Rob Gronkowski injury update: Fantasy debut is on the way

Jim Rogash

Rob Gronkowski is ready to debut, despite what the injury report says. We break down the fantasy implications.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is listed as questionable to face the Jets in Week 7. He was limited in practice all week due to forearm and back injuries that have bothered him for almost all of the calendar year.

He's playing. Gronk was cleared to play this week and he will make his debut against the divisional opponent. To elaborate, agent Drew Rosenhaus said all of his doctors have cleared him to play.

Fantasy impact: It's simple: Gronk needs to be in all lineups. It doesn't really matter that he and Brady might not be on the same page, he's clearly the best option on the team for catching passes, especially in the red zone.

It's a welcome sight for Tom Brady. He's having one of his worst seasons in a while with a low YPA and completion percentage. His options have little experience with rookies Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell  Thompkins carrying the load on the outside while Julian Edelman needed a measly 20 catches to get a contract bonus.
