Humphries co-led the team in receptions on the afternoon, but he was unable to replicate some of the downfield success he'd enjoyed in recent games. The fourth-year receiver continues to enjoy a steady role in the passing game, however, as he now has six or more targets in six of his last eight games. Humphries will look to boost his numbers back up against the Ravens in Week 15.
Humphries caught seven of nine targets for 61 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Panthers.
Humphries led the team in targets and catches as he went over 50 receiving yards for the sixth straight game. He also scored a three-yard touchdown to open the scoring, giving him scores in three straight games to take his total to five on the season. Humphries enjoyed a larger target share with DeSean Jackson out, though he's been quite consistent of late whether or not his teammate has been in the lineup. He'll look to continue his recent success next Sunday in what could be a high-scoring game against the Saints.
Both Humphries and Chris Godwin are expected to earn increased snaps and targets with fellow wideout DeSean Jackson (thumb) sidelined for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
With averages of 4.7 receptions and 63.4 yards in addition to four touchdowns over the past seven contests, Humphries has already carved out a meaningful role in the Tampa Bay passing attack. For at least this week, Jackson's absence should only further bolster Humphries' ascending fantasy value, as it creates room for both Humphries and Godwin to join Mike Evans in the three-receiver sets coordinator Todd Monken's offense typically favors. Godwin will presumably be asked to run most of the deep routes that have typically been Jackson's domain, leaving Humphries to perhaps draw more short and intermediate looks out of the slot.
Humphries drew even with Mike Evans for the team lead in receptions while finding the end zone for the second straight game on a nifty play by Jameis Winston where he scrambled around to buy time. Humphries has now topped 50 yards receiving in five straight games, and he's also scored all four of his touchdowns for the season during that stretch. He'll look to continue producing against the Panthers in Week 13 divisional showdown.
Humphries continued to make some noise downfield, notching a 39-yard reception on his way to his second YPC of at least 20.0 yards and third overall of the season. The fourth-year receiver had mostly been typecast as a possession option coming into the 2018 campaign, but he's now averaging a career-high 12.3 yards per grab. Humphries has therefore expanded his utility beyond strictly PPR formats, and he now has all three of his touchdowns on the season over the last three games. He'll look to continue surging versus the 49ers in Week 12.
