Fantasy football owners of TE Aaron Hernandez have had to adjust their rosters this season due to his injury issues this season. This week, Hernandez owners will have to once again look elsewhere for production at the tight end position. The New England Patriots will play the St. Louis Rams in London this week, but Aaron Hernandez will not be playing, in fact, he didn’t even make the trip to England.
Albert Breer reports on Twitter, “My understanding is that Aaron Hernandez did not make the trip to London.”
Fortunately for Hernandez owners, the tight end position is exceptionally deep in the NFL currently. One player that fantasy owners might be able to acquire is New York Jets TE Dustin Keller. Keller has been saddled with injury issues this season, but he is back in the Jets lineup. On a team lacking playmakers on the outside, Keller will likely see a lot of targets again this week against the Miami Dolphins.
Keller was targeted seven times against the Patriots, catching everything thrown his way for 93 yards and one touchdown. Keller is only owned by 43% of ESPN fantasy owners.
