Patriots Beat: Gronk's snaps likely will be limited - [Full Article]

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski probably will not play 100 percent of the snaps this week.

He continues to be listed as limited on the Patriots' injury report with the knee injury. As the Patriots continue to manage his playing time, it's important to remember that he did not receive a full complement of snaps until his fifth week back from injury in the 2013 season.

It was a different injury (he was coming off back and forearm surgeries), but the Patriots may continue to play it safe with Gronkowski's health.

Fantasy Impact: 

Gronk is still worth putting in lineups for his red zone ability, but as a fan pointed out in this Q & A, when Gronk is on the field defenses tend to realize the ball is coming his way. We still have Gronk ranked third on our TE list for Week 3.
