Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plays every snap

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 11:27:27 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was on the field for all 57 offensive snaps in the team's Week 13 game. It is first time he has played every snap since he underwent surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski looks to be completely recovered from his torn ACL and has been one of the top fantasy tight ends since returning. Gronkowski should be a starting option every week no matter the matchup.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski on hot streak

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 11:44:38 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is averaging over 100 yards and one touchdown per game over the last month. QB Tom Brady has shown so much confidence in Gronkowski that he threw to a covered Gronkowski near the goal line for a touchdown in Week 8 instead of an open WR Julian Edelman. Brady has a 129.1 passer rating over the last month with Gronkowski on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski looks to be fully healthy and is a great starting option in all leagues no matter the matchup. Gronkowski has a price of $7,400 on FantasyScore and is a good option if owners are willing to pay the price.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski left game early

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 13:12:04 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (dehydration) left the game early Week 8 because of dehydration and did not return.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski probably was taken out of the game as a precaution since the Patriots were up comfortably in the game. Owners can watch for an update in the next day or so, but he should be able to play in Week 9.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski nearly goes distance

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:57:38 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski played 53 of his team's 57 offensive snaps in the Week 7 game against the New York Jets Thursday, Oct. 18. It was the first time all season he has played over 90 percent of the snaps in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski continues to look 100 percent, and he has re-emerged as a must-start each week like during his pre-injury days. With his history, there will always be a concern for injury, but the team doesn't seem to feel he needs training wheels any longer, and that should make fantasy owners smile.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski back to full strength?

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 11:08:11 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) is back in full force, according to QB Tom Brady. Gronkowski played limited snaps in the first four weeks while recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, but he has emerged in the last few weeks. He had six catches for 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 and caught seven passes for 94 yards in Week 6. Gronkowski took some big hits and showed added strength in the game against the Buffalo Bills. "He's a great option out there," Brady said. "So if they don't cover him, he usually gets it. If they put extra guys on him then it frees everybody else up. He's tough to stop. You put a safety on him, he's got size. You put a linebacker on him, he's got speed. He's been that way since he got into the NFL."

Fantasy Tip: After the last two weeks, Gronk's price has risen at FantasyScore to $6,800 (13.6% of cap) heading into Thursday's matchup against the New York Jets. He won't be cheap anymore, but the chances are better that he will deliver solid production.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski fights through pain

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 14:26:12 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) fought through in a very physical game in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills. He was injured in the third quarter, and assisted to the sidelines by trainers, but was able to return. He also had his forearm brace replaced during the game. He finished with seven receptions for 94 yards, and also had a touchdown negated by penalty.

Fantasy Tip: After the game, Tom Brady declared that Gronk is back. Fantasy owners are certainly glad to see that, although he might not last long if he takes the kind of beating he did in Sunday's victory.

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:04:20 -0700

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 14:20:31 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) is not on the injury report for the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is coming off a breakout game in Week 5 and could be more involved in the passing game moving forward. Gronkowski costs $6,500 on FantasyScore and is a good starting option if owners are comfortable with the price.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski with bigger workload

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 15:17:20 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski played 66 of 84 offensive snaps in Week 5, which was a season high. His previous high for snaps was 42 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk caught six passes (11 targets) for his first 100-yard receiving game and added a touchdown, his fourth in five games. Now that Gronkowski is returning to full health, he should be involved more in the offense. He'll be a strong play in most weeks.
