Date:

Giants WR Preston Parker was added to the injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a knee issue.

The Giants' No. 3 receiver should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Corey Washington would see an uptick in snaps if Parker couldn't go versus Tennessee.
Dec 4 - 2:49 PM

Preston Parker caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the 49ers.

Eli Manning targeted Rueben Randle 15 times and Odell Beckham Jr. 13 times. Parker saw two targets as the 49ers plugged up the middle of the field. As expected, Parker's 7-79-1 against the Seahawks last week was a fluke.
Nov 16 - 4:52 PM

Preston Parker caught seven passes for 79 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 loss at Seattle.

The Legion of Boom is most vulnerable in the slot and Preston took advantage of it. One week after a drop-plagued performance, he snatched a 6-yard pass out of the air for a touchdown in the first quarter and then continued to find holes in the zone. Parker has a role in this three-wide base offense, but his floor is very low. He'd be a desperation add at best ahead of Week 11 against the 49ers.
Nov 9 - 8:15 PM

Giants WR Preston Parker suffered an ankle injury in Monday's loss to the Colts.

It was originally deemed a foot issue. His week 10 status is unclear. Parker had a disastrous night as the G-Men's No. 3 receiver before going down, securing just 1-of-6 targets. Rookie Corey Washington was impressive in garbage time in Parker's absence.
Nov 4 - 3:52 PM

Preston Parker caught 1-of-6 targets for seven yards in the Giants' Week 9 loss to the Colts.

It was a disastrous night for Parker. A replacement-level talent thrown into a great role as the No. 3 receiver in a pass-happy West Coast offense, Parker muffed at least three of the passes that came his way Monday night. He then exited late with a foot injury, being replaced in three-wide sets by intriguing 6'4/214 rookie Corey Washington. Parker isn't worth owning in any format.
Nov 4 - 1:17 AM

Preston Parker had two catches for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Parker was the first-team slot receiver in a lot of sets, but he only saw three targets on a day Eli Manning attempted 33 passes. Even deep leaguers can move on as the Giants head into their bye.
Oct 19 - 8:00 PM

Preston Parker and Julian Talley are candidates to fill Victor Cruz's slot role.

Victor Cruz (knee) will be placed on injured reserve shortly, ending his season. It leaves a big hole in a Giants offense that wants to run three-wide sets as their primary formation. Preston Parker is the leading candidate to step is as Talley is on the practice squad, but the Giants should look to involve TE Larry Donnell more as they seek production between the hashes. Parker, a former UDFA who has a 11-158-0 line so far this season, would be a desperation add for deep leaguers.
Oct 13 - 8:37 AM

Giants WR Preston Parker caught 3-of-3 targets for 61 yards in New York's Week 5 win over Atlanta.

He also lost a fumble on a kickoff return. Parker took advantage of a badly blown first-half coverage by Atlanta's laughable defense for a 42-yard bomb, and was otherwise quiet, playing behind impressive rookie Odell Beckham in the second half. Parker has no value in fantasy leagues.
Oct 5 - 4:12 PM

Preston Parker is expected to take over as the Giants' third receiver after Jerrel Jernigan's year-ending foot injury.

The G-Men are turning to journeyman slot-receiver type Parker over UDFA Corey Washington. Parker returns punts, so perhaps he now has some value in return-yardage league. Parker will be the No. 5 option in New York's passing game, behind Larry Donnell, Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, and Rashad Jennings.
Sep 17 - 8:34 PM

Preston Parker caught three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game.

The journeyman wideout/special teamer is now up to seven grabs for 119 yards and a score through three preseason games. Out of the league last season, Parker is in position to earn one of the Giants' final roster spots.
Aug 22 - 11:39 PM

Saints signed WR Preston Parker and DL Jay Richardson to reserve/future contracts.

Parker, who turns 26 next month, caught 40 passes for 554 yards and three touchdowns for the Bucs in 2011, before falling out of favor with new coach Greg Schiano this past season. Richardson is a defensive end/tackle 'tweener.

Bucs released WR Preston Parker.

At final cuts, Parker was given the nod over Tiquan Underwood. A few weeks later, the two are swapping spots. Parker had no catches on two targets through the first two games and struggled to field punts cleanly.

Preston Parker (foot) is practicing in full this week.

Parker's status was thought to be in doubt after the Bucs re-signed Jordan Shipley, but it turned out to be Sammie Stroughter (foot) who could miss a good chunk of time. Although he's supposedly the Bucs' top slot receiver, Parker is off the radar in PPR leagues.
Wed, Sep 19, 2012 06:40:00 PM

Bucs WR Preston Parker sustained a foot injury during the Week 2 loss to the Giants.

Parker is theoretically the Bucs' top slot receiver, but he has zero catches on two targets through two games. Jordan Shipley was re-signed Tuesday, hinting that Parker could be sidelined for a bit.
