Aaron Hernandez found the end zone against the Seahawks after missing several weeks with an injury. We break down the fantasy implications.
The Patriots finally saw Aaron Hernandez return to action after missing several weeks with an ankle injury. In his first game back since Sept. 9, Hernandez caught six passes for 30 yards and a touchdown on nine targets.
Hernandez was still on a snap count in Week 6, but he managed to make the most of his playing time. Assuming he didn't suffer any setbacks, he should be an even bigger part of the offense next week.
Fantasy Impact: It's a promising sign for Hernandez's owners to see him find the end zone in his return. The talk surrounding the Patriots leading up to this season seemed to indicate he would be a huge target in the red zone, and it looked like that will still be the plan.
As long as Hernandez is healthy, he should be in your lineup next week against the Jets.
