TE: 2011 Jermichael Finley
Green Bay Packers tight ends haven’t had much fantasy success over the past decade, but Jermichael Finley had a good year in 2011. He had a career-best 767 receiving yards, and also eight touchdown catches, which led him to fifth in fantasy points among tight ends that season, according to Fantasy Data.
In recent years, it’s been a good idea to avoid Packers tight ends in fantasy. But that wasn’t the case in 2011, as Finley had an excellent season.
FLEX: 2014 Randall Cobb
In the FLEX spot, we have the choice of a running back, wide receiver or tight end. We’ve gone with Randall Cobb and his dominant 2014 season.
The 2014 season was a great one for the Packers in fantasy. Cobb had the best year of his career, catching 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns, setting career-bests in each category.
Cobb played in all 16 games, and he had over 100 yards five times. Cobb also caught multiple touchdown passes in three games. He had at least one receiving TD in nine games.
Few defenses could stop the wide receiver duo of Nelson and Cobb in 2014, and it led to both players having big fantasy seasons. At the end of the year, Cobb received a new four-year contract worth $40 million.
