but Thursday night was not exactly a powerful performance. The Packers No. 1 tight end caught four passes for just 26 yards, dropping one ball and fumbling another shortly after a reception.

Fantasy Impact: If you looked at the stats on Finley versus the Bears in prior contests, you were likely eager to get this matchup underway. Finley failed to make much up an impact, though, and wound up doing very little for his fantasy owners. He is one of the most skilled tight ends in the league, but he doesn't always look like he's putting everything together on the field. He'll try to bounce back next week against Seattle.
