Tampa Bay Buccaneers veteran tight end Rob Gronkowski was one of Tom Brady’s primary options in the passing game last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gronkowski will once again be a top offensive target on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Gronkowski is valued right behind Travis Kelce ($6,500) for tight ends in DFS this weekend. If you do not load up on wide receivers, then you should think about putting Gronk into your lineup.
