Jermichael Finley injury update: Packers TE is a must-start in fantasy Sunday

Matthew Stockman

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is likely to play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was listed as probable heading into Sundays game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Finley is dealing with a toe injury -- specifically turf toe -- and has been limited throughout the week. That said, he's been described as "all systems go" heading into Sunday.

Finley has 11 catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns already this season. He had six receptions for 65 yards in a Week 2 win over the Washington Redskins, including a 27-yard touchdown reception in which he broke multiple tackles.

He returned to practice on Thursday and participated on Friday as well. His injury is more painful than it is prohibitive to his ability to play, it seems, so he should see plenty of time and be a big part of the offense.

Fantasy Impact: Aaron Rodgers likes throwing to Finley, and all signs point to the tight end being active. It would be surprising to see him inactive, and it would be surprising to see him limited. If you have him on your fantasy team, you should start him, no questions asked.
