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.

Henry was banged up once again last season but still produced double-digit fantasy points per game while on the field. The issue here, is that the Chargers' quarterback situation is a downgrade this year. If he can stay healthy, Henry is a lock for a top-ten tight end and is young enough that he has upside for much more.Cook may have finished as a TE1 last season but his 9 TDs in just 43 receptions is nowhere close to sustainable. More likely, that number will be cut in half and the targets could go down too as the Saints now added a reliable WR2 in Emmanuel Sanders for the first time in a decade. Cook a streaming tight end this season but being drafted as a surefire fantasy starter.

With Tyrod at QB, Charles Clay saw 5.8 T/G from 2015-2017 ... Henry saw 6.3 T/G last year. 
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 10 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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.
