Rob Gronkowski stays low-key in fantasy against Seahawks

Rob Gronkowski took a back seat to some of the other targets for Tom Brady on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rob Gronkowski didn't put up big numbers for the Patriots in Week 6 against the Seahawks, with Aaron Hernandez back in the lineup. He caught six passes for 61 yards on eight targets.

It wasn't a terrible day for Gronk, but he wasn't the main man in this one. Wes Welker stole the spotlight in the passing game, and Hernandez grabbed a touchdown as well.

Fantasy Impact: Welker seems like a consistent high-scorer for the Patriots, but everyone else will likely vary from week to week for fantasy owners. Gronk is a must-start every week still. However, he isn't winning matchups for his owners on a weekly basis.

Be sure to keep him in your lineup for Week 7. He caught eight passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns in his last game against the Jets.
