Patriots | Rob Gronkowski could be used in red zone

It's uncertain how much New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) will play if he's active in Week 7 against the New York Jets, but he could be used on every play in the red zone if he winds up being limited at all. The Patriots have converted just nine touchdowns in 22 trips inside their opponent's 20-yard line this season. They are ranked 30th in the league in that category after being ranked first in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: If Gronkowski plays, it'll be hard not to put him into your starting lineup, depending on what your other tight end option is. He could be used as a decoy by New England, but that's unlikely if he's been cleared and is active on game day.
