Patriots | Rob Gronkowski playing this year

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 15:32:38 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski announced Tuesday, April 24, that he will be playing in 2018, as expected.

Fantasy Tip: Not a big surprise, but there have been reports throughout the offseason that Gronk could retire. Since he is returning, he should be regarded as the No. 1 fantasy tight end, per usual.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski likely back in 2018

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 13:16:48 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Rob Gronkowski are expected to return to the team in 2018 despite their absences from voluntary workouts this month, per a source with "knowledge of the situation" according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible both men are making their displeasure of the team's decision to remove their trainer from the premises at Gillette Stadium, although neither Brady nor Gronkowski have confirmed that. The Patriots would be wise to target their successors in this week's draft, but the 40-year-old Brady has repeatedly said he hopes to play until he's 45. Gronkowski is more likely to retire sooner given how many injuries he has suffered in his career, but it still seems highly unlikely we've seen the last of him on the gridiron.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely to skip workouts

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 10:31:30 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski indicated that he does not plan to participate in the upcoming voluntary workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski still has not announced if he will play in 2018, but he probably will be on the field next season. He is one of the best fantasy options when he is healthy and likely will be selected in the first three rounds of all fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski still thinking retirement?

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 16:04:11 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski still is considering whether to play the upcoming 2018 season, and a team source said Gronkowski and the Patriots are keeping in touch.

Fantasy Tip: If Gronkowski plays he has to be considered a TE1, one of the best in the league. Still, the Patriots appear to be playing the cards the right way and making sure they have a backup plan.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski leaner

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 07:53:53 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is around 260 pounds, according to a source, which is about five pounds lighter than his playing weight. He's expected to re-gain the weight before camp. Gronkowski has been working with QB Tom Brady's trainer, Alex Guerrero, which stirred the pot with head coach Bill Belichick. At one point early last season, Belichick chastised Gronkowski in front of the players for working with Guerrero, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The friction with Belichick is starting to leak out, and it somewhat explains Gronk's hesitance with playing next year. His physical condition adds traction that he will be back, though. He'll be a high-end TE1 in fantasy.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski expected to stay

Wed, 04 Apr 2018 05:02:27 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski hasn't been involved in trade talks, and the Patriots expect to keep him.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk remains a high-end TE1, but his laundry list of injuries add enough risk to consider some others that are closing the gap.

Patriots | Teams to call about Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 03 Apr 2018 07:05:17 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will have teams calling about acquiring him, according to MMQB's Albert Breer.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably more likely that Gronk stays in New England, but the wear-and-tear scare is harvesting around his fantasy stock. He's still a high-end option, but the gap is closing between him and the field.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski leaning towards playing

Sat, 31 Mar 2018 20:47:04 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is leaning towards playing next season, according to sources close to Gronkowski.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is still an elite fantasy tight end when he is on the field, but the injury concerns aren't going away. The upside is undeniable, but make sure not to reach for him on draft day.

Patriots | Chances increasing Rob Gronkowski is traded

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 08:41:09 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's odds of being traded are increasing, a source friendly with head coach Bill Belichick told the Boston Sports Journal's Greg A. Bedard. "(Belichick) imagines you gone," the source said. "The longer Gronkowski goes without saying he's all in, the chances of him being traded increases."

Fantasy Tip: Gronk hasn't played 16 games since 2011, but most seasons he doesn't have to. The number of injuries is mounting on his soon-to-be 29-year-old body. The tight end position has blossomed enough that, it really isn't a "Gronk or bust" spot anymore. He'll be a high-end TE1 regardless, but one has to wonder if the risk is worth the reward.
