Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is questionable for Week 16: Fantasy Implications

Jared Wickerham

New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez is questionable for Week 16. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was officially listed as questionable for Week 16. The Pats tight end stayed on the injury report, listed with an 'ankle.'

Even though he was limited all week in practice, he is expected to get the start this Sunday. Coming off a tough loss, the Patriots will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars this week.

Fantasy Analysis: While Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski both have questionable tags, it is Hernandez that is expected to start for the team. He will be a top fantasy tight end against a terrible Jaguars team.

After the home loss to the 49ers, the Patriots could be looking to take their frustrations out on the Jaguars. Expect a big game from Hernandez this week.
