Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs BUF (7 / 4 / 43 / 1 rec)
Just like the rest of the receivers, Parker has had an up and down season. He will explode for a game and then disappear for a few weeks. The relationship with the team seems to have gotten better, but he has not lived up to the first-round draft pick. Parker opened the scoring on the first drive with an 18-yard touchdown. It was a perfect throw right down the middle of the field and in front of the safety. Parker took a hit when he caught the ball but was able to hold on for the score. The Patriots will be a tougher test next week and Parker will need to play much better for any chance of a win.
2018 Week 12 vs IND (3 / 3 / 10 / 0 rec)
After working his way back to relevance in recent weeks, Parker has disappeared for the Dolphins. He caught all 3 of his targets this week but could not do anything with them. He had better chemistry with Brock Osweiler and looks to be expendable once again now that Tannehill is back. Parker's tenure in Miami could be over in the offseason.
2018 Week 10 vs GB (11 / 5 / 43 / 0 rec)
It seems that we have come a long way from the trade rumors and from Parker being a healthy inactive earlier in the season. He saw a team high 11 targets this week, but only managed to pull in 5 of them. The Dolphins are a team full of slot receivers and Parker is the only real outside threat. He is going to draw the top coverage from the opposing team and that is going to make it difficult to operate. His longest catch of the game was 14 yards this week and he failed to break 50 yards, even with 5 receptions. It was a little surprising to see him still in a Dolphin's uniform after the trade deadline, but he did not have much value at the time. Parker is going to need to string together some good games to close out the season if he ever wants to live up to his draft position. His recent uptick in usage is a good start, but he is going to need to find the end zone and help this struggling Dolphins offense more. The shoulder injury that forced him out of the game has him questionable, but with a full 2 weeks to rest with the Bye he should be good to go against the Bills in week 12.
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.
