DeVante Parker Fantasy Football News 2020

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.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been cleared to play in Sunday’s game against the Giants, ESPN reports. Parker left last week’s game early with a concussion but should get back into your fantasy football lineups. WR Albert Wilson has also been cleared to return from his concussion. The returns make WR Isaiah Ford a poor fantasy option this week

The Dolphins and WR DeVante Parker are close to finalizing a 4-year, $40 million extension with "lots of guaranteed money," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's a well-deserved payday for Parker, who's enjoyed the rare 5th-year breakout. He's sitting 22nd among WRs in PPR points through 14 weeks and ranks 23rd among 83 qualifying WRs in Pro Football Focus' receiving grades. Parker turns just 27 in January.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Giants. He put in a full practice on Friday, though, which suggests he's close to getting cleared. We'll get Parker's official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he'll be a high-upside WR2 play. WR Albert Wilson (concussion) is also listed as questionable after a full practice on Friday.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (concussion) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. So he's made some progress through the protocol and at least has a shot to play against the Giants this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another Parker update.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker left Sunday’s game against the Jets with a possible concussion. His return is questionable. Before departing, Parker caught 2 passes for 28 yards.

UPDATE: Parker was ruled out at halftime.

Dolphins WRs Albert Wilson (ribs) and Jakeem Grant (ankle) both exited Sunday's game against the Browns. Neither has been a fantasy factor this year, but their absences open up a few extra targets for WR DeVante Parker, WR Allen Hurns and TE Mike Gesicki.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores announced Monday that WR Preston Williams will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Jets. No word yet on Williams' exact injury or whether it'll impact his availability for the start of the 2020 campaign. It's the end of a promising rookie season that saw Williams dominate in preseason action and then post a 32-428-3 line in 8 regular season games. He leaves behind 7.5 targets per game. Allen Hurns is the best bet to step into Williams' spot but isn't worth rostering in fantasy right now. WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki should get volume boosts with Williams out.

Update: ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports that it's an ACL tear for Williams. We'll see if he can get back to full strength for the start of next season.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Jakeem Grant should continue to serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs — but none can be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. DeVante Parker, Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams will serve as Miami’s top 4 WRs but none is a bankable fantasy play.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip, calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Patriots this weekend. That'd leave DeVante Parker, Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams as Miami's top 4 WRs. None is a recommended fantasy play vs. a tough New England secondary.

8:07am EDT 7/26/19

The Dolphins have signed WR Allen Hurns to a 1-year deal worth up to $3 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Recently cut by the Cowboys, Hurns is reportedly recovered from the dislocated ankle and broken leg he suffered during last year's playoffs. The 27-year-old has totaled just 1,256 yards over the past 3 seasons after that huge 1,031-yard, 10-TD 2015 campaign. Hurns should at least slide in as Miami's #4 WR and could push Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson for snaps. It'll be a situation to keep an eye on over the next month.
