Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski said he will take a few weeks to decide on his future, but if he does return for another season, it will be with the Buccaneers. Gronk was quarterback Tom Brady's favorite weapon in the 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, as he caught six of his seven targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns in the big game. Brady said he will be returning for the final year of his two-year contract, so that alone may be the deciding factor for the 31-year-old to return for another season. Gronkowski will be a free agent this March, but it shouldn't take much for the two sides to work something out if he wants another crack at a ring in 2021. Gronk had 45 catches for 623 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season and would enter next season as a low-end TE1 if he pairs up with Brady yet again.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski caught six of a team-high seven targets in a 31-9 win over the Chiefs. Gronkowski was quiet as a pass-catcher for the playoffs before this but rose to the occasion, hauling in two red-zone scores from Tom Brady. The 31-year-old caught 45 passes for 623 yards and seven touchdowns, finishing as a top-10 tight end even after taking an entire year off. Gronkowski wants to be back in Tampa next year- it's safe to assume Brady wants him back- and will probably be on the low-end TE1 radar, even with a healthy O.J. Howard presumably returning to the lineup.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 21 of his 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. RB Leonard Fournette rushed 16 times for 89 yards and a touchdown and added four catches for 46 yards, and RB Ronald Jones logged 61 yards on 12 carries. TE Rob Gronkowski led the passing attack, catching six of his seven targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns. WR Antonio Brown caught five of his six targets for 22 yards and a score, Mike Williams had one grab for 31 yards, and WR Chris Godwin had two receptions for nine yards. LB Devin White led an impressive defensive effort, registering a game-high 12 tackles, including two tackles for loss, and an interception. DT Ndamukong Suh finished with 1.5 sacks.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski has nearly been an every-down player for his team during their playoff run. Unfortunately, Gronkowski's production hasn't matched his playing time, as he's only compiled two catches for 43 scoreless yards in the Buccaneers' three playoff victories. However, Tampa Bay may need more from the veteran tight end as a pass-catcher on Sunday, particularly if Cameron Brate (back), who popped up on Thursday's injury report, is limited or unable to go. Gronkowski had a 100-yard game in the regular-season meeting against the Chiefs and is no stranger to the Super Bowl. Fire him up as a solid, cost-effective option to Travis Kelce.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski caught just one pass for 29 yards in his team's 31-26 win over the Packers. Gronkowski went catch-less through three quarters before picking up 29 yards on a screen pass in the fourth quarter, setting up Tampa Bay for a field goal. The former Patriot has nearly been an every-down player for the Buccaneers in the playoffs but has done little as a pass-catcher, as he's taken a backseat to fellow tight end Cameron Brate. No stranger to the big game, Gronkowski will get a chance to redeem himself in the Super Bowl.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 passes for 280 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 24. It will be his 10th Super Bowl appearance, and the Bucs are the first team to play the game in their home stadium. RB Leonard Fournette ran 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 19 yards, RB Ronald Jones rushed 10 times for 16 yards, WR Chris Godwin racked up five receptions for a team-best 110 yards on nine targets and WR Mike Evans added three receptions for 51 yards and a score on eight targets. WR Scott Miller also cashed in his three targets for two catches, 36 yards and a touchdown, while TE Rob Gronkowski was limited to one catch for 29 yards on his lone target. TE Cameron Brate picked up three grabs for 19 yards and a score, while WR Tyler Johnson rounded things out with one catch for 16 yards. LB Devin White led the way defensively with a staggering game-high 15 total tackles, including nine of the solo variety.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski takes on the Packers in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Gronkowski has been out-produced by his teammate Cameron Brate lately, but the former has been on the field far more than the latter. The former Patriot also saw the same amount of targets as Brate last week and even had a touchdown catch fall just out of his reach. Both players could have good games, but Gronkowski is due for a strong performance- and he's no stranger to big games. Bet on Gronkowski seeing more looks with Antonio Brown (knee) sidelined against Green Bay, a team who allowed a 5-78-1 line to the big tight end in Week 6.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski caught one of five targets for 14 receiving yards in a 30-20 win over New Orleans. Gronkowski had yet another quiet outing as a pass-catcher, though he was far more involved in the gameplan this time. Tom Brady looked his way in the red zone, so the usage was pretty promising for fantasy purposes. The problem is, Gronkowski has been out-produced by fellow tight end Cameron Brate, who has 130 yards over the last two games. Still, Gronkowski should remain a part of the offense next week against the Packers, who surrendered a 5-78-1 line to him in their regular-season meeting.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 18-of-33 passes for 199 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions while also running for a score in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game win against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 17. RB Leonard Fournette rushed 17 times for 63 yards while adding five grabs for 44 yards and a score on six targets. RB Ronald Jones rumbled 13 times for 62 yards and he didn't have any catches with just one target. WR Cameron Brate had a team-high 50 yards on four receptions, while WR Chris Godwin led the wideouts with 34 yards on four receptions and seven targets. WR Scott Miller had just one catch for 29 yards, WR Tyler Johnson made an unbelievable adjustment for his one catch and 15 yards, while TE Rob Gronkowski finished with one catch for 10 yards. WR Antonio Brown had a grab for 10 yards, and WR Mike Evans had one three-yard touchdown for his only touch of the day.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski said he plans to return to the Buccaneers next season.
Fantasy Spin: Gronkowski will be a free agent this offseason but probably will sign a new deal with Tampa. He played well during the second half of the season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end in 2021.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski returned from retirement to join long-time teammate Tom Brady for the 2020 year. With Brady not planning on hanging up his cleats anytime soon, it appears that Gronkowski wants to continue his career as well, saying that he could see himself in the mix again next season, helping to push the team toward success. During the regular season, Gronkowski compiled 623 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, having made himself into a consistent TE fantasy commodity. Considering his All-Pro pedigree and the fact that would play the '21 season as a 32-year-old, Gronkowski can be relied upon to be in the mix in season-long formats of all sizes next year.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski had a catch-less game last week against Washington but could bounce back in Sunday's matchup with the Saints. Gronkowski wasn't a big part of the gameplan last week- at least as a receiver- though that could change against the Saints. The veteran tight end has risen to the occasion in big games this year- 6-106-0 against the Chiefs and 5-78-1 against the Packers- and this would be the biggest stage yet this season. The Tom Brady-Gronkowski connection failed fantasy managers last week, but it's worth going back to be more time.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski saw just one target in a 31-23 win over the Washington Football Team. Gronkowski was used as a blocker against Washington's tough front, which limited his opportunities as a pass-catcher. The veteran tight end was overshadowed by Cameron Brate's strong performance, as the latter delivered 80 yards. While it's certainly possible the Buccaneers use Gronkowski similarly next week, it's also worth noting that he's arguably Tom Brady's favorite target ever. He should be a threat in the red zone in the divisional round.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady finished 22-for-40 with 381 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Wild Card Round at the Washington Football Team on Saturday, Jan. 9. RB Leonard Fournette ran 19 times for 93 yards and scored one touchdown, adding 39 yards on his four catches. WR Mike Evans caught a team-high six passes for 119 yards. WR Chris Godwin landed five balls for 79 yards and a touchdown, while WR Antonio Brown produced 49 yards on two receptions. He scored once. TE Cameron Brate ended the game with four receptions for 80 yards, and TE Rob Gronkowski failed to secure his lone target.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski has been hit-or-miss in fantasy this year and seems worth fading ahead of a matchup with a tough Washington Football Team defense. However, Gronkowski is just two games removed from scoring a pair of touchdowns against the Lions- and the big tight end could be the primary red-zone target if Mike Evans (knee) is out or limited. Tom Brady and Gronkowski have connected for seven touchdowns this year as well as 12 postseason touchdowns. It's a connection worth betting on in DFS despite the tough matchup.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski ended Week 17 with two receptions for 29 yards on four targets. The TE was overall very inconsistent this season and only showed flashes of the dominance from his New England tenure. The 31-year-old only had one 100-yard performance this season and only recorded over 50 yards in six games total. The TE finishes 2020 with 623 yards and seven touchdowns.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Gronkowski has caught only six passes in the last three games but three of the catches were for touchdowns. He is a red zone target for the Buccaneers and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski is a TE1 this week against Atlanta. Gronk has been rather inconsistent the past four games but does have seven targets, at least 58 yards, and a score in two of those four games. The TE has been hot and cold all season but the fact that the Falcons allow the third-most points to fantasy tight ends means Gronk is a solid start this week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Jeremiah Ledbetter (calf) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 17 versus the Atlanta Falcons. CB Carlton Davis (groin) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as doubtful. LB Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) and DL Ndamukong Suh (non-injury) did not practice Friday but no longer appear on the injury report. QB Tom Brady (non-injury), S Mike Z. Edwards (hip), RB Leonard Fournette (abdomen), RB Ronald Jones (finger) and TE Rob Gronkowski (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Fantasy Spin: With Tampa Bay expected to play its starters in Week 17, you can pencil in Gronkowski as a TE1 against the Atlanta Falcons. He has seven touchdowns in the last 10 games, topping 50 yards five times in that span.
