New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee), who said he fully expects to play in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins, will likely wear a brace over his surgically repaired knee, but he doesn't plan on changing the style in which he plays the game.
Fantasy Tip: Gronk could be a bargain for those in traditional leagues if he can stay healthy all year. In daily games for the season opener, it's probably wise to play it safe and go with another option for your tight end, though, until we know he's 100 percent healthy.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (knee) status for Week 1 has not been determined, according to head coach Bill Belichick. "I'm glad that Rob's optimistic about this situation," Belichick said. "We'll go through the week of practice and take a look at everything, everybody, and see where everybody's at and try to do what we feel like is best for the team. With all due respect to Rob -- I'm glad he feels the way he does -- but, in the end, we'll have to make the decision we feel like is best for the team and we'll do that as we go through the week."
Fantasy Tip: This could be Belichick being cautious with the team's plans for Week 1, but it is worth monitoring Gronkowski's practice status throughout the rest of the week. If Gronk is healthy and active in Week 1, he should be started.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk is still worth starting in most traditional leagues, but his daily-game value takes a hit. For a predetermined, part-time workload, he probably isn't worth the high-end cost yet. We could see more out of Julian Edelman and Shane Vereen in the opener.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski should be one of the main options in the team's passing game and should be started in all fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.
