Rob Gronkowski will 'take his time' coming back


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:26 pm ET) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will "take his time and then take more time" coming back from a torn ACL suffered last season, a source told Bleacher Report

Gronkowski's heart was questioned last year when he took his time coming back from forearm and back procedures. This year he might not care how long he takes as he wants to practice patience in his rehab. 

The knee injury happened in December of last year. Usually it takes nine months to come back from an ACL injury without incident. That would mean he'd be ready to hit the field by late August. 


Patriots have decisions to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.

Also questionable are cornerback Marquice Cole (shin), safety Steve Gregory (finger), tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) and tackle Will Svitek (ankle).


Rob Gronkowski should remain a Fantasy stud in Week 14


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Fantasy owners of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski who were concerned about his production upon his midseason return from injury have been relieved since he caught eight passes for 114 yards in his first game back. Now they expect big games every time he steps onto the field - and for good reason.

Another one is likely coming Sunday against a Browns team that ranks 21st in the league against opposing tight ends. Gronkowski is on a roll that should continue. He has scored one touchdown in each of his last four games, during which time he has 27 catches for 419 yards.

He could receive much of his coverage from Browns strong safety T.J. Ward, who is stronger against the run than the pass.

Gronkowski is ranked atop the list of NFL tight ends by all three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers for this week. Expect major production against the Browns, especially if they score enough to keep Tom Brady throwing the ball deep into the game.


Rob Gronkowski posts third 100-yard receiving game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski turned in another big performance during a 34-31 win Week 13 at Houston. He racked up 127 yards and one touchdown on six catches.

The Texans did a good job limiting Gronkowski in the first half to three catches for 44 yards, but he did score a touchdown before halftime. Gronkowski had an impressive 23-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. Tom Brady made a bad throw, but the fourth-year tight end was able to get two hands around the football before it hit the ground. He made the catch at the 2-yard line and rolled in for the score.

Gronkowski then got off to a fast start after halftime. He had a 50-yard catch-and-run down to the Houston 13-yard line on the third play of the third quarter. Gronkowski basically carried two defenders on his back for the final 10 yards of the play before being finally dragged down.

Gronkowski, who was targeted 12 times, has scored in four straight games. He has three 100-yard performances this season. The Patriots are back in action Week 14 vs. Cleveland.

Rob Gronkowski facing solid matchup Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is looking at a solid matchup Week 13 against the Texans.

Houston has been slightly below-average against tight ends, allowing 7.45 Fantasy points per game. Through 11 games, the team has allowed 18 passing touchdowns. Six of those have gone to tight ends. The team has done a solid job defending tight ends otherwise, allowing them to average 45.64 yards per game, one of the lower rates in the league.

Despite playing in just five games, Gronkowski already is tied for fourth on the team with 31 receptions. He's immediately become a threat in the red zone, scoring three touchdowns. Gronkowski remains one of the best tight ends in the game, and is a must start Fantasy option each week.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Gronkowski has been targeted at least 10 times in three of his first five games played. He has 21 catches for 291 yards and three touchdowns over his last three games. He'll look to extend the streak to four games in Week 13 at Houston.

Gronkowski has been just about as reliable as you would expect him to be since his season debut in Week 7. Consider him a must-start Fantasy option in all formats for Week 12.
