Whether or not the Patriots and Rob Gronkowski 's people disagree on his ability to play, this is what his fantasy owners want to know: He won't play Sunday night against the Falcons. He will be joined on the inactive list by wide receiver Danny Amendola as neither player traveled with the team to Atlanta on Saturday.
So, there it is. You no longer have to worry about waiting on Gronk or Amendola this week. But considering both players were able to practice to some extent all week, a Week 5 return looks possible if not probable. With Amendola out, Julian Edelman remains a solid WR3 in PPR leagues. Kenbrell Thompkins is coming off a two-touchdown game, but that looks like an outlier more than anything else. Thompkins hasn't topped four catches or 50 yards in any game this season. Aaron Dobson is even further off my radar, and you definitely shouldn't play tight end Zach Sudfeld.
