Well… it finally happened. DeVante Parker played all 16 games. And he dominated like the guy we saw at Louisville years ago.
Parker’s 128 targets, 72 catches, 1,202 yards and 9 TDs blew away previous career highs. Awesome, right? There’s just no question he got there with help from a key injury.
Rookie Preston Williams was emerging as a go-to option. From Weeks 1-8, he tallied 32-428-3 on 60 targets. Then in his final game — Week 8 — he suffered a torn ACL.
Check out these per game splits from Parker with and without Williams:
With: 5.75 targets, 3 catches, 42.8 yards, .37 TDs
Without: 11.25 targets, 6.75 catches, 114.75 yards, .75 TDs
Essentially, Parker was a WR4 with Williams; a dynamic WR1 without him. Parker reached 10 targets 6 times and 100 yards 4 times with his teammate sidelined.
It’s also worth noting that Josh Rosen entered the lineup for 3 games with a healthy Williams. His play blatantly fell short of…
