Fantasy Impact:

This doesn't come as a huge surprise as Gronkowski has been considering retirement since last off-season. Despite hanging up his cleats before his 30th birthday, Gronk will still go down as the best tight-end of all time, or at least the most dominant. The 2010 second-round draft pick finishes his career with 521 catches, 7861 receiving yards, and 79 receiving touchdowns in 115 games. Had he stayed healthy this whole time there's seemingly no limit to the types of eye-popping numbers he could've put up. Gronk was also a part of multiple championship teams in the latest Patriots' dynasty.
