What to do with DeVante Parker, Preston Williams in Week 4 fantasy football

Miami did not feature the passing game much in Week 3, but that should change on Sunday.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins opted to rely heavily on their running game in their 31-13 road victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars last Thursday. Obviously when this happens, pass catchers like DeVante Parker and Preston Williams are likely to not be all that productive. However, the two receivers did as much as they could with the limited volume.

Let’s take a look at what may happen for the two pass catchers in Week 4.

Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker, Preston Williams

Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw the ball just 20 times in the victory. Parker tied Myles Gaskin for the most targets with five. Parker took those five catches and went 69 yards. He had been dealing with a hamstring injury and the long week should benefit him moving forward. Williams caught both of his targets and went for seven yards. He added a three-yard touchdown reception to salvage his fantasy day.

Obviously a 20-pass attempt day will not be the norm for any NFL offense in 2020, so Miami should be airing it out more throughout the season, giving more opportunities for Parker and Williams.

The Dolphins will face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4. Seattle is 3-0, but the defense has been very generous to opposing offenses so far this season. The Seahawks are coming off a game in which they allowed 472 passing yards to Dak Prescott. They have allowed an average of 439.7 passing yards to opposing quarterbacks in three games.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Fantasy owners could do worse than Parker as a second wide receiver. Williams should only be used as a flyer in deeper leagues.
