NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that TE Rob Gronkowski is unlikely to miss more than one game and might not even miss one.
With the Patriots already losing Dion Lewis (ACL) for the season, Julian Edelman (foot) for the regular season and Danny Amendola (knee) for an unknown amount of time, Tom Brady couldn't afford to lose Gronk too.
Brady might be able to get along with a patchwork wide receiver group, but he can't survive long without Gronkowski. The tight end has been the lynchpin to the Pats' offense.
Fantasy owners should probably still have a backup plan, just in case, as the Pats could decide to sit him out for safety reasons against the struggling Eagles in Week 13 - a game they should win at home.

Week 12 at Denver
Danny Amendola was one of the lone fantasy bright spots for the Patriots in Week 1, putting up a 9-117 line off 12 targets. He may find tougher sledding this weekend, on the road against the stingiest passing game matchup for QBs and WRs. Also a little dinged up, we have Amendola as a weak to solid WR4 play in PPR, depending on your league size. He makes for a desperation only play in standard leagues.
