Fantasy Trader’s Fantasy Football Roundtable: Jermichael Finley
I’ve been invited to participate in Fantasy Trader’s fantasy football roundtable.
This week’s topic:
Jermichael Finley went bonkers late in the year. He notched 70+ yards in four of the last five and scored four of his five touchdowns over that span as well. Fact or fiction for 2010?
Absolute fact. The only thing that will hold him back is injury. He’s a huge target (6’5″, 247) with great speed and athleticism. His body is very fluid as he’s able to make adjustments to the ball. He also possess soft hands.
He’ll be just 23 next year and he’s already formed a great rapport with Aaron Rodgers, who’s easily one of the top tier fantasy QBs. The ageless wonder Donald Driver has to slow down at some point, which should open up even more opportunities for Finley.
He was a beast down the stretch and Arizona could not check him in the playoff shootout. I currently have him as my 5th ranked fantasy TE, and I think he actually may move up the more I process his explosiveness.
