Injury Shoulder - AC Joint
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 14th overall pick in 2015, Parker has shown flashes of his dynamic abilities, but hasn't produced except in short stretches. This season - one in which the Dolphins are without former top target Jarvis Landry - seems like it's make or break for Parker, who should be the team's No. 1 wideout. At 6-3, 212, and with 4.45 speed, Parker has the top-shelf physical tools to get down the field (four catches of 40-plus yards on 87 targets in 2016) and the size to operate in the red zone. But he scored only once on 96 targets last year and didn't have a single 40-yard catch. Part of it might have been due to a lingering ankle injury that cost him three games, and perhaps he never entirely clicked with quarterback Jay Cutler. At press time, Parker is healthy, and Ryan Tannehill, with whom he has a decent rapport, should be back under center. With Landry's 161 targets gone, Parker's main competition for market share will be speedster Kenny Stills and newly acquired Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola. In short, Parker should get a massive opportunity, but it remains to be seen if he can finally stay healthy and deliver on his first-round pedigree. Read Past Outlooks

Shoulder injury not season-ending

Shoulder - AC Joint
November 12, 2018
Parker likely will miss a few weeks, but the AC joint sprain in his left shoulder isn't expected to be season-ending, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Forced from Sunday's eventual loss in Green Bay with a shoulder injury, Parker later left the locker room with his left arm in a sling. Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reported Parker will avoid surgery, but it appears the wideout will be sidelined beyond the Dolphins' next game Nov. 25 at Indianapolis following a Week 11 bye. In the meantime, Parker's increased workload of late (22 targets over the last three contests) will be available to the likes of Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Leonte Carroo and Jakeem Grant (leg).

2015
The 14th overall pick in 2015, Parker has shown flashes of brilliance, but nagging injuries, inconsistent play and the emergence of Kenny Stills as a viable deep threat have cut into his overall production. At 6-3, 212, with 4.45 40 speed, Parker is a prototypical NFL No. 1 WR, able to strike down the field or operate near the goal line. Parker had four catches of 40-plus yards on only 87 targets and managed a respectable 8.6 YPT. The Dolphins only threw to him nine times in the red zone, however. This year, Parker enters training camp with a clean bill of health, but heavily used Jarvis Landry is still around, and Stills signed a four-year deal this offseason. Even so, Parker is the most talented of the three, and in May OC Clyde Christensen praised his offseason work habits and predicted a "gigantic year" for his third-year wideout. While positive "coach-speak" should often be ignored, it's worth noting the team laid into Parker last summer when he was slowed by a hamstring injury, implying the ailment was due to a lack of conditioning, i.e., the coaches haven't exactly been in the habit of pumping Parker up. Of course, for Parker to have a big season, he'll need competent quarterback play from Jay Cutler, who struggled in five games for Chicago last season.
Last year's 14th overall pick started slowly after foot surgery in June, but he finished the year strong with at least 80 yards in four of the season's final six games. At 6-foot-3, 209 pounds with 4.45 40 speed, Parker's a prototypical No.1 receiver and a good candidate to break out in his second season. The problem is the Dolphins for some reason love to target small, slow, inefficient Jarvis Landry (166 targets, 7.0 YPT) -- even during Parker's strong final six games, Landry out-targeted him 71 to 42. The other issue is quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has shown only modest improvement 64 games into his pro career. But Tannehill hasn't had a dynamic target like Parker before, so it's possible the entire offense will open up this season. Also in Parker's favor is a lack of receiving depth —the erratic Kenny Stills is the team's No. 3, and Jordan Cameron, when healthy, is a quality pass-catching tight end, but Rishard Matthews and Lamar Miller (118 combined targets) are gone, and a good portion of their opportunities likely will go to Parker. Third-round rookie Leonte Carroo could be involved, but he's more likely to cut into Stills' role than Parker's. Finally, new head coach Adam Gase brings a credible offensive mind to the team after years in the wilderness with Joe Philbin and Dan Campbell. The entire passing game could see a boost as a result.
Drafted 14th overall by the Dolphins, Parker might be the happy medium between Amari Cooper's sustained college success and Kevin White's superior athleticism. At 6-3, 209, and running a 4.45 40, Parker's more than fast enough to get down the field, and he's big enough to operate in the red zone. He also had four productive years at Louisville, catching 33 touchdowns in 43 games. But Parker had foot surgery in early June, and it is uncertain if he will be ready for the regular season. When he does return, he will face a suddenly crowded Dolphins receiving corps; in addition to second-year man Jarvis Landry and recently signed veterans Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings, tight end Jordan Cameron (when healthy) is one of the best pass catchers in the league at his position.
