Draft note
by John Paulsen
Over the past two seasons, Henry averaged 4.4 catches for 49 yards and 0.35 touchdowns per game, which would have been good enough for a No. 4 overall finish last season had Henry played at that rate for a full 16-game season. If either (but not both) of Henry and Jonnu Smith had signed with the Patriots, they would certainly be in the TE1 conversation, but as it stands, the two players may serve to cancel each other out. Of the two, Henry is the more accomplished receiver–115 catches, 1,265 yards and nine touchdowns in the last two seasons–but Smith is a more explosive athlete and the Patriots signed him first.

NE TE Hunter Henry - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Hunter Henry has overcome quite a bit over the past few seasons with the Chargers. He had a torn ACL in 2018 and dealt with other injuries and issues over the past two seasons. Despite that, he still averaged almost 60 catches and over 600 yards with nine total touchdowns in that time. Now he's getting $12.5 million a year from the Patriots.

Fantasy Downside

Henry, of course, is not the only tight end that received a contract averaging $12.5 million a year in New England. In fact, he wasn't even the first tight end to do so with the Patriots. That honor belongs to Jonnu Smith. Really, it means the Patriots will run a ton of 12 personnel, and, ultimately, both tight ends will start canceling each other out from being a high-end fantasy option among tight ends.

2021 Bottom Line

All that said, there could still be plenty of volume for both Henry and Smith to be solid No. 2 fantasy tight ends. But you add in Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne and James White, among others, and there are a lot of mouths to feed in New England. Temper fantasy expectations for Henry.
