News: 3 days agoHenry logged 46 of a possible 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 37-26 loss to the Ravens, en route to catching his only target for eight yards, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Spin: Meanwhile, fellow tight end Jonnu Smith, who was on the field for 32 snaps in the contest, caught all four of his targets for 25 yards. Back-to-back one-target outings don't inspire confidence with regard to Henry's Week 4 fantasy prospects, and with quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) now on the mend, Henry's upside in the coming weeks could hinge on building a rapport with veteran-signal caller Brian Hoyer.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Patriots made waves by signing both Henry and Jonnu Smith last offseason, but it didn't take long for the former to emerge as the clear leader of the group. Granted, he wasn't targeted a ton (19th at the position), but Henry was very busy near the goal line, ranking first in touchdowns (nine), third in expected TDs (7.7) and second in end zone targets (12). Henry ended up 10th in fantasy points, marking his third consecutive top-12 fantasy campaign. He did see a late-season boost in targets and, coupled with his heavy goal-line usage and Mac Jones' strong play, the 27-year-old tight end is very much in the TE1 discussion.
