If Rob Gronkowski were out for the season, and Hernandez could stay healthy himself, we would have a new contender for the top spot. As it stands, both Gronkowski’s presence and Hernandez’s own injury concerns keep him just outside the top tier. Hernandez really sits in a tier by himself, as he has loads more upside than the following tight ends, but more questions than anyone in the Top Four. After all, he has averaged 9.3 FPPG over the past two seasons, but again, that’s over the course of 23 games, not 32.
