Aaron Hernandez Fantasy Stats: New England Patriots TE In Rob Gronkowski's Shadow

The New England Patriots' tight end duo of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski continued to grind through opposing defenses on Sunday night. While Gronkowski took the lead with two touchdown receptions, Hernandez has been able to bring in four passes for 41 yards. Those aren't bad numbers, but they might not tip a game in favor of one's team, either.

Teams that use two tight ends may as well have none for most fantasy players. The Patriots are the obvious exception, however, with Hernandez remaining productive despite Rob Gronkowski also commanding plenty of targets. Hernandez has been the lesser option in recent weeks, but 20 catches, 186 yards and two touchdowns over his last three games is plenty productive for many owners. 

Hernandez came in 10th in YahooSports' tight end fantasy ranking for Week 10, putting him right on the start/sit border in most standard leagues. The nature of the Pats' offense makes him a candidate to put huge numbers when the stars align, however.
