Summary

The Miami Dolphins have said they expect DeVante Parker to have a great year in 2017, but that's what they said prior to the 2016 season as well and it didn't pan out the way everyone had hoped. Parker saw a lot more targets last year (88, which was up from just 50) which translated to 56 receptions and almost double the yards from 2015, but he only broke 100 yards once and there were eight games when he didn't even top 50. If Parker could learn to be more effective, he would find a lot of room to move when Jarvis Landry - and to a lesser extent, Kenny Stills - draws the attention of the defense. One of the ways to do that is to stay healthy. Parker consistently has little, nagging injuries which hold him back. His work ethic has been called into question as well. Both of those things make him a bit risky to count on going into the season, but if he can get them under control he could have the big season people are predicting. (May 22)

Dolphins | DeVante Parker has made adjustments (Mon May 22, 02:29 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is doing the little things to prepare himself for a potential breakout season. According to sources, Parker is taking better care of his body, including eating right -- not skipping meals -- and sleeping well. He's also attacking his workouts and showing a desire to increase his knowledge of the game. Furthermore, Parker's route-running, footwork and consistency have all improved.

Our View: Parker's catches, yards and receiving touchdowns have increased each of his two years in the league...but he hasn't *quite* yet played up to his potential. Perhaps this could be the year. The offseason has been full of positive reports about Parker, so much so that it's not just offseason fluff. He's got a WR4 price tag (WR42, 9.08) but WR2 upside and potential in 12-team PPR leagues. Stay tuned, and keep tabs on his performance during training camp and the preseason.

Dolphins | DeVante Parker looking for big season (Sat May 20, 12:07 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker said he has been working more on his legs this offseason and expects to have a big season in 2017.

Our View: Parker missed some time because of hamstring problems this past season, but the ability to get 1,000 yards receiving is certainly there. Through 15 games last year, Parker amassed 744 yards receiving with four touchdowns. The addition of TE Julius Thomas (a noted TD hog) may not leave too many more red-zone targets for Parker in 2017. He's a WR5-ish for fantasy owners.
