Surgery for Dolphins WR DeVante Parker-- Fri Jun 5 10:27 am --
Left foot injury puts rookie on the back burner
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker had left foot surgery this morning at Doctor's Hospital in Coral Gables.
He will not participate in the team's minicamp and will miss the start of training camp but will be ready for the start of the regular season, per a team source.
FF Today's Take:Parker's fantasy prospects for 2015 have taken a big hit. How much he's able to participate in camp will be key as it's typically difficult for rookie receivers to make a significant impact, especially when the position group is stacked like it is in Miami. Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and veteran Greg Jennings sit atop the depth chart. Parker is off the re-draft league board for now.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Greg Jennings will sign a two-year, $8 million deal with the Dolphins, according to a source informed of the deal.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:The Dolphins have overhauled their receiving corps, getting rid of Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson while bringing in Kenny Stills, TE Jordan Cameron and now Jennings. Jennings is familiar with head coach Joe Philbin from their time in Green Bay and should serve as the No.3 receiver in the Dolphins offense behind Landry and Stills. He's in the WR4-5 range for redraft leagues.
