2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a strong rookie season which showcased his ability to make plays in the red zone but yielded just 546 receiving yards, Gronkowski’s role in the Patriots offense took off in 2011 as he set single season league records for the tight end position with 1,327 receiving yards and 17 receiving touchdowns. And for good measure he added another touchdown on the ground. He is clearly a major cog in one of the league’s best offenses so the question becomes: where do you take him? While Gronkowski has been a revelation in New England (and to his fantasy owners), the odds of him replicating his 2011 production are unlikely. Brandon Lloyd joins the Patriots this season as a proven deep threat and defenses will adjust and increase their focus on Gronkowski. His high ankle sprain at the end of last season was a reminder of the injury issues that caused him to drop into the 2nd round of the 2010 draft. Gronkowski rates as either the 1st or 2nd ranked fantasy tight end for 2012 but don’t get crazy and use a 1st round pick to get him.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rob Gronkowski out indefinitely     -- Thu Dec 1 2:05 pm --

Surgery planned for injured back Dec. 2
Bad news for Rob Gronkowski: Back injury ended up being worse than originally believed. He will have surgery tomorrow, per source. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: Gronk is reportedly dealing with a ruptured disk and will be sidelined roughly eight weeks, which would put him out through the week before the Super Bowl. It would seem to be good news for Martellus Bennett owners, but he isn't even close to fully healthy and probably hasn't been since September. With no other tight end capable of picking up the slack, expect James White, Dion Lewis and probably even Malcolm Mitchell to absorb extra targets down the stretch.
Injury Gronkowski expected to play     -- Sun Nov 27 8:00 am --

Chest injury
After missing last week's game, #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (lung) is expected back vs. the #Jets, sources say. This was the hope all along. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Gronk was limited in practice this week but it appears he's going to give it a go. The Pats/Jets kickoff late this afternoon making Gronk a risky start for fantasy owners. He's wroth the roll of the dice against the Jets.
Injury Gronk questionable, limited in practice Friday     -- Fri Nov 25 4:30 pm --

Tight end's status unclear
Tight end Rob Gronkowski was also a limited participant on Friday to wrap up a week of practices after missing last Sunday’s game with a chest injury. There was a report Thursday that Gronkowski will miss this week’s game as well, but the Patriots have listed him as questionable along with Brady. (ProFootballTalk)

FF Today's Take: Basically all of the Patriots fantasy relevant players in the passing game are questionable. Tom Brady, Gronk, Julian Edelman, Martellus Bennett and Chris Hogan. It would be a complete shock if Brady, Edelman and Bennett didn't play. Gronk and Hogan are still up in the air. Perhaps we'll get more clarification before the late-afternoon kickoff on Sunday.
Injury Rob Gronkowski expected to miss Week 12     -- Wed Nov 23 8:45 am --

Chest injury
Rob Gronkowski is not expected to play this Sunday against the Jets. The Patriots staff is prepping the offense without him per sources. (Dianna Russini on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Gronk took a vicious hit to the chest in Week 10 that caused him to miss Week 11. Martellus Bennett will once again be on the TE1 radar in a matchup with the Jets who are right in the middle of the pack in fantasy points allowed to the position.
Injury Chris Hogan, Gronk out for New England     -- Fri Nov 18 2:10 pm --

Pats down two receivers
The Patriots have ruled TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Chris Hogan (back) out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: We expected Gronk to be sidelined but Hogan's absence comes as a bit of a surprise. Expect Danny Amendola to see more action at wide receiver, but he'll be nothing more than a dart throw given the Patriots tendency to spread the ball around. Hogan was limited in practice this week with a back injury.
Injury Rob Gronkowski misses practice Friday     -- Fri Nov 18 11:45 am --

Missed pactice all week
Rob Gronkowski was not present at the New England Patriots' practice on Friday. That means he has not practiced at all this week, making it extremely unlikely that he played the Patriots' Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. (CBS Sports)

FF Today's Take: It's seems unlikely that Gronk will play but we should get a better idea by Saturday. If he sits, Martellus Bennett would vault into TE1 territory and make for a great DFS option in Week 11.
Injury Gronk not at practice Thursday     -- Thu Nov 17 4:50 pm --

Second straight missed practice
TE Rob Gronkowski (chest) is not present for Thursday's practice, marking the second straight day he has been absent with a chest injury. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Owners should have their answer regarding Gronk's playing status by Friday, when the Patriots get on the plane to go to San Francisco. He had to cancel a non-football commitment because he wasn't cleared to fly and there has been a suspicion all week he will not play against the 49ers. With games against the Jets and Rams over the next two weeks, don't be surprised if the Pats play this situation very cautiously. Martellus Bennett is a near-elite TE1 play this week.
Injury Gronkowski suffered punctured lung in Week 10     -- Mon Nov 14 8:30 pm --

Expected to miss Week 11
Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski suffered what is believed to be a punctured lung on Sunday vs. Seahawks, according to sources. But could miss just one game. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Gronkowski was understandably staggered after taking a vicious legal hit from Earl Thomas and missed a few plays before returning. Martellus Bennett started going off almost immediately after it happened, and he stands to benefit the most should Gronk missed Week 11 against San Francisco. In such a case, Bennett stands to be an elite TE1 play.
