2021 Rob Gronkowski Overview:
In the 1980s, the crypto-zoological world was set ablaze by a short recording of what appeared to be a human-ape hybrid:
This strange beast was dubbed “Rob Gronkowski.” Scientists classified him as bipedal, in possession of an unhealthy amount of testosterone, and covered in fur and Super Bowl rings.
If placed in the secure confines of a fantasy team, researchers want to know if this chimera can provide a decent floor at the fantasy tight end position. Moreso than the other tight ends going for the same small capital. In 2020, this Bigfoot finished 8th among tight ends, but only returned half a fantasy point more per game than the TE18 (HPPR).
2021 Rob Gronkowski Draft Strategy:
Gronk was buoyed by 7 touchdowns. If you want a hot-and-cold tight end, he’s yours for the taking. Frankly, I want a tight end with a decent floor, letting my true fantasy studs carry my team to victories. So Gronk isn’t for me in 2021. He’s more of a high-upside flex during a byenado.
Upon hearing of the presence of a sasquatch, Florida governor Ron DeSantis declared that it wasn’t human, and therefore did not have to follow any Covid-19 restrictions.
Best Case Scenario:
Gronk gets you a TD in half your fantasy games.
Worst Case Scenario:
In half your fantasy games, Gronk doesn’t get you Sasquat.
