Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 Adam Schefter reports Rob Gronkowski (questionable, back/ankle) is "highly unlikely" to play in Week 7 against Chicago.
Tim McCullough

Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Hopkins has been bothered by a foot injury for the past few weeks, but a downgrade to DNP on Thursday suggests he's aggravated the injury. While it's possible the Texans are just trying to manage his reps, DNPs almost always suggest something more serious. Hopkins had a quiet Week 6 game as he played through his foot injury, and Week 7 brings a matchup with Jalen Ramsey. If he does play, we think he will underperform. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Hopkins is battling a foot injury and should be matched up with Jalen Ramsey quite a bit on Sunday, so he has more question marks than usual. Still, we are talking about a receiver who has at least 78 yards or a touchdown in every game this season and has gone over 150 receiving yards in two of the last three weeks. Hopkins is a surefire WR1 every time he takes the field.It's been a disappointing start to the season for Gronkowski, but he has shown signs of life over the last two weeks and remains an obvious must-start option at a weak position. Gronk hasn't scored since Week 1, but that could change this week as he faces off with a Bears D that has given up a TD to a tight end in four straight games.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jaguars have the best fantasy receiver defense in the NFL, Hopkins is more of a WR2 this week. The Bears are 23rd against fantasy tight ends, hopefully Gronk can build on the strong fourth quarter he had against the Kansas City Chiefs.
