Patriots | No setbacks for Rob Gronkowski

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 18:54:49 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) told reporters that he has "no setbacks" in his debut in Week 3 against the Houston Texans. He said he was sore, but he felt fine. "I felt good," he said Wednesday, Sept. 28. And he said he always feels sore after playing a game, "whether you play 10 plays or you play 70." He added the team is being careful with the injury, and hamstrings in particular can be tricky so you cannot "hop right in, and go 100 percent."

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has had a few extra days since last Thursday's game for treatment and to mend, so fantasy owners can expect a much bigger impact in Week 4. He has shredded Buffalo in the past, but there is uncertainty at the quarterback position in Foxboro, so Gronk might not start to hit his stride until Week 5 when Tom Brady is due back from suspension.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited in practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:37:28 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski went without a catch and received just one target in his 2016 debut last week, which burnt anyone eager to receive a return on their early-round investment. However, New England was in control of the game throughout, and there was little need to press Gronkowski into action. Tom Brady returns from suspension in Week 5, and Gronkowski projects to return to being an elite fantasy option then. This week, he is best viewed as a high-risk, high-reward commodity given the unknown surrounding his health and the quarterback situation.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski avoids setback

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:55:06 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) said he suffered no setbacks by playing in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: He should have a larger role in Week 4, but it might not be until Week 5 at Cleveland and with Tom Brady in tow that Gronk may be at full strength. He's a mid-to-low TE1 this week based on potential restrictions.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski quiet in debut

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:07:02 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) played 14 snaps in his season debut Thursday, Sept. 22, finishing without a catch in a 27-0 win over the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the disappointing debut, Gronkowski owners have no choice but to sit and wait. Once he is healthy and Tom Brady is back under center, Gronkowski should be the clear No. 1 fantasy tight end.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski suiting up Thursday

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 16:59:45 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game Thursday, September 22, against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk will be making his 2016 season debut this evening, though owners shouldn't be expecting his usual standout performance. Not only will he be on a snap count, but he'll also be receiving passes from third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who is making his first career start. It's hard to recommend benching Gronk because of his ceiling every time he takes the field, but it's certainly worth consideration if owners have another solid option at tight end.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski will play Thursday

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 14:20:48 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) will take the field against the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 22. It will be his first action of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is a must start whenever he plays no matter the circumstances, but those circumstances could be a lot better tonight. Rookie Jacoby Brissett is starting at quarterback, and the bright side is that Gronk could prove him with a nice safety blanket, although his ceiling is obviously limited without Tom Brady. He's a must-start in seasonal leagues, but fading him in the daily realm for at least a week could be the better play.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plans to play

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 07:24:39 -0700

Updating an earlier report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) has told teammates all week that he plans to play Thursday, Sept. 22, against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is a game-time decision, and he could be on a snap count if he plays. If he suits up, he's at worst a midrange TE1 option in DFS.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski will be game-time call

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 05:16:59 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Thursday, Sept. 22, in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like there's a good chance he could make his season debut tonight, but he could be on a snap count. If he suits up, he's at worst a midrange TE1 option in DFS.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski listed as questionable

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 14:09:05 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to double-check whether Gronkowski is active before locking him in their lineups Thursday. He's been a limited participant in practice all week, but if he's active, he should be started in all formats. Look for Martellus Bennett to take a fantasy hit in that case, but without Gronkowski active, Bennett remains a viable starting option with a higher floor in PPR settings.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited again

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 15:54:11 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was limited in practice Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It will be promising if Gronkowski is upgraded tomorrow, but the Patriots play Thursday night, so they may choose to rest him again either way. Martellus Bennett could be a safety blanket to either Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett, but he's not quite a TE1 consideration in a tough matchup with the Houston Texans.
