Patriots | Aaron Hernandez expected to miss a few weeks

New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (knee) is expected to miss a few weeks because of the ankle injury he suffered Week 2. He likely will not return until October at the earliest.

Fantasy Tip: Don't dump Hernandez to the wire in leagues with at least 12 teams and 16 rostered players. The Patriots will rely more on Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd and Rob Gronkowski

The offense two tight ends on all 67 offensive snaps in Week 1 but just 20 of 77 plays in Week 2. Daniel Fells (shin) and Michael Hoomanawanui will see more time, but neither player has much tangible fantasy worth.

Free-agent targets Dennis Pitta, Martellus Bennett and Coby Fleener could be available in your league.
