WR Adam Humphries has stepped up his play late in games this year. He has nine catches for 125 yards in the fourth quarter, more than his production in the first three quarters combined (eight for 82). Humphries had a 38-yard catch to set up a touchdown as the Bucs rallied to beat the Giants and a 20yard catch in the final minute as they tried to catch the Patriots but fell short.
In all, he ranks eighth in the NFL in fourth-quarter catches and yards, leading the Bucs in both categories.
“He shows up every game,” QB Jameis Winston said Thursday. “If you watch a game, you’re going to see Adam Humphries having a long run, breaking a tackle, making a fantastic catch. That’s just what he is. He’s a baller.”
