Los Angeles Chargers Fantasy Spin

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said the team is "hopeful" to get Hunter Henry (knee) back this season. Lynn made it clear the team wouldn't be placing Henry on injured reserve, leaving the option open for him to return late in the year. It only took eight months for Henry to recover from a torn ACL and play 14 snaps in Los Angeles' Divisional Round game against the Patriots last season, but he also wasn't dealt a season-ending injury the year prior. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Henry's facing a 4-6 week absence, so it's possible the 24-year-old does return sooner than expected. Austin Ekeler's the primary offensive beneficiary while Henry recovers.

Detroit Lions Fantasy Spin

Matthew Stafford completed 27-of-45 passes for 385 yards and three touchdowns in the Lions' 27-27, Week 1 tie with the Cardinals. Stafford was aided by overtime, but his 385 yards were 38 more than he managed in any 2018 start. Stafford couldn't make a play when it mattered most late in the fourth quarter and overtime, but he was dealing early, and found first-rounder T.J. Hockenson for a scintillating 6/131/1. Fellow newcomer Danny Amendola also went 7/104/1. Of course, the eruption was almost certainly a one off against one of the league's worst defenses. Although shootout conditions could once again develop against the Chargers in Week 2, Stafford will firmly remain a QB2.
