|The hype machine that is the Miami Dolphins beat writer arena of the Twitterverse created a monster last season that burned fantasy owners that drank the kool-aide on DeVante Parker. At 6'3", 210-pounds, the former first-round selection from Louisville has the size and talent to be a stud wide receiver in the NFL, and nearly everyone pegged Parker as a breakout candidate as a third-year wide receiver last season.
Instead of breaking out, Parker delivered his worst season as a pro, setting career lows in catch percentage, touchdowns, and yards per reception, to go along with a putrid 5.6 FPts/G average. As a player drafted before the seventh round in most drafts last season, Parker didn't live up to the hype and proved to be a title-killing mistake for those poor souls who drafted him in the middle rounds.
Now that Jarvis Landry signed a lucrative free-agent deal to join the Browns, the hype train on Parker is once again starting to build up steam. With Landry's 161 targets from the previous season up for grabs and the oft-injured Danny Amendola likely to take only a fraction, Parker could be primed for that breakout season that did not materialize in 2017. The most positive aspect of Parker in 2018 is that investing in the former first-round pick will not cost quite as much draft capital as last season, making Parker worth the gamble by owners looking for an upside pick in the ninth or tenth round of 12-team leagues.
| Kenny Stills returns to practice|

|Kenny Stills is trying to convince coaches he'll be ready on Sunday, per Adam Gase.
Risk is groin could get tweaked and then he's out longer.|
FFToday's Take: Stills missed Week 8 with a groin injury and although he made it back to practice today, it doesn't sound like he's out of the woods yet. We'll get a better handle on his availability after practice on Thursday. His return would throw a bit of cold water on DeVante Parker's outlook.

FFToday's Take: Wilson injured his hip last week and will be forced to miss at least 8 games, meaning his fantasy season is over. In his absence the Dolphins are basically forced to let DeVante Parker see the field along with Danny Amdendola and Jakeem Grant. Kenny Stills (groin) will miss Week 8.
