Humphries played all 17 games for Washington in 2021, catching 41 of 62 targets for 383 yards and no touchdowns. Humphries stayed healthy after two injury-plagued seasons (2019-20) in Tennessee, but he finished with career lows for yards per catch (9.3), yards per target (6.2) and touchdowns (zero). The 28-year slot specialist is scheduled for free agency again this offseason, and while he figures to attract some level of interest, he could face tougher competition for a slot/No. 3 role, depending on where he signs and for how much.
Humphries hauled in three of six targets for 23 yards in Tuesday's 27-17 loss to the Eagles. Though Washington was breaking in third-stringer Garrett Gilbert as its starting quarterback Tuesday, Humphries remained involved in the passing game. He's now had multiple catches in each of the last five games, securing 15 of 22 targets for 139 yards during that stretch.
Humphries and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster.
Humphries caught four passes for 34 yards on seven targets against Dallas on Sunday. It's not the most exciting box score, but Humphries' seven targets were his second highest of the season, behind only the eight he saw against the Giants in Week 2. It's possible that Humphries' target rate remains elevated if Terry McLaurin (concussion) can't play against Philadelphia in Week 15.
Humphries caught four of five targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders. The veteran slot man wound up leading all Washington wideouts in catches and receiving yards on a sluggish day for the team's passing game. Humphries hasn't reached 40 receiving yards since Week 5 and is still looking for his first TD of the season, giving him limited appeal heading into a Week 14 clash with the Cowboys.
