Humphries had his best season to date, finishing 24th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He had career highs across the boards in receptions (76), yards (816) and touchdowns (five). He was a consistent factor all season long as the No. 3 receiver for the Bucs, a role he serves well. He had at least three receptions all but two games. He did not have a 100-yard game for the season but did top 50 yards nine times, including eight of his last 10 games. He finished the season strong. He has 55 or more receptions three straight seasons. He heads to the Titans this year to take over as their No. 3 or slot receiver. Humphries is a small receiver with pretty good speed and moves in space. He lacks some bulk, though, and is more of a possession receiver than big-play threat. He serves his role well and knows his limitations. Fantasy Outlook: Humphries likely reached his ceiling last year. He could near those numbers, though, so he has some value as a low-end No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He can get around 70 receptions for 800 yards and a few scores. His lack of scores does hurt his value some.
After spending the first four years of his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, wide receiver Adam Humphries left to join the Tennessee Titans this offseason. But does a new team necessarily mean an increased role for the fifth-year receiver? Last season, Humphries had career highs in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns, putting up totals of 76 catches, 816 yards, and five trips to the end zone. Humphries worked out of the slot on the vast majority of his snaps, which helped him finish 16th among wide receivers in receptions. He put up good numbers in terms of yardage after the catch as well. But Tampa Bays quarterbacks combined to throw for over 5000 yards last year, while the Titans didnt even throw for 3000. Thats a huge disparity, and it could be a big reason why Humphries doesnt deliver in his new surroundings. Factor in that the Titans have recently spent early draft picks on wide receivers Corey Davis and A.J. Brown, and you get a fairly crowded receiving corps on a team that just doesnt throw the ball enough to keep all their options producing. Humphries ability to rack up catches out of the slot gives him a decent floor, but his overall ceiling doesnt feel nearly as high as it did in Tampa Bay, making Humphries a risky fantasy pick in the later rounds.

Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries ranked second among the team's wide receivers behind Corey Davis with 43 offensive snaps played in Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: It was Humphries' highest snap count since Week 3. A rather large disappointment since signing a four-year, $36 million contract as a free agent this offseason, Humphries has just 21 receptions for 189 yards and no touchdowns on the season. He'll now have to recreate chemistry with newly-named starter QB Ryan Tannehill. He'll remain off of the fantasy radar until able to prove his worth.
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries posted six grabs for 47 yards on his six targets in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Spin: Humphries had twice as many receptions as any other receiver, and he seemed to jell nicely with Ryan Tannehill, who replaced Marcus Mariota. It's a situation worth watching closely. Humphries was a PPR stud in Tampa, earning a big payday in the offseason, but he has been off to a slow start with his new team.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries was the lone bright spot for the team on offense in the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. Humphries hauled in all six of his targets for 47 yards in this one. The Titans had issues on offense, so it's surprising they were even able to hit Humphries six times. He'll have some value in deeper leagues, but that's all for right now. Humphries doesn't get enough chances to be used in most formats.
Tennessee Titans running back Adam Humphries finished with 30 yards on four receptions on Sunday. Outside of Derrick Henry, who finished with the team's only touchdown in Week 5, the offense wasn't able to get anything going as Marcus Mariota faced an onslaught of pressure from a tough Bills Defense. After hauling in six catches for 93 yards against the Jags in Week 3, the former Buccaneer hasn't done much of anything and should only have a home on fantasy teams for managers looking for a week-to-week streaming option in deeper leagues.
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries caught four passes for 30 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. He was targeted six times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Humphries posted 93 yards in the team's Week 3 game but has combined for 49 yards in the other four games. He has not been a big part of the passing game and can be avoided until he is a consistent receiver for the Titans.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries caught two of just three targets for 15 yards in the team's 24-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. While teammates A.J. Brown and Corey Davis both had big days through the air, Humphries was relatively quiet for the day. Humphries will continue to be the third or fourth option in the passing game in a low volume offense, rendering him fairly useless for fantasy purposes.
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries caught two passes for 15 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. He was targeted three times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Humphries has been held to 15 yards or less in three of the four games this season and has only been targeted 15 times in the four games. He should have a decent role in the passing game because of his role as the slot receiver but can be avoided in fantasy leagues until he is more consistent.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries has not gotten off to the start many expected from him, but there are reasons to believe that may change. Despite a horrible overall offensive performance from the Titans in Week 3, Humphries snagged six receptions for 93 yards. Due to the perception of the Titans offense, this performance has gone largely under the radar. Expect Humphries to serve as the security blanket for quarterback Marcus Mariota going forward, giving him sneaky PPR value in games where they project to trail.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries caught six of his nine targets during the loss to Jacksonville on Thursday, finishing with a game-high 93 yards. After an uneventful two weeks before this one, the fifth-year man finally came to life against a tough Jaguars Defense that bombarded quarterback Marcus Mariota by recording nine sacks on the night. Though the 26-year-old hasn't done enough to earn his way on to fantasy rosters in most formats, fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on his progress in the weeks ahead.
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries caught six passes for a team-high 93 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, Sept.19.
Fantasy Spin: This was definitely a step in the right direction for Humphries, who managed just three catches and four yards during his first two games in Tennessee. It's not enough to warrant scooping up Humphries, but those in deeper leagues can at least add his name to the watch list.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries said his chemistry with quarterback Marcus Mariota is a work in progress. Humphries is working on being a better option for Mariota, especially on third down. The first-year Titan has just three catches for four yards after two weeks and is sixth on the team in targets with four, tied with Tajae Sharpe. There's obviously room to improve from here on out, but Humphries shouldn't be owned anywhere except the deepest of leagues. Tennessee just doesn't throw the ball nearly enough to support more than one or two pass-catchers in fantasy.
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries said Tuesday, Sept. 17, he's still working on chemistry with QB Marcus Mariota after signing a four-year, $36 million free-agent deal this offseason.
Fantasy Spin: Humphries totaled 816 receiving yards with five touchdowns on 76 receptions in his breakout fourth season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year, but he has just three catches for four yards through the first two games of the current season. He can be dropped in all redraft leagues but should be stashed for a couple more weeks in keeper and dynasty formats.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries has not gotten off to the start many expected with his new team in 2019. Humphries caught both of his targets for negative one yards in the team's 19-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2. After the game, quarterback Marcus Mariota mentioned Humphries as someone they needed to get more involved in the offense going forward. Despite these comments, Humphries should be left on waivers in all formats after this week.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries did not participate in team drills in the combined practice with the New England Patriots on Thursday after he had left practice with an undisclosed injury the day before. Humphries did take part in the individual drill portion on Thursday, suggesting that the team is just being precautious with their newly acquired slot receiver. Humphries' usage in preseason Week 1 was encouraging for his 2019 outlook, and he very well could push for WR3 value in PPR formats.
Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 14. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Humphries will be reevaluated and hopefully will be able to practice Thursday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Humphries will miss any significant time because of the injury. He should serve as the slot receiver for the Titans and likely will receive a solid amount of targets. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
