Week 12 vs. Seattle Seahawks
Devin Funchess has been disappointing the past four games, failing to catch more than four passes or eclipse 50 yards in any of them. Funchess is still getting targets – eight last week against the Lions – but he’s not delivering consistent fantasy production, even in good matchups. 44 yards against the Buccaneers swiss cheese defense does not inspire confidence.
This week, Funchess will face a Seattle defense that has been above average against the wide receiver position this season. Funchess’ targets are encouraging and point to a high floor, but his lack of production makes it hard to trust using him in any game, let alone against a decent defense. He’s a low-end WR3 option in deep leagues at best.
Funchess looks like he won't be active today, so fantasy owners should be sure to leave him out of lineups. This should help D.J. Moore, and in extremely deep leagues, Torrey Smith.
