Henry tore his ACL during the spring last year and missed all of last year. Henry did return for the playoffs, though, and was active for the Chargers last game of the season. He played against the Patriots and got one target in that game. Henry should be ready to go for the start of this year and will be the starter for the Chargers. Henry is a pretty complete tight end. He is a good athlete and does well as a blocker. He runs good routes and is athletic enough to make plenty of big plays.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Henry can perform as a low-end No. 1 tight end, especially if you consider how thin the position is these days. He has some upside in this offense, an offense with a history of producing good tight end numbers. Expect around 60 receptions for 700 yards with seven or eight scores.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry missed the boat on his third-year breakout, mainly because he missed the entire 2018 season with a torn ACL suffered during OTAs. He technically returned for one game to make a cameo appearance in the team's playoff loss to New England but he didn't catch a pass. The only silver lining is that his injury occurred early enough that it didn't affect fantasy owners in re-draft leagues and he should be 100% entering this season.The optimism is definitely there for a Henry breakout, as he is the fourth TE being selected in NFC leagues. There is no realistic threat to his playing time, as Antonio Gates is a free agent once more and Virgil Green has proven to be a mediocre backup. Henry should be one of the primary red zone threats and the third or fourth target on a dynamic Chargers offense. He is worthy of an early selection but the injury risk must be acknowledged. Sites such as Inside Injuries give Henry a nearly 50/50 chance of suffering some sort of injury this season, so the risk is baked in with the potential reward.

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry has been making impressive catches during spring practices, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. 'Hunter is just doing what Hunter Henry does,' Lynn said. 'He makes plays.'
Fantasy Spin: Henry's ability has never been questioned, but an injury derailed what was supposed to be a breakout 2018 campaign. A year later, his upside hasn't changed, and Henry should be viewed as a low-end TE1 candidate.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry (knee) said he's feeling good after missing the entire 2018 regular season after tearing his ACL last May. I'm pretty much full-go, Henry explained. Everything feels good. It still gets sore every once in a while, but it's nothing too bad. It's nothing that's crazy. It's just a workout soreness. The tight end worked with the other players during workouts on Monday and should be fully ready for Week 1. The 24-year-old should be the team's top pass-catching tight end in 2019 after he caught 45 passes for 579 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games in 2017. Henry has the chance to be a high-end TE1 if he stays healthy.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs, according to general manager Tom Telesco.
Fantasy Spin: Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Henry should open the year as the starting tight end for the Chargers and a low-end TE1 candidate for fantasy owners.
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) said he still has not fully recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament and will take the next few months to continue his rehab.
Fantasy Spin: Henry will be the team's starting tight end next season and should be ready for the start of training camp. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues in 2019.
