Fantasy Analysis
Week 11 Projections
Henry leads all tight ends in air yards since his return from injury, which is of no surprise. Kansas City is a better defense than perceived, but tight ends are one of their weak spots. Fire up Henry as a top-tier option in Week 11.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 47 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Touted as a surefire breakout candidate, Henry blew out his right ACL during OTAs last May and missed the entire 2018 regular season. Since he returned to play 14 catchless snaps during the Chargers' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots and didn't have any setbacks with his surgically repaired knee this off-season, Henry will operate in a starting role, even if 39-year-old future Hall of Famer Antonio Gates returns. While Henry lacks elite speed and athleticism, he has job security, a nose for the end zone, a great pair of hands and all the necessary tools to serve as a top-shelf option at the position. With Gates and Tyrell Williams (Raiders) both gone, Henry has a chance to tap into the 110 targets, 69 catches, 987 receiving yards and seven scoring grabs that they left behind from last season. Philip Rivers also loves to use his tight ends, but fantasy owners shouldn't go overboard with their expectations for Henry. With the Chargers utilizing a more balanced offense this past season, Rivers attempted his fewest passes in the last five years, and the team will continue to use that offensive mindset. Henry will have to battle Keenan Allen, emerging red-zone weapon Mike Williams and pass-catching backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler for a pool of targets that won't be much bigger than it was this past season. Henry still looks like a solid TE1 selection once the elites at the position come off the draft board.

Receiving: 23 Receptions, 281 Yards, 3 TD.
