We break down the news that DeVante Parker is still dealing with a concussion. What it means for Week 15 and beyond.

Friday PM Update: Parker did not practice on Friday and has been ruled out for this week’s game. New England also listed teammate Jakobi Meyers as questionable, so quarterback Mac Jones may have to go down the depth chart for help in the passing game.

Thursday Update: Parker didn’t practice on Wednesday and is dealing with a concussion. He wasn’t seen during the stretching portion of practice on Thursday. Parker could still get some work in during practice and be a limited participant, but we won’t know that until the official injury report.

We have made it to Week 15 of the NFL season. The New England Patriots are gearing up to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in an AFC battle. The Patriots have dealt with a number of injuries all season, and that looks to be continuing this week. Wide receiver DeVante Parker is not practicing on Wednesday, and it is likely due to the concussion he sustained last week. Parker took to social media on Tuesday to share his anger with the way the refs handled his injury in the game.

Fantasy football implications for Week 15

Parker has been a consistent contributor to the Patriots' passing attack. He has played in 12 games and has 25 receptions on 40 targets for 460 yards and a touchdown. He has the second-most receiving yards on the team despite having half the receptions of team leader Jakobi Meyers. If Parker is able to progress through the concussion protocol, you could fire him up in deeper PPR leagues. If he is out, the only Patriots WR I’d feel comfortable starting would be Meyers.
