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.

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 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.

Patriots | Down to barebones at TE

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 07:48:59 -0700

New England Patriots TE Steve Maneri is the only tight end on the roster healthy for the second preseason game. FB James Develin could also fill in at tight end. TE Rob Gronkowski (knee), TE Michael Hoomanawanui (undisclosed) and TE DJ Williams (leg) are unlikely to play.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski 50-50 for opener

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 20:11:47 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has a 50-50 chance to be ready for Week 1, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski could be one of the biggest risk-reward picks in fantasy leagues this year. He is one of the top-two tight ends in all formats when healthy, but there are serious question about whether or not he will be 100 percent when the season begins and whether he can stay healthy for 16 games. Still, you have to start thinking about pulling the trigger if he is still available late in the third round or beyond.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski wearing non-contact jersey

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 12:47:57 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) donned the red non-contact jersey during 7-on-7 drills Monday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The red jersey is to be expected, but it is encouraging that he even participated in team drills. When healthy, Gronkowski is a top-two tight end in all scoring formats.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski feeling good

Sun, 10 Aug 2014 17:23:10 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) said his knee is feeling good after taking some days off and has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery. He continues to be limited during practice and is not sure when he will be cleared for contact.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is taking things slowly with his return to full practice. Gronkowski still has a few weeks to get ready for the start of the season. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end in most leagues, but owners should understand that he is an injury risk.
