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.

Fantasy Spin: 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.

Jul 11 3:20pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry isn't expecting a long-term contract extension before the deadline of Wednesday, July 15, so he expects to play the 2020 season under the $10.6 million franchise tag. The 25-year-old doesn't seem to be too worried about it, though, and he's focused on the 2020 season. He views this year as a prove-it deal because he hasn't played a full season in his four-year career due to injuries. Henry spent May and June working out with rookie quarterback Justin Herbert and recently had throwing sessions with Tyrod Taylor. Henry had career highs with 55 catches and 652 receiving yards in 2019. Among tight ends, Henry has the best passer rating when targeted at 132.3 since 2016. He's surely a top-10 fantasy tight end, but injuries and a downgrade at QB limit his overall ceiling.

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 tight end Hunter Henry caught 72.4 percent of the passes intended for him last year in his first season after tearing his ACL in 2018. He had a positive catch-rate difference of over eight percent and caught 60 percent of his targets in the end zone for three of his five total touchdowns. For a tight end, his 10.2 air yards per target would've been good for even the top receivers. Henry did this with a tight-window percentage of just 13.2 percent, so he definitely knows how to find the soft spots in an opposing defense. The 25-year-old has an issue with staying healthy, though, and he'll be dealing with a QB change in 2020. But if he can stay on the field, Henry should easily be a top-10 fantasy tight end.

May 24 2:20pm ET

Although Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is looking for a long-term deal, he's also fine with playing the 2020 season under the franchise tag. The deadline for the two sides to work out a long-term extension is July 15. Henry has made no mention of a potential holdout this summer. The 25-year-old has struggled with injuries in his four seasons and played in only 12 games in 2019, but he had a career-high 55 catches for 652 yards and five touchdowns and was still a top-10 fantasy tight end at season's end. Even with Philip Rivers out of town and either quarterback Tyrod Taylor or rookie first-rounder Justin Herbert at the helm, Henry will be a top-10 fantasy tight end target on draft day.

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.

Fantasy Spin: 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.

From TheHuddle

May 23 2:53pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry ranked seventh among all pass-catchers in 2019 with a plus-8.4 percent catch rate above expectation.

Fantasy Spin: 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.

From TheHuddle

May 3 10:33pm ET

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.'

From TheHuddle

Apr 29 6:53pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry said he is not sure how close he is to a long-term contract with the Chargers. Henry said the two sides were close earlier in the offseason, but the talks were delayed.

Fantasy Spin: Henry still has a few months to reach an agreement with the Chargers, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He will be working with a new quarterback in 2020 but should still be one of the better tight ends in the NFL. He can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Apr 16 6:03pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry officially signed his franchise tag for the 2020 season Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Spin: Henry is a surefire TE1 despite prior injury concerns and the Chargers' murky quarterback situation. Few at the position possess his upside.

From TheHuddle

Apr 16 11:23am ET

With veteran QB Tyrod Taylor expected to be the Los Angeles Chargers QB1 entering the season, he may need to rely more on TE Hunter Henry according to Jeff Miller, of the LA Times, as he adjusts to being a starting quarterback again. Taylor has been a backup for the most part the past two seasons, throwing just seven passes in the regular season dating back to Week 4 of 2018. Henry missed four games with injury last season, but still had 55 receptions for 652 yards and five touchdowns.

Fantasy Spin: Henry has high-end TE1 talent, but also carries major risk in the injury department. He has yet to play a full 16-game season in his career. Taylor should only be considered as a backup option in deeper leagues.

From TheHuddle

Apr 15 3:33pm ET

The expectation is that the Los Angeles Chargers, per the LA Times' Jeff Miller, will eventually sign TE Hunter Henry to a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline. Henry, as reported, signed his one-year, $10.6 million franchise tender recently, but he wants to be with the team long term and the feeling from the Chargers is mutual.

Fantasy Spin: Henry once again missed time last season, which has become a norm for him, but he still cracked the top-10 in PPR formats. He remains a high-upside, high-risk option in fantasy circles.

From TheHuddle

Apr 13 7:00pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is signing his franchise tender on Monday, according to a source. It will lock him in for 2020 and guarantees his roughly $10 million salary. The two sides can still work on a long-term extension up until July 15. Henry hasn't played a full season in his four years, including missing all of 2018 due to injury, but he can be one of the top-tier tight ends in fantasy and real life if he can stay healthy for a full season. The 25-year-old second-round pick in 2016 caught a career-high 55 passes for 652 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games in 2019. Henry has 17 career TDs in 41 games played and will be a risk/reward TE1 for fantasy owners.

Apr 13 5:13pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers franchise free-agent TE Hunter Henry signed his one-year tender offer Monday, April 13, according to a source. He is scheduled to make around $10 million in 2020.

Fantasy Spin: Henry likely will see plenty of targets in the passing game and is one of the better tight ends in the NFL when healthy. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Mar 13 1:40pm ET

The Los Angeles Chargers placed the franchise tag on tight end Hunter Henry on Friday, according to sources. This was widely expected and ensures that Falcons impending free-agent tight end Austin Hooper will be the top tight end on the open market. Henry, 25, had a career-high 55 catches for 652 yards and five touchdowns in only 12 games for the Bolts last season. He has incredible upside after just three years in the NFL, but he's yet to play more than 15 games in a single season due to various injuries. He's more risky than the upper echelon of fantasy tight ends for that reason, but he has high-end potential if he stays on the field. His true ceiling will be more clear once we know who will be the Chargers quarterback in 2020.

From RotoBaller

Mar 13 1:33pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry on Friday, March 13, received the franchise tag.

Fantasy Spin: Henry finished 2019 with career highs in targets (76), receptions (55) and receiving yards (652) but still missed four games -- bringing his four-year total to 23. If he can stay reasonably healthy and the Bolts don't take a huge step back at quarterback, he'll be in the TE1 consideration this summer.

From TheHuddle

Mar 12 9:53pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry's new contract is a top priority this offseason, according to general manager Tom Telesco. 'We'll figure out all the finances, the cap and the performance, however it fits,' Telesco said. 'He's a draft pick of ours. As you know, our philosophy is to re-sign our own when we can.'

Fantasy Spin: Henry has battled injuries throughout his career, but he's delivered TE1 production when healthy. His value could take a bit of dip with the Chargers moving on from Philip Rivers, but he's still a top-10 option at the position.

From TheHuddle

Mar 2 10:00pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry will likely receive the franchise tag. Henry has had trouble staying healthy in his three seasons -- he hasn't played a full season yet -- but when healthy he's a high-end tight end for fantasy purposes. There remains uncertainty over who will be the Bolts starting quarterback next year with Philip Rivers out of the picture, but Henry should still be seen as a TE1 regardless. The 25-year-old posted a career-high 55 catches for 652 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games last season. He managed eight touchdowns his rookie season.

From RotoBaller

Mar 2 2:23pm ET

Impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry (Chargers) is expected to receive the franchise tag from the Los Angeles Chargers if the two sides are unable to reach a long-term deal before March 12, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

From TheHuddle

Feb 27 11:53pm ET

Impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry (Chargers) is becoming a more likely candidate to receive a long-term contract offer from the Los Angeles Chargers than a transition tag in the coming days, according to sources via the Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.
