Rob Gronkowski injury update: Patriots TE questionable vs. Dolphins, fantasy owners [UPDATE]

There is a very real chance Rob Gronkowski misses another game due to his hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy impact.

Editor’s update: Gronk is not expected to play, per Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter.

The New England Patriots are listing Rob Gronkowski as questionable vs. the Miami Dolphins. Gronkowski missed Week 1 due to a hamstring injury, and it looks like it may cost him another game.

The seventh-year tight end was limited in practice this week, so it looks like he'll be a game-time decision on Sunday. Gronkowski appeared to still be hindered by the injury during practice portions the media viewed on Thursday, a bad sign for his chances of playing this week.

This injury was sustained back on Aug. 15, so seeing it still limit him is very concerning.

Fantasy Impact: If he makes his 2016 debut, Gronkowski will be a must-start vs. the Dolphins. However, you need to prepare as if he will not play and have a suitable backup ready to insert into his place. Gronkowski missing this game would also make Martellus Bennett a decent fantasy option this week.
