The hype train on Finley is definitely building.

I got him for $1 in the 15th round of an auction draft (12 teams) on Sunday but he went at 12.1 in another 12-team league I drafted in on Monday (17 rounds overall).

I got stuck w/ Celek in a draft I did last weekend. Would you suggest picking up Finley instead of Celek? I'd rather not carry 2 TEs.

With all this hype, I dropped Celek and picked up Finley in one of my leagues.

Definitely drop Celek.

If the Eagles go with the spread offense Celek won't be getting many yards at all. Jackson, Kurtis, Maclin, Avant and Westbrook could very well be their main throwing set.

Finley is a much better talent on a team that will actually get him the ball.

Celek imo will be a huge disappointment in that eagles offense.

Ok, cool, I thought both were gonna have similar years, but now I don't feel so bad dropping Celek for Finley. :-D

I bought into the Finley hype but I also drafted Zach Miller to be my #1. I don't know if I want to roll with Finley yet (against the Bears), but I don't like Raiders at all.
Dustin Keller is on my WW. DO you think he will be a better start than Zach Miller while I take a take a wait-and-see approach with Finley? Or should I just throw caution to the wind and start Finley?

I went with a Keller/Finley combo in one league. I'm big on Keller, but I'm a Jets guy, so it could very well simply be my bias.

I've been pimping Finely since before he was drafted, it was obvious when he came out of school early he wasn't ready and left a year too soon, but had you seen him play in College you just knew he was going to dominate at the next level in the passing game. I'm all over him this year in redrafts and dynasties, expect numbers similiar to Greg Olsen's last year.
