Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gronk got off to a slow start last year as he was working his way back into football shape and he finished the entire season as the TE8. With his involvement in this offense, plus chemistry with Brady, Gronk's a solid bet to return top-10 production for as long as he's still playing. While Howard's return to the lineup might hurt Gronk slightly, it won't be enough to push him outside of the top-15 at the position. You can draft Gronk with confidence again in 2021 as a high-end TE2. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
The old days of Gronk dominating the TE group are over. He played 16 games and had 45 rec 623 yards 7 TDs. The Bucs philosophy is to keep him on a pitch count so he's healthy for the playoffs. They'll use him as a red zone weapon and blocker. The return of OJ Howard, a full year of Antonio Brown, and the addition of Gio Bernard doesn't help. He's pretty much a TD dependent guy at this point. If you're okay with that then take him. Just don't expect him to dominate like he did in New England. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gronk is nowhere near his prime, but he is still a good red zone threat and he can be used as a solid streaming option. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Gronk has finished as a TE1 in five of his last six seasons played, including his Buccaneers' debut in 2020. His long and storied history with Tom Brady plays a major role in value, and the rapport between these two provides Gronk a stable fantasy floor. Still one of the best scorers at his position, he's got top-10 appeal even if OJ Howard is healthy and Antonio Brown plays a full season. He's currently ranked TE15 in the latest ECR, which makes him a wild value later in drafts. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Naturally, we should've expected some rust on Gronkowski after taking a year off football. He was a bit slot out of the gate, but was ultimately able to finish as the No. 8 tight end in 2020. That's not a huge accomplishment or anything, as he still failed to record more than 48 yards in 11-of-16 games, and that's despite Chris Godwin missing time to injury, and Antonio Brown not joining the team until midseason. We also can't forget about O.J. Howard, who had more production and targets than Gronkowski when he tore his Achilles. Gronkowski will certainly offer some streamable weeks, but relying on him as your every-week tight end would be a mistake with all the mouths they have to feed in Tampa Bay. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
There is no doubt that Rob Gronkowski is the NFL's most entertaining TE, but in terms of fantasy, he is far from a top option. Even while scoring seven TDs last year, his reception and yardage numbers were extremely inconsistent. Like most TEs at this point in the draft, Gronk will be highly TD-dependent.Irv Smith Jr. is my breakout TE candidate of the year. Last season he scored five TDs while playing on only 50% of the team's snaps. Now that veteran TE, Kyle Rudolph is in New York, Smith's playing time is going to skyrocket. Kirk Cousins loves targeting TEs near the goal line and I expect Smith to be the recipient of many of those targets.

It took some time for Gronk to shake off the rust but he emerged at the end of last season, culminating with 2 TDs in the Suoer Bowl. Some things just go together; peanut butter & jelly, spaghetti & meatballs, Brady & Gronk.
