2020 Fantasy Outlook
Humphries signed a 4-year, $36 million deal with the Titans during the 2019 offseason to serve as the team's primary slot receiver. However, he failed to make much of an impact by averaging only 3.1 receptions and 31.2 yards per game in his first season in Tennessee. Heading into 2020, he should maintain his role in three-wide receiver sets. However, Humphries has been surpassed by promising wideout A.J. Brown and will have to earn more targets than Corey Davis to make a notable impact. Given the Titans' low volume passing offense, Humphries will most likely be limited once again in 2020.

Should keep slot role
WRTennessee Titans
April 26, 2020
Humphries should remain the Titans' primary slot receiver after the team did not add to its receiving corps in the draft.
ANALYSIS
Humphries battled an ankle injury in his first campaign in Tennessee, limiting him to 12 games in the regular season. However, he should return to his role in the slot, where he drew 78.3 percent of his snaps in 2019. Still, with both A.J. Brown and Corey Davis still on the roster, Humphries may find it difficult to repeat his 76-catch effort from the 2018 campaign.

2016
Humphries parlayed a career-best season into a four-year, $36 million deal with the Titans in March. Usually lining up in the slot, Humphries was reliable for Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston, catching 76 of 105 targets (72.4 percent) and dropping only three passes all year. At 5-11, 195, and with 4.53 speed, Humphries is nothing special athletically, but he runs good routes and has enough quickness to find space in the short areas of the field. Corey Davis is still the Titans' top target, tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) should be back in time for training camp, and the team drafted A.J. Brown in the second round, but Humphries' contact virtually assures he'll be involved in one of the league's more modest passing games.
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.
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.
