Jermichael Finley salvages his fantasy point total with a late, long catch

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers got a key grab from Jermichael Finley in the waning moments of Sunday's game to ice a 19-17 victory over the Ravens. We break down the fantasy implications.

Packers tight end Jermichael Finley padded his stat totals late in the game with the aid of a big completion.

Finley's highlight during the Packers' 19-17 victory over the Ravens was a game-clinching 52-yard catch and run late in the fourth quarter. Up until that point, Finley was involved but could not capitalize on seven targets from Aaron Rodgers. Finley finished with three catches for 75 yards in a game that had James Jones and Randall Cobb leave early with injuries.

Fantasy Spin: It would have been more comforting for fantasy owners if Finley could have capitalized more frequently than he did on Sunday, however, it was tough sledding for the entire Packers offense as a whole. That won't often be the case, and if Cobb and Jones miss long periods of time, the Packers will look to their pass-catching tight end to shoulder the load. Finley possesses the athleticism to capitalize on an increased volume, and it's for that reason he can be penned-in as a TE1 with upside next week versus the Browns.
