Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-Parker tallied 103-63-793-4 in 2020 — a step down from his breakout 2019 (128-72-1,202-9).

-He missed 2 games with a hamstring injury. He’s now missed at least 1 game in 5 of 6 career seasons.

-Parker saw an 18.8% target share in 7 games with Tua Tagovailoa— down from a 22.7% figure with Ryan Fitzpatrick.

-In those 7 games, Parker averaged 4 catches, 52.5 yards and .29 TDs. He hit 100 yards twice — and had games with 0 and 3 yards.

-Parker dropped 7 balls, giving him a bloated drop rate of 10%.

-Parker’s average depth of target (aDOT) dropped to 10.7 — easily a career low. He managed a long catch of just 31 yards.

-Parker caught only 4 of 13 red zone targets. His 6.3% TD rate fell shy of his pre-2020 career average (7.6%).

-NFL Next Gen Stats had Parker’s average separation on targets of 1.7 yards — tied with A.J. Green for the worst mark among all WRs/TEs with 43+ targets. Parker’s 2019 figure was 2.1 yards; 2.5 in 2018.

-The long-limbed Parker (6’3, 216) at least thrived in contested catch situations. He saw the 3rd most contested opportunities (35) and caught a strong 60%.

-Miami added speed WRs in free agency (Will Fuller) and the draft (top-10 pick Jaylen Waddle). Add in TE Mike Gesicki, and this Dolphins pass catching unit is among the league’s most stacked. Hence Parker’s current target projection of just 84.

-Tua enters year 2 as the clear cut starter. Now a full season removed from hip surgery, there’s reason to believe he’ll take a step forward after a lackluster 2020.

-Miami moved on from 2020 OC Chan Gailey. They replaced him from within co- OCs Eric Studesville and George Godsey. It’s unknown who will call plays.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

It feels like Parker’s been in the league for a decade, but he enters year 7 at 28 years old.

2020 brought on some predictable regression after a career-best 2019. He finished a ho hum WR40 in PPR thanks in part to an iffy rapport with Tua Tagovailoa. New target competition will likely keep him from approaching his career-highs from 2019, but he’s turned into a low-risk flier with an ADP of WR51.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker was activated from the PUP list and practiced on Monday. He ends up missing less than a week with his undislosed injury. Durability remains a concern with Parker, but he's healthy for now. And a healthy Parker should be locked into a top-3 WR role in Miami.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker will open training camp on the PUP list. No word yet on the specifics, but it’s a rough start nevertheless for a WR with his injury history. Miami brought in serious target competition this offseason — Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle — making Parker a long-shot for WR3 value.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bills. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 14. WR Jakeem Grant (ankle) is inactive, leaving Mack Hollins and Lynn Bowden as Miami’s #2 and #3 WRs.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (ankle) are listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bills. Parker has seemingly been close to playing the past 2 weeks and got in 3 limited practices this week. Expect him to play on Sunday, although it looks like he's still not at 100%. Grant reportedly suffered a high-ankle sprain last week, so he'll be at far less than 100% if he suits up.
