Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess struggled to establish a consistent rapport with QB Jacoby Brissett during organized team activities (OTAs), as starting QB Andrew Luck was held out. Head coach Frank Reich still praised the aptitude and route running of Funchess.
Fantasy Spin: Funchess had a high drop rate in Carolina last season, and it appears he is off to a slow start in his new home. He is expected to fulfill the No. 2 receiver spot filled by Ryan Grant and Dontrelle Inman last season, so there is a possibility he re-emerges as a decent fantasy option working with Andrew Luck, but wait to see how he does in the preseason.
Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess knows how to run a lot of QB Andrew Luck's favorite routes, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Fantasy Spin: Funchess never seemed to to put it all together in Carolina, but if he can establish himself as the No. 2 option across from T.Y. Hilton, WR3 production isn't out of the question.
Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess was a player that head coach Frank Reich pushed the front office to pursue in free agency. 'I'm so excited about Devin,' Reich said. 'I mean, when I watch his tape, what I see is a big man who is really athletic.'
Fantasy Spin: Funchess is coming off a down year, but he will be given every opportunity to become the No. 2 option in the passing attack. Consider him a WR4 with upside.
Free-agent WR Devin Funchess (Panthers) officially signed with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, March 14.
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 impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess plans to sign a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth as much as $13 million, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: The Colts have been looking for a No. 2 receiver, so Funchess could take over that role next season. He is coming off a disappointing season where he posted only 549 yards and four touchdowns. Funchess could be a possible late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess is referring to himself as a 'former Carolina Panther' and 'now looking for a new team.' After an unproductive season the team is not expected to re-sign him.
Fantasy Spin: Funchess racked up 63 grabs for 840 yards and a career-best eight scores in 2017, but he tumbled back to mediocrity with just 44 catches, 549 yards, four touchdowns and a career-low 12.5 yards per grab last season over 14 outings. He might land a new job, but he has a long way to go to prove himself to fantasy owners again.
Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess could be an option for the Baltimore Ravens because his size would allow him to be an effective blocker when QB Lamar Jackson scrambles, according to Clifton Brown of BaltimoreRavens.com.
Fantasy Spin: Funchess would also be a big target for Jackson in the passing game, but after seeing the run-heavy approach the Ravens adopted with Jackson as the starter, it is hard to see any Baltimore receiver being a great fantasy option in 2019.
Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess likely will not re-sign with the Panthers this offseason because of WR D.J. Moore's performance during the second half of the season.
Fantasy Spin: Funchess probably will receive interest from some teams if he hits the free-agent market, but it is not known if he can find a starting job. He can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his role.
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.
The Carolina Panthers have declared DL Kawann Short, QB Cam Newton, CB Lorenzo Doss, WR Devin Funchess, OG Trai Turner, LB Efe Obada and TE Jason Vander Laan inactive for Week 17.
Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess, a pending free agent, won't be back with the team in 2019.
Fantasy Spin: With the Panthers turning toward young wideouts D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, Funchess' numbers (44 receptions-549 yards-4 TDs) were down markedly from 2017 (63-840-8). Still, expect a WR-needy team to throw some decent dollars at the 6-4, 225-pound wideout this offseason.
