Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is a full-go for the start of training camp. "No limits that I'm aware of," HC Bill Belichick said. Gronk participated in spring workouts and has had a smooth recovery from December back surgery. He remains an elevated injury risk but is also still the clear top TE in fantasy football whenever he's on the field. Plus, he's cheaper than he's been in a while, going in the late 2nd round of 12-team PPR drafts.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was on the field for Thursday's OTA session, hauling in a TD from Tom Brady. Gronk, coming off December surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back, deemed himself "ready to roll" back in April. And the Pats letting him participate in OTAs means they're comfortable with his status. Durability remains a concern for Gronkowski, but he'll be healthy heading to training camp.

The Patriots and TE Rob Gronkowski have agreed on a restructured contract for the 2017 season. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Gronk will earn $6.75 million if he reaches 70% of the offensive snaps, 60 receptions, 800 receiving yards or 10 TDs this season.? He'll get $8.75 million if he plays 80% of the snaps, catches 70 balls, tallies 1,000 receiving yards or scores 12 TDs. And getting to 90% of the snaps, 80 catches, 1,200 receiving yards or All-Pro honors would net him $10.75 million. For reference, Gronkowski's career highs in each category are 91.2% of snaps, 90 catches, 1,327 yards and 17 TDs. He's been named All-Pro 4 times. Extra monetary motivation certainly doesn't hurt his 2017 fantasy outlook. Gronk is as cheap as he's been in a long time, with an ADP currently sitting in the late 2nd round.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said Sunday that he'll be "ready to roll" for the start of the offseason program. That was a few hours before he did this at Wrestlemania -- an appearance we're sure was fully endorsed by the Pats. Gronk is 4 months removed from surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back. It's unclear how much the team will let him do in spring workouts, but he's certainly on track to be a full-go when fantasy owners need him.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said Friday that he has "no doubt" he'll be ready for Week 1. He underwent surgery in December to repair a herniated disc in his back. It was his 3rd back surgery -- the 1st coming in 2009, the 2nd in 2013. It's still unclear how much Gronk will be able to do this offseason. Despite the durability problems, he remains fantasy football's #1 TE. We're curious to see where he'll go in 2017 drafts.

Injury Predictor

Gronk should have the wing of a hospital named after him. He’s had major and multiple surgeries on his forearm, back and knee the past several years. And he has missed 22 regular games (excluding playoffs) the past 5 seasons because of injuries. He’ll be someone to keep an eye on this summer as he recovers from his third back surgery — an injury that forced him to miss half the 2016 NFL regular season.
