Gase: 'Hungry' Dolphins WR DeVante Parker should have a 'gigantic year'

Palm Beach Post - [Full Article]

This will be DeVante Parker’s third season since he was a Miami Dolphins‘ first-round draft choice.

And there are strong indications this is the season Parker takes the giant leap forward he’s surely capable of.

“It’d be consistency,” Christensen said. “He’s run fast every day where last year it was kind of up and down. One day you’d think you had a Hall of Famer and the next you weren’t sure if he was going to make it to the game. Just his health and staying consistent. I think his routine and how fast he’s played has been really, really different from last year.”

Head coach Adam Gase says he sees a “hungry” Parker.

Gase has said Parker is “applying himself” and that he has the physical gifts to be a “big play, number one receiver.”

Gase has predicted a “gigantic year” for Parker.

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.”
