Summary

Year in, year out, Rob Gronkwoski is the top option at tight end. He is always among the top two in targets for the Patriots, a team which throws a bunch of balls. His ability after the catch and overall size and athleticism make him dangerous across the middle and hard to stop down the seam. He has only had one season where he has scored less than double-digit touchdowns, and that was a year where he went down to injury. Gronkowski is a big play waiting to happen, and quarterback Tom Brady knows it, so expect him to continue putting up ridiculous numbers for a tight end each year. (May 20)

Our View: Last week, reports surfaced about Gronkowski dealing with some sort of "cryptic ailment" but now he's back in action. The team is likely to limit the superstar TE while he deals with whatever in the world this ailment actually is...or was...or whatever.
