Brandon Lloyd (knee) was limited again in Thursday's practice.
Lloyd is coming off his best fantasy performance and second-best in terms of receptions and yards this season. He will be fine for Sunday night's game versus the 49ers. Rotoworld ranks Lloyd No. 36 among fantasy receivers for Week 15.Wes Welker (ankle) was limited again on Thursday.
Welker is fourth in receptions and 12th in receiving yards over the past five weeks. He's good to go for Sunday night's game versus the 49ers.Aaron Hernandez (ankle) was limited again in Thursday's practice.
The "limited" has no meaning in New England. Hernandez is back to full health. There's no fantasy tight end we would rather own for the final three weeks of the season.RotoworldRob Gronkowski (forearm) has still not resumed practicing.
So much for the Boston Globe's report that Gronkowski would "try" to practice this week. Fractured bones usually take 4-6 weeks to heal and Gronk will be just four weeks removed from his injury on Sunday. It's entirely possible that the Patriots exercise caution and hold him out until their first playoff game.
