From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 10): Gronkowski has come full circle this year and returned to Week 1 form despite being remembered for his missed tackle on the final play against Miami. He has lit up the Steelers in the past and should be a strong TE1 this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 14 vs MIA (8 / 8 / 107 / 1 rec)

The healthiest he's looked this season, Gronk had a good day at the office, catching a red zone score and taking a shot to the back by a defender looking no worse for wear. His red zone score was nice placement up high by Tom Brady, and Gronk was beating his defenders on more than just that play. His health is a critical part of the Pats' success, and eyes will continue to look towards the playoffs for Gronk.

2018 Week 13 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

A fairly quiet day once again for Gronk against the Vikings. The big tight end isn't running with the same fluidity he has in seasons past, which makes one wonder if injuries are taking a toll on his body. Still, the only concern for him and the Pats is once again the playoffs, so don't be surprised if he's treated lightly until then.

2018 Week 12 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 56 / 1 rec)

The big news of the day was another Gronk spike after a multi-week back injury. On the play, Gronk split two defenders up the seam, and caught the ball while getting hit by a defender. Tom Brady also looked Gronk's way on several other end zone targets, though those were much more questionable decisions, including one where Gronk had to play "defense" and bat at a ball heading towards a defender. Still, the hope is he came out of the week healthy.

2018 Week 8 vs BUF (8 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

If not for a great grab that was literally plucked away from a defender, Gronk's night would have been eerily quiet. The catch set the Pats up for a 1 yard rushing score. He did see his second red zone target of the year, but wasn't able to score. Though he sat out a week with a back issue, one wonders if Gronk's health is affecting his play, though obviously defenses do pay special attention to him.

2018 Week 6 vs KC (4 / 3 / 97 / 0 rec)

Though he only had 3 catches, Gronk's two biggest plays were in the 4th quarter. On one, Brady faked into the backfield before hitting Gronk for a massive gain up the left side seam. The second was what set up the Pats for their last second field goal with a deep toss and catch to the big man. Though he isn't getting the red zone treatment he's used to seeing, Gronk is still dominant with the ball in his hands, and had key blocks multiple times during the game.

2018 Week 5 vs IND (7 / 6 / 75 / 0 rec)

With Julian Edelman back, Gronk was able to get free on several routes for a change, often resulting in the big chunk plays we are accustomed to seeing from him. He did have a drop that resulted in an interception, but that won't be an issue going forward. It's all steam ahead for the big man, who should have bbetter stat lines ahead.

2018 Week 4 vs MIA (7 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)

Though he didn't have a big day, the news for Gronk was that he left the game in the third quarter with an ankle injury. Obviously this bears monitoring. The Dolphins paid very close attention to him, as he was double covered on several plays, yet still made tight window catches.

2018 Week 3 vs DET (5 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)

With absolutely no other weapons in the passing game, Gronk was double and tripled teamed all night. He did drop a diving catch, but there wasn't much else he could do. It was odd that more plays weren't specifically dialed up for him, but the play calling was simply bad.

2018 Week 2 vs JAX (4 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Gronk was bottled up for most of the day by a great defense, though there were a couple obvious no-calls on his defenders. Tom Brady also missed a couple 1 on 1 shots, and though there is no guarantee, a shot to Gronk with 1 on 1 coverage is always decent money to pay off. Part of the issue was the Jags pass rush, which often gave Tom Brady no time to throw. Gronk will have better days ahead, and we all know that.

2018 Week 1 vs HOU (8 / 7 / 123 / 1 rec)

To absolutely no one's surprise, Gronk was Tom Brady's top target, catching multiple chunk seam passes and scoring a touchdown to boot. His score was a nice deep back shoulder throw in double coverage that saw Gronk simply snare the ball away from defenders and narrowly prance into the end zone for a score. The big blemish on the day was that he fumbled a ball, and Jeremy Hill was hurt chasing the fumble. Still, he will be the focal point of the offense for at least the next few weeks.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski surpasses 100-yard mark (Sun Dec 9, 04:34 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught eight passes for 107 yards and one touchdown against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14.

Our View: Gronkowski looked as good as he has since Week 1. Any teams that are still alive with Gronkowski will likely start him against the Steelers next week.

Patriots | Week 14 injury report for New England (Fri Dec 7, 03:25 PM) - New England Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. TE Dwayne Allen (knee) was upgraded to a full practice Friday but is listed as questionable. QB Tom Brady (knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) were not given official practice designations Friday but do not appear on the injury report. S Patrick Chung (shoulder) returned to a full practice Friday and was also removed from the injury report.

Our View: Gilmore's injury is new. He might be in danger of missing the game, which would make DeVante Parker a more interesting desperation play for Week 14.
