The Green Bay Packers are hoping to see tight end Jermichael Finley play without hesitation this season. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Green Bay Packers have no physical concerns about tight end Jermichael Finley, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Finley was slowed in training camp because of a concussion and a thigh injury but worked with both the first and second-team offenses in the team's final preseason game to get more reps. Green Bay is hoping Finley will play without hesitation in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: The report says Finley was concerned in 2011 about his torn meniscous from the 2010 season. He finished last year with 55 catches for 767 yards and should still be considered a No. 1 fantasy option at tight end. If he is able to play with confidence this season, Finley could be even better for fantasy owners in 2012.
