Depth Chart Change:
No Change in Depth Chart. Coming off an Injury.
Player Turnover:
Based on prior performance, a change in roster skilled positions projects a lower fantasy average of (0.978) pts per game for Gronkowski. At the Wide Receiver position: Chris Hogan (2016 Avg: 4.53 Pts/Game) is no longer starting and Brandin Cooks (2016 Avg: 7.31 Pts/Game) has been added to the starting lineup. At the Tight End position: Martellus Bennett (2016 Avg: 4.88 Pts/Game) has left the team.
Schedule Difficulty:
Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Gronkowski plays this year (108 - 85 - 0 0.560%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (90 - 117 - 3 0.435%), and last season's teams gave up more points (4,779) compared to this season's teams (4,484) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Gronkowski had a lower fantasy avg (6.73 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (7.89 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could also be an indication of less points.
