Normally Rob Gronkowski would be far and away the No.1 fantasytight end for Week 11 based on the matchup with San Francisco. However, Gronkowski reportedly suffered a punctured lung in Sunday night’s game against Seattle, putting his playing status for this week up in the air.

Even if Gronk does play this week, his snaps figure to be limited at best, and the likelihood is the Patriots won’t need him to beat the 49ers. So with Gronk out of the running, who is the No. 1 tight end in Week 11 and how much does Martellus Bennett benefit from his teammate’s misfortune?
