Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: All-Pro tight end, unreliable safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski reeled in all eight of his targets, amassing 107 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 loss to Miami.

Gronkowski investors rejoiced as the veteran tight end hit 100 receiving yards for the second time this season, also logging his second touchdown since Week 1 during New England's road trip to Miami. Serving on prevent defense on the game's final play, however, he failed to bring down Kenyan Drake near the goal line, stumbling at the most inopportune moment as Drake pushed across the pylon to cap a 69-yard score, securing a miraculous upset for the Dolphins. The Patriots may be forced to reconsider late-game defensive packages as result of Gronkowski's error, but in terms of his offensive contributions, tying a season-high with eight targets is an extremely encouraging development as the Patriots head into a Week 15 matchup against Pittsburgh, and a defense that's been below average at containing opposing tight ends this year. The Steelers surrendered 5.3 catches per game to tight ends entering the weekend (bottom 10), and allowed the comparably elite Travis Kelce to explode for 109 receiving yards and two touchdowns when trying to defend him in Week 2.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (ankle/back) has been removed from the Patriots' Week 14 injury report, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

For the second week in a row, the Patriots' injury list is streamlined by their standards, with just two players (Dwayne Allen and Patrick Chung) listed as limited Thursday. Gronkowski has caught three passes in each of his last four games and has logged just two touchdowns through nine contests overall, but the tight end's high snap count and steady involvement in the Patriots passing game give him a decent weekly fantasy floor, even if he isn't racking up stats as gaudy as past years.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (ankle/back) was limited at practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Gronkowski was on the field for all but one of the Patriots' 74 snaps on offense in Week 13's win over the Vikings and with no reported setbacks in that game, we assume his Wednesday limitations were maintenance-related. Gronkowski has caught three passes in each of his last four games and has just two TDs in nine contests, numbers below his usual high standards. That said, Gronkowski's high snap count and steady involvement in the New England offense give him a respectable weekly fantasy floor at the volatile tight end position.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Held to 26 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski caught three of four targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Vikings.

Although Gronkowski finished third on the team in targets behind Julian Edelman and James White, his four looks were hardly enough to allow him to move the needle. He took a couple of hard hits and appeared hampered at times, but he stayed in the game to help see out the win. Gronkowski appeared to be rounding into form with 56 yards and a score last week, making this performance a bit of a disappointment for fantasy owners anticipating a similar effort. He was facing a rather tough matchup and will look to bounce back against the Dolphins next Sunday.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Good to go this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (ankle/back) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Gronkowski was on the field for 69 of the Patriots' 70 offensive snaps in the team's Week 12 win over the Jets, so it's not especially surprising that he ended up removed from the team's injury report to close out the week. We'll assume that the tight end's limitations Thursday were maintenance-related and as such expect him to be busy once again this weekend, on the heels of hauling in three of his seven targets for 56 yards and a TD last Sunday.
