DeVante Parker Fantasy Football News 2020

The Dolphins have placed WR Preston Williams on IR with his foot injury. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games -- and it sounds like it might be longer than that. HC Brian Flores admitted that the injury is "more significant than we thought." Williams is droppable in most fantasy leagues. His absence leaves DeVante Parker as Miami's clear #1 WR, with Jakeem Grant and Mack Hollins behind him on the depth chart. TE Mike Gesicki could also see a volume boost with Williams sidelined.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker suffered a groin injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Jets. He was deemed questionable to return but never did in what was an easy Miami win. We'll look for an update on Parker tomorrow. He at least gets a Week 7 bye to heal up.

The 49ers have ruled CB Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), CB Dontae Johnson (groin) and CB K'Waun Williams (knee, hip) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is also questionable. He missed last week's game against the Eagles but managed limited workouts this week. We'll check on Witherspoon's status Sunday, though he's not much of an IDP factor either way. The big takeaway here is that the Niners will miss at least 4 of their top 6 corners -- with Richard Sherman still on IR. That can only help Miami QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker suffered an ankle injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Parker returned in the 2nd quarter.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bills. At less than 100% in a matchup with CB Tre’Davious White, Parker belongs on fantasy benches this week.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bills. HC Brian Flores labeled him a game-time decision. Between the hammy and a matchup with CB Tre’Davious White, Parker belongs on fantasy benches this week.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker put in a limited practice Wednesday after injuring a hamstring in the loss at New England. That he was participating at all is an encouraging sign for his chances of playing against the Bills on Sunday. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker left Sunday's game at New England with a hamstring injury. The team has dubbed him questionable to return.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Preston Williams (knee) are not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. Both guys were full participants in Friday’s practice. Still, HC Brian Flores hinted earlier this week that guys dealing with even minor injuries might be limited in the opener. That — plus a tough matchup vs. the Patriots — makes Parker a WR3 and Williams a guy we’d rather not use in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Preston Williams (knee) were limited in Wednesday's practice. Both guys are expected to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Patriots, but HC Brian Flores hinted this morning that they could have their snaps limited. Williams isn't a recommended Week 1 starter, while Parker should be considered a WR3 against Stephon Gilmore and a tough New England pass defense.

The Dolphins are comfortable with their current WR corps heading into the 2020 campaign, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams were both big surprises this past year. Parker broke out for a 72-1,202-9 line and signed a big 4-year extension in December. Williams was pacing toward an 856-yard, 6-TD rookie season before tearing his ACL in November. He's tentatively expected to be ready for Week 1. Parker and Williams figure to open 2020 as Miami's top 2 WRs, with Allen Hurns, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford providing depth.

The Dolphins have named Chan Gailey their OC. Gailey has been out of the league since 2016 but has 14 years of experience as a HC or OC with 7 different teams. His track record is largely uninspiring, though, with only 4 of those 14 teams finishing top 10 in yards and 4 finishing top 10 in points. Gailey has tended to skew toward the run, landing 11 offenses inside the top half of the league in rushing attempts. We'll keep an eye on his plans for a Dolphins offense that will have a bunch of new pieces in 2020.

The Dolphins have fired OC Chad O'Shea. The move is mildly surprising because it feels like Miami overachieved on offense this season -- although they still ranked just 25th in points, 27th in yards and 29th in yards per play. We'll see who HC Brian Flores and the Fins tab as O'Shea's replacement. This offense figures to have a bunch of new pieces in 2020, alongside building blocks DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki.

The forecast for today's Bengals-Dolphins game calls for sustained winds of 15-20 mph with gusts up to 30. That's enough to impact the passing and kicking games. Check the updated projections for all the guys in this game.

The forecast for today's Dolphins-Giants game calls for sustained winds of 20 mph with gusts of 25+. That's enough to impact the deep-passing and kicking games. Give slight downgrades to the QBs and Ks in this game. And the downfield prowess of WRs like DeVante Parker and Darius Slayton figures to be compromised.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He’s a WR2 with upside in this matchup with the league’s 27th-ranked WR defense. WR Albert Wilson (concussion) is also active but would be a desperation fantasy play.
