The bye week seemed to come at the right time for Parker, as he's been playing through some nicks and bruises. It's led to some inconsistent production, as he's totaled just five receptions over the last two games, and now has a rookie quarterback under center. Those are concerns, as is his matchup with the Rams. Jalen Ramsey has allowed just 0.57 yards per snap in coverage, which ranks as the eighth-lowest mark in all of football. Teams are also avoiding him when possible, as he's seen just one target every 9.4 snaps in coverage, which also ranks as the eighth-lowest mark in the league, and that's despite covering top receivers. Parker has been struggling to gain separation, as evidenced by his 1.9-yard average depth of separation at target, which ranks as the third-lowest mark in the league. But hey, Tagovailoa has to throw to someone, right? Parker is still someone who should be considered a mid-to-low-end WR3, but he doesn't have a very high ceiling this week.
