Rob Gronkowski Says He’s Been Yelled at By Fantasy Football Owners This Season

Rob Gronkowski Says He’s Been Yelled at By Fantasy Football Owners This Season

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski hasn’t been his usual productive self this season, nabbing just one reception in his first two games.

And according to Gronk, those stats have made him a target for fantasy football players who are disappointing with his poor start to the season.

In Gronk’s defence, he is currently recovering from a hamstring injury.

But in the dog-eat-dog world of fantasy football, where the points your players put up are as important as life or death, that excuse just doesn’t cut the mustard.

Something Gronkowski knows only too well after being hounded by some players who have him in their team.

He joked: “Man, I know, I can’t even go to the grocery store without getting yelled at. Then why did you draft me then, baby?”

Gronkowski remains optimistic that players will be vindicated when and if he returns to full form later in the season:

“Hopefully. It’s real football, that’s what I’m really only worried about, is going out and getting the ‘W’.

If we get the ‘W’ and I have no catches, I’m satisfied, man.”

What do you make of that then, fantasy players?

Will you stand by the out of sorts tight end?

Or are you finally losing patience?
