Rob Gronkowski limited in Thursday practice, but fantasy owners shouldn't panic


Rob Gronkowski was limited in Thursday's practice, but it doesn't sound like anything serious. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hip) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice session, according to ESPN Boston. It's his second straight day of limited practice, but there's no danger of him missing Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Gronk has 29 catches for 356 yards and three TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This is just standard procedure for Bill Belichick, who typically limits his star players in practice through the week. Gronk has been dealing with a hip injury for most of the season, but it hasn't slowed him down yet.

Gronk remains one of the best fantasy tight ends in the league, and has a great matchup against the Jets this week. He's a must-start TE1 in all fantasy leagues.
