Gronk made a surprise return to practice on Friday, suggesting that he's closer to returning than previously thought, but it's not happening this week.
Fantasy Impact: The popular theory is that Gronk won't come back until Week 17, which would just be a "tune up" for the playoffs. That's obviously not much help to fantasy owners during their fake playoffs.
There's an outside chance Gronk may play next week, but I wouldn't count on it. Re-draft owners should look elsewhere for TE production during the fantasy championships.
