So I’ve done a lot of mocks so far, I notice that Gronk has been going late 2nd, early 3rd in most, which is probably fair. I’m mock-picking 5th in a team league so more often than not he never even falls to me. But today was the first time he fell to me (in the 3rd I believe), and I was for some reason hesitant.
I know Gronk is the best fantasy and probably real-life TE in football, but at this point does his injury-risk outweigh his value? His recent injury history has me wondering if having him healthy for half the season is worth it over a dependable RB2 or WR2 that would be drafted in that same range, especially when (imo) there is still some quality TE talent to be had in later rounds, like Olsen, Burton, Doyle, Rudolph, Ebron, etc.
Maybe I’m just more bullish on WR-RB positions than TE, I dunno. I wouldn’t wanna use a top 2 pick on him, even if it was late 2nd round. What are everyone else’s opinions?
Disclaimer I realize there is an injury risk with every player you draft
