Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez out four to six weeks

A source close to the New England Patriots told the NFL Network that tight end Aaron Hernandez @AaronHernandez is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a low ankle sprain. While making a block downfield for WR Julian Edelman @Edelman11, Hernandez had his ankle rolled on and immediately went to the locker room. The Patriots signed free agent TE Kellen Winslow Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is a big blow to New England's offense but they have enough talent on offense where this really should not hold them back. TE Rob Gronkowski @RobGronkowski should see the biggest bump to his fantasy point total since he often works the underneath routes. In addition, since WR Wes Welker @WesWelker has been limited in the Pats' first two games, New England may opt for more three-WR sets. As for Winslow's fantasy impact, I wouldn't consider adding him until he produced on the field. Hernandez is worth stashing on your bench for the next month.
