Patriots | Rob Gronkowski was already mulling future

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 18:37:43 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had been thinking about retirement "long before" the loss in Super Bowl LII, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: This is potentially bad news for anyone hoping Gronkowski was just having an emotional response to the Super Bowl loss. His future remains up in the air at this point, but he would remain the top fantasy tight end if he does play in 2018. The uncertainty could make him a buy-low candidate in dynasty leagues.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski's retirement thoughts 'real'

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 20:53:33 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's thoughts about retirement ever since the club's loss in Super Bowl 52 on Sunday, Feb. 4, against the Philadelphia Eagles are "real," according to Albert Breer of SI.com. Gronkowski has been responsible with his finances, putting away most of his football money and living largely off his endorsement cash, and he's taken an "absolute beating" physically.

Fantasy Tip: While many would be shocked to see Gronk leave the game while still in his prime, he certainly wouldn't be the first superstar-caliber player to opt for retirement at such a golden point in his career, with Calvin Johnson and Patrick Willis being two recent examples. He has plenty of time to think about it, though, with the offseason only just getting started. The 28-year-old would remain the league's No. 1 tight end if he decides to keep playing.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski tie record

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 21:36:57 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Rob Gronkowski have now connected for 12 touchdown passes in playoff games after Brady hooked up with Gronkowski twice in Super Bowl 52 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Feb. 4. That ties them up with retired QB Joe Montana and WR Jerry Rice for the most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver duo in NFL postseason history.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise here given New England's prolific history in the playoffs. Brady has already said he'll be back in 2018 and should retain his spot at the top of the quarterback food chain. Gronkowski is in the same boat as it regards NFL tight ends going into next season.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski considering retirement?

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 20:43:10 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he is going to take a look at his future, following a 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. "I'm going to sit down the next couple of weeks, see where I'm at," Gronkowski said.

Fantasy Tip: The sting of a tough loss could have played a role in his comments, but it is a situation worth monitoring in the coming weeks. Gronkowski has dealt with a variety of injuries over his career, but when he's on the field, he's the top tight end in the game.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski could be cleared Wednesday

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 05:14:17 -0800

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion) is hoping to be cleared from the concussion protocol Wednesday, Jan. 31. He re-iterated he will play in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is the best tight end left in playoff pools, but Zach Ertz isn't too far behind to select at a reduced salary in DFS. Gronkowski is expected to see a lot of attention from the Philadelphia Eagles' defense, and the injury risk could make Ertz an attractive play.

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 09:30:54 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion) was present at the start of practice Saturday, Jan. 27, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: There was no word on how active he was, but obviously this is the news fans and fantasy owners want to hear more than a week away from the Super Bowl. Stil, Gronkowski is likely to be listed as questionable on the injury report next week and remains in the concussion protocol for now. At this rate, he should be cleared to play sometime during the middle of next week.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski's availability for Super Bowl LII will be determined by his practice participation next week. He is a No. 1 fantasy tight end as long as he is healthy and should be an early-round pick in drafts next season.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski absent Friday

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 09:53:51 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion) was absent from the media portion of practice Friday, Jan. 26.

Fantasy Tip: The belief is Gronkowski will play in the Super Bowl. In any lingering fantasy contests, he is an obvious starter if on the field. Long term, Gronk is a fantasy liability, due to injuries, as the top player at his position, though he's a fine risk-reward gamble.

Patriots | 'Overall feel' is Rob Gronkowski will play

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 17:24:52 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion) appears to be on track to play in Super Bowl 52 on Sunday, Feb. 4, against the Philadelphia Eagles, as the "overall feel" in the locker room is that he'll be in the lineup when the game kicks off, according to Dianna Russini of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: While Gronkowski hasn't returned to practice yet since sustaining a concussion in the team's AFC Championship victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend, he still has more than enough time to pass protocol in order to ensure he'll be active on Super Bowl Sunday. Gronk had actually scored a touchdown in his previous six postseason contests before having to depart early in the last one, so look for him to log some notable stats opposite Philadelphia.

Fantasy Tip: Luckily for Gronk he has an additional week to pass the NFL's concussion protocol.

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 15:21:32 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (concussion) official status will be unclear for a couple more days, but there is some optimism regarding his availability for the Super Bowl, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk has a couple of weeks to pass the concussion protocol as opposed to the usual one week or less. Obviously he's a vital part of New England's offense and will play a pivotal role in the Patriots' game plan if he is available. He's the best tight end in football when healthy and should be drafted as such next season.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a tough matchup on paper, Gronkowski is still head and shoulders above any other tight end available this weekend. If you are playing DFS contests, Gronkowski should be worth the price tag.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski finished with nine receptions for a game-high 168 yards on 13 targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his first game since serving a one-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was only off for one week and the suspension appears to have rejuvenated him like a late-season bye week. That's not what the rest of the NFL wanted to see.

Patriots | Danny Amendola to step up in Week 14?

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 19:39:57 -0800

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola could pick up the slack with TE Rob Gronkowski suspended for the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. When Gronkowski was sidelined in Week 5, Amendola finished with eight catches for 77 yards on a season-high 55 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola should see an uptick in snaps with Gronkowski sidelined, but he is far from a lock to replicate his Week 5 numbers. If you are going to gamble on him in Week 14, it should probably be in DFS formats.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski's suspension stands

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 14:44:40 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Not a surprising outcome. The only real surprise is that Gronk's suspension wasn't longer. In Gronk's absence, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister will man the tight end position, but neither is a legitimate fantasy starting option.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski suspended for one game

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 12:29:47 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has been suspended one game for a hit on Buffalo Bills CB Tre'Davious White (concussion) last week. Gronkowski will appeal the suspension.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't a big surprise to anyone who saw the vicious hit. Jacob Hollister now becomes a sleeper as Gronk's replacement, with Dwayne Allen also demanding attention. That being said, neither deserves to be started. Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan (if he plays) will see more targets, along with any of New England's trio of running backs.

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 13:55:56 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski rolled up nine receptions for a season-high 147 yards on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners might be a bit disappointed about the lack of touchdowns, but it's his second consecutive 20-point performance in PPR leagues, which is quite timely at this juncture of the fantasy schedule. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 14 at Miami on Monday night.

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 19:31:42 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski faces the Buffalo Bills on the road in Week 13, and in six games in Buffalo, he has 35 catches for 583 yards and seven touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is always a must-start TE1 when he is healthy, and his strong history of success in Buffalo could make him worth paying up for in DFS formats, as well.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski sets franchise record

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 20:00:51 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski recorded his 16th game with multiple touchdown receptions in the team's Week 12 affair Sunday, Nov. 26, versus the Miami Dolphins, breaking the club record that was previously held by retired WR Randy Moss.

Fantasy Tip: For the season, Gronk now has seven touchdown catches, putting him on pace to register his sixth season with 10 or more touchdowns. Remarkably, the only times he didn't accomplish this feat were when he missed extensive time due to injury. As long as he stays healthy, Gronk continues to prove year in and year out that he's the TE1 to own in pro football.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski finished with five receptions for 82 yards and two touchdowns on a team-high eight targets in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk was a little under the weather this week, missing parts of practice, but the illness apparently didn't sap his strength. He posted his second multi-score game of the season and his best yardage total since Week 6 against the Jets.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) told reporters Friday, Nov. 24, he will be ready to play in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is coming off a disappointing fantasy effort in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders, but he'll get another opportunity to remind owners why he's considered the best tight end in the game in another plus-matchup. He remains an elite TE1 play in all formats.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski under the weather

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:31:53 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, due to illness.

Fantasy Tip: Apparently Gronk is under the weather, so he has a few days to get right. Of course, last week Sterling Shepard was questionable due to illness, which turned out to be migraines, and he was inactive. Gronk isn't out of the woods yet, but there are no reports to suggest this is anything more than just a cold.
