Patriots | Rob Gronkowski could start season on PUP list

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) could start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, depending on how his rehab from back and forearm surgeries are going. Gronkowski would have to miss the first six games of the regular season if he started the season on the PUP list.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski will miss the start of training camp because of his surgeries, and his status for Week 1 is also in question. More about his status for the regular season will be known once the team begins camp, but his fantasy status would take a hit if he had to miss the first six weeks. He should still be considered a risky No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues, but owners who take him should look for a solid No. 2 tight end in case Gronkowski misses some games.
