We've heard time and time again that Parker is going to have a breakout year, but it's hard to do that when he's not on the field. The Dolphins aren't committing to him this week yet, but the wideout is progressing.

Obviously, catching is a pretty huge part of being a wide receiver, so the more comfortable he looks, the better.
The Dolphins are in no rush to bring back Parker because, frankly, they haven't needed him in order to win. With Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant, and Danny Amendola serving as the top weapons for Ryan Tannehill, there's no driving need to have an even-more crowded receiving corps.
Parker is out to prove that he certainly is needed in this offense, and making sure he's healthy is the first step in that direction.

With only eight touchdowns and 139 catches over his first three seasons, you'll have to see something from Parker before you have enough faith to put him in your fantasy lineup.
