Week 3: at New York Jets
FBG says: Good matchup. Jay Cutler was uncharacteristically conservative in his Dolphins debut. Ever the gunslinger, Cutler focused his attention on quick underneath throws to Jarvis Landry to counteract a fiery Chargers pass rush. Landry won't see 15 targets every week, but it's clear he's on Cutler's page and an integral part of the offense as a kind of extension of the running game. Going forward, though, we should probably expect a gradual effort to push the ball downfield more. He took an interest in DeVante Parker during the preseason, and it carried over into the opener with 9 targets, including a pair of 31-yard completions. They failed to connect on their other four deep-ball attempts; this should be viewed as a boom-or-bust connection for the time being, but one with strong weekly upside. Like the rest of the Jets' units, this one is rebuilding and poses little threat to opposing offenses. The coverage has been atrocious thus far, and starting cornerbacks Juston Burris and Buster Skrine took turns being burned for touchdowns by Michael Crabtree (three in all) in Week 2. Rookie safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye are intriguing prospects, but neither is ready to anchor a pass defense in coverage. And as the Jets continue to rebuild this unit, we see how imperative it is they add some explosive element to their pass rush. Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams are talented pocket-pushers, but there's virtually no dynamism coming off the edges. Recent third-round pick Jordan Jenkins has yet to make noise, while Kony Ealy was a low-floor flyer who's contributed little thus far and Josh Martin is a miscast special-teamer. It's difficult to slow down opposing passing games without pressure or coverage chops, so this is a great defense to target for efficient fantasy production.

2017 Week 2 vs LAC (9 / 4 / 85 / 0 rec)
On the surface, Parker catching only four of his nine targets for 85 yards may not sound like an impressive day, but there was a lot to be excited about. For starters, Parker was targeted deep down the field on five of his nine targets, and managed to have two separate 30+ yard catches. On his first 31 yard catch, Parker improvised a short in-route, taking off down the middle of the field as Cutler was forced to roll out of the pocket. Cutler led Parker just out in front of him and Parker made a great over the shoulder catch that showcased his ability to make the tough grab. On his second 31 yard catch, Parker ran a straight go-route and despite being tightly covered, Cutler threw the ball up and gave Parker the opportunity to make a play. That is exactly what Parker did, elevating above his defender and snatching the ball directly from his outstretched defender. It was the type of play that will give Cutler the confidence to continue throwing the ball deep down the field to Parker, even when he is covered.

Our View: Parker has a great matchup against the Jets poor defense and should be in your lineup despite the questionable tag.
link to story Dolphins | DeVante Parker should be in uniform (Thu Sep 21, 02:05 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) likely will be active for the team's Week 3 game even though he is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 21, according to a source. Our View: Parker and Jay Cutler have nearly hooked up deep a few times, and the Jets secondary is asking for that to change this week. Parker should have a field day against this secondary, and will be a high end WR2 play with upside.
link to story Dolphins | No practice for DeVante Parker (Thu Sep 21, 01:20 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 21. Our View: If Parker plays—and we do expect him to—he should tear up the overmatched corners the Jets bring to bear. Quarterback Jay Cutler has tried to hit Parker on some deep balls and one is going to hit at some point. It stands to reason that Sunday, against a bad defensive secondary, could be the time.
