Hunter Henry has been one of the most important parts of the New England Patriots' offensive resurgence. The sixth-year tight end has 33 receptions for 378 yards and 7 touchdowns, which ties him for the seventh-most TDs in the league.

While his status for the Patriots' Week 12 game was up in the air due to a neck injury, it sounds like the 26-year-old will be able to play.

Hunter Henry Fantasy Outlook

Assuming he's active against the Tennessee Titans, he should be a low-end TE1 this week. But he could have a hard time putting up points if Tennessee holds him out of the end zone. Henry hasn't seen more than four targets since Week 5, but he's kept his value by scoring a whopping 7 TDs over the past eight weeks.

Still, Tennessee has only allowed 3 touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season, so this could be a slower day for Henry. He's a low-end TE1 in Week 12 NFL action.
