Rob Gronkowski has lost his appeal of his one-game suspension, and will be out for Week 14.
Gronk can return for Week 15 against the Steelers. With Martellus Bennett (shoulder) on injured reserve, the Patriots will roll with Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister against the Dolphins on Monday Night Football. Neither will be a recommended fantasy option for owners left in a lurch for the first week of the playoffs. Arizona's Ricky Seals-Jones and Houston's Stephen Anderson are worth looking into if you're suddenly in a pinch. Dec 5 - 5:24 PM

NFL suspended Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski one game for violating the league's player-safety policy.

It's the expected, and deserved, outcome after Gronk's illegal Sunday hit left Bills CB Tre'Davious White with a concussion. Gronk was arguably lucky to escape with only a one-game ban. Although both Gronk and coach Bill Belichick expressed remorse after the game, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Gronk will appeal the suspension. If it's unsuccessful, he will miss next Monday's game against the Dolphins, or as fantasy owners call it, the first week of the playoffs. Gronk can return for Week 15 against the Steelers. Dwayne Allen will get the start in Gronk's absence, but won't be more than a wheezing TE2 for fantasy purposes.
Dec 4 - 3:20 PM

The NFL hopes to decide by Monday if Rob Gronkowski will be suspended for his illegal hit on Bills CB Tre'Davious White.

The NFL usually decides by close of business on Monday. We wouldn't expect any different this time around. Gronk is in real danger of at least a one-game ban after his vicious, unnecessary hit concussed White. He will then likely appeal. Fantasy owners need to be ready for the possibility of Gronk missing Week 14.
Dec 4 - 1:46 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 9-of-11 targets for 147 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Bills.

Facing New England for the first time as head coach, Sean McDermott's defense was leaving Gronk literally wide open, especially in the second half. Tom Brady seemed to be looking Gronk's way every other pass after the break. That included on Brady's fourth quarter interception, a play on which Gronk thought he was held by Tre'Davious White. He retaliated with a vicious cheap shot, ramming an unsuspecting White from behind as he lay on the ground. Gronk drew a penalty, his fourth of the game, and appeared to concuss White. It's possible he's suspended for Week 14. Fantasy owners will need to monitor the situation throughout the week.
Dec 3 - 4:05 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-8 targets for 82 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Amid talk the Patriots had put Gronkowski in "bubble wrap," he was immediately unleashed for a monster game against a Dolphins defense that has been gashed by tight ends all season. Despite the popular opinion after two slow games, Gronkowski's role in the white-hot Patriots offense hasn't been scaled back at all. He'll remain the overall TE1 play when the Pats face Buffalo next.
Nov 26 - 4:48 PM

Rob Gronkowski (illness) was removed from the Week 12 injury report.

Gronkowski didn't get in much practice time, but his status was never in doubt. After getting held to three catches last week, Gronkowski should rebound in a matchup with Miami.
Nov 24 - 4:20 PM

Rob Gronkowski (illness) confirms he'll be active for Week 12 against the Dolphins.

Gronkowski is over the illness that sidelined him earlier this week. He's been bottled up the past couple of weeks but should dominate against the reeling Fins. Vegas favors the Patriots by 16.5 points.
Nov 24 - 2:05 PM

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

We can't imagine Gronk's Week 12 status is in danger. He has a mouthwatering matchup in the Dolphins.
Nov 23 - 4:00 PM

Rob Gronkowski hauled in all three of his targets for 36 yards in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the Raiders.

Gronkowski was surprisingly quiet in this one despite the Patriots moving the ball at will. All of his catches came in the first half, and he was not even targeted after the break as New England nursed a big lead. This was an aberration for the best tight end in the league, and he should get back on the right track next week against the Dolphins.
Nov 19 - 7:42 PM

Rob Gronkowski absorbed four-of-seven targets for 74 yards Sunday in the Patriots’ Week 10 win over the Broncos.

It was a predictably solid outing for Gronk, though maybe not as prolific as fantasy owners were envisioning. Going against a Denver defense that has bled yards to tight ends all year, Gronkowski led New England with 34 receiving yards in the first half and bettered that with 40 yards after the break. Gronkowski made a lunging play that should have been called a catch in the second quarter but officials didn’t see enough to overturn it. Had he caught it, Gronkowski would have been down inches away from the goal line. The best tight end in football will take his act to Mexico City next week for a matchup against the Raiders.
Nov 13 - 12:34 AM

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-9 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Chargers.

Gronk scored on a 2-yard crossing route for the Patriots' first score in the 2nd Quarter. It was the first touchdown by a tight end against the Chargers on the year and the fifth on the season for Gronkowski, which tied Chris Hogan for the team lead. Gronk now has 80-yards receiving or a touchdown in five of seven games. Owners will be without Gronk next weekend with the Patriots on bye.
Oct 29 - 4:27 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 3-of-7 targets for 51 yards in Week 7 against Atlanta.

Gronkowski had a huge catch overturned for offensive pass interference in the first half. He couldn't get anything going with Tom Brady, and wasn't needed with the Patriots running the clock to protect their lead. This will likely go down as one of his worst games of the season. Gronkowski should rebound against the Chargers in Week 8
Oct 23 - 12:19 AM

Rob Gronkowski corralled six-of-10 targets for 83 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Patriots’ Week 6 win over the Jets.

Back after missing Week 5 with a bruised thigh, Gronk was predictably unstoppable in his return to action. Gronk got off to a somewhat slow start (the same could be said of the Patriots as a whole) but chipped in by drawing pass interference to set up a goal-line touchdown for Dion Lewis in the second quarter. Later in the same quarter, Gronk let an end-zone target go through his hands but beat Jamal Adams for a TD on the next play. Gronkowski’s second and final touchdown came on a 33-yard strike from Tom Brady early in the third quarter. He’s now gone for at least 80 yards receiving in four straight games, a streak he’ll look to continue against the Falcons in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 5:50 PM

Rob Gronkowski (thigh) wasn't on the Patriots' final injury report for Week 6 against the Jets.

Gronkowski's thigh injury was never thought to be serious and there's a good chance he would have suited up last week had the Patriots played on Sunday instead of Thursday night. He's averaged 95 yards over his last three contests and should be the top tight end play on the board this week.
Oct 13 - 4:18 PM

Rob Gronkowski (thigh) said he's "ready to roll" for Week 6 against the Jets.

He'll likely draw the questionable tag when New England releases its final injury report later today, though there's never been much concern about his Week 6 status. Gronkowski has gone for at least 80 yards in three straight games and should be the top fantasy play at tight end this week.
