Player Outlook
Parker was traded to New England this offseason, and he could emerge as the No. 1 receiver for Mac Jones this year. Parker is worth drafting as a low-end No. 3 receiver in all leagues with a pick in Round 9 or 10. The Patriots receiving corps features Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor and rookie Tyquan Thornton, and Parker should be a go-to guy for Jones right away. Hopefully, we see Parker return to his 2019 form when he averaged 15.4 PPR points per game. It would even be good if he averaged 11.9 PPR points per game like he did in 2020. Last year, he was at 10.3 PPR points per game, but he should do better than that with his new opportunity in New England.

  • Patriots' DeVante Parker: Displays red-zone skills at practice

    In Wednesday's training camp practice, Parker made a mark by scoring touchdowns on back-to-back plays during the Patriots' red-zone drills, Henry McKenna of USA Today reports. While we won't read too much into a couple of good plays during the early stages of training camp, it's encouraging that the 29-year-old wideout -- who arrived via a trade with Miami in April -- is healthy and off to a good start at practice this summer. At 6-foot-3, 218 pounds, Parker is a big-bodied receiver who could emerge as a useful red-zone target for second-year QB Mac Jones. While Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor all remain in the mix for targets and the Patriots added speedy wideout Tyquan Thornton in the second round of the 2022 Draft, Parker has a chance to earn steady snaps in his new locale and thus is a candidate to see increased fantasy production after logging a 40-515-2 stat line on 73 targets in 10 games with the Dolphins last season.

  • Patriots' DeVante Parker: Bolsters Patriots' WR corps

    The addition of Parker gives the Patriots "a physical boundary receiver with No. 1 potential," according to Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic. That's a notion echoed by ESPN's Mike Reiss, who suggests that Parker is projected to fill a role -- that of a big target who can win in contested-catch scenarios -- which 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry wasn't able to seize. Per Fairburn, if Parker can stay healthy, the 29-year-old has a chance to emerge as the Patriots' top wideout, but Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor all remain in the mix for targets, as do tight ends Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Despite the potential that New England's offense spreads the ball around among its pass catchers and continues to rely heavily on the run, Parker has the skill to bounce back in 2022 after posting a 40-515-2 stat line (on 73 targets) in 10 games with the Dolphins last season.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Dealt to New England

    The Dolphins have traded Parker and a 2022 fifth-round pick to the Patriots in exchange for a 2023 third-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With the emergence of Jaylen Waddle in 2021 and the recent addition of Tyreek Hill, Parker was the odd-man out in Miami. He recorded just 40 receptions for 515 yards and two touchdowns across 10 games for the Dolphins last year. The veteran pass catcher will now look for a fresh start in New England, where he will have the opportunity to earn a significant role in the offense.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Quiet in Week 18 win

    Parker secured two of four targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 33-24 win over the Patriots. Parker saw his involvement on offense decline during the regular-season finale, after having drawn 13 looks from Tua Tagovailoa in Week 17. The veteran wideout ends his 2021 campaign with unimpressive numbers across 10 appearances, with 40 catches for 515 yards and two touchdowns on 73 targets. Parker has two years left on his four-year, $30.5 million contract, but with Miami having moved on from coach Brian Flores, more shakeups could be coming.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Sees big target boost in loss

    Parker brought in four of 13 targets for 46 yards in the Dolphins' 34-3 loss to the Titans on Sunday. Parker easily paced the Dolphins in targets while co-leading the team in catches alongside Mike Gesicki. The veteran had gone without so much as a single target across 41 snaps back in Week 16 against the Saints, so despite the inefficiency Sunday, it was still a marked improvement from just six days prior. Parker faces a tough Patriots defense to close out the regular season in Week 18.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Not targeted in win

    Parker failed to draw a target while playing 63 percent of the Dolphins' snaps on offense in Monday's 20-3 win over the Saints. The Week 16 contest marked the first time in eight appearances this season that Parker hadn't been targeted. Meanwhile, rookie wideout Jaylen Waddle drew a team-high 12 targets, with the large disparity likely a result of Parker being shadowed by star cornerback Marshon Lattimore for a good portion of the game while Tua Tagovailoa took what was given to him underneath. Tagovailoa's rapport with Waddle from their time together at Alabama along with the quarterback's inclination for short-yardage, high-percentage throws has seemingly resulted in Parker dropping to second in the pecking order in the Miami receiver room.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Sets up two TDs then scores one

    Parker caught four of eight targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets. Working as Miami's top wide receiver with Jaylen Waddle on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Parker led the team in receiving yards and tied tight end Mike Gesicki for the lead in targets. He set up Miami's first touchdown by getting the ball down to the two-yard line with a 37-yard catch, then set up the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter by drawing a pass interference penalty in the end zone. After the Jets tied it up, Parker finally got into the end zone himself from 11 yards out to round out the scoring with 3:37 remaining. Regardless of Waddle's status in Week 16 against the Saints, Parker should continue to occupy a starting role on the outside.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Five catches in return

    Parker recorded five receptions on five targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants. Parker was able to suit up for the first time since Week 8 after being placed on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. He finished fourth on the team with five targets, most notably working behind Albert Wilson. However, Parker made the most of his opportunities, getting looks in the short areas of the field and also converting a couple deep targets into receptions. Most importantly, Parker appears to have finished the game without any setbacks and can now focus on producing in Week 15 against the Jets after the team's bye.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Off injured reserve

    Parker (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve Saturday. Parker has played in just one game since Week 4 thanks to a lingering shoulder issue. The veteran wide receiver had been quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's favorite target early in the season, but rookie Jaylen Waddle has assumed that mantle as of late. With a relatively easy schedule the rest of the way and Tagovailoa's emerging capabilities under center, it's possible Miami's offense could cater two fantasy-relevant wide receivers, although that does not factor in the potential return of Will Fuller (finger), who could be designated to return from injured reserve soon.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: May be activated for Week 13

    Parker (shoulder) practiced throughout the week and could be activated from injured reserve before Sunday's game against the Giants, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. The Dolphins need to make a move by Saturday at 4 p.m. ET to have Parker in the lineup for Sunday's game, which kicks off at 1 p.m. ET. The veteran wideout is averaging 5.0 catches for 65.4 yards on 8.6 targets per game this year, but he's played just one game since Week 4, and Jaylen Waddle's emergence could leave Parker with a smaller share of the Miami passing game going forward. On the other hand, Parker has done well in the two full games he and Tua Tagovailoa have played together this year, putting up 81 against New England (Week 1) and 85 against Buffalo (Week 8).

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Returning to practice

    Head coach Brian Flores said Wednesday that Parker (shoulder) will resume practicing, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports. The Dolphins will officially designate Parker for return from injured reserve later Wednesday, thereby opening a 21-day window for evaluation at practice. On a related note, Flores confirmed that Will Fuller (finger) fellow wideout still isn't ready to resume handling reps. The Dolphins haven't decided whether Parker will be activated ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants, but whenever the veteran does return to action, he'll operate alongside Jaylen Waddle as one of Miami's clear top wideouts.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Not practicing to begin week

    Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said that Parker (shoulder), who remains on injured reserve, is making progress but won't rejoin the team for practice Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Parker is eligible to play Sunday against the Panthers after spending the required three games on IR, but the fact that the Dolphins didn't open up his 21-day window evaluation for the start of Week 12 prep isn't a positive early sign for his chances of suiting up this weekend. Will Fuller (finger) also has yet to be designated for return from IR, so Miami could be in line for another game without two of its starting receivers.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: May not be activated Week 12

    Coach Brian Flores said Monday he's unsure whether Parker (shoulder) will be designated to return from IR in Week 12, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Parker is eligible to return as early as Sunday's upcoming game against the Panthers, but it looks like the Dolphins aren't yet certain whether he's progressed well enough in his recovery. Flores said the same of Will Fuller (finger). As the week goes on, the team will continue to evaluate both wideouts, but for now it looks like Tua Tagovailoa again could have to operate with the likes of Preston Williams, Mack Hollins, Isaiah Ford and Albert Wilson rotating into the lineup.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Officially placed on IR

    The Dolphins placed Parker (shoulder/hamstring) on injured reserve Friday. With Parker now officially in line to miss at least three games and Will Fuller (finger) still on IR, the Dolphins are left with Jaylen Waddle, Albert Wilson, Preston Williams, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford as their current healthy wideouts.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Expected to land on IR

    Parker (shoulder/hamstring) is expected to be placed on IR by the Dolphins, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Look for the move to become official later Friday, but in the wake of an injury setback, Parker is now on track to miss the Dolphins' next three games. In his anticipated absence, Jaylen Waddle, Albert Wilson, Preston Williams, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford are the team's current healthy wideout options.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Suffers setback

    Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Parker (shoulder/hamstring) suffered a setback this week and isn't expected to play Sunday against the Texans, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports. The 28-year-old was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday, but it appears he may not be able to participate at Friday's session. Parker returned from a three-game absence last week against Buffalo and caught eight of 11 targets for 85 yards, but he's clearly not fully healthy. Jaylen Waddle should work as Miami's top wideout. Preston Williams was a healthy scratch Week 8 due to disciplinary reasons.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Remains limited participant

    Parker (shoulder/hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Parker still hasn't practiced fully since Week 4, but a trio of limited practices last week were enough for him to put an end to a three-game absence in the Dolphins' 26-11 loss to the Bills. Even if not 100 percent, Parker managed to deliver a productive outing in his return to the lineup, recording eight receptions for 85 yards on 11 targets. So long as he's able to practice in at least a limited capacity again Friday, Parker should have good odds of suiting up for Sunday's game against the Texans.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Limited at Wednesday's practice

    Parker (shoulder/hamstring) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Parker has been a fixture on the injury report since Week 5 with the same two health concerns, but he put an end to a three-game absence and returned to the lineup for Sunday's loss to Buffalo. He played a healthy 91 percent of the offensive snaps in the contest, finishing with eight receptions for 85 yards on 11 targets. Assuming he didn't suffer any setbacks in Week 8, Parker's limitations to begin Week 9 are most likely maintenance-related. The wideout looks on track to remain a top target for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in this weekend's matchup with the Texans.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Busy day in return

    Parker (shoulder/hamstring) secured eight of 11 targets for 85 yards in the Dolphins' 26-11 loss to the Bills on Sunday. Suiting up for the first time since Week 4, Parker comfortably paced the Dolphins across the board in receptions, receiving yards and targets. The veteran wideout's numbers unfortunately came in another loss for the Dolphins, but with Will Fuller (IR/finger) still sidelined, Parker should continue to enjoy a robust role in Miami's inconsistent passing game against the porous Texans secondary Week 9.

  • Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Expected back Sunday

    Parker (shoulder/hamstring), who is listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Parker has missed the Dolphins' last three games, but after logging a week of limited practices, he appears poised to return to action. Assuming he's cleared ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, Parker could be primed for a key role in Miami's passing offense alongside Jaylen Waddle, with fellow wideouts Will Fuller (finger) and Preston Williams (undisclosed) unavailable.
