Gronkowski secured one of five targets for 14 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-20 divisional-round win over the Saints on Sunday. Gronkowski was disappointingly quiet for the second straight postseason contest, but his one catch Sunday moved the Buccaneers into position for what would turn out to be a game-sealing touchdown in the latter stages of the fourth quarter. Gronkowski's unremarkable last few games notwithstanding, the tight end's unquestionable level of rapport with Tom Brady always makes him an interesting dart throw for DFS formats, including in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers in Lambeau Field.
Gronkowski failed to bring in his only target in the Buccaneers' 31-23 wild-card win over Washington on Saturday night. Cameron Brate got all the glory in terms of the Buccaneers tight ends on a night when Tom Brady threw for 381 yards and a pair of touchdowns, generating a 4-80 line on six targets, Meanwhile, Gronkowski was surprisingly ignored for the majority of the contest, registering an even quieter performance than his 2-29 line in Week 17. Gronkowski bounced back from sub-par efforts on a couple of occasions this past regular season, and he'll try to do the same in a divisional-round matchup against the Saints next Sunday evening.
Gronkowski brought in two of four targets for 29 yards in the Buccaneers' 44-27 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Despite Mike Evans suffering a knee injury in the first quarter that forced him to miss the rest of the contest, Gronkowski played only a minor role in the air attack eight days after touching up the Lions for a pair of touchdowns on as many catches. The veteran tight end's production frequently fluctuated during his 2020 return after a one-year retirement, with Gronkowski recording one or no receptions in four games but posting four or more catches in five others. The 31-year-old was a bit more productive as the campaign went on in terms of his red-zone work, posting all seven of his touchdowns between Weeks 6 and 16. Gronkowski will now look to parlay his vast postseason experience from his days in New England into new January successes, beginning with a wild-card matchup against Washington on Saturday night.
Gronkowski brought in both of his targets for 58 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 47-7 win over the Lions on Saturday. Gronkowski made sure to make his scant opportunities count Saturday, catching touchdown passes of 33 and 25 yards from Tom Brady and Blaine Gabbert in the first and third quarters, respectively. The veteran tight end's seven scoring grabs on the season rank as his second-highest figure in a season since 2015, and arguably just as important, he continues to be blessed with excellent health in his return from a one-year sabbatical from the NFL. Gronkowski will look to make good use of one final tune-up before the postseason in a Week 17 divisional contest against the Falcons.
Gronkowski brought in three of seven targets for 29 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-27 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Gronkowski tied Mike Evans and Antonio Brown for the team lead in targets, but a couple of off-target throws from Tom Brady helped contribute to the veteran tight end's sub-50-percent catch rate. Gronkowski's week-to-week fantasy outlook continues to have a bit of feast-or-famine quality to it due to the number of appealing targets available to Brady, and he's now recorded three or fewer catches in five of the last six contests. He'll look to exploit a favorable Week 16 matchup against the Lions on Saturday afternoon.
