Ethan Norof and Dan Besbris dig into the mess in Washington and whether anyone behind Brad Beal can actually find consistent fantasy value next year.

Jabari Parker led the Hawks in Wednesday's 93-113 loss to the Bulls, dropping 18 points, five rebounds, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes of action.
Parker also led the Hawks in playing time. He should be scooped up in all 12-team leagues given his role with John Collins suspended, and if he's going to start mixing in cash counters then we'll be cooking with gas. Expect a late-round floor on the back of scoring and rebounds with nice bonus production on nights like this.

Jabari Parker started for John Collins and had 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes in a win over the Spurs on Tuesday.
Parker is in line for a big minutes increase for the 25 games that John Collins will miss. Unfortunately, even when he's had a solid role in the past, Parker's stat set just doesn't produce much fantasy value. He's had just one season inside the top-100, but if you need points and rebounds, he's your guy.

Jabari Parker will start in place of John Collins (suspension) for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.
This was the expectation after the bombshell that dropped earlier today regarding Collins. Parker is going to get some of the most run of his career over the next 25 games and can be looked at as an add in all-sized leagues with top-100 capable play.

Jabari Parker scored 23 points to go along with eight rebounds in 25 minutes to lead the hawks on Thursday night.
Parker has been a good offensive producer for the Hawks thus far. The scoring has been there and he has offensive skill but it's just not a complete stat set for fantasy purposes. He's like a poor man's Carmelo Anthony which was never a great profile to begin with.

Jabari Parker scored 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting with a 3-pointer and a rebound against the Pistons on Thursday.
Parker had a strong debut against the Pistons and logged 22 minutes which is solid, but his only contributions to fantasy owners is points. If he's not red hot shooting the ball like tonight you're in for some awful lines. He's a guy worth monitoring or streaming, but we're not going to tout him as a must-own guy off a hot shooting night.

Jabari Parker filled in for a sick John Collins on Thursday and led the Hawks with 15 points.
Parker led the team in scoring but hit only two out of seven foul shots. The Hawks as a whole hit an embarrassing 15-for-34 from the line so the entire team forgot how to shoot tonight. Parker did just fine otherwise in this outing but it's hard to get excited knowing he won't have the minutes to make his volume-dependent production worth more than a late-round play.

John Collins collected two steals and two blocks to go with 14 points (5-of-7 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs), seven rebounds and a three against the Heat on Monday.
The only concern many have about taking Collins at his current ADP is in regards to his defensive output last season. It was likely bad luck to start the season, and he's gotten enough steals and blocks in the past to expect a rebound there. Take him with confidence in the top-35. His backup, Jabari Parker, tossed in nine points, 10 rebounds and six turnovers in the game.

The Hawks have officially announced the signing of Jabari Parker, and Parker says he has no problem coming off the bench.
Parker heads to Atlanta on a two-year, $13 million deal with a player option on the second season. He'll have a good chance to put up numbers on a Hawks team that looks like it'll try to outscore its problems and then hit the market again next summer, where the free agent class doesn't look overly appealing. Parker will be coming off the bench, so it's good that he's already accepted the role — at least outwardly. Atlanta's got young players to develop at the forward spots and Parker's playing time simply isn't a higher priority, though he figures to see minutes in the low twenties. That could still be enough to churn out boring late-round value.

Jabari Parker has agreed to a two-year, $13 million contract with the Hawks.
Parker will have a player option in the second year of the deal, which gives him a chance to rehab his value on a team that looks like it'll be able to churn out offensive stats. Fantasy owners probably won't find much here, as Parker looks to be blocked at the forward spots by John Collins and De'Andre Hunter.

Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis are unlikely to return to the Wizards, per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.
And with that, the Wizards dealt Otto Porter for nothing but cap space and a second-rounder in 2023. There were earlier reports that the Wizards wanted to work on a new deal with Parker but apparently they will let him leave in free agency. Washington has no forward depth to speak of at the moment, and we could be seeing a ton of rookies Rui Hachimura and Admiral Schofield this season.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Wizards will not be picking up Jabari Parker's option for next season, but that both sides are interested in negotiating a new deal.
Nobody expected Washington to be picking up Parker for $20 million next season, but news that both sides would like to try and work something out together is a worthwhile update. Parker averaged 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 threes on .493 from the field across 66 games with the Bulls and Wizards last season, carving out late-round value in standard formats. That feels like a safe outcome to project if he stays with Washington, as his stat set doesn't leave a ton of room for improvement even if his playing time increases.

Jabari Parker ended up missing the final three games of the season because of a sprained left knee, finishing with averages of 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 threes on .493 from the field.
Parker was mostly healthy this year and the bulk of his absences came when the Bulls moved him out of the rotation. He was a predictably hollow fantasy producer but the two woeful teams he played for allowed him to go hunt for buckets. Parker really performed well after being traded to the Wizards, as he shot a blistering .523 from the field and .613 from 2-point range. Hopefully he takes the hint and does most of his damage inside the arc going forward. Parker’s stat set remains questionable but he was able to grind out top-120/160 per-game value in 8/9-cat leagues, as well as top-130/160 total value.

The Wizards have ruled Jabari Parker (left knee sprain) out for Tuesday's regular-season finale against the Celtics.
Bobby Portis, Troy Brown Jr, Jeff Green, Devin Robinson and Sam Dekker will again all look to pick up the minutes left behind in Parker's absence. With the Celtics not playing any of their regular starters, the former three are all DFS value plays tonight.
Brad Beal was the real deal, but not much else worked out for Washington
