As of 5 pm Saturday, Pats TE Rob Gronkowski still had not been cleared by doctors to play Sunday vs. Saints without clearance, he will not play.
It's clear Gronkowski will be out tomorrow. This will limit Brady's upside from a fantasy perspective. Expect Amendola to receive a lot of targets.

This comes as a major disappointment for those who were banking on Gronkowski making his season debut against the Saints on Sunday night. Gronkowski had established a return date of Week 6 following the Patriots Week 2 win over the Jets, but that is clearly not the case. Fantasy owners will want to have a backup plan, and fast, with kickoff a little over 12 hours away.
