Fantasy Impact: A toe issue can be a nagging injury that lingers throughout the course of a season, especially for a player of Finley's size. Although Finley was expected to immediately become a top-notch fantasy tight end coming out of college, he has failed to remain in the mix as one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets. Receivers Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and James Jones tend to get more targets than Finley. That said, Andrew Quarless is not a threat to steal playing time from Finley, and he's still a fantasy starter.
