In 2009, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Roscoe Parrish caught three passes. He'd never had more than 35 in a season, and barely saw the field after falling out of favor with the team's previous coaching staff. This preseason, however, has been a re-birth of sorts for Parrish, who through three games has caught seven passes for 82 yards with a score. He's also been a big part of Buffalo's offense, seeing the field in three-receiver sets and even getting the ball on a reverse.
I'll agree with Chris from The Goose's Roost - Steve Johnson may be Buffalo's second receiver in name, but Parrish will likely see more opportunities in 2010.
The question then becomes (as we posed in the headline) whether or not Parrish has any fantasy value. For now, he's still not a draft option in most leagues; Buffalo's offense still has a ton to prove, and C.J. Spiller may start stealing slot reps once Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson are healthy in the backfield. But you certainly need to keep an eye on Parrish as a mid-season pickup, because it seems fairly apparent at this point that he's earned himself a significant role in Chan Gailey's offense.
