Patriots | Seattle looking to shut down Gronk

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 09:17:13 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is an offensive weapon that the Seattle Seahawks are focused on shutting down during the Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll thinks his team matches up well against the All-Pro tight end, though, as LBs K.J. Wright and Bruce Irvin are "pretty tall and long" and SS Kam Chancellor is "about as big a strong safety as you can find." The Seahawks will be focused on not allowing Gronkowski and QB Tom Brady to take over the game.

Fantasy Tip: Opposing tight ends have been a weakness for the Seahawks this year, so Gronkowski is basically a no-brainer play this weekend at FantasyScore for a salary of $7,777 (15.55% of cap).

Seahawks | Seattle struggles against TEs

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 10:51:48 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski could cause a problem for the Seattle Seahawks during Super Bowl XLIX, because the Seahawks defense allowed 11 touchdowns to tight ends this season, which was third most in the NFL. Gronkowski led the Patriots in touchdown catches (12) during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has been a great fantasy option for owners this season and should be another good option even though he is facing a tough Seahawks defense. Gronkowski costs $7,777 (15.55% of the cap) on FantasyScore and should be worth the price for owners.

Patriots | Seattle to be physical with Gronk?

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:39:56 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is often a tough matchup for opposing defenses, but Seattle Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane said he doesn't think Gronkowski is "that good." "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls," Lane said. Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Lane could be lined up often against Gronkowski in the slot in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($7,777, 15.55% of cap) will cost you at FantasyScore this weekend, but it's either him or Luke Willson from the Seahawks, basically. You can save money by avoiding Gronk, but it's probably not the smart move.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plays well against Colts

Sat, 17 Jan 2015 15:38:48 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has 17 catches for 297 yards and one touchdown in four career games against the Indianapolis Colts. He has gained 71 yards after contact as well.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk ($7,100; 14.2% of your cap) is unquestionably the best option at the position on FantasyScore this weekend. That means you're going to have to nail your sleepers to get ahead of your competition.

Patriots | Will Hill to cover Rob Gronkowski?

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 10:09:02 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is likely to be covered by Baltimore Ravens FS Will Hill in the divisional round game Saturday, Jan. 10. "It's not just a one-man job, it's a team effort. He's not a slow guy. If you try to play off him, you're just giving him what he needs. If you play up, he has the strength to get through people. He's a beast. He has a lot of aggression," Hill said. Gronkowski has three catches for 45 yards in two previous regular season meetings with the Ravens. However, in the Patriots' one win over the Ravens in the postseason, Gronkowski had five catches for 87 yards on eight targets before hurting his ankle. Baltimore plans on jamming Gronkowski at the line of scrimmage to prevent him from getting into his patterns.

Fantasy Tip: Given the limited tight end options this weekend at FantasyScore, Gronkowski ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is about one of the safest picks you can make for your daily lineups.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski unlikely to play in full

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 07:33:50 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is likely to be removed from the Week 17 game early. Beat writer Mike Reiss believes the team will pull Gronkowski after the offense exhibits a rhythm against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk could play long enough to reach the end zone, but it's quite a risk to take on FantasyScore given his injury history and little incentive to play much.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plays in all snaps

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:21:39 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski played in all 61 of the team's offensive snaps in Week 16 against the New York Jets, showing that he is completely healthy at season's end. TE Tim Wright played in only seven snaps in the first half compared to 25 in the second half with the team going to a faster tempo on offense.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($5,555) may not be the safest play at FantasyScore in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills defense. The Patriots may also have everything locked up for homefield advantage, too, so Gronk could be rested. Be careful here.
