WR Adam Humphries

The oft-forgotten man in the Bucs receiving corps, Humphries continues to produce. Quietly, he has numbers that mimic Chris Godwin. Still, Humphries hasn’t garnered much attention this season.

As the Bucs fourth receiver, Humphries has 35 receptions, 378 yards and a pair of touchdowns, both coming in last week’s contest against the Panthers.

For his role, those are terrific numbers. The Bucs have extraordinary depth at wideout and Humphries’ ability to make an impact has put this offense on the next level.

Despite being buried early in the year, he has turned it on as DeSean Jackson takes a backseat. Humphries is set for free agency after this season and could be an under the radar target for receiver-needy teams.
