The Boston Globe's Ben Volin believes Rob Gronkowski will receive "little-to-no playing time" in the Patriots' season finale against the Bills.
With nothing on the line Week 17, it makes little sense for the Patriots to play their dynamic but oft-injured tight end. Gronkowski could very well put up a goose egg Week 17, making him unplayable in both seasonal and daily formats. Tim Wright will likely see a bump in snaps with Gronk limited, but would be a poor option against the Bills' suffocating pass defense. Dec 27 - 10:01 AM

Rob Gronkowski played on every offensive snap in Week 16, the first time he's done that this season.

It puts a bow on a remarkable rehab off Gronk's ACL and MCL reconstruction 12 months ago. Proving more beast than human, he's played in every single game this season and has posted an 82-1,124-12 line. Gronkowski is fantasy's No. 1 scoring tight end by a whopping margin over No. 2 Antonio Gates and No. 3 Jimmy Graham. His status for Week 17 could depend on the result of Monday Night Football. If the Bengals can upset the Broncos, the Patriots clinch the AFC's No. 1 seed.

Rob Gronkowski caught 6-of-10 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

Gronk is now up to 82/1,124/12 on the season. With one game to go, all three totals are the second best of his five-year career. It's a remarkable achievement for a player who tore his ACL last December.
Dec 21 - 4:57 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 3-of-8 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in New England's Week 15 rout of the Dolphins.

Gronk's 27-yard score put the Pats ahead 31-13. It was a classic seam number. He nearly scored again two minutes later, but got tackled down at the six-yard line after making a 35-yard catch. Gronk is the owner of an elite 76/1,093/11 line with two games to go.
Dec 14 - 4:54 PM

Rob Gronkowski had eight catches for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 14 win over the Chargers.

Gronkowski beat Chargers CB Brandon Flowers for a 14-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He tied Julian Edelman with a team-high eight catches and finished with 11 targets. Gronk has at least 70 yards or a touchdown in six straight games. He'll remain the No. 1 fantasy tight end play in Week 15.
Dec 8 - 12:45 AM

Rob Gronkowski caught 7-of-12 targets for 98 yards in New England's Week 13 loss to the Packers.

Gronk was thisclose to a 20-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, but couldn't quite complete what would have been a phenomenal catch in the end zone. Amazingly, Gronk has now been held without a score in back-to-back games. Look for that to change in Week 14 against the Chargers. With 75 percent of the season in the books, Gronk is on pace for an elite 87/1,213/12.
Nov 30 - 7:43 PM

Rob Gronkowski secured 5-of-10 targets for 78 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.

Gronkowski's receiving line was affected by the Patriots' significantly increased usage of No. 2 tight end Tim Wright, who was a near-full-time player in Sunday's game against Detroit. Wright scored first-half touchdowns from 4 and 8 yards out, TDs that would normally go to Gronk. Tom Brady attempted a third-quarter red-zone pass for Gronkowski, but had it picked off by Lions S James Ihedigbo. Expect Gronkowski to rebound when the Patriots travel to Lambeau for Week 13.
Nov 23 - 4:42 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught four passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 11 win over the Colts.

Gronkowski was held in check for most of the night before scoring late in the fourth quarter. He broke multiple tackles and hurdled over a defender into the end-zone to secure his fifth touchdown in the last three games. Gronkowski was targeted five times, behind only Julian Edelman. He's now up to 53 catches, 734 yards, and nine touchdowns this season. Gronk will have a matchup with the Lions in Week 12.
Nov 17 - 1:08 AM

Rob Gronkowski caught 9-of-10 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in New England's Week 9 rout of the Broncos.

Another week, another Gronk domination. It was also another year, another low hit from S T.J. Ward, though Gronk survived this one to post his second straight 100-yard afternoon, and third in five games. Gronk is now up to 49/663/8, and suddenly running away with TE1 overall status. He gets the Pats' Week 10 bye to rest up before returning against the Colts in Week 11.
Nov 2 - 8:21 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 9-of-9 targets for 149 yards and three touchdowns in New England's Week 8 rout of the Bears.

No more questions: Gronk is back. Gronk simply humiliated the Bears, catching passes in traffic and dragging tacklers when he wasn't running away from them. Gronk's first two scores were paint-by-numbers red-zone dominance, but it was his third that will lead the highlight reel. After digging out a low bullet from Tom Brady, Gronk made Bears S Ryan Mundy look like a high schooler, tossing him aside before rumbling 36 yards to the end zone. Only dehydration could slow Gronk down, as he sat out the majority of the second half. It didn't matter, as Gronk helped stake the Pats to a 38-7 halftime lead. Once again the real and true Gronk, Rob is a strong bet to be fantasy football's No. 1 tight end moving forward.
Oct 26 - 4:17 PM

Rob Gronkowski played a season-high 93 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps in Week 7.

He was in on 53 of New England's 57 downs. The Jets double and triple teamed Gronk on red-zone plays, preventing him from scoring a touchdown. He did look as spry as he has all year, running downfield routes and continuing to dominate after the catch over the middle. The Patriots will face the Bears in Week 8.
Oct 17 - 3:18 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-10 targets for 68 yards in New England's Week 7 win over the Jets.

Fantasy owners will lament Gronk getting held out of the end zone for the second-consecutive week, but the good news is that he looked as fluid as he has all season. Gronk looks like a completely different player than the lumbering shell of his former self that he was in Week 1. He was also a near every-down component this evening, while the 10-target effort was his third in seven games. Averaging 87 yards over his past three starts, Gronk is heading in the right direction any way you slice it. He'll be a top-three tight end for Week 8 against the Bears.
Oct 17 - 12:10 AM

Tom Brady said Rob Gronkowski is "absolutely" back.

Gronk may never get back to every-snap status he had before blowing out his knee, but his effectiveness continues to grow. Over the last two weeks, he's played on 128-of-162 snaps (79.0 percent), totaling a 13-194-1 line on 20 targets. Gronkowski is locked and loaded as a weekly top-three tight end the rest of the season.

Oct 13 - 10:55 AM

Rob Gronkowski had seven catches for 95 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Bills.

He was targeted nine times, behind only Julian Edelman. Gronkowski took advantage of being matched up with Bills CB/S Corey Graham over the middle of the field. He didn't get any red-zone looks, but had a touchdown called back by a holding penalty. Gronkowski briefly left in the third quarter with an elbow injury. He was a near every-down player and appeared as healthy as he's been all season. Gronk will remain a top-three option against the Jets in Week 7.
Oct 12 - 5:47 PM

Rob Gronkowski is not listed on the Week 6 injury report.

Gronkowski played a season-high 69-of-87 snaps in Sunday night's win over the Bengals. He resumed practicing in full last week and his knee injury is no longer a concern. Gronkowski will be a top-three fantasy option in Week 6 against Buffalo.
