Rob Gronkowski limited in practice Thursday: Fantasy implications

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

Rob Gronkowski remains limited in practice and is not a sure bet to suit up in Week 17. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) was limited in practice on Thursday. Gronk hasn't played since breaking his forearm in Week 11. He's expected to be back for the playoffs, but his Week 17 status remains up in the air.

Before the injury, Gronk was having another elite season, with 53 catches for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns in 10 games.

Fantasy Impact: The long-running rumor is that Gronk will come back for a "tune up" against the Miami Dolphins before getting back in game shape for the playoffs.

Knowing Bill Belichick's state-level secrecy with injury news, we probably won't know Gronk's Week 17 status until the inactive lists are released Sunay morning.
