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 CB Xavien Howard is active for today's game against the Falcons. He entered the day questionable with a shoulder issue but is fine to use as a low-level IDP.

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 MLB Mike Hull (shoulder) and CB Xavien Howard (shoulder) are both active for today's game against the Titans. Both are low-level IDP options at best.

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Saints and ready to use in IDP lineups. He entered the day questionable.

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is active for this morning's game against the Saints. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We heard yesterday, though, that Miami plans to continue limiting Ajayi's 3rd-down snaps. That dings his fantasy outlook -- although he remains in RB1 territory in the Week 4 Rankings.

The Dolphins plan to continue limiting RB Jay Ajayi's 3rd-down snaps. According to insider Roy Cummings, Ajayi has just three 3rd-down touches through 2 games -- and none of those came last week. “Jay is our horse, but (third down is) a good time to rest him because we have two guys that can really catch the ball and make big plays catching the ball,’’ OC Clyde Christensen said. "... Our intention is to put Damien [Williams] and Kenyan [Drake] in on some of those third-downs (and) 2-minute situations, and that’s two-fold. Because they’re good players who can make some big plays and they’re natural receivers, and it gives us a chance to breathe Jay." Ajayi remains an easy weekly fantasy start. But this plan obviously hurts his fantasy upside going forward, particularly in PPR leagues.

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso is questionable for Sunday's game because of a shoulder issue. There doesn't seem to be much more information available on it than that. We'll confirm his game status Sunday morning.

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday morning’s game against the Saints. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, though, and is fully expected to play. Ajayi’s floor is down a bit after his snaps were scaled back in that Week 3 dud vs. the Jets. But the ceiling remains high in this week's plus matchup.

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. The knee was obviously an issue against the Jets last weekend. Not only did he muster just 16 yards on 11 carries, but he played only 52.4% of the offensive snaps. We'll see if Ajayi is able to get back on the field tomorrow.

The Dolphins reinstated LB Lawrence Timmons this week, marking just a 1-week suspension after he went AWOL ahead of the Week 2 win over the Chargers. HC Adam Gase, however, has yet to commit to Timmons returning to the field Sunday in London. "We worked through a couple of things," Gase said, per ESPN.com. "L.T. handled the business he needed to handle and I'm glad he's back." We're keeping Timmons our of our Week 4 IDP rankings until/unless there's clarity on his role against the Saints. Timmons looks like a solid addition to IDP rosters for beyond Week 4, though. Miami needs him back in the lineup.

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 RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is active for today’s game against the Jets. He sat out on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. We’ve heard nothing to suggest that Ajayi will be limited today. He’s an elite RB1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) and WR DeVante Parker (ankle) are expected to play against the Jets today. Both players are listed as questionable, but there was never much concern about either's Week 3 availability. Ajayi is an elite RB1 and Parker a borderline WR2 in this 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.
