Patriots | Rob Gronkowski surgery minor, per agent

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (forearm, back) back surgery, which he'll undergo soon, "is a new injury and it's minor, it's not as significant [as his prior back injury]," said Drew Rosenhaus, Gronkowski's agent, during an appearance on Miami's WQAM radio. "I think it's more preventive maintenance than anything else."

Fantasy Tip: Though Gronk could still be a value pick if he tumbles down draft boards and his rehab looks to be going OK, fantasy owners shouldn't be as strongly optimistic as Rosenhaus is. It's his job to do so. Yours is to hedge risky decisions, and as a result, anyone who drafts Gronk is almost forced to take a reliable backup.
