Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
An aging Gronk with a year away from football is a mixed bag. I bet he'll be rusty and there are a lot of mouths to feed, but his size and athleticism could be used quite a bit.Fant was TE16 as a rookie, and Denver's offense is about to explode. His athleticism could be a big part of it, and slides him inside my top-15.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Because of his star status, Gronkowski will likely be overvalued in 2020 fantasy drafts by owners who overlook the fact that he sat out all of last season and was far from his dominant self when he last suited up in 2018. With wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin likely to remain the top two targets in Tampa Bay's passing game, 2020 expectations for Gronk should be tempered.Kyle Rudolph caught 83 passes on 132 targets in 2016 with Pat Shurmur as Minnesota's tight ends coach for the first seven games and then offensive coordinator for the final nine. Evan Engram caught 89 passes on 132 targets in 19 games over Shurmur's two years as the Giants' head coach. Expect Fant to take on a big role with Shurmur in as Denver's new offensive coordinator.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Bucs added Fournette, and I was already worried about snap counts/volume with Gronk. Down slightly. 
Kevin Tompkins
Fighting Chance Fantasy
 It's difficult to assess a true breakout for Fant in 2020. He didn't establish an immediate rapport with Drew Lock, and now there's more mouths to feed in the Denver offense. He's a bench stash in 2020 for me. I feel more comfortable with him as a TE2 to see if he can realize some of the upside for 2020 versus being my starting tight end.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The fact that Tom Brady won't have a full offseason with his new receivers, you have to wonder if he'll gravitate towards his old friend Gronkowski. During Gronkowski's career, he posted top-five-type numbers in 40.9 percent of his games, which is easily the best of all-time. In fact, the closest tight end, Travis Kelce, has posted those numbers in 31.6 percent of his games. While Gronkowski isn't the young stud he once was, but he should be a consistent presence while on the field with Brady.It was a successful rookie year for Fant. So many fantasy players have seemingly forgotten it typically takes a few years for tight ends to become someone you can rely on. He saw 66 targets his rookie year and ranked 15th in expected fantasy points among tight ends. The discerning part is that he didn't tally more than four targets in any game with Drew Lock. In fact, he averaged just 2.8 targets per game with him, while averaging 4.7 targets per game with the other quarterbacks. We've now watched the Broncos add three talented pass-catching options in Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Melvin Gordon this offseason, which won't help his target share go up. On top of that, they selected Okwuegbunam in the fourth round, who happens to be Lock's old college tight end who he loved targeting in the red zone. Fant is still the top tight end on this team, but I cannot say he's a lock to see 70-plus targets in 2020. That puts him outside the starting tight end territory, and knowing his ceiling might be around 80-85 targets, I would probably look elsewhere in the TE10-15 range for someone with true breakout potential.
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
We all want Gronk of old, but I am tempering expectations until I see it play out. I love him early in the season more than late seasonIf Denver's new look offense is truly a "pick your poison" type affair, Fant would likely share targets among Jeudy, Sutton, Gordon but the key is Drew Lock for now. I love Fant more in dynasty then I do in Redraft
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Gronk is officially back and the NFL is better for it. But is he a great fantasy option? I'm not so sure. First off, he'll have to compete with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin for targets. Secondly, Gronk has always been an injury risk which is never something you want to invest too much in. I love his TD upside but don't see him being used a ton between the 20's. He's a low-end TE1 and I'd draft a late-round backup in case of injury.Like most rookie TE's, Fant wasn't very productive as a rookie but when given the opportunity, he showed legitimate breakout talent. Now, as he enters year two in the NFL, expect him to be more involved in the offense, especially in the red-zone.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
At his peak, Gronkowski was likely the greatest tight end of all time. But after a year off, fantasy manager can't expect him to simply return to his peak self, especially since he hasn't played a full season in nearly a decade. With his immense talent and back with Tom Brady, Gronkowski should still be drafted a TE1, but don't expect a full season of health or a return of the Gronk of old. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gronk should see plenty of targets in this offense, but he's going to need to be incredibly productive from a touchdown standpoint to elevate himself into the top-10 TE conversation. He certainly can do it, but he's a risky pick with his injury history and TD dependency.Fant was a great streaming option in a few matchups last season, but he certainly has more competition for targets now in Denver this season. Fant has the talent to be a true fantasy star, but he may just not see enough target volume to be a consistent option week in and week out. He should finish towards the TE1 range, but it might just be on the back of a few games here or there.

The Fantasy First Down
Gronk is back baby! The former Patriots stud has followed Tom Brady to Tampa Bay and will be looking to recapture some of the magic that made him a fantasy superstar. While he has massive weekly upside, it's fair to suggest he'll fall well below Chris Godwin and Mike Evans in the pecking order. His extensive injury history is also a massive concern but there's no doubt Gronkowski will always have enormous upside and he's the kind of gamble you should take if you're hoping to win your league (as opposed to avoiding losing it). His 8th round price tag is a little inflated by his name but if he falls in drafts, he's well worth snapping up.How is Noah Fant's ADP as high as TE8 on some sites?! Stop it right now! Do not consider taking him in the 6th or 7th round, wait until the double digit rounds and then you can consider him for his round 1 streaming appeal. Fant is a very talented player but Drew Lock doesn't want to give him the ball. Now the Broncos have added Jeudy, Hamler, Gordon and Albert O but Fant's going above Higbee? This has got to stop. He's a streaming TE, dynasty stash, and team name inspiration, that's where the hype train should end.

Huge TD upside with Red Zone familiarity with Brady on a team that shouldn't punt all too often in 2020. Yardage ceiling feels capped with the bevy of receiving talent here.Flashed elite athleticism and a solid rapport w/ Drew Lock. Inconsistent hands need to be improved upon

Gronk has come out of retirement after one season, he is still a TE1 playing with QB Tom Brady, but do not expect Gronk in his prime numbers with both players well past their prime years.Fant had 550 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns in his rookie campaign, despite playing with 3 starting quarterbacks. He could be a TE1 sleeper in 2020, if QB Drew Lock can stay healthy.
