Fantasy Impact: So far, all indications point to Rob Gronkowski playing in Week 1. Gronkowski himself predicted as much, and this type of slow-but-steady progress is encouraging.

Gronk wore a knee brace and did not participate in 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills on Thursday. (Source: Boston.com
Fantasy Impact: Gronk did participate in positional drills and 1-on-1 work with Tom Brady. He was able to cut and plant with no problem, but seemed to struggle accelerating while pushing off his right leg on routes. Although he avoided the PUP list to start camp, Gronk is clearly not 100%. The Patriots are going to ease the TE back into football as he continues to recover from ACL surgery.

Gronkowski, who had surgery to repair his torn ACL in January, has been cleared by team doctors and is not on the Patriot's active/PUP list to start camp. (Source: Albert Breer on Twitter
Fantasy Impact: Avoiding the active/PUP list for the start of camp means Gronk will not be eligible for the reserve/PUP list to start the season. This puts him directly on track to play Week 1. If Gronk can get through camp and into football condition without any setbacks, he'll battle Jimmy Graham for the top TE spot.

Gronkowski is recovering from ACL surgery on January 9th. Last season marked the 2nd straight year his season ended early due to injury. While Gronk said he plans to play the full season, it's very possible he'll be unable to participate at the beginning of training camp. (Source: Mike Reiss
Fantasy Impact: Despite the optimism, Gronkowski's going to be a high upside risk for fantasy owners. He's nearly missed as many games over the past 2 years as he's played. His 3rd round ADP (#30 overall) will be a hefty price tag for anyone drafting him.

When the Patriots added wide receiver Aaron Dobson and others to the PUP list earlier in the week, it was more notable who wasn't on the list: Rob Gronkowski.
Although the Patriots had (and still have) the opportunity to add players to the PUP list before tomorrow's practice, coach Bill Belichick has said that Gronk has been cleared by doctors and won't be placed on the PUP list.

Recently, Rob Gronkowski has been known more for his crazy antics than his football prowess, but hey, you can’t spell, “Patriots,” without the first part of, “Party,” or something like that. He’s also known as the Pats tight end that only murders dance floors. Gronk is a dynamic player that changes defenses when he’s on the field. He’s averaged 14.4 ...

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Is there any position where one player has such advantage over the field more than tight end? Jimmy Graham is, by far, the best option (though a healthy Rob Gronkowski could approach him). That’s not to say that there

Per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Gronk was "bursting, planting, and cutting during the ear...
