Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick might be shorthanded at receiver in Week 15 when the Dolphins face the New York Jets. Head coach Brian Flores told the media on Thursday that wide receivers DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson are “still in the concussion protocol and likely will be until the end of the week,” according to beat writer Cameron Wolfe. Flores said he hopes to have them on Sunday but “he’s preparing for the worst.”

Fantasy football analysis: Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson

Allen Hurns, Isaiah Ford, and Mack Hollins will all get extra work if Parker and/or Wilson don’t play, but none is worth starting outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues. Parker has broken out with a career year and has been the only receiver worth starting in most fantasy formats. Wilson has had some PPR value, but even that has been limited.

If Parker plays, he is a must start against a bad Jets secondary. Wilson is worth some consideration in PPR leagues.
