Rob Gronkowski injury update: Fantasy value unknown with questionable status

Rick Stewart

Rob Gronkowski is inching closer to a return to the lineup, which bodes well for his fantasy value.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Gronkowski broke his arm a few weeks ago and has a lingering hip injury. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. He seems unlikely to play a major role on Sunday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Rob Gronkowski was the best tight end in fantasy football before getting injured. He is one of the most efficient red zone receivers in the entire league and one of Brady's favorite targets.

Should he return this week, Gronkowski would be a top five tight end option. However, he may play a limited role. His status is worth monitoring prior to game time.
