Packers | QB praises Jermichael Finley
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 19:00:50 -0700
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has reportedly jelled nicely with TE Jermichael Finley during training camp, and the quarterback praised his tight end target earlier this week after practice. "I think a guy like Jermichael Finley's had an excellent camp," Rodgers said. "It's fun to watch him make some of the plays that he wasn't making three or four years ago as far as being able to read a defense quickly and diagnose it and get into his route. He's been very consistent for us, and he's been able to stay healthy."
We've heard in the past stories of a rocky relationship between the two, so this is good stuff. It sounds like Rodgers' confidence in Finley is sky high, and that can only help Finley's fantasy value. Right now, Finley is trending upward, and should be considered a Top 10 option at his position, with Top 5 potential. The right spot to nab him on draft day is about Round 8 through 10, and a bit earlier in points per reception (PPR) formats.
