NFL Odds: Sportsbook Predict Gronkowski To Return Stronger
Rob Gronkowski is back in the NFL and back with long-time teammate Tom Brady, now that they've reunited in Tampa Bay. News of Gronk's return to the gridiron raised many questions, one of which would be how valuable the future Hall of Fame tightend would be to the Buccaneers offense.
DraftKings have set his line for total recieiving touchdowns at over/under 5. It's a very tempting number and there are arguments on either side of the debate.
We all know about Gronk's dominace in his prime, when he was undoubtedly one of the best to ever play the position. Questionmarks are over the 2018 season when he was ravaged by injury, and how NFL-ready he'll be after missing the entire 2019 season after retiring.
Gronk has totalled 79 touchdowns in his NFL career, with only 3 of his 9 seasons returning under 5 touchdowns in the regular season. In 2013 and 2016 he returned 4 and 3 touchdowns in the regular season after playing less 50% of the teams games or less due to injury. In his last season in 2018 he only managed 3 touchdowns, primarily being used as a blocker when fit.
Gronk-fever has taken over the NFL and he's also favorite to win the NFL'S Comeback Player Of The Year Award ahead of the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger.
