What to do with Chad Henne in Week 17 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Chad Henne ahead of the Chiefs Week 17 matchup against the Chargers.

With the top spot in the AFC locked up and a first-round bye guaranteed, the Kansas City Chiefs are going to sit quarterback Patrick Mahomes this week, along with a handful of other key starters. To finish out the regular season, they’ll hand over quarterback duties to Chad Henne for Sunday’s finale against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs QB Chad Henne

Normally, Henne might have some fantasy upside since the Chiefs boast such a loaded group of offensive skill players. But with Tyreek Hill and others cooling their heels this week, it’s not clear who exactly Henne will have to throw the ball to in this one. Heck, we don’t have a good idea of who he’ll hand the ball off to in this one either.

Regardless of the opponent, it’s impossible to recommend a signal caller with preseason lineup at his disposal.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Just avoid Chad Henne this week. Don’t take the risk.
