DeVante Parker (knee) limited for New England on Tuesday
New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) was limited at practice on Tuesday ahead of Week 14's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Parker logged his second limited practice in a row on Tuesday as he continues to deal with a knee injury. Back-to-back limited practices should have him on track to face the Steelers on Thursday night.

Patriots' Ezekiel Elliott (thigh) removed from injury report on Tuesday
New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott (thigh) was removed from the injury report on Tuesday.
Elliott began the week with a limited practice on Monday but was removed from the injury report on Tuesday. Barring a change on Wednesday, he should be good to go for Thursday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Elliott is expected to operate as New England's lead back with Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) expected to miss multiple weeks.
Elliott's Week 14 projection includes 72.3 rushing yards, 11.8 receiving yards, 0.34 total touchdowns, and 11.2 FanDuel points. His single-game salary is $12,000.
Patriots' Demario Douglas (concussion) DNP again on Tuesday
New England Patriots wide receiver Demario Douglas (concussion) did not practice on Tuesday ahead of Week 14's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Douglas remained absent from practice on Tuesday as he continues to miss time with a concussion he suffered in Week 12. At this point, it seems unlikely that he will be cleared to play against the Steelers on Thursday. Wednesday's practice report will provide more information.
The Patriots are 6.0-point underdogs against the Steelers in Week 14. Their implied team total of 12.25 points is the lowest team total on the 'Thu-Mon' slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
Pittsburgh's Najee Harris (knee) DNP on Tuesday
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris (knee) did not practice on Tuesday.
Harris' Week 13 availability could be in question on a short week after he was a non-participant on Tuesday with a knee injury. Expect Jaylen Warren to see a lead role on Thursday against a New England Patriots' unit ranked 15th in fantasy points (19.7) allowed per game to running backs if Harris is unable to practice.
Harris' current projection includes 14.7 rushing attempts for 57.3 yards and 1.8 receptions for 10.5 yards.
Giants will start Tommy DeVito at quarterback in Week 13
New York Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito will start in Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Despite recently opening Tyrod Taylor's return window from the injured reserve, DeVito will remain New York's starting quarterback. In a matchup versus a Green Bay defense ranked 16th in fantasy points (15.7) allowed per game to quarterbacks, our models project DeVito to score 13.4 FanDuel points.
DeVito's current projection includes 17.5 completions for 0.8 touchdowns and 188.4 yards and 5.7 rushing attempts for 25.4 yards.
