|TE - #2||NE||Injured Reserve||5 years||24||6'6||265||@RobGronkowski|
2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Oct-25-2013 by Daniel Kalles
Update October 25, 2013 - Gronk dinally made his long awaited return and while he didnt catch any touchdowns, he was still very effective.. He is now a must start every week
Update September 7, 2013 - While Gronk is making great progress, he will NOT play in week 1. It is possible he plays in week 2, but let us wait and see.
Update August 31, 2013 - Gronk is off the PUP, and making his way back to playing. Look for him to be active any time from week 3 on.
Update June 20, 2013 - Gronkowski has undergone 2 surgeries (forearm and Back) over the past month and there is a chance he isn't ready for the start of the season. Pay close attention to this story. We Will update closer to the season.
Gronkowski is an absolute beast, and when he is healthy, there really isn't anyone who can keep up with him (especially around the end zone). Gronk has scored 38 touchdowns over his first 3 seasons and that includes missing 5 games last year. Gronk's numbers, when healthy, are comparable to any top WR so he should be drafted accordingly. Gronk is scheduled for 2 more off season surgeries, but he should be ready for training camp and if he is, he needs to be drafted in the first few rounds as the #1 TE or even WR in leagues where TEs can be started as receivers. Only thing that could hold Gronk back is his health, so follow how he is doing in training camp.

2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
|3.03||Gridiron Experts - Now I generally never take a tight end before the middle rounds, but the recent, and justified, injury woes are causing Gronkowski's ADP to slip. For me, it's starting to reek of value, so I grabbed him instead of a group of talented, but deep receivers. My strategy in all future drafts will be similar to this- if I like the value of Graham or Gronk, I'll grab them. Otherwise, you'll see me take a tight end in about round 8.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
|3.01||FantasyTaz - Either you believe or you don't: I believe. Gronk is just head and shoulders above all other TEs for me, but of course the injury risk is real. But even with missing 5 games last year he still finished as a Top 5 tight end. in fact he outscored every other TE by over 3 1/2 points in average points per game. If we get 13 weeks out of him then he will be the #1 TE in 2013. No way would he have been available at my next pick.|
