Gronkowski caught 8-of-11 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-14 win over the Chargers.

The Chargers did a nice job of tackling the hulking tight end, but covering him was a different story. Gronkowski's 14-yard touchdown came on a perfectly-thrown ball to his back shoulder, giving cornerback Brandon Flowers little chance to make the play. With Jimmy Graham suddenly struggling in New Orleans, Gronkowski is the clear top option at his position, heading into a Week 15 matchup with the struggling Miami defense.

Gronkowski caught 7-of-12 targets for 98 yards in Sunday's 26-21 loss at Green Bay.

Gronkowski made several difficult catches in traffic, and nearly scored at one point on a reception in the red zone, getting dragged down near the goal line, after he had broken a couple of tackles. Despite not scoring, Gronkowski led the Patriots in targets and yardage, while tying Julian Edelman in receptions. Next week, Gronkowski will face a Chargers' defense that has defended opposing TEs well this season.

Gronkowski caught five of 10 targets for 78 yards in Sunday's 34-9 win over the Lions.

Though he didn't find the end zone Sunday, Gronkowski continues to see plenty of targets in the Patriots' offense and thus remains a fantasy lineup lock, as long as he stays healthy.

Gronkowski caught 4-of-5 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-20 win over the Colts.

Gronkowski mostly had a slow receiving night while the Patriots deployed a run-heavy gameplan, but the star tight end came up with one of his typical tackle-breaking touchdowns to put the game away with under seven minutes remaining. The 26-yard scoring strike provided a huge boost to his stat line, capping off a game largely spent as a run blocker. The Patriots have a tough Week 12 matchup with the excellent Lions defense, but it's hard to bet against Gronkowski in any situation.

Gronkowski had another big game in Sunday's 43-21 win against Denver, catching 9-of-10 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown.

Gronkowski was a force, especially at one sequence in the second half, making a spectacular one-handed catch to place the ball near the goal line. On the next play, he easily scored on a quick slant, as he was no match for the linebacker trying to cover him. Over the last two games, Gronkowski has been virtually unstoppable, grabbing 18-of-19 targets for 254 yards and four touchdowns. Make sure to get him back in your lineup in Week 11, after New England's bye.

Gronkowski caught all nine of his targets for 149 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 51-23 win over the Bears.

A bout of dehydration after his third-quarter touchdown ended the tight end's afternoon, but prior to that he looked as healthy and dominant as he has all season. Assuming his continued good health, Gronkowski is automatic fantasy start, excluding the Patriots' Week 10 bye.

Gronkowski caught 5-of-10 targets for 68 yards in Thursday's 27-25 win over the Jets.

Gronkowski uncharacteristically dropped a pass, but he's back to looking like his usual self, which can also be said of both Tom Brady and the New England offensive line. While it's rather surprising that Brady tossed three touchdowns without one going to his star tight end, there should be some big weeks ahead for the prolific duo. Assuming he stays healthy, Gronkowski should be one of the three or four best options at his position week in and week out.

Gronkowski caught seven passes (on nine targets) for 94 yards in Sunday's 37-22 win over the Bills.

Per the Boston Globe, Gronkowski had a bit of an injury scare with his surgically-repaired left arm in the game, but he returned to action not long thereafter. Assuming no further injury setbacks, Gronkowski is in line to remain heavily-involved in the Patriots' passing attack going forward, and should thus remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.

Gronkowski (knee) caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Sunday's 43-17 win over the Bengals.

Gronkowski played the majority of New England's snaps, even staying in a blowout deep into the fourth quarter. His snaps and role have been trending in the right direction, and the same can now be said of his team's offense. With the offensive line looking much improved, Tom Brady honed in on his tight ends Sunday night, allowing Tim Wright to add a 5-85-1 receiving line to Gronkowski's production. Next week's matchup with the Bills is tricky, but a healthy Gronkowski is always worth starting.

Gronkowski (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Gronkowski was on the field for 31-of-50 snaps on offense this past Monday against the Chiefs, but a week of fully practicing could foreshadow an increased role for the tight end on Sunday.
