New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker led the team in receiving in last week’s victory, and he will get a matchup against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football in Week 7. If you are considering using him in your fantasy football lineup, here’s a look at what to think about as you make a decision.
