What You Need to Know:

*NOTE: Gronkowski announced his retirement in June. The following was written prior to his announcement:

  • What we all need to know most here is whether Gronk is going to play … obviously. As of this writing, not even Tom Brady will say whether he thinks his buddy is returning.
  • Gronkowski lost 4 games to a rib fracture and punctured lung in 2021, plus another to back spasms.
  • Back issues have arisen at points throughout Gronk’s career, as far back as 2009. That’s when he missed his junior season at Arizona State because of a bulging disc.
  • His 2021 injuries don’t appear to be a factor going forward, and Gronk played in every 2020 game after sitting out the 2019 season.
  • Gronk delivered his most yards per catch and receptions per game since 2017 last year. His average depth of target has dipped vs. the numbers before his 1st retirement. Gronkowski has increased his yards after catch, though.
  • He led all TEs in end-zone targets in 2020 and tied for 5th in that category last season.
  • Brady has led the league in pass attempts from inside the 10-yard line each of the past 2 years, according to Pro Football Reference.
  • Gronk ranked 4th among TEs in targets per game in 2021. The Buccaneers then let TE O.J. Howard walk in free agency. The most significant addition: 4th-round pick Cade Otton, who is working back from ankle surgery.
  • The Bucs have also shed Antonio Brown from last year’s team, replacing him on the roster with free agent Russell Gage. Chris Godwin is working back from a double ligament tear suffered Dec. 19.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We’re obviously assuming that Gronk plays by projecting him. Let’s just hope we get that answer before your primary drafts begin. If he’s on the field, there’s no reason to think the vet can’t deliver weekly top-12 production.

Rob Gronkowski, TE TB

Gronk: "I'm done with football"

"I'm done with football," TE Rob Gronkowski said Tuesday, adding that he wouldn't return even if QB Tom Brady called to ask. The interview made headlines -- but we wouldn't expect Gronk to say anything else less than a month after announcing his retirement. We still believe there's at least a small chance he returns to the Bucs at some point this season.

Speculating on the team's replacement plan in the wake of TE Rob Gronkowski's (2nd) retirement, Scott Smith of the team website highlights the potential of 4th-round rookie Cade Otton. Smith says "there is the potential for him to be the one tight end the Buccaneers keep on the field most often," with receiving skills that "many draft analysts" believe exceed his college usage and the fact that he's "already considered an above-average and very willing blocker." Smith goes on to say that there might not be a "single clear answer" and that the Bucs could just blend Otton, fellow rookie Ko Kieft, vet Cameron Brate and perhaps 1 more player. Otton is primarily a name to know for dynasty usage, but this also serves as a reminder to temper fantasy expectations for Brate. He's likely the team's best receiving bet at the position with Gronk gone. But Brate has also played less than 40% of Tampa Bay snaps in 3 straight years. Just 2 of those included Gronkowski, and he missed 5 games in 2021.

TE Rob Gronkowski tells NFL insider Jordan Schultz that he's retiring. It's only June, of course, so there's plenty of time for Gronk to change his mind. In fact, he "retired" back in 2019 before eventually returning with QB Tom Brady and the Bucs in 2020. So we're not completely ruling out another season from Gronkowski. But he'd be tough to draft as more than a last-pick flier right now. Losing Gronk would be a big blow to a Bucs offense that lost WR Antonio Brown and has WR Chris Godwin iffy for the start of the season after tearing his ACL in December. TEs Cameron Brate and rookie Cade Otton are next up on Tampa's depth chart.

Update: Gronkowski confirmed his retirement on his Instagram. But his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, isn't totally buying it. “It would not surprise me if Tom Brady calls him during the season to come back and Rob answers the call," Rosenhaus told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "This is just my opinion but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rob comes back during the season or next season.”

Per beat writer Rick Stroud, the Bucs are “optimistic” TE Rob Gronkowski will re-sign prior to training camp. Gronk currently projects as a TE1 for the 2022 fantasy football season.
