Considering your league I'd keep Gronk (for once he'll be an early bust and late payoff) and draft to complete your roster.

You have:
2HB's (I hate both your HB's. Spiller trips and misses time and Johnson is damaged goods. Johnson is great trade bait though. Wait for his first huge game and then float him out there.)

If this league is so WR heavy I'd guess it's also QB heavy in scoring. There are a ton of solid QB's this season. Spend your time on HB's/WR's that you can use for trade bait and worry about a QB later...
Standard scoring, nothing heavy on the QB. The only unique aspect is starting 4 WR/TE (treated as wide receivers). Gronk typically comes in as a top 5 or so WR/TE, so being willing to wait for him to get healthy is my issue.

I love Spiller, not sure why you think he's injury prone. He's been nicked up here and there, but not more than many other RBs. CJ has been frustrating to own no doubt, but he has a much improved OL so I think he'll be fine as a RB2.

I have RGIII coming off IR so he counts as my last round pick, so I'll wait and take a QB in the 9th/10th round.
