  • 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.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Added to COVID-19 list

    The Saints placed Humphrey on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The 23-year-old tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday and will have to submit two negative tests at least 24 hours apart before he's eligible to be activated. After being a healthy scratch for three games in a row, Humphrey dressed in Monday's win over the Seahawks, but he failed to record a reception across his 11 offensive snaps.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Healthy scratch again

    Humphrey (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at Washington.

    Humphrey caught one of two targets for 27 yards while playing 56 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 2, but he's now a healthy scratch for the third straight game. Kenny Stills and Chris Hogan should operate as depth wideouts Sunday for New Orleans.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Healthy scratch for Week 3

    Humphrey (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Patriots, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Humphrey appeared to be in line for a bigger role after he logged 55 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 2 compared to the 29 percent he played during Week 1. However, that isn't the case, as the 6-foot-4 wideout has been ruled a healthy scratch for Week 3. Kenny Stills, who was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, and Chris Hogan will be the key beneficiaries of Humphrey's absence.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Gets involved in passing game

    Humphrey caught one of two targets for 27 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.

    Humphrey wasn't in the starting lineup this time around, but he jumped from 29 percent of the offensive snaps Week 1 to 55 percent Sunday, despite the Saints needing a pass-heavy approach most of the game. While this jump in playing time resulted in a couple of targets for him after he didn't see any in the season opener, the 6-foot-4 receiver likely will continue to see his biggest offensive contributions come as a blocker.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: No targets in Week 1

    Humphrey logged 18 offensive snaps but was not targeted with a pass during Sunday's 38-3 win over Green Bay.

    The 6-foot-4 receiver drew the start opposite Marquez Callaway, but he ultimately logged just 29 percent of the offensive snaps compared to 84 for Callaway and 44 for Deonte Harris. Moreover, Humphrey largely focuses on blocking tasks when he does see the field, so it's hard to get excited about his fantasy potential even if he is a starter in the absence of Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring). Next up for the Saints is a Week 2 road game in Carolina.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Scores again

    Humphrey caught four passes for 74 yards and one touchdown during Monday's 23-21 preseason victory over Jacksonville.

    The 6-foot-4 Humphrey found the end zone for a second straight exhibition game, this time on a back-shoulder pass from Taysom Hill. While the Saints have a number of candidates to help fill the void at receiver while Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed) work their way back from injury, Humphrey is making a strong case to be near the top of the rotation. Other candidates for snaps behind Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris include Ty Montgomery, Chris Hogan and Kawaan Baker.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Candidate for early season snaps

    Humphrey is a candidate for early season snaps in the absence of Michael Thomas (ankle), Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    The Saints have a number of candidates to see expanded roles in Thomas' absence, starting with Tre'Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris and Kawaan Baker. However, at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, Humphrey certainly is a bigger asset as a blocker in the run game than many of them. However, even if Humphrey does find a way to work himself onto the field during the regular season, his upside as a fantasy contributor is low considering his 4.75-second 40 time from the 2019 NFL Combine was slowest among all wide receivers from that year's draft class.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Earns future deal

    Humphrey signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Humphrey played in the final three regular-season games, and he logged a 54 percent snap share in the wild-card win over the Bears. Over those four contests, Humphrey recorded four receptions (six targets) for 60 yards and a touchdown. While he's not expected to crack the starting lineup anytime soon, Humphrey could earn a depth role in the Big Easy next year.

  • Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Shifts to practice squad

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

    Humphrey finished third among Saints' wide receivers with 45 snaps on offense (54 percent) in Sunday's wild-card win over the Bears, although he was held to just one 14-yard reception on his lone target. The Saints put a lot of trust in Humphrey for a playoff game, so he stands a good chance to be elevated from the practice squad for the NFC divisional-round game against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Lifted from practice squad

    The Saints elevated Humphrey from the practice squad Saturday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Although Michael Thomas (ankle) is back from IR, Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) is still unavailable, so Humphrey will add depth at wide receiver in Sunday's wild-card game against the Bears. The 22-year-old will be one of seven healthy wideouts for the Saints. Through three games this season, Humphrey has caught three passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.

  • Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Shifts to practice roster

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

    Humphrey logged 23 snaps on offense and reeled in his lone target for a 17-yard gain. The 22-year-old wideout served as depth for the final three games of the year, and he could be summoned again in the playoffs if Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) are unavailable.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Moves back to active roster

    Humphrey was elevated to the Saints' active roster Saturday.

    Humphrey is on track to provide depth at wide receiver Sunday against the Panthers with the Saints missing a handful of starters, including Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (ankle). Humphrey has logged a total of 43 offensive snaps throughout the team's past two games, but he's only seen four targets during this span.
