Wild Card Round at New Orleans Saints
Devin Funchess has been nursing a shoulder issue, but he scored a touchdown last week and remains the top receiving option outside the hashes for the Panthers. Funchess scored a touchdown the last time he faced the Saints, and the Panthers will need him on the road against a tough defense.
The Saints were very average against the wide receiver position this year, and above-average in total defense, so it’s not a great matchup for Funchess. Additionally, he’ll probably draw Marshon Lattimore in coverage, a candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Still, the targets Funchess should get and the limited number of legit receiving options available in the Wild Card Round makes Funchess a borderline top-five starter in all league formats.
