Playing Monday

Humphries (hip) is listed as active Monday versus the Seahawks.

Analysis: Despite having practice limitations during Week 12 prep, Humphries will be available to Washington's offense Monday, as he has all season. He'll be welcomed in the receiving corps by both Curtis Samuel (groin) and Logan Thomas (hamstring), but all members of the group take a backseat to No. 1 wideout Terry McLaurin.

Receives questionable tag

Humphries (hip) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Seahawks, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Humphries was limited by the hip injury at practice this week but should have a chance to suit up for Monday Night Football. DeAndre Carter and Cam Sims could be more involved if Humphries is unable to face Seattle.

Nursing hip issue

Humphries was a limited practice participate Friday due to a hip injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Humphries apparently picked up the injury while catching both his targets for 30 yards during last week's matchup with the Panthers. The 28-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for Monday's game versus Seattle if he can practice with no limitations Saturday.

Quiet in win

Humphries secured both of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Humphries played on just 45 percent of Washington's offensive snaps, making little out of his opportunities. The 2021 season has been an underwhelming one for the veteran wideout, as he has yet to find the end zone and is averaging a paltry 25.5 yards per game. Humphries will look to improve upon his performance when Washington hosts Seattle in Week 12, but the 28-year-old remains difficult to trust for fantasy purposes.

Catches one pass in win

Humphries caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 29-19 win over the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Humphries' one target was the lowest of any Washington pass catcher Sunday, though the veteran wideout played on 52 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Humphries has struggled to produce in Washington's offense this season, making him difficult to trust for fantasy purposes. The 28-year-old will look to get more involved in Week 11 when Washington visits the Panthers.

Puts up 36 yards

Humphries caught three of four targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The veteran slot receiver is now averaging 2.6 catches for 26.4 yards on 3.7 targets per game, playing 53-to-70 percent of offensive snaps in each contest. His role hasn't really grown or shrunk while Washington has dealt with WR injuries around him, with Humphries consistently operating as the slot guy for three-wide formations. He'll fill the same role Week 8 at Denver in a matchup between teams with arguably the two most disappointing defenses in the league.

Finishes with negative yardage

Humphries caught one of two targets for a four-yard loss in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Humphries is averaging just 2.5 catches for 24.8 yards per game, struggling to build chemistry with QB Taylor Heinicke. The veteran slot man could even be demoted from the No. 3 receive role at some point, though perhaps not before Week 7 in Green Bay, given that Curtis Samuel (groin) is in danger of missing another game.

Oct 18, 2021 12:47 AM EST

Leading receiver in loss

Humphries caught three of five targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: While the veteran slot receiver didn't see much target volume, Humphries wound up leading Washington in receiving yards as the New Orleans secondary made sure Terry McLaurin wasn't going to beat them. With Dyami Brown (knee) and Cam Sims (hamstring) both banged up, Humphries could see a significant role again in Week 6 in a potentially juicy matchup against Kansas City.

Oct 10, 2021 3:57 PM EST

Targeted once, holds No. 3 role

Humphries caught his lone target for 19 yards in Sunday's 34-30 win over Atlanta.

Analysis: It was a season low for targets, but Humphries actually handled his second-largest snap share (67 percent) of the year in Curtis Samuel's Washington debut. The former Panther mostly took snaps away from rookie Dyami Brown, who has now caught only five of 14 targets for 51 yards (and picked up a knee injury during Sunday's win). It looks like Samuel and Humphries will get most of the playing time alongside Terry McLaurin in Week 5 against New Orleans, but snaps won't necessarily lead to targets and yards for Humphries.

Oct 4, 2021 6:35 AM EST

Catches just one pass

Humphries caught one of four targets for seven yards in Sunday's 43-21 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: The veteran slot man tied for second on the team in targets on a day where Buffalo ate up most of the possession and Taylor Heinicke attempted only 24 passes. Humphries and Logan Thomas are tied for second on the team with 14 targets through three games, but the former has managed just 71 scoreless yards, while the tight end has 117 yards and two TDs. Humphries at least gets a good matchup in Week 4, facing the Falcons in Atlanta.

Sep 26, 2021 7:46 PM EST

Targeted eight times

Humphries caught seven of eight targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Coming off an ugly, run-heavy loss to the Chargers the previous week, Washington displayed a far better passing attack Thursday evening, led by an 11-catch night from Terry McLaurin. Four other players, including Humphries, finished between six and eight targets, with QB Taylor Heinicke throwing for 336 yards and two TDs in his first regular-season start. Humphries is at 9-54-0 on 10 targets through two games, and he should maintain his slot role Week 3 at Buffalo. Reduced playing time could be coming when Curtis Samuel (groin) returns from IR, which technically can happen as soon as Week 4.

Sep 16, 2021 10:34 PM EST

Catches two passes

Humphries caught both of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Chargers

Analysis: Humphries played 60 percent of snaps on offense, working as the No. 3 receiver behind Terry McLaurin (100 percent) and Dyami Brown (93 percent). The three combined for only 10 targets, with Washington attempting 21 passes in a game where QB Ryan Fitzpatrick left early due to a hip injury. Humphries figures to handle the same slot role in three-wide sets Thursday night against the Giants, this time with Taylor Heinicke as the starting quarterback for Washington. Once Curtis Samuel (groin) returns from IR -- no sooner than Week 4 -- playing time could be harder to come by for Humphries.

Sep 13, 2021 6:49 AM EST

Sees three targets from Fitzpatrick

Humphries finished without a catch on three targets in Friday's preseason game against Cincinnati.

Analysis: The good news is that Humphries saw all three of his targets from projected starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, after accounting for two of Fitz's eight passes in the preseason opener. The veteran slot receiver is now just 1-of-5 for six yards this preseason, but the usage suggests he's on track for the No. 3 receiver role, or at least in position to split it with another player -- possibly rookie third-round pick Dyami Brown. Humphries probably needs the job to himself to have a real shot at mainstream fantasy value, even in an offense that heavily relies on three-wide sets.

Spinning magic with Fitzpatrick

Humphries has been Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target through the first two days of training camp, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coming off an injury-plagued 2020 campaign in Tennessee, the 28-year-old slot receiver is battling for the No. 3 spot on Washington's depth chart. A busy start to camp is a step in the right direction, especially when Humphries is displaying chemistry with the likely starting quarterback. It's also a good sign that he's getting a lot of reps with the first-team offense, though that's at least partially related to No. 2 receiver Curtis Samuel (groin) being absent from practice.

Jul 29, 2021 12:16 PM EST

Heading to nation's capital

Washington and Humphries agreed to a contract Thursday.

Analysis: Humphries has experience catching passes for new starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who started 10 games for the Bucs back in 2017 and 2018. Those campaigns happen to coincide with Humphries' best statistically, as he combined for a 137-1,447-6 line on 188 targets in 32 games working with Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston. Humphries fell off a bit that past two years with the Titans -- mostly due to injury and their run-heavy scheme -- hauling in 60 of 82 targets for 602 yards and four scores in 19 appearances. He'll work primarily out of the slot in Washington, working in tandem with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.

Discussing deal with Washington?

Humphries (concussion) is visiting with Washington on Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Humphries doesn't have any track record with coach Ron Rivera or OC Scott Turner, but the veteran slot receiver did play with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in Tampa Bay for two seasons (2017-18). Those were the two best statistical seasons of Humphries' career, with a 76/816/5 receiving line in 2018 inspiring the Titans to give him a four-year, $36 million contract in spring 2019. Humphries caught 60 passes for 602 yards and four touchdowns in 19 games with Tennessee, missing four contests in 2019 and nine more in 2020. Lingering concussion symptoms were the major problem last season, but Humphries should still be a solid slot receiver if he stays healthy. He'll turn 28 in June and would be a clear favorite for Washington's No. 3 receiver job behind Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.

Mar 25, 2021 7:07 AM EST

Cut loose by Titans

The Titans released Humphries on Thursday, Turron Davenport of reports.

Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries played in 19 regular-season games for Tennessee, catching 60 of 82 targets for 602 yards and four touchdowns. He was a reliable slot receiver before a concussion wiped out the second half of his 2020 campaign, but he never had a chance to live up to the contract while playing in a run-heavy offense that ranked near the bottom of the league in usage of three-wide formations. Humphries will turn 28 in June, so he still has time to revive his career with a new team.

Feb 25, 2021 1:28 PM EST

Potential cap casualty

Humphries (concussion) could be released this offseason, according to Gentry Estes of The Tennessean.

Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries has averaged only 3.2 catches for 31.7 receiving yards in 19 regular-season games with the Titans. He made just one appearance after Week 8 in 2020, struggling with concussion symptoms throughout much of the season. The Titans will free up approximately $4.75 million in cap space if they trade or release the 27-year-old slot receiver this winter/spring.

IR move due to concussion

Humphries' placement on injured reserve Tuesday is related to the concussion he suffered earlier this season, John Glennon of reports.

Analysis: Humphries was sidelined for four games with the head injury before he was cleared to return to the lineup for Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Browns. While he wasn't known to have exited early in the contest due to an injury, he apparently was diagnosed with a recurrence of the concussion symptoms upon being evaluated after the contest. Humphries will now be sidelined for at least three games as a result of the setback, making him ineligible to suit up again for the Titans until Week 17 versus the Texans.

Dec 8, 2020 12:44 PM EST

Headed to IR

The Titans plan to place Humphries on injured reserve Tuesday due to an unspecified injury, John Glennon of reports.

Analysis: After missing four straight games due to a concussion, Humphries returned to the lineup for last week's loss to the Browns, playing 36 percent of the offensive snaps in the contest and finishing with one reception for nine yards on four targets. The Titans didn't indicate that Humphries suffered a recurrence of concussion symptoms in the contest or a new injury, but additional details on his situation should emerge in the coming days. He'll have to miss at least the next three games while on IR, making him ineligible to play again until Week 17 against the Texans.
