Cutler: WR DeVante Parker is a 'faster Alshon Jeffery'

Miami Herlad - [Full Article]

Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery were a dynamic duo in Chicago. Jeffery had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Bears, including a career-high 1,421 yards in 2013. Cutler was his quarterback. And Cutler thinks he might have found a similar — if not better — target in Miami.

“I think he's kind of a faster Alshon, a little bit,” Cutler said. “He's got a lot of range. Back-shoulder, over the top. He's got great hands. And he can burn you up if you get [stuck] flat-footed.”

Fantasy Impact: 

In 15 games, Parker was the #50 WR last season, catching 56 passes for 744 yards and four touchdowns on 88 targets. He was on the injury report for six of those games (3.3-39-0.33, 9.2 PPG in PPR formats) and healthy for nine (4.0-57-0.20, 11.0 PPG). Those "healthy" PPG numbers are about what Anquan Boldin scored as 2016's #41 fantasy receiver. If he can stay healthy, he should provide WR3 numbers, but that’s a big “if.” For what it’s worth, he has drawn rave reviews for his work this offseason.
