Summary

If there was a silver lining to Henry's 2018 ACL tear, it's that it happened during OTAs in May, allowing for a full recovery seven months before 2019 training camp. The fact that he was able to return for some postseason action should put to bed any concern over his recovery and conditioning. And the Chargers' willingness to trot him out at all makes a bold statement about their expectations for him. Henry is a big, speedy target over the middle and up the seams: over 2016-17 he recorded 26 catches of 15 yards or more across 29 games. He's also a touchdown machine, finding the end zone on 12 of his 115 career targets. (For reference's sake, that's a stronger rate than Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce, or Zach Ertz have posted over the last three years.) The tight end position is shaky and clustered in fantasy drafts, and Henry is stepping right back into the thick of the TE1 tier. Few of his peers can boast his offensive role or physical ability, and only a handful look like stronger fantasy prospects. Henry looks like a comfortable TE1 pick once the top 5-6 options are off the board, and he offers dynamic top-3 upside. (May 15)
