Offense Trade Desk: Week 12
I’m not buying Finley as a top-5 tight end the rest of the season, but his value is headed in the right direction headed into the fantasy postseason. He scored last week and said after the game that his “feud” with Aaron Rodgers has blown over. The Packers offense is going to throw the ball, and Finley could emerge as a redzone threat based on his size. His touchdown potential in a pass happy offense gives him the upside to be a top 10 TE in the season’s final month, and is my pick to be the best TE in the NFC North from this point forward. In weeks 14-16, Green Bay plays three defenses that rank in the bottom third of the league when it comes to defending TE’s. While other owners are waiting for proof that last week’s score wasn’t a fluke, you can beat them to the punch by adding/trading for Finley while his value is extremely low.
