Patriots coach Bill Belichick confirmed that Rob Gronkowski has been cleared by doctors and is not being placed on active/PUP list.
Gronkowski has been a walking injury the last couple of seasons, but has managed to be cleared for contact for the start of training camp. When healthy, Gronkowski gives Jimmy Graham a run for his money for the top tight end in all of football and if able to stay on the field in 2014 makes for a great bounce back candidate in this year's drafts, despite still carrying a pretty hefty price tag.

Luc Mbah a Moute will start at SF for the Clippers on Monday.
If fantasy owners want to use Mbah a Moute this season, this might be their only chance, as he is getting a rare spot start at small forward for the Clips on Monday night. He offers little upside as a scorer, however he is a solid rebounder and above-average defender, so he might get the job done for fantasy owners in a bind. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Kenneth Faried will start Monday against the Bucks.
Faried should be started in all fantasy formats, now that he has been given the green light to start by both the coaching and medical staffs. He proved off the bench in his last outing that he can post fantasy worthy production in even limited minutes, so his prospects should be good as a starter on Monday night against the Bucks.

Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
