Packers TE Jermichael Finley is 'having a heck of a camp'

We got word a couple weeks ago about how Packers tight end Jermichael Finley @JermichaelF88 is more focused on playing a big game rather than talking one this year. It looks like that has carried over into training camp.
Finley said Wednesday that he is quieter this year, but not by design -- "It just happened." He has put on 10 pounds, but said he has done so without losing any speed or athleticism. He also said he is trying to ignore all of the people on the outside who criticized him for his dropped passes and lack of production. Add it all up, and head coach Mike McCarthy says Finley is "in a very good place. I think he's having a heck of a camp."

Fantasy Analysis:

In a season where the tight end position has a bunch of questions after Jimmy Graham, a focused, healthy Finley has top-five upside in the Packers' offense. Feel free to take a chance on him in the eighth or ninth round of your draft, and see if you can turn a out a profit. Just don't complain if he burns you again.
