The only thing that makes him matchup proof is injury concerns - he has never shown the aptitude to stay healthy.
When he does manage to play 16 games he'll end up with a high end WR's stat line... 80/12/1000, something along those lines.
I need to revise this statement...
He is among the most frustrating players to own in fantasy.
Is he one of the premire TE's in football? Yes.
Is he a vital cog in the Packers juggernaught of an offense? Yes, perhaps the 2nd most important piece.
Is he matchup proof? Yes, he can dominate a game against anybody.
Is this translating to fantasy studdom? No, not by a long shot.
If you own him, you really have no choice to play him, but with the way Rodgers spreads it around, and the attention opposing defenses commit to Finley, he is just as likey to post a 2 catch dud as he is to post a 7 catch, multi-TD monster week...
