The Miami Dolphins suffered several injuries in Week 14, but they head into Week 15 against the New York Giants with nobody on their final injury report. Most notably, this means wide receivers DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson, and Allen Hurns are all off the list after dealing with various issues in practice.

Hurns has ankle and knee issues and was a DNP on Wednesday. He improved to full participation on Thursday and Friday. Parker and Wilson both suffered concussions last week. Both were limited on Wednesday and Thursday, but progressed through the concussion protocol and were full participants on Friday.

Fantasy football analysis: Dolphins wide receivers

Hurns and Isaiah Ford led the Dolphins receiving after Parker and Wilson were knocked out after 18 and 17 snaps, respectively. With all healthy, Parker and Wilson return to the starting lineup. Parker is the clear No. 1 in a resurgent season. It’s been so good, it netted him a four year contract extension. Against a bad Giants defense that has given up the fifth most fantasy points to wide receivers, Parker is a strong start.

Wilson and Hurns are less certain options. They rotate as Ryan Fitzpatrick’s next option among receivers. Hurns is a deeper league PPR option, while Wilson should generally be avoided outside of insanely deep leagues.

Start/Sit Recommendation

Parker: Start in all formats
Hurns: Sit in most, but start in deeper PPR
Wilson: Sit in all formats
