Patriots | Rob Gronkowski back at practice

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 12:32:28 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) is participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski probably will sit out the third preseason game but appears to be on track for the start of the regular season. He should be the top tight end selected in all fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski still out

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 15:56:40 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) has not practiced since Monday, Aug. 15, although he does not appear to be dealing with a serious ailment.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are mysterious when it comes to their players' injuries and injury designations. They'll take it easy with their star tight end leading up to the season. Since it's nothing serious, Gronk can still be drafted as the first tight end in all formats.

Patriots | Plenty of action for Martellus Bennett?

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 14:45:08 -0700

New England Patriots TEs Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski could be on the field together for up to 80% of the Patriots' plays, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Head coach Bill Belichick views the tight ends as interchangeable and believes they can cause problems for opposing defenses when they're on the field at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: New England hasn't been shy about two-tight end sets in previous years. The Gronk-Bennett duo would be dynamic in the red zone, too, at least on paper. They could also be used together more frequently in the first four games of the season to give Jimmy Garoppolo more high-percentage targets. Gronk is the No. 1 fantasy tight end when healthy, even with Bennett "interfering," but Bennett deserves more credit behind Gronk and is draftable as a midrange TE2.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski out again

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 08:49:49 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk remains one of the best tight ends in fantasy, but the rest of the pack is starting to catch up to his production. He figures to be used heavily the first four weeks without Tom Brady, but injuries are always a concern.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski held out of practice

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 23:40:44 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) was held out of practice on Tuesday, Aug. 16, after an injury scare the previous day. It's unknown if he'll return for the third day of joint practices with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It's Gronk and then everyone else at the TE position, so the fact that he avoided serious injury is music to fantasy owners' ears. Expect the team to adopt a cautious approach with Gronkowski in getting him back on the field.

Patriots | Gronk's injury considered minor

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 21:47:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (undisclosed) injury at practice Monday, Aug. 15, is considered minor.

Fantasy Tip: It's great news for Gronkowski and his fantasy owners in early draft leagues. Martellus Bennett would be the beneficiary of more reps if Gronk suffers some sort of setback.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski leaves practice

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 12:24:29 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) left practice early Monday, Aug. 15, after pulling up while trying to catch a pass in 7-on-7 drills.

Fantasy Tip: The extent of Gronkowski's situation isn't known at this point, but he's no stranger to the injury bug. His status will obviously need to be monitored over the coming days, but Martellus Bennett would immediately gain extra value if Gronk is forced to miss time.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski dropping the ball

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 08:04:14 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski leads the team with seven drops through the first 12 practices in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: It's early, and this seems like a moot stat unless these drops start trickling into preseason games. Gronk is arguably the best tight end in fantasy, but the position is as healthy as it has been in several years with talent. The gap is closing between him and the field.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski had a pectoral injury

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 08:03:18 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (pectoral) had a pectoral injury this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk missed some OTA time with the mysterious injury. His fantasy stock is unchanged, and he's arguably the top tight end in fantasy. The loss of Tom Brady for four games could actually benefit him as inexperienced quarterbacks generally check down to tight ends often.

Patriots | New deal in works for Rob Gronkowski

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 10:48:54 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's agents are working with the Patriots on a new deal, although nothing is imminent.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is the most dominant tight end in the NFL when he's healthy. Tom Brady may be missing the first four games of the season, but Gronk will give Jimmy Garoppolo a big safety blanket. The star tight end should be taken as a late first-round pick or early second-round pick.
