News: 1 day agoHenry (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans after practicing in a limited fashion this past week.
Spin: The same applies to fellow tight end Jonnu Smith (shoulder), with the Patriots having listed a total of 10 players as questionable for the contest. Fortunately, the duo's Week 12 status will be clarified prior to the first wave of games Sunday, with New England and Tennessee kicking off at 1:00 p.m. ET. Though Henry's been working in a timeshare with Smith, he's been more productive from a fantasy perspective, recording a 33-378-7 stat line in 11 games compared to Smith's 22-210-1 totals through 10 contests.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Henry signed with New England after five seasons with the Chargers. The 2016 second-round pick is coming off back-to-back top-12 fantasy campaigns despite missing six games during the stretch. Durability has been a major problem area for Henry, as he's yet to manage a 16-game season in his career. Henry finished eighth among TEs in targets and receptions last season, but his volume is likely to decrease this season with Jonnu Smith also on the depth chart. Whereas Smith is a short-area/RAC weapon, Henry has done a lot of his damage downfield, so perhaps he'll hit for the occasional big play. Of course, considering the Patriots' run-heavy scheme and how rare it is for one team to produce two fantasy relevant TEs, Henry will be hard to trust as anything more than a mid-to-back-end TE2.
