Who would you start out of these 3 Hunter Henry, Ian Thomas, or Tyler Higbee and why do you like him over the others? Thanks

After a short outing in Week 13 (2/10 on three targets), Henry managed only two more catches in his last game but he did score a TD while gaining 39 yards. He failed to offer an edge in five games (6/97, 4/47, 7/84, 4/30/1, and 6/69) after Henry flashed in Week 6 (8/100/2) in his first game back in the starting lineup after missing four weeks with an injury. Over his last eight games, he caught 39 balls for 476 yards and four TDs on 56 targets suggesting that he’s the third option in the Chargers’ passing game behind Keenan Allen and the RB position. The Vikings are 18th in TE defense (11.85 FPPG – 79/729/1 on 125 targets), with one team delivering an impact game (OAK – 14/135). With only seven targets over the previous two games, Fantasy owners have started to be gun shy about Henry. His stats grade well while remaining a top scoring threat in the passing game for the Chargers in the red zone. Viable based on his salary and scoring upside.
Higbee turned from a boring, no pulse player to an eye-opening stud over the last two games (7/107/1 and 7/116) while receiving 19 targets. Over his first ten games in a split role, Higbee caught only 26 passes for 212 yards and one TD on 33 targets. The Rams have looked more to the TE position over their previous ten games (66/768/3 on 99 targets). The Cowboys sit 21st in TE defense (12.44 FPPG – 70/691/5 on 95 targets). The Cowboys struggled vs. TEs in three contests (NYG – 12/124/1, PHI – 6/107/1, and MIN – 9/48/2). His success will draw attention, but his career resume says the beat can’t go on.
