Preston Parker WR NYG 10 Days
Parker caught his only target for a six-yard gain in Sunday's 27-0 loss to the Eagles, while fellow wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a torn pattelar tendon.
Parker worked as the No. 3 wide receiver and primary slot man after Cruz suffered what will very likely be a season-ending injury. With Jerel Jernigan (foot) also done for the year, Parker is next up for the No. 3 role, though the Giants could also give Corey Washington a look. Parker, while the less physically gifted of the two receivers, is probably a better fit than Washington in the slot.

Parker caught three passes for 29 yards on five targets in Thursday's 45-14 win over the Redskins.
Working as the No. 3 wide receiver and top return man for both punts and kickoffs, Parker looked pretty good, albeit in a mostly uneventful performance. However, he may have suffered an injury, as Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News reports that Parker left for the locker room shortly before the end of the game. Injured or not, Parker may soon lose the No. 3 wide receiver role to rookie first-round draft pick Odell Beckham (hamstring), who finally returned to practice this week.

Coach Tom Coughlin plans to give Parker the first shot at taking over Jerrel Jernigan's split end role, ahead of Corey Washington, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Parker got the nod over the bigger, more dynamic Corey Washington on account of his experience in the league. We wouldn't expect a lot of targets, but the Giants often have three wideouts on the field, so Parker will see some. Keep in mind also that Odell Beckham could be back in the next couple weeks, so even if Parker's promotion is likely to be short-lived.

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.

Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman singled out WR Preston Parker as a player he's excited about this season.
Parker and Sammie Stroughter have been working with the second team during OTAs, most notably ahead of Dezmon Briscoe and Arrelious Benn. Parker is the clear favorite for the team's third receiver/slot job, but will only see a few targets each week behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams.
