Rob Gronkowski has one TD, misses another


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) After being held out of the end zone on a quiet day for quarterback Tom Brady Week 2 at Minnesota, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski scored on a 6-yards pass late in the second quarter Week 2 against Oakland. He was again light on yardage, picking up 44 on three catches to give him an average of 38.7 through three games, but he tied running back Shane Vereen in targets with six, good for third-most on the team.

Another one of those targets came in the end zone early in the fourth quarter when a 2-yard pass deflected off a defender and into Gronkowski's hands, but the tight end couldn't haul it in, keeping him from scoring his second touchdown of the game.

Gronkowski, who is still working his way back from surgery to repair a torn ACL, played more than 50 percent of the team's snaps for the first time this season, according to the Boston Herald. He will look to find the end zone again Week 4 at Kansas City, a team that struggled against the pass in its first two games.


Rob Gronkowski fine for Week 3


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who continues to be limited in practice as he works his way back from ACL surgery, is active for Week 3 against the Raiders. Gronkowski hasn't missed a game yet this season, though he had only four catches in each of the first two.

(9/19/2014) Patriots prime pass-catchers Julian Edelman (back) and Rob Gronkowski (knee) have been listed as probable for the Week 3 game against Oakland. They are all but set to start.

Quiet week for Rob Gronkowski


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski continued to play on a limited basis on Sunday at the Vikings, catching four passes on six targets for 32 yards without any touchdowns. The Patriots built a big lead early thanks to several Vikings turnovers and wound up not having to throw much (just 22 pass attempts to Tom Brady). 

We'll see if the Patriots will give more playing time to Gronkowski in Week 3 against the Raiders. 


Rob Gronkowski ready to roll against Vikings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) As expected, the Patriots have cleared tight end Rob Gronkowski for their Week 2 matchup in Minnesota. He had been listed as probable with a knee ailment. Gronkowski is coming off an uncharacteristically meager effort in the opener in which he caught just four passes for 40 yards, though he did snag a touchdown.

Rob Gronkowski ready to go in Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is probable for Week 2 against the Vikings, and that should come as little surprise after he played half the team's snaps in the opener. Gronkowski will likely be limited in practice moving forward coming off knee surgery. 

Rob Gronkowski 'definitely' ready for more playing time


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said Thursday he is ready for more playing time after appearing for just 38 snaps in the season opener against the Dolphins. Gronkowski was limited in his first game back from knee surgery in January.

"Yes, definitely," Gronkowski said Thursday, per NESN.com. "Whatever the coaches have for me out there, whatever the game plan is, when I get my number called, I have to go out there and do my job and perform to the best of my ability."


Rob Gronkowski limited Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rob Gronkowski scores despite limited snaps in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski found a way to make an impact Sunday against the Dolphins, in a 33-20 loss in Week 1.

Gronkowski was limited to 38 of the team's 86 offensive plays, according to ESPN.com, but was a big factor when he was on the field. He was targeted 11 times on those 38 plays, and hauled in four of them for 40 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Gronkowski was appearing in his first game since last December, when he tore his ACL, so his limited playing time was expected. Gronkowski should see his role increase moving forward, with the team's next game set for Week 2 in Minnesota next Sunday.

Availability clouds Rob Gronkowski's Week 1 value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The Patriots expect tight end Rob Gronkowski to play in Week 1 against the Dolphins, but there are some questions about just what his role will be in his first game back from knee surgery. Should Fantasy owners be concerned about relying on him this Sunday?

If Gronkowski can play, he will have the luxury of going up against a Dolphins defense that ranked among the league's worst at defending tight ends last season. The Dolphins allowed 8.4 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends a year ago, though Gronkowski was held to just 27 yards on two catches in his lone meeting with them a year ago.

Gronkowski was limited to just 50 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps in that game, so there is some concern about whether he will be able to flourish in a limited role. However, he drew a deep defensive pass interference penalty, a defensive holding penalty and had a 30-yard touchdown nullified by offensive holding in the game, so he still managed to find room for success. You just have to hope the box score shows that success this time around.

For their part, neither Dave Richard nor Jamey Eisenberg seems to concerned about Gronkowski's value, ranking him in the top-3 among tight ends for Week 1. If Gronkowski is active, it will be awfully hard for Fantasy owners to bench him, so keep an eye on his status prior to gametime Sunday.

Josh McDaniels sounds optimistic on Gronk


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) While Patriots coach Bill Belichick remained non-committal on whether tight end Rob Gronkowski will play Sunday, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels sounded more optimistic.

"Rob has been practicing, and we've been doing some different things, building our offensive system and packages as we go throughout the course of the year," McDaniels said. "He's been a part of that. Whatever we can or are available to use him to do -- however big, small, whatever the decision is at the end of the week -- and he'll be ready to do it."

Gronkowski, who's coming back from knee surgery, said he's playing Week 1 at the Dolphins.


Bill Belichick: No decision on Gronk's status yet


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) While Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) said he'll definitely play Sunday at Miami, coach Bill Belichick said no final decision has been made, reports CSNNE.com.

"I'm glad that Rob's optimistic about this situation," Belichick said. "We'll go through the week of practice and take a look at everything, everybody, and see where everybody's at and try to do what we like is best for the team. With all due respect to Rob -- I'm glad he feels the way he does -- but in the end, we'll have to make the decision we feel like is best for the team and we'll do that as we go through the week."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
