Huff was held without a catch in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants. Despite playing much better football in his second year than he did in his rookie season, Huff's production was still very inconsistent. He caught just one pass for eight yards in the final two games of the year, and racked up 20 yards or fewer in nine games this season. Whether he can be the speedy play-maker former head coach Chip Kelly envisioned remains to be seen; so far, it doesn't look promising.
Huff was targeted twice, recording one catch for eight yards in Saturday's loss to Washington/ Huff was coming off of a game against Arizona during which he tied a season high with four catches. The swift slot man hasn't made much a splash since Week 5's 78-yard performance, topping 50 yards receiving just once since. Projecting Huff's Week 17 is a mixed back of uncertainty. On one hand, he will square off against one of the league's worst defenses. On the other, his former college coach and advocate, Chip Kelly, has now become his former pro coach.
Huff caught four passes for 52 yards in Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Cardinals. Huff has six catches in his past two games, and has two touchdowns in the last five. Those numbers, while pedestrian for most wideouts, are revelations for the second-year receiver. Still, he remains tremendously inconsistent. His increased involvement in the Eagles' offense is more a good sign for the actual football team than anyone's fantasy squad in these final two weeks. He's a boom-or-bust option in very, very deep leagues.
Huff recorded two catches off of three targets for 28 yards in Sunday's win over Buffalo. Sunday was Huff's first multi-catch game in four weeks. The young speedster is a constant threat to take the ball to the house, but has been targeted more than four times just twice all season and hasn't topped 40 yards receiving since Week 5. The off chance of a touchdown strike does not warrant the more-likely risk of a mediocre performance.
Huff (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Huff has scored a TD in two of his last three games, but his modest target volume makes him a hit-or-miss fantasy play this weekend.
