Report: Rob Gronkowski expected to try and practice this week, fantasy value low

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will try and return to practice this week, according to a report. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will reportedly try and practice this week, a league source tells Shalise Manza Young of The Boston Globe. Gronkowski broke his left forearm Nov. 18 against the Indianapolis Colts on an extra point and had surgery the next day.

Gronkowski had been expected to miss four to six weeks. He has 53 catches for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season. The Patriots face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: It's still not clear if this will happen and fantasy owners certainly shouldn't bank on having him back this week.

The Patriots are still fighting for the No. 1 seed but the Patriots will likely want him ready for the playoffs than for Week 15. Fantasy owners should monitor this as the week goes along.
