Jacob Wayne
Lineups
DeVante Parker had a tremendous breakout season a year ago and he finished as the WR7 in 1/2-point PPR leagues. However, the Patriots allowed the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers last year and elite cover corner Stephon Gilmore will shadow Parker for most of the game. Parker got the better of him in their last contest in Week 17 of last season, but that was a huge statistical outlier compared to Gilmore's season-long production. Parker will be a WR2 in some matchups, but against the Patriots, he's better-viewed as a low-upside WR3. 
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
It's hard for me to get excited about DeVante Parker now that Preston Williams is back in the lineup. Parker only earned more than six targets half of the time that he played alongside Williams. For some perspective, Williams had six-plus targets in 75 percent of his games with Parker. While Parker doesn't need a ton of looks to go off, he was held without a catch in his one game against the Patriots with Williams around. So while he went off against New England in Week 17 last year, there's no guarantee that he will see the 11 targets responsible for vaulting him to a strong fantasy finish. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were a lot of factors that led to Parker getting 128 targets last year, but maybe none more obvious than Preston Williams getting hurt and missing the second half of the season. There were just three games where Parker didn't total at least 55 yards last year, and one of them was against the Patriots. In fact, he totaled exactly zero yards on seven targets in their first matchup. He got payback in Week 17, though, racking up eight catches for 137 yards. I had to double-check that Stephon Gilmore played in that matchup, and he actually allowed almost all of it in his coverage. That was the only game all year where Gilmore allowed more than five catches or 86 yards in his coverage. My bet would be that Gilmore shadows Parker again in this game, and that Parker comes back down to earth. Gilmore has allowed a 56 percent or less completion rate in his coverage in 5-of-8 NFL seasons, including just a 46.6 percent catch-rate over the last two seasons. Parker should be considered a risky WR3/4 this week. It surely doesn't help that he's missed practice time throughout the last week, and has been limited throughout practice this week.It's a welcomed change of scenery for Anderson, as he moves on from Adam Gase, and back with his former college coach, Matt Rhule. He's the No. 3 option at best on the team, though, and maybe fourth option. It does help that they have a new quarterback who hasn't developed a favorite just yet. This matchup actually suits Anderson's strengths well, as the Raiders allowed 15.4 yards per reception to wide receivers, which ranked as the third-most in the league. The downside here is that Teddy Bridgewater only attempted a deep ball on 7.1 percent of his attempts last year, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in the league. Anderson offers one-play upside but relying on it in his first game is a tough task, especially considering we don't know where he lands on the pecking order. It is noteworthy that he had one of his best games against this secondary last year, posting 4/86/1 in Week 12. He's more of a tournament play this week where you're looking for the Panthers to exploit the Raiders' weakness downfield. He should be considered a boom-or-bust WR4/5 option in season-long.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 If you're looking for a nice FLEX option this week that could blow up and help win your matchup, it's hard to go wrong with Robby Anderson. This Panthers/Raiders game could easily turn into a shootout, which means that the Panthers are going to be throwing the ball a ton. With Anderson's speed, and the fact that he seems to be locked in as the No. 2 WR on this team, he's a solid bet to return WR3 or higher value this week. If you stole him late in your drafts, you might want to plug him into your lineup right away.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Parker has a horrible matchup going against CB Stephon Gilmore. The Patriots D is missing a lot of pieces from last year, but Parker is a very dicey fantasy play in this tough matchup.
