Gronk's Fantasy Outlook
Well, the offseason just got a lot more interesting? Today it was reported that Rob Gronkowski told the Patriots organization that he wanted to continue playing football in Tampa Bay with Tom Brady. Less than an hour later it was official. For a 4th and 7th round pick the Patriots dealt the former all-world tight end to continue his bromance with The GOAT. I love it, and I'm sure Brady does too. His season outlook just keeps getting better and better.
As for Gronk's fantasy impact this season, I think we are looking at a back end tight end one. The days of him being an elite fantasy option are in the rear view mirror. The last time we saw him play he looked like a shell of himself. Since then it looks as if he's lost a good 25-30 pounds. He still has time to get into football shape, but he is also playing in an offense that has a lot of talent around him in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Even though I'm about 90% sure we see O.J. Howard dealt soon, this is still an offense that will funnel first to the wide receivers. My initial thought is I would rank Gronk around the likes of Jared Cook or Austin Hooper for 2020. He won’t get a ton of receptions, but that offense is going to score a lot and his red zone presence could easily produce 10+ touchdowns.
If you are a contending team target Gronk by offering your 3rd round rookie pick. If that doesn’t work, offer your 3rd and 4th. If neither of those attempts work consider offering your 2nd for Gronk and a 3rd.
If you are NOT a contending team try to get a 2nd for him. If that doesn’t work ask for a 2nd for Gronk and your 3rd.
If you are interested in playing year round fantasy football, consider joining a dynasty league. The offseason is just as fun as the regular season. Once you start playing dynasty, redraft leagues will feel like a cake walk.
