Rob Gronkowski not expected to play Patriots have a bye in Week 11 By: Mike Krueger | Nov 10 2018, 10:15 am
Listed as questionable with back and ankle injuries, Rob Gronkowski would not commit to playing tomorrow in Tennessee, calling it a “coach’s decision.”
However, a source indicated that Gronkowski is not expected to suit up against the Titans. The Pats seem to be hoping that some rest in November will allow Gronkowski to recapture his top form down the stretch. (Boston Herald)
FFToday's Take:Gronk has looked slow and lumbering out on the field this year so perhaps some extended rest will do him some good. The Patriots have a bye in Week 11 which would make a Week 12 return against the Jets his next action on the field. That Patriots don't typically target their backup tight ends when Gronk is out, so fantasy owners should look for other options at the position.
