Parker re-signed with the Stampeders on Monday.

With free agency set to kickoff on Tuesday, the Stampeders were able to keep two key receivers off the market, agreeing to deals with both Parker and DeVaris Daniels. During the 2017 campaign, Parker pulled in 36 catches for 482 yards and three touchdowns, placing him fifth on the team in total receiving yards. He'll likely find himself in the receiver rotation once again in 2018.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker logged four receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 29-20 loss to the Eskimos.

Parker drew the start for Markan Michel (undisclosed) and was able to get into the end zone for the first time since Week 15 and the third time this season. The 27-year-old has mainly served in a complementary role throughout the season, but if Michel remains sidelined in Week 20, Parker could well get another run as a starter.

October 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker will start at wideout for Saturday's game against the Eskimos.

With Markan Michel nursing an apparent injury, Parker will step up in his place and start opposite DaVaris Daniels at wide receiver. During 16 games in the slotback position this year, Parker has accumulated 28 recpetions for 402 yards and a pair of scores, and comes into this weekend's game with solid upside potential for Calgary.

October 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker caught three passes for 16 yards in Friday's 30-7 loss to the Roughriders.

Even with Marquay McDaniel (undisclosed) sidelined, Parker wasn't able to contribute much to the Stamps' passing attack. He had his best game of the season against Edmonton, next week's opponent, but that still amounted to only four catches for 62 yards back in Week 12, so don't expect him to suddenly become a dynamic fantasy force.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker rushed twice for 34 yards and also caught an 18-yard touchdown on his only reception in Friday's 59-11 win over the Alouettes.

With Jerome Messam (undisclosed) sidelined, Parker saw multiple carries for only the second time this season, but his bigger impact came through the air. His second-quarter touchdown reception extended the Stampeders' lead to 17-4 at the time and served as his first score since Week 6. Parker's role continues to be a decidedly complementary one, making him a high-variance DFS option each week.

September 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker posted two catches for 30 yards in Sunday's 15-9 win over the Roughriders.

On a night when the Stampeders passing game was largely conservative, Parker's modest reception tally was good enough for second on the team. The seven-year pro is once again filling the complementary role he's proven proficient in over his prior six CFL campaigns, as he's notched between two and four receptions in six of his last eight contests. He'll look to continue producing when Calgary faces off with the Alouettes in Week 15.

September 11, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker hauled in four receptions for 62 yards in Saturday's 25-22 win over the Eskimos.

Parker's spectacular 44-yard grab with 1:02 remaining and the Stamps down 22-18 brought them to the Eskimos' five-yard line, setting up a subsequent game-winning five-yard touchdown reception by Marquay McDaniel. The 27-year-old Parker continues to claim a modest but consistent role in the Calgary passing attack, recording at least two receptions in five of the last six contests. He's been particularly proficient downfield, posting receptions of between 21 and 51 yards in five consecutive games. Parker will look to continue contributing in Week 13 against the Lions.

September 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker caught two passes for 38 yards and also scored a 24-yard rushing touchdown in Monday's 39-18 win over Edmonton.

His role in the Calgary offense remains limited -- he hasn't caught more than two passes in a game all year -- but Parker caught the Edmonton defense by surprise early in the second quarter to score the first rushing TD of his seven-year CFL career. Expect his production to remain minimal moving forward barring a rash of injuries to Calgary's receiving corps.

July 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker totaled 15 yards and scored a touchdown on two receptions and added 19 yards on two rushes in Saturday's 60-1 win over the Ti-Cats.

Parker got into the act during the mammoth blowout, finding the end zone for the first time since Week 17 of last season. The 27-year-old often takes a back seat to the likes of Marquay McDaniel, DaVaris Daniels and Kamar Jorden, but the latter's ankle injury could potentially boost his opportunity slightly if it lingers into next week.

July 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker will start at slotback in Saturday's matchup with the Stampeders.

Parker has worked as a reserve wide receiver up to this point, but he will move positions and also move into the starting lineup this week in place of the injured Juwan Brescacin. It's not clear how long Brescacin will be out, but he landed on the six-game injured list, so Parker could continue starting beyond this week.

June 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker is listed as a reserve wide receiver for Friday's season opener against the Redblacks.

Parker finished third among Stampeders pass catchers in receiving yards in 2016, but it appears he will not have a prominent role to kick oft he 2017 campaign. In fact, he is the only player listed at either wide receiver or slotback in a reserve position, so he could wind up being a game-day scratch.

September 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker rushed twice for 19 yards and also totaled 38 yards on four receptions in Saturday's 34-28 overtime victory over the Eskimos.

Despite serving as a complementary cog in the Stamps' attack, Parker now has a career-high 40 receptions. He also received a season-high two rushing attempts Saturday, the second straight week that he's tallied at least one carry. Parker figures to continue in his current slot in the receiver pecking order barring any injuries in front of him.

September 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker caught three passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in Monday's win over the Eskimos.

His role as a deep threat prevents him from seeing the kind of target volume enjoyed by Marquay McDaniel or Bakari Grant, which makes him a volatile play on a week-to-week basis, but Parker is still providing plenty of fantasy value in the high-powered Stampeders offense.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker caught five passes for 97 yards in Friday's win over the Lions.

Bo Levi Mitchell spread the ball around Friday as five different receivers had either 60-plus yards or a touchdown, but Parker was the most productive of the bunch. He's been extremely inconsistent this year though -- he was held completely off the scoresheet last week against the Roughriders -- and as long as Mitchell has plenty of options to choose from, Parker's week-to-week numbers will remain volatile.

August 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win over the Roughriders.

His yardage has been inconsistent so far this season, as Parker has caught exactly two passes for between 18 and 26 yards in three of six games, but he's starting to show a nose for the end zone with TD catches in two of the last three games. As long as Bo Levi Mitchell keeps spreading the ball around though, Parker may need to rely on touchdowns to keep his fantasy value afloat.

July 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Parker caught seven passes for a team-high 81 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win over the Blue Bombers.

The TD was Parker's first of the season and the 81 yards accounts for more than 40 percent of his total production through four games. Despite Thursday's big performance, expect him to remain a secondary option in Calgary's passing game going forward.
