Pats Beat: Team shows glimpse of how they could use TEs

MassLive - [Full Article]

Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett were rarely healthy at the same time in the 2016 season, so we never saw the duo achieve its full potential. But when they did play together, the Pats liked to line them up next to each other on the same side of the formation. They frequently did this on Sunday night, and it resulted in a few big plays.

Fantasy Impact:

Bennett played just seven snaps on SNF, but QB Tom Brady was 6-for-6 for 78 yards during that time. Bennett actually caught three of those passes for a total of 38 yards while Gronk had a catch for 26 yards. Bennett clearly isn't healthy but isn't letting on the severity of the injury. Clearly he's healthy enough to play, but in terms of fantasy it's hard to tell right now if the Pats were just easing him in or if he's going to be limited.

Fantasy Impact:

We have Gronkowski ranked as our No. 1 TE in standard leagues and as our No. 3 TE in PPR leagues (behind only Zach Ertz and Travis Kelce). If Gronk is playing, you are starting Gronk.

Patriots Inactives

TE Rob Gronkowski
CB Eric Rowe
DL Alan Branch
RB Rex Burkhead
OL Cole Croston
LB Harvey Langi
OL LaAdrian Waddle

Fantasy Impact:

Gronk's absence will boost the outlook of Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola, and Dwayne Allen figures to be more involved in the offense than he has been thus far this season. Jacob Hollister would serve as the No. 2 tight end. Last year, Martellus Bennett was actually more productive with Gronk in the lineup, so don't expect any miracles out of Allen.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) expected to play; will be limited

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 11:23am

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is dealing with a late-week thigh injury. While the expectation is he suits up versus the Buccaneers in their Week 5 Thursday Night matchup, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported early Thursday morning he could be limited.

Fantasy Impact:

Gronkowski is our No. 1 rated tight end for the week in a neutral matchup versus the Bucs, according to our schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) metric. If he suits up, you have to roll the dice and start him, as Gronk is one of very few matchup difference makers in fantasy land. Monitor his status leading up to kickoff to ensure he's active.

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 1:45am

Jeff Howe - [Full Article]

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, who was added to the injury report today (questionable, thigh), made the trip to Tampa, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

New England players who aren't going to play typically do not travel with the team, so it's a very good sign that he made the trip. We're expecting him to play and play well against a banged up Bucs defense, but we won't know for certain until inactives are released on Thursday.

Pats TE Rob Gronkowski misses just one snap in Week 3

Monday, September 25, 2017, 1:14pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's groin injury didn’t stop him from playing 64 of a possible 65 offensive snaps in Sunday’s 36-33 win over the Houston Texans.

But that’s not to say it didn’t take him a lot of hard work to get to that point.

“It wasn’t 100 percent, I would probably say, until the game,” Gronkowski said. “You have to work it through rehab and practice and everything. I knew it was going to be good. That’s why I said this week, ‘I’ll be good.’”

Fantasy Impact:

Gronkowski was better than that, totaling eight catches for 89 yards with a touchdown. He was particularly impressive on the team’s game-winning touchdown drive when he powered forward on third-and-12 to pick up the first down on a 15-yard catch-and-run reception. That was a big play in the comeback, the story all said.
