2014 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 Gronkowski expected to play, may be limited     -- Fri Sep 5 12:08 pm --

Gronk recovering from ACL injury
Word is Rob Gronkowski (ACL) was right earlier in the week. The Patriots TE is expected to play vs. Dolphins. Snaps may be limited tho. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: This has been conventional wisdom all week. Gronk owners should pencil him in their starting lineups. The Patriots and Dolphins play early on Sunday so we'll know ahead of time if the touchdown machine is inactive.
Injury TE Rob Gronkowski limited in practice     -- Wed Sep 3 5:42 pm --

Aaron Dobson not listed on injury report
The New England Patriots will head into their Week 1 at Miami with little injury concern, except for the All-Pro tight end who may or may not play. Rob Gronkowski, recovering from ACL surgery, was among four Patriots listed as limited participants in Wednesday's practice. On Monday, Gronkowski told reporters he'd be playing against the Dolphins, but on Tuesday Bill Belichick said "I'm glad Rob is optimistic, but in the end we'll have to make the decision that's best for the team." A key player who had missed preseason time, wide receiver Aaron Dobson (foot), was not listed on the injury report. (Masslive.com)

FF Today's Take: Those who drafted Rob Gronkowski knew he might be limited for the season opener and should already have a backup plan in place. Even if he continues to practice this week, he would likely be limited against the Dolphins. After missing a chunk of time, Aaron Dobson (foot) looks to be at full health and should be worked back into the offense right out of the gate. He remains a player to watch in all formats and is worth stashing in deep leagues.
Injury Rob Gronkowski says he's playing Week 1     -- Mon Sep 1 10:49 am --

Likely limited
Rob Gronkowski says he has green light to play in the regular-season opener. Gronk: “Definitely not [playing] every single snap. But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good.” (Mike Reiss via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It would be nice to hear Bill Belichick echo the same but that's doubtful to happen anytime soon. It appears that the Pats tight end will be on the field Week 1 and if even if he is limited, he's worthy of being in your lineup given his high touchdown rate.
Patriots acquire TE Tim Wright from Buccaneers     -- Tue Aug 26 1:37 pm --

New England gives up G Logan Mankins
The Patriots have traded longtime Patriots guard Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for tight end Tim Wright and a fourth round draft pick, the team confirmed. (Boston.com)

FF Today's Take: Wright finished 13 among fantasy tight ends last season and should fit well into the Patriots offense as they look to replace the void left by Aaron Hernandez. Rob Gronkowski (knee) and Michael Hoomanawanui are both dealing with injuries. Wright's fantasy value was non-existent in Tampa but he'll move into the TE2 discussion thanks to a change of scenery.
Injury Gronk takes part in 11-on-11 drills     -- Mon Aug 18 5:05 pm --

TE continuing comeback from ACL, MCL tears
TE Rob Gronkowski taking another step in his progression, participating in 11-on-11 drills for first time. Lot of balls thrown his way. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It's been a summer full of mostly positive news in Gronkowski's recovery, but he still remains one of the biggest injury risk-reward players in fantasy. He is unlikely to take a snap in the preseason and still questionable for Week 1, although getting the Patriots to update his status in that regard figures to be useless. Gronk's current ADP is in the middle of the third round.
Injury Gronk may not be available for week 1     -- Tue Aug 12 7:17 pm --

Returning from ACL injury
From time to time throughout the offseason, reports have emerged that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be ready to go (or words to that effect) on Week One after suffering a torn ACL late in the 2013 regular season. Given his slow return from a broken arm last season, that seemed overly optimistic. Gronkowski’s fairly slow start to camp has made it seem like much less than a sure thing. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Gronkowski’s anticipated Week One availability sits at 50-50, with perhaps a shade above the even-money proposition. (ProFootballTalk.com)

FF Today's Take: This shouldn't come as a total surprise to seasoned fantasy owners. Gronkowski remains a high risk/high reward player and news of him potentially missing the first week only echoes that sentiment.
Injury Gronk does 7-on-7 work for the first time     -- Mon Aug 11 4:40 pm --

Continues his return from ACL, MCL surgeries
Rob Gronkowski involved in 7-on-7 work at practice today. First time he's been out there for that. (Tom Curran on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: He wore a non-contact jersey, but any progress for one of the game's best tight ends is good news. Although we have yet to receive any definitive timetable regarding his return to game action - and probably won't since we are talking about New England here - but Week 1 appears to be a reason assumption. Gronkowski is potentially the biggest risk-reward player in fantasy again this season.
Injury Gronk cleared for start of training camp     -- Wed Jul 23 10:30 am --

Will not be placed on PUP list
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared to play by doctors and will not be placed on the active/physically unable to perform list to open training camp, coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Gronkowski had knee on January 9th making this a very quick return to the practice field. It's likely he will be limited in camp but this puts him on schedule to play Week 1. Gronk and Brady's ADP will rise on this news but the injury history (knee, forearm, back) of the talented tight end should be red flag to fantasy owners.
