Henry was merely the TE13 in standard scoring leagues last season, despite four games missed and the presence of Antonio Gates. In 2018, It looked like we would finally get to see what Henry can do without Gates getting in the way. Alas, the 23-year-old tore his ACL in May during OTAs, thus stalling his emergence as the Chargers' undisputed go-to tight end. Assuming a full recovery, Henry's career stats (81-1057-12) probably illustrate what he could do at his peak in a few seasons. That production came on a modest 115 targets, the number you'd expect a top-notch tight end to receive. The timing of Henry's injury should allow him to be healthy in advance of the 2019 campaign, at which point he'll look to pick up where he left off.

  2. Hunter Henry 2017 Preseason Outlook
    It's not difficult to build positive or negative narratives with Henry; it's just a matter of how you want to play it. Some fantasy owners will draft him aggressively this year, while others will run in the other direction. Rookie tight ends are generally hands-off investments, but Henry broke a lot of the rules last year. He became the third rookie tight end to grab at least eight touchdown catches (joining Junior Miller and Rob Gronkowski), somehow doing this on just 53 targets. It was a little surprising to see a productive player get this little opportunity, but the learning curve has to be respected. Then again, the Chargers were playing without a host of key pass catchers, including Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead. If you're in the pro-Henry camp, you figure his opportunity share has to go up, which will make up for a likely drop in efficiency. The faders will note the presence of TE Antonio Gates, back for his age-37 season. The Bolts also drafted WR Mike Williams in the first round, and Allen could be a factor after playing just one game last year. We should have a much clearer sense of Henry's value in August, when team roles and pecking orders become clear. It's realistic that he could have a better real-life season, and a busier one, but still fall short of last year's touchdown count.
  3. Hunter Henry 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Even with the loss of Ladarius Green, Henry, the consensus top tight end in the 2016 NFL Draft, likely won't contribute with the Chargers immediately considering the presence of Antonio Gates and free agent addition Jeff Cumberland. However, second round picks tend to find their way onto the field sooner rather than later, and considering Gates isn't getting any younger (35 years old) and Cumberland is somewhat limited, Henry's value could grow as the season unfolds, making him an especially intriguing option in keeper and dynasty league formats.
