2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Rob Gronkowski has become Tom Bradyís most trusted and most effective weapon in the passing game, and is clearly the consensus top ranked fantasy tight end. Gronk is one of the true difference makers in fantasy football based on his value relative to the other players at his position and will be chosen in the first round or early second round in almost all fantasy football drafts. In 15 games last season he put up a 72-1176-11 stat line and other than being an injury risk due to his physical style, heís about as safe as any player that one will be deciding upon on draft day.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rob Gronkowski remains out of practice
Mystery injury has sidelined Patriots TE for a week
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 22, 5:30 pm

New England Patriots
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, who pulled up along the sideline during practice on Aug. 15 with an injury that does not appear serious, was not present for the start of the team's on-field workout Monday. Gronkowski has walked through the locker room on Sunday and Monday at the time reporters were present and showed no noticeable signs of an injury. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: There's no reason to suspect this is a Dion Lewis kind of situation, although Bill Belichick probably wouldn't let us know if it was. The Patriots have tried to take care of Gronkowski as much as possible lately, full well knowing his injury history and what he brings to the table. Gronk's absence does free up more snaps for Martellus Bennett and impressive first-year player A.J. Derby. For now, Gronkowski is still a fine selection in the early second round of most drafts.


Patriots to use two TEs 80 percent of the time?
ESPN reporter suggests Gronk, Bennett will share the field a lot
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 18, 5:10 pm

New England Patriots
With defenses paying extra attention to Rob Gronkowski, it will open up more opportunities for Martellus Bennett. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Patriots run more than 80 percent of their offensive snaps with both tight ends on the field, so it won't be a matter of playing time for Bennett as much as how defenses decide to handle the dual threat at the position. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Pats are going to run a two-tight package enough that Bennett should perform like a low-end TE1. With Gronk, Bennett, Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis all vying for catches each week, there may not be enough balls to go around to keep the fantasy owners of all four players happy. The injury histories of Edelman and Lewis may take care of that problem, however. Either way, don't be surprised if Bennett joins Gronk as a top-10 fantasy tight end.


Injury Rapoport: Gronk's injury considered 'minor'
Pats TE seems to have avoided setback
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 16, 9:20 am

New England Patriots
Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) on Twitter: "Sounds like whatever caused #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski to pull up at practice is as minor as it seemed. No worries." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It looks like Gronkowski is okay, but given his checkered injury history, Martellus Bennett looks like a pretty interesting value pick. Gronk is still a great early-round selection, but he does carry risk.


Injury Belichick sings the praises of Martellus Bennett
Pats coach: "Not a whole lot that it looks like he canít do"
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 16, 9:15 am

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots coach lauded the size and skill of Martellus Bennett Monday before the 6--6 tight end hit the field for a joint practice against Bennettís former team, the Chicago Bears. (NESN)

FFToday's Take: "It looks like he can do pretty much everything you want a tight end to do. Heís smart, very smart. He handles the formations and adjustments and things like that, which are a big part of our offense at that position. He handles those well, and itís been pretty easy," Belichick said. It may be worth investing in Bennett as a low-end TE1 with upside, especially given Rob Gronkowski's penchant for injury.


Injury Gronk leaves practice early
Undisclosed injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 15, 5:10 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski left today's practice after pulling up while attempting to catch a Tom Brady pass to sideline in 7-on-7 drill. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronkowski reportedly did not fall to the ground, so he is most likely dealing with a soft-tissue injury of some sort. With this being the Patriots, however, we can expect to be kept in the dark about the ailment as long as possible. There haven't been any indications the mishap is/was serious, but Gronk has a fairly significant injury history. Martellus Bennett is the next man up and would be a fantasy TE1 in the event Gronk is sidelined for a while.


Pats could run two-TE base set in 2016
Martellus Bennett could have TE1 fantasy value despite Gronk presence
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 2, 12:44 pm

New England Patriots
NFL writer Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) on Twitter: "No surprise, but @MikeReiss says Patriots will return to a massive number of 2TE sets. Gronk and Bennett both heavily involved at goalline" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The two-TE base set could mean a possible return to the glory days of Rob Gronkowski and former Pats TE, convicted murderer and PCP enthusiast Aaron "He Who Shall Not Be Named" Hernandez, though they've had some trouble finding someone as talented as the Florida alum. Martellus Bennett could be the guy, and there should be plenty of TDs to go around.
