Fantasy Football Post-MNF Waiver Wire Advice: Chad Henne

Since we pride ourselves on getting this out early, I submitted the Week 2 waiver wire advice column prior to the Monday night games. When applicable, I will submit updates to the column with any waiver-worthy players from Monday night.

So don’t start going Ron Jaworski on me and cussing about missing these games! I’ve got you covered.

As luck would have it, only one man stood out among the fantasy neglected on Monday night. And that man was none other than…

Potentially loss amidst Tom Brady’s yardage-fest on Monday night was an even more surprising performance from Henne.

In all, he threw for 416 yards and two scores while running for a team-high 59 yards and another TD. This is actually Henne’s third 300-plus yard game in five career matchups against the Pats.

Even outside of that, this isn’t the first time Henne has shown flashes of “getting it.”

While I’m not completely sold based on one game, the Dolphins displayed virtually no running game throughout, which means Henne may bear more of the offensive burden that originally thought out of sheer necessity. That means good things for his yardage totals, but there were a couple red flags:

  • First, Henne really struggled in the red zone, as the Dolphins converted on just half of their six trips inside the 20-yard line.
  • Second, the O-Line gave up four sacks to a New England pass rush that really struggled last year. Sure, the Pats tried to address that in the offseason, but Henne isn’t a guy who has typically excelled under pressure.

If your backup is someone like Matt Hasselbeck, Kerry Collins, or Jason Campbell, Henne is absolutely worth a look. I just need to see more than one game before viewing him as any more than a low-end QB2.

In order to reach your goals in fixing your credit ranking you have to ensure that from this moment in time you pay your entire monthly dues promptly prior to their planned date. Really it is significant on the grounds that by never accomplishing that area, all other activities that you will decide to use to improve your credit positioning will not be effective.
