Aaron Hernandez limited practice of no concern for fantasy owners

Stew Milne-US PRESSWIRE

The Patriots tight end played every snap on Sunday and looks very healthy. We break down the fantasy implications.

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was limited in Wednesday practice, though it is likely just a precaution and we are likely to see this continue for the rest of the season knowing Bill Belichick. Hernandez has missed a little more than half of the season with an ankle injury but played every snap in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins and caught eight passes for 97 yards.

Hernandez hasn't caught a touchdown pass since Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks but with Rob Gronkowski on the mend, he could get more opportunities against the Texans this week.

Fantasy Take: Hernandez is one of the top tight ends in fantasy again now that he is healthy. Start him without worry.
