There's just something special about playing in your hometown, and for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, that special something is absolutely owning his hometown Buffalo Bills.
Gronkowski is no stranger to getting the better of opposing defenses in the NFL, but his career numbers against the Bills should have fantasy owners and Patriots fans salivating over his Week 8 matchup in Buffalo.

When your worst performance from a career list weighs in at seven receptions for 94 yards, it's certainly no stretch to assert there's a pretty recognizable pattern here.
Of course, Gronk is dealing with a back injury and missed last week's game, so that could play a factor as well.

Regardless of how you've felt about Gronk's season to date, his Monday-night matchup with the Bills is likely the best bet you'll have all season of the fantasy stud bringing home the bacon for your team this week.
