The tight end position is a tough position in which to find fantasy consistency and Henry seems to finally be able to provide fantasy owners with some confidence that he will be a solid weekly contributor on his team. Will Henry be able to be a reliable asset for fantasy owners once again in Week 13? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers TE Hunter Henry

Hunter Henry won’t have an easy path to success in Week 13, as the Patriots have allowed the 6th fewest points to opposing fantasy tight ends this season.
