The 26 year-old Texas alum came out of the gates with TE1 production in hopes of putting his disappointing 2012 season behind him. Finley hauled in 11 catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns during the first two weeks of the season. He suffered a nasty concussion (lost consciousness, memory loss and impaired vision) early in the week three loss to the Bengals and left without a catch. The week four bye came at the right time as Finley returned to practice on Wednesday and appears likely to be in uniform for a potential shootout with Detroit. The Lions defense is allowing 62 yards per game to opposing TEs, but has yet to allow a touchdown through four games.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

Following offseason back and multiple arms surgeries, the Gronk has missed the first four games of the season. Tom Brady has been mediocre with a depleted receiving corps - he has just seven touchdowns through four weeks after averaging 36 touchdowns over the past three seasons. Gronk missed five games last season, but has been a red zone monster when in uniform - totaling 38 touchdowns over three seasons. Zach Sudfeld has been a non-factor in Gronk's absence, as he's yet to a catch pass this season. Reports suggest that Gronkowski is targeting a week six return against New Orleans, so Gronk owners will likely have to look elsewhere for a week 5 starter.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve
