Rob Gronkowski active for Sunday's game, improving fantasy value

Rick Stewart

Gronk will play in his first game since mid-November.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially active for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

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.
