Patriots | Loss of Rob Gronkowski could be huge

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:26:36 -0800

The New England Patriots offense has been an entirely different animal with TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) on the field this year. The Pats were 22nd in points per game before Gronkowski returned this year and were seventh entering their Week 14 contest. They were 30th in red zone efficiency without Gronkowski and were 11th entering Sunday, Dec. 8. They were 19th in passing yards per game without him and were 10th entering the game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, the New England offense will miss Gronk for the rest of the year. It'll open up more targets for the rest of the receiving core and Shane Vereen, who had a career day in the passing game after Gronk left the game in Week 14.

Patriots | Believe Rob Gronkowski tore ACL

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 13:59:22 -0800

Updating earlier reports, the New England Patriots believe TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) tore his right anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: He'll have an MRI to confirm it, but the initial reports suggested the torn ACL. If so, he'll miss the rest of the year. Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) is also hurt, and the team may have to go with Matthew Mulligan. The team will likely have to lean on Shane Vereen, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman more the rest of the way. With Vereen so heavily used in the passing game, expect LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley to split a chunk of the carries.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski still working his way back

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 09:32:31 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, despite his nine-catch, 143-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 9, played only 48 of 75 offensive snaps against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's still working his way back from four surgeries on his left forearm, and he was battling a hamstring injury last week. "It felt good getting more games under me and I'm feeling good, getting better every week," Gronkowski said. "When we're clicking, we're clicking and it's awesome." The Patriots ran 36 of their 75 plays with two tight ends on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski makes the Patriots so much more dynamic on offense and also benefits the running game tremendously. With him back and getting close to full strength, the Pats have become a much stronger offense. Gronk is a no-brainer must-start on a weekly basis.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski feels good

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 10:53:16 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) said he feels fine after his season debut in Week 7. "I felt good," he said. "Everything checked out well. And all with the injury stuff and everything, I'm going to tell you guys now that that's all going to be in the past, so I won't be answering any more questions about that and the focus now is about the opponents coming up on the week." He also said he expects his workload to increase as the season wears on. He played 51 of the team's 79 offensive snaps against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk went over 100 yards receiving in his first game back and was targeted 17 times by Tom Brady. That's very encouraging for his owners, especially since his involvement will go up. He's a must-start.

Jets | Antonio Allen to cover Rob Gronkowski

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 13:27:28 -0700

New York Jets SS Antonio Allen has been tabbed to cover New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) if he plays in Week 7. "I know he's a strong big type of dude," said Allen, who defended Gronkowski in the first game last season. "He's a big target. (I've) just got to stay in front of him and stay aggressive. Strong guy. I remember a couple times he came off the ball and fired off and he kind of like, hit me and got me off balance, so I have to change up something." Gronkowski has 21 catches, 222 yards and four touchdowns in his last three games against the Jets.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski could be used in red zone

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 10:10:33 -0700

It's uncertain how much New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) will play if he's active in Week 7 against the New York Jets, but he could be used on every play in the red zone if he winds up being limited at all. The Patriots have converted just nine touchdowns in 22 trips inside their opponent's 20-yard line this season. They are ranked 30th in the league in that category after being ranked first in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: If Gronkowski plays, it'll be hard not to put him into your starting lineup, depending on what your other tight end option is. He could be used as a decoy by New England, but that's unlikely if he's been cleared and is active on game day.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski cleared

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 06:48:06 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) has been cleared by doctors to play in Week 7, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Fantasy Tip: This is a significant step towards playing in Week 7. However, with as much smoke and mirrors and as cautious as Gronk has been thus far, we'd proceed with caution. If he does suit up, it's not known if he'll be on a snap count or limited at all. We'd rate him as a midrange TE1 this week.
