Game day update: The Broncos listed cornerback Bryce Callahan and defensive lineman DeShawn Williams as questionable on their final injury report. Grant led the Dolphins in fantasy points last week, but Parker remains the No. 1 guy. In PPR leagues, ESPN projects Parker with 13.7 points and Grant with 9.9 points.
While there’s a lot to be thankful for when it comes to rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Miami Dolphins wide receivers are going to struggle to put up fantasy football stats while the team uses a conservative offensive approach to ease their new franchise QB into the NFL.
Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker, Jakeem Grant
Parker has still been the most targeted of these two receivers, getting seven last week and the week before that. However, he caught just two of those passes last week for a total of 31 yards. Grant was targeted five times, catching four of those for 43 yards and a touchdown.
The Dolphins face the Broncos this week. Denver has been burned by some high-flying pass attacks, but their vulnerability to the run, suggests that the Dolphins can stay with their current game plan of limiting Tagovailoa’s exposure. The target share makes Parker a low end WR3. While Grant is likely to see some work, it’s hard to know how much.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Parker at WR3. Sit Jakeem Grant.
