Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is questionable with a shoulder injury. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has been limited in practice this week and is questionable in Week 6 with a shoulder injury. Since he was not a complete scratch from practice all week, it seems like Finley could be a game-time decision. This Sunday, the Packers go on the road to face the undefeated Houston Texans on primetime.

Finley's possible absence from this weekend's matchup will not be detrimental to the team's potential success. He has not been an impact player for the Packers as most of the offensive success has come from the wide receivers. Green Bay has just as much of a chance to win against Houston with Finley than without him.

Fantasy Analysis: Finley has been a tremendous fantasy disappointment once again in 2012. The Packers expected Finley to be an impact player at the tight end position and so did fantasy owners. He has failed on both accounts, leaving fantasy owners and coaches extremely frustrated. And probably Aaron Rodgers, too.

Finley hasn't helped the Packers put points on the board and his repeated drops have become more of a signature rather than a rare error. If you own Jermichael Finley, it would be wise to seek out other options if you haven't already. Players like Kyle Rudolph and Scott Chandler, while not household names, are much better options than Finley at this point.
