Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will play today

It was reported yesterday and it has been confirmed today: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski @RobGronkowski will be active and will play this afternoon against the Dolphins. It will be Gronkowski's first game activity since Week 11 due to a fractured forearm. He is scheduled to play a limited number of snaps in the game. What that number is, it's anybody's guess.

Fantasy Analysis:

But let's just say Gronk gets in on 20-30 plays. He is so good, and the crop of quality TEs is so thin, I think you have to play him if you don't have someone such as Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten, Aaron Hernandez or Owen Daniels already in your lineup. Gronkowski and the Patriots play in a late afternoon game, but the Pats will still most likely play to win, meaning they will have their full cast of usual characters out there for the duration against Miami. FFToolbox has moved Gronk up to No. 6 in the tight end rankings, and I think that is a realistic call.
