News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 26): Gronkowski was a dud if you played him, but that he could get on the field at all with a 10 day rest coming after the game is a great sign for his Week 4 availability against the Bills. We won't know who is starting at quarterback, but we should see a better game and easy start for this week assuming he has a good week of practice.

2016 Week 3 vs HOU (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gronk was on a clear snap count, only playing a handful of snaps. He blocked on all but one of them, and his lone target was a high overthrow in the end one. With 10 days til his next game, he should be more involved against the Bills.
Latest NewsPatriots | Rob Gronkowski quiet in debut (Fri Sep 23, 12:07 AM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) played 14 snaps in his season debut Thursday, Sept. 22, finishing without a catch in a 27-0 win over the Houston Texans. Our View: Gronkowski was able to knock off the rust, but he clearly was not 100%. Even if he can start next week against Buffalo, he'll be a dicey play unless Jimmy Garoppolo can return to action. Once Tom Brady is back in Week 5, Gronkowski should be a full go as the TE1 in fantasy football once again.
link to story Patriots | Rob Gronkowski suiting up Thursday (Thu Sep 22, 07:59 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game Thursday, September 22, against the Houston Texans. Our View: We don't know that Gronkowski will see a lot of work, but it's good he's out there. Even if Gronkowski is out there just for a few plays, he's still a danger to score.
Patriots | Rob Gronkowski will play Thursday (Thu Sep 22, 05:20 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) will take the field against the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 22. It will be his first action of the 2016 season. Our View: Gronkowski is likely to see limited action Thursday night, especially if the Pats take a big lead. That said, it's good to see him out there and he is always a threat to score even in limited use.
link to story Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plans to play (Thu Sep 22, 10:24 AM) - Updating an earlier report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) has told teammates all week that he plans to play Thursday, Sept. 22, against the Houston Texans. Our View: He may not have a ton to do, as the Patriots will probably minimize Jacoby Brissett's workload. They'll still hit Gronkowski enough to have him as a decent TE1, but in daily games, he might be too pricey for what you get.
link to story Patriots | Rob Gronkowski will be game-time call (Thu Sep 22, 08:16 AM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Thursday, Sept. 22, in Week 3. Our View: We suggest going another direction if you can. A very conservative gameplan is going to tamp down his numbers. It's hard to sit Gronkowski though, because he's always a threat. If you play him, make sure your expectations are reasonable and have an alternative in case he is a late scratch.
