Summary

Now that Rob Gronkowski has been cleared before training camp, we can be confident that he is ready to go for the season. As our own Jene Bramel said "Allowing him to practice with the team means they've closed the PUP door for Gronk. That says they believe he's healthy enough to make the 53 right now. And that he's healthy enough to do more than just conditioning work on the side." Of course, the litany of injuries over the last few years might give one pause but keep in mind most of them were more freak injuries, not the sort of nagging conditioning issues which worry fantasy owners. As long as he is healthy he is Tom Brady's go-to guy here in the offense and he should have a tremendous season. (July 23)

Latest News

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski goes at half-speed (Mon Jul 28, 02:27 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) ran 11-on-11 drills at half-speed in practice Sunday, July 27.

Our View: The Patriots don't need to aggravate Gronk's knee injury by rushing him back into the lineup. We'll see him eased in as training camp goes along. The plan is to have him ready for the start of the regular season.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski will not change play (Fri Jul 25, 11:14 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) said he will not change the way he plays even though he has dealt with forearm and knee injuries in the past few years.

Our View: Gronk is a top-3 tight end for fantasy owners. He's no more injury prone than guys like Julius Thomas (Broncos) or Jordan Cameron (Browns). Draft him with confidence because he can dominate week in and week out.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski work together (Thu Jul 24, 09:18 PM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady worked with TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) on a side field after practice Thursday, July 24, and they ran a variety of pass routes. Gronkowski did not participate in team drills during practice and will be eased back into practice.

Our View: This is what those guys do. Brady and Gronkowski have an amazing connection, and it will be great to see Gronk back out on the field this year. The Patriots passing game will be more robust with Gronkowski in the game. He's a top-3 fantasy tight end with a current ADP of TE3 (3.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited (Thu Jul 24, 12:03 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, July 24. He worked for an hour and 15 minutes before watching the rest of the activities. He didn't participate in 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills.

Our View: Gronkowski is still going to be eased in, and there's no guarantee that he will play in Week 1 even though he's not on the PUP to start camp. We'll monitor this closely, but if you want Gronk on your team, you'll likely have to take him in the second round - maybe even the early second.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski cleared (Wed Jul 23, 08:51 AM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has been cleared for contact and will not be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

Our View: Great news for the Patriots (and for fantasy owners) here. Gronkowski is a big part of the passing game, and the way defenses play him opens things up for others catching passes from Tom Brady. Fantasy owners can look to Gronk as a top-3 tight end. His current ADP is TE3 (3.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
