Week 3: at Dallas Cowboys

All WR vs DAL

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Dolphins offense was shut out last week as their struggles continued in all facets of the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for three interceptions and just 89 yards before being benched in favor of allowing Josh Rosen some playing time. Rosen also threw an interception while completing just 39 percent of his pass attempts. Both quarterbacks were pressured heavily as the Dolphins offensive line has been terrible, ranking firmly at the bottom of the league according to Matt Bitonti of Footballguys. Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starter for Week 3, but this situation is fluid and could change mid-game. Rookie receiver Preston Williams has been a bright spot for Miami's offense as he has performed relatively well, all things considered. DeVante Parker, on the other hand, was targeted a team-leading seven times last week and failed to catch a single pass as he continues to disappoint. The Cowboys should have a clear advantage against a struggling Dolphins offense this week. The Miami offensive line will struggle against what has been a mediocre Cowboys defensive line. Both Demarcus Lawrence and Meliek Collins have had great starts to the season, but the rest of this unit has not impressed in the pass-rushing department. The return of edge rusher Robert Quinn from suspension will provide a much-needed boost to this Cowboys pass rush that has notched just two sacks to start the season. The secondary for Dallas looked decent, but they have yet to face what anyone would label as stiff competition with only Eli Manning and Case Keenum on their resume. This secondary did suffer a big loss from last week, however, as strong safety Xavier Woods injured his hamstring and is expected to miss multiple weeks. The talent behind Woods is thin, so safety now becomes a key weakness for this untested Dallas secondary. Even with that loss, however, the Cowboys will still have the advantage this week against the struggling Dolphins offense.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs NE (7 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

It was not a good day for Parker against the Patriots. He had 7 targets come his way but did not come down with a single one of them. Parker was blanketed in coverage all game long and could not seem to break free. Fitzpatrick and Rosen were under duress the entire game and had to deal with a collapsing pocket and limited time to throw the ball. Parker is the top option at receiver for Miami right now but he will need a quarterback to throw him the ball.

2019 Week 1 vs BAL (7 / 3 / 75 / 0 rec)

It has been an interesting turn for Parker. He went from being the odd receiver out on the depth chart and the guy the team really wanted to trade, to the top performer on a very bad team this week. Parker was targeted a team high 7 times this week and managed to bring in 3 passes. The big play was a 49-yard homerun down the middle of the field from Fitzpatrick, and he also added a 14-yard catch and run down the left sideline on the Dolphins lone touchdown drive. There will be plenty of completion for catches with Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant, and Albert Wilson all fighting for playing time, but this is the final season for Parker to prove he is a capable NFL receiver. Look for him to finish the season at or near the top of most receiving categories for a very bad Dolphins team this year.
