TE Aaron Hernandez, WRs Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd all Q for Patriots

Per usual, Aaron Hernandez @AaronHernandez, Brandon Lloyd @mrblloyd and Wes Welker @WesWelker are listed as questionable on the Patriots' injury report. They are reportedly dealing with ankle, knee and ankle ailments, respectively. But none of them missed a day of practice, and they should play their normal amount of snaps Monday night versus the Texans.

Fantasy Analysis:

I know this isn't really news, but I have been cooped up in a library all week, studying for finals, and I feel like I need to make up for my absence by writing something, anything. I'd much rather write about this stuff than mass communication theory, but I digress. You know how you're going to use these guys. Welker is a must-start as a low-end WR1. Hernandez is a must-start at tight end. Opponents have sent 108 passes to TEs against the Texans, the third-highest total in the league, so level of opportunity should be big for him this week. Lloyd should remain on your bench in 12-team leagues. Take out Week 8, and Lloyd has not topped eight fantasy points in any game since Week 4.
