Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley appears to have the support of his offensive coordinator, despite several drops and a fumble. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tight end Jermichael Finley is still an integral part of the offense for the Green Bay Packers, according to offensive coordinator Tom Clements. He said recently (via The Green Press Gazette) that the team remains confident in Finley despite some dropped passes and a fumble through the first two games of the season. The Packers play the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners have been hoping for more from Finley. He has 11 catches through the first two weeks but the longest play has gone for 16 yards. He also has just one touchdown catch. It's encouraging to hear that the team is still confident throwing to him but fantasy owners will want to see how many catches he gets going forward. Because of the offense he plays in, Finley is still a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.
