Just look at the highlights. He had two touchdown catches. He aligns very well with what Rivers does and will be a big part of the game plan. Not sure he’s the second coming of Antonio Gates, but he’ll put up points.

He looked like the best receiver on the field on either side.

I found It interesting that through 44 attempts, KA only got 6 targets. The Chargers weren't running the ball and were also abusing a weak/inexperienced linebacker core.

He looked good, but I would expect this performance to be closer to anamoly than norm.

He played 66% of the snaps as well. Week 1 he was in on 92%.

I read that PIT likes to focus on stopping the slot WRs, so KA got extra attention last night.
Not all that counts can be counted. Not all that can be counted counts.

Henry looked like he did before the injuries. He did benefit from the Steelers shifting so much coverage to Keenan Allen, but he still got open and made some good catches (especially the first TD in the back of the endzone).

We know Henry is good. Health has been the only obstacle.

It was his first game back from an injury that was initially expected to keep him out longer, of course he was going to be eased in snap count wise.

As long as he's healthy Henry is a TE1 due to both his individual talent and his role in the offense. Obviously health has been an issue for him (and just about every Charger not named Rivers), but I think he's just been a victim of bad luck in a violent game. He doesn't have any re-occuring or degenerative injuries, he's just been getting bad breaks that hopefully stop soon. Keenan was being killed for being "injury prone" at one time too, but he's been fine for several years now, was just able to avoid those bad breaks.

Piling on to say that Henry looked like we should've been expecting. He's belonged in the top dynasty TEs conversation his whole career, but had things like injuries and an old HOFer in his way.

I think the whole Ladarius Green debacle has led to some trust issues with Antonio Gates heir apparents...

I never understood or bought into the Ladarius Green fascination, Henry is legit though.

Only if you think the injuries will continue. Otherwise, you're selling very low. He hasn't done enough yet to get his value back up to where his production will be if he stays healthy. There's no denying his talent.

The entire offense was useless when the game was a contest. Henry started becoming a factor when the Steelers changed their coverages in the 2nd half, but that doesn't matter for Fantasy Football.

It definitely could be. Love HH's talent but his injuries are worrisome. Hope he can stay on the field.
