Ryan Fitzpatrick will be back under center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday, and that's great news for those of us that love to watch his truly insane brand of Fitzmagic play out once again on a football field.


However, it's not great news for wide receiver Adam Humphries' fantasy owners.

Humphries only gets around 10 percent of the Bucs' total targets when Fitzpatrick is under center, but that number ballooned to nearly 20 percent when Jameis Winston was the team's quarterback. So Humphries was Winston's second-favorite option after Mike Evans, while he's the fifth for Fitzpatrick. 


Here are the splits between the two quarterbacks, stats wise:

Humphries with Fitzpatrick: 14 targets, 9 receptions, 82 yards

Humphries with Winston: 28 targets, 18 receptions, 214 yards


Humphries has roughly three games with Winston as the quarterback and four with Fitzpatrick as the quarterback yet his numbers are doubled with Winston under center. The former No. 1 pick really did focus on getting the ball to Humphries it seems.


This is obvious bad news for Humphries, who was having a serviceable season with 27 receptions for 296 yards. He hasn't found the end zone yet, which is what has kept him from becoming a truly viable FLEX option for most fantasy teams. With the return of Fitzpatrick, Humphries should be relegated back to the waiver wire, but who knows maybe Fitz will attempt to spread the wealth out a little more this time around.
