News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 12): Parker was getting open deep, but Brock Osweiler couldn't hit him. He also left this game with a shoulder injury that he'll be nursing during the bye. We're going to need to see him on a second team before he has a chance to realize his considerable potential.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 9 vs NYJ (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Coming off his best game of the season, Parker was slated to see an increase in production again this week. However, that is not what happened as the entire offense struggled. Parker hauled in 1 of his 2 targets and did not eclipse 10 total yards. There are too many receivers with similar skill sets for the Dolphins and Parker falls in that category. His big game last week is looking more like an exception rather than the rule.
2018 Week 8 vs HOU (9 / 6 / 134 / 0 rec)
Injuries to the receiving core forced the Dolphins hand this week as Parker was active for only the second game this year. He showed no signs of the broken thumb from training camp and was the most effective receiver this week. He surpassed 100 receiving yards and looked a lot like the receiver they took in the first round in 2015. Parker had a long 46-yard catch and run to help set up a field goal in the second half and benefitted from one of the luckiest plays of the season. Jakeem Grant caught a ball down the sideline and has hit hard by a defender. The ball popped loss and flew another 8-10 yards forward to Parker. It ended up as a big gain for Parker, but it could have very easily have been an incompletion or another interception for Osweiler. He made the best of his return and either cemented a role for the rest of the season or increased his potential trade value.
2018 Week 3 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 40 / 0 rec)
This was the first game of the season where Parker has been active, and he watched as several other receivers were featured in the offense ahead of him. His broken finger did not appear to be an issue this week as he caught 2 of his 3 targets and had a big 36-yard catch deep down the right sideline to help setup an eventual touchdown. Parker outran his corner and the safety was late getting over to provide help. Tannehill laid the ball right over his outside shoulder where only he could make a play on the ball. Two plays later, Jakeem Grant took an end around into the end zone for a touchdown. After a rough camp and a broken finger, Parker looked to be the odd man out in Miami. If the other Dolphins receivers continue to produce, Parker could find himself a trade candidate or at least have a reduced role in the offense going forward.
