News: 21 hours agoParker (knee) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate.
Spin: Parker led the Patriots in targets (nine) and receiving yards (64) in this past Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers, but he's nursing a knee injury in the aftermath of that strong performance. Fellow wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) also was listed as limited on Monday's estimate, while Demario Douglas (concussion) was a non-participant. With Douglas potentially unable to suit up Thursday in Pittsburgh, Parker could remain the team's top wide receiver if he's able to shed this knee injury.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Parker is back with the Patriots after joining the team last offseason. The veteran receiver failed to make much of an impact in 2022, converting 13 appearances into two top-30 fantasy outings (one of which came in Week 18). Believe it or not, the 2015 first-round pick has finished one of his eight NFL seasons better than 40th among WRs in fantasy points (11th in 2019). Parker is now 30 years old and a long shot for fantasy relevance with JuJu Smith-Schuster added to a WR room the also includes ascending second-year receiver Tyquan Thornton. Parker is well off the fantasy radar.
