Hunter Henry Week 2 Outlook - Patriots at Seahawks

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

It was a promising start to Henry's season with Taylor where he saw a massive 26.7 target share. He caught five of his eight targets for 73 yards in a plus-matchup against the Bengals. This mirrors what Taylor did as a starter in Buffalo, relying heavily on his tight end, who was Charles Clay at that time. However, if they want to proactively target Ekeler more out of the backfield, it would cut into Henry's targets. The Chiefs have continually let tight ends have the underneath stuff and it's the reason they faced 145 targets last year, which ranked as the second-most in football. Tight ends averaged just 9.94 yards per reception, which ranked as the seventh lowest in the league. So, if the Chargers want to dink-and-dunk down the field, the Chiefs will seemingly allow it. Henry tallied six catches for 69 yards against this defense last year, so he's familiar. Until we see Taylor move of Henry and target Ekeler a lot more, you should play Henry as a stable TE1 with a solid floor.
