Patriots | No surgery for Rob Gronkowski

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:07:07 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) did not require surgery on his knee or back, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The injuries didn't seem to impact Gronk too badly, at least in the playoffs. He should be fine for offseason activities since there's no surgery to recover from. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks or new ailments over the next few months, he'll be the top fantasy tight end to target next season.

Panthers | Greg Olsen excels on deep passes

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 10:25:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has 22 receptions on passes thrown between 15 and 30 yards downfield in 2015 (including playoffs), the most since New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and former New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham each had 21 in 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was 3-for-3 on such throws in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos, so Olsen could be primed for a huge day in Super Bowl 50, especially since the Broncos' safeties (T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart) are both battling lower-body injuries. Olsen could easily be the most productive skill-position player on either side on Super Sunday.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski big in loss

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 16:06:46 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski finished with eight catches for a game-high 144 yards and a touchdown in a 20-18 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski's big game wasn't enough to propel the Patriots to the Super Bowl, but he once again showed why he is the unquestioned top fantasy tight end in any format. His status won't change in 2016.

Patriots | Three key Patriots active Sunday

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 10:48:37 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) are all officially active for the AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: There was really no doubt that these three would play despite their questionable tags. New England's passing game could be utilized early and often against the Broncos; Edelman ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) and Gronk ($8,000, 16.0%) have more upside, but Amendola ($6,100, 12.2%) is also worth a look if you're rostering a FantasyScore playoff team.

Patriots | Three Pats questionable

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:51:57 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) were limited in practice all week and are questionable to face the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: All three players will suit up this weekend and could all have a big impact in the passing game. Amendola ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) might be overlooked by most and could thrive with Denver paying more attention to Edelman ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) and Gronkowski ($8,000, 16.0% of cap). It's hard not to like both Edelman and Gronk when they're healthy.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski streaking in playoffs

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 21:16:52 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's eight postseason touchdowns are a record for a tight end, and he has caught a touchdown in four straight postseason games.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) is the unquestioned top tight end option at FantasysScore, and you run a big risk if you decide to fade him.

Patriots | Three Patriots limited

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 14:26:41 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) were all limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: All three players are acceptable picks on FantasyScore this weekend, with Amendola ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) being more of a sleeper of flex play. Gronk ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) has excellent history against the Denver Broncos and is worth paying up for.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski has owned Denver

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 16:12:22 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has 40 catches for 516 yards and six touchdowns in six games against the Denver Broncos going back to 2011, including six catches for 88 yards and a score in Week 12 this year.

Fantasy Tip: It's safe to say that Gronk ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) enjoys playing against the Broncos, and they'll have their hands full trying to stop him as well as Julian Edelman. Denver had a weakness against tight ends this year despite being the top passing defense in the league, so Gronkowski is worth his high FantasyScore price.

Patriots | Three Patriots limited

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 14:53:00 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) were all limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Fantasy Tip: All three players will be fine for the AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos. Both Amendola ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) and Edelman ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) didn't face Denver in the earlier matchup this year, but both are acceptable daily plays even against a tough Broncos defense. Gronk ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) had a nice game against Denver before being hurt in Week 12, and tight ends have been a thorn in the Broncos' side.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski good after contact

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 09:15:47 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has totaled 1,198 receiving yards after first contact since first joining the league in 2010 and including the playoffs, which is the most of any player in the NFL during that span, according to ESPN Stats and Information. He has averaged 4.0 yards after first contact this year, becoming the first player to do so in a season in seven years that ESPN Stats and Information has measured the statistic. Gronkowski had two touchdowns in the divisional round, and his eight postseason touchdowns are the most in history by a tight end.

Fantasy Tip: Well folks, that's why Gronk is the premier tight end in the league and one of the best of all time. He had 88 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos in Week 12, and there's no reason to think he won't put up good numbers yet again in the AFC Championship. Defending tight ends was one of the few weaknesses of this top defensive unit this year.
