24. WR DeVante Parker (MIA)
Fantasy owners waited years for the DeVante Parker breakout. The former first-round pick was selected by the Dolphins in 2015, and showed flashes of becoming an elite target on the outside. We waited…and waited. Parker found middling success through his first four years in the league as he battled injuries, uneven quarterback play, and an offense that was constantly changing its play caller. In 2019, it finally clicked. With gunslinger Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, Parker had the best year of his career totaling 1,202 yards on 72 receptions.
It looked like Parker had finally turned the corner, and then Tua Tagovailoa came along. The Miami offense saw a dip as the Dolphins toggled between their two quarterbacks throughout the year. Parker struggled throughout the year, and the struggles should continue with Tua back under center in ’21. The former Alabama QB favors receivers who can create space. Parker’s best skill is his ability to make contested catches, but he’s not nearly the speed threat of his new teammates Will Fuller IV and Jaylen Waddle. Add in the fact that Parker has been dealing with injuries all throughout camp, and he seems like an obvious player to fade in drafts.
