Free-agent wide receiver Devin Funchess (Panthers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts. It's a one-year 'prove-it' deal after Funchess fell off the map last season in Carolina, amassing just 44 catches, 549 yards and four touchdowns with a career-low 12.5 yards per grab over 14 games. It was a major drop from his promising third-year numbers when he posted 63 grabs, 840 yards and eight scores on 113 targets in 2017, all career highs. Perhaps a change of scenery and working with a new quarterback in Andrew Luck will get him going again. Funch could be a sneaky late-round flier if he can replicate his 2017 production in Indy.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess is a healthy inactive for Week 17 against the Saints. With nothing on the line, the Panthers have elected to rest Funchess to close out the year. He faded for fantasy owners down the stretch, but it didn't help that quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) struggled to get him the ball because of his injury. Funchess will finish with 44 catches for 549 yards and four touchdowns, a disappointment after he caught a career-high 63 passes for 840 yards and eight TDs last year. D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel will be the top receivers against New Orleans, but they have lower ceilings with rookie QB Kyle Allen likely to start.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess is likely to continue his recent poor form and struggle against the New Orleans Saints this week. Funchess has really struggled to perform in recent matchups, and will likely see limited opportunities this week. The Panthers have a multitude of receiving options that Cam Newton is able to use. With the impressive duo of D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel mixed in with elite running back Christian McCaffrey- Funchess will only be a starter in extremely deep leagues.
