Rob Gronkowski (knee) is practicing in full for Week 5.
It's the first time Gronkowski hasn't been listed as limited all season. Gronk played 31-of-50 snaps (62 percent) in Monday night's loss. The fact that the Patriots are no longer limiting him in practice suggests he's close to returning to an every-down role. Oct 1 - 7:11 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught two passes for 31 yards and one touchdown in the Patriots' Week 4 loss to the Chiefs on Monday night.

Gronkowski was targeted just three times, and was sitting on one catch for 18 yards for much of the night before reeling in a 13-yard touchdown from Jimmy Garoppolo late in the fourth quarter of this 41-14 blowout. While it was a bad night all around for the Patriots, it was at least encouraging to see Gronkowski playing a large chunk of the snaps. His usage rate continues to rise as he works his way back from knee surgery. But it remains clear that Gronk isn't 100 percent or back to his normal self. He's staying afloat fantasy-wise by scoring touchdowns. After four games, Gronk is on pace for a 52-588-12 receiving line. Look for him to easily top those catch and yards totals by season's end.

Rob Gronkowski (knee) is probable for Week 4.

Gronkowski is on track for his biggest workload of the season on Monday night against the Chiefs. He's Rotoworld's No. 2 tight end this week.
Sep 27 - 4:17 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) remained limited in Friday's practice.

Gronkowski should see his biggest workload of the season on Monday night after playing on 57.5 percent of snaps in Week 3. Rotoworld ranks Gronk as the No. 2 overall tight end against the Chiefs.
Sep 26 - 5:48 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) was "limited" in Thursday's practice.

As he's been every week this season. Speaking Wednesday, Gronk said he "doesn't feel limited at all," and is ready for a bigger role on offense. Gronk played a season-high 57.5 percent of the Pats' snaps in Week 3, and should see that number go up on Monday Night Football against the Chiefs. He's Rotoworld's No. 2 tight end for Week 4.
Sep 25 - 5:51 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) said he doesn't "feel limited at all" and is ready for more responsibility.

Gronkowski played a season-high 57.5 percent of the snaps in Week 3, but hasn't topped four catches or 44 yards yet this season. The good news is that his rebuilt knee feels good and he's sustained no other complications. "It's just progressing every week but it's getting to the point where we can start rolling more and more," he said. With the Patriots offense scuffling, it about time to unleash the Gronk. Owners should be holding on tight.

Rob Gronkowski (knee) played on 42-of-73 snaps in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

It's 57.5 percent, up from the 43.1 percent Gronkowski had played through the first two weeks. Remember that Gronk wasn't a full-time player last season until five games after coming back from forearm surgery. If anyone is selling, we're buying Gronk as he rounds into form.

Rob Gronkowski had three catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Raiders.

Gronkowski wasn't a major part of the offense, but was more involved than the previous two weeks. His touchdown came on a six-yard pass from Tom Brady. Gronkowski should have had another score, but dropped a pass in the end zone. He should continue to play more snaps as he works himself back from knee surgery. Gronkowski is locked in as a high-end TE1.
Sep 21 - 5:11 PM

The Boston Globe's Erik Frenz says Rob Gronkowski (probable, knee) "probably" isn't ready to be a full-time player yet.

Gronk has only played 66-of-153 offensive snaps for the Patriots this season. He is nowhere year a 100-percent player right now, and likely will remain a part timer for at least the next several weeks. Despite the limited snaps, Gronk's scoring prowess makes him a high-end tight end every week.
Sep 20 - 9:33 AM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) is listed as probable for Week 3.

Gronkowski could see his snaps increase this week after being held to four catches for 32 yards against the Vikings. He's Rotoworld's No. 3 tight end.
Sep 19 - 4:59 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) remained limited on Thursday.

Gronk is heading toward an entire year of "limited" tags. He's Rotoworld's No. 3 tight end for Week 3.
Sep 18 - 5:31 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited on Wednesday.

Gronkowski has been limited in practice throughout the first two weeks. He'll likely continue to be on a snap count in Week 3, but is a strong bet to score a touchdown against the Raiders.
Sep 17 - 6:47 PM

Rob Gronkowski didn't play every snap until his fifth game back last season.

Gronkowski played on just 28-of-67 snaps Sunday as the Patriots coasted to a 30-7 win at Minnesota. This comes on the heels of a 38-of-86 Week 1 snap count. It's a reminder that he's still rounding into form just like last season, although it's worth noting that a knee reconstruction is far different than the elbow issue he battled in 2013. Regardless, Gronk will be an excellent bet to score a touchdown in a home game against the Raiders Week 3.

Rob Gronkowski had four catches for 32 yards against the Vikings Week 2.

Gronkowski was limited to only 27 snaps as the Patriots simply did not need him. He was more involved in the second half, suggesting he could have played a much bigger role if needed. Gronk will be a locked-in TE1 when the Patriots play the Raiders in their home opener next week.
Sep 14 - 4:25 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) is listed as probable for Week 2.

It's an upgrade from last week, when Gronk was listed as questionable. Look for Gronkowski's snaps and usage to rise as games move forward.
