Targets: Gronkowski proves reliable
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- In updating the target percentages for each Patriots pass-catcher this season, rookie tight end Rob Gronkowski stands out this week. In last Sunday's 36-7 win over the Bears, Gronkowski was targeted six times and had five receptions, one of which went for a touchdown.
That improved his target percentage to 77.5 on the season, second best on the team for players targeted more than 10 times. Only running back Danny Woodhead is better.
