Rob Gronkowski finds end zone for fantasy owners for fourth straight week

Scott Halleran

The Patriots continue to enjoy the return of Rob Gronkowski, as he turned in another robust stat sheet on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski bowled over yet another defense on Sunday, helping his team earn 34-31 win.

This time, the unfortunate defense on the other side was that of the Houston Texans, and the results did not go in their favor. Gronkowski routinely ripped off huge chunks of yardage, including a catch-and-run that ended in a 50-yard gain before defenders wrestled the hulking tight end out of bounds.

Gronkowski's highlight of the game resulted after diving for a low, 23-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady late in the first quarter, setting the tone for another dominant afternoon.

Fantasy Spin: Gronkowski finished his day with six catches for a team-high 127 yards and a touchdown, extending his hot streak another week. That's now four straight games that Gronkowski has found the end zone, and the third time in six games he has eclipsed the century mark in receiving yards.

The Patriots offense continues to return to its dominant form of past seasons, and Gronkowski will continue to post gaudy numbers. There is no scenario where Gronkowski should be benched when the Cleveland Browns come to Foxboro in Week 14. Fantasy owners can pen him in as a TE1 and not look back.
