2018 Fantasy Outlook
The trusty possession receiver signed his restricted second-round tender in April after once again upping his year-over-year production in 2017. Humphries established career bests in receptions (61) and receiving yardage (631) last season, but he faces increasingly tough odds to approximate those numbers in 2018. Not only is last season's third-rounder Chris Godwin all but assured of a larger role, but even this year's fifth-rounder, Justin Watson, could eat into some of Humphries' targets. Humphries' savvy out of the slot and in the short- and intermediate-passing game should still afford him a decent amount of opportunity, but the progressive ascension he's enjoyed as a PPR asset thus far in his career is likely to encounter at least a modest bump in the road. It doesn't help that QB Jameis Winston will start the season with a three-game suspension. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year contract with the Buccaneers in April of 2018.
Generates 39 all-purpose yards in win
WRTampa Bay Buccaneers
September 17, 2018
Humphries brought in one of two targets for eight yards, returned one kickoff for 13 yards and ran back three punts for 18 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-21 win over the Eagles on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
As was the case Week 1, Humphries was involved as the primary returner and shared third-receiver duties with Chris Godwin. Both Humphries and Godwin played 29 snaps apiece from scrimmage, but the latter saw four more targets overall. Godwin could eventually overtake the fourth-year wideout due to his superior overall talent, but Humphries' crafty work out of the slot should continue affording him some serviceable playing time throughout the season.

2016
As much of a pleasant surprise as Humphries was in his rookie 2015 campaign, he was even better in his sophomore season. Humphries tallied seven receptions of 20-plus yards, including two of more than 40, on his way to 55 receptions for 622 yards and two touchdowns in 2016. The Clemson product also continued to cement his reputation as an effective chain-mover, with 27 of his 55 receptions going for first downs. Humphries added 237 yards on punt returns, placing him just outside the top 10 in the NFL in that category. The Bucs made major moves to improve the pass-catching positions during free agency and the draft, however, which could certainly result in a reduction of the 82 targets Humphries saw last season.
The undrafted Clemson product was a revelation in 2015 after veteran Louis Murphy's season-ending knee injury, often serving as a reliable third-down presence for quarterback Jameis Winston throughout the duration of the campaign. Humphries parlayed 18 of his 27 catches on the season into first downs, displaying impressive reliability for a rookie who initially worked his way onto the squad through a mini-camp tryout. The 22-year-old certainly is no downfield threat—with his longest reception going for 27 yards—but displayed both a knack for finding soft spots in zones, and a steady pair of hands. The aforementioned injury to Murphy and in-season health issues for fellow wideout Vincent Jackson and starting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins opened up playing time and targets for Humphries last season, but the upcoming campaign may afford much less opportunity if everyone remains on the field. Humphries also faces plenty of competition for a backup role, starting with the returning Murphy, and extending to the likes of fellow sophomore pass-catchers Donteea Dye and Kenny Bell. However, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound receiver is used to carving out a niche on crowded depth charts, managing 127 catches for 1,097 yards in his collegiate career despite having the likes of future NFL luminaries DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant ahead of him in the pecking order.
