DeVante Parker Fantasy Football News 2017

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Adam Gase labeled him "day-to-day" before the workout. Fantasy owners can't be counting on Parker for Week 7 right now. We'll see if he can get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice all week and isn’t a lock to return for Week 7. Kenny Stills will move into the #2 spot on the depth chart but is just a fantasy flier with Miami's passing game struggling.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice all week and won't play. Kenny Stills will move into the #2 spot on the depth chart but is just a fantasy flier with Miami's passing game struggling.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now looking unlikely to play against the Falcons this weekend. That'd push Kenny Stills into #2 WR duties.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. His injury is reportedly minor, but he's not a lock to play in Atlanta this weekend. Parker's absence would push Kenny Stills up into the #2 spot on the depth chart.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's sprained ankle is "believed to be minor." Rapoport adds that Parker has a shot to play against the Falcons on Sunday. We'll monitor his practice participation throughout the week.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker injured his ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Titans and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Parker is done for the day.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is active for today's game against the Jets. He put in a full practice on Friday and shouldn't be limited in this one. Parker boasts plenty of upside in the plus matchup.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is officially questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and a full-go on Friday. The ankle adds some risk to Parker’s Week 3 outlook, but he remains a high-upside fantasy play in a plus matchup.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. He was limited on Wednesday, so this qualifies as a downgrade. The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero hears that Parker will be "fine" for this weekend's game against the Jets, but we'd like to see him get back on the practice field tomorrow. Check back then for another update.

The NFL has moved the Bucs-Dolphins game originally scheduled for this Sunday to Week 11. Both teams were scheduled to have a bye that week but will now play 16 straight weeks from Week 2 to 17. We just removed all Bucs and Dolphins from the Week 1 Rankings. The winner here is RB Doug Martin, whose 3-game suspension will now cost him a game against the tough Giants run defense rather than the Dolphins.

Sunday's opener between the Bucs and Dolphins is in limbo as Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida. The league held a conference call this morning to discuss the situation, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, but no decision was made. The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud hears that the Bucs are expecting the game to be moved to Week 11, when both teams currently have a bye week. The other option is to move the game elsewhere. We're expecting to have clarity on the situation within the next 24 hours.

QB Jay Cutler made his debut with the Dolphins Thursday night against the Ravens and appeared to be developing a connection with WR DeVante Parker. Cutler targeted Parker 4 times among 7 total pass attempts, including a 31-yard connection negated by holding. The duo connected on just 1 of their other 3 looks, a 16-yard completion. Cutler also targeted RB Jay Ajayi, WR Jarvis Landry and RB Damien Williams once apiece. After the game, Cutler called Parker a "faster Alshon [Jeffery]," referring to the WR he played with in Chicago -- and peppered with targets in their most recent work together. It's early, but we'll be watching this duo in the "dress rehearsal" Week 3 of the preseason. Parker's current mid-Round 7 ADP makes him a potential upside play in fantasy football drafts.

The Dolphins have coaxed QB Jay Cutler out of retirement with a 1-year, $10 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move is a sure sign that the team has elected to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo season-ending surgery on his ACL. Cutler's 2016 season ended with a torn labrum, and he finished with a 59.1% completion rate, 4 TDs and 5 INTs in 5 appearances. The year prior, though, he connected on 64.4% of his attempts with 21 TDs and 11 INTs. That season came under OC Adam Gase, who is now HC of the Dolphins. That experience in the offense will help Cutler get ready with Week 1 just 5 weeks away. Cutler will be piloting a run-heavy offense and is no more than a lower-end QB2 in fantasy. But he'll keep this offense on schedule. We're not moving any Miami skill-position players down the rankings.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his left knee on a non-contact play in Thursday's training-camp practice. That's the knee in which he partially tore his ACL last December. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that the team is "concerned" about Tannehill's injury. We should learn more over the next 24 hours. Tannehill is no more than a QB2 in fantasy football, but his loss would hurt WRs Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Matt Moore is Miami's backup.

The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad issued a breakout alert on Dolphins WR DeVante Parker. The former 1st-rounder has flashed at times through 2 NFL seasons but struggled with durability and consistency. Reports on his offseason have been glowing, though, from Miami's coaching staff, players and the media. "I think DeVante’s kind of hitting his stride right now and everybody’s seeing it," backup QB Matt Moore said. "You throw the ball to him, he makes it really easy. He makes the quarterback look good a lot of the times. So he’s a guy who’s really hitting his stride I think, and he’s continuing to learn. He’ll be a big part for us this year.” HC Adam Gase predicted a “gigantic year” for Parker. The biggest hurdle in the way of a breakout season is volume. The Fins ranked 31st in pass attempts last year and boast a deep pass-catching corps that includes Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Julius Thomas. Parker could certainly work his way toward the top of the target totem pole, though. He's worth a shot at his recent 7th-round ADP.

The Dolphins re-signed WR Kenny Stills to a 4-year, $32 million deal. It's not quite as rich as some of the numbers we heard thrown around over the past few weeks, but it's still a nice chunk of change for the 24-year-old. Stills is coming off a strong 2016 campaign that saw him average 17.3 yards per catch and score 9 times on 43 grabs. He still finished just 45th among WRs in PPR point, though. And it's tough to bank on him repeating the yards per catch and TD rate. It'll be tough to like him as more than a WR4 in 2017 fantasy football drafts. Stills' return also makes us wonder just how confident Miami is that WR DeVante Parker will emerge.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) is active for today’s game against the Ravens. There’s still a chance that he’s limited and/or suffers a setback, so consider him a risky WR3.

Dolphins insider Armando Salguero reports that WR DeVante Parker (back) will play against the Ravens today. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport called Parker "unlikely" to play earlier this morning, but he must have looked and felt better than expected in warmups. Parker is still a risky WR3 at less than 100%.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) "unlikely" to play against the Ravens today. That's not a surprise after he was unable to practice all week. Parker's absence should theoretically mean more targets for WR Jarvis Landry. Kenny Stills will step in as Miami's #2 WR.
