Game update: Hunter Henry has been quiet in Week 4 even as his team has a big lead on the Bucs. Justin Herbert has targeted Henry once in the passing game but Henry has nothing to show for it.

The Los Angeles Chargers are looking to bounce back from a loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ tough run defense could make things tough for the Chargers, who rank second in the NFL in rushing attempts. Pass catchers like Hunter Henry could be important for rookie quarterback Justin Herbert.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers TE Hunter Henry

Henry has been heavily featured in Los Angeles offense and is second to Keenan Allen in targets (23), receptions (16), and receiving yards (206). Herbert appears to prefer the tight end over Mike Williams, who combined for three receptions and 31 receiving yards in Weeks 2 and 3. The young quarterback could be forced into making quick decisions by Tampa Bay’s defense line, which bodes well for Henry’s production.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Henry is a priority for Los Angeles and will likely be right behind Allen and Austin Ekeler in targets. He’s worth a start in season-long fantasy and DFS.
