Patriots | Rob Gronkowski suits up

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 08:13:56 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) is on the field for the organized team activities Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: The team has been cautious with Gronk this offseason due to an undisclosed ailment. It's not something that should affect the top tight end target in fantasy.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski should be ready for camp

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:17:16 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) said he will be ready for training camp despite missing minicamp last week. Gronkowski said he and the coaching staff are on the same page and everything is going smoothly.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk's injury and status are vague, but it doesn't seem to be a serious situation. He should still be the top tight end selected in fantasy drafts, either late in the first round or early in the second round.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski out with cryptic ailment

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:07:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) reported with the rest of his teammates Tuesday, June 7, and is continuing to work behind the scenes as the club takes a cautious approach with an undisclosed physical ailment that isn't considered a long-range concern, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It could be a case of the team just limiting his reps early on after a slew of injuries in recent years. Gronk is likely to be the first tight end off the board in most formats if he's healthy.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski not at practice

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 11:28:02 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 7. It is not known if his absence has anything to do with his contract status or a possible injury. He currently ranks 16th among tight ends in base salary.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski may be upset with his contract situation but likely will report for training camp if he does not participate during the current minicamp. He is the best fantasy tight end in the league and should be selected in one of the first two rounds in most leagues.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett, Tom Brady connecting

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:44:03 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Martellus Bennett connected several times in the red zone, including some touchdowns, during organized team activities Thursday, May 26. Bennett was New England's primary tight end in practice with TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) not practicing.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Gronk is healthy, Bennett will play second fiddle. Bennett could prove to be a viable red-zone threat, though, and is still worth drafting as a TE2 in his new confines.

Patriots | Key Patriots absent Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:17:29 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot), RB LeGarrette Blount (knee), RB Dion Lewis (knee), WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are infamous for their vague injury reports and resting of players. Obviously they're going to take caution with the players listed above, though. As long as none of these guys suffer any setbacks this offseason, they should be good to go for the start of the regular season. Edelman and Gronk should both be viewed as fantasy starters at their respective positions, with more value in PPR formats. Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR formats if he can stay healthy, while Blount has RB3 potential if he, too, can keep his health. Amendola is the biggest injury risk; he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.

Patriots | Gronk not concerned about his contract

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 10:26:51 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he's not concerned about his contract. "No, that's not on my mind at all. I started offseason workouts yesterday. It just feels great to be back with the team working out, getting back in football shape and getting prepared for the season."

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is signed through 2019 at pretty reduced rates in comparison to his talent level. He's the top tight end in fantasy, bar none. There doesn't seem to be much concern for a holdout right now.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski's option to be picked up

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 05:57:28 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will have the remainder of his $10 million option exercised before March 9. The team picked up $4 million of the $10 million in the option in August, and he's under control through the 2019 season.

Fantasy Tip: I don't think we're going out on a limb by saying Gronk is the top tight end in fantasy.

Patriots | No surgery for Rob Gronkowski

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:07:07 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) did not require surgery on his knee or back, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The injuries didn't seem to impact Gronk too badly, at least in the playoffs. He should be fine for offseason activities since there's no surgery to recover from. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks or new ailments over the next few months, he'll be the top fantasy tight end to target next season.

Panthers | Greg Olsen excels on deep passes

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 10:25:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has 22 receptions on passes thrown between 15 and 30 yards downfield in 2015 (including playoffs), the most since New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and former New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham each had 21 in 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was 3-for-3 on such throws in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos, so Olsen could be primed for a huge day in Super Bowl 50, especially since the Broncos' safeties (T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart) are both battling lower-body injuries. Olsen could easily be the most productive skill-position player on either side on Super Sunday.
