Draft note
by John Paulsen
When we last saw Gronk, he was a 29-year-old struggling to a 47-682-3 line in an injury-riddled, 13-game season. He performed well in spurts, but lacked the week-to-week consistency that he had earlier in his career. He finished fairly strong, catching 12 passes for 166 combined yards in the AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs and in the Super Bowl against the Rams. After taking a year off, Gronk has been talked out of retirement by Tom Brady, and he joins a Buccaneers squad that is loaded with talent. I suspect Gronk will be used in a part-time role to keep him healthy for a playoff run, so his days of playing 95% or more of the snaps are probably over, though stranger things have happened. He produced at a low-end TE1 level in 2018 and I’d expect more of the same in 2020.

TB TE Rob Gronkowski - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Rob Gronkowski is back after taking one season off, and he joins a high-powered offense with his friend Tom Brady. Gronk was a force when he was active as he has the highest career yards per target of any player (with at least 500 career targets). Even in his final year when he wasn’t at his peak, Gronk still finished as the No. 8 tight end (half-PPR) in fantasy points per game.

Fantasy Downside
There are many reasons to be skeptical of Gronk in fantasy this season. For starters, he returns after taking a full year off, and he looked trimmed down in offseason photos. Second, he joins a Buccaneers team coached by Bruce Arians who has a bad history with tight ends. In Arians’ last nine seasons (as head coach or offensive coordinator), he’s never had a tight end finish in the top-18 in total fantasy points scored for tight ends. And finally, Gronk’s health. From 2016-2018, Gronk missed 15 games due to injury and played through a questionable injury in 11 games.

2020 Bottom Line
This isn’t the Gronk that spiked his way to 17 receiving touchdowns in a single season. There’s enough here to make you pause about drafting him, but there are also plenty of worse options. The tight end pool in fantasy is shallow, and Gronk at least offers some promise. If he’s able to stay relatively healthy, he should finish with low-TE1 numbers.
