DeVante Parker may miss Week 1 with hamstring injury, fantasy value dwindling

We break down the fantasy impact of DeVante Parker still dealing with a hamstring injury.

DeVante Parker is now in serious jeopardy of missing the Miami Dolphins' opener. Parker did not practice Tuesday after sitting out Monday as well, according to Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero.

This comes after head coach Adam Gase revealed the second-year wide receiver has dealt with injuries to both of his hamstrings this summer. These plagued Parker throughout training camp and the preseason, and it looks like they may keep him sidelined Week 1.

Facing the Seattle Seahawks' defense is already a tall task for Parker and Miami's offense in Week 1. Even if Parker does play, it sounds like this injury will limit his productivity, which should already be limited against Richard Sherman on the boundary.

Fantasy Spin: For all of his talent, Parker is still too unreliable to use as one of your top receivers in fantasy football. He is barely cracking the top 50 WR rankings for Week 1. If Parker does play, he is a WR3 or flex play at Seattle.
