Aaron Hernandez injury update: Fantasy value remains in doubt

Jim Rogash

When the Patriots take on the Colts, all eyes will be on Aaron Hernandez. No, they won't, but if you own him read on about his fantasy implications.

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, leaving open more doubt that he'll finally be able to return to the field for good. Hernandez was limited in practice all last week before ultimately being ruled out for New England's matchup against the Bills.

The Pats take on the Colts this week and everyone will be looking at Hernandez versus Dwayne Allen. No, they will probably be talking about the quarterbacks. But there will be some interest in whether or not Hernandez is active, so keep checking in.

Fantasy Take: If active, Hernandez is a solid fantasy start again as a favorite red zone target. If not active, he would not make a very good fantasy start.
