Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Back in Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Solid candidate for '21 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Shines in Super Bowl win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Provides clutch catch in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Limited to one catch in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Non-factor in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Quiet finish to regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Maximizes opportunities in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Inefficient with targets in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Makes one catch count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski secured one of two targets for a two-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 26-14 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

The veteran tight end couldn't come close to his season-best 106-yard outing against the Chiefs prior to the bye, but Gronkowski ensured his fantasy day wasn't a total dud with his two-yard scoring grab early in the third quarter. The 31-year-old's production continues to exhibit a fair amount of fluctuation on a weekly basis, with Sunday's line actually serving as Gronkowski's second one-catch, two-yard effort over the last five games. Naturally, he also has the talent to put together much better numbers in any given week, and he'll encounter a favorable positional matchup in a Week 15 divisional battle against the Falcons.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Eclipses century mark in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski secured six of seven targets for 106 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

The former Pro Bowler put together his first 100-yard effort since Week 14 of the 2018 season, with 29- and 48-yard grabs accounting for the majority of his tally on the afternoon. Gronkowski has repeatedly demonstrated he still has the wheels to beat downfield coverage this season, and Sunday's production was a welcome haul for fantasy managers after the veteran had posted a combined 5-78-1 line over the prior three games. Having busted out of that slump, Gronkowski will now need to carry over the momentum into a Week 14 battle against the Vikings following the Buccaneers' bye.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Modest numbers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski secured two of six targets for 25 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Monday night.

Despite the fact the Rams defense has mostly been a shutdown unit against receivers all season, Gronkowski couldn't capitalize on what tied for his highest target tally over the last four games. The veteran tight end had built up some nice momentum in Weeks 5-8 with a combined 17-233-3 line on 26 targets over that span, and even though he's garnered a solid 15 looks subsequent to that stretch, Gronk has only parlayed them into five receptions for 78 yards and one score. He'll look to bounce back in a key Week 12 interconference showdown with the Chiefs.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Ready for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski will play in Monday's game against the Rams.

Gronkowski sat out practice Friday for what likely was a routine rest day, and he's officially been cleared for Monday's primetime clash. The 31-year-old tight end took awhile to get rolling this season, but he's been impressive of late, recording 17 receptions for 234 yards and four touchdowns over the past five games.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski did not participate in Friday's practice for a non-injury related reason, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Gronkowski was a full participant at Thursday's practice, so this could potentially just be a routine day off. His status at Saturday's practice should bring more clarity to the situation. The veteran tight end hauled in two passes on three targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in last week's 46-23 victory over the Panthers.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Maximizes catches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski secured two of three targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 46-23 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

The veteran tight end closed out the scoring on the afternoon with a seven-yard grab at the 4:24 mark of the fourth quarter. However, the highlight of Gronkowski's afternoon was arguably his earlier reception, when he carried multiple Panthers on his back en route to a 44-yard gain. Gronkowki's target share likely is going to fluctuate more than ever with Antonio Brown acclimating to the offense, but the 31-year-old Gronk could have an impact in a Week 11 Monday night matchup versus a Rams defense that's proven adept at limiting wide receiver production.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Minuscule contributions in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski brought in one of six targets for two yards in the Buccaneers' 38-3 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.

In what was a nightmarish evening for the Buccaneers as a whole, Gronkowski put together his least productive performance since being blanked on one target against the Panthers back in Week 2. Gronkowski had recorded between three and five receptions in four straight games and caught a touchdown in three of them, so the downturn Sunday was particularly jarring. Antonio Brown did make his Bucs debut in the game as well, but it's worth noting that didn't lead to lack of opportunity for Gronkowski in a game script that skewed heavily toward the pass -- the multi-time Pro Bowler tied several teammates for the team lead in targets. Gronkowski will be one of many players looking to put this loss firmly behind them in a Week 10 road battle against the Panthers.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Catches another touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski caught all four of his targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 25-23 win over the Giants.

Gronkowski hauled in a three-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter, giving him a score in three straight showings. With at least four receptions in each game over that span as well, the veteran is slowly becoming a bigger factor for the Bucs. While that's helped his stock lately, it'll be interesting to see how Tampa Bay's targets are divided once wideout Chris Godwin (finger) and new addition Antonio Brown join him among quarterback Tom Brady's bevy of options.

Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Will play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (shoulder) has been cleared to play in Monday's matchup against against the Giants.

Gronkowski was limited in consecutive practices earlier in the week due to a shoulder issue, but he was able to practice fully Saturday en route to getting the green light for Monday's game. Barring any setbacks, look for the veteran tight end to take on his usual role with the team, one that could have him serve as important part of the game plan with Chris Godwin out and Antonio Brown not yet eligible to play.

October 30, 2020 03:56 PM
Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Limited in Friday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (shoulder) remained limited Friday at practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Gronkowski played through the same shoulder issue last week and caught five of eight targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 45-20 win over the Raiders. He's coming of three straight games with at least six targets and 52 yards, and there hasn't been any suggestion he's in real danger of missing Monday's matchup with the Giants.

October 29, 2020 05:04 PM
Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Limited at Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (shoulder) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

A shoulder issue has plagued Gronkowski for the past few weeks, but his snap count hasn't suffered, as he's logged at least 70 percent of the plays on offense in six of seven games this season. On top of that, he's found pay dirt in back-to-back games, combining for 10 catches (on 16 targets) for 140 yards and the pair of scores during that stretch. Assuming he continues to play through the injury Monday versus the Giants, Gronkowski could be in line for even more work with Chris Godwin (finger) expected to be sidelined.
