Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry will likely end up signing a four-year deal worth 'somewhere between $34 million and $38 million' over the life of the contract, according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic.
Impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry is believed to be a candidate for the transition tag if he and the Los Angeles Chargers can't reach a long-term agreement before the start of free agency, according to sources via Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry may never surpass Antonio Gates as the greatest tight end in franchise history, but he may be remembered for being the recipient of Philip Rivers' final touchdown pass with the team. Henry brought in the eight-yard sling from Rivers late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest, putting LA within striking distance of the Chiefs. Unfortunately, the team would fall short. Henry would finish with 42 receiving yards on five catches, and the touchdown bumped him up to five on the season. If he can stay healthy, Henry could end up being one of the top tight ends in the game next season.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is completely overshadowed this week due to all the other storylines racing around the Chargers locker room, but he could be one of the team's biggest players. When Henry returned from his injury earlier this season, he went on a tear where he recorded 60+ receiving yards or a touchdown in five of six games in a row. Since then, he's been relegated to being an afterthought, recording just one touchdown and zero games with 50 or more receiving yards. The last of those big games was against the Chiefs. Henry could easily be LA's secret weapon that sees the touchdown opportunities while everyone else focuses on the guys shooting for history this week. Even with their defensive improvement, tight ends continue to be KC's defensive kryptonite.
Facing a fantastic matchup, Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry failed to capitalize. Henry was targeted seven times and caught five of the passes, but he was only able to tally 45 yards and no scores. The 9.0 YPC was Henry's third-worst of the season, and for some reason, a Raiders secondary who has failed to stop almost anyone absolutely stymied the Chargers passing game, especially at the tight end position, once again. Henry is still one of the premier tight ends in the game, but the drop in performance over the last few weeks has just been baffling. Henry's best game in the last six weeks was against the Chiefs a month ago, so hopefully, he can pick it up one more time and finish the season on a high note.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught five of his seven targets for 45 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: It was actually one of Hunter's busier outings over the past month, and he had been held to just six total catches in the three previous games combined. Despite the downward trend, he's still a low-end starting option at a thin position.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry gets one more big chance this season to show off against a weak defense. Oakland is coming to town on Sunday, and the crowd is expected to be raucous since the Raiders still own LA. Henry will have the opportunity to quiet the black and silver fans by taking advantage of the very generous secondary that Oakland is bringing with them. The Raiders have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season, and LA will be looking to make a splash of positive energy before they leave the tiny stadium in Carson for good. Henry should be poised to have plenty of opportunities on Sunday.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry did something in Week 15 that he hasn't done since the second game of his NFL career: cough up a fumble. After catching a pass deep in his own territory early in the fourth quarter, a defender stuck his hand right into the ball as he dragged Henry to the ground, and the ball popped out and straight into the waiting arms of another Vikings defender. Fortunately, Henry's mistake wasn't a back-breaking one since the Chargers were already down 22 points at the time and committed six other turnovers on the day. Henry will look to get back on track when the team hosts the Raiders next week.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught two passes for 29 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. He also lost a fumble.
Fantasy Spin: Henry put up big numbers for a while after returning from injury, but he has done very little over the last three weeks, and his fumble was one of seven Chargers turnovers in an ugly performance. Despite that, Henry is a TE1 that can't be left on the bench.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has put up 60 or more receiving yards or a touchdown in seven of his nine games this season, and he'll get another opportunity on Sunday when he faces a Minnesota defense that is surprisingly soft against opposing tight ends. Though the Vikings are above average in just about every defensive category, opposing tight ends have been particularly successful in the fat part of the field. Minnesota has allowed the 10th-most yards to opposing tight ends this season, but they have done a good job of clamping down once they get close to the end zone. Expect Henry to get some opportunities, and he'll probably be able to keep his good games going with some decent numbers.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry was one of a host of players to catch touchdowns against the Jaguars on Sunday, and his was the easiest of the bunch. For some reason, Jacksonville completely lost track of Henry late in the second quarter, and he caught a pass from Philip Rivers where he was so wide open that no defenders were even on the screen on the broadcast. A couple small secondary members met him just before he reached the goal line, but Henry easily ran through the tiny would-be tacklers. The touchdown was Henry's fourth of the season, and he continues to be a very productive member of the offense when healthy.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry caught two of his four targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: Henry has been quiet in recent weeks, finishing with fewer than 40 yards in three of his last four games. That being said, a lack of reliable tight ends makes Henry a low-end TE1 candidate.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry will have his work cut out for him in Week 14. Henry will be facing off against a Jacksonville defense that has been one of the stingiest in the land versus opposing tight ends. Jacksonville's held opposing tight ends to zero touchdowns in the last four weeks, and they're top-10 in limiting the production of opposing tight ends this season. Henry had been on a hot streak until last week when he got shut down by Denver, so he could use a bounce back. Unfortunately, the Jaguars' difficult defense makes a big week unlikely, though most owners won't be able to pass up the tantalizing possibilities of a big week from the young TE.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry was the unfortunate victim of poor cornerback play on Sunday against the Broncos. While this was a good thing for wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, who combined for nearly 200 yards receiving, it meant Henry was regularly passed up as an option on passing downs. Henry finished with just two catches for 10 yards, and LA only ran three plays inside the red zone all game. Expect this to be the exception instead of the rule for Henry. He should be back to being a regular contributor next week.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry had two receptions for 10 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: This was easily Henry's worst game of 2019, falling 20 yards short of previous season low (in a game where he also caught a TD pass). Just chalk it up to a good player having a bad game, and not necessarily due to anything he did as Henry was targeted just three times. He remains a must-start TE1 next Sunday against Jacksonville.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has been a strong option since he returned to the lineup, and he'll likely be one of the team's most important assets this Sunday. The Chargers will be facing the daunting Denver defense, but they've actually been quite susceptible to tight ends over the last month, allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. With Philip Rivers struggling, Chris Harris Jr. patrolling the wideouts, and head coach Anthony Lynn abandoning the run quickly, Henry could be the critical component that the team's offense leans upon.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry tacked another 69 yards onto his season total in Monday night's loss to the Chiefs. He's now either tallied 60+ receiving yards or a touchdown in six of the seven games he's played this season, and he's still averaging 12.5 yards per reception this season. Henry has been in a constant struggle with his health, but he seems to be fully healthy now. When he's at the top of his game, Henry is arguably the best tight end in the NFL, and he's proving it this season. Even with a quarterback who has been struggling, Henry is putting up a fine season.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry posted six receptions for 69 yards on nine targets in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Nov. 18 in Mexico City. He also had a two-point conversion reception.
Fantasy Spin: Henry is a solid low-end TE1, but fantasy owners will need to make alternate plans in Week 12 with his team on a bye.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has been the man since he returned to the team in mid-October, and it doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. Henry has either chalked up 80+ yards or a touchdown in four of his five games back, and with a likely shootout coming against the high-powered Kansas City offense, expect Henry to do one or both once again. Philip Rivers threw to Antonio Gates as one of his most dependable targets for years, and it looks like he trusts Henry to fill those shoes moving forward. Henry should be started in all leagues at this point, as he is one of the very best tight ends in the league when he's healthy.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry didn't have a huge night on Thursday, but he did wind up in the end zone for a score in the second quarter. On third down from the two-yard line, Philip Rivers dropped back to pass while Henry leaked out through the secondary and somehow, no Raiders noticed that he was on the field. Rivers hit Henry in the back of the end zone without an Oakland player within five yards of him. Henry continues to be one of LA's most consistent and dependable targets, and he looks every bit like a worthy successor for Antonio Gates. He'll just need to stay healthy, and if he can do that, he's one of the best in the league.
