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.

Bucs signed WR Preston Parker to a one-year, $1 million extension, including $50,000 guaranteed.
An exclusive rights free agent, Parker signed a one-year, $540,000 deal in April, but is now signed through 2013. A $50,000 signing bonus is the only guaranteed part of his contract. Parker is coming off a 40/554/3 campaign, but should in for a reduced role following Tampa's signing of Vincent Jackson. He'll likely focus on returns this season.

Buccaneers re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Preston Parker.
The Bucs' slot receiver a year ago, Parker flirted with the fantasy radar in 2011 due largely to the fact that no other Tampa wideouts could get open. That's going to change with Vincent Jackson in Pewter this year. Parker is still an asset for the Buccaneers, but he won't be a fantasy pick in 2012.

Bucs WR Preston Parker sustained a concussion in Week 16.

Preston Parker caught four passes for 42 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
Today was just the second time in his past five games Parker was able to haul in more than two receptions. Averaging 3.29 catches and 44.3 yards through his first seven games, Parker will be little more than a WR 4/5 coming off the Bucs' Week 8 bye.

Bucs slot WR Preston Parker had five receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Colts.
Sandwiched around a 12-yard, one-catch effort in Week 3, Parker has 11 catches for 168 yards in Weeks 2 and 4. In a PPR format he is worth a look with Josh Freeman looking like a checkdown machine, but expect inconsistency from week to week. Parker is on pace for 64 receptions, 892 yards, and four touchdowns.
