Rob Gronkowski is the elite fantasy tight end

In a perfect world Jimmy Graham would not have been traded, Vernon Davis would still be a superstar and Antonio Gates would not have been suspended.

Such A Long, Long Time To Be Gone

I think this could actually be the longest I’ve gone without posting.  However, in my defense, I’ve had some good reasons.  Sam and I went to Aruba for a week without the kids, which was awesome.  But the first thing I saw when we got to the bar at the resort was an ESPN profile on which Chargers rookies could be starting in 2015.  Normally, I’d be psyched to see this. ...
