Week 12 Half PPR Rankings
Rob Gronkowski Note

It appears we've lost some of the luster to Gronkowski with all three wide receivers healthy, as he's totaled just 19 targets over the last four games. He's caught just five passes over the last three games, which is certainly now what we want out of our tight end. Will the trend change against the Chiefs? They've allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this year, but it's not as bad as you might think, as tight ends have averaged 3.7 percent more fantasy points against the Chiefs than they have in non-Chiefs matchups. That makes them the 14th-best matchup for tight ends when you adjust for level of competition. There have been five tight ends who've finished as the TE13 or better against them, including six tight ends who've totaled 38-plus yards. They've also allowed a touchdown every 13.0 targets to tight ends, so maybe we see Gronk find his way back into the end zone in this projected high-scoring affair? He should be considered a low-end TE1 with his recent lack of production, though the 56-point total is appealing.
