Let go Tuesday

Humphrey was cut from the Patriots' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Humphrey played in each of New England's first six games this season, recording two catches on four targets for 20 yards. The 24-year-old was previously let go by the Patriots this season and subsequently brought back, which could happen again. If not, Humphrey will work to earn an opportunity elsewhere.

Bumped down to practice squad

Humphrey reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: Humphrey was waived by New England on Tuesday before re-signing with the team's practice squad Thursday. The 24-year was then activated to the active roster with wide receiver Nelson Agholor (hamstring) sidelined for Week 6. Humphrey ultimately did not record a statistic while playing just one special-teams snap during this 38-15 win over the Browns, and he'll now be eligible for two more elevations from the Patriots' practice squad this season.

Moved up from practice squad

The Patriots elevated Humphrey from the practice squad Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Nelson Agholor (hamstring) getting downgraded to out for Sunday's game in Cleveland, Humphrey will move up from the practice squad to bolster the Patriots' depth at receiver. While playing in all five of the Patriots' games to date, Humphrey has produced only two receptions for 20 yards across 125 snaps on offense.

Staying with Pats

The Patriots re-signed Humphrey to the practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Humphrey opened the regular season on New England's practice squad and was elevated for the season opener before signing to the active roster shortly thereafter. However, the fourth-year wideout saw his playing time fall over each of the past three weeks and was waived Tuesday. Humphrey should now be a likely candidate for subsequent game-day activations moving forward.

Humphrey was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday,

Analysis: Humphrey had played in all five games for the Patriots this season, recording two catches for 20 yards on four targets. He'll now work to find an opportunity elsewhere.

On the field for 54 snaps Sunday

Humphrey logged 54 of a possible 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 37-26 loss to the Ravens, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Despite being second among the Patriots wideouts in terms of snaps in Week 3, Humphrey didn't record a catch (on one target) in the contest. For now, the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is off the fantasy radar, though his versatility (Humphrey saw TE reps in training camp) and blocking ability could keep earn him a share of playing time in the weeks ahead.

Catches one pass Sunday

Humphrey was on the field for 26 of a possible 68 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Steelers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: In the process, Humphrey caught one of his two targets for 11 yards in Week 2. For now, the 24-year-old is off the fantasy radar while working as a depth option in a New England wideout corps that also includes Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne.

Joins 53-man roster

Humphrey was signed to the Patriots' active roster Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Humphrey was elevated to the Patriots' active roster prior to last Sunday's season opener against the Dolphins, as fellow receiver Jakobi Meyers (knee) was listed as questionable for the contest. Meyers ended up playing, and the 225-pounder subsequently reverted back to the team's practice squad Monday. However, with RB Ty Montgomery (knee) being placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Humphrey was signed to New England's active roster once again. The 24-year-old provides the team with added WR depth ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Steelers, and he could serve as a contributor on special teams.

Reverts to practice squad

Humphrey reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Humphry saw the field for three snaps on offense and one on special teams, but he failed to record any stats. The 24-year-old, will work to earn another shot on the active roster during practice this week.

Sep 12, 2022 3:58 PM EST


Elevated from practice squad

The Patriots have elevated Humphrey from their practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Evan Lazar of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: With Jakobi Meyers (knee) listed as questionable for the contest, Humphrey provides the Patriots with some added Week 1 wideout depth, plus he's also an option to contribute on special teams if he's active Sunday.

Sep 10, 2022 2:32 PM EST


Lands on Patriots practice squad

Humphrey has been added to the Patriots' practice squad.

Analysis: As was Tre Nixon, which gives the Patriots' some in-house promotion options should injuries hit the team's wideout corps, which is currently led by DeVante Parker, Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor.

Aug 31, 2022 3:27 PM EST


Let go by Patriots

The Patriots are slated to waive Humphrey, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.

Analysis: The same applies to fellow depth wideout Tre Nixon, with the report noting that both players are candidates to resurface on the Patriots' practice squad.

Aug 30, 2022 12:57 PM EST


Sees some TE reps

Humphrey relayed Monday that he's seen some reps at tight end in training camp, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Analysis: If the 6-foot-4, 225 pounder-- who is listed as a wide receiver -- demonstrates that he has the versatility to play some tight end, it could potentially help him land a roster spot. Though two preseason games, Humphrey has logged 11 catches for 133 yards and TD, while also making a mark on special teams.

Joins New England via one-year deal

The Patriots signed Humphrey to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: There were reports that the wideout would be returning to the Saints, but the undrafted product out of Texas opted to sign with New England instead. In the absence of Michael Thomas (ankle), the 24-year-old complied a career-high 249 receiving yards across 10 games last season, but he faces a crowded wide receiver room with his new squad.

Jun 15, 2022 1:03 PM EST


Re-ups with Saints

New Orleans re-signed Humphrey, a restricted free agent, to a contract Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Humphrey recently dealt with an ankle injury, per Underhill, but he's fully on track for the start of the offseason program. After compiling a career-high 249 receiving yards through 10 games last season, Humphrey figures to once again compete for a depth role with the Saints.

Contributes down the stretch

Humphrey caught 13 of 18 targets for 249 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games during the 2021 season.

Analysis: Humphrey missed seven games between injuries, coach's decisions and COVID protocols, but he was a regular part of the rotation over the second half of the season despite Tre'Quan Smith's return to the lineup. However, the 6-foot-4 only saw more than two targets twice and only once was he targeted in the red zone. While Humphrey's status as an exclusive-rights free agent almost guarantees that he'll be back in New Orleans in 2022, each of Michael Thomas, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris will probably be back as well, and it's possible other talents are added to the mix.

Jan 16, 2022 2:11 PM EST


Two catches in win

Humphrey caught both his targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: The Saints' passing tree was very narrow in this one, as only Marquez Callaway and Alvin Kamara saw more targets or had more production than Humphrey. It was a disappointing performance for the 23-year-old after he set a career high with 70 yards last week, but he'll get one more chance in the regular season to make a splash as New Orleans faces Atlanta in Week 18 with a possible wild-card berth on the line.

Jan 2, 2022 8:34 PM EST


Good to go Week 17

Humphrey (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, John DeShazier of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Humphrey dealt with a non-COVID illness late in the week, but he'll be out there against Carolina for the late-season divisional clash. The 23-year-old is coming off a career-best three-catch, 70-yard performance against the Dolphins in Week 16, numbers he generated with rookie Ian Book at quarterback.

Jan 2, 2022 12:22 PM EST


Iffy for Week 17

The Saints list Humphrey as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers with an illness.

Analysis: Humphrey was a late addition to the Saints' Week 17 injury report after he failed to practice Friday upon coming down with the ailment. The wideout hasn't been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and should have a shot at being available Sunday, provided he makes good progress in his recovery over the next 48 hours. With three catches for 70 yards on five targets in the Week 16 loss to Miami, Humphrey was one of the few Saints skill-position players to deliver a useful fantasy line in the game, though his involvement in the passing game could take a step back with Deonte Harris (suspension) back in action this weekend following a three-game hiatus.

Secures long bomb in garbage time

Humphrey caught three of five targets for 70 yards during Monday's 20-3 loss to Miami.

Analysis: The majority of Humphrey's production came on a 56-yard bomb in the closing minutes of garbage time. Otherwise, he didn't do much, just like every other Saints' pass catcher that had to make due with fourth-string rookie quarterback Ian Book. None of them, Humphrey included, will be advisable fantasy options if Book remains under center in Week 17 against Carolina.
