New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared well on his way to another monster fantasy season in 2013, but a broken forearm cost the 23-year-old the last five games of the 2013 fantasy campaign, leaving many owners high and dry. Setbacks during Gronkowski’s recovery have led to a fourth surgery on the arm, which casts some doubt over his Week 1 availability, as does the status of his balky back. As such, there’s a measure of risk involved with investing an early pick in Gronkowski, but as he’s shown the last two seasons, when healthy his fantasy upside is through the roof.
