Patriots' Hunter Henry: Headed to New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry is signing a three-year, $37.5 million contract with the Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Patriots add another big name to their long list of free-agent acquisitions, a group that also includes fellow TE Jonnu Smith and WRs Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor. The addition of Henry points to frequent use of multi-TE formations, which could be part of a run-first offense if Cam Newton is still the starting QB. This isn't the best landing spot in terms of Henry's 2021 fantasy value, but partnering with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels could nonetheless prove wise long-term.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Won't be tagged
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers won't use their franchise tag on Henry, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Doing so would have resulted in a cap hit for Henry that would have been close to $13 million. Popper notes that the Chargers still figure to be looking to re-sign the tight end to a long-term deal, but unless that happens in short order Henry will be able to explore other options once free agency opens next week.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Activated from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers activated Henry (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, according to the league's official transactions report.

Henry was forced to miss Los Angeles' season finale against Kansas City after being placed on the COVID-19 list. In all, he wraps up the 2020 season with a career-high 60 catches (93 targets) for 613 yards and four touchdowns across 14 appearances. The 26-year-old tight end played on the non-exclusive franchise tag in 2020, which sets him up to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The Chargers will have the option of retaining Henry for 2021 by franchising him again, though his $10.6 million salary would rise significantly.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Set to miss finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers won't activate Henry from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Henry will thus conclude the 2020 campaign with consecutive absences after having yet to clear all health-related protocols since he was added to the list Dec. 24. While Henry was sidelined for the Week 16 loss to the Broncos, Donald Parham led Chargers tight ends in offensive snap share (81 percent), but Stephen Anderson (44 percent of snaps) doubled him up in targets, 6-3. Expect both Parham and Anderson to have prominent roles in the Week 17 passing game, as another key target in top wideout Keenan Allen (reserve/COVID-19 list) will also be sitting out.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry, who is on the COVID-19 reserve list, is not available for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Also out is top wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring), so the Chargers will be without two of their top pass-catching options in Week 16. In Henry's absence, Donald Parham is expected to fill in as the team's starting tight end Sunday.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Trending toward absence Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers elevated tight end Matt Sokol from the practice squad Saturday, which may indicate the team isn't expecting Henry (undisclosed) to be available Sunday against the Broncos, Gavino Borquez of USA Today reports.

Henry didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness and was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list one day later, giving him very little time to make his way through league protocols to be able to suit up for game day. If Henry doesn't return to the active roster in time for Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, Donald Parham is slated to start at tight end for L.A.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Expected to miss Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry isn't likely to be removed from the COVID-19 reserve list in time for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Nick Kosmider and Daniel Popper of The Athletic report.

Henry was listed on the Wednesday injury report with an illness and later placed on the COVID-19 list. Coach Anthony Lynn said Donald Parham will fill in as the starting tight end if Henry isn't able to play.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn relayed Thursday that Henry is on the COVID-19 reserve list, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Lynn added that Donald Parham would start at tight end for the Chargers this weekend against the Broncos if Henry is unable to play Sunday.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Sits out practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness.

Henry's status will need to be monitored as Sunday's game against the Broncos approaches. A return to practice Thursday in any capacity would suggest that the tight end is in no danger of sitting out Week 16.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Productive night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry brought in five of seven targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' 30-27 overtime win over the Raiders on Thursday night.

The athletic tight end locked in a solid fantasy night early courtesy of a 10-yard touchdown grab in the latter portion of the first quarter that opened the scoring for both teams. Henry went on to post his second-highest yardage total since Week 2, and he's now just 40 yards away from exceeding the career-high 652 he recorded last season over 12 games. The fourth-year pro will look to accomplish the feat in a Week 16 divisional contest against the Broncos on Sunday, Dec. 27.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Raiders after practicing fully Wednesday.

Henry's practice participation revved up as the week progressed, and the Chargers' top tight end should be all systems go against Las Vegas. He'll look to top his modest output of four catches for 33 yards from the Week 9 meeting between these AFC West foes.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Limited on Tuesday's report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (hip) was limited on Tuesday's estimated injury report.

All of the Chargers' key non-QB skill-position players are tending to injuries, but all of Keenan Allen (hamstring), Austin Ekeler (quadricep), Mike Williams (back) and Henry would have practiced in some capacity Tuesday after DNPs one day prior. The pattern indicates coach Anthony Lynn is taking a similar approach with each of the quartet, but Wednesday's report will reveal if any of them are in danger of being limited or sitting out Thursday in Las Vegas.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Listed as DNP on practice estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry (hip) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.

As was Keenan Allen (hamstring), Mike Williams (back) and Austin Ekeler (quad). We'll look for added context on the status of the quartet of key skill players Tuesday, as the Chargers ramp up their preparation for Thursday night's game against the Raiders.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Hardly difference maker in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry corralled six of his eight targets for 41 yards in the 20-17 win Sunday over the Falcons.

Henry briefly appeared to injure his shoulder in the second half, but the tight end returned almost immediately thereafter. Sunday marked the sixth time over the last eight games Henry has seen at least six targets, but he hasn't been much of a difference maker considering his paltry average depth of target. Provided he stays healthy for the rest of the season, it's almost guaranteed the 26-year-old will set a career high in terms of receiving yards, but it's hardly the type of breakout season Henry was hoping for entering 2020 on a franchise tag.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Hardly involved in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 45-0 loss to the Patriots.

Henry's output was his worst of the season across the board as he was hardly involved despite the fact that his team played from behind for much of the day. This dud came as even more of a surprise considering he had two touchdowns and an average of 48.3 yards per game over his last three. Henry has been a reliable target for most of the season and will look to get back on track next Sunday against a Falcons defense that has been susceptible to opposing tight ends this season.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Effective in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught seven of his 10 targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills.

It was another productive fantasy day for Henry, who continues to build a rapport with quarterback Justin Herbert. Although the big-bodied tight end failed to score a touchdown for the first time in three games, he did tie a season high in receptions and also saw a season high in targets with the Chargers facing an early double-digit deficit. Henry has been consistent but not spectacular this season, and he may be hard-pressed to capitalize on the momentum in a tough matchup against New England next week.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Scores for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught four of seven targets for 48 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-28 win over the Jets.

Henry tied for third on the team in targets and hauled in exactly four passes for the fifth time in the last six games. He made a two-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter to help his team stretch the lead, giving him scores in back-to-back games after going without one the previous three outings. Henry should have plenty of chances to continue thriving in next Sunday's road matchup with the Bills.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Ends three-game scoring drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught four of his six targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-21 loss to the Dolphins.

The tight end benefitted from having a mobile signal caller as Henry's touchdown was essentially a byproduct of the defense converging on Justin Herbert in the red zone, allowing for an easy score. That might be one of the few times fantasy managers have been thankful for the increased mobility of Herbert, as Sunday marked just the second time since Week 2 that the tight end saw a target within the five-yard line. At this point, it's clear the Chargers would rather rely on Herbert's legs (three red-zone rushing TDs) in close quarters as opposed to targeting their big bodies out wide. The schematic change between Herbert and long-time starter Philip Rivers has come at the cost of Henry's and Mike Williams' red-zone opportunities, though Week 11 might be a fruitful matchup considering the Jets' ineptitude for much of the season.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Limited numbers once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught four of his seven targets for 33 yards in the 31-26 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

While the oddity of having back-to-back weeks with exactly four receptions and 33 yards receiving might be humorous, it's a less-than-ideal outcome for fantasy managers given what was supposedly a plus matchup. Henry continues to see plenty of targets (53), but an average depth of target of 6.9 yards indicates the almost absurd levels the Chargers take to make sure the tight end provides relief short across the middle of the field.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Snares four targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 31-30 loss against the Broncos.

Henry converted every one of his targets and also saw a season-high 84 snaps. While Henry has only scored one touchdown this season, he is on pace to set career highs in receptions and receiving yards, although that's a byproduct of the tight end's lack of durability through five seasons. His four red-zone targets halfway through the campaign is a bit concerning, especially after the loss of Austin Ekeler (hamstring).
