Jermichael Finley has a composite ranking as the 10th best fantasy tight end. With an Average Draft Position (ADP) of 104, he will likely be taken in the 8th or 9th round of most 12-team drafts.
Finley is one of the most polarizing tight ends in football, as he’s ranked as high as fifth by some experts and as low as 21st by others. The 6’5, 247 pound tight end has the talent to be an elite tight player, but never seems to be able to produce with any consistency.
Finley is a player who always seems poised for greatness before he finds a way to self destruct. He had his best season in 2011 when he brought in 55 receptions for 767 yards and 8 touchdowns, but crashed and burned again in 2012 with 667 yards and two lousy touchdowns. He also spent a great deal of time bashing his quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the media.
If Finley can recapture the form that he had in 2011, he will be a solid fantasy starter for your team. However, if he repeats his performance from last season, he is nothing but fantasy poison.
The truth is that Finely is a risky pick that could easily blow up in your face and fantasy owners should seek out a more stable option on draft day.
