“Everything is perfect” with DeVante Parker’s recovery http://t.co/I8CtRF3wvA

DeVante Parker underwent foot surgery on June 5th to replace a screw in his foot from a previous surgery. At the time, a majority of media outlets were saying that Parker would be ready for the start of Week 1. It appears the same sentiment still holds. Currently he’s the No. 4 WR on the roster behind Kenny Stills, Jarvis Landry, and Greg Jennings.
I found it interesting that Parker is being selected around the same ADP as Stills and has even crept ahead of him. I would prefer Stills between the two WRs; drafting rookie WRs can be a dangerous game sometimes. Dr. Jeff Budoff goes in depth on DeVante Parker’s surgery and Fantasy Douche wonders what his injury means for his fantasy value.
“He’s not only taken a tremendous leadership role in the group, really setting the example of how you do things, he’s expanded his route inventory,” wide receivers coach Derek Dooley said last month, via ESPNDallas.com. “He’s played X. He’s played Z. He’s played in the slot and every day he went out there and was the same player. Every route, every opportunity he had he took advantage of it. So he’s made a big jump this offseason.”
I think Terrance Williams could make for an intriguing late-round1 pick this season With no DeMarco Murray, I’d be shocked if they had the same volume in their running game and with the possibility of Dez missing some time, the third-year Williams would slide right into the No. 1 role among the Dallas WRs making him a great value at his current ADP. It’s likely that one of Terrence Williams or Cole Beasley will emerge as a valuable fantasy asset this year. Williams would need a lot fewer targets to become valuable than Beasley would.
