Aaron Hernandez, Brandon Bolden inactive for Patriots: Fantasy implications

Elsa

The Patriots will be without two weapons on offense, while Brandon Lloyd is active. We break down the fantasy implications.

Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and Brandon Bolden (knee) are both officially inactive for the Patriots on Sunday in their London matchup against the St. Louis Rams. New England's injury report leading up to the game was as crowded as ever this week, but these are the two most notable inactives for fantasy football purposes.

Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Brandon Lloyd are all active after being listed as questionable.

Fantasy Take: The Rams have an above-average defense this season, doing well against both the run and the pass, and Tom Brady will be a great test for them. Given the unusual circumstances of playing in London, this could end up being a low-scoring game, but the fantasy values of Stevan Ridley and Danny Woodhead should rise with Bolden out.

The Patriots are on a bye next week, which should at least give Aaron Hernandez an extra week to heal.
