Parker (hamstring) caught seven of 14 targets for 116 yards in Sunday's 56-26 loss to Buffalo. Parker was inundated with targets as the Dolphins desperately tried to erase a large second-half deficit, only to watch it keep ballooning, even with backup quarterback Matt Barkley under center for the Bills. After setting career highs across the board with 72 catches for 1,202 yards and nine targets last season, Parker took a step back with just 63 catches for 793 yards and four touchdowns this year. He remains the top option in Miami's passing game heading into next season, but Parker's hopes of playing in the postseason were likely dashed with this loss.
Parker (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills. After his hamstring injury sidelined him for the past two games, Parker received the green light for the regular-season finale. However, since Parker was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday, he'll likely be playing at less than 100 percent in the Week 17 matchup. Expect Parker to at least serve as one of the Dolphins' starting receivers, though his snap count could be monitored more than usual if his hamstring is inhibiting him during the contest.
Parker (hamstring) remained limited at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Along with Parker, Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is also questionable, with the two wideouts' Week 17 statuses set to be confirmed when the Dolphins release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. While Grant suited up in Week 16, Parker has missed two straight games and should be viewed as a game-time decision for an important contest as the Dolphins look to secure a playoff spot. For what it's worth, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post relays that Parker "looked to be running well" during the open portion of Friday's practice.
Parker (hamstring) logged a limited practice Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Parker has missed Miami's last two games with his hamstring injury, but his ability to practice Wednesday -- albeit in a limited capacity -- offers hope that he could return to action Sunday against the Bills. That said, Parker was also listed as a limited practice participant the last two weeks before ultimately being inactive once game day arrived. As such, he'll likely need to upgrade to full participation by Friday for his fantasy managers to feel good about his chances of suiting up Week 17.
Parker (hamstring) was spotted taking part in practice Wednesday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Parker has sat out consecutive games due to a lingering hamstring injury, with his absence likely contributing to Tua Tagovailoa's limited effectiveness through the air during last weekend's win over the Raiders. With a playoff berth at stake Week 17 in Buffalo, the 27-year-old will work to do everything in his power to get ready for Sunday.
