Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley has been dialed in during offseason activities, according to tight end coach Jerry Fontenot. "He seems like he's really dialed in. As far as expectations go, I didn't set any expectations last year, we just wanted to continue to improve each and every week, and that's the same mentality we're taking this year let's get better, let's find a starting point and let's get better each and every week. We're capable of doing great things," Fontenot said. "I think we definitely had a year to grow off of last year and the way we finished off the year, I'm happy with where we're starting. But again, we have a long ways to go."
Fantasy Tip: Finley is looking to rebound after only hauling in two touchdowns in 2012. A focused Finley in practice and preseason games could lead to big things in the regular season.
