Tight end Rob Gronkowski is out for the season. Gronkowski had back surgery and the Patriots have placed him on injured reserve. That is good news for fantasy football players who have Bennett on their team but bad news for Patriots fans.

Gronkowski has been limited due to injury and has only caught 25 passes this year but for an amazing 21.6 yards per catch average. Gronk is the best tight end in the history of the NFL in my opinion but always seems to be struggling with some injury.

Tom Brady continues his revenge tour and Martellus Bennett is a more than capable replacement now that Gronk is out for the season. Bennett has 42 catches for 540 yards and 4 touchdowns for the Patriots this season. That being said every quarterback dreams of a double tight end combination like Gronk and Bennett on their team.
