Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Henry has been targeted eight times in each of the first two games of the season and seemed to find instant chemistry with rookie QB Justin Herbert in Week 2. He'll continue to be a mid-tier TE1 so long as he's active on game day.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry had six receptions (on eight targets) for 83 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: After posting 5-73-0 in Week 1 with Tyrod Taylor at the helm, Henry went for 6-83-0 with Justin Herbert. Henry has proven capable of producing no matter who is at quarterback, making him a steady TE1 option going forward.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry had five receptions (on eight targets) for 73 yards during the team's Week 1 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Given the play styles of Tyrod Taylor and Justin Herbert, it should be a big year for Henry, who can operate as a safety valve for game managers and inexperienced rookies alike. He was solid in Week 1 and looks like a quality week-to-week TE1.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry did not reach a long-term agreement with the Chargers before the July 15 deadline and will play under the one-year franchise tag tender offer.
Huddle Up: Henry is coming off a terrific 2019 season and should receive plenty of targets in 2020 not matter the starting quarterback. Henry should be a solid No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry signed his $10.6 million franchise tender this spring, but he remains pessimistic about agreeing to a contract extension with the team less than five days before the July 15 deadline.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry said that he is 'fine' playing under the franchise tag for the 2020 season, although he would still like to agree to a long-term contract extension with the team. Henry said that contract talks have already taken place, although there have been no recent discussions. The NFL deadline for players with franchise tags to sign long-term deals is July 15.
Huddle Up: Despite his injury history and the Chargers' less-than-ideal quarterback situation, Henry should be viewed as a strong starting option in all fantasy formats heading into the 2020 season. The 25-year-old posted career highs in catches (55) and receiving yards (652) despite missing four games last year due to a knee injury.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry ranked seventh among all pass-catchers in 2019 with a plus-8.4 percent catch rate above expectation.
Huddle Up: Henry wound up finishing eighth among tight ends in total fantasy points in 2019 despite missing the first four games of the season with a knee injury. The 2020 wild-card, of course, is the departure of longtime Bolts QB Philip Rivers, but with top-shelf tight end options hard to come by, Henry remains a solid TE1.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry said he is excited to see what a more mobile quarterback can bring to the offense. 'There are so many different things that you can do with a mobile quarterback that can open your offense,' Henry said. 'I'm looking forward to seeing that aspect of our offense grow.'
