Rob Gronkowski has suspension lifted on Tuesday

Rob Gronkowski's suspension was lifted Tuesday, but the Patriots now have a roster exemption for the tight end, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. With the exemption at their disposal, the Patriots have until Saturday to release a player in order to open up a spot on the 53-man roster.

Fantasy Impact

Gronkowski will be needed on Sunday as the Patriots take on the Steelers. But it won't be an easy day for Gronk. Pittsburgh is allowing only 6.4 YPT and an NFL-low two touchdowns to tight ends this season. But expect the Patriots to get him involved and he is still a must-start in all leagues.

Rob Gronkowski's suspension upheld

The NFL has denied Rob Gronkowski's appeal of his one-game suspension, according to Adam Schefter. He will miss this week's game against Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Unfortunately, this wasn't an unexpected development, as Gronkowski's cheap shot was generally seen to warrant a suspension. This obviously leaves fantasy owners in a lurch for the first week of the playoffs, so they should be sure to check the waiver wire and put in a claim for any tight end available who has a good matchup in Week 14.

Rob Gronkowski suspended 1 game for late hit

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting the NFL has suspended New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski for violating the league’s unnecessary roughness policy.

Fantasy Impact

As expected Gronkowski is suspended for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. However, although he will appeal the ban, I wouldn’t expect it to be overturned. Dwayne Allen will be the Patriots TE1 in Gronk’s anticipated absence.

Rob Gronkowski catches nine passes in Week 13

Rob Gronkowski caught nine of 11 targets for 147 yards in Sunday's 23-3 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

The catches and yards on Sunday were season bests for Gronkowski who was relied on heavily in the second half on third down throws. Gronkowski did get penalized for spearing a Bills player on the ground in the fourth quarter. It was a bit of a cheap shot and Gronk could get suspended for a game. Keep an eye on updates over the week on how the league handles the infraction.

Rob Gronkowski catches two touchdown passes against Dolphins

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-8 targets for 82 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Gronkowski had a big day after two straight games of being held out of the end zone with just seven catches. The veteran tight end is a must-start every week as he is capable of games like Sunday whenever he steps on the field.
