Broncos Re-Sign Lil'Jordan Humphrey

The Denver Broncos re-signed wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey to an undisclosed one-year deal on Wednesday, according to a source. Humphrey had 13 receptions for 162 yards and a career-high three touchdowns in his first year in Denver in 2023 while playing in all 17 games. While he had a career-best season catching the football, he was also the team's best blocking wideout. The 25-year-old could have a bigger role in 2024, too, following the team's trade of Jerry Jeudy to the Cleveland Browns last weekend. However, with the Broncos most likely starting either Jarrett Stidham or a rookie at quarterback, it will be hard to trust any receiver in Denver next year not named Courtland Sutton. Humphrey also has only 31 career receptions for 477 yards and six touchdowns in his five NFL seasons.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Scores In Win

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey was able to make a big splash for this struggling offense during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The veteran wideout turned an eight-yard route into a 54-yard touchdown. After that, Humphrey was pretty quiet as he finished with two receptions on four targets for 69 yards in the win. The Broncos are expected to continue starting Jarrett Stidham for the regular season finale. That means, none of the Broncos wideouts are going to have much appeal versus the Las Vegas Raiders next weekend.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Could Log Increased Snaps Against LA

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey could be looking at a significant role in Week 17 versus the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers with Courtland Sutton (concussion) out and Jerry Jeudy (illness) and rookie Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) both questionable to play. Humphrey played 58 percent of the offensive snaps for the second straight week in last Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots after Sutton went down with a concussion, but it didn't lead to any targets through the air. The 25-year-old should see the field plenty this Sunday with Sutton out, but one of or both Jeudy/Mims will probably be active, which means Humphrey is likely to be a long shot to produce meaningful fantasy numbers, especially with quarterback Jarrett Stidham now leading the Broncos offense. Humphrey has only 11 receptions for 93 yards and two touchdowns in 2023.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Scores Second Touchdown In Week 15

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey found the end zone for the second time this year on a great contested catch in the back of the end zone on Saturday night in the team's 42-17 blowout loss to the Detroit Lions. Humphrey is starting to see more playing time over rookie Marvin Mims Jr. on offense and it translated to his best game of the year with three catches on four targets for 16 yards and his second touchdown in 2023. The 25-year-old's first TD came back in Week 1. Humphrey's trip to paydirt came in garbage time with the Broncos down multiple scores in the second half, so fantasy managers shouldn't bank on him becoming fantasy relevant down the stretch of the regular season in an offense that prefers to rely on their ground game in positive game script.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Returns To Denver

The Denver Broncos have signed wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey to the practice squad on Saturday. They've also elevated Humphrey to the active roster ahead of Sunday's Week 7 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. The 25-year-old was let go by the team on Friday, but returns a day later. The Broncos offense is in need of some help with tight end Greg Dulcich (hamstring) landing on the injured reserve. Humphrey has recorded four receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown in six games this season. Fantasy managers shouldn't view him as a reliable streaming option.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Released By The Broncos On Friday

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey was released by the team again on Friday. The 25-year-old wideout was actually cut by the Broncos last week before subsequently resigning to the Denver practice squad and then being added to the active roster before Week 6. This time, however, the Broncos claimed defensive tackle Keondre Coburn, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, off waivers and needed to make room for him, so Humphrey was released yet again. If history is any indication, the fifth-year wide receiver could find himself back on the Denver practice squad before next weekend.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Released By The Broncos

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey has been released by the team. The fifth-year receiver, who has played sparingly through the first five weeks of the season, will finish his tenure with the Broncos with four catches for 25 yards and a score. Humphrey was cut at the end of camp in August before being resigned to the practice squad and eventually being promoted to the active roster in Week 1. Not that the 25-year-old commanded much offensive attention in the first place, but his departure should open up more looks in the passing game for Marvin Mims Jr., who despite playing far fewer snaps than Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton, is leading the Broncos with 246 receiving yards.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Promoted To Active Roster

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey is being promoted to the 53-man active roster. In a corresponding move, the team placed safety Caden Sterns (knee) on Injured Reserve. Humphrey caught both of his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The 25-year-old spent three seasons with the New Orleans Saints during Sean Payton's tenure, and he could see more playing time while Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) is out. Still, he's not on the fantasy radar until further notice.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey Scores Touchdown In Week 1

Denver Broncos wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey connected with quarterback Russell Wilson on one of his two touchdown passes on Sunday in the team's 17-16 season-opening loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1. All in all, Humphrey caught both of his targets for only 11 yards and the touchdown, so even fantasy managers in cavernous leagues shouldn't be running out to the waiver wire next week to add him. His touchdown reception came five yards out from the end zone. The 25-year-old was elevated from the practice squad for the first week of the season with the Broncos holding Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) out due to injury on Sunday. If Jeudy is able to return in Week 2 to make his season debut against the Washington Commanders, Humphrey is likely to have an even smaller role on offense.
