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.Higbee was a fantastic waiver wire find at the end of last season and he asserted himself into the conversation as one of fantasy football's top tight ends. However, the majority is still skeptical of the limited sample size and that's reflected in his ADP. If you prefer to wait on tight end, Higbee's a great option to add to your roster. This offense should remain heavy in 12 personnel and this should still be a heavy passing volume team. Everything lines up for Higbee to have a great season again in 2020.

With Tyrod at QB, Charles Clay saw 5.8 T/G from 2015-2017 ... Henry saw 6.3 T/G last year.Higbee had what could be the best 5 game stretch any TE has ever had to end 2019, which is why just about everyone has him in their top 10 TE's. He definitely benefited from injured teammates and from facing Arizona in two of those games. I expect the Rams to use more two-TE sets, but let's not expect him to see 11+ targets per game. He also failed to achieve 50 yards in 56 of his first 58 games.
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.While it's easy to fall in love with the way Higbee ended the season, we mustn't forget that it's a very small sample size. He finished with 522 yards and two touchdowns over the final five games while seeing a massive 56 targets. He and Gerald Everett COMBINED for 85 targets the entire 2018 season. Injuries certainly helped Higbee get more targets as the year went on, but are we certain it'll continue in 2020? If you don't have to spend a pick in the top five or six rounds to get him, it's worth finding out.

Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.Up until Week 10, Higbee was an afterthought owned in less than 2% of fantasy leagues but from the time the Rams added him to the starting lineup, Higbee went for over 500 receiving yards in five weeks. There is a chance he leaps to the top tier of fantasy tight ends in 2020 but there is some risk here compared to the other second-tier tight ends.
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.Higbee emerged as the featured tight end in this offense with 734 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns. QB Jared Goff makes Higbee's value volatile, but he should be a fantasy TE1 in 2020.
