Packers | Jermichael Finley building muscle

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley is estimated to be much closer to his listed weight of 247 pounds after regaining some bulk this offseason. Finley had dropped to around 235 pounds sometime during or after 2010, when he was aiming to play lighter to be used more as a wide recivier. But Finley's assessment of his earlier seasons saw that he was playing well while also retaining strength in mass, so he decided to go back to that physique. "He's back to where I like to see him, the playing weight that he's playing with," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's stronger. He's playing with more confidence. ... I really like the offseason that Jermichael has put together so far."

Fantasy Tip: Finley is considered a fringe TE1, which could make him a value pick in many leagues. With Greg Jennings gone, Finley should see more targets in a potential walk year.
