Summary

Forget all the drama about a contract and retirement -- Gronkowski is playing and will once again be Tom Brady's favorite target. As long as he's healthy, he's going to put up TE1 points pretty much every week. Even in a slightly shortened season, like last year, he ends up being the best choice at the position. That won't change in 2018. (June 1)

Latest News

Patriots | Early Rob Gronkowski trade talk confirmed (Tue Jun 19, 01:31 PM) - The New England Patriots were calling teams about a potential trade involving TE Rob Gronkowski as recently as three days before the NFL Draft to 'some teams they trust,' but a deal was never close enough to getting done to result in Gronkowski being informed about the possibility, according to SI.com's Albert Breer.

Our View: This rumor has been out there for some time now. Gronkowski was considering retirement and took some time before publicly declaring his intent to play in 2018. For the last month or so, the Patriots have been working on another extension for the star tight end. Fantasy owners know what to expect from Gronkowski, and he's going off the board at TE1 (3.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski skipping OTAs (Mon Jun 11, 01:08 PM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Rob Gronkowski do not plan on participating in organized team activities this week after attending the mandatory minicamp last week, according to source.

Our View: Gronkowski has been waiting to get a new contract, and reports indicate that is coming at some point in the future. Brady skipped voluntary work earlier this offseason, then he showed up for mandatory work, and now he's back to missing work when he doesn't have to be there. When things are mandatory (training camp), Brady and Gronkowski should be there.

Patriots | New deal likely for Rob Gronkowski (Mon Jun 11, 12:06 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski likely will receive a new contract at some point but no deal is imminent at this time, according to a source.

Our View: Gronkowski was eligible for a new contract in late May, and he's been waiting patiently for that bump in pay. The team should be working on this deal with no hurry as the regular season awaits.
