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.
