Rob Gronkowski has been the consensus No. 1 fantasy tight end in the NFL for years but also been one of the more injury prone players at the same time. He's played all 16 games of a regular season just twice.
So, when he's healthy he might be the best tight end of all time. Which means that this over/under makes perfect sense in a vacuum.
However, this comes a week after Gronkowski had exactly 2.5 FanDuel points against the Jacksonville Jaguars and was limited in practice due to an ankle injury. Gronk may be the best tight end in the NFL, but 15.5 points is still a lot even for a player not dealing with a nagging ankle problem.
Reportedly, the ankle issue is nothing serious and Gronkowski just wanted to take it easy on Thursday, but coming off a bad game it's a dangerous combo. Gronk will surely still play and get touches, but 15.5+ points worth of touches seems like a stretch at best.
