Panthers' Devin Funchess: Likely to retain No. 1 spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess is anticipated to maintain his No. 1, or 'X', receiver role in the Panthers offense despite last week's first-round selection of D.J. Moore, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Funchess overcame injury and benefitted from the trade departure of Kelvin Benjamin to turn in a career-best campaign in 2017, finishing with 63 catches for 840 yards and eight touchdowns. On the back of that production, the 23-year-old is expected to remain in the highly valued 'X' role going forward, likely leaving Moore to operate opposite him or in the slot. While Moore's presence figures to give quarterback Cam Newton a shiny new toy, Funchess's stock still seems to be on the rise from last season's success in an expanded role, and the fact he's currently entering a contract year only figures to motivate him more.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Plays hurt in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess (shoulder) caught four of eight targets for 79 yards in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card loss to the Saints.

Funchess was noticeably impacted by the shoulder injury he's carried for the past few weeks, and although he also rolled his ankle early on Sunday, he still soldiered his way to a productive performance. In fact, Funchess' yardage total marked his most since Week 12 of the regular season. On that day, which came in the midst of a strong stretch following the departure of former top wideout Kelvin Benjamin, Funchess topped 100 yards for the only time this term. On the whole, Benjamin being dealt to Buffalo helped result in a career-best campaign from Funchess, who finished with 63 receptions on 113 targets for 840 yards and eight touchdowns. As long as he gets his shoulder healthy, Funchess could well enter next season -- the last under his rookie contract -- as Carolina's No. 1 wideout. That pegging would obviously portend fantasy success, making Funchess someone to monitor over the course of this offseason.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: In uniform Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints.

The wideout, who caught two passes on six targets for 48 yards and a TD in Week 17's loss to the Falcons, has logged modest yardage totals over the Panthers' last three games as the team's top wideout. That said, the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder has at least maintained a degree of fantasy utility in TD-heavy formats by scoring five times over his last seven contests.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Listed as questionable for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints after logging a limited practice Friday.

We'll verify the wideout's status as Sunday's 4:40 ET kickoff approaches, but he's fully expected to be in uniform. Funchess, who logged two catches on six targets for 48 yards and a TD in Week 17's loss to the Falcons, has racked up modest yardage totals of late as the Panthers' top wideout, but he's maintained a degree of fantasy utility by scoring five TDs over his last seven outings.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess (shoulder) took part in Friday's practice, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Funchess did not practice either of the previous two days, but he was able to get back on the field Friday. It won't be clear until after practice how much work he was able to get in, but his participation alone bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Saints.
