Devante Parker News
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker heads into the 2019 season looking to stay healthy. He is confident in his abilities, but knows the biggest thing holding him back has been being able to stay on the field. "Staying healthy. That's it. I can play," Parker said. He had 24 receptions in 11 games in 2018, a far cry from the 56 and 57 receptions he posted in the previous two seasons. We've seen this movie before, as Parker has looked sharp in the offseason, garnered a bunch of preseason hype and then fallen well short of expectations due to injuries. If he can stay healthy in 2019, he has plenty of speed to burn. However, that's a big if.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has been the best player in camp the last five weeks. He hauled in two more touchdowns in practice on Wednesday and would be a Pro Bowler if he played like this in the regular season. That's been precisely the problem with the disappointing Parker to this point in his career. When it doesn't matter he stands out and when the lights come on he's either injured, struggles with drops or completely disappears altogether. It was a surprise that Miami even held onto the first-round bust, but Parker will be given another chance after catching 24 passes for 309 yards and one touchdown in 11 games in 2018. He has two touchdowns in the last two years and hasn't played in a full season yet. Fantasy owners will want to see something before investing.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was excellent in red-zone drills at organized team activities this week, catching multiple passes. The new coaching staff and receivers coach Karl Dorrell are trying to use positive reinforcement with Parker, who has responded well to the approach. The 26-year-old is being given a second chance under the new coaching staff after struggling with injuries, drops and just poor overall play after being the 14th overall pick in the 2015 draft. Parker had only 24 receptions for 309 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last year and hasn't gone over 57 catches or four touchdowns in any season in his four years. Most fantasy owners will continue to write him off, but he could be worth a late-round flier if he continues to look good in 2019.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker is happy that the Dolphins trusted him enough to bring him back in 2019 and said "they have confidence in me again, have trust in me, have faith in me to sign me back again." Parker also said he's fully healthy this offseason. The 26-year-old was hurt to start last season and wound up finishing with a career-low 24 catches for just 309 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. While Parker has the talent, he continues to underwhelm for Miami and fantasy owners, and he's caught only two touchdowns in the last two seasons and nine total in his four years in the league. Even if he remains the No. 1 wideout in Miami in 2019, Parker's fantasy value is down in the dumps. And Miami's quarterback situation is also troubling.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker is believed to already be gone and wideout Danny Amendola is iffy to be re-signed as well. Even Kenny Stills could be at risk with a $4 million salary cap savings if he's cut. The Dolphins have been wanting to move on from Parker for a while, so that is no secret. The former first-round pick in 2015 has been a flop and had just 24 catches (47 targets) for 309 yards and one touchdown in 11 games in 2018. He has just two scores the last two years and has never played a full season in the NFL. Amendola was much more reliable for a stagnant Miami offense and had 59 receptions for 575 yards and a touchdown in 15 games in his first season in Miami. He's getting long in the tooth, though, and isn't a lock to find a prominent role on the open market.
