Hunter Henry and the Chargers will head to Buffalo this weekend as they look to build on a one week winning streak. The Buffalo defense is particularly friendly to tight ends, as they have allowed the second most points in the league to the position so far this year. Is there any doubt that Hunter Henry belongs in your starting lineup in Week 12? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers TE Hunter Henry

Hunter Henry is currently averaging 10.3 points per game so far this season and he is the 7th ranked player at the position. He now has two straight double digit performances and he is in a good position to add a third against a Buffalo defense that has allowed an average of 5.9 receptions and 64.2 yards per game to opposing tight ends. They have also allowed six touchdowns to the position. Tight ends capable of double digit scoring are few and far between this season and for that reason Hunter Henry should be started as a TE1.
