New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is probable to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday with his ailing forearm and back issues. He was limited in practice all week and is expected to play.
After almost two months of keeping fantasy owners on pins and needles, fantasy owners have nothing to worry about here.
He was a target monster in his season debut, turning his 17 into eight catches for 114 yards. The Jets actually did a nice job covering him last week and put the brackets on him, which explains the low catch percentage.
The good news is that he looked healthy, and getting 17 targets is a nice way to get your season off to a nice start.
Fantasy impact: All that patience should feel pretty good. Gronk is likely the top tight end in most fantasy formats and even though he was quiet against the Dolphins last year, it would take a crazy person to put him on the bench this week. Tom Brady's numbers should go up a little with Gronk back.
