Gronk remains atop our rankings
Week 7 brought Rob Gronkowski his lowest-graded game of the season—and it was still well above average. Against the Jets, Gronk hauled in 11-of-15 targets for 108 yards, while fighting for 57 yards after the catch. His touchdown reception was his sixth of the season, tied with Tyler Eifert for the most of any tight end.
Gronkowski isn’t just a threat through the air; the Patriot also owns the best run-blocking grade among tight ends, and the sixth-best pass-blocking grade.
