Rob Gronkowski converted his lone target for a 25-yard gain Sunday in the Patriots’ Divisional Round win over the Chargers.
Gronk was mostly relegated to a blocking role, which has been the norm for him this year. He was exceptional in that regard, continually opening up holes in the run game while also providing stellar pass-protection. Gronkowski drew pass interference against Casey Hayward in the first quarter, which set up a one-yard rushing touchdown by Sony Michel on the very next play. He was only targeted once but made the most of it, breaking multiple tackles on his way to a 25-yard gain early in the third quarter. With retirement rumors swirling, Sunday may have been the 29-year-old’s final game at Gillette Stadium. New England will travel to Kansas City to face the top-seeded Chiefs in next week’s AFC title game. Jan 13 - 5:57 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rob Gronkowski will strongly consider retirement after the season.

Gronkowski did the same last offseason before deciding to return for another year. It sounds like he's leaning toward retiring this time. Gronk's on-field decline has been obvious this season as he's continued to battle injuries. The Patriots have Gronkowski signed for $9 million through 2019, but it won't be surprising if he calls it quits.

Rob Gronkowski caught both of his targets for 24 yards in the Week 17 win over the Jets.

The Patriots throttled the Jets, winning by 35 points, and Tom Brady threw four touchdowns. However, Gronkowski was little part of it all and hasn't looked anywhere close to his pre-2018 self this year. The first-round bye should do Gronk wonders, but he's fallen off big heading into the playoffs.

Rob Gronkowski caught 0-of-3 targets in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills.

Gronk simply was not involved in the offense. He was frequently subbed out for Dwayne Allen so Allen could block in the running game. One of Gronk's missed connections was a pass that went through his hands for an interception. 29-year-old Gronk has looked broken down in 2018. It is sad to see from a truly generational player. Hopefully Gronk can still make some noise in the playoffs.

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) is active for Week 16 against the Bills.

Gronk is a top-eight tight end. Inactive for the Patriots are DE Keionta Davis, CB Duke Dawson, OL James Ferentz, LB Brandon King, S Obi Melifonwu, DE Derek Rivers and DE Adrian Clayborn.
Sun, Dec 23, 2018 11:37:00 AM

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) was removed from the Week 16 injury report.

The Patriots managed Gronk's practice reps this week but he's fully healthy. Gronkowski should see a big Week 16 role with Josh Gordon suspended.

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Gronk was not on Wednesday's report, but it doesn't matter. He is just having his reps rationed. He will be out there against a Bills team that held him to 3/48 in October. With Josh Gordon back on the suspended list, more falls on Gronk's shoulders.

Rob Gronkowski caught 2-of-5 targets for 21 yards in the Patriots' Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

Gronk was a ghost for almost the entire afternoon, drawing only one look before finally recording his first catch early in the fourth quarter. Both the receptions and yards were his fewest since Week 2. Week 16 brings a rematch with a Bills team that held Gronk to 3/43 in October, albeit in Buffalo.
Sun, Dec 16, 2018 07:58:00 PM

Rob Gronkowski caught 8-of-8 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to Miami.

Unfortunately, Gronkowski made highlight reels for all the wrong reasons as the Patriots' "deep safety" on Miami's game-winning multi-lateral play as Kenyan Drake raced right by him to pay dirt. Gronk still looked stiff and unathletic against the Fins, but he won with sheer size and ball skills on offense. He will remain a top-five TE1 play in Week 15 against the Steelers.

Rob Gronkowski (back) has been removed from the Patriots' Week 14 injury report.

We know Gronk was playing against the Dolphins, but it is nice for the Patriots to remove all doubt. Although he has been clearly diminished all season, Gronk remains a top-five, high-upside TE1 against a defense that has been getting smashed up the seam in recent weeks.

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Gronk wasn't much use to fantasy owners last week (three catches for 26 yards), though he seemed healthy, playing all but one offensive snap. He should be out there when the Patriots visit Miami in Week 14. Gronkowski nabbed four-of-seven targets for 44 scoreless yards when he faced the Fins in Week 4.

Rob Gronkowski came down with three grabs for 26 yards on four targets Sunday in the Patriots’ Week 13 victory over Minnesota.

His longest gain of the afternoon came on a 15-yard dart from Tom Brady, which keyed a Patriots scoring drive late in the third quarter. We knew injuries would catch up to Gronk sooner or later and it seems his decline has finally begun. The 29-year-old doesn't move well and can't create separation liked he used to. Despite his struggles, Gronk remains an every-week starter at a thin fantasy position. We'll see what he can muster against the Dolphins in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 2, 2018 08:31:00 PM

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) wasn't listed on the Patriots' final injury report for Week 13 against the Vikings.

Gronkowski is about as healthy as he's going to be at this point. The 29-year-old doesn't move like he used to, though he still belongs in all fantasy lineups. He snapped a six-game touchdown drought by scoring in last week's win over the Jets.
Fri, Nov 30, 2018 04:04:00 PM

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) was added back to the Patriots' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Gronk's absence from Wednesday's report was always too good to be true. We would assume this is a standard part of Gronk's rep management. He's a top-five option for Sunday's home game against the Vikings.
Thu, Nov 29, 2018 03:58:00 PM

Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) is practicing fully for Week 13.

The Patriots removed him from the injury report. Gronk looked fully healthy in his return off the bye last week. He's a top-five tight end for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings.
