2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Gronk turned in a limited practice so he is trending upward from his recent knee issue. He is still listed as questionable so there is a chance that he plays. For now, we have him listed as out. Due to his high price point and possible risky playing time if he somehow plays, he would be only a gamble and Fantasy owners really won't know his true status until eight pm on Sunday night.
UPDATE (Nov. 11): Gronkowski is the consensus No. 1 tight end and it isn't close. If he's playing, the 26-year-old should be in your starting lineup.
The Patriots were finally able to have a healthy Gronkowski in the Super Bowl, which was a big reason why they won. Rob caught six of 10 targets for 68 yards and a TD against Seattle. During the playoffs, he recorded 16 catches for 204 yards and scored in each of New England's three postseason games. Over the first month of the regular season, Gronkowski averaged only 35 snaps per game as he was still working his way back from a December ACL tear. He gained 147 yards through the first four games and caught just 50 percent of his 26 targets. Over his next 11 games, Rob caught 69 passes for 1,017 yards and nine touchdowns. His catch rate increased to 65.7 percent. If he's healthy for a full season, he projects to have about 100 catches, 1,479 yards and 13 TDs. Rob is a solid 20-points-per-game fantasy player who has scored 54 touchdowns in 54 career starts. Gronk is the best tight end in the league and it's not close. He'll enter the 2015 season with clean bill of health.

|1.10||RotoExperts/FNTSY @allinkid - It's Gronk! There is no way I could pass on Gronkowski in a PPR league at pick 10. The edge he gives you is invaluable, and I was surprised he actually lasted this long. (Comments Added Thu Aug 6 4:05:48 p.m. ET 2015)|
