The Patriots have converted $4 million of Rob Gronkowski's $10M option bonus into an immediate payment.
Instead of owing Gronk the full $10 million by the end of the 2015 league year, they'll give him $4 million now and $6 million later. It ensures the obvious -- the Patriots are going to pay the league's best tight end for a long time. Gronk, as healthy as he's been in recent memory, turned 26 three months ago. Aug 4 - 10:22 AM

Rob Gronkowski has enjoyed a fully healthy offseason.

During the previous few offseasons, Gronkowski has been rehabbing back, knee and/or elbow issues. This year, however, he's been able to simply concentrate on reveling in the Summer of Gronk. He'll enter 2015 head-and-shoulders above the rest of the fantasy tight end class and a lock first-round pick. Gronkowski has scored 50 touchdowns in his last 55 games (including playoffs).

Rob Gronkowski caught six balls for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Super Bowl 49 win over the Seahawks.

Kept quiet by SS Kam Chancellor early, Gronk gave New England a 14-7 halftime lead by beating SLB K.J. Wright deep down the right sideline for a 22-yard touchdown catch late in the second quarter. Gronk whipped both Chancellor and Wright for huge catches on a crucial fourth-quarter drive. The 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year, Gronk is a certified touchdown-scoring machine and arguably one of the five most dominant players in football. He's finally healthy and hasn't yet turned 26 years old. We expect Gronk to be a first-round pick in 2015 fantasy drafts.

Associated Press named Rob Gronkowski its 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

Gronkowski was limited to seven games in 2013 due to knee and forearm injuries. He bounced back with an 82/1,124/12 line this season, where he finished as a unanimous All-Pro. Gronkowski received 27 first-place votes, followed by Jeremy Maclin (7), Rolando McClain (7), Chris Harris (3), Justin Forsett (2), and Arian Foster (2). Cardinals LB Larry Foote and Kyle Orton also received a vote.

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane doesn't believe Rob Gronkowski is "that good."

Oh. "He’s OK," Lane conceded. "But he does have a big body, and from what I’ve seen on tape, he don’t like your hands being put on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won’t catch that many balls as he should." We doubt Gronk had ever heard of Lane before today, but he might have something special for him in Super Bowl XLIX. Few teams search for bulletin board material as voraciously as the Pats. Lane has offered up some of the dumbest in recent memory.

Rob Gronkowski caught three passes for 28 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's AFC Championship Game win over the Colts.

The Colts did nothing special to try to stop Gronk, which made it quite odd that he had zero catches at halftime. He did just miss on two end-zone targets, one that was knocked away by Vontae Davis and another that he couldn't get his feet down in-bounds. Of course, Gronk always gets his spike as he caught a five-yard slant from Tom Brady to give the Patriots a 31-7 lead in the fourth quarter. Despite multiple back surgeries, a broken forearm and a torn ACL, Gronk now has an incredible 49 touchdowns in his last 55 games (including playoffs). He's obviously a good bet to spike against the Seahawks in the Feb. 1 Super Bowl.

Rob Gronkowski caught 7-of-13 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in New England's Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

Baltimore sent legions of defenders at New England's mountainous tight end, but it made no difference. As good as ever even though he's just 13 months removed from blowing out his knee, Gronk will be a must play in DFS cash games for conference title week.
Jan 10 - 8:46 PM

The Ravens are expected to cover Rob Gronkowski with FS Will Hill in Saturday's Divisional Round game.

Despite missing the first six games of the season, Hill graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 14 safety and ninth in pass coverage. He was PFF's No. 3 overall safety in 2013 with the Giants. The Ravens have said Gronkowski will draw most of their coverage. Hill will be aided by ILBs Daryl Smith and C.J. Mosley at times, in addition to SS Darian Stewart. Gronk is still the obvious overall TE1 this weekend, but Baltimore was 13th in defending the tight end in 2014.
Jan 9 - 9:38 AM

Rob Gronkowski was named a unanimous 2014 first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.

Gronkowski received 50-of-50 first-team votes as the only unanimous selection. However, if clueless voters could understand the difference between 3-4 defensive end and 4-3 defensive tackle, J.J. Watt also would have been a unanimous selection. Watt received 45 votes as a defensive end and five as a defensive tackle. Both Gronkowski and Watt are legit MVP candidates. The heavy favorite for MVP honors, Aaron Rodgers, was named the All-Pro quarterback. The rest of the squad and every other player that received a vote are at the link below.

Patriots declared TE Rob Gronkowski inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

With the No. 1 seed already locked up, New England is smartly holding Gronk out of a meaningless Week 17 contest with Buffalo. Tim Wright will earn the start in Gronk's place, but he is not a recommended option against the Bills' suffocating pass defense. Buffalo has allowed eight catches for 78 yards TOTAL to tight ends the last five games.

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.

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.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 04:57:00 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.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:54:00 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.
