Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs JAX (7 / 4 / 101 / 0 rec)

Everyone's favorite tight end had a relatively quiet day by his standards, reeling in a mere 4 catches and not scoring a touchdown. However, his passes were all chunk plays, as he had over 100 yards on those 4 catches. Gronk ran plenty of seam routes, including a 43 yard gain on New England's opening drive. He also drew a pass interference in the end zone, setting up a 1 yard touchdown run. Though his stat line didn't show it, Gronk was still operating at his normal high level.

2015 Week 2 vs BUF (13 / 7 / 113 / 1 rec)

The best tight end in the league once again showed why he gets that title, putting on a clinic against the Bills. The game started off with a 36 yard completion to Gronk up the seam for the Patriots, and snowballed from there. Gronk's touchdown saw him start in a tight run formation, then flex out wide to 1 on 1 coverage. As always, Gronk won the 1 on 1 battle, and scored on an easy slant from 2 yards out. Gronk had other chunk plays, including a 27 yard catch, and is once again one of the most important pieces in the Patriots offense.

2015 Week 1 vs PIT (8 / 5 / 94 / 3 rec)

No preseason snaps? No problem. Gronkowski came out and absolutely humiliated the Steelers, though at times coverage schemes on him were questionable considering all the pre-game talk about jamming him and getting in his face. His first touchdown had him split wide right and uncovered, which probably isn't the smartest thing to do against one of history's best tight ends. Gronk caught a short pass, and YAC'd the rest into the end zone, avoiding a tackle or two along the way as always. Gronk's second score was play action from 6 yards out in a heavy tight end set, where he simply had to snare a ball that was thrown high into his mitts. His third touchdown saw him start in a run formation initially, then split out left. This left a linebacker covering him, and though the linebacker panicked and motioned to the defense when he realized the mismatch, the defense didn't send any help over. Bad idea, as Gronk easily beat the backer on a fade route. Just another day at the office.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski strikes again (Sun Sep 20, 05:32 PM) - New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had his fourth touchdown catch in the past two games Sunday, Sept. 20, in a 40-32 win over the Buffalo Bills. It was Gronkowski's 10th TD in eight games against the Bills.

Our View: Gronkowski was relatively quiet on a very high volume day for Tom Brady, which shows just how dominant a fantasy force he is. The list of players even close to Gronkowski's value is very short.
