It took a few weeks for Gronk to round into form in his return from injury last season, but he got back to health and was the best tight end in the game once again. He was first overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. Gronk scored 12 touchdowns and has three 100-yard games. He finished with a 1,000-yard season and even sat out the last game of the year. Gronk has double-digit touchdowns all but one season in the NFL and two 1,000-yard seasons. He is the premier tight end in the game. He does have an injury history, which is always a concern, but is the top target in this offense as long as he is playing. Gronk has tremendous size, runs solid routes and has enough speed to make plays downfield. He is the complete package at tight end.
Gronk is the clear No. 1 fantasy tight end, worthy of being selected in the first round of fantasy drafts. He is a difference maker at a position that doesn't have many guys producing huge numbers. Gronk produces more like a No. 1 fantasy receiver than tight end. Expect his numbers to get a little better this year, a year removed from a major injury. He can get 90 or so receptions for 1,200 yards with 14 touchdowns.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught two touchdowns in the first half against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 Thursday, Sept. 10, and his 15 games with at least two touchdowns since 2010 are tied with Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson for the most in the NFL during the stretch.

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan to be physical with New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski in Week 1 with New England's receiving corps thin minus WR Julian Edelman. Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons has had success in man-to-man coverage in his career, and LB Ryan Shazier has good range in zone coverage. The Steelers are likely to mix and match with both linebackers covering Gronkowski. 'You just have to jam him up a little bit, mess with his timing,' Shazier said. 'If you mess up their timing, they are really time-oriented. You have to mess up their timing and get in his face with pressure, then I feel we can slow him down a little bit.'

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had his deal restructured Tuesday, Aug. 4, which awarded him $4 million of his $10 million bonus that was due at the end of the 2015 league year. Gronkowski's contract called for a $10 million option bonus for the team to decide upon by the end of the 2015 league year that would, in effect, kick in the remaining four years on his deal. If the team opted to decline that bonus, Gronkowski would become a free agent.
