Sat, 12 Sep 2015 07:02:34 -0700
New York Giants WR Preston Parker is expected to be used as the slot receiver against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 because of WR Victor Cruz's (calf) injury.
Fantasy Tip: Parker ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) received limited playing time last season but should be more involved in the passing game in Week 1. Parker probably will not be a great option on FantasyScore, and owners should be able to find better options to use.

New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris is expected to be the team's No. 4 wide receiver, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com. WRs Corey Washington, Preston Parker, Marcus Harris and Julian Talley will also be in the mix. Graziano added that if Parker makes the final roster, he could be the No. 4 wide receiver.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:34:52 -0700
New York Giants WR Preston Parker has worked in the slot, and he could see time in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the start of the regular season. WRs Dwayne Harris and Kevin Ogletree are also battling for the possible opening.
Fantasy Tip: Parker has been around, and he is reportedly well liked by the coaching staff. If he is able to secure a job he would be worth a look as a WR4 or flex play in standard fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but we have a while until this battle plays out.
Mon, 23 Feb 2015 10:17:09 -0800
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle appears to have the commitment from the team heading into next season after being benched twice in 2014. However, general manager Jerry Reese left open the possibility that the team could draft another receiver this year. "I think Rueben gets banged on a lot. Sometimes he should get banged on, but I think he gets banged on sometimes a little too much," Reese said. "I think he is a good, young player and all he needs are some chances. With Odell and Victor, I think he will get plenty of chances." WRs Preston Parker, Corey Washington or Marcus Harris could be backup plans if Randle doesn't pan out.
Fantasy Tip: Randle will have his work cut out for him in retaining the No. 3 receiving job behind Victor Cruz and rookie sensation Odell Beckham Jr. Keep an eye on Randle's health and progress in training camp. If he sticks in the No. 3 spot, he could be a solid option as a WR4 or 5 to round out your receiving depth.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. ($10,000), DT Cullen Jenkins ($16,000), WR Preston Parker ($15,000), DE Damontre Moore ($15,000), LS Zak DeOssie ($8,200) and PK Josh Brown ($8,200) were fined for their role in a scuffle with the St. Louis Rams in Week 16.
Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:00:31 -0800

DT Cullen Jenkins (calf), LB Jameel McClain (knee) and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back, shoulder) all were limited in practice and are probable. WR Preston Parker (knee) fully practiced and is probable.
Thu, 04 Dec 2014 12:17:55 -0800
New York Giants WR Preston Parker (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Tue, 04 Nov 2014 11:22:24 -0800
New York Giants WR Preston Parker (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the team's Week 9 game, but head coach Tom Coughlin did not sound very concerned about it.
Tue, 04 Nov 2014 10:05:05 -0800

New York Giants WR Preston Parker took almost all of his snaps as the slot receiver in Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, while WR Odell Beckham Jr. was sprinkled in at the spot for a few plays.
Tue, 14 Oct 2014 10:07:20 -0700
New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. are acceptable options to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee), according to head coach Tom Coughlin, with WR Preston Parker in the slot position. The Giants are content in not trading for another receiver from outside the organization. The only other healthy receiver on the current roster is WR Corey Washington.
Fantasy Tip: Randle, Beckham and Parker will see increased opportunities in the offense moving forward with Cruz out for the season. That'll boost their values, but there could be growing pains with these young receivers as they're given more attention from opponents.
Mon, 13 Oct 2014 13:06:08 -0700
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. could move to the slot with WR Victor Cruz (knee) out for the season, but Beckham has never played the position. WR Preston Parker filled in in the slot in Week 6 when Cruz was injured, and he can play on the outside, too. WR Corey Washington has worked exclusively on the outside and could see some more opportunities in the offense with Cruz out.
Fantasy Tip: After a fine season debut in Week 5, Beckham had just two catches (four targets) for 28 yards in the Week 6 loss. He'll have his ups and downs, especially if he moves to the slot to learn a new position. All of the Giants receivers will see a boost in value with Cruz out, and Parker is worth a look on the waiver wire in deeper leagues.
Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:03:18 -0700
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) was eased back in his regular season debut in Week 5, coming off the bench behind WR Preston Parker. However, he played a major role as the No. 3 receiver in the second half, and he posted his first touchdown. He played 35 of 68 snaps (51.5 percent), and that role is expected to grow moving forward.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham was a great daily fantasy value last weekend, and he will be solid mid-level daily option going forward in the No. 3 receiver role.
Fri, 10 Oct 2014 13:41:24 -0700
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. played 35 of 68 offensive snaps in his NFL debut in Week 5, and that figure is expected to increase moving forward. He sat behind WR Preston Parker in the first half against the Atlanta Falcons, but then played a huge role as the No. 3 receiver in the second half with the team trailing. Beckham showed great athleticism and scored a touchdown in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham's ceiling is very high for his fantasy owners. His matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night is very enticing, too. Beckham could put up impressive numbers for a second straight week.
Tue, 16 Sep 2014 15:01:40 -0700
New York Giants WR Preston Parker could see more snaps with WR Jerrell Jernigan recently placed on Reserve/Injured. Parker caught one pass for 29 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. WRs Corey Washington and Julian Talley are also candidates for more playing time.

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 01:04:44 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Preston Parker caught a pair of touchdown passes in his team's 17-13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Aug. 9. Parker is trying to earn the No. 3 receiver spot on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Although Parker is competing with rookie WR Kenny Stills for the third spot behind Marques Colston and Lance Moore, QB Drew Brees has proven time and again he will go to players who catch the ball on a regular basis. It will take more than one game to determine who wins this battle, but if Parker does he may be worth stashing as a deep bench option.
Mon, 05 Aug 2013 21:27:29 -0700
New Orleans Saints WRs Saalim Hakim, Preston Parker, Kenny Stills, Andy Tanner and Nick Toon could each see bigger roles following the injury to WR Joe Morgan (knee), who is likely to miss at least a few weeks. However, the team values experience in the top three receiver roles, and it is believed veteran WR Steve Breaston will get a long look as the No. 3 first before any of the younger players.
