Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, WR Brandon Lloyd questionable, expected to play

Aaron Hernandez's limitations in practice turned out to be very real, not just rest, when the Patriots ruled him out for Sunday's game today. But for the rest of their big-time fantasy options, it seems to be business as usual. New England has listed tight end Rob Gronkowski @RobGronkowski and wide receivers Brandon Lloyd @mrblloyd and Wes Welker @WesWelker as questionable to play against the Rams in London. They were limited in practice all week once again, but they are fully expected to suit up this weekend.

Fantasy Analysis:

Gronk has the hip injury; Welker is listed with an ankle injury, and Lloyd was added this week with a knee injury. The Rams' defense is much improved from one year ago, but all of these guys should be started in 12-team leagues.
Elsewhere on the Patriots' injury report, running back Brandon Bolden @BB_HulkSmash has been ruled out for a second consecutive game because of his knee injury. Shane Vereen @ShaneVereen34 will once again see more work behind Stevan Ridley.
