Gronkowski reeled in all eight of his targets, amassing 107 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 loss to Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski investors rejoiced as the veteran tight end hit 100 receiving yards for the second time this season, also logging his second touchdown since Week 1 during New England's road trip to Miami. Serving on prevent defense on the game's final play, however, he failed to bring down Kenyan Drake near the goal line, stumbling at the most inopportune moment as Drake pushed across the pylon to cap a 69-yard score, securing a miraculous upset for the Dolphins. The Patriots may be forced to reconsider late-game defensive packages as result of Gronkowski's error, but in terms of his offensive contributions, tying a season-high with eight targets is an extremely encouraging development as the Patriots head into a Week 15 matchup against Pittsburgh, and a defense that's been below average at containing opposing tight ends this year. The Steelers surrendered 5.3 catches per game to tight ends entering the weekend (bottom 10), and allowed the comparably elite Travis Kelce to explode for 109 receiving yards and two touchdowns when trying to defend him in Week 2.

Gronkowski (ankle/back) has been removed from the Patriots' Week 14 injury report, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

For the second week in a row, the Patriots' injury list is streamlined by their standards, with just two players (Dwayne Allen and Patrick Chung) listed as limited Thursday. Gronkowski has caught three passes in each of his last four games and has logged just two touchdowns through nine contests overall, but the tight end's high snap count and steady involvement in the Patriots passing game give him a decent weekly fantasy floor, even if he isn't racking up stats as gaudy as past years.

Gronkowski (ankle/back) was limited at practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski was on the field for all but one of the Patriots' 74 snaps on offense in Week 13's win over the Vikings and with no reported setbacks in that game, we assume his Wednesday limitations were maintenance-related. Gronkowski has caught three passes in each of his last four games and has just two TDs in nine contests, numbers below his usual high standards. That said, Gronkowski's high snap count and steady involvement in the New England offense give him a respectable weekly fantasy floor at the volatile tight end position.

Gronkowski caught three of four targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Although Gronkowski finished third on the team in targets behind Julian Edelman and James White, his four looks were hardly enough to allow him to move the needle. He took a couple of hard hits and appeared hampered at times, but he stayed in the game to help see out the win. Gronkowski appeared to be rounding into form with 56 yards and a score last week, making this performance a bit of a disappointment for fantasy owners anticipating a similar effort. He was facing a rather tough matchup and will look to bounce back against the Dolphins next Sunday.

Gronkowski (ankle/back) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski was on the field for 69 of the Patriots' 70 offensive snaps in the team's Week 12 win over the Jets, so it's not especially surprising that he ended up removed from the team's injury report to close out the week. We'll assume that the tight end's limitations Thursday were maintenance-related and as such expect him to be busy once again this weekend, on the heels of hauling in three of his seven targets for 56 yards and a TD last Sunday.

Gronkowski (ankle/back) was limited at practice Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is notable since Gronkowski was a full participant Wednesday, but we suspect that the change is the result of managing his practice reps, rather than indicative of a setback. We'll let you know if that ends up being otherwise.

Gronkowski is not listed on the Patriots' Week 13 injury report, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski has been an injury report regular of late, but after playing 69 of a possible 70 snaps on offense in Week 12's win over the Jets, the star tight end is (on paper) as healthy as he's been for a while. He's therefore an easy player to slot into Week 13 fantasy lineups, with no injuries clouding either his status or projected workload in Sunday's contest versus the Vikings.

Gronkowski (back/ankle) caught three of seven targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski looked effective in his first game action since Oct. 29, hauling in a 34-yard touchdown late in the first quarter. His seven targets led the team, but Gronk finished third behind wide receivers Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon in both catches and yards. The oft-injured tight end is still a strong fantasy play when he's able to suit up, so deploy him if he's playing in Week 13 against the Vikings.

Gronkowski (back/ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski, who last suited up Oct. 29 against the Bills, is back Sunday as expected, no doubt aided by the added healing time he was afforded by the Patriots' Week 11 bye. His only TD through seven games played to date happened all the way back in Week 1, but so long as the star tight end avoids any setbacks, he's a candidate to garner some red zone looks from QB Tom Brady (knee/illness) in Week 12.

Though Gronkowski (back/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, he plans to play this weekend, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. "Definitely ready to get back there. I'm good to go," Gronkowski relayed Friday after practice. "I'm excited to be back out there with the team, and excited to get back out there on Sundays and play some ball."

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski , who was aided by added healing time afforded by the Patriots' Week 11 bye, leaves little doubt that he's on track to suit up this weekend. That said, given his official injury designation, it will still be worth confirming his status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.
