2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


The lack of talent at WR hurt the explosiveness of Gronkowski over the last two seasons. He finished with a great TE season (72/1176/11 on 120 targets), but he only caught 60 percent of his chances compared to 72.6 percent in his breakout season in 2011 (90 catches for 1327 yards and 17 TDs on 124 targets). Over 80 games in his career (69 starts), Rob has 76 career TDs with three 1000 yard receiving seasons. He averaged a career-high 16.3 yard per catch in 2015. Over the first nine games last year, Gronk had five 100 yard receiving games and eight TDs. With Edelman out of the lineup, he only had three TDs in six games while averaging 3.8 catches per game for 61.7 yards. Last year Rob wasn't as much of an edge at TE as expected. He scored 251.8 Fantasy point in PPR leagues over 15 games with four other TEs scoring between 222.4 and 237.7 Fantasy points. Of these four, one was a free agent (Gary Barnidge) and two other were drafted after round 10 (Jordan Reed and Delanie Walker). Gronkowski is an impact player with elite scoring ability. His floor is 80 catches for 1100 yards and double digit TDs while offering a much higher ceiling.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
1.12 Brandon Marianne - At the 12 spot, I got the No. 1 player at his position. The tight end position is deep this year, but Gronk?s consistency (especially in a PPR format) is worth it. Since 2011 he?s averaged at least 71.8 yards per game.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
2.01 Fantasy Guru - Tom Brolley - With 7 WRs going in the first round, I decided to look for some value by taking the top TE on the board to start the second round. He’s still far and away the best fantasy TE, and he’s played 30 games the last two years.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
1.10 So-Called Fantasy Experts - David Gonos - Taking Gronk in Round 1 puts you behind in the following rounds, but have faith in your later picks. Four games with a backup QB under center means he'll be targeted more, not less.
