News: 17 hours agoGronkowski (shoulder) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.
Spin: A shoulder issue has plagued Gronkowski for the past few weeks, but his snap count hasn't suffered, as he's logged at least 70 percent of the plays on offense in six of seven games this season. On top of that, he's found pay dirt in back-to-back games, combining for 10 catches (on 16 targets) for 140 yards and the pair of scores during that stretch. Assuming he continues to play through the injury Monday versus the Giants, Gronkowski could be in line for even more work with Chris Godwin (finger) expected to be sidelined.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Gronk is back! The longtime Patriots' superstar ended his retirement and was traded to the Buccaneers, where he'll reunite with his former quarterback Tom Brady. Gronkowski sat out last season after ending 2018 with his seventh fantasy finish of 11th or better in nine NFL seasons. When healthy, effectiveness has never been an issue for Gronkowski (he has never played a season in which he was lower than seventh among tight ends in yards per target or yards per reception), but durability has been an issue (he hasn't appeared in a full 16-game regular season since 2011).'Gronkowski is unlikely to re-emerge as an elite fantasy option, but he's in a good enough situation to allow mid-to-back-end TE1 numbers.
