The Chargers have placed the franchise tag on TE Hunter Henry, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That keeps Henry with the team for at least 2020. He's struggled with injuries, missing all of the 2018 regular season with a torn right ACL and 4 games with a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee this past year. But Henry finished 16th among TEs in PPR points per game as a rookie in 2016, 7th in 2017 and 9th in 2019. He's still just 25 -- and the Chargers obviously remain high on him. The concern for his 2020 fantasy prospects is who will be under center for the Chargers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers TE Hunter Henry is "trending towards returning to the field today." Henry is obviously not a safe fantasy bet in his first game back from a leg fracture. But in the volatile current TE landscape, he's an immediate option.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers. He put in a full practice on Friday. HC Anthony Lynn said that Henry will be on a snap count if he plays, but he'd still be a viable fantasy starter considering the dearth of quality options at the position. Of course, the late kickoff makes this a tough situation for fantasy owners. We’ll look for an update on Henry on Sunday morning.
