  • DeVante Parker Catches Just One Pass In 2023 Finale

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker caught just one of four targets for six yards during Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. His offensive struggles were the product of steady snow and wind that impacted the unit as a whole. Parker finishes the 2023 campaign with 33 catches, 394 receiving yards, and zero touchdowns. The veteran is under contract with New England for next season, but they could choose to move on from him if the coaching staff or front office endure sweeping changes.

  • Tyquan Thornton Out, DeVante Parker Active

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton (ankle) has officially been ruled out for the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the New York Jets, while receivers DeVante Parker (ribs) and Matthew Slater (hamstring) will play. All three receivers were listed as questionable coming into this one. Thornton finishes his second season in the NFL with just 13 receptions for 91 yards and no touchdowns on 23 targets over nine games played. The 23-year-old second-rounder has been a bust so far, but New England's poor quarterback situation hasn't helped his development. Parker and rookie Demario Douglas should be New England's top targets to close out the year, but the matchup against a strong Jets secondary isn't the greatest for fantasy managers in single-year leagues and DFS contests.

  • DeVante Parker Tagged As Questionable For Week 18

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker (ribs) is listed as questionable for the upcoming Week 18 matchup against the New York Jets. The veteran wideout was limited throughout practice this week. It's looking like Parker could be a legitimate game-time decision for this weekend. If active, Parker doesn't offer much upside as he posted a disappointing season in 2023. At this point, there isn't anyone too reliable on this offense outside of Demario Douglas. The possible absence of Parker could mean increased looks for Douglas this weekend.

  • DeVante Parker Stays Limited Thursday

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers DeVante Parker (ribs) and Matthew Slater (hamstring) had their practice repetitions limited for the second straight day on Thursday. Parker only played 15 offensive snaps and caught one pass for 15 yards before getting hurt in the Week 17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but Parker could end up questionable for Sunday's Week 18 regular season finale against the New York Jets. The 30-year-old doesn't have a great matchup in a meaningless game in an offense that leaves a lot to be desired. Parker's matchup isn't great on top of it. He had two catches for 19 yards in the previous meeting with the Jets in Week 3 and should be considered a low-cost DFS dart throw, at best. Parker has 388 yards in 12 games and no touchdowns.

  • DeVante Parker Has Reps Capped Wednesday

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers DeVante Parker (ribs) and Matthew Slater (hamstring) were listed as limited participants in Wednesday's practice. Parker injured his ribs late in the Week 17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, but a limited session to begin the week means his injury isn't all that serious. The Patriots and Jets have nothing left to play for but draft positioning this year, but Parker figures to suit up this weekend unless he has a setback on Thursday or Friday. The 30-year-old former first-rounder was seeing increased involvement in his last four games (16 catches for 215 yards) before going for just one reception for 15 yards in last Sunday's loss to the Bills. Parker is a hard sell for fantasy managers in a shy-away matchup in Week 18, even with JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) on Injured Reserve.

  • DeVante Parker Questionable To Return In Week 17

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker (ribs) exited during the first half of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills and is officially questionable to return. At the time of his departure, he had caught one pass for 15 yards. The veteran wide receiver has emerged as a reliable, physical target in Bailey Zappe's offense, so losing him will be tough for the Patriots as they look to mount a comeback Sunday. Tyquan Thornton, Jalen Reagor, Mike Gesicki, and Pharaoh Brown should earn more snaps in Parker's absence.

  • DeVante Parker Remains In Line For Large Role

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker remains a key part of the passing attack ahead of Sunday's game versus the Buffalo Bills. Parker has played more than 90 percent of offensive snaps in each of his last two games, totaling nine catches and 109 yards during that span. He has carved out a key role alongside Demario Douglas and Hunter Henry (knee), both of whom are also among Bailey Zappe's top targets. Parker ranks as a low-end WR3 or FLEX play in deeper leagues, so while he's not an incredibly trustworthy option for the fantasy football championship, his volume at least warrants some consideration.

  • DeVante Parker Productive In Week 16 Win

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker caught four of five targets for 65 yards during Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos. He and Demario Douglas operated as the team's primary wide receivers with JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) sidelined. Parker, who has repeatedly showcased his reliability in contested catch situations, now has nine catches and 109 yards over his last two contests. Although he hasn't scored a touchdown yet this season, the 30-year-old is still a low-end FLEX play in deeper leagues thanks to his high volume and snap shares.

  • DeVante Parker Looking To Remain Productive In Week 16

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker will look to build on last Sunday's solid game when he takes the field versus the Denver Broncos in Week 16. In his return from a one-game absence, Parker impressed versus the Chiefs, catching all five targets for 41 yards while handling an impressive 91 percent snap share. Notably, he out-produced and out-snapped up-and-coming rookie Demario Douglas. There's a real chance that Parker remains the Patriots' No. 1 wide receiver this week, though it's still tough to trust him in fantasy football against a Broncos defense holding opposing wide receiver rooms to just 18.1 points per game (10th-fewest).

  • DeVante Parker Hauls In All Five Targets Sunday

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker caught all five of his targets for 44 yards during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Fueled by an increased snap share with JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) sidelined, Parker led all Patriots wide receivers in targets, yards, and catches in Week 15. He has quietly emerged as a solid option on offense, catching 12 passes for 150 yards over his last three games. The veteran's future fantasy value will depend on Smith-Schuster's status, but there's certainly a chance that he could rank as a WR3/FLEX option in deeper leagues given his newfound volume.

  • DeVante Parker, Tyquan Thornton Suiting Up Versus Chiefs

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers DeVante Parker (knee) and Tyquan Thornton (hamstring) are active for Week 15 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Both players had been listed as questionable but were trending in the right direction ahead of kickoff. Rookie Demario Douglas will operate as Bailey Zappe's top target and is the only Patriots receiver worth starting in fantasy football this week. However, Parker and Thornton are also expected to see increased opportunities with JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) officially inactive.

  • DeVante Parker Expected To Play In Week 15

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) had been listed as questionable but is expected to be active for Week 15 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The veteran is in line to operate as the Patriots' No. 2 wide receiver behind Demario Douglas, especially with JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) looking far less likely to play. It's tough to justify starting Parker in fantasy football given that he ranks as a high-end WR5.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker, Tyquan Thornton All Limited

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle), DeVante Parker (knee), and Tyquan Thornton (hamstring) were all limited in Thursday's practice. Smith-Schuster is dealing with an ankle injury and Parker a knee issue, as both had their reps capped on Wednesday as well. Thornton is a new addition to the injury report, however, due to a hamstring problem and would appear to be in the most danger of the three of missing Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Thornton hasn't reached 20 yards in any of his six contests, though. Smith-Schuster put forth his best game as a Patriot with four catches on six targets for 90 yards against his former Pittsburgh Steelers team in last Thursday's night win but wouldn't rank as greater than a WR4/5 if active in Week 15 against a stout Chiefs defense. Parker would garner similar treatment while logging 2.4 catches for 29.3 yards per game over his nine outings this year.

  • DeVante Parker, JuJu Smith-Schuster Both Questionable

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers DeVante Parker (knee) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) were limited in practice on Wednesday but are questionable to suit up in Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football. Rookies Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) have been ruled out, so the Patriots receiving corps is pretty beat up heading into Week 14 action while coming off a shutout at the hands of the Los Angeles Chargers. If Parker or Smith-Schuster are out or limited, Tyquan Thornton and Jalen Reagor would be asked to take on bigger roles in the passing game. Parker is probably the best option as a deep-league flex if he plays after leading the team in receiving in Week 13.

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers DeVante Parker (knee), JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) and rookie Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) were all listed as limited participants in Tuesday's practice. Parker and Smith-Schuster were also limited on Monday's estimated injury report, but Boutte was a DNP. All three pass-catchers should have a good chance to play on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which is good news with rookie Demario Douglas (concussion) trending towards missing a second straight game. Parker was New England's leading receiver in the Week 13 shutout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but it's hard to recommend any of the team's receivers for starting fantasy lineups, especially in a poor matchup in Week 14 against the Steelers.

  • DeVante Parker, JuJu Smith-Schuster Listed As Limited Monday

    Headshot for DeVante Parker

    New England Patriots wide receivers DeVante Parker (knee) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) were both listed as limited on Monday's estimated practice report. Rookie receivers Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) picked up DNPs, so New England's already thin receiving corps is pretty banged up heading into a Week 14 matchup versus the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. Parker led the Pats in targets (nine) and receiving yards (64) in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, and he should benefit again if he plays this Thursday night and Douglas remains in the league's concussion protocol. If Parker and Smith-Schuster are limited at all or out this week, second-year man Tyquan Thornton would see an even bigger role in the worst offense in the NFL.
