Miami's receiving corps is hard to understand. After Week 4, I thought that Parker had beaten out Preston Williams to become the clear-cut WR1. Then Williams out-targeted Parker 5-3 and out-caught him 4-2. I'm not going to jump to conclusions and say that Williams is now the WR1 here, but Parker may not be a sure-thing to lead this offense in targets each week, and that limits his floor by a good margin. He's a mid-tier WR2 for me this week against the Jets.

The Jets are just 18th against fantasy wide receivers, Parker is an upside WR3 play at home this week.

Fortunately, Parker didn't need a whole lot of targets to produce last week, as he saw just three targets and finished with two catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. It's now a bit worrisome because he's seen five or less targets in 3-of-5 games this year. There were just three games all last year where he didn't see at least six targets. It is a new offense, so we must understand there may be some more volatility. Still, Parker has turned in at least 8.7 PPR points every game and has scored 11.9 or more in four of them. The Jets have allowed two 100-yard receivers on the season already, and neither of those receviers (DeAndre Hopkins and Tim Patrick) saw more than seven targets. In fact, there have been nine receivers who've totaled at least 52 yards, which highlights a high floor for Parker as the No. 1 receiver. The Jets have allowed a league-high 71.0 percent completion-rate to receivers, as well as a sky-high 9.88 yards per target. The cornerback duo that Parker will see is Pierre Desir and Lamar Jackson. This duo is likely the worst in the NFL, as they've combined to allow 27-of-33 passing for 439 yards and four touchdowns. Start Parker as a WR2 and deal with the target swings.
