    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.

  • Posted: 9/18/2018 11:49pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was healthy enough to play in Week 2, according to head coach Adam Gase, who cited 'a lot of moving parts' as to why Parker was inactive. Gase, who informed Parker of his decision the night before the game, also indicated that an extra week of rest wouldn't hurt with Parker's health.

    Huddle Up: Hard to imagine a coach voluntarily holding out someone he considers to be a vital part of the passing game so this news doesn't cast a very glowing portrait of Gase's view of Parker's value to the team. Miami's aerial attack has hardly been dynamic in their 2-0 start, so you'd think there's room for Parker to carve out a spot, but until he shows something he belongs moored to your bench.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 11:53am ET

    Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Parker is on track to make his 2018 debut this week as long as he does not suffer a setback. He will be facing a solid New York Jets defense but can still be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 10:10am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is 'itching to play,' head coach Adam Gase said Thursday. Sept. 13. 'We went through it today,' Gase added. 'He was involved in team reps. Running-wise, it's good. He's in great shape.'

    Huddle Up: The underachieving Parker seems ready to make his 2018 debut, and while he doesn't belong in fantasy lineups until we see how he looks, Parker's mere game presence would muck things up a little in terms of target share for Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and the rest of the Miami WRs

  • Posted: 9/12/2018 12:54pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) participated in practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Parker has had more downs than ups in his young career thus far. He'll need to show that he is consistent starting material before being plugged into lineups. If he plays, he's a flex in deep leagues at best.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 11:08am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 7, and is listed as doubtful for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Parker appears to be at least one week away from returning to the team, so he should be avoided in all leagues this week. Kenny Stills probably will be the main option in the passing game this week and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option. Danny Amendola should also receive targets and could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 8:48am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) participated in practice Friday, Sept. 7, wearing a glove on his right hand, which has a broken finger.

    Huddle Up: This is the first time Parker has practiced this week and still hasn't been seen catching passes. Don't count on him in Week 1, and continue to bump up expectations for the other Miami wideouts accordingly.

  • Posted: 9/5/2018 1:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was unable to practice Wednesday, Sept. 5.

    Huddle Up: Parker's status for the regular season opener is not yet known and will be clearer Friday. He has a ton of talent and could be a star in this league due to his speed and athleticism, but he has a terrible penchant for injury which always seems to be holding him back. At this point he is only worth rostering for depth at the wideout position.

  • Posted: 9/5/2018 6:12am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) will not play in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Parker is worth holding on the bench. If your league has a short bench and he winds up on waivers, look to stash him. Albert Wilson could be a low-end flex option against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Posted: 9/4/2018 2:26pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's (finger) ailing middle finger is 'substantially better,' according to The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley, but his availability for Week 1 is unclear.

    Huddle Up: If Parker is unable to go, Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson will all see an uptick in usage. Stills is the one to start, but only as a flex in a tough opening test versus the Tennessee Titans.

  • Posted: 9/2/2018 6:12pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is still wearing a soft cast on his left hand, but he participated in a walkthrough during practice Sunday, Sept. 2.

    Huddle Up: Parker has had issues staying on the field throughout his career, and as long as he remains sidelined, Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola should enjoy a boost in production.

  • Posted: 8/21/2018 11:51am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) still can't catch the ball and won't play this week. His Week 1 status is up in the air, according to head coach Adam Gase.

    Huddle Up: Parker's offseason continues on a downward swing. If he is unable to play in Week 1 then Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson immediately benefit. Stills, in particular, is likely to be Ryan Tannehill's No. 1 target for at least one game. For now, Parker hangs around WR3 to WR4 territory.

  • Posted: 8/15/2018 8:10am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) won't be traded, according to a league source. The Dolphins are happy Parker has advanced in his knowledge of the offense to where he knows both outside receiver spots.

    Huddle Up: Things can change, but it sounds like the team still believes in Parker. He should have ample opportunity to live up to his middle-round slotting once he recovers from the injury.

  • Posted: 8/14/2018 8:30am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is week to week with a broken middle finger, according to a source. He's expected back for the season opener.

    Huddle Up: It's always something. Parker is the quintessential tease at the position and in fantasy, but he has yet to live up to the hype. He could be a value in the middle rounds or a weekly headache.

  • Posted: 8/12/2018 11:23am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) jammed a finger on his right hand midway through practice Sunday, Aug. 12, although he remained on the field and was able to finish the session. However, Parker was 'not only covered, but blanketed' by CB Xavien Howard while being held without a catch despite seeing at least three targets during team drills prior to the injury Sunday, according to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald.

    Huddle Up: According to Salguero, Parker has yet to deliver an 'eye-opening practice' 12 days into training camp. It needs to be restated Howard was one of the league's top corners near the end of last season, but it still doesn't excuse a talent like Parker being kept in check every day for almost two weeks of practice. Parker is still a potential value pick in the seventh to eighth round area if he drops that far, but he probably shouldn't be counted on as a fantasy starter anytime soon.

  • Posted: 7/30/2018 12:40pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has not been able to do much in training camp so far while being shadowed by CB Xavien Howard. Parker's ineffectiveness has been mostly noticeable in team drills, according to The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.

    Huddle Up: Parker has given the Dolphins and fantasy owners their fair share of disappointment so far in his young career. The onus is on him to finally break out this year with Jarvis Landry gone. His upside resides in low-end WR2 territory but it's best to draft him as WR3.

  • Posted: 7/14/2018 6:26pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been a 'different guy' this offseason and is playing with a sense of urgency, according to wide receivers coach Benjamin Johnson.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have been waiting on a breakout year from Parker since he entered the league, and if he can just stay healthy, it could finally happen in 2018. He has enough upside to take a chance on as a WR3.

  • Posted: 6/6/2018 11:03am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker said his 2018 goals are to stay healthy, reach 1,000 yards and score a few touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Those would easily be career-highs for Parker, although 'a few' leaves room for interpretation. Parker's career-highs in yardage and touchdowns are 744 and four, respectively. His goals may not seem lofty, but they would mean a breakout for the four-year receiver. He's an ideal WR3 candidate.

  • Posted: 6/4/2018 1:43pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been putting in the time and work this offseason in an effort to finally break out. Coaches said few if any players have spent more time at the team facility than Parker. Specifically, more focus has been placed on studying film and managing his health.

    Huddle Up: There have been questions regarding Parker's work ethic and maturity. Has he finally grasped what it takes to be successful in the NFL? Disappointment has been attached to his name for far too long, and with Jarvis Landry gone this could really be the year he breaks out. Nevertheless, he cannot be seen as more than a WR3.

  • Posted: 5/31/2018 7:18pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been performing well in OTAs, according to wide receivers coach Ben Johnson, but Johnson said he and the other coaches won't be making 'giant claims about him' like last offseason.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners would be wise to follow a similar approach and proceed with caution when drafting Parker. He has all the physical tools, but he is a boom-or-bust WR3.

  • Posted: 5/26/2018 7:05pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has not responded to retired WR Chris Chambers' attempts to help him 'speed up his growth curve,' according to Chambers. 'I don?t know if he fully gets what it means to be a pro,' Chambers said. 'Athleticism and talent only last so long.'

    Huddle Up: This isn't the first time Parker has been accused of a lack of effort, but all reports coming from the team have been positive. It remains to be seen if Parker will ever put it all together, but his upside makes him worth a look as a WR3.

  • Posted: 5/10/2018 11:36am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has done a great job so far this offseason and seems to be playing with more of a purposed, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase posited that injuries have been the main hindrance to Parker's growth and development, including a high-ankle sprain last season. Furthermore, he believes the presence of fellow WRs Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola will aid Parker's growth.

    Huddle Up: Here we are again - another offseason in which Parker is being talked up. Last year was supposed to be Parker's breakout party, but the ankle injury was legitimate. If he can stay healthy in 2018, we might finally see that long-awaited season. View him as a WR3.

  • Posted: 4/24/2018 12:46pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year option was exercised, as expected, Tuesday, April 24.

    Huddle Up: Many thought Parker would break out last season, which he didn't, but his 2018 campaign is tailor made for a breakout with Jarvis Landry now out of the picture. As Miami's No. 1 wide receiver, he'll have WR2 upside but is a safer draftee as a WR3.

  • Posted: 4/19/2018 7:10am ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year option is expected to be exercised. It would be worth around $9.5 million.

    Huddle Up: Three years in the league, and he has a 139-1,908-8 line. However, the team let Jarvis Landry walk this offseason, which leaves Parker as the lead wide out. It's a make-it-or-break-it year for him as a WR3 in fantasy.
