In each of the previous two seasons, Gronk has scored at least 90 points more than the 12th best tight end in standard scoring leagues (ie: points above replacement). Zero other players at any position accomplished even one such occurrence in 2015. Don't be shy about drafting a reliable superstar in the middle of the first round this season.

Fantasy Impact: There were different reports on Gronkowski's injury which is not surprising coming from the usually tight lipped Patriots. But it looks like the tight end is back and practicing which is good news for Gronk owners. Do not be surprised if the team avoids playing him in the remaining two preseason games. There is no reason to risk injury before the season starts.

Gronkowski could play on one leg tied behind his back and still end up as the No. 1 fantasy tight end. His dominance over the rest of the field continues to give him value in the first round of drafts as well. The losses around him in the offense and his own injury, had defenses keying on him last year and made him miss a game, but he still dominated the position. You can expect more of the same going forward, as he will have just turned 27 years old going into the 2016 season

In 2015, Rob Gronkowski finished 12th in receiving yards with 1,176. He was the top Tight End in receiving yards. The 4 game suspension of Tom Brady will hurt Gronk's fantasy value. If you want a tight end, wait another round or two.

Not that you need to "AVOID" him, but I am not putting emphasis on him like I have in years past.

He's a proven, class-by-himself 1,000-yard TE with something close to a TD per game when healthy, something he's managed to maintain (for the most part) the past two seasons

Just a total monster that won't quit. Brady possibly missing 4 games might hurt him but overall he's still the top TE.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Jun 15th
Gronk was his typical solid self with 72 receptions for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns. I expect him to be the top-ranked fantasy tight end once again in 2016, even with the 4-game suspension of QB Tom Brady.
