Chad Henne converts GW 4th down conversion to earn trip to AFC Championship

Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne came in for injured Patrick Mahomes and completed 6-of-8 passes for 66 yards and an interception in the Chiefs 22-17 win over the Browns in the Divisional Round of the 2021 playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Henne entered the game in the third quarter once Patrick Mahomes left with a concussion and did not return. Henne threw a pick but redeemed himself by converting a critical, game-sealing 4th down play late in the fourth quarter. If Mahomes isn't cleared by next Sunday, Henne will start in his absence. Still, there are no reports of Mahomes potentially missing the game as of yet.

Chad Henne throws two TD passes in Week 17 spot start

Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne completed 23-of-32 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' 38-21 loss to the Chargers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Henne hasn't logged much playing time behind MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes but played well in his absence. Henne finished with a 111.2 passer rating and did not commit any turnovers in Sunday's loss. The Chiefs have a bye week after clinching the top seed in the AFC, giving Mahomes two weeks of rest and prep heading into the playoffs.

Chad Henne will start vs. Chargers

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Chad Henne will start in place of Patrick Mahomes for Week 17's contest against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

The Kansas City Chiefs have elected to rest Patrick Mahomes for Week 17, meaning Chad Henne will be the starter against Los Angeles. This downgrades all of the Chiefs skill players that end up playing. This is shaping up to be a contest to avoid Chiefs options for Week 17 DFS contests.

Chad Henne agrees to two-year deal to return to Chiefs

Quarterback Chad Henne and the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a two-year deal for the signal-caller to return as a backup to Patrick Mahomes.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs have their franchise quarterback in Mahomes and opted to carry both Henne and Matt Moore as veteran backups last season. Moore is also a pending free agent and has yet to sign a deal.

Chad Henne off IR, questionable Week 9

Chad Henne (ankle) has been activated off injured reserve and is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Henne, who fractured his ankle toward the end of August, returned to practice near the end of October. The Chiefs waived backup Kyle Shurmur on Saturday, opening the door for Henne to back up Matt Moore if starter Patrick Mahomes (knee) misses a second consecutive week.
