Chargers' Hunter Henry: Posts career-high 90 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry corralled five of seven targets for 90 yards during Sunday's 17-16 victory over the Raiders.

Henry's usage seems to be evening out. After seeing zero targets in two of three games to start the season, the second-year tight end has garnered at least three looks in each of his past three outings -- including at least seven in each of the last two. While Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon will remain the clear focal points of this offense going forward, Henry is an effective weapon down the seam who should remain part of the Chargers' offensive gameplan regardless of opponent, as Los Angeles doesn't boast many other players that share the same combination of size and speed.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Finds end zone again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry brought in three of eight targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Giants.

Philip Rivers wasn't exactly at his sharpest against a tough Giants secondary Sunday, so like teammate Keenan Allen, Henry didn't finish with the most efficient catch rate. However, he did cross the goal line for the second consecutive game, bringing in a 25-yard scoring dart from Rivers with 40 seconds remaining in the third quarter to cap off a 12-play, 92-yard drive. The young tight end has endured a rollercoaster season thus far, as he's failed to be targeted in two different games but has also seen seven and eight looks in a pair of other contests. He appears to be trending in the right direction after having scored the last two weeks, a pattern he'll look to replicate against the Raiders in a Week 6 road tilt.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Incredible touchdown catch in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry caught two of his three targets for 16 yards and a touchdown during the 26-24 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

Henry's fantasy afternoon was shaping up to be another dud, but an incredible one-handed catch in the back of the end zone saved what was another otherwise forgettable performance. With Antonio Gates still seeing plenty of time on the field and potential red zone target, Mike Williams, nearing a return from a nagging back injury, Henry could fall even further down the pecking order in the coming weeks. However, with the Chargers perhaps already out of contention in the AFC (0-4 after Sunday's loss) there's a chance the team could opt to play some of its younger players, meaning Henry isn't necessarily a candidate to be dropped by fantasy owners just yet.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Getting support from coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Los Angeles coach Anthony Lynn said the team needs to get Henry more involved offensively, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

It's been an unusual start to the season for Henry, who caught seven passes for 80 yards in Week 2 but didn't draw any targets in the Chargers' other two games. His involvement figures to even out as the season progresses, but the ample competition for touches isn't likely to change anytime soon. Henry is splitting snaps with Antonio Gates in an offense that's devoting a lot of attention to running back Melvin Gordon and wideouts Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin. There are only so many opportunities to go around, and it's clear Gordon and Allen are the focal points.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: No targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry did not receive a target in the 24-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

The rollercoaster of a fantasy season continues for Henry owners. That's now two separate weeks the second-year tight end has not seen a single target, matching his dismal outing in Week 1 against the Broncos with another stinker against the divisional-rival Chiefs. Perhaps more alarming was that Henry did play in 41 snaps, one more than nominal starting tight end Antonio Gates, who was also kept in check (two catches for 30 yards). It appears as if a trend is emerging, as Henry has been utilized more as a blocker in two tight end sets against teams that employ fierce pass rushers such as the Broncos and Chiefs, with Antonio Gates essentially the de facto "between the seams" threat for quarterback Philip Rivers. It's a bit disappointing to see the athleticism of Henry squandered in obvious passing situations, as was the case for the majority of Sunday, but until the offensive line can gel together, Henry may be best served continuing his up-and-down year on a given fantasy owner's bench.
