Player Outlook

In his return to the NFL, Rob Gronkowski certainly wasn't his old self, but he was also better than the version we last saw in New England. Ultimately, in Bruce Arians' not-so-friendly TE offense, the ceiling is limited for Gronkowski. He is a better option in standard leagues, but most weeks he is a TD-or-bust play. Given the state of the TE position, he makes for fair value in the mid-to-late rounds if you choose to wait on the position.

Player News
  • The Buccaneers and Gronkowski agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. A reunion between the two was the expected outcome this offseason as the Buccaneers attempt to keep as much of the Super Bowl LV champions intact as possible. Gronkowski will rejoin position mates Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard after posting a 45-623-7 line on 77 targets last season in his return from a one-year retirement.

  • Gronkowski, who played the 2020 season on a $10 million deal, is a strong candidate for a return to the Buccaneers next season if he's willing to continue his career, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. The multi-time Pro Bowler ultimately proved to be an ideal fit in his return from a one-year retirement, unsurprisingly meshing well with Tom Brady while operating as a superior blocker for the running game. Gronkowski's 45-623-7 regular-season stat line paled in comparison to what he posted during his Patriots heyday, but that appeared to be largely a byproduct of working in more of a complementary role within a talent-laden pass-catching corps. Laine notes that working heavily in favor of a Gronkowski return is the fact he brings plenty of stability at tight end to a team that hasn't been able to count on the skilled but oft-injured O.J. Howard (Achilles) to remain on the field for a full season.

  • Gronkowski brought in six of seven targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday. Following a very quiet postseason, Gronkowski reemerged in the offense at precisely the right time, as he'd frequently done in Super Bowls past with the Patriots. The veteran tight end got loose several times downfield against Chiefs linebackers and safeties, notching eight- and 17-yard scoring receptions in the first half. With Sunday's tally, Gronkowski pushed his Super Bowl career catch total to 24, the most by any tight end in the history of the NFL's title game. Gronkowski played the 2020 season on a one-year contract, but after producing a solid 45-623-7 line during the regular season and then showing he had plenty left in the tank Sunday, there's a good possibility he's back with the Buccaneers in 2021.

  • Gronkowski secured his only target for 29 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-26 win over the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. The 2020 season and postseason often have been an exercise in humility and sacrifice for Gronkowski, who's garnered nowhere near the same level of attention from Tom Brady as he once did during their New England days. Nevertheless, the chemistry the two once enjoyed still rears its head from time to time, and it did so Sunday on a crucial 29-yard grab just past the midway point of the fourth quarter that helped set up a critical Ryan Succop field goal after the Packers had closed within five points. Gronkowski's 2-43-0 line over the last two playoff games notwithstanding, the veteran may deliver a big play or two during Super Bowl LV versus either the Bills or Chiefs, two teams that had trouble defending tight ends all season.

  • 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.
