Summary

Devn Funchess had a lot of buzz coming out of 2016 training camp, but fizzled during regular season with just 58 targets for a mere 23/371/4 receiving (that's a dismal 39.6% reception percentage, folks). He was also just under 50% receiving during his rookie season of 2015 (63 targets for 31/473/5) but instead of elevating his game, he took a step back in his sophomore NFL season. He is far from a lock to stay in a starting role during 2017. Rookie Curtis Samuel (who has 'oh my gosh' speed according to GM Dave Gettleman) and second-year pro Keyarris Garrett are among a bevy of players gunning for playing time and who could move past Funchess in training camp. Additionally, there is an injury concern here to look out for as preseason/training camp continues - Funchess wound up the season on IR due to a knee injury suffered on Saturday, December 24, 2016. Stay tuned as preseason goes along to monitor his rehab from that late-season problem. As you can see, there are a lot of question marks surrounding Funchess as we enter preseason/training camps. He's on shaky ground as the team's #2 wide receiver. (May 21)

Panthers | Devin Funchess remains out (Thu May 25, 10:37 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (ankle) remained out of drills during OTAs Thursday, May 25.

Our View: A second-round pick in 2015, Funchess has had a disappointing pro career. With the additions of RB Christian McCaffrey (1st round) and WR Curtis Samuel (2nd round), Funchess is going to find himself behind in the pecking order. He needs to get healthy and start impressing on the practice field.

Panthers | Devin Funchess sits out (Wed May 24, 11:53 AM) - Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (ankle) is being held out of drills Wednesday, May 24, due to a rolled ankle.

Our View: There's a lot of question marks around Funchess as he enters his third season in the pros. His numbers didn't go up last year (23-371-4) after posting 31-473-5 as a rookie in 2015. He ended the 2016 season on IR due to a late-season knee injury, and now he'll miss valuable time with this ankle injury. With the addition of pass-catching weapons like RB Christian McCaffrey and WR Curtis Samuel, the targets for Funchess could keep dwindling.
