Rob Gronkowski limited in Thursday's practice, but no fantasy concerns for now

Jared Wickerham

Rob Gronkowski was limited in practice on Thursday, but he should be ready to play in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hip) was limited in practice on Thursday, but there are no concerns of him missing this week's game against the St. Louis Rams. Gronk has been dealing with the hip soreness most of the season, and had his practice reps limited as a result, but it hasn't slowed him down yet.

Gronk scored two TDs against the Jets in Week 7. He is now up to 35 catches, 434 yards and five TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Nothing to be worried about here. This is just Bill Belichick's MO now, to limit his star players in practices and keep them fresh for the actual games.

Gronk is probably the best fantasy TE in the league now. Keep locking him in as a TE1 against the Rams this week.
