TE - NE
Week 3 Outlook
Hunter Henry caught 2-of-4 targets for 42 yards in Sunday's victory against the Jets.
Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith continue to cancel each other out, though Henry did record 14 more receiving yards. Due to insufficient volume, he remains a TE2 at best.
Hunter Henry hauled in all three of his targets for 31 yards in Sunday's defeat to Miami.
Henry essentially played the same amount of snaps as Jonnu Smith, as they each made their debuts as Patriots. While Smith had the slightly better fantasy day, all three of Henry's catches came in the second half. It may also help that Smith nearly lost a fumble early in the second quarter. If ball-security were to become an issue for Smith, that would almost surely lead to increased usage in the passing game for Henry, boosting his fantasy stock. For now, it's difficult to imagine any pass-catcher in this offense becoming a strong fantasy asset, given how crowded the group is. But both TEs should be involved enough to be considered TE2s going forward. The Patriots have an easier matchup next week against the Jets.
Patriots TE Hunter Henry (shoulder) says he expects to play in Week 1 against the Dolphins.
Henry injured his shoulder in training camp about a month ago, but it was never expected to be overly serious. Henry will share tight end duties with Jonnu Smith in New England this season. Both players have low-end TE1 appeal, but it's unlikely that either reaches their ceiling outcome this year, barring injury.
Patriots TE Hunter Henry is expected to miss "a couple of weeks" with the shoulder injury suffered in training camp as per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Schefter followed that up with the injury is "not serious", so it can be assumed the Patriots are just exercising caution with their recent free-agent acquisition. The fantasy community isn't exactly banging down the door for either of New England's tight ends, but Henry could offer TE1 upside depending on how he's utilized or barring injuries. He's a solid late-round flier in deeper leagues.
TE Hunter Henry appeared to tweak his shoulder while blocking Anfernee Jennings in practice. After favoring it for over an hour, Henry left the practice area with a member of the training staff.
Two months after suffering a lower body injury during OTAs. Henry has now injured his shoulder. While it’s nothing to panic over just yet, with Henry's lengthy injury history, this should be monitored closely. The 26-year-old signed a three-year, $37.5 million deal with New England this offseason after five years in Los Angeles. He played 55 games, catching 196 passes for 2,322 yards and 21 touchdowns. On the field production has never been a problem for him, it’s keeping him healthy. He missed all of 2018 and has yet to play a full season. It is unclear if Henry will miss any time with this injury, but if he were to Smith would be the natural pick to start at tight end.
