Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Henry began the practice week with a DNP due to illness, so it stands to reason he tested positive. Either way, he won't be available to fantasy owners in their league championship game. Donald Parham is the next man up for the Chargers, but he would be a desperation play at best. Other options that could be available and have some decent Week 16 upside include Austin Hooper, Irv Smith Jr., Cole Kmet and Dan Arnold.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (illness) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Henry still has a good chance to play Sunday of Week 16, and he stands to see a significant increase in his workload with WR Keenan Allen bothered by a hamstring injury. Henry will need to be in fantasy lineups.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Hunter was the only one of LA's top four offensive players not to carry an injury designation, and he led the team with seven targets. Henry hasn't had the big year many were expecting, but his weekly upside keeps him as a viable TE1.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 16, and doesn't carry an injury designation into the Week 15 game against the Las Vegas Raiders Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Henry has struggled with consistency while working with rookie QB Justin Herbert. He'll be a low-end TE1 option in a more appealing matchup against the injury-ravaged Raiders' secondary Thursday.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (hip) did not participate in practice Monday, Dec. 14. The Chargers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check on Henry's status later in the week. He has caught at least four passes in six of the last seven games and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in most leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry had six receptions (on eight targets) for 41 yards on Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: It was another decent showing from Henry, who has teased really getting on the same page with Herbert this year but has generally posted middling numbers for most of 2020. Still, at a weak fantasy position, Henry remains a TE1 versus Las Vegas.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught seven passes for 67 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Henry has been targeted at least seven times in eight of his 11 games this season and has two touchdowns in the last three games. He is one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a weekly starting option.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught four of his seven targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in a 34-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Henry doesn't have much of a ceiling, but he has at least four catches and 30 yards in four straight games, and he has been targeted at least six times in three straight. He's a serviceable, low-end TE1.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry ended up with four receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Henry discovered the end zone for the first time since Week 5 in New Orleans on a Monday night. He has been consistent, going for three or more receptions in five straight, and eight of nine games overall. He is a solid low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Chargers host the Jets in Week 1.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught four of seven targets for 33 yards in Week 9 versus the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: It's the third time in the last four games Henry has finished with exactly four grabs, and the 4-33-0 is the exact same one he posted in Week 8. He did have a shot at a late touchdown in this one, however, but he was held by Cory Littleton in the end zone and Gabe Nabers scored on the next play. It hasn't been a banner season by any means so far for Henry, but he seems to have established a seven-target floor. That kind of volume for a tight end will eventually pay off, leaving him as a decent TE1 moving forward, including in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
