If you are in a PPR league and have Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski on your fantasy team, he has produced 11 yards on 1 reception through four games, or 2.10 PPR points.
To be fair, no Patriots’ pass-catchers — besides Martellus Bennett — have lived up to their fantasy expectations through the first four games. In Gronkowski’s case, it’s been more than just the absence of Tom Brady.
It’s been that, and also his hamstring that he hurt way back in the preseason, in a joint practice with the Chicago Bears. He hasn’t been 100-percent, yet.
Gronk admits the hamstring is still limiting him. "When I can get rolling, I'll get rolling."

Gronk talked to the media on Wednesday afternoon and he was asked about his hamstring and his lack of production, he responded:
Rob Gronkowski on fantasy football owners noting his production: "I can't even go to the grocery store without getting yelled at."

Hopefully if you drafted Gronk in the first round, you snagged a viable TE2 to shoulder the load while he was on the shelf for the first two weeks, and you also realized that Jacoby Brissett is no Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo, when it comes to passing the ball.
Don’t blame Gronk, fantasy owners. Blame yourselves.
Expect Gronkowski’s hamstring to heal soon and don’t forget he has TB12 coming back this weekend against the Browns.
If you sold-low on him, you’re an idiot.
