1. Devante Parker
9 targets/ 6 receptions/ 61 receiving yards/ 1 touchdown
Parker had the Dolphins only touchdown of the afternoon following a gorgeous over the shoulder catch in the back of the end zone early in the game. However, the game sealing interception for the Broncos came off a Fitzpatrick pass attempt to a double teamed Parker.
Parker has been the Dolphins top target regardless of which quarterback is at the helm. The only issue is that Parker’s volume has gone down since Tagovailoa took over.
Even though Parker has been able to produce, it feels as though he can still take it to another level and this Jets game could be the opportunity.
While Parker isn’t a target hog and possession guy like Keenan Allen, who just posted 16 receptions for 147 yards and a touchdown against these Jets, Parker has the ability to go over the top of defenders and make big plays.
It seems as though Parker and Tagovailoa have been on the same page since the rookie quarterback has taken this team over, but with the defense playing great for most of the season and the run game producing, there hasn’t been a reason for Tagovailoa to throw 40 times a game. Parker and Tagovailoa should be able to abuse the lowly Jets secondary and have a massive game that should spark the Phins offense.
