So, in a league, I have to choose between the following keepers:

Either DeMarco Murray as a 7th rounder or Rob Gronkowski as a 12th rounder.

I am inclined to think Gronk is going to regress quite a bit as teams get better at defending guys like him, and I also think there are quite a few quality tight ends out there. I also really like Murray.

How important is a TE in this league?
Both should be beasts if they stay healthy even though each has his own injury concerns.
Gronk will be catching TD's from Brady for next 5 years while Murray runs behind a suspect O-Line in Big D.
Tough call and like most fantasy decisions will come down to player health.
I swear if you could find someone to accurately predict injuries you would be richer than Biff Tannen returing from the future with the Sports Almanac!

I'd go with Gronk. He's the best at a position with very few superstars.

Gronk hands down. Yes, you can get another TE that would fill in and you wouldn't lose much, but there are only a couple tier 1,2 guys out there that will score like a WR almost every week. Those points above average for the position can come in handy.

Murray is a huge injury risk, and has been missing games with knee injuries since high school. If I had to choose, I'd take Gronk. With all the other weapons the Patriots have, it will be difficult for teams to gameplan specifically for Gronkowski. Lloyd, Welker, and Hernandez are all capable of having huge games too, and Gronk is a physical monster who is tough to stop, almost guaranteed production because of his size.

How could you not keep a guy by the name of "Gronk". Serious though, Brady gets into the redzone and he is the first person he looks for.

Can't pass up the value of Gronk as a 12th rounder.

Gronk it is. Gracias.

And if Murray blows up, I'll hate you all.
