The Chargers are on the road to Miami this week, taking on a Dolphins pass defense that’s been pretty effective this season. So what does that mean for tight end Hunter Henry’s likely fantasy football production levels?
Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers TE Hunter Henry
Henry had just 33 yards last week against the Raiders, but he was targeted seven times, coming up with four catches. He had 33 yards the week before that too. He has only topped 50 yards in a game once this season, back in Week 3, and he has just one touchdown, which came back in Week 5.
However, he averages nearly seven targets per game, regardless of the opponent. That kind of volume makes him a decent play most weeks, if for no other reason than the fact that tight end fantasy production is crap this year
The Dolphins have been pretty good against tight ends this year, but they did give up two touchdowns to Arizona’s tight ends last week, the first time all season Miami has allowed anyone at the position to score.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Hunter Henry.
