Draft note
by John Paulsen
Funchess turns 25 this summer and is coming off of a disappointing season. He caught just 44 passes for 549 yards and four touchdowns after posting a 63-840-8 receiving line in his third-year breakout season. His role in the Carolina offense decreased as the year went on—the Panthers instead gave work to rookie D.J. Moore and the dynamic Curtis Samuel in the back half of the season. Even Jarius Wright was seeing more snaps. It was time for a change of scenery and, football-wise, Indianapolis is about as good as it gets for Funchess. The Colts struggled to find a steady No. 2 target in the receiving corps, so they utilized TE Eric Ebron in that role. Funchess will compete with rookie Parris Campbell for No. 2 WR duties. Given the presence of Ebron (110 targets), Jack Doyle (5.5 targets per game) and Nyheim Hines (81 targets), Funchess is not a shoo-in for 100+ targets, but he should see plenty of playing time and provide Andrew Luck with another big target in the red zone. Another eight-touchdown season is within reach.

IND WR Devin Funchess - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Devin Funchess will get a new chance after four lackluster years with the Panthers. He looked poised for a breakout in 2017 with 63 catches, 840 yards and eight touchdowns, but regressed to 549 yards and four touchdowns last season. Funchess is a big body at 6-foot-4, who should be a red zone target for quarterback Andrew Luck. He’s only 25 years old and could still hit another level of development, particularly in such a productive offense. Only the Steelers attempted more passes than the Colts last season.

Fantasy Downside

Even if Funchess wins the starting job opposite T.Y. Hilton, the Colts will continue to use multiple tight ends in their offense, limiting Funchess’ targets. It’s possible he and the tight ends hurt each other when it comes to fantasy production. Eric Ebron will be competing with him for red zone looks, and Hilton is still going to be the primary option in the passing game. Funchess also may need to beat out rookie speedster Parris Campbell for targets, and Chester Rogers is still lurking around the roster as well.

2019 Bottom Line

Funchess should slide into the second-receiver role easily, and in such a great offense, it gives him WR2 upside. He’s risky, however, with so many other targets available, especially with Hilton there. Hilton has averaged 125 targets per season over his career and he’ll continue to be Luck’s favorite. However, considering all he costs is a late-round pick in most leagues, he’s worth rostering as a potential high-floor possession receiver if he carves out the role expected of him.
