  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Contributes down the stretch

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

    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.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Two catches in win

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

    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.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: 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.

    Humphrey dealt with a non-COVID-19 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.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Iffy for Week 17

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

    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.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Secures long pass in garbage time

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

    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 New Orleans pass catcher that had to make due with rookie quarterback Ian Book, who struggled mightily in his first NFL start. None of them, Humphrey included, will be advisable fantasy options if Book remains under center in Week 17 against Carolina.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Back in action Sunday

    Humphrey (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday at Tampa Bay, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    After sitting out one game due to a hamstring issue, Humphrey managed a pair of limited practices to close out Week 15 prep, setting himself up for a potential return to action. Now that it's official, he'll work with quarterback Taysom Hill for the second time this season. Back in a Week 13 loss to the Cowboys, Humphrey hauled in both of his targets for 49 yards and one touchdown.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Questionable to suit up

    Humphrey (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Rod Walker of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Humphrey missed last week's win over the Jets after a Thursday addition to the injury report, but he could make it back this Sunday after logging limited practices Thursday and Friday. Even if that happens, he'll only be the No. 3 receiver in an unimpressive passing offense, and with some risk of a game-time decision ahead of the 8:20 ET kickoff Sunday night. If Humphrey is out, Kenny Stills likely will fill in as the No. 3 receiver again.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Not ready for practice

    Humphrey (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

    With Humphrey trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and Deonte Harris suspended for two more games, Kenny Stills may get another shot as the Saints' No. 3 receiver. The role didn't amount to much production in Sunday's win over the Jets, with Stills unable to draw a target on 27 snaps (39 percent).

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Practices in limited fashion

    Humphrey (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    The limited session marks a step forward for Humphrey, who didn't participate in practice last Friday due to the hamstring injury before sitting out Sunday's win over the Jets. He remained idle for the Saints' first Week 15 practice Wednesday, but Humphrey's return to the field Thursday should give him a chance at being available this weekend in Tampa Bay. If he's cleared to suit up, Humphrey could serve as the Saints' No. 3 receiver, a role that Kenny Stills filled last week to little success (no targets on 27 snaps).

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Takes seat Sunday

    Humphrey (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday at the Jets, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Humphrey logged progressively fewer practice reps as Week 14 prep ensued, showing up on Thursday's injury report as limited before sitting out Friday's session entirely due to a hamstring issue. The Saints' receiving corps is down Michael Thomas (ankle), Deonte Harris (suspension), Ty Montgomery (COVID-19) and Humphrey on Sunday, leaving Tre'Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway, Kenny Stills, Kevin White and Easop Winston as wideouts available to quarterback Taysom Hill.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Status in question for Sunday

    Humphrey (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's road game against the Jets, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Humphrey made a sudden appearance on the Saints' practice report Thursday as limited with a hamstring injury, which didn't allow him to practice at all Friday. Still, the team is leaving open the possibility for Humphrey to play Sunday, likely due to Deonte Harris serving a three-game suspension and Ty Montgomery residing on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Assuming he gets cleared when New Orleans releases its inactive list about 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, Humphrey will join Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway, at least, as wide receivers available to the offense.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Tending to hamstring injury

    Humphrey was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury.

    Humphrey has been a fringe member of the Saints' receiving corps this season and a healthy inactive on multiple occasions, but his status suddenly bears monitoring due to the depleted state of the position group heading into Sunday's game against the Jets. With Deonte Harris set to begin serving a three-game suspension this week, Ty Montgomery (illness) landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and now Humphrey tending to an injury, the Saints are currently without any healthy depth behind starters Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway. So long as Humphrey can return to practice in some fashion Friday, he should remain the leading candidate to join Smith and Callaway in three-receiver sets Week 14, but the 23-year-old is still best viewed as little more than a dart throw in DFS lineups. Over his three-year career, Humphrey has totaled 10 receptions for 173 yards and three touchdowns across 14 games.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Gets into end zone Thursday

    Humphrey secured both targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 27-17 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night.

    Humphrey checked in a distant second to Deonte Harris in receiving yards, but he was able to get into the end zone via a 24-yard scoring grab early in the second quarter. The 23-year-old now has a pair of touchdown catches in the last three games, while his yardage totals over the last pair of contests -- he also posted 47 yards against the Bills on Thanksgiving night -- are the two highest of his career. Humphrey's next opportunity to keep building on his numbers comes in a Week 14 road matchup against the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Not facing Tennessee

    Humphrey is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    The Saints activated Humphrey off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, but he's a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Titans. His next chance to play will come Nov. 21 at Philadelphia. Humphrey has one reception for 27 yards in three games this season.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Activated off COVID-19 list

    The Saints activated Humphrey off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Humphrey was placed onto the Saints reserve/COVID-19 list before Week 8. The receiver tested positive for the virus and was forced to miss Week 8 and 9 for New Orleans. Expect Humphrey's return to the field to have a minimal impact on the Saints' offense.
