Andrew Seifter

 It's been a disappointing start to the season for Gronkowski, but he has shown signs of life over the last two weeks and remains an obvious must-start option at a weak position. Gronk hasn't scored since Week 1, but that could change this week as he faces off with a Bears D that has given up a TD to a tight end in four straight games.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Thomas followed a Herculean start with a pair of tamer four-catch games. He might face a similarly mild result against the Ravens, the NFL's second-best passing with the fewest standard fantasy points allowed per game (16.5) to wideouts. Nobody is benching a stud with a 93.9 catch percentage (46-of-49) and 103.8 yards per game, but he merely falls a couple spots down the rankings and outside the realm of DFS consideration. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thomas is going against the 6th ranked fantasy receiver defense, but he is a matchup proof WR1 coming off his bye playing with QB Drew Brees. The Bears are 23rd against fantasy tight ends, hopefully Gronk can build on the strong fourth quarter he had against the Kansas City Chiefs.
