    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Not a surprising outcome. The only real surprise is that Gronk's suspension wasn't longer. In Gronk's absence, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister will man the tight end position, but neither is a legitimate fantasy starting option.

  • Posted: 12/4/2017 12:29pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has been suspended one game for a hit on Buffalo Bills CB Tre'Davious White (concussion) last week. Gronkowski will appeal the suspension.

    Huddle Up: This isn't a big surprise to anyone who saw the vicious hit. Jacob Hollister now becomes a sleeper as Gronk's replacement, with Dwayne Allen also demanding attention. That being said, neither deserves to be started. Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan (if he plays) will see more targets, along with any of New England's trio of running backs.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 1:55pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski rolled up nine receptions for a season-high 147 yards on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners might be a bit disappointed about the lack of touchdowns, but it's his second consecutive 20-point performance in PPR leagues, which is quite timely at this juncture of the fantasy schedule. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 14 at Miami on Monday night.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 7:31pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski faces the Buffalo Bills on the road in Week 13, and in six games in Buffalo, he has 35 catches for 583 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is always a must-start TE1 when he is healthy, and his strong history of success in Buffalo could make him worth paying up for in DFS formats, as well.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 8:00pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski recorded his 16th game with multiple touchdown receptions in the team's Week 12 affair Sunday, Nov. 26, versus the Miami Dolphins, breaking the club record that was previously held by retired WR Randy Moss.

    Huddle Up: For the season, Gronk now has seven touchdown catches, putting him on pace to register his sixth season with 10 or more touchdowns. Remarkably, the only times he didn't accomplish this feat were when he missed extensive time due to injury. As long as he stays healthy, Gronk continues to prove year in and year out that he's the TE1 to own in pro football.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 5:04pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski finished with five receptions for 82 yards and two touchdowns on a team-high eight targets in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Gronk was a little under the weather this week, missing parts of practice, but the illness apparently didn't sap his strength. He posted his second multi-score game of the season and his best yardage total since Week 6 against the Jets.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 1:51pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski should have a big role in the passing game this week and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 11:09am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) told reporters Friday, Nov. 24, he will be ready to play in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is coming off a disappointing fantasy effort in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders, but he'll get another opportunity to remind owners why he's considered the best tight end in the game in another plus-matchup. He remains an elite TE1 play in all formats.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:33pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski continues to be one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 1:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, due to illness.

    Huddle Up: Apparently Gronk is under the weather, so he has a few days to get right. Of course, last week Sterling Shepard was questionable due to illness, which turned out to be migraines, and he was inactive. Gronk isn't out of the woods yet, but there are no reports to suggest this is anything more than just a cold.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 1:46pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught six passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has recorded at least 80 yards in each of the last four games and has four touchdowns during that span. He is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start fantasy option as long as he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 5:02pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) said he will be able to play against the New York Jets in Week 6 after missing Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has had over a week to recover from his thigh injury and should receive his normal workload. He should be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues when he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 1:57pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski missed the last game but should receive his normal workload against the New York Jets. He has posted at least 80 yards in each of the last three games and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 1:51pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) put in a limited practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Gronk has had two weeks to recover from his thigh ailment. As long as there aren't any setbacks over the next couple days then Gronk is an automatic start.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 2:46pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Despite his absence from practice, all indications are that he'll be ready to play in Sunday's road game against the Jets. New York has allowed just 20 receptions for 204 yards and two touchdowns to opposing tight ends so far, ranking in the Top 10 in the league. However, this is Gronk, and as long as he is on the field he is an elite-level fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 10:20am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) suffered a thigh contusion as a result of a leg whip during the team's Week 4 loss to the Carolina Panthers, resulting in his inability to play on a short week in Week 5. However, 'all signs' point toward Gronkowski playing in Week 6 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: It appears safe to get Gronkowski back into fantasy lineups this week. As per usual, he is a great bet to deliver elite TE1 production when he is on the field.

  • Posted: 10/10/2017 10:13am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) took part in practice Tuesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was sidelined in Week 5 by a thigh issue he suffered in practice, but this suggests the injury was as minor as was being reported. Barring a similar late-week setback, Gronkowski will be an elite TE1 play yet again versus the New York Jets in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 7:19pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) is expected to be ready to face the New York Jets in Week 6, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Given Gronkowski's injury history, his owners should still have a backup plan in place heading into Week 6. Whenever he is on the field, he is always a must-start TE1.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 2:35pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) is not expected to play in the team's Week 5 game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to find out Gronkowski's status, but it seems like they will need to find other options to use in their lineups. Dwayne Allen probably will start at tight end and should have a role in the passing game. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues or a flex option.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 5:11am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) is expected to play Thursday, Oct. 5, but he figures to be limited.

    Huddle Up: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't a great matchup for Gronk, but he has performed well in limited assignments as well. Consider him a low-end TE1 possibility this week.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 7:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) traveled with the team for their Week 5 game Thursday, Oct. 5, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Although Gronkowski was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday, the fact he traveled with the team to Tampa is a good sign for his prospects of playing. No matter whom the opponent is, Gronk is always worth plugging in as a TE1, and that's especially true for this week's matchup in what should be a high-scoring affair opposite the Bucs.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 1:25pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was added to the injury list Wednesday, so owners may need to check the inactive list to make sure he is playing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gronkowski should be a No. 1 fantasy tight end no matter the opponent when he is active.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 4:13pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught four passes for 80 yards in a 33-30 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was very effective once again despite not scoring, and he remains a strong TE1 moving forward.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 3:00pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught eight passes for 89 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is probably the best tight end when he is healthy and should be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 6:59am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week. He has a favorable matchup this week and you should have no reservations about starting him in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 2:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and officially is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski told reporters earlier in the day that he ready to play, so the questionable tag appears to be a formality rather than something to worry about for fantasy owners. Still, it's always disconcerting to see that red plus or injury designation. Don't hesitate to use him this weekend in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 1:25pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: It appears Gronkowski is on track to play in Week 3, but owners should check on his status later in the week. Gronkowski is one of the best tight ends in the NFL when he is healthy and can be a starting option for owners but he does come with some risk.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 3:43pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) said he is feeling good and considers himself day-to-day.

    Huddle Up: It appears Gronkowski is dealing with a minor injury and has a chance to play in Week 3. Owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation during the week but should be in starting lineups if he is active against the Houston Texans.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 5:17am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) will test his groin injury Monday, Sept. 18, but it's not believed to be serious.

    Huddle Up: Gronk had a 6-113-1 game in Week 2 and is an elite TE1 in any matchup. Stay tuned for test results.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 12:50pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski's status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. Gronkowski is a No. 1 tight end when he is healthy but his injury history makes him a risky option.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 12:19pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) left the team's Week 2 game early after suffering an undisclosed injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to have a bigger idea of Gronkowski's injury. Gronkowski has dealt with injuries over the last several seasons, which makes him a risky fantasy option, but is a No. 1 tight end when he is on the field.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 10:29pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had two catches for 33 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, Sept. 7. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: There's no doubt it was a disappointing performance from Gronk, but there aren't many teams in the NFL that has someone the caliber of Eric Berry to cover him. The good news is he didn't get hurt. Better days are ahead.

  • Posted: 8/19/2017 7:09pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski made his first appearance in a preseason game since 2012, playing 15 of the first 17 offensive snaps but failing to make a catch against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Don't worry about Gronkowski being held without a catch. As long as he is healthy heading into the season, he is the top fantasy option at his position.

  • Posted: 8/18/2017 2:48pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski probably will not play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has struggled with injuries over the last few years and probably will not play until the regular season. He is a risky option because of his injury history but is a No. 1 tight end when he is healthy.

  • Posted: 8/3/2017 5:47am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has hired QB Tom Brady's personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, and has adopted Brady's workout and diet plan. 'I look at (Brady) and he turns 40 tomorrow and he runs around like he's younger than me. So it's pretty obvious right there,? Gronkowski said after practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, while acknowledging his body already feels different.

    Huddle Up: The article also suggests that the team could adjust the high-risk seam routes that Gronk and Brady have made their bread and butter. Gronk has had several back surgeries, forearm surgeries and reconstructive knee surgery at 28. The clock could be ticking on his stranglehold as the No. 1 tight end in fantasy, but this light bulb going off in him is a good sign for his longevity.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 9:02am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has no limitations as training camp opens, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

    Huddle Up: Gronk has the most upside at the position in fantasy, but he also carries enormous injury risk. Equip yourself with an upside pick as his backup if you make the leap.

  • Posted: 6/16/2017 7:23am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been a full participant in practice and hasn't missed a practice this offseason.

    Huddle Up: That's a great sign for Gronk, but the number of injuries is piling up on his 28-year-old body. The tight end fray is starting to catch up to him, and the risk associated with taking him so high in drafts may not be worth it anymore. The team is also loaded with receivers and running backs that catch the ball. He's still an elite TE1, if not still the best at the position, but the risk is glaring.

  • Posted: 6/5/2017 10:29am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is 'feeling great' after several weeks on the field and in the gym. He has practiced without restriction.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is a huge liability with as much upside in fantasy as the No. 1 tight end. He'll cost a pretty penny in what is a fairly deep but also precarious tight end class.

  • Posted: 5/26/2017 6:46pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been a full participant in drills during voluntary workouts, and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Gronkowski has been 'involved in everything' and 'looks like Gronk.'

    Huddle Up: Despite the injury history, Gronkowski still deserves to be the first tight end off the board in drafts as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. His upside is unmatched at the position.

  • Posted: 5/25/2017 12:12pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has progressed well enough that he has been cleared to take the field for organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski's injury history is well-documented, but he remains the best at his position. It appears he's on track to be ready to play by Week 1, so he should continue to be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 5/23/2017 2:35pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski restructured his deal for 2017 and has a chance to become the highest paid tight end in the league. The deal can boost his salary from $5.25 million to $10.75 million.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is the best tight end in the NFL, so it makes sense that he'd be the highest paid at the position. He should be the first tight end taken in fantasy drafts, but there is the injury risk as he has missed 22 games in his seven-year career.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 7:36am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) said he'll be ready for offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: The injuries are starting to really pile up on Gronk, who turns 28 in May. He's one of the best players in fantasy when healthy, but you really have to back him up with an upside tight end.

  • Posted: 2/24/2017 10:56am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) told ESPN's Cari Champion on Friday, Feb. 24, he has 'no doubt' he will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

    Huddle Up: The 27-year-old Gronkowski is recovering from his third back surgery since 2009 and his eighth surgery overall, but he remains undaunted in his quest to dominate NFL defenses. Gronk was rarely ever completely healthy in 2016 and was limited to eight games, finishing with 25 catches for 540 yards and three touchdowns. Assuming he is cleared in time to start the opener, Gronkowski should return to the top of the heap at his position and be a worthy top-20 pick in fantasy again.

  • Posted: 2/4/2017 1:14pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he plans on playing as long as he can even though he has dealt with multiple injuries during his career.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has missed as least one game in each of the last five season and has played seven or fewer games in two of the last four seasons. Gronkowski probably is the No. 1 tight end when he is healthy, but he will be a risky option in fantasy drafts next season because of his injury history.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 8:24am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (back) surgery wasn't as major as his previous two back operations, according to his brother, Dan Gronkowski.

    Huddle Up: Gronk is out for the season, and he'll be an option early in drafts next season with a big caution flag.
