Rob Gronkowski looked the best of his comeback season on Sunday, when he caught 5-of-8 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers. The week before, against the Bears, Gronkowski had just three receptions, but for 52 yards. And the week before, he had a 29-yard reception. It appears he is still going to get targets downfield along with red zone looks and he has a great schedule coming up.

Gronkowski is rostered in 60 percent of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues and with the Raiders, Giants, Saints, and Panthers on the horizon, he makes for a player that needs to be rostered closer to 100 percent, at least for this stretch.
