The veteran tight end excelled in his first season on Foxborough last year. Starting 10 games, Henry hauled in 50 of 75 targets for 603 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns. His production led to him being ranked as the seventh best fantasy tight end in standard leagues and 10th best in PPR formats.

Start or sit in Week 1?

If/when the Pats make it down to the red zone on Sunday, look for quarterback Mac Jones to hunt Henry for a potential touchdown. Start him.
