Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski ready for bigger workload - [Full Article]

Rob Gronkowski is ready to be a full-time player again.

The New England Patriots have kept their dynamic tight end on something of a snap count as he's made his return from reconstructive knee surgery. Gronk has played in just 48.2 percent of the offensive snaps this season. He finally crossed over the 50 percent mark by playing 44 of 75 snaps in Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders.

"I've been in about three games deep now," Gronkowski said, via the Boston Herald. "So basically, it's just progressing every week but it's getting to the point where we can start rolling more and more."

Fantasy Impact: 

Gronk is in the top 10 in both standard and PPR formats and his value will only increase as he gets closer to becoming a full-time player.
