Fantasy Tip: Grab Martellus Bennett where available. He should be a TE1 the rest of the way.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski needs surgery|
Thu, 01 Dec 2016 10:45:03 -0800
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) suffered a herniated disc during the team's Week 13 game and will need to undergo surgery Friday, Dec. 2, according to a source. There is no timetable for his return.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski likely will miss the rest of the season because of the injury. Fantasy owners will need to find other options to use in their starting lineups and can drop Gronkowski if they need the roster space. Martellus Bennett should have a bigger role in the Patriots' passing game and will be a No. 1 tight end moving forward.

|Patriots | Gronk cleared to attend event|
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 21:58:16 -0800
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was unable to attend an event Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Boston Children's Hospital due to the recommendation of the team's medical staff, as he continues to recover from a back injury. He has been cleared to attend a separate event later in the week, however.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Gronk will be able to practice in full at any point this week, but being cleared for an outside event after previous restrictions sounds like a step forward. It will be a game-time decision, most likely, for the stud fantasy option who has a propensity for injury.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski not practicing|
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 11:13:53 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski suffered a back injury early in the team's Week 12 game and was not able to return, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He may be limited if he is active this week, so owners may want to look at healthier options if Gronkowski does not practice this week.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski will not return|
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:17:48 -0800
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) will not return to the Week 12 game against the New York Jets after leaving the game in the first quarter due to a back ailment.
Fantasy Tip: Gronk entered the game banged up after missing the Week 11 outing due to a perforated lung, and now this. Fantasy owners of Gronk cannot seem to catch a break down the stretch of the regular season.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski injures back|
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:11:30 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Gronkowski has a chance to return to the game. He entered the game with a chest injury and was a risky option for fantasy owners. Gronkowski is a must-start option when healthy, but owners will need other options ready in case he misses time.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski active|
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 12:19:23 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has been dealing with his chest injury for a few weeks, which makes him a risky option this week. Gronkowski may receive limited playing time during the game but should still be considered a No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely to play|
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 06:36:13 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is a somewhat risky fantasy option this afternoon and those who choose to start him should lower their expectations.

|Patriots | Rob Gronkowski cleared to fly|
Sat, 26 Nov 2016 11:38:35 -0800
Updating a previous story, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (chest) made the trip to New York on Saturday, Nov. 26. Gronkowski was not cleared to fly last week on the team's cross-country trip to visit the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy Tip: It confirms Gronkowski is at worst a game-time decision, as was reported earlier. It also means he is trending in the right direction, so owners can feel good about the odds they'll have him back next week at the latest. Just like about any other time he sees the field, Gronkowski is an elite TE1 play if he suits up.
