Patriots | Aaron Hernandez update

New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (shoulder) was limited to side work during OTAs on Tuesday, June 4. He later caught passes from QB Tom Brady on another field while going through a route tree and QB coach Mike Kafka after that session. Hernandez appears to be progressing.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez may be cleared for Week 1 before Rob Gronkowski (shoulder, back), who obviously was absent from OTAs as he prepares for more surgery. Without Gronkowski, Hernandez could be in store for a boost in targets but might face more defensive attention along the way. He's still a midrange to high-end TE1, though.
