Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Henry has a good matchup this week. The Jaguars haven't effectively stopped anyone this season, and the Chargers should put up a good chunk of points. That said, they're one of the run-heaviest teams in the NFL, and Henry will need to capitalize on a relatively small workload to post TE1 numbers. He currently ranks sixth in median points per game with 9.8, and he's finished with between 7.5 and 11.3 points every week but one, so I'm relatively optimistic about his floor. That said, he doesn't have the upside of someone like Jonnu Smith or Jared Cook. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Henry is a weekly top-8 start, and he'll face a Jags' defense that has been friendly to the position this season. Fire Henry up as a top-fiver for Week 7. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Hunter Henry is averaging 7 targets per game and 12 yards-per-reception. He only has one score on the year, but is facing a Jaguars defense that allows the 7th most fantasy points to the position. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Henry has to find the end zone to push his way up into the top-10 at the TE position, but he's worth plugging into your lineup either way. He can be viewed as a low-end TE1 this week in this matchup.Gage wasn't heavily targeted last week, but with the Falcons offense back to being a dynamic unit, Gage is an intriguing deep league FLEX option this week. The Lions are surrendering plenty of fantasy points to opposing slot wideouts and Gage could be a sneaky play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now been targeted at least seven times in 4-of-5 games this season, something that's extremely rare for tight ends in today's NFL. It's disappointing that he's been held below 40 yards in each of the last two games, but targets amount to production more often than not. You'd actually think his production would go up with Ekeler out of the lineup, but it's had a reverse effect. Welcome to the matchup with the Jaguars, where fantasy points are given away for free. Seriously, they've allowed a league-high 2.63 PPR points per target to tight ends, which includes 10.63 yards per target and a touchdown every 7.0 targets. If Henry gets the seven targets he has in 4-of-5 games this year, he should finish as a top-three tight end. What makes the 2.63 PPR points per target even better is that they've played against Jonnu Smith, Darren Fells, T.J. Hockenson, Mike Gesicki, Jack Doyle, and Drew Sample, so it hasn't been a brutal schedule or anything. Henry should be played as a high-end TE1 this week.I mentioned last week that if/when Jones came back to the lineup, it would help everyone involved in the Falcons offense. While Gage finished with just four targets last week, they amounted to four catches for 65 yards. He hasn't seen more than five targets since back in Week 2, which is worrisome when you're playing him for a floor and not necessarily a ceiling. It certainly helps that the Lions opponents have targeted their wide receivers 65.3 percent of the time, which is the second-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that the Lions have been crushed by slot-heavy receivers. Here are the ones they've played through five games: Keelan Cole 6/143/0, Emmanuel Sanders 6/93/0, Andy Isabella/Larry Fitzgerald 5/47/2, Allen Lazard 3/45/0, and Anthony Miller 4/76/1. It's clearly a weakness between Darryl Roberts and Justin Coleman. Gage should be able to offer a WR4/5-type floor in this game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are 26th against fantasy tight ends, Henry is a solid TE1 this week at home in a plus matchup.
