The New England Patriots will take on the Buffalo Bills in the final week of the regular season. Heading into the game, the Patriots are clinging to the No. 7 seed in the AFC playoff bracket. The Patriots are used to having a jam-packed injury report, and it continues to be loaded this week. Wide receiver DeVante Parker has missed the team’s last three games dealing with a concussion.
DeVante Parker injury updates
Friday, Jan. 6 update — Parker is off the injury report Friday and has been cleared to play in Sunday’s game.
Thursday, Jan. 5 update — Parker logged another limited practice on Thursday.
Wednesday, Jan. 4 update — Parker returned to practice on Wednesday and logged a limited participation.
Fantasy football advice
Parker has played in 12 games this season. He has 25 receptions on 40 targets for 460 yards and a touchdown. Prior to his injury, Parker was trending in the right direction in the offense. He was carving out a target share for himself but then was sidelined. The New England offense tends to be more run-heavy, so it is harder to really lock down and figure out who you can trust in the offense when it comes to pass-catchers. If you do have any lingering fantasy football lineups, no need to start Parker this week.
