Prior to the bye week, the Los Angeles Chargers suffered their second overtime loss of the season, falling 30-27 against the New Orleans Saints. Now that they’ve healed up on the bye, the Chargers will get an offense-friendly matchup against the Jaguars. Will this bode well for Hunter Henry?

Fantasy Football analysis: Charges TE Hunter Henry

Through five games, Henry has averaged seven targets, putting him in the fifth spot among all tight ends this season. For many fantasy owners, it was even more encouraging to see him finally find the end-zone in Week 5. If he can find the end-zone with more regularity he returns from decent start to great start.

The Chargers are heavy favorites (-7.5) over the Jaguars, with a team total line of 27.5 points. If we’re going by the odds, that’s an expectation of four touchdowns. Don’t be surprised to watch Henry account for one of those four, especially if he maintains his seven-target per game average.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Henry.
