Fantasy Football analysis: Patriots WR DeVante Parker

In his final year with the Dolphins in 2021, Parker’s season was hamstrung by various injuries. Appearing in 10 games, he he caught 40 of 73 targets for 515 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers placed him as the 70th ranked fantasy receiver in PPR leagues by the end of the year.

Start or sit in Week 1?

Parker will get an opportunity to immediately go up against his former team on Sunday. He should be a productive piece of the Pats offense but won’t produce enough to warrant a start on your fantasy team. Sit Parker for Week 1.
