Draft note
by John Paulsen
After a slow start, where he averaged 2.3-22 with zero touchdowns on 3.5 targets per game, Gronkowski averaged 3.0-45-0.58 on 5.3 targets per game for the remainder of the season. Unfortunately for Gronk, those four quiet games coincided with O.J. Howard’s four healthy games, where Howard racked up 11 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns (on 19 total targets). With Howard back, it’s possible that the two tight ends cancel each other out.

Scouting report

TB TE Rob Gronkowski - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Rob Gronkowski got off to a slow start last season but started to pick things up as he continued his first year back from retirement. From Week 5 on, Gronkowski averaged 5.3 targets per game and scored seven touchdowns, finishing as the No. 8 scoring tight end (half-PPR).

Fantasy Downside
Gronkowski was very touchdown-dependent for his fantasy scoring as he averaged just 38.9 yards per game in 2020, his lowest mark since his rookie season. He also set a career-low in catch percentage (58.4%) meaning he wasn’t converting his targets into catches. With O.J. Howard back and healthy this season, along with Antonio Brown playing a full year and the arrival of Giovani Bernard, it’s hard to see Gronk getting the same volume of targets as last year. And if his catch percentage remains low, it’ll be really tough for Gronk to put up fantasy points consistently.

2021 Bottom Line
Howard’s return to the lineup is likely going to be bad news for Gronk. We’re expecting lower total numbers for Gronk this season in receptions, yards and touchdowns despite the fact there’s an extra game on the schedule. This is an offense loaded with talent, and we’d expect Gronk to play more of a blocking role with an occasional catch or two each game. We have Gronk ranked around TE20 for this season, making him a bad value given his ADP.
