Patriots | Rob Gronkowski takes the field

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:09:52 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski made his first appearance in a preseason game since 2012, playing 15 of the first 17 offensive snaps but failing to make a catch against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Don't worry about Gronkowski being held without a catch. As long as he is healthy heading into the season, he is the top fantasy option at his position.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely will sit out

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 14:48:08 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski probably will not play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has struggled with injuries over the last few years and probably will not play until the regular season. He is a risky option because of his injury history but is a No. 1 tight end when he is healthy.

Patriots | Key Patriots to sit Thursday

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 13:56:20 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Brandin Cooks are not expected to play in the Patriots' first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 10, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a shock to any. Playing stars simply isn't worth the risk early on in the preseason. This will have no impact on their respective fantasy values. As you were.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski using Tom Brady's trainer

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 05:47:47 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has hired QB Tom Brady's personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, and has adopted Brady's workout and diet plan. "I look at (Brady) and he turns 40 tomorrow and he runs around like he's younger than me. So it's pretty obvious right there," Gronkowski said after practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, while acknowledging his body already feels different.

Fantasy Tip: The article also suggests that the team could adjust the high-risk seam routes that Gronk and Brady have made their bread and butter. Gronk has had several back surgeries, forearm surgeries and reconstructive knee surgery at 28. The clock could be ticking on his stranglehold as the No. 1 tight end in fantasy, but this light bulb going off in him is a good sign for his longevity.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski not limited

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 09:02:08 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has no limitations as training camp opens, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk has the most upside at the position in fantasy, but he also carries enormous injury risk. Equip yourself with an upside pick as his backup if you make the leap.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski a full participant

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 07:23:06 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been a full participant in practice and hasn't missed a practice this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: That's a great sign for Gronk, but the number of injuries is piling up on his 28-year-old body. The tight end fray is starting to catch up to him, and the risk associated with taking him so high in drafts may not be worth it anymore. The team is also loaded with receivers and running backs that catch the ball. He's still an elite TE1, if not still the best at the position, but the risk is glaring.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski has no restrictions

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 10:29:29 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is "feeling great" after several weeks on the field and in the gym. He has practiced without restriction.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is a huge liability with as much upside in fantasy as the No. 1 tight end. He'll cost a pretty penny in what is a fairly deep but also precarious tight end class.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski looks like old self

Fri, 26 May 2017 18:46:46 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been a full participant in drills during voluntary workouts, and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Gronkowski has been "involved in everything" and "looks like Gronk."

Fantasy Tip: Despite the injury history, Gronkowski still deserves to be the first tight end off the board in drafts as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. His upside is unmatched at the position.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski cleared to take field

Thu, 25 May 2017 12:12:05 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has progressed well enough that he has been cleared to take the field for organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski's injury history is well-documented, but he remains the best at his position. It appears he's on track to be ready to play by Week 1, so he should continue to be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts.

Patriots | Restructured deal for Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 23 May 2017 14:35:41 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski restructured his deal for 2017 and has a chance to become the highest paid tight end in the league. The deal can boost his salary from $5.25 million to $10.75 million.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is the best tight end in the NFL, so it makes sense that he'd be the highest paid at the position. He should be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts, but there is the injury risk as he has missed 22 games in his seven-year career.
