It would be easy to be lured in by the fantasy football potential of these players, but the risk is just too high. Stay away from these three at draft time.

3. Rob Gronkowski, Patriots tight end

He’s played 18 games the past two years and tore his ACL last season. He’d be worth the risk late, but he’s the third-ranked tight end.

The 49ers have plenty of receiving options and a run-first offense. Crabtree has averaged more than 60 yards a game one year in his career.
