Rob Gronkowski is not ready to return from injury, diminishing fantasy value

Jim Rogash

The Patriots top receiver could miss his sixth straight game on Sunday.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not yet ready to return from his forearm injury, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe.

Gronkowski broke his forearm in the team's Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He has missed the team's last five games with the injury. The Patriots may not chance Gronkowski's health in Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Rob Gronkowski was on his way to another stellar season for fantasy owners before breaking his arm. He wil likely finish the season with 748 yards and 10 touchdowns in the regular season.

Gronkowski should enter 2013 as fantasy football's top ranked tight end. When healthy, Gronkowski cannot be covered.
