Hunter Henry Week 5 Outlook -

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 8th 2020, 9:07am EDT

Things had been going well for Henry this year, though Week 4 was certainly a hiccup when he saw just three of Herbert's 25 pass attempts, netting just two catches for 39 yards. We can't expect that low volume again, as quarterbacks have averaged 34.3 pass attempts against the Saints. A massive 32.1 percent of those targets against the Saints have gone to the tight end position, while no other team in the league has faced higher than 26.4 percent. This is because of the cornerback duo the team has on the perimeter, though they were out last week. Henry will see a lot of Malcolm Jenkins in coverage, who was one of the best cover safeties in the game while with the Eagles, but has really struggled to start 2020, allowing 12-of-19 passing for 130 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage. The Saints as a whole have allowed the second-most fantasy points to tight ends, though the 7.50 yards per target ranks 11th, so it's not as bad as the overall numbers seem. Henry should still see six-plus targets in this game and be played as a middling TE1.
