Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Expresses no doubt with regard to Week 1 status
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Gronkowski, who was placed on IR this past December after undergoing a procedure on his back, relayed that he has "no doubt" that he will be ready for the start of the upcoming regular season, CSN New England reports.

While Gronkowski's optimism on the injury front is encouraging, the tight end's status will still be worth monitoring closely in the coming months due to his lengthy history of back woes (including three surgeries) as well as other assorted ailments. When healthy, Gronkowski is fantasy's top tight end. However, following a 2016 campaign in which he only played eight games -- logging 25 catches for 540 yards and three TDs in the process -- his durability issues will no doubt be a concern for prospective fantasy owners. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Martellus Bennett, who filled in capably for Gronkowski down the stretch, is heading toward free agency and could leave the Patriots.

Patriots' Michael Floyd: Pleads guilty to extreme DUI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and began serving a 24-day sentence at Maricopa County Jail on Thursday, FOX 10 Phoenix reports.

Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a policy officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December. The receiver was released by the Cardinals immediately after that incident, but later signed with the Patriots for the remainder of the season. Following his sentencing, Floyd will serve 24 days behind bars before spending 96 days on house arrest. He'll also be required to pay a $5,000 fine, perform community service and attend an alcohol abuse class. While discipline from the NFL also potentially awaits, so too does Floyd's unrestricted free agency this offseason.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Lucien signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots on Tuesday, NESN reports.

The Patriots selected Lucien in the seventh round of last year's draft, but the Arizona State product failed to survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. In turn, he spent the season on New England's practice squad and will now slot in as the team's No. 7 wideout entering the offseason.
