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.
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.
