Patriots | Rob Gronkowski dressed for opener

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 16:06:45 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is dressed Thursday, Aug. 13, for the preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. TE Scott Chandler is not dressed.

Fantasy Tip: With Gronkowski unlikely to see much playing time, Michael Hommanawanui, Jake Bequette, Jimmay Mundine and Logan Stokes will likely split the rest of the reps.

Patriots | Scott Chandler seeing a lot of work

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 15:38:51 -0700

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler is seeing a lot of targets in training camp and could be a scary complement to TE Rob Gronkowski in two-tight end packages.

Fantasy Tip: Chandler had 47 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns last year with the Buffalo Bills. He's unlikely to have 70 targets again unless Gronk is hurt this year, but he could be a red zone threat for the Patriots. Because Gronk is around, Chandler is nothing more than a low-end TE2, though.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski sees bonus early

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 07:39:31 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had his deal restructured Tuesday, Aug. 4, which awarded him $4 million of his $10 million bonus that was due at the end of the 2015 league year. Gronkowski's contract called for a $10 million option bonus for the team to decide upon by the end of the 2015 league year that would, in effect, kick in the remaining four years on his deal. If the team opted to decline that bonus, Gronkowski would become a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk looks to be the top target at tight end with Jimmy Graham's move to Seattle's power-running offense.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski finished the year with 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns and showed that when he is fully healthy, he is still the top fantasy option at the tight end spot.

Patriots | Seattle looking to shut down Gronk

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 09:17:13 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is an offensive weapon that the Seattle Seahawks are focused on shutting down during the Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll thinks his team matches up well against the All-Pro tight end, though, as LBs K.J. Wright and Bruce Irvin are "pretty tall and long" and SS Kam Chancellor is "about as big a strong safety as you can find." The Seahawks will be focused on not allowing Gronkowski and QB Tom Brady to take over the game.

Fantasy Tip: Opposing tight ends have been a weakness for the Seahawks this year, so Gronkowski is basically a no-brainer play this weekend at FantasyScore for a salary of $7,777 (15.55% of cap).

Seahawks | Seattle struggles against TEs

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 10:51:48 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski could cause a problem for the Seattle Seahawks during Super Bowl XLIX, because the Seahawks defense allowed 11 touchdowns to tight ends this season, which was third most in the NFL. Gronkowski led the Patriots in touchdown catches (12) during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has been a great fantasy option for owners this season and should be another good option even though he is facing a tough Seahawks defense. Gronkowski costs $7,777 (15.55% of the cap) on FantasyScore and should be worth the price for owners.

Patriots | Seattle to be physical with Gronk?

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:39:56 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is often a tough matchup for opposing defenses, but Seattle Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane said he doesn't think Gronkowski is "that good." "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls," Lane said. Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Lane could be lined up often against Gronkowski in the slot in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($7,777, 15.55% of cap) will cost you at FantasyScore this weekend, but it's either him or Luke Willson from the Seahawks, basically. You can save money by avoiding Gronk, but it's probably not the smart move.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plays well against Colts

Sat, 17 Jan 2015 15:38:48 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has 17 catches for 297 yards and one touchdown in four career games against the Indianapolis Colts. He has gained 71 yards after contact as well.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk ($7,100; 14.2% of your cap) is unquestionably the best option at the position on FantasyScore this weekend. That means you're going to have to nail your sleepers to get ahead of your competition.
