Aaron Hernandez injury update: Questionable but should play for fantasy owners

US PRESSWIRE

Aaron Hernandez is questionable for Week 14 against the Texans. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Monday Night Football against the Houston Texans. Hernandez has dealt with a sprained ankle all season, but he seems to be 100% and the Patriots treat the injury reports like a joke, so he should be ready to play.

Hernandez has struggled with injuries all season, with just 27 catches for 276 yards and two TDs in six games.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez is one of the few Patriots whose questionable tag actually means something, but he should suit up and be productive.

With Rob Gronkowski still out indefinitely, Hernandez is now Tom Brady's top TE target and should be a quality TE1 option in the fantasy playoffs.
