10 man league gronk value

I’m in a ten man league. At what pick does gronk become a value? Everyone says to take him in 8 man wherever they can and pass on him in 12 for the most part but what about in 10

I don’t understand why anyone would say take him in an 8 team league but pass on him in a 12 team league. That doesn’t make any sense. He is an elite talent at a brutal position. The bigger the league the more valuable he is. He would be worth a second round pick in a 10 team league.
