With Corey Brown officially listed as doubtful (and unofficially described as “very doubtful“), the second-round pick from Michigan will move into the starting lineup.
“It’s kind of another achievement knocked off the chart,” Funchess said Friday, via ESPN.com. “I don’t sound excited, but I am excited about it.”
Funchess, who appeared in every regular-season game, has 12 catches foe 202 yards and a touchdown. His preparation for the 2015 season was hampered by a hamstring injury. It's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Funchess this week, but if he's on your wire he may be worth stashing for a week or two with the hope he impresses enough to remain a starter going forward.
