Never stopped believing in his talent; seems like he may finally have matured enough to have breakout season   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Finley looks to be in shape and ready to go, although he does square off against a 49ers D that was 11th against fantasy tight ends.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
This guy has had fantasy gurus going crazy year after year, expecting a breakout performance from a guy behind an Aaron Rodgers powered offense. Nothing but praise has come out of camp surrounding Finley, as he sets out for a contract year. With the loss of Greg Jennings and injury to Jordy Nelson, Finley will see more goal-line looks and pump that measly 2 TD number in 2012 up to around 7 TDs with around 750 yards. If you miss on Graham and some of the others at the top, Finley is a guy you...   
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Picked up 15 targets and a score in two games vs. SF last season.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
I like Finley's upside but 49ers are not a great matchup for him at all.

 Not a huge gamble by me but I think Thomas contributes Thursday night against a revamped Ravens defense

Jermichael has a few things working in his favor heading into 2013. The running game is looking weak, Aaron Rodgers is still the QB, <nobr><a href="#" class="FAtxtL" id="FALINK_2_0_1">Greg Jennings</a></nobr> is in Minnesota, and most importantly. Finley is on a contract year.
