It's notable that Gronkowski is practicing fully at this stage of the week, after previously being listed as limited. Gronkowski was on the field for 31-of-50 snaps on offense this past Monday, but his full participation at practice Wednesday could foreshadow the tight end seeing a higher percentage of snaps Sunday night against the Bengals.

Gronkowski was limited at Saturday's practice for the third straight day, but the "probable" designation means he should be good to go for Monday night. It's not certain how much Gronkowski will play this week, but he saw 44 snaps in Week 3 after receiving just 38 and 27 in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively.

2013

Gronkowski was putting up historically good numbers for the second year in a row when a broken forearm derailed him in Week 11. He missed the next five games before returning Week 17 only to break his arm again in the divisional round of the playoffs. He ultimately required four arm surgeries, as an infection complicated matters. When healthy Gronkowski was easily the league's best tight end. He averaged 13.2 fantasy points per game in standard formats, tops among tight ends and third among all receivers, and his 11 receiving touchdowns ranked fourth among all receivers – this despite playing only 11 games. At 6-6, 265, Gronkowski is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. Using his size, Gronkowski can cut inside or out, shielding the defender from making a legal play on the ball. As a result he's made several highlight-reel diving catches in the end zone of which few tight ends are capable. Gronkowski's 17 red-zone targets last year were second among tight ends to Heath Miller, who had only three more despite playing four more games. The bottom line: Gronkowski's health is the only thing capable of slowing him down, and it just might as he also had back surgery in mid-June that typically requires a 12-week recovery, putting his return date sometime in September. As a result, there's a decent chance Gronkowski misses a game or two, and it's even possible the team places him on the PUP list, forcing him to sit out the season's first six weeks.

2012

Although he shared targets with Aaron Hernandez (124-113), Gronkowski posted the best statistical season for a tight end in NFL history. His 1,327 receiving yards were not only the most ever by a tight end but were sixth overall in the league last season. His 18 touchdowns – 17 receiving and one rushing – were also a single-season record for the position. Hernandez turned in a noteworthy season himself and actually was targeted by Tom Brady more often in the red zone (25-24) and a surprising 10 more times inside the 10-yard line (17-7) than Gronkowski, all while playing two fewer games. At 6-6, 260 and with great hands, Gronkowski snared 73 percent of his targets, tops among qualified tight ends. He also benefited from running the tight end routes in the Patriots offense, as opposed to Hernandez’s usual underneath routes, which gave Gronkowski a distinct advantage up the seam against undersized linebackers and safeties. That, and a brutal stiff arm, allowed him to post a position-high 22 catches of 20-plus yards. Gronkowski, who averaged 10.7 yards per target, got stronger as the season wore on. Over the final nine regular season games, he totaled 77 targets, 12 receiving touchdowns and 832 receiving yards.A couple possible hiccups loom, however. The most obvious is the ankle injury he suffered in the playoffs. He underwent ankle surgery in early February and was in a walking boot through April. He’s expected to be ready for the season, though the injury should be monitored in training camp. Perhaps more significant is the Patriots’ addition of Brandon Lloyd, which likely will cost Gronkowski looks. And, of course, Hernandez is still around, vying for tight-end targets.

2011

New England drafted two tight ends last season – Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez – which worked out well for the Patriots but made things difficult for fantasy owners. Gronkowski finished with 10 touchdowns, tied for the best mark at the position, though three scores (and 156 yards) came in the final two games when he got extra targets because Hernandez was sidelined. Gronkowski and Hernandez negated each other's value for much of the season as both were used interchangeably. Gronkowski had a monster game Week 10 at Pittsburgh with three touchdowns and 72 receiving yards, but also had seven scoreless weeks with no more than 25 yards receiving. Gronkowski received 16 red-zone targets in 16 games to Hernandez's 10 in 14 games. Should Hernandez go down with injury an again, Gronskowski's value would soar. Tom Brady likes to look for his tight end near the goal line (the duo combined for 16 targets inside the 10), and that would benefit the 6-6, 265-pound Gronkowski, who is also considered the better blocker of the two. With Hernandez healthy, though, Gronkowski will have to settle for splitting targets again this season.

2010

The second tight end taken in the 2010 draft, Gronkowski could emerge as the starter for the Patriots at some point this season. A mammoth target at 6-6, 264, Gronkowski will look to fill the void left by Ben Watson and Chris Baker. Of slight concern is his injury history — he missed 16 games his last two college seasons, including all of 2009 with a back problem. Alge Crumpler likely will begin the year as the starter, mentoring both Gronkowski and fellow rookie Aaron Hernandez. But the rookies have more upside and likely will be utilized in the red zone while Crumpler focuses on blocking.
