Patriots | Aaron Hernandez could miss four months

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (shoulder) could need around four months to recover from shoulder surgery. He could be put on the Physically Unable to Perform list when training camp opens.

Fantasy Tip: That would leave him with enough time to be ready for the season. However, any potential setbacks could be costly. Julian Edelman is likely to be the main beneficiary if Hernandez misses time. He is used as a slot receiver pretty often, and Edelman could receive an increase in targets. Jake Ballard could also become an interesting name. However, it's still early - sit tight for now.
