  • Posted: 3/12/2019 9:40am ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker and the team are closing in a on two-year, $13 million contract extension that will include a number of incentives.

    Huddle Up: A low-risk, high-reward deal is ideal for Parker, who at age 26 is still brimming with potential.

  • Posted: 3/12/2019 9:28am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker was close Tuesday, March 12, to agreeing on a new two-year deal with the team, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been a perennial fantasy tease and slipped to new career lows last season in games played (11) targets (47), receptions (24) and yards (309). Perhaps a new coaching regime will light a fire under the underachieving first-round pick, but the Dolphins' QB situation remains far from settled so it's best to steer clear outside of last-round, shot-in-the-dark picks in drafts.

  • Posted: 3/2/2019 10:52am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year option for 2019 is expected to be rescinded, which would make him an unrestricted free-agent this offseason. The team would save $9.38 million if Parker is cut.

    Huddle Up: Parker has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but likely will receive interest from multiple teams if he is available this offseason. He could be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts depending on his situation.

  • Posted: 2/8/2019 10:32pm ET

    The Philadelphia Eagles might be interested in Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker if he is released, in the opinion of Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, who notes that the team reportedly discussed acquiring Parker from Miami at last year's trade deadline.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been mostly disappointing in four seasons with the Dolphins, but at just 26 years old and with ample physical ability, the former first-round pick could quickly become a person of interest were he to land in the right situation.

  • Posted: 12/31/2018 4:31pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is expected to be released this offseason. The team would save $9.4 million salary cap space if they cut Parker.

    Huddle Up: Parker probably would receive interest from several teams if available this offseason but may not be able to find a starting job. He has the potential to be a solid receiver and could have fantasy value depending on his next team.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 1:28pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker was blanked on three targets in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Parker was held to just three grabs for 31 yards on 11 targets in his final four outings, wrapping up another disappointing, erratic and injury-marred season. Perhaps one day the light just goes off for the speed burner, but it's starting to become a recurring theme.

  • Posted: 12/27/2018 12:27pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker will be active for the Week 17 game even though his 2019 salary of $9.37 million would be guaranteed if he suffered a significant injury during the game.

    Huddle Up: Parker has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and probably will not receive a lot of targets this week. He should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2018 12:54pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Parker has not been a big part in the passing game this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/20/2018 5:38pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker 'seemingly being phased out of the offense' was brought up to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, who said that 'it's a combination of injuries, production, practice.' Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald mentioned the club 'appears very likely to move on' from Parker after the season.

    Huddle Up: Loggains isn't incorrect, as Parker has simply been a bust for the most part in his four years in Miami. The former first-round draft choice has a lot of talent, so it's possible he bounces back elsewhere, but regarding the present day, owners can safely leave Parker on the waiver wire with the season about to reach its conclusion.

  • Posted: 12/20/2018 3:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Parker was not targeted in the last game and has been held to four receptions or less in seven of his nine games this season. He probably should be avoided in all leagues especially because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 5:36pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) had no offensive statistics and he was targeted just once in the Week 15 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He entered the day questionable due to a shoulder ailment.

    Huddle Up: Parker has a ton of potential but he has rarely been able to stay on the field for several games in a row without any setbacks due to injury. As such he isn't a reliable fantasy option. The Dolphins host the Jaguars in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/14/2018 11:13am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Parker has caught only 22 passes in eight games this season and has been held to 40 yards or less in five of those games. He can be benched in most leagues this week because he will have a tough matchup.

  • Posted: 12/13/2018 1:19pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been held to under 20 yards in three of his last five games but has been targeted 14 times in the last three games. He should have a role in the passing game this week but can be benched in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 2:16pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught one pass for 18 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last five games and has not been a big factor in the passing game. He can be avoided in most leagues next week.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 1:40pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 7, but is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Parker was able to find the end zone last week but was held to under 50 yards for the sixth time in seven games this season. He should be targeted in the passing game this week, but owners should be able to find better options for their lineups.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 1:21pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Parker's status for the Week 14 in the next day or two. He picked up his first touchdown last week but has posted at least 50 yards in only one game this season. Owners should be able to find better options and can avoid Parker.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 6:33pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught four of his seven targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 21-17 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: It was Parker's first touchdown of the year, and he still has just a single game with 50-plus receiving yards. He is a shot-in-the-dark flex play.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 4:44pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Parker could be a game-time decision for the Week 13 game, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He likely would receive some targets if he plays but can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 4:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Parker has not done much since his 134-yard game in Week 8 and has been held to 10 yards or less in two of his last three games. He can be avoided in most leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/28/2018 1:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Parker, who is no stranger to the injury report, has managed just 17 grabs for 235 yards with no scores through six outings. As such he isn't someone to depend upon outside of the deepest of fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 7:48pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker finished with 10 yards on three receptions in a 27-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Injuries and inconsistent play continue to be Parker's calling cards, but he could find himself as the focal point of the passing attack if the injury that Danny Amendola suffered turns out to be serious.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 3:16pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been targeted at least nine times in two of his last three games but has posted at least 50 yards in only one of his five games in 2018. Owners in most leagues probably will be able to find better options and can avoid Parker.

  • Posted: 11/20/2018 10:32am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) appeared to have normal movement with his injured shoulder as he caught passes at practice Tuesday, Nov. 20

    Huddle Up: Parker has come on of late with 12 catches for 185 yards in the three games before the Dolphins' Week 11 bye, and he may not miss any time. See how the rest of the practice week goes.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 1:55pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) suffered an AC joint sprain in his shoulder in Week 10 and is considered week-to-week, according to a source. He will not need surgery and has more time to recover with the Dolphins on a bye next week.

    Huddle Up: Parker only caught five of 11 targets for 43 yards yesterday, but he has now averaged 7.3 targets over his last three contests. Consistency isn't there yet, though, so starting him as a flex in good matchups is the safest route to take.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 4:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) left the Week 10 game against the Green Bay Packers due to a shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have seen this movie before. Parker can be an electric player when he is healthy, but he has a difficult time staying on the field. The good news is Week 11 is a bye, so he'll get a chance to heal up.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 12:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Parker has had one outstanding performance this season and has combined for 48 yards in the other three games he has played. He should receive some targets this week but can stay on the bench in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 12:48pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Parker has had one big game this season but is coming off a disappointing performance last week. He should see more targets this week against the Green Bay Packers but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 4:18pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Parker struggled in the last game and was held to one catch for eight yards. He has received 11 targets in the last two games but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 9:55pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker finished with one catch for eight yards on two targets in Week 9 versus the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: While owners will be quick to dismiss this as the same old rollercoaster ride Parker usually gives fantasy owners (he had six catches for 134 yards in Week 8), he had one play wiped out due to penalty and Brock Osweiler underthrew him on another potential big gain. With that said, inconsistency is going to be par for the course for just about any receiver with Osweiler under center. Parker is going to be a risky flex option at best in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 7:27pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker will continue to be moved between receiver positions to make sure 'guys can't get a beat on him,' head coach Adam Gase said.

    Huddle Up: The strategy seemed to work in Week 8 as Parker caught six passes for 134 yards. Consistency has always been the issue with Parker, but he has enough upside to deploy as a WR3 against the New York Jets in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 10:21pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught six passes (on nine targets) for 134 yards during the team's loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: A frequent inactive this season, Parker stepped up Thursday night. Now the question is whether Parker's performance endeared him to the Dolphins or simply piqued trade interest around the NFL? We'll know by this coming Tuesday. Add Parker on your watch list.

  • Posted: 10/22/2018 1:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) is expected to play in Week 8, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Despite Parker's tenure to forget in Miami, the Dolphins need him with both Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson nursing injuries. However, it is best to wait at least a week before deploying Parker into starting lineups. He has played sparingly in 2018 as he has not been able to stay healthy.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 9:23am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has received some trade interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Parker has struggled with injuries this season and could be moved before the trade deadline. He would be joining a better offense if he is traded to the Eagles but probably would only be a flex option against favorable matchups and not a weekly starting option.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 6:57am ET

    Updating a previous report, the Miami Dolphins would want at least a third-round pick in any potential deal involving WR DeVante Parker, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

    Huddle Up: Multiple teams have expressed interest in the 25-year-old injury-prone receiver, who has been limited to two receptions for 40 yards through two games this season. At this point, he's not worth starting in any format but his fantasy value could receive a boost if he is dealt to another club in need of receiving help.

  • Posted: 10/20/2018 11:06am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is a trade target for several teams, but the Dolphins are not shopping him at this point. The Dolphins have talked with multiple teams about Parker.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few weeks to see if Parker will stay with the Dolphins or join a new team. He has struggled with injuries this season and should be avoided in most leagues at this time.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 3:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) said he will be available for the Week 7 game but is not sure how much playing time he will be able to handle because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been limited to only two games because of injuries and has posted only 40 yards in those games. Owners probably should avoid him even if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 11:43am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, but is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Parker appears to have a good chance to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He is a risky option because of his lack of production this season and can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 12:24pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Parker appears to be on track to play this week, but his role in the passing game is uncertain. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their starting lineup.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 2:06pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Parker was rather limited in the game last week against the Chicago Bears, and fantasy owners should err on the side of caution and wait to see him make it through a full game without any restrictions before trusting him again. Parker has a ton of ability, but his propensity for injury always makes him a risky fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/15/2018 2:16pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was limited to only four snaps during the team's Week 6 game because he is stilling dealing with an injury, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Parker has struggled with injuries this season and may be questionable for Week 7, so owners should keep an eye on his practice participation. He probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues until he is recovered from his quadriceps injury.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 12:50pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Parker may be a game-time decision again this week, so owners can keep an eye on the situation. He will be facing a tough opponent this week and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 12:22pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) said he is not sure if he will be able to play in the Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners can keep an eye on the situation to see if Parker will be able to play against the Chicago Bears. He would be facing a tough defense if he is active and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 5:49am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) is considered a game-time decision for Week 5's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Parker was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in three limited practice sessions during the week but is in jeopardy of missing his second consecutive game and fourth contest in the last five weeks. Fantasy owners should look for safer alternatives even if the Dolphins decide to activate him versus the Bengals.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 11:05am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Parker has missed most of the season because of various injuries and probably will be a game-time decision for Week 5. Owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups and avoid Parker even if he is active.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 7:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase didn't 'sound overly optimistic' about WR DeVante Parker's (quadriceps) chances of returning to action in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: In other words, it's looking more likely than not that Parker will sit out his second consecutive ballgame and fourth in five weeks this season. Even when he does return, it's not a given that he be placed back in starting lineups right away.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 11:46am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Parker may be a game-time decision again this week, so owners should monitor the situation. He has played in only one game this season because of injuries and has recorded two catches for 40 yards. Owners should be able to find better options for their lineups and can avoid Parker.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 12:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Parker appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3, but the team has not talked about his status. He would be a risky option for owners since he has not played yet this season but could be at least a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 11:26am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's (finger) status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been doing more during practice, so owners should know more about his status in the next few days. It is not known if he will be eased back into the offense, but he has a chance to be at least a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 8:51am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is practicing Thursday, Sept. 20, and is looking more comfortable catching the ball.

    Huddle Up: Parker has been inactive for the Dolphins' first two games and is merely an end-of-the-bench stash right now until we see him doing something productive in live-game action.

  • Posted: 9/19/2018 2:01pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was able to participate in a full practice session Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Parker has had a difficult time with injuries during his brief career, but it appears he'll be just fine despite this nagging issue. Check back Friday on his official status for Week 3. When healthy he is a decent WR4 with some upside in most fantasy formats.
