Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman inactive for Sunday against Buffalo


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Julian Edelman are both inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills. The Patriots have already clinched home-field advantage and a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Gronkowski finishes the regular season with 82 catches for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns, his second-best season as a pro. 

Edelman's year ends with 92 catches for 972 yards and four touchdowns. He also may miss out on a $500,000 bonus, which would be triggered if he reached 1,057 receiving yards or the team won 13 regular season games. 


Patriots stars not expected to play significant role vs. Buffalo


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is unlikely to play more than a quarter at most in Week 17 against Buffalo, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Jimmy Garoppolo will likely see the majority of the snaps at quarterback.

The Patriots have clinched home-field advantage and have little to play for on Sunday, which means star players like Darrelle Revis and Rob Gronkowski and other injury-prone players are not expected to play a significant role against Buffalo.

New England opened as an 8 1/2-point favorite at home vs. Buffalo. The line has dropped to only 5 points in favor of the Patriots.


Report: Patriots considering resting Rob Gronkowski vs. Bills?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) When asked if he'll rest any of his starters, Patriots coach Bill Belichick told reporters he'll do what's best for the team. Because New England has clinched home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs and giving his history of late-season injuries, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe expects tight end Rob Gronkowski to sit out Sunday's regular season finale at home against Buffalo.

"We'll do the same thing we always do, so it won't be any different this week than it's been any other week, it won't be any different this year than it's been any other year: we'll do what we feel is best for our football team. Period. Whatever is best for our team, then that's what we'll try to do," Belichick said.

Gronkowski extended his scoring streak to three games in Week 16 against the Jets. He has 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. If Belichick rests Gronkowski, then Timothy Wright would likely get the start.

New England opened as an 8 1/2-point home favorite. The line has now dropped to 4 1/2 points.


Patriots' Rob Gronkowski extends scoring streak to three games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski extended his scoring streak to three games in Sunday's win over the Jets in Week 16.

Gronkowski came down with a 3-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. He was targeted 10 times and finished with only six catches for 31 yards and a score in a 17-16 victory. He has 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.

New England will host Buffalo in Week 17.


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski bounces back from rough first half


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski scored his 11th touchdown of the season during Sunday's 41-13 victory over Miami in Week 15.

Gronkowski bounced back in the second half, after being held without a grab in the first half. Tom Brady hooked up with Gronkowski for a 27-yard touchdown strike in the third quarter. He was targeted eight times and finished with three catches for a team-high 96 yards and a score. 

Gronkowski has cracked the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in his career. He has 76 receptions for 1,093 yards this season. He'll look to add to that total come Week 16 against the Jets.


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski scores TD in Week 14 vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught eight of his 11 targets for 87 yards and one touchdown in his team's 23-14 win over the Chargers in Week 14.

Gronkowski's score came against an overmatched defender late in the first half, and he missed the chance at a second touchdown right before halftime when a severely underthrown pass went right into the hands of a Chargers linebacker. Even with the missed opportunity, the tight end topped 70 yards for the sixth straight game while catching his 10th touchdown of the season. He enters a Week 15 matchup with the Dolphins just three yards shy of his second career 1,000-yard season.


Patriots' Rob Gronkowski leads the way Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski led the way Week 13 against the Packers.

Gronkowski led the team with 12 targets and 98 yards. He hauled in seven passes during the contest. Gronk had one big play, catching a 29 yard pass at the beginning of the second quarter. Other than that, he was mostly held to shorter passes for most of the game. Gronkowski nearly found the end zone in the second quarter. He took a short pass from Tom Brady, and broke multiple tackles before finally going down at the 2 yard line. It was ruled an 11 yard catch. Brandon LaFell hauled in a 2 yard score later in the drive.

Gronkowski will look for more Week 14 against the Chargers. 


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski racks up 78 yards in Week 12 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski managed to surpass the 70-yard mark, despite being heavily covered in Sunday's 34-9 victory over the Lions in Week 12.

Gronkowski got off to a fast start with three catches for 62 yards in the first half. However, with the game well in hand, Gronkowski was limited to only two grabs for 16 yards n the second half. He caught five of 10 passes thrown his way for 78 yards. He has 58 catches for 812 yards and nine touchdowns on the season.

New England will face Green Bay in Week 13.


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski scores TD in Week 11 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught four of his five targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in his team's 42-20 win over the Colts in Week 11.

Gronkowski's touchdown was a thing of wonder, as he hauled in a short pass to the left side of the formation for a first down before shaking off three defenders and breaking free towards the end zone. He hurdled one more defender at the goal line and crashed into another in the end zone to deliver his fifth touchdown in his last three games.

Gronkowski didn't see the 9-11 targets he's managed over the last five weeks in Sunday's win as the Patriots leaned heavily on the running game, but he still contributed in a big way on the impressive scoring play. Now with 53 receptions, 734 yards and nine touchdowns, Gronkowski will match up with the Lions in Week 12.


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has another big game Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski turned in a strong game Week 9 against the Broncos. 

Gronkowski led the way for New England, hauling in nine passes for 105 yards. While Gronkowski was dominant throughout the outing, he didn't find the end zone until the final quarter. After making a tremendous one-handed catch to get the team to the 1 yard line, Gronkowski finished off the drive with a score on the next play. Gronk later caught a nine pass, putting him over 100 yards on the day. It was the 15th 100 yard game of his career.

Gronkowski is on a bye Week 10. 


T.J. Ward feels bad Gronkowski was hurt on low hit, but 'that's about it'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Broncos safety T.J. Ward might hear a chorus of boos reign down in his direction during Sunday's game at New England, and that's because Ward was the player responsible for sending Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to injured reserve last season.

Ward, who was playing for the Browns last season, ended Gronkowski's season in Week 14 last season with a helmet-to-knee hit that tore Gronkowski’s right ACL and MCL. Ward said he has no regrets about the play and wasn’t purposely trying to take out Gronkowski’s knee, per The Boston Globe.

"I feel bad he got hurt, you know, but that’s about it," Ward said Wednesday. "I’m just playing fast out there, and coincidentally, it was a bang-bang play. I think if he wouldn’t have gotten hurt, then it wouldn’t be an issue."

Ward, who is seven inches shorter and 65 pounds lighter than Gronkowski, said the only way to tackle Gronkowski is by going low.

"Gronk’s a big dude. He gets hit, and he keeps going. Guys bounce off him, and he’s throwing guys left and right," Ward said. "I was taught that if you can take a guy’s wheels away from him, he’s no longer mobile, and that’s what you’ve got to do with big guys. I’m not going to go in there and bang heads with somebody that’s 60 pounds more than me. I’m going to hurt myself."


Rob Gronkowski ready to blow up the league again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) After being limited early on by his recovery from a torn ACL, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski got back to a more typical workload Week 5 against Cincinnati, and his numbers improved as a result. But may the record show that Week 8 against Chicago was when he officially "made it back."

This is what he can do, folks. If you've wondered why he's achieved near-mythical status in Fantasy despite all the injuries over the years, it's because he's proven capable of performances like this one any given week. He has the size to run over anyone who gets in his way, as he did on his third touchdown in Week 8, and yet the athleticism to make a leaping grab along the sidelines, as he did on his first two. And of course, he has a quarterback in Tom Brady who can make the most of his abilities.

Now, for the record, Gronkowski certainly wasn't a scrub prior to Sunday. Week 8 was his third game in four with at least 90 receiving yards. But his scoring rate through seven games was actually a bit lower than it had been in recent years. He may have a few more multi-score games in his future to make up for it.


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski dominates the Bears Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski dominated the Bears Week 8.

Chicago had no answer for the tight end. Gronkowski wound up hauling in nine passes for 149 yards and three scores during the contest. He was consistently able to beat whoever the Bears matched up on him. On his final score, Gronkowski threw safety Ryan Mundy aside before rumbling 46 yards for the score. Gronk would leave the game at that point due to dehydration, and did not return. 

He'll look to continue his strong play Week 9 against the Broncos. 


Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski questionable Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski left Sunday's game due to dehydration.

Gronkowski is questionable to return to the contest. He's already hauled in nine passes for 149 yards and three scores. Gronkowski went to the locker room after breaking off a 46 yard touchdown.


Patriots' Rob Gronkowski contributes Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski didn't have a great game Thursday, but was still a big part of the team's offense.

Gronkowski finished with six receptions for 68 yards. He was targeted a team-high 10 times during the contest. Gronkowski saw a lot of time on the field, indicating that he's close to fully healed after his offseason issues. Backup tight end Tim Wright was not a factor in the game, leaving Gronk as the only threat at the position. Despite receiving a fair amount of targets, the team opted to go to other options in the red zone.

Gronkowski will take on the Bears Week 8.


Tom Brady: Rob Gronkowski is 'absolutely' back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said tight end Rob Gronkowski is back to his old self following last year's torn ACL. "Oh yeah, he is back," Brady told ESPN.com. "Absolutely."

Gronkowski has 13 catches for 194 yards over the past two games, and four touchdowns in six games this season.

"He's a great player and he's playing great," Brady said. "So it's great for a quarterback. I have a lot of confidence in him, I love playing with that guy. Great to be out there with him."

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski has TD called back Week 6 due to penalty


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski fell 6 yards shy of recording his second straight 100-yard game during a 37-22 win Week 6 at Buffalo. Gronkowski, who was targeted nine times, finished with seven catches for 94 yards.

Gronkowski should have had his fifth receiving touchdown Sunday, but he had an 18-yard touchdown catch called back in the fourth quarter due to an offensive holding penalty.

The seven catches were a season high for Gronkowski, who has totaled 13 catches for 194 yards in his last two games. The Patriots are back in action Thursday vs. N.Y. Jets.


Patriots injury report finally sans TE Rob Gronkowski


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been removed from the injury report for the first time this season. He had been on the list since undergoing ACL surgery in January.

Gronkowski is coming off his finest game of 2014. He caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against Cincinnati. He had just 13 receptions for 147 yards in the previous four games combined.


Patriots finally unleash Rob Gronkowski


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had been a useful Fantasy option through the first four weeks, but he was clearly limited while working his way back from offseason knee surgery. We got a glimpse of just what a full-strength Gronk can do Sunday, as he dominated in a 43-17 win over the Bengals.

Through the first four games, Gronkowski had been mostly limited to situational usage, playing just 50.7 percent of the team's total offensive snaps. That changed in a big way Sunday night, as he saw the field for 68 snaps, 79 percent of the team's plays. He had played just 140 total snaps entering Sunday.

Over the last few weeks Gronkowski and the team's coaches have talked about how close he was getting to full health, and it was good to see him finally unleashed. Even when limited, as he has been over the last two seasons, Gronkowski has still scored in eight of his last nine games.

If you remained patient with him, Gronkowski is about to reward you in a big way. Assuming he is ready to play his full role moving forward, Gronkowski should be considered a top-5 tight end the rest of the way.


Rob Gronkowski produces first 100-yard game of 2014


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski flashed his pre-injury form in the Week 5 blowout of the Bengals. Gronk drew a game-high 11 targets and caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown.

It was Gronkowski's first 100-yard effort this year, 13th of his career. With his 16-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter, Gronkowski has scored in eight of the last nine full games he's played.

Gronkowski, who had not cleared 50 yards in any previous game this year, is up to four touchdowns entering Week 6 at Buffalo.


Rob Gronkowski among Patriots cleared for SNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) is active as expected for Sunday night's game against the Bengals. The other injured players suiting up are linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh), cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (thigh), defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee) and defensive end Chandler Jones (shoulder).

Rob Gronkowski a boom-or-bust option


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski found the end zone for the third time in four games, and he salvaged a subpar showing for the third time in four games as a result. Still, there are real questions about how much more he is capable of at this point.

Gronkowski has played a limited role in his return from knee surgery. Even Monday, when he played his largest role of the season, he was on the field for just 62 percent of the team's snaps. He still had just three passes thrown his way, a troubling sign -- especially since his touchdown came after backup Jimmy Garoppolo entered the game.

Gronkowski is still the best weapon in the Patriots' passing game, which is a concern if you are a Tom Brady owner as well. At this point, he clearly is not the same guy we have seen in the past, and it is hard to say when, or if, he might be that guy. The Patriots are going to keep looking for Gronkowski in the red zone, which might help him salvage a few more games and possibly even his season.

However, Gronkowski ranks just 14th among tight ends in yards right now, making him very much a boom-or-bust option until he gets back to full strength. 


Rob Gronkowski notches third touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski drew just three targets in Monday night's loss in Kansas City. He hauled in an 18-yard pass in the first half and a 13-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, his third score this season.

Tom Brady wasn't able to get the ball to Gronk, who saw double coverage. But rookie Jimmy Garoppolo found Gronkowski for the late score.

Gronkowski's 31 yards marked a season low, and he has not cleared 50 yards in any game. He'll play the Bengals on Sunday night.


Rob Gronkowski set for Monday Night Football


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was probable with a knee injury, is active as expected for Monday's game in Kansas City. Gronkowski says he's getting closer to 100 percent after undergoing ACL surgery in January.

Six Patriots probable to play in Week 4


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) The Patriots have listed six players as probable for Week 4 on the team's final injury report Saturday, including tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee), defensive lineman Michael Buchanan (ankle), linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh), offensive lineman Dan Connolly (foot), cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder) and safety Don Jones (hamstring).

All six players were limited in practice Saturday, but all have designated as probable to play. Gronkowski played in more than 50 percent of the team's offensive snaps in Week 3 for the first time this season and should continue to see his workload increase.
