Aaron Hernandez will not play Week 8 when the Patriots take on the Rams in London. We break down the fantasy implications.
Aaron Hernandez suffered a setback on his ankle injury in practice this week, and will not play when the New England Patriots take on the St. Louis Rams in London, ESPN reports. Hernandez was held out of practice Thursday and Friday after being a limited participant Wednesday.
Hernandez played in Weeks 6 and 7 after a three-week layoff due to an ankle injury suffered in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. The Patriots have a bye in Week 9, giving Hernandez two weeks to rest before taking on the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 11.
Fantasy Impact: Hernandez owners should be doing everything they can to secure a starter this weekend. Hopefully they already have a decent Plan B on their bench. If not, the likes of Jared Cook, Greg Olsen, Dustin Keller, Joel Dreessen and Brandon Myers are owned in less than 60 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy leagues.
