Aaron Hernandez dominant in first half against Texans for fantasy owners

Aaron Hernandez is healthy and impossible to cover.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has dominated the Houston Texans in the first half on Monday Night Football.

Hernandez already has six catches for 37 yards and two touchdowns in a little over a quarter of action. Hernandez spent a good chunk of the season with an injured ankle, but he looks healthy and back to his dominant ways for the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: With Rob Gronkowski out for New England, Aaron Hernandez has assumed a featured role in the Patriots' passing game. Due to injuries of his own, Hernandez hasn't taken advantage of that in recent weeks, but he's off to a good start on Monday Night Football in Week 14.

The Patriots play against San Francisco and Jacksonville to close out the fantasy football season, so it's not crazy to think Hernandez will be the No. 1 tight end the rest of the way. If you've been patient with him all season, sit back and enjoy the benefits.
