2019 RTSports Outlook

Parker was once again a bust last year, playing 11 games and doing little while on the field. He had just 309 yards in a score. Parker showed his upside in Week 8, though, catching six passes for 134 yards. At this point, a change of scenery would do him good. He never topped 750 yards in four seasons with the Dolphins. Parker has a world of talent but just can't put it together. He is a big target that does a great job of stretching the field and making the acrobatic catch. He is a playmaker. Parker needs to sharpen his route running some and be more consistent overall. Fantasy Outlook: Parker is a good buy-low candidate. You will be able to get him for cheap and his ceiling is high if he finally puts it together. Just have low expectations for him, so you aren't disappointed when he is a bust once again. For now, consider him a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver. He can get around 55 receptions for 700 yards and five scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

It wouldn't be the NFL offseason if we didn't have the typical Devante Parker: Practice Superstar headlines. I do not care. And you shouldn't either. Parker has now had four NFL seasons. In all of them, he was given significant playing time. He has never produced. That is because he is not good at football. Now playing for the worst version of the Dolphins he has seen, Parker is supposed to break out? No. It is really frustrating to read the reports every year about how great Parker is in OTAs or training camp. It has never translated into the regular season. Why would it start now? At least this year, fantasy owners seem to have caught on. Parker is still being drafted, but only in the very final picks of fantasy drafts, outside the top 60 WRs. That is where he belongs. Historically, WRs seeing relevant target shares that have not broken out by their third season never break out. Parker fits this category. A breakout would be exceedingly rare and usually it involves extenuating circumstances (like Julian Edelman playing cornerback for the start of his career). Parker was thrust into a relevant role as a rookie and has done nothing useful for four years. If he miraculously breaks through in year five, I will happily watch from the sidelines. Chase more plausible upside with the last player on your bench.

Player Notes
Nov 11 6:40pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target in a 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, with his 10 targets leading the team. Parker could only haul in five of those passes, however, finishing with just 69 yards receiving in the win, and failing to score a touchdown for only the second time in the past six games. It may have been a disappointing final line, as the Dolphin offense only managed 229 yards of offense on the day, but Parker is seemingly firmly entrenched as Miami's number-one receiver, making him a viable flex option in most weeks. Just not for this week, as the Dolphins will face a Buffalo Bills Defense in Week 11 that's allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers in 2019.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught five of his 10 targets for 69 yards in a 16-12 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10.

Fantasy Spin: Parker led the team in catches, yards and targets, and he has become the de facto No. 1 option in the Miami passing attack. He should be a serviceable WR3 going forward.

From TheHuddle

Nov 9 1:30pm ET

After scoring his fourth touchdown in five games, the stock of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker continues to rise. Scoring 11 points on four receptions last week in Miamis first win of the season, Parker has now scored 48 fantasy points in standard leagues, on 22 receptions in the Dolphins past five games. With the news that teammate Preston Williams will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury, Parker should be in for an even larger share of work, as Williams was the only Dolphin who had more targets on the year than he does. Parker and the Dolphins will have a tougher task in Week 10, going on the road to face an Indianapolis Colts Defense thats allowing the 14th-fewest points to wide receivers in 2019. Even with the tough matchup, Parker is a WR3 with upside, considering Miamis commitment to throwing the ball along with the lack of better options at their skill positions.

Experiencing a win for the first time in 2019, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker caught a touchdown pass for the fourth time in five weeks, scoring 11 points in standard leagues in a 26-18 victory over the New York Jets. Parker caught 4-of-6 targets for 57 yards and connected with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on a 17-yard score midway through the second quarter. Once thought likely to be traded by the rebuilding Dolphins, Parker is second on the team in targets and could see a bump in usage if teammate Preston Williams is forced to miss any time with a knee injury suffered in the Dolphins win. If Williams is unable to go, Parker moves into WR3/4 territory, with the Dolphins heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

Nov 3 7:03pm ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught four passes for 57 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 9. He was targeted six times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Parker has caught a touchdown in four of the last five games and has been targeted at least six times in each of the last three games. He has become a reliable target for Ryan Fitzpatrick and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 2 8:40pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has a significant upside against the Jets on Sunday. With 18 targets over the last two games, the 26-year-old has 11 catches for 114 yards, while also hauling in a touchdown in three of his previous four outings. Parker could serve as an adequate streamer against an unimpressive Jets Defense in leagues of all sizes, especially in PPR formats, for those looking for help to get through a bye.

Oct 29 12:50pm ET

After scoring touchdowns in three-straight games, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was kept out of the end zone in Monday's 27-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Targeted a team-high eight times, Parker finished with 59 yards on six receptions, with his longest completion going for 15 yards. Along with many of his now-departed teammates, Parker has seemingly been on Miami's trade-block all season but still remains a Dolphin with only hours remaining before the Oct. 29 deadline. If he does stay in Miami, Parker will remain a boom-or-bust WR4/5, barring a dramatic turnaround by the Dolphin offense.

From RotoBaller

Oct 29 12:13am ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker posted six receptions for a team-high 59 yards on eight targets in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Spin: Parker was the top target for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, but it was still a minimal splash from a fantasy perspective. However, Parker could be a nice streaming option and low-cost DFS play against the equally lowly New York Jets in South Florida next Sunday.

From TheHuddle

Oct 25 1:20pm ET

Heading into a Week 8 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football, trade rumors continue to swirl around Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker. With Miami seemingly willing to trade anything of value, teams such as San Francisco and Green Bay have reportedly checked on what it would take to acquire the speedy fifth-year receiver whos on a team-friendly contract through 2020. Parker has helped his own case for getting shipped out before the Oct. 29 deadline, catching touchdowns in his last three games. Averaging just under 11 points-per-game in standard leagues over that stretch, Parker was targeted 10 times in last weeks loss to the Bills and should continue to see the highest volume of looks behind teammate Preston Williams. The Steelers are allowing the 14th-fewest points to wide receivers on the season, but with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center and the Dolphins likely to spend much of the game trailing, expect Parker to see plenty of looks down the field. This makes him a solid WR4 with some upside, but also someone with the lowest of floors given how much difficulty Miami has had in moving the ball this season.

From RotoBaller

Oct 20 11:10pm ET

Rarely consistent in his pro career, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has now scored in three straight games, catching a 12-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second quarter of a 31-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Parker caught five of his team-high 10 targets and ended with 55 yards and the aforementioned touchdown. With it seeming a certainty that hell be moved before the trade deadline at the end of the month, Parker continues to make his case for a team in a better situation to make a trade for the speedy receiver. The Dolphins should continue to give him plenty of looks in Week 8 when they travel to Pittsburgh on Monday night, putting Parker in WR4/5 territory, particularly given the Steelers middling pass defense.

From RotoBaller

Oct 20 5:23pm ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught five passes for 55 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. He was targeted 10 times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Parker found the end zone for the third straight week and appears to have a nice connection with Ryan Fitzpatrick. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option next week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 18 10:00am ET

He may have scored touchdowns in his past two games but Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker still isn't trending up and still doesn't belong on your fantasy roster. Even in a favorable matchup last week against the previously winless Washington Redskins, and with teammate Preston Wilson drawing most of cornerback Josh Norman's attention, Parker still only finished with 28 yards on three receptions, with his touchdown not coming until Miami's final drive. Heading into a Week 7 matchup with a Buffalo defense that's allowing the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers on the season, Parker should only be a dart thrown at the flex position by desperate owners in deep leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 14 12:50pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker made the last of his three receptions count on Sunday, with an 11-yard touchdown catch with just six seconds remaining in Miami's 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins. Parker has now caught a touchdown in his last two games but was only targeted a total of eight times in those two, after averaging just under seven targets in his previous three. The speedy receiver only received four targets on Sunday, putting him behind five other players, all of whom received at least six looks. Getting less and less attention in an offense that's going nowhere fast, there are few reasons to take a flyer on Parker with Miami facing Buffalo's top-ranked pass defense in Week 7.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 5:13pm ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker registered three receptions for 28 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Spin: Despite the touchdown he is still nothing more than a WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 1:20pm ET

The subject of trade rumors all season, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker will have his best chance to succeed before the October 29 trade deadline, as he's facing a great matchup against the Washington Redskins in Week 6. Usually a touchdown-dependent boom-or-bust option, Parker scored for the first time in Miami's last game and ended with 70 yards on four catches in a blowout loss to the Chargers. While teammate Preston Williams has been receiving more targets than him, there should be plenty of balls for Parker as well, with the Redskins sporting the third-worst defense against wide receivers. With the trade deadline fast approaching, don't be surprised to see Parker receive more than the six targets he's been averaging through his first four games. Williams may be the preferred option in PPR, but Parker should be given some consideration at flex given his matchup and the upside that comes with his big-play ability.

Sep 29 10:40pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker scored the lone touchdown for the Fins on Sunday, with Miami moving to an imperfect 0-4 following a 30-10 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Chargers. Parker put Miami on the board on their first drive of the game, giving Miami a 7-3 lead after hauling in a 34-yard pass from Josh Rosen. The speedy receiver collected all four of his targets and finished with a team-high 70 yards but is only a boom-or-bust option in a Miami offense that's going nowhere fast.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 10:03pm ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker rolled up four receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Spin: Parker has always had speed to burn, but his biggest obstacle has been staying healthy. He has had some hamstring issues in the past, but is healthy this season. He isn't a bad WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, as he is definitely the best of the lot in Miami. The team is off in Week 5 for its bye, however.

From TheHuddle

Sep 22 10:40pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker did little to help any desperate owners forced to start him in Week 3, catching 3-of-6 targets for 56 yards in a 31-6 Dolphins loss to the Cowboys. But Parker did make the highlight reel with a brilliant one-handed catch for 40 yards on Miami's opening drive, even as he was being interfered with by defender Chidobe Awuzie. Parker would also draw another 26-yard pass interference on Awuzie but would do little else in the blowout loss. While he's always capable of busting a big play, Parker is just not a viable fantasy option on the dumpster fire that is the Dolphins offense.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 6:53pm ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker posted three receptions for 56 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin: Parker has some limited fantasy appeal heading into Week 4 against the Chargers in deeper leagues due to his downfield ability. Josh Rosen looked for him fairly regularly in this one. Avoid Parker in leagues of 12 or fewer teams, however.

From TheHuddle

Sep 16 4:20pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker tied for the team-lead with his seven targets in a 43-0 loss to the Patriots on Sunday but the perennial breakout candidate was unable to haul in even a single catch. Some concessions can be made given that Parker drew primary coverage from shutdown corner Stephon Gilmore but getting blanked is still unacceptable from a fantasy perspective. With the hapless Miami Dolphins going on the road to face the Dallas Cowboys and Ryan Fitzpatrick still leading the impotent offense, there are no good reasons to start Parker in Week 3.
