Gronkowski broke his arm in the team's Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He has missed five straight games but is expected to play a limited role in the Patriots' Week 17 game against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Impact: Gronkowski has been fantasy football's top tight end when healthy this season. Unfortunately, the broken arm took a chunk of his season away. He is a huge part of New England's offense, so his return comes as a big relief for the Patriots.
Bill Belichick is likely trying to ease Gronkowski back into action with the playoffs around the corner.
