2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY FALLOUT: NO ROB GRONKOWSKI THURSDAY NIGHT

It was just 24 hours earlier where we learned that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was being listed as questionable for Thursday night's game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Despite traveling with the team to Tampa Bay, Gronkowski reportedly will sit out tonight's game.  While this is just the first missed game of the year for Gronk, it is the second injury he has dealt with already as he was hobbled earlier with a chest problem.  With Gronk out of action tonight, the fallout is that wideouts Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, and Danny Amendola will see a sharper increase in catches.  In particular Hogan stands the best chance of having the biggest night as he already has been a big red zone weapon of QB Tom Brady and that will be even more pronounced with Gronk out.  Also Amendola will likely see a jump in catchers along with Cooks so all three are worth using.  As far as Gronk is concerned, it is same old,. same old.
