Player Outlook

Henry had some good moments in 2021, and we'll see if he can emerge as a starting Fantasy tight end this year. We want to see it first, and he's only worth drafting with a late-round pick in deeper leagues, especially tight-end premium formats. Last season, Henry did well in finding the end zone with a career-high nine touchdowns. He had a stretch with seven touchdowns over a seven-game period from Weeks 4-10, and hopefully he can prove to be more consistent. The Patriots have a crowded receiving corps with DeVante Parker, Tyquan Thornton, Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor and Jonnu Smith, and this is still expected to be a run-heavy team. But clearly Mac Jones trusts Henry, especially near the end zone, and Henry could be a surprise Fantasy option this year. If he goes undrafted, Henry could become a quality waiver wire option if he starts off the season playing well.

Player News
  • Henry was limited during Wednesday's minicamp practice due to an undisclosed injury, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. Henry and fellow tight end Dalton Keene (undisclosed) were both limited, along with Jakobi Meyers (undisclosed) and James White (hip). Cox noted that all four offensive weapons spent the majority of the session on the rehab field, but the severity of their respective injuries remains unknown.

  • Henry finished the 2021 regular season with 50 catches on 75 targets for 603 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns in 17 games. For the first time in his career, the 2016 second-round pick played a full slate of games. Henry, who is signed through 2023, joined the Patriots as a splashy free-agent signing last March along with fellow tight end Jonnu Smith. Though the two operated in a timeshare, Henry was far more involved in the passing game in his first campaign with New England. In 2022, Henry and Smith are in line to continue working in tandem, an arrangement that caps Henry's volume when both are available. That said, Henry's nose for the end zone should continue to make him a startable weekly fantasy option in most leagues.

  • Henry caught five of six targets for 86 yards in Sunday's 33-24 loss to the Dolphins. The tight end led the Patriots in catches and receiving yards, but it was the team's backfield that accounted for all three of its TDs. Henry finishes the regular season with 55 catches on 81 targets for a career-high 689 yards and nine touchdowns, and he figures to be Mac Jones' most reliable option in Saturday's wild-card round clash with the Bills.

  • Henry was on the field for 39 of a possible 72 snaps on offense in Sunday's 50-10 win over the Jaguars en route to catching three of his five targets for 37 yards, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Fellow tight end Jonnu Smith out-snapped (42) Henry in the contest, but he was only targeted once (for a 20-yard gain). Henry's volume and yardage totals have been sporadic of late, but he remains on the fantasy radar due to his TD potential. Through 16 games to date, he's logged a 45/517/9 stat line on 69 targets.

  • Henry was on the field for 55 of a possible 64 snaps on offense in Sunday's 33-21 loss to the Bills en route to catching one of his six targets for nine yards, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Jonnu Smith logged 21 snaps and wasn't targeted in the contest. Henry's Week 16 fantasy dud follows an effort last weekend in which he caught six of eight targets for a season-high 77 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to the Colts. A stat line somewhere in the middle of that range is a plausible projection for him versus the Jaguars this coming Sunday.
