Panthers WR Devin Funchess already knows all three receiver positions - [Full Article]

Panthers WR Devin Funchess' size and athleticism makes a good first impression. But the Carolina coaching staff is just as excited about his intelligence.

During organized team activities, the rookie has already displayed knowledge off all three wide receiver positions.

"It's huge," wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl said. "He can fill in for anybody. That helps us tremendously."

He's a big, fluid athlete. Proehl now has to polish his technique so those strengths can be maximized in Carolina's offense.

Fantasy Impact: 

Funchess could quickly become the team's WR2, but since the Panthers are run heavy that position isn't typically a productive fantasy producer, especially with Greg Olsen at tight end.
