Shark Bites

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots, per insider Joe Schad. Parker made it through 3 limited practices this week. He shouldn't be in fantasy lineups, but his return would be a boost for QB Ryan Tannehill and put a dent in WR Kenny Stills' outlook.

With WR Jakobi Meyers out, Patriots WR DeVante Parker led the team in targets (10), receptions (5) and receiving yards (156) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. Each of Parker's 5 catches went for 24+ yards, which is a credit to him and a reminder that this Baltimore defense is once again looking like a high-ceiling matchup for opponent passing. Kendrick Bourne checked in 2nd among wideouts with 4-58 on 5 targets. Nelson Agholor caught 2 of 3 targets for 41 yards. Lil'Jordan Humphrey actually checked in 2nd among WRs in playing time and routes but garnered just 1 target.

WR DeVante Parker “looks like the Patriots #1 WR” through 2 days of training camp, per beat writer Mark Daniels. It’s obviously early, and players won’t be in pads until Monday. But the early word has been all positive on Parker, who’s performed “on a different level,” per Daniels. The 29-year-old is currently coming cheaply in FFPC best balls with an ADP of WR65.

Based on OTAs so far, Patriots insider Evan Lazar believes "the early-front runners to dominate reps at wide receiver in 11-personnel are [DeVante] Parker (X), [Kendrick] Bourne (Z), and [Jakobi] Meyers (slot)." That'd leave 2nd-round rookie Tyquan Thornton and veteran Nelson Agholor as the 4th and 5th WRs. Lazar suggests that Agholor could be a trade or cut candidate if he doesn't climb the depth chart. None of these Patriots WRs are super exciting in fantasy drafts.

The Dolphins traded WR DeVante Parker and a 2022 5th-round pick to the Patriots for a 2023 3rd-rounder. Parker was on the outs after Miami traded for WR Tyreek Hill and signed WR Cedrick Wilson. In New England, Parker will battle for outside snaps with WRs Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne. Parker has the most raw talent of that trio but has mostly disappointed since the Fins selected him 14th overall in the 2015 draft. Also hurting Parker's 2022 fantasy outlook is that the Patriots ranked 28th in pass rate and 27th in situation-neutral pass rate last year. They figure to throw more in QB Mac Jones' 2nd season, but this will still likely be a run-leaning offense.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He just returned to practice this week. Parker has averaged 8.6 targets, 5 catches and 65.4 yards across 5 games this season, but he carries elevated risk in his first action since Week 8.
