2012 Pros and Cons

(+) 17 TDs last year is utterly insane (an NFL record for TEs - 4 more TDs than the previous record) 

(+) Most yards ever in a single season by a TE

(+) Gronk had 2+ TDs in seven regular season games (another in the playoffs)

(+) Caught 90 of 124 targets – Basically, he and Brady are on the exact same page

(+) Probably the hardest guy in the league to tackle

(+) 6'6", 265 pounds of fury

(+) Tom Brady pretty much has a man-crush on Gronk

(–) He just got paid - Will that effect his determination?

(–) Ankle surgery for big guy is never a good thing

(–) Brandon Lloyd could very well eat into his reception and TD totals

(–) No way he has the same fantasy season as he had last year

(–) We expect Aaron Hernandez to become a better player and rival Gronk

Gronk "Full-Go"

Pyro's take: After a busy off season, highlighted by a short WWE debut, Rob Gronkowski is back at 100% health.

Fantasy Goo: Brandin Cooks the new WR addition should take some value away from Gronk's potential. Gronk is still widely considered the TE1 and being healthy for an offseason should allow the Patriots to integrate Cooks into the offense more seamlessly.

Gronk Shows Off Versatility

Pyro's take: Rob Gronkowski gets in a 3 point stance and executes a great form tackle on Mahal on Sunday night at Wrestlemania in Orlando, FL.

Fantasy Goo: Gronk showed that he is healthy and should be good to go for the 2017 season after starting the 2016 campiagn very slowly due to another injury.

Pyro's take: Goodbye Gronk Smash. Watch out for the next person on the Madden Cover.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots offense still is unclear on a weekly level, but the biggest beneficiaries are Martellus Bennett, Julian Edelman and Malcolm Mitchell

Gronk Appears to be a True Game-Time Decision

Pyro's take: After not being able to travel and play with the team last week, it was looking bleak for Gronk's chances this week.

Fantasy Goo: Gronk was only able to practice on a limited basis this week. The Black Unicorn, on the other hand, was a DNP Thursday, but indeed got in a limited session on Friday. This is one to keep an eye for sure. Honestly, if Gronk goes, I like the pivot to Bennett. He is likely to be low-owned in DFS after a let down last week. In the past, he does much better when Gronk is on the field. One reason is certainly because often times, the opposing D will spend valuable resources and energy scheming to stop Gronk. That often leaves more opportunity for Bennett.

Gronk Unlikely vs Jets

Pyro's take: Either the lung injury is worse than expected for Gronk or the Patriots are down playing the severity. Marty B looks to get a majority of TE targets again this week.

Fantasy Goo: Malcolm Mitchell becomes a sneaky start and a strong valued DFS play again. Martellus becomes a must start tight end. Edelman should see a high number of short looks. The big question is Dion vs James White. I expect a 50/50 split for receiving backs this week as the Patriots slowly work in the explosive Lewis.

OUT For Patriots

Pyro's take: Hogan and Gronk did not travel with the team to SFO.

Fantasy Goo: This means an uptick in targets for Edelman, Amendola and Bennett. Play your active Patriots in this positive matchup.

Gronk Injury Unclear

Pyro's take: Monday Gronk was speculated to have a punctured lung, today it's a minor chest injury. Stop listening to the news and go pick up a backup TE.

Fantasy Goo: New England has an early Sunday game so luckily there will be early clarity on his status for this week. Martellus Bennett, the 'Black Unicorn' should be a strong DFS play with Gronk expected to miss time.

Guess Who's Back? Brady’s Back, Back Again And He Doesn't Skip A Beat As He Gets The Patriots Offense Into High Gear

Pyro's take: Tom Brady completed 28-of-40 passes for 406 yards and three touchdowns in New England's Week 5 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Goo: Brady showed no rust in his return and was in sync with the offense. The veteran QB was able to spread the ball around to multiple receivers, completing passes to seven different players. He looks like he is in midseason form.

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-7 targets for 109 yards. Although he did not score, he did provide his owners with confidence that the real Gronk is back and ready to roll for the remainder of the 2016 season.

Martellus Bennett caught 6-of-8 targets for 67 yards and three TD's. The Black Unicorn wasted no time showing Brady he is here in New England to produce. Bennett made the most of each target scoring three touchdowns on six receptions. Adding yet another option in this high powered offense look for Bennett to continue to provide another option for fantasy owners weekly.

Chris Hogan caught 4-of-5 targets for 114 yards.Seven-Eleven lead the Patriots in yardage on Sunday despite only getting five targets. It looks like he may become Tom's deep ball threat in the offense and the two were able to connect on two long passes of 43 and 63 yards. If the connection can continue then he is someone to target in fantasy leagues.

Julian Edelman caught five of 10 passes for 35 yards. Expect the double-digit targets to continue for Edelman as he is Brady's favorite receiver and the production should increase as well.

James White rushed five times for 26 yards and added four receptions for 63 additional yards. White was utilized as the third-down back for the Patriots this role has extra value when Tom Brady is QB as he likes to use his running backs in the passing game and there will be weeks that White may lead the team in targets coming out of the backfield it is safe to say he should have solid value in PPR formats.

Danny Amendola caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards he is listed as the WR3 but falls behind fellow receivers Julain Edelman and Chris Hogan as well as tight ends Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski in the pecking order for targets. There is not much to go around for Amendola and he is not a fantasy option unless an injury occurs.

LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.An early touchdown helped fantasy owners. Expect a similiar workload for Blount going forward and he will be the goal line back which will help to increase his value.

The Gronk still banged up

Pyro's take: ‏@NateUlrichABJ Injury report for #Browns and #Patriots - (hamstring) limited at Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Goo: The Gronk-Man is not 100%. Martellus Bennett and Gronkowski will be terrorizing opponents together sooner or later. With Tom Brady in the fold we know the defenses will be scared with the many weapons the Patriots will use week to week. Edelman, Amendola, Hogan along with Gronk and Bennett will be a tough go for opposing defenses due to Brady’s ability to throw players open. Bennett is a safer play but, Brady might rekindle the magic with Gronk right from the start.
(Welcome Back Kotter Theme Song) Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back… Tom Brady

Gronk Has No Setbacks This Week With Hamstring Injury

Pyro's take: Rob Gronkowski noted Wednesday that he experienced "no setbacks" with his hamstring in his season debut this past Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Fantasy Goo: Gronkowski was limited in his playing time in Week 3 against the Texans. He played just 14 snap on offense and saw one target. The good news though was that he was on the field. He should see his workload increase in Week 4 against the Bills but still may not be 100%. And even though he may not be on the field the whole game he will still be a major weapon and will get red zone targets.

Patriots Injury Report 9-22-16

Patriots Injury Report 9-22-16

Pyro's take: Player- Rob Gonkowski, TE

Injury- Continuous hamstring issue, has been telling his teammates all week that he will play Thursday night.

Source- www.bostonglobe.com

Impact- Several reporters have come out saying that Gronk has a real shot at playing tonight. I would expect him to suit up and pay, but definitely monitor the situation until gametime in case he aggravates the injury or cannot go.

Player- Dont'a Hightower, LB

Injury- Knee issue, is still questionable for Thursday night.

Source- Ben Volin on Twitter

Impact- Hightower logged a limited practice this week after missing that last game with his knee injury. It is unknown if he will suit up yet or not, so monitor up until the game. He definitely has a shot at playing though.

Missing the Gronk

@AaronWilson_NFL Patriots list Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) as questionable

Pyro's take: @AaronWilson_NFL Patriots list Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) as questionable

Fantasy Goo: Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski will play together on the same field one day and it will be glorious. Patience will be tested for now. Tom Brady will make both tight ends shine in the Patriots double tight end offense. If you like to roster two tight ends you might want to grab Pitta or Tamme if they are available until Gronk shows that he is in to stay.

Rob Gronkowski Should Be Ready To Make His Season Debut On Thursday Night

The Boston Herald's

Pyro's take: The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe said he "thinks this is the week" Rob Gronkowski makes his season debut. The Patriots had a walkthrough-type practice Tuesday, but Gronkowski came out on the field in pads and had a "different attitude" than past weeks, according to Howe. "Today was a stark difference in his attitude and willingness to be out there," added Howe.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots could use Gronkowski on Thursday as they need all the weapons they can get against Houston. It looks like rookie Jacoby Brissett will be the starter at QB for New England. Having Gronkowski would be important for Brissett for his blocking and ability to catch passes over the middle. If Gronk does play he could become a security blanket for Brissett who will be facing a tough defense.

Gronk Out Yet Again - Fantasy Owners Cry Woe Is Me


Pyro's take: Well, here we go again. Gronk is out for Week #2

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots are 6.5 home favorites as they host the Dolphins. Bennett will obviously get more looks, but in 2015, only 6 teams gave up fewer points to the opposing TEs than Miami. The Black unicorn fell woefully shy of expectations last week. He was targeted 5 times but only caught 3 for 14 yards. There were 29 TEs that had better fantasy days. He just needs to convert a red zone TD for him to be fantasy relevant.

Gronk Is Out For Second Straight Week

Rob Gronkowski

Pyro's take: Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Gronkowski, who was one of nine Patriots listed as questionable this week, is now truly out for Sunday's contest, despite logging limited practices all week.

Fantasy Goo:The decision to not play Gronkowski was a long term play it safe decision for the Patriots. Since Gronk is indeed out for the second straight week Martellus Bennett should see an uptick in targets, another good thing for fantasy owners is New England's decision gave fantasy owners time to change him out for another tight end.

Gronk Returns To Practice

After missing

Pyro's take: After missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, the star tight end was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Gronk practiced in a limited capacity all last week before being ruled out for the game on Friday.

Fantasy Goo:The Patriots were able to surprise the Cardinals on Sunday night, earning a narrow victory without Gronk. New England got the victory with Jimmy Garoppolo running the offense as Tom Brady served the first of his four-game suspension.
Getting Gronkowski back would be a huge boost for the offense as they face the division-rival Miami Dolphins at home on Sunday. A return to practice is the first step towards that.

Gronk Spiked Patriots TE To Miss Opening Game

New England Patriots

Pyro's take: New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is "not expected" to play in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. Gronkowski did not travel with the team to Arizona.

Fantasy Goo: With Gronkowski out in Week one, Martellus Bennett will draw the start against the Cardinals. Bennett has a solid matchup this week in Arizona. Their defense finished the 2015 campaign ranked 14th versus opposing tight ends in fantasy points allowed giving up 7.9 FPPG. Bennett should be considered a low-end TE1 in the upcoming contest.

Rob not going to play?

According to Pats beat writer mark Daniels "I'm hearing that Rob Gronkowski, Jonathan Cooper and Nate Solder weren't with their teammates on the flight to Arizona."

Fantasy Goo: Not being on the flight is not a good sign for groks availability for Sunday night. Make necessary arrangements by picking up someone now. If you want a chance to wait and see Sunday, look for someone like Jesse James on the waiver wire. Bennett would see a big bump in the rankings if Gronk were to sit as well.

Dion Lewis and Gronk

Dion Lewis briefly participated in the contested 11-on-11 period. Gronk sat that out but participated in half-speed 11-on-11s.

Pyro's take: Dion Lewis briefly participated in the contested 11-on-11 period. Gronk sat that out but participated in half-speed 11-on-11s. Rob Gronkowski wants to 'knock all the rust out'.

Fantasy Goo: Dion Lewis is expected to be ready for week 1. Dion is the Patriots best BOOM option in New England at the running back position. Rob Gronkowski figures to continue where he left off last season as the best tight end option. With Jimmy Garoppolo handling the first 4 games it will be interesting to see if the plug-n-play Patriots offense continues to never miss a beat while Tom Brady watches from home.

Gronk was most consistent fantasy player according to top-12 weeks


Pyro's take: Gronk had another outstanding year last season, finishing with 72 catches on 120 targets for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns. in PPR leagues, Gronkowski finished last season with 13 top-12 weeks in just 15 games played. That 86.7% was the highest of all positions for guys that played in multiple games.

We know that Gronk is the top option heading into next season at the tight end position, as he had 10 games last season with either 100 yards or a touchdown. A dominator no matter where he is on the field, Gronk decimates in the redzone and will continue to as the offense will center around him and Tom Brady for yet another season.
