Rob Gronkowski finishes with quiet fantasy outing in Week 5

Rob Gronkowski only saw a handful of targets on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tom Brady only looked Rob Gronkowski's way five times throughout the Patriots' Week 5 matchup with the Broncos. Gronkowski hauled in four passes for 35 yards while taking a backseat to Wes Welker on the afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Gronkowski managed to break a tackle or two each time he caught the ball, so it didn't look like his injured hip was causing too much trouble for the big tight end. However, that may have had something to do with him being targeted less. Welker was the only one making a huge impact as Brady constantly looked his way. Check on Gronk's status this week to see if his hip is still a hindrance, but expect him to continue scoring plenty of points for your lineup each week.
