Jermichael Finley won't see much dropoff in fantasy value with toe injury

Thearon W. Henderson

While Jermichael Finley might not be 100 percent, he's ready to go for Week 2.

Jermichael Finley was limited in practice with a toe injury this week, but will play in Sunday's game against the Redskins after having "normal maintenance" on his toe, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.

Earlier in the week, Finley said his toe was a "tad bit painful," but he has a high tolerance for pain. The injury shouldn't limit his snaps in Week 2.

Fantasy impact: Five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 provided a promising start to Finley's season. All the talk surrounding him in the offseason claimed he was in better shape and had an improved work ethic. Aaron Rodgers looks to be targeting his No. 1 tight end more often in 2013.

Finley's toe won't hinder his value much. Start him like you normally would. He's a top 10 option for Week 2 as the third target in Rodgers' arsenal.
