Fantasy Football Rising Stock: Aaron Hernandez

Postby WebHamster » Mon Apr 08, 2013 2:37 pm

Aaron Hernandez has been the sort of dependable football player that elicits the confidence of his team, his fans and fantasy football GMs alike. Clearly, the Patriots believe in him; they signed him through 2018 and gave him a $12.5 million signing bonus. Fantasy GMs are beginning to recognize him as a first-tier TE. 2013 [...]

Aaron Hernandez will be set back by shoulder surgery

The hits keep coming for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' receiving corps.

Tight end Aaron Hernandez underwent shoulder surgery earlier this offseason and likely will miss OTAs and minicamp this spring, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday morning.

Citing two sources, Rapoport said Hernandez likely will be ready by training camp. It is unclear when the injury occurred.

Last week, Hernandez said his goal for the upcoming season was to get through 16 games for the first time in his NFL career.

The news of Hernandez's surgery, coupled with Rob Gronkowski's injury complications, makes the Patriots' depth chart look a little less prolific with Daniel Fells, Jake Ballard, Brad Herman and Michael Hoomanawanui -- who the Pats re-signed Tuesday -- the remaining tight ends on the roster.

After the Patriots lost a chance to add wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders earlier this week, the receiving corps looks to be a concern heading into the 2013 NFL Draft.

While Gronk's injury and the lack of an outside receiving threat are issues, as long as Hernandez is back in the fold in time to knock the rust off with Brady before the season starts, Hernandez's injured shoulder shouldn't be a huge concern.

I drafted Hernandez last year and I just felt like he was missing games even though he didnt need to be. Constantly injured. Not saying past means present but I would definitely count on him missing games.

TE's are fairly deep now to and although the Gronks and Graham's if health are way ahead you have a big patch of solid ones right after that if you miss.
