This past offseason, no single player in the league was talked about more than Rob Gronkowski. Off-the-field hard-partying, multiple forearm procedures, back surgery – he ran the proverbial gamut, leaving many unsure exactly when he would return to the field. As a result, Gronk scared off many early drafters, sliding well past the fourth-round in 12-team leagues.
Now inching our way to the beginning of the regular season, the tight end’s availability is starting to come into focus. According to several local reports, he looked “fluid” in individual drills on Monday and could be activated as early as Week 4 against Atlanta. Considering he tallied the third-best points per game output among all TEs/WRs a season ago, he’s a steal of a deal anytime after pick No. 40 overall. Get back onboard, gamer.
