Rob Gronkowski injury update: Out in Week 12, fantasy status in neutral

Jim Rogash

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be out in Week 12. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be out in week 12 after suffering a broken forearm. The Pats big pass-catcher is gunning for a Week 14 return at the earliest, but was originally projected to be sidelined 4-8 weeks.

He is definitely not ready to go this evening when the Patriots take on the New York Jets. Expect Gronk to be watching from the sidelines in a track suit.

Fantasy Analysis: For Gronkowski owners, this is a big time loss. More than likely, this going to hurt owners with postseason hopes. In the meantime, Aaron Hernandez is the guy to own if you can find him. Hernandez is hoping to return this evening versus the Jets and provide a much needed service from the TE spot.

Keep Gronk on your bench but don't drop him because he should return before season's end.
