Patriots | Thinking about putting Rob Gronkowski on roster

The New England Patriots are considering adding TE Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) to their roster and not keeping him on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Gronkowski still likely would not be able to play until late September at the earliest.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski would not be allowed to practice until after Week 6 if he is on the PUP list, so adding Gronkowski to their roster would allow him to practice at any point. He is still expected to miss the first few games of the season. He should still be considered a risky No. 1 fantasy tight end, but owners would need a strong No. 2 tight end to fill in while Gronkowski is out.
