One of the top weapons in this matchup is Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. After missing the playoffs last season, Gronkowski is healthy and looking to help his team win a Super Bowl once again. This season, Gronkowski has been one of the best tight ends in the NFL, and that has translated to his fantasy numbers.
To no surprise, Gronkowski played very well for the Patriots in their win last week. Against the Titans, he was able to total six receptions, 81 receiving yards, and one receiving touchdown. One of the things that is very appealing about Gronkowski it that he is pretty much as close to matchup proof as you can get.
The Jaguars have a very good defense, but few teams are able to stop Gronkowski. Even though his price tag is very high at $7,900, he is the best option at tight end this week. Even though both Kyle Rudolph and Zach Ertz are good tight ends, they might have a hard time getting points in what looks to be a very low scoring game in Philadelphia.
Despite the price tag, Gronkowski should be fired up in all formats for Draft Kings this week. He is still Brady’s favorite target and don’t be surprised to see Gronkowski have a nice game in the AFC Championship.
