Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plans to wear brace

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 10:33:46 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee), who said he fully expects to play in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins, will likely wear a brace over his surgically repaired knee, but he doesn't plan on changing the style in which he plays the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk could be a bargain for those in traditional leagues if he can stay healthy all year. In daily games for the season opener, it's probably wise to play it safe and go with another option for your tight end, though, until we know he's 100 percent healthy.

Patriots | No decision on Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 10:12:56 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (knee) status for Week 1 has not been determined, according to head coach Bill Belichick. "I'm glad that Rob's optimistic about this situation," Belichick said. "We'll go through the week of practice and take a look at everything, everybody, and see where everybody's at and try to do what we feel like is best for the team. With all due respect to Rob -- I'm glad he feels the way he does -- but, in the end, we'll have to make the decision we feel like is best for the team and we'll do that as we go through the week."

Fantasy Tip: This could be Belichick being cautious with the team's plans for Week 1, but it is worth monitoring Gronkowski's practice status throughout the rest of the week. If Gronk is healthy and active in Week 1, he should be started.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski to be on snap count

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 08:29:06 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will be on a snap count in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is still worth starting in most traditional leagues, but his daily-game value takes a hit. For a predetermined, part-time workload, he probably isn't worth the high-end cost yet. We could see more out of Julian Edelman and Shane Vereen in the opener.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely to sit

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 09:07:39 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) continues to make progress in his rehab but likely will sit out the final preseason game. Gronkowski is looking to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Gronkowski will be ready for the season even though he did not play in the preseason. Gronkowski should be considered a starting tight end in all leagues, but owners should have a solid backup on the team since Gronkowski has dealt with injuries in the past.

Patriots | No setbacks for Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:30:48 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has not encountered any setbacks from the end of last week, and the acquisition of TE Timothy Wright is not a sign that the team is concerned about Gronkowski's health. The Patriots have wanted to remain cautious with Gronkowski's workload this preseason. Wright is a "move" tight end, similar to the role free-agent TE Aaron Hernandez used to play with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski remains a fine risk as a TE1, as long as he stays healthy. As Wesseling mentions, Wright won't ever take the place of Gronkowski in blocking situations, but he could be useful as a TE2, especially if Gronk is limited at all early in the season.

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 13:42:20 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will not play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: The team continues to be cautious with Gronk as he works his way back from a knee injury. Gronkowski is a TE1 if he can stay healthy, which is the big question heading into the season.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski part of drills

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 12:56:35 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills for the first time this offseason Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It seems that Gronkowski is well on his way to being ready for the regular season opener. As long as he's healthy, he could be the highest-scoring tight end in fantasy football.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski favoring knee?

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 15:57:57 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) is still favoring his right knee in practice, and he ran with a decent limp Thursday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: The Gronk can be a beast when healthy, the problem is he now has an extensive injury history, which should move him down a few pegs from being considered a top-tier tight end. He still has some time to recover before the season opener, but he'll be a pretty big risk for his price in Week 1.
