Summary

Rob Gronkowski was (mostly) healthy last season and that, plus his production, got him Comeback Player of the Year honors and a Super Bowl ring. A top fantasy wide receiver in a tight end's body, Gronkowski should continue to be both healthy and productive, likely appearing in 15 or 16 games and putting up another 1,000-plus yard season with double-digit touchdowns. While there are plenty of receivers for quarterback Tom Brady to use, Gronkowski is still one of his favorite targets. The only receiver to have more last season was Julian Edelman, and that was only by three targets. With Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen gone, we don't know how much the Patriots will really run this year either, so we could actually see even more passes. Regardless, Gronkowski is one of the best players in fantasy and could be gone in the first round of many drafts. (May 17)
