Game status: DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant are INACTIVE for Week 15.

Inactives update: Ian Rapoport is reporting the Dolphins will be without both DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant, along with Mike Gesicki.

Game day update: DeVante Parker is “hopeful” he can play today, while Jakeem Grant is expected to be inactive, per Tom Pelissero.

The Miami Dolphins listed both of their top two wide receivers as questionable on this week’s official injury report. DeVante Parker is still dealing with the hamstring injury that forced him out of last week’s game. However, he was able to practice this week, getting in limited sessions each day. Jakeem Grant is also dealing with a hamstring injury, and like Parker, he was able to practice this week as a limited participant.

Parker left last week’s game before he could make a single catch; he was targeted twice. The week before that he had 35 yards on four grabs. He’s Miami’s No. 1 wideout, but with the team running such a conservative offense with rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa under center, he’s capped off as a WR2 in fantasy football. Grant is usually getting four or five targets a week, which makes him a decent bet for 40 or 50 yards, but that’s kind of his ceiling as well. The Dolphins take on the Patriots this week.
