Fantasy Football Week 16: Don't Give Up On Jermichael Finley

It's been a disappointing season for fantasy owners of Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley. He's been inconsistent all season, and after going without a catch two weeks ago against the Raiders, he had more drops than receptions against the Chiefs. With a possible fantasy football championship on the line, it's hard to stick with him if you have another solid TE on your roster. But he's a high-risk, high-reward, play this week.

He had three TD receptions against the Bears back in September. His ability to work the deep middle could cause a match-up nightmare against a cover-2 scheme. He's as big as the linebackers and at least as fast as the safeties. Plus, LB Lance Briggs might not be able to play, and starting S Chris Conte is out for the season. If Finley can correct the issues with drops (I know, it's a big issue), then he could easily lead the passing attack on Sunday for the Packers.
