Summary

Year in, year out, Rob Gronkwoski is the top option at tight end. He is always among the top two in targets for the Patriots, a team which throws a bunch of balls. His ability after the catch and overall size and athleticism make him dangerous across the middle and hard to stop down the seam. He has only had one season where he has scored less than double-digit touchdowns, and that was a year where he went down to injury. Gronkowski is a big play waiting to happen, and quarterback Tom Brady knows it, so expect him to continue putting up ridiculous numbers for a tight end each year. (May 20)

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski still out (Mon Aug 22, 06:56 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) has not practiced since Monday, Aug. 15, although he does not appear to be dealing with a serious ailment.

Our View: It's not serious, but we haven't seen him on the practice field in some time. Gronkowski should be ready for the start of the regular season, and he's once again a TE1 you can consider early in your draft.

Patriots | Plenty of action for Martellus Bennett? (Thu Aug 18, 05:45 PM) - New England Patriots TEs Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski could be on the field together for up to 80% of the Patriots' plays, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Head coach Bill Belichick views the tight ends as interchangeable and believes they can cause problems for opposing defenses when they're on the field at the same time.

Our View: Adding Bennett was a great move for the Patriots this offseason. Gronkowski is still their top TE, but Bennett could easily perform like a TE2 with upside for fantasy owners. He's getting drafted at TE13 (11.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski out again (Wed Aug 17, 11:49 AM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski held out of practice (Wed Aug 17, 02:40 AM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) was held out of practice on Tuesday, Aug. 16, after an injury scare the previous day. It's unknown if he'll return for the third day of joint practices with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Our View: There's no reason to change Gronkowski's position on our boards unless this becomes a matter of weeks, not days, and costs the all-world tight end a chance to play in the preseason. In the meantime, Martellus Bennett gets to build more and more chemistry with Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo.

Patriots | Gronk's injury considered minor (Tue Aug 16, 12:47 AM) - Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (undisclosed) injury at practice Monday, Aug. 15, is considered minor.

Our View: We can leave Gronkowski in the first round mix, although this is a reminder that Martellus Bennett has massive injury upside if Gronkowski has more than a minor injury at some point this year.
