I was going to make turkey stock today using the carcass, giblets, onions, carrots & tops, parsley and salt and pepper. Should I also add in some reserved pan drippings from yesterday?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

Drippings will add great flavor to your stock -- best to remove the fat first, or your stock may be greasy.

This is one of the few times I'll politely disagree with Merrill. Because drippings are mostly fat I would be reluctant to use them. Remember that when you are making stocks you are trying to remove fats, not add them back in. I work through several steps in making clear stocks so I don't want to use drippings for anything but gravy.
