Panthers WR Devin Funchess (hamstring) returns to practice - [Full Article]

Devin Funchess has returned to the Carolina Panthers' practice field, and the news could not have come sooner.

Funchess participated fully in Panthers practice on Sunday, according to the Charlotte Observer. The rookie wideout reportedly dropped a few passes, but otherwise looked as if his strained hamstring wasn't bothering him.

Fantasy Impact: 

With Kelvin Benjamin out for the year, Funchess likely becomes the de facto WR1 for the Panthers. Provided he has no further setbacks, we would expect his ADP to climb into the 8th round after Benjamin went in the 7th/8th as a rookie. He's going to see a ton of targets as Cam Newton's primary target in the passing game.
