Hunter Henry Week 1 Outlook - Dolphins at Patriots

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 11th 2020, 1:16pm EDT

I was down on Henry for most of the offseason, but given the injury to Mike Williams, I can see him living up to his draft cost to start the year. There were six tight ends who saw more than three targets against the Bengals last year, and five of them finished as a top-10 tight end that week, while Ryan Griffin caught five balls for 30 yards, so not a complete bust. The issue was volume against the Bengals, as they only faced 95 tight end targets all season long (5.9 per game). Heck, they faced just 30.9 pass attempts per game, which ranked as the second fewest in the league, though that will be more than enough for Henry to get six-plus targets with their lack of pass catchers available. Start Henry as a solid TE1 this week who's in a plus matchup with a higher target share.
