News: 1 day agoParker (shoulder/hamstring) won't play in Sunday's game against the Jaguars in London, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Spin: With Parker ruled out, Preston Williams (groin, questionable) could see added looks Week 6, assuming he's active, while the top healthy guys -- WR Jaylen Waddle, TE Mike Gesicki and RB Myles Gaskin -- all should continue to see their share of targets Sunday from expected starting QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs).
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Following a breakout 2019 campaign in which he posted a 72-1,202-9 receiving line en route to a WR11 fantasy campaign, Parker crashed back to earth in 2020. He missed two games, was held to a 63-793-4 line and finished 40th in fantasy points. He has now missed at least one game (13 total) and finished 40th or worse in fantasy points in five of his six seasons. Parker will have more competition for targets this season after Miami signed Will Fuller V and drafted Jaylen Waddle, and the team's QB situation is a question mark with unproven Tua Tagovailoa under center. The 28-year-old Parker will still play a sizable role, but there's enough risk here that he's best-valued as a flex option.
