Fantasy Analysis
Week 20 Projections
Despite looking as healthy as he has all season, he was used minimally last week against the Chargers. Brady only looked in his direction twice, but he was on the field and he was a beast clearing paths in the running game. Look for a bump up this week in production this week, as the Chiefs defense spends some energy trying to slow down Edelman and White.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 59 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
After briefly mulling retirement during the offseason, Tom Brady's favorite target has returned for his ninth NFL campaign. Although "Gronk" missed two 2017 contests and enjoyed very light duties in one other (zero targets), he clocked out of the regular season as the fantasy TE1/non-PPR (third top finish in non-PPR in the last four years) and as the fantasy TE2/PPR (third top-two finish in PPR in the last four seasons). Gronkowski, topping the New England Patriots in receiving across the board for the second time in the last three years, finished fifth at the position in catches, first in receiving yards (fourth career 1,000-yard season), first (tie) in scoring grabs and sixth in targets (105). Everybody in the fantasy universe knows the skinny on Gronkowski. The super-consistent centerpiece and primary red-zone weapon in New England's diverse aerial attack is too big for most defensive backs to cover and too fast for most linebackers to shadow effectively. Still in his prime at 29, the only knock on Gronkowski is durability. He takes tons of punishment each year (three backs surgeries since 2009) and hasn't played a full regular season since 2011 (26 of 96 games missed in the last six years). Despite the injury risk, Gronkowski gives his fantasy owners a huge statistical edge when he's healthy - particularly in scoring - which is why Gronk remains the No. 1 fantasy option at the position, but you already knew that.

Receiving: 4 Receptions, 54 Yards, 0 TD.
