  • Rob Gronkowski Sees Eight Targets

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski had another terrific performance in Week 7, getting five receptions for 62 yards and a score on eight targets. Gronk is starting to look like himself and that's encouraging for fantasy managers. The big tight end has now scored a touchdown in two straight games. He has also seen at least six targets in the past three games and has gotten over 52 yards in those games as well. Gronk is definitely in the starting conversation going forward.

  • Rob Gronkowski A Low-End TE1 For Sunday Night

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski is a low-end TE1 for this week's clash against the Raiders. Gronk had his best game of 2020 last week, posting five receptions for 78 yards and a score on eight targets. This was an encouraging performance by the veteran, one that may have instilled hope in managers because he looked his dominant New England version. The Raiders are middle-of-the-pack in points allowed to fantasy TEs, which means Gronk is a good streaming option this week.

  • Rob Gronkowski Paces Team In Receiving Yards

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski put together another strong outing. Gronkowski caught five of a team-high eight targets for 78 receiving yards and a touchdown. His 12-yard score made it a 28-10 game at the half and Tampa Bay never looked back. That makes two straight games with at least 50 receiving yards, which certainly counts for something with how muddled the fantasy landscape is at the tight end position. If Gronkowski can continue to hold off Cameron Brate, he could potentially enter the back-end TE1 conversation, though there is always the risk of getting burnt by him.

  • Rob Gronkowski A Touchdown-Dependent Option

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski will face off with the Packers in Week 6. Green Bay has been a tricky matchup for opposing tight ends, as they've allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. Gronkowski saw the same amount of targets as fellow tight end Cameron Brate in Week 5, but played 80 percent of the snaps compared to Brate's 46 percent. At this point, you're hoping for a touchdown if you start Gronkowski, which hasn't happened yet this season. He's a mid-range TE2 at best for Week 6.

  • Rob Gronkowski Gets 52 Yards

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski grabbed three receptions for 52 yards on six targets during the Week 5 loss to the Bears. With the Tampa WRs injured, Gronk stepped up and posted his most yards of the season so far. Whether the tight end can keep up this production when the receivers are healthy remains to be seen. Nevertheless, Gronk's fantasy value should linger around that of a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 most weeks.

  • Rob Gronkowski A Low-End TE1 For Thursday

    Despite not putting up the numbers fantasy managers have become accustomed to, there is some fantasy value for Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski in Week 5. With the Bucs dealing with wideout injuries across the board, Gronk could see more targets come his way. Chris Godwin and Justin Watson will not be playing and both Mike Evans and Scotty Miller are hobbled. This means Tom Brady could be throwing the ball to his old buddy more often. The Bears are more lenient against tight ends than wideouts, as they are middle-of-the-pack in points allowed to fantasy TEs. There is some risk here considering Gronk has had only one good game so far during the season (Week 3, six receptions, seven targets, 48 yards), but there is that chance he will see more production simply because the wide receivers are all injured.

  • Rob Gronkowski Manages One Catch Against Chargers

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski caught just one pass for 29 yards in a 38-31 win over the Chargers. Gronkowski was essentially invisible as a receiver all day, as Tampa Bay turned him back into the blocker they said they would. The veteran tight end has been a complete non-factor in three of four games this year and is extremely hard to trust right now, especially if you bought into his usage from Week 3. With that being said, the injury to O.J. Howard (Achilles) could be serious, which would almost send some targets Gronkowski's way by default.

  • Rob Gronkowski Could Put Up TE1 Numbers

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski will face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4. Gronkowski is coming off his best performance of the season, as he out-snapped fellow tight end O.J. Howard and saw a season-high seven targets, turning them into six catches for 48 yards. The Chargers rank 14th in the league in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, so they're not unbeatable. When you consider that Tampa Bay will be without Chris Godwin (hamstring) and potentially Scotty Miller (hip, groin) too, there could be a lot of targets available to Gronkowski. It feels weird after some bumps in the road, but look at the veteran tight end as a high-end TE2/low-end TE1 this week.

  • Rob Gronkowski Gets 48 Yards

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski finally showed some semblance of himself in Week 3's win, seeing seven targets and getting six receptions for 48 yards. Gronk finally had a bit of meaningful production this week after only seeing four targets, two receptions, and 11 yards in the first two weeks. The tight end's name holds more fantasy value at this point. He should be considered more of a TE2 for now, at least until he shows some consistency in his numbers.

  • Rob Gronkowski Better Off On The Bench In Week 3

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski is better left on the bench for the Week 3 matchup against the Broncos. Through two games, QB Tom Brady's old pal has only seen four targets and converted it to 11 yards total. While Gronk can be a game-changing player, he hasn't proved that he can be trusted yet in fantasy for this season. It's best to find other options for this week.

  • Bruce Arians Not Surprised By Rob Gronkowski's Slow Start

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said he's "not really" surprised that tight end Rob Gronkowski has just four targets in the first two games of the season. His lone target in the Week 2 win over the Panthers was intercepted. "We're not throwing the ball 50 times to the tight ends. That's what we have receivers for, that's the way our offense is built. Gronk's playing great run blocking in the fourth quarter, so I'm not concerned with his pass catches or his targets," Arians said. The 31-year-old is competing with a lot of aerial playmakers in Tampa, so he won't see close to the target share he saw in his prime with Tom Brady in New England. And as long as Gronk continues to block well, he may only get a handful of looks per game. He's become a low-end TE2 that's droppable in shallow leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski Held Without A Catch

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski was targeted once but didn't record a catch in a 31-17 win over Carolina. It was incredibly disappointing for fantasy managers to see, especially considering there were vacated targets with Chris Godwin (head) sitting out. Gronkowski has looked like someone who's been away from football after two games, as he's mustered just four targets in two contests. At this point, fantasy managers should begin looking for tight end help on the waiver wire, if they haven't already. Gronkowski obviously has the talent to bounce back, but his days as an every-week, elite TE1 are clearly over.

  • Rob Gronkowski Needs To Score To Return Value

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski will face off with the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. Gronkowski played 54 snaps to O.J. Howard's 37, though he caught just two of three targets for 11 yards in Week 1. Tom Brady actually looked Howard's way more frequently, so Gronkowski probably needs to score a touchdown if he's not producing as much outside of the red zone. It's also possible that Tampa Bay goes with a two-tight end set more frequently in Week 2 if Chris Godwin (head) is out, giving Gronkowski and Howard more looks. At any rate, the veteran tight end is looking like a touchdown-dependent TE1/2 for Week 2.

  • Rob Gronkowski Musters 11 Yards In Week 1

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski had a very modest debut with his new team, only getting two receptions on three targets for 11 yards. This was a bit shocking considering Gronk and Tom Brady have years of chemistry, but it seems Week 1 was more about shaking off the rust and the team getting in sync. Gronk may not always be a factor each week considering the Bucs have plenty of talented pass-catchers, but he should remain a low TE1 considering his rich history of success with Brady and ability to be a huge playmaker.

  • Rob Gronkowski A Low-End TE1 In Week 1

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski should be considered a low-end TE1 for this week's matchup against the Saints. The talented tight end will be playing his first game since the 2018 Super Bowl, which was over one and a half years ago. Naturally, he may be shaking off some rust. Though it's a plus playing on a high-powered offense with his old quarterbackTom Brady, the Saints only allowed the 23rd-most fantasy points to TEs last season, making this first matchup a challenging one for Gronk.

  • Rob Gronkowski Impresses During Training Camp

    Though he may have been out of the NFL for a year, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski sure hasn't showed any signs of falling behind in training camp. Per ESPN, coach Bruce Arians has stated the talented player has had some time to heal and is playing like he was back in the heart of his Patriots days. Gronk has spent the past year recovering from all the hits his body has taken throughout the years and has started to adjust to playing again. Already having chemistry with QB Tom Brady helps the TE's case, but he will need to continue to impress if he wants to take away targets from other talented pass-catchers on the team like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin during the season. Gronkowski can be considered a low TE1 heading into 2020.

  • Rob Gronkowski Without Elbow Brace In Training Camp

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians sees a difference in tight end Rob Gronkowski in practice. He isn't stiff, is moving well and "doesn't have a gigantic elbow brace on." Gronk retired in 2018 after another Super Bowl victory because his body was telling him it was done. But perhaps the time off rejuvenated the future Hall of Fame tight end. Gronkowski said he also has a better understanding of his body and is working consistently on prolonging his career by making healthier choices. He said the game felt fast to him in his first few days back, but now it's slowing down. Gronk's fantasy ceiling may be lower than usual with O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate still in the picture, but he'll at least be a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners.

  • Rob Gronkowski Adjusting To Florida Heat

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is returning to the NFL after an 18-month hiatus, is struggling a bit in training camp in the Florida heat. "He's probably in New England shape, but he's not in Florida shape. That humidity and heat's kicking his a-- pretty good," head coach Bruce Arians said. We wouldn't read too much into it, as Gronk is still one of the most physically imposing tight ends in the league, even if he has lost a step or two. And he still has four weeks to get into better shape before the start of the regular season. Gronkowski reunites with Hall of Fame lock Tom Brady and should be seen as a low-end TE1, but the presence of O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate will keep Gronk's ceiling lower than it's been in the past.
