Rob Gronkowski a boom-or-bust option
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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

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

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

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.

Rob Gronkowski a good bet for a TD
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

If you're hoping the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski finds the end zone again Week 4 at Kansas City, giving him three touchdowns in four games to begin the season, here's something you'll like to hear: Big tight ends have come up big against the Chiefs so far this year.

The Dolphins' Charles Clay didn't do anything against them last week, but he's no one's idea of a big tight end. The Titans' Delanie Walker scored a touchdown in Week 1 and the Broncos' Julius Thomas scored a touchdown in Week 2.

Of course, neither of them had much yardage, which has been the norm for Gronkowski this year as well, but with reports of him being in line for more snaps as he continues his recovery from ACL surgery, both trends are in jeopardy. He remains one of quarterback Tom Brady's favorite targets when he's on the field. Considering he didn't play more than 50 percent of the team's snaps until Week 3, his production is fairly impressive.

You're probably starting him regardless of matchups just because he's one of the more promising tight ends from week to week, but I think it's safe to assume even better days are ahead.
