Patriots | Rob Gronkowski to have back surgery

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) will need to undergo back surgery this offseason and is tentatively scheduled to undergo the procedure in mid-June. He likely will miss at least part of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has undergone multiple surgeries on his forearm this offseason and will now need surgery on his back. Owners will know more about his availability for Week 1 when he is able to participate during training camp. Gronkowski should still be considered a strong No. 1 fantasy tight end, but he will be a risky pick because of the injuries. Gronkowski owners will need a strong No. 2 tight end in case Gronkowski misses regular season time.
