Fantasy Football: Why Hunter Henry could finish as a top 5 TE in 2020

Attempting to find a viable tight end in fantasy football can be seemingly impossible unless you have one of Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Zach Ertz, Mark Andrews, or Darren Waller. While he isn’t currently mentioned in that group, Hunter Henry could find himself being included in that assortment of tight ends heading into the 2021 season.

For that to happen, Henry will need to put together a spectacular campaign for the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020. At the same time, it would be beneficial if Henry can remain on the field for all 16 games this season. In his first four seasons, Henry has been sidelined for 23 games — missing the entire 2018 campaign due to a torn ACL.

Despite his injury concerns, Henry has shown plenty of flashes of being a talented pass-catcher for the Chargers. Similar to the top-tier tight ends, Henry can create mismatches, causing headaches for opposing defensive coordinators.

While some people are wary of Henry changing quarterbacks from Philip Rivers, his new situation could prove to be beneficial for him. Given his previous experience in Anthony Lynn’s offense, Tyrod Taylor is expected to start for the Chargers in Week 1. In light of that, here’s why Henry could finish as a top-five tight end in fantasy football in 2020.
