Week 2 at Atlanta Falcons
Devin Funchess gained 41 yards on three receptions last week against a surprisingly stingy Cowboys pass defense. Funchess was targeted five times—a number that should increase in games where the Panthers are forced to throw the ball more frequently. The Dallas offense looked pitiful.
This week, Funchess will face a Falcons defense that held the Eagles passing game in check last week but lost two of their best defenders to season-ending injuries. Funchess is still risky because of the additional options available and the inconsistency of the Panthers passing offense, but he has some WR3 potential in deeper leagues.
