Hunter Henry 2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

I see nothing to be excited about. Maybe this is an early overreaction, but I think it destroys the value of both Jonnu and Henry. Agholor just arrived in town, too, so that spreads targets out, as well. Whether it's Cam or another QB in NE, I don't like what this does for either TE.

Both are streamers now and will take turns having a decent game now and then.   They're still a run first team as long as Cam is there.  

This like the guy in your league that spends his first two picks or 2 of 3 on stud TE's, and everyone oooohs as he's supposedly cornered the market.   Then the season starts and it just never works out, even with him flexing one all year long and he winds up with one injured or the other disappoints and gets traded for a borderline RB3 when he's desperate

As long as one of them doesnt murder their friend then im excited  having 2 stud TE's on the team.

Has either of them actually ever been a stud though?  I know both have had major upside and everyone has always been waiting for that breakout, but has it ever come to this point? Maybe the Pats can get least 1 of them or other of them over the hump?

I agree with this.  Jonnu's always looked like a million bucks and made a fair amount of big plays, but i think the blurb on him stated he's never topped 500 yards.  I think Jonnu is someone most fans wanted to see really get showcased since he has that potential, but now he's probably just as risky a weekly play as he was in Nashville.

Henry's always been good, but I never recall him being dominant, and i think that's just what he is- no extra upside.

Pretty sure both made a pro bowl at some point?

Actually. Neither have. 

Exactly. Smith never topped 500 yd, Henry had 650 yd in 2019 and that made him around TE9. 

I think we can all see the potential here, but so far it's just that.

Also, anyone still holding Dalton Keene or Devin Asiasi stock may be somewhat disappointed right now.

Right on schedule!  One of the most consistent and predictable fantasy player there is!  

I assume that's supposed to mean he's always injured, but in fact in the past 5 seasons he missed one season, and played 15, 14, 12 and 14 games the other seasons. It's not really the injuries that prevented him from putting up a big season I think.

Huh… didnt realize that. Why does it seem like he is always getting injured or showing up on the injury report?  
Anyways, I want no part of Henry but I will take Jonnu all day.

Dude lives on the injury report. Even if he's not injured he's questionable and dinged up. I think Jonnu's the one to own here.

Rumor has it that Jonnu will be their gl back… that would be a very Belicheck thing that a Belicheck would do to piss off Damian Harris owners!

As a Damian Harris owner who has repeatedly sworn off owning BB RBs in the past due to his RB proclivities this...sounds about right.   :(

I fully intend on Henry being a top 10 TE this year and the ADP of 160ish is so nice. Smith will get his but I think Hunter will be the #1 target on the team as long as he is on the field

Not sure there will be enough passing volume to sustain both Smith and Henry.
