There are a lot of fantasy players who are bailing on Parker at this point in his career, and while I get why they'd want to do that, it's a mistake. He's a former first-round pick who is 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, who has produced when he's been healthy. There've been 25 games in which he's seen at least five targets, and in those games he's averaged 68.2 yards and 0.3 touchdowns, which is low-end WR2 numbers. He did that with Jarvis Landry on the team, who is now a Cleveland Browns receiver. It's rare to find a player this late in drafts who has 120-target potential, but Parker does. If he stays healthy, he's going to finish as a top-30 wide receiver with upside for more.

Devante Parker impressing with work ethic

Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports that Dolphins coaches are saying,"few if any players have spent more time in the building than Parker since last season ended. He’s been focused on managing his health as well as studying film."

Fantasy Impact

After getting hammered by Adam Gase during the 2016 preseason for not showing enough dedication, Parker has now had glowing reports over the last two offseasons. While many will roll their eyes at the news, Parker has been extremely productive when on the field. There have been 25 games in his career where he's totaled at least five targets, and in those games he's averaged 68.2 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game, which amount to low-end WR2 numbers. Keep in mind that was with Jarvis Landry on the field, who is now in Cleveland. There's a realistic opportunity for Parker to see 120-plus targets if he stays healthy, and that would almost guarantee WR2/3 production out of him with a higher ceiling than most want to admit. At his current cost of WR39 in early ADP, Parker is one of the biggest steals at the wide receiver position.
