Rob Gronkowski has been something of a non-factor for the Patriots offense so far this year.

The typically unstoppable New England tight end pulled up with a hamstring injury during training camp in preseason, and it continues to bother him more than a month into the season. He missed his team's first two games , and in the two games that he has played he contributed little more than blocking. Against Buffalo in Week 3, he caught just one pass for 11 yards — his only reception of the season.

Now that Tom Brady is back from suspension, it seems likely that Gronk sees a bigger role as a receiver. On the other hand, if Gronk remains in a limited role as a blocker only, even with Brady under center, it's a worrisome sign that his injury isn't going away.

Still, Gronk certainly sounded happy about having his QB back:

But let's go back to those fans yelling at him in the grocery store. What the buy-ins for their fantasy football leagues?
