New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is officially questionable for Week 12. The Patriots and Jets will conclude this evening's Thanksgiving games. While Hernandez is a game-time decision, there is the feeling that he will suit up for this division game.
Moreover, the team just lost TE Rob Gronkowski, which left some awfully big shoes to fill. The Pats need Hernandez to make his comeback tonight.
Fantasy Analysis: The good thing about Hernandez being a game-time decision is that this game comes early in the week. Fantasy owners can wait to receive confirmation of Hernandez's status before making the necessary moves. However, if he does start for New England, he must be in your lineup.
With Gronkowski out, Hernandez will look to fill in and could statistically mirror Gronk's regular output. If active, Hernandez is a TE1 in Week 12.
