Patriots | Rob Gronkowski a full participant

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 07:23:06 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been a full participant in practice and hasn't missed a practice this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: That's a great sign for Gronk, but the number of injuries is piling up on his 28-year-old body. The tight end fray is starting to catch up to him, and the risk associated with taking him so high in drafts may not be worth it anymore. The team is also loaded with receivers and running backs that catch the ball. He's still an elite TE1, if not still the best at the position, but the risk is glaring.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski has no restrictions

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 10:29:29 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is "feeling great" after several weeks on the field and in the gym. He has practiced without restriction.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is a huge liability with as much upside in fantasy as the No. 1 tight end. He'll cost a pretty penny in what is a fairly deep but also precarious tight end class.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski looks like old self

Fri, 26 May 2017 18:46:46 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been a full participant in drills during voluntary workouts, and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Gronkowski has been "involved in everything" and "looks like Gronk."

Fantasy Tip: Despite the injury history, Gronkowski still deserves to be the first tight end off the board in drafts as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. His upside is unmatched at the position.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski cleared to take field

Thu, 25 May 2017 12:12:05 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has progressed well enough that he has been cleared to take the field for organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski's injury history is well-documented, but he remains the best at his position. It appears he's on track to be ready to play by Week 1, so he should continue to be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts.

Patriots | Restructured deal for Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 23 May 2017 14:35:41 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski restructured his deal for 2017 and has a chance to become the highest paid tight end in the league. The deal can boost his salary from $5.25 million to $10.75 million.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is the best tight end in the NFL, so it makes sense that he'd be the highest paid at the position. He should be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts, but there is the injury risk as he has missed 22 games in his seven-year career.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski ready for workouts

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 07:36:29 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) said he'll be ready for offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: The injuries are starting to really pile up on Gronk, who turns 28 in May. He's one of the best players in fantasy when healthy, but you really have to back him up with an upside tight end.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski confident in Week 1 return

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 10:56:46 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) told ESPN's Cari Champion on Friday, Feb. 24, he has "no doubt" he will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: The 27-year-old Gronkowski is recovering from his third back surgery since 2009 and his eighth surgery overall, but he remains undaunted in his quest to dominate NFL defenses. Gronk was rarely ever completely healthy in 2016 and was limited to eight games, finishing with 25 catches for 540 yards and three touchdowns. Assuming he is cleared in time to start the opener, Gronkowski should return to the top of the heap at his position and be a worthy top-20 pick in fantasy again.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski wants a long career

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 13:14:51 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he plans on playing as long as he can even though he has dealt with multiple injuries during his career.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has missed as least one game in each of the last five season and has played seven or fewer games in two of the last four seasons. Gronkowski probably is the No. 1 tight end when he is healthy, but he will be a risky option in fantasy drafts next season because of his injury history.

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 08:24:07 -0800

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (back) surgery wasn't as major as his previous two back operations, according to his brother, Dan Gronkowski.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is out for the season, and he'll be an option early in drafts next season with a big caution flag.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski place on IR

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 13:28:45 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured Reserve list Saturday, Dec. 3, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski will miss the rest of the season, so he can be dropped in all leagues. Martellus Bennett will serve as the Patriots' No. 1 tight end and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
