Summary

The Chargers used Henry as an H-Back with even fewer blocking responsibilities than Gates in 2016. This may continue in 2017, because Henry is an excellent receiver who displayed skill to sneak through the line on misdirection plays to get open. However, Henry will have to improve his blocking if he wants to develop into an every-down star. Most expect this to happen, but Gates was slightly more productive than Henry down the stretch of 2016 and he's had two consecutive years as a top-10 option despite everyone predicting otherwise. As a safeguard against the potential for Gates declining even further this year and Henry not developing as an in-line blocker, the Chargers added veteran Jeff Cumberland as its third option. Cumberland is a competent receiver and blocker who can step in for Gates and keep the two-tight end sets a viable option for the offense. (May 25)
