Hunter Henry Excels In The End Zone

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry caught 72.4 percent of the passes intended for him last year in his first season after tearing his ACL in 2018. He had a positive catch-rate difference of over eight percent and caught 60 percent of his targets in the end zone for three of his five total touchdowns. For a tight end, his 10.2 air yards per target would've been good for even the top receivers. Henry did this with a tight-window percentage of just 13.2 percent, so he definitely knows how to find the soft spots in an opposing defense. The 25-year-old has an issue with staying healthy, though, and he'll be dealing with a QB change in 2020. But if he can stay on the field, Henry should easily be a top-10 fantasy tight end.

Hunter Henry Fine With Playing On Franchise Tag

Although Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is looking for a long-term deal, he's also fine with playing the 2020 season under the franchise tag. The deadline for the two sides to work out a long-term extension is July 15. Henry has made no mention of a potential holdout this summer. The 25-year-old has struggled with injuries in his four seasons and played in only 12 games in 2019, but he had a career-high 55 catches for 652 yards and five touchdowns and was still a top-10 fantasy tight end at season's end. Even with Philip Rivers out of town and either quarterback Tyrod Taylor or rookie first-rounder Justin Herbert at the helm, Henry will be a top-10 fantasy tight end target on draft day.

Tyrod Taylor Expected To Be Week 1 Starter

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter in 2020, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. The Bolts took Oregon QB Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick in last month's draft, but the Chargers remain high on Taylor, especially since head coach Anthony Lynn has previous experience with Taylor as his signal-caller in Buffalo. The lack of on-field work this spring due to COVID-19 isn't helping Herbert's cause to start right off the bat in his rookie season, either. We could see Herbert on the sidelines much longer than expected in 2020, which is great news for Taylor's undervalued stock as a QB2 with upside in this stacked Chargers offense.

Chargers Considered Cam Newton

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said in an interview with CBS Sports Radio that the team "absolutely" considered signing quarterback Cam Newton after he was released by the Panthers, saying, "We did take a look at that." But instead the Bolts stuck with Tyrod Taylor and second-year backup Easton Stick before drafting Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick in last month's draft. Lynn said he feels "really good about the quarterback room that I have." Newton, 31, missed 14 games last year due to a foot injury that required surgery, and a shoulder injury the prior season has hurt his stock on the open market, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic which has prevented teams from looking at him with their medical personnel. Newton is bound for a backup gig in 2020, but he might wait until later this summer to find a home.

Mike Pouncey Cleared To Play

Los Angeles Chargers center Mike Pouncey (neck) said he has been cleared to play by the doctors that performed his surgery. "I feel great," Pouncey said. The 30-year-old played in just five games last season because of his neck injury, but it looks like he'll be healthy and ready to go for training camp this summer. Pouncey spent the first seven years of his career with the Dolphins before coming over to the Bolts in 2018. Having the four-time Pro Bowler healthy for the first season without Philip Rivers will be very important for this offensive line. He'll be snapping the pigskin to either Tyrod Taylor or rookie first-rounder Justin Herbert in 2020.
