Hunter Henry is one of the best tight ends in the sport when healthy. As is the case with so many Los Angeles Chargers stars, however, Henry has struggled to stay on the field. He's missed a combined 20 games over the past two seasons, including four last year.

If he's healthy he's going to be a top-tier tight end in fantasy football as well, though his injury history makes him a risky selection.

Hunter Henry Fantasy Football Outlook

He's currently coming off the board with an average draft position (ADP) of TE8, per FantasyPros. That puts him just one spot behind Evan Engram, which is fitting, as both tight ends are immense talents who struggle to stay healthy.

If he plays a full season, Henry is likely to return value at that TE8 ADP without breaking a sweat. His 12.5 PPR points per game made him the TE8 in 2019. He was fantasy's TE5 once he returned from injury in Week 6, though, finishing just 7.2 points behind Zach Ertz and Darren Waller.

The switch from Philip Rivers to Tyrod Taylor could impact his value some, but Henry's just too talented to finish outside the top-eight TEs if healthy.

Henry is a high-risk, high-reward target. But after the top five, the position can be a bit of a crapshoot, anyway. He checks in at TE8 in our 2020 fantasy football rankings.
