Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Henry is a terrific real-life tight end, and he finished 9th last year. But L.A. is going through a QB change (and possibly two) this year. Henry will be tough to trust.Cook is constantly overlooked, yet he was 7th in 2019. He'll drop slightly with Sanders in town, but he's still a fine TE1 in deep leagues.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Limited by injuries to 41 of a possible 64 regular season games over his four NFL seasons, Henry has been one of the league's more productive tight ends when he's been healthy. He struggled to the tune of 3.7 catches for 37.7 yards per game as the Chargers limped to a disappointing 1-6 finish in 2019, but the hope is that he'll rebound with a new quarterback under center in 2020.While playing for three different teams from 2015 through '17, Cook caught only nine passes on plays that began inside the 20-yard line despite being targeted 28 times in the red zone over that span. (Even worse, he turned just one of those catches into a score.) He's been more effective in the red zone the past two seasons and should be a factor inside the 20 again in 2020.
Kevin Tompkins
Fighting Chance Fantasy
Gets a quarterback in Tyrod Taylor that made Charles Clay consistently a thing from 2015-2017. Even after the Engrams and Wallers of the world have been picked, Henry is still a hard bargain for me at the 7th-8th range but he's a player who tends to slip down the board and can be taken as a value once the high-upside TE start to come off. Passing game situation is a bit of a question, but if he can stay healthy, he should produce as a low-end TE1.There's a regression on the horizon for Mr. Cook, who finished as TE7 on just 65 targets, but scored 9 touchdowns. His aDOT was 2nd in the NFL among TE next to Mark Andrews. If his target share remains the same or tapers off with the addition of Emmanuel Sanders, there's nowhere to go but down for Cook. He's a poor volume bet in a run-first offense and likely a fringe TE1 but more of a TE2 for me.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
With Tyrod at QB, Charles Clay saw 5.8 T/G from 2015-2017 ... Henry saw 6.3 T/G last year.Stats for Jared Cook last season: Weeks 1-8: 15 rec, 168yds, 2TDs (6 games, got hurt and missed 2 games) Weeks 10-16: 26 rec, 493yds, 6TDs That bye week did wonders for Jared Cook. @budrich17
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Fifth year tight end Hunter Henry finished last season as the TE9 (TE10 in PPG) and that feels a little disappointing until you realize that's the first time he's ever finished in the top 13! Henry has never passed 700 yards in a season, has never passed 100 yards in a game and has never passed 10 targets in a game. Tyler Higbee did those last two things in four consecutive games! There is reason to hope though, as Tyrod Taylor is a guy who made Charles Clay a fantasy relevant TE by peppering him with more targets than Robert Woods or Sammy Watkins. I wouldn't touch Henry anywhere near his 6th round price tag but he is interesting if he starts to fall in drafts.Jared Cook had an insanely efficient 2019, turning just 65 targets into a TE7 on the back of historic red zone efficiency with 9 total TDs and 700 yards. Massive regression is indicated in 2020 but in non-PPR he remains a solid option as this Saints offense lacks the weapons to really threaten him. In PPR he's barely draftable as the upside on a weekly basis is so low. Don't be sucked into his 7th round price tag as that's above his ceiling.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There are a lot of questions surrounding the Chargers offense as we head into 2020, and the quarterback position is atop the list. No matter who is under center, they're not going to be throwing the ball a lot. Tyrod Taylor has never attempted more than 436 attempts in a season, and Justin Herbert is a rookie who'll go through growing pains. We already saw Henry being somewhat scaled back in this offense last year, as he failed to top 45 yards in each of the last five games. For a guy who's never topped 652 yards in a season and getting a downgrade at quarterback, he has a high draft price, and is likely not going to live up to expectations.It's very uncommon for tight ends to finish in the top-10 with less than 100 targets, but Cook finished as the No. 7 tight end in 2019 with just 65 targets. He did that because he scored a touchdown every 7.2 targets, a number that is sure to regress. It's tough to find him more targets in the offense in 2020 with the arrival of Emmanuel Sanders, too. He's likley going to be a touchdown-or-bust option, which puts him in the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 territory.

Seems like every Chargers player fantasy value has tanked since Rivers left. I am not letting Tyrod Taylor scare me off of Henry though, he will need a safety valve in the offense and Henry is his guyThe addition of Emmanuel Sanders will take some targets away. I still like him in the redzone though.

Henry has always been a risky pick due to his injury concerns, but now, it's his potential QB that has me concerned. We all know how much Philip Rivers likes throwing to TE's, the same cannot be said for Tyrod Taylor and Justin Herbert. I still think Henry's talent will keep him in the TE1 range, but I don't see as much upside for him as he's had in years past.Even with Drew Brees missing time last season, Cook finished 2019 with some strong numbers, especially in the TD department, scoring nine times. But, like most TE's, Cook is largely TD dependent on a week to week basis and I don't see him scoring nine TDs again in 2020. He should have a safe floor but his upside is capped with Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara demanding most of the touches in New Orleans.

Henry dealt with an injury yet again last season, but he was productive when he was able to play. Playing 12 games, he had the most targets, receptions, and yardage of his career. The departure of Philip Rivers, however, will likely do no favors for Henry, as the veteran quarterback historically targeted his tight ends heavily. Although Tyrod Taylor targeted Charles Clay often in Buffalo, he's almost certainly going to throw the ball less than Rivers did, meaning Henry is likely to see a dip in targets. He should still be valued as a TE1, but his stock has dimmed a bit with the change in quarterback.Cook's aDOT of 10.4 yards was second behind only Mark Andrews among tight ends who received at least 22 targets last year, and he scored an impressive nine touchdowns. But it's unlikely he can put up quite the same fantasy season again if he can't improve on his 43 receptions. With Emmanuel Sanders on board and Alvin Kamara fully healthy, Drew Brees will have plenty of other options in the passing game, meaning it's unlikely that Cook will see an increase in targets. In other words, draft Cook as a starting tight end, but consider him more of a low-end option despite last year's production.

Henry's been great for fantasy when he's been on the field previously, but his health isn't something that you can comfortably rely on. Additionally, this offense isn't going to be as pass-happy as they've been in previous seasons, which limits Henry's overall ceiling. He should still be a fine option for fantasy football, especially at a position that has so many question marks, but I don't believe that he offers you league-winning upside this season.Cook is currently being drafted as a top-10 tight end and there's a very narrow path for him to return that type of value in 2020. Cook was well above the league average last year in terms of yards per TD rate and he averaged an unsustainable 16.4 YPR. Those numbers are both going to be very difficult to replicate this year and that's not even mentioning the fact that the Saints spent significant draft assets to acquire Adam Trautman. There's more competition for targets in this offense and Cook's being drafted at his absolute ceiling right now. I highly recommend looking elsewhere in your drafts.

Franchised - Returns as Top-TE hereIn 9 games with Brees, Jared Cook saw 41 tgts, 30 rec, 574 yards (14 per tgt), 7 TDs... insane Top-3 pace. Brees is back for at least one more ride, although Cook will now face more target competition with Sanders around.

Henry had 652 yards from scrimmage and 5 touchdowns, but he could have issues having success in the passing game if QB Tyrod Taylor remains the starting quarterback.Cook had 705 yards receiving and 9 touchdowns, he does carry the risk of playing with a 41-year old quarterback and the risk of entering his age 33 season.
