Draft note
by John Paulsen
Henry missed four games due to an early-season knee injury and still finished as the No. 9 fantasy tight end. He had the No. 8 per game average of any tight end with at least 10 games played in 2019. He’s a solid fantasy asset, but he’s likely to suffer the same fate as the rest of the Charger pass catchers--the passing game pie is going to shrink with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. Here’s the good news: Taylor targeted Charles Clay 77 times (in 13 games) in 2015, 87 times (in 15 games) in 2016 and 74 times (in 13 games) in 2017, for an average of 5.8 targets per game. Henry saw 6.3 targets per game in 2019.

LAC TE Hunter Henry - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
The Chargers will have a new quarterback in 2020 after Philip Rivers' offseason departure to Indianapolis. Rivers started all 235 games for the team since 2006 so the upcoming season will certainly be one of transition. Keeping a degree of continuity was a priority, so the team used the franchise tag on Hunter Henry in March. By doing so they have armed that new quarterback with a tight end known for his abilities as both a receiver and blocker. Henry missed four games due to injury last season, but he still had career highs in targets, catches and receiving yards. In three seasons -- he sat out all but one game in 2018 because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament -- Henry has scored 17 touchdowns. Per NFL.com, Henry ranked eighth in fantasy points per game (12.5) among tight ends, and he scored double-digit points in eight of his 12 games in 2019.

Fantasy Downside
The downside here is easy. It's the same reason Henry is playing on the franchise tag rather than a long-term contract. The problem, of course, has been staying on the field; Henry's missed 23 games in four years and played just 12 over the last two. He has to prove he can remain in the locked and upright position for a full 16 games.

2020 Bottom Line
Whoever is throwing the ball for the Chargers in 2020 will continue to lean on Henry, who should remain a top-10 fantasy tight end. As CBSSports.com suggests, with a 71.2-percent career catch rate, he definitely has the potential to approach 1,000-yards if he can manage a full season.
