Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited in practice

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 14:49:34 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Strangely, this comes after Gronkowski said he doesn't feel limited at all. Even with the limitation in practice, he should still be able to play against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. His price of $7,500 on FantasyScore could be worth the investment in a favorable matchup.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski not limited

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 05:58:57 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) said he doesn't feel limited at all and is ready for more responsibility after reduced work in his first three games. Gronkowski has likely been on a pitch count in the first halves of games to save him for the second half. He played more than 50 percent of the snaps for the first time this season in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($7,500; 15% of your FantasyScore cap) has a good matchup against KC this weekend and could start to resemble the fantasy force that he has been in recent years.

Patriots | Tom Brady rushed to make throws

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:09:00 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady didn't try to get deeper into his progressions in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders until late in the second half. There were only two times when Brady looked past his first read and wasn't under serious pressure from the Raiders' pass rush. On both of those instances, Brady completed a pass to WR Julian Edelman. Brady has been getting hit hard or pressured when looking through his progressions deeper down the field, which is why Edelman and TE Rob Gronkowski are being targeted more - they are his best and most consistent receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Are Brady's glory days behind him? That's probably the case, but he can still be productive in the right matchups. However, beyond Edelman and Gronkowski, his other receiving options will be weak flex plays until the offensive line can give Brady more time to look through all of his downfield options.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski's usage increasing

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 17:28:15 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) played a season-high 42 snaps in Week 3, and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said a further increase in playing time is coming. "Rob has done the things we have asked him to do," McDaniels said. "He has been fine in terms of his assignments and his conditioning. But we just have to try to add to it as we go throughout the course of the year."

Fantasy Tip: Even while being eased back into the mix, Gronkowski has remained a major factor in the red zone. His snap count should only increase as the year goes on, boosting his reception and yardage totals and his fantasy value. Gronkowski will take up 15% of the cap at FantasyScore ($7,500) in Week 4, and with the Patriots facing a Kansas City defense that has allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in three games, he could be worth the price.
