Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is not expected to play tonight vs Bucs, per source.
Related players: Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola, Dwayne Allen, Jacob Hollister.
We'll know for certain once inactives are released at around 7 pm ET. 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.

Week 7 vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Patriots have the highest implied total in Vegas this week, possibly foreshadowing a shootout. The Falcons are about league average in our aFPA vs. WR rankings and a respectable 11th in overall PPR points allowed to the position. For those reasons, Amendola is a risky WR3 this week, as he already has four teammates to vie with for targets.
