Rob Gronkowski inactive again as fantasy season slipping away

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

Gronk will miss his third straight game with a broken forearm. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) is officially inactive for Monday Night Football against the Houston Texans. The news comes as no surprise, as Gronk is still out indefinitely with a broken forearm. This is the third straight game he will miss and there is still no timetable for his return.

Aaron Hernandez is expected to get the majority of targets at tight end.

Fantasy Impact: With just three weeks left in the fantasy season, it's looking less likely that Gronk will be able to help fantasy owners. He's still not practicing and the Patriots may just sit him until the real world playoffs.

For now, I'd say Gronk is still a "hold" in re-draft leagues, but he's running out of time.
