2022 Season Outlooks

Parker was traded to New England this offseason, and he could emerge as the No. 1 receiver for Mac Jones this year. Parker is worth drafting as a low-end No. 3 receiver in all leagues with a pick in Round 9 or 10. The Patriots receiving corps features Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor and rookie Tyquan Thornton, and Parker should be a go-to guy for Jones right away. Hopefully, we see Parker return to his 2019 form when he averaged 15.4 PPR points per game. It would even be good if he averaged 11.9 PPR points per game like he did in 2020. Last year, he was at 10.3 PPR points per game, but he should do better than that with his new opportunity in New England.
After 7 years in Miami, Parker will adjust to a new squad in 2022. It’s reasonable to say he’s getting a QB upgrade in Mac Jones. But we simply don’t foresee a major role here, especially for a Pats squad that we know values the run. Parker profiles as a more valuable pick in best ball, where you don’t have to worry about when his big games arrive.
Parker was traded to New England after spending his first seven seasons in Miami. He hasn't quite lived up to expectations since being selected in the first round back in 2015, having managed to finish just one season better than 40th in fantasy points (11th in 2019). Durability has been the main issue, as he appeared in 100% of Miami's regular-season games in only one of his seven campaigns there. That includes seven missed games in 2021. Parker was a top-35 fantasy WR during 10 active weeks last season and could emerge as Mac Jones' top perimeter/vertical target, but his age (29) and durability woes are obvious concerns. He's fine for your bench, but expect inconsistent production.
With nobody in front of him in the pecking order, DeVante Parker should be in line for most of the targets in New England but Mac Jones was inconsistent last season when going deep, and the Patriots run the ball a lot. Parker can stretch the field, but how much opportunity he will get to do so effectively is a big problem. He also seemed to regress as a receiver a little last year. All of that indicates that while he has some upside, he's really a Fantasy receiver who you stash on your bench in case, but not someone you rely on.
