The New England Patriots are fresh off a tough 6-0 loss to the Chargers as they prepare to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday of Week 14. Should you start wide receiver DeVante Parker in fantasy football this week? Let’s take a look.
Fantasy Football analysis: Patriots WR DeVante Parker
DeVante Parker has been the victim of a struggling New England offense this season. No Patriots receiver has surpassed 410 receiving yards yet this season. Even with Kendrick Bourne and Demario Douglas injured, Parker is likely going to be relegated to the fantasy bench this week.
Start or sit in Week 14 PPR leagues?
The Patriots offense is seriously struggling this year, as evidenced by their most recent scoreless loss. Parker has not been a consistent big earner this season, and has hit double digit fantasy points in PPR leagues just twice this year. The Steelers bring a solid defense to the field, as well, which will lessen his chances of making an impact on any fantasy roster this week.
Start or sit in Week 14 standard leagues?
Parker should sit in leagues of any format and any size this week.
Players you would start ahead of DeVante Parker
Go for Cleveland’s Elijah Moore or Houston’s Noah Brown as a starter at FLEX over Parker this week. Green Bay’s Romeo Doubs is another good option if he is available.
