He’s hurt you plenty over the past couple season, and like any player who leaves scars on your fantasy football-loving soul, you’ve sworn off Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley – now and for always. Finley, the sixth tight end off the draft board in 2012, finished the season as the 18th highest scoring tight end in fantasy, proving one of the biggest draft day mistakes (if you stubbornly stuck with him as an unquestioned weekly option despite better streaming options from the waiver wire). Finley was largely phased out of the Packers’ aerial attack for chunks of the season, questioning his chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and complaining about a lack of opportunity.

Graham Harrell: Green Bay’s Latest QB Project

On September 30, 2012, Graham Harrell played in his first game for the green and gold. Stepping in for Aaron Rodgers was no small task, especially in the red zone of a tight game.

Fortunately, the Packers won the game and the botched play never stuck...
