Even with Antonio Gates back from injury, Hunter Henry has remained a viable fantasy tight end in San Diego.

Hunter Henry has been a pleasant surprise for the San Diego Chargers amid their 1-4 start.

The rookie tight end has stepped up and taken on a big role in this offense after Danny Woodhead and Keenan Allen were lost for the season, followed by Antonio Gates missing two games due to a hamstring injury.

That helped lead to Henry catching 12 passes for 207 yards and two scores over the past three games. Last week, Henry caught three passes for 74 yards and a score, even with Gates back in the lineup.

However, Henry has been doing his damage against bad defenses. He is now facing a Denver Broncos defense that ranks near the top of every category, including third in passing defense while allowing just three passing scores this season.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Henry as the 16th-best tight end for Week 6. He is going against a Broncos defense allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season.

Keep Henry on the bench this week.
