Rob Gronkowski 2017 Season Outlook

At least he's out and not an active decoy.

 

This is so true. Only problem is now you have to pick from a field of FA tight ends whose production is more in line with decoys rather than competent options.

Both Aaron Hermandez and Martellus Bennett had 7 TD seasons backing up Gronk. Why can’t Allen catch a TD tonight?

 

At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.

I just cannot understand how this dude is never healthy. Good God. Devastating.

I cannot understand why people still draft this guy and then are surprised when he misses games.

Debating between these myself (Fleener on bye on my bench). 

 

For me, it's coming down between Dwayne Allen or OJ Howard. I'm leaning toward Dwayne Allen, just because I also have Brady going tonight.

 

This stinks.

 

 

I have Amendola, Winston, Doug Martin. If I play OJ or Dwayne, pretty much half of my production done by Thursday and week can be over. 3-1 vs 4-0. Tough choice... I think it comes down who has a better chance of catching a TD to salvage the night. OJ or Dwayne. Since you're starting Brady, you can prob get Dwayne and hope for a double TD. Since I'm going Winston maybe I can hope the same.

Because he has no hands.

That sound you hear is the sigh of relief from people who were up against Gronkowski this week.... an extremely favorable matchup tonight (Last year Olsen put a 180 yard performance against this D) and Gronkowski is out. Tough break .....

Who the f--- would hit this guy so hard in practice that he gets a bruise so bad that forces him to miss the game?

Is that what he's missing this game for? Pretty sure dude played every snap in last weeks game. Unreal

long season, better for him to rest up and get healthy than aggravate it and leave early, leaving fantasy owners with a s--- outing.

 

Then again, we're gonna get a s--- outing anyways this week with whoever we pick up. But that just makes me thankful to own Gronk for those weeks he is out there.

 

Forever the optimist.

Yeah. His own teammate f***s the team over by being a tough guy in practice.

In re: “he (Allen) has no hands”

 

Anyone can catch a football with those magic gloves they use nowadays. I had no idea how much better they are than stickum until I used them in flag football a few years ago.

I get that's the consensus, but he did rock 8 TDs in 2014.

 

Don't know what to say besides he has looked terrible this year. Brutal.

Allen has been an absolute train wreck with Brady it's been reported thus far. I can't see him getting many targets.
