Fantasy Tip: Grab Martellus Bennett where available. He should be a TE1 the rest of the way.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett missed practice on Wednesday, but this news indicates he'll be good to go for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, there will be nothing preventing Bennett from serving as a TE1 on a weekly basis to close out the 2016 season. He should be in all lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has come on in recent weeks to become a factor in New England's high-octane offense, so consider him in the FLEX conversation. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Hogan has a better chance at sustaining that value.

New England Patriots Ss Nate Ebner (concussion), Jordan Richards (knee) and DT Woodrow Hamilton (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 1. Meanwhile, WR Matthew Slater (foot) and DE Trey Flowers (shin) were limited.
Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:16:02 -0800
Fantasy Tip: He'll be fine for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Edelman's already-high stock gets a slight boost, as he may see even more looks than usual. He's definitely a WR1.

Fantasy Tip: Brady missed practice on Wednesday, but this session should ensure he suits up on Sunday versus the Rams. As is always the case, the future Hall-of-Famer will be one of the top QB1 options on the board.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) suffered a herniated disc during the team's Week 13 game and will need to undergo surgery Friday, Dec. 2, according to a source. There is no timetable for his return.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski likely will miss the rest of the season because of the injury. Fantasy owners will need to find other options to use in their starting lineups and can drop Gronkowski if they need the roster space. Martellus Bennett should have a bigger role in the Patriots' passing game and will be a No. 1 tight end moving forward.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was unable to attend an event Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Boston Children's Hospital due to the recommendation of the team's medical staff, as he continues to recover from a back injury. He has been cleared to attend a separate event later in the week, however.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Gronk will be able to practice in full at any point this week, but being cleared for an outside event after previous restrictions sounds like a step forward. It will be a game-time decision, most likely, for the stud fantasy option who has a propensity for injury.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 21:57:05 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Edelman is expected to be ready to face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13 barring any setbacks. He is a stud in PPR fantasy formats for his high rate of catches, as he is working on a three-game streak with at least seven grabs and 77 yards.

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 17:22:03 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Hogan was able to play in Week 12 despite the injury and should have a solid chance to play this week. He has posted at least 70 yards in two of the last three games and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 17:14:32 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bennett probably is taking things slow this week, but owners should check on the status later in the week. Bennett has struggled over the last few weeks and will face a Los Angeles Rams defense that plays well against tight ends. Owners may want to look for other options to use and keep Bennett on the bench this week.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 11:16:29 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Edelman probably will return to practice at some point this week and should be able to play in Week 13. He has posted three straight solid games with at least seven catches and at least 77 yards in all three games. Edelman should be a fine No. 2 receiver in a majority of fantasy leagues.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 11:13:53 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski suffered a back injury early in the team's Week 12 game and was not able to return, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He may be limited if he is active this week, so owners may want to look at healthier options if Gronkowski does not practice this week.
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 11:10:32 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Brady is resting his injured knee but should be able to play in Week 13. He has thrown for at least 280 yards in each of his last four games and has six touchdowns in the last two games. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.
