Fantasy Impact:

With Matthews out, DeVante Parker becomes a much more attractive play this week as the team's WR2. Landy is probable with a knee issue but should be good to go.

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) missed practice again Friday. It looks like Matthews will miss Week 14. DeVante Parker has surpassed the 80% snaps-played mark in each of the last two weeks and he has two solid outings (4-80-1 versus the Jets and 3-63-1 against the Ravens) to show for it. The Giants are 29th in WR aFPA.

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) missed practice Thursday. It looks like Matthews will miss Week 14. DeVante Parker has surpassed the 80% snaps-played mark in each of the last two weeks and he has two solid outings (4-80-1 versus the Jets and 3-63-1 against the Ravens) to show for it.

The news that came Tuesday of the New York Giants placing tight end Larry Donnell on season-ending injured reserve with a neck injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Donnell has missed the last four games and the injury had appeared to be trending that way for a while. Will Tye will continue to be the Giants top TE target.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning almost always pins the blame for any interception or loss on himself, and you very rarely see him question the play of one of his teammates. After throwing an interception on a target to wide receiver Rueben Randle for a second week in a row, Manning dropped a subtle hint that he was not pleased with Randle's effort on the critical fourth down play late in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 13 loss to the New York Jets.

“It was the play we had run earlier in the year, we’ve had great success with it,” Manning said in his Monday meeting with the media. “They covered it well the way they tried to pass it off, the safety came down, and I would’ve had to work a second window or come back to my back on a route. But they got pressure, and I didn’t have that luxury.

"Still thought I could maybe hit Rueben (Randle) just kind of running by. The defender wasn’t looking at me, he was looking at Rueben. I thought Rueben could run by him and still possibly make the catch or get an interference call. Didn’t work out that way, though.”

Fantasy Impact:

Randle did not run through his route and by the defender. Instead, he stopped his route, and with nowhere to throw the football, Manning forced a pass that was intercepted, the story said. The two weren't on the same page for the longest time early last year, but those issues seemed to go away when the offense started to turn around late last season.

Eli Manning (ankle) says he 'feels good'

Giants HC Tom Coughlin said Manning's mystery X-ray after the game was on his ankle, and the quarterback is fine. A day after, Manning said the ankle "feels good," and he tweaked it in the third quarter. Manning does not expect to miss any practice time.

"I get checked out all the time, bumps and bruises," he said. "You get the doctors on it, get on it early so you heal up quickly. They always take precaution and that's why I got the X-ray, but no issues, and it feels good."

Dolphins unsure if DeVante Parker will remain starter

DeVante Parker scored the team's only offensive touchdown of the game, making a spectacular catch in the end zone. Cornerback Bobby McCain led the team with seven solo tackles, while defensive tackle Jordan Phillips batted a pass and hit the quarterback once.

Surprisingly, though, it's the latter two that will remain starters this week against the New York Giants, with Parker possibly returning to the starting lineup.

“That’s hard to say just because of where Rishard Matthews has been and knowing the production he’s got when he comes back,” head coach Dan Campbell said of Parker remaining a starter, via the Palm Beach Post. “I don’t want to just say yes or no one way or another. I’ll say this: DeVante Parker’s getting better. And with every play he makes it’s going to be harder to get him off the field.”

Fantasy Impact:

If Matthews returns this week it could complicate Parker's fantasy value. As the story said, with the way Parker's played over the past two weeks, it won't be easy to keep him off the field. He's caught two touchdowns in the last two games.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Jets WR Brandon Marshall (toe, ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 13. Marshall was probable with a toe injury last week and racked up 9-131-2 on 11 targets. He now has caught at least one touchdown in four straight games and has nine on the season. Fire him up against the Giants.
