Report: Rob Gronkowski will undergo back surgery; timetable unknown

The star tight end's fantasy season is over.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is scheduled to undergo back surgery on Friday after suffering a herniated disk against the Seahawks and the timetable is unknown, per multiple reports.  From a Patriots and NFL perspective, this obviously sucks. The Patriots lose their most dominant offensive player, while the NFL loses one of their star players. From a fantasy football perspective, this means his season is over.

Gronk’s fantasy season ends with 540 yards and 3 touchdowns on 25 receptions, resulting in 97 fantasy points. #ThoughtsandPrayers to everyone who spent their first rounder on the injury-riddled tight end. If you did own him, you probably have a backup. If you do not have a backup and do not own Martellus Bennett, C.J. Fiedorowicz (38% owned), Cameron Brate (65%) and Ladarius Green (14%) are all decent streaming options.

Hopefully Gronk will return in time to lead the Patriots to their 5th Super Bowl title.
