Parker did not catch any of his three targets during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He ends the season with 24 receptions for 309 yards and one touchdown. Parker's fourth season in the NFL has been his statistical worst in terms of receptions and yards, and his one touchdown grab ties a career-low. Formerly a focal point of the Dolphins' offense, the former 2015 14th overall pick fell out of favor in Miami's offense and was phased out of gameplans midway through the season. All signs point towards the Dolphins parting ways with Parker this offseason, despite having previously picked up his fifth-year option. It's possible that a change in scenery will do well for the 25-year-old, but it seems very unlikely that Parker will live up to his draft capital any time soon.
Parker caught two of three targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars. The former 2015 first-round pick tied Danny Amendola for the most targets among Miami's wideouts during the Week 16 loss, which shows how much quarterback Ryan Tannehill struggled to make noise in the passing game. Parker has only exceeded 50 receiving yards in one game this season and has been phased out of his former role as a focal point in the Dolphins' offense. He'll remain off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 17 visit to the Bills.
Parker failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Vikings. Parker received less offensive snaps (19) than Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Brice Butler during the Week 15 loss. It's unclear whether the 2015 first-round pick was limited by an injury or simply has fallen to the No. 4 position in Miami's receiver room, but Parker won't be worth fantasy consideration Week 16 against the potent Jaguars defense.
Parker (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Parker has been restricted to non-contact work in practice the past few weeks but it hasn't affected his availability for gamedays. Since the Dolphins' Week 11 bye, Parker has suited up in all three of the team's games, catching eight of 15 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown. He should be fine to handle his usual role as a top-three receiver in the Miami offense in Week 15 against the Vikings, but there's reason to worry about both volume and efficiency.
Parker caught one of his four targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Patriots. Parker led Dolphins wideouts in offensive snaps (42) during Sunday's win over the Patriots, but was predictably unable to turn his usage into production. The 2015 first-round pick has burned fantasy believers all season, save for a Week 8 performance in which he caught six passes for 134 yards. He'll be difficult to trust in Miami's low-octane passing game heading into a difficult Week 15 matchup against the Vikings defense.
