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 expected to start (Sun Jul 23, 11:52 AM) - Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess, who was out-snapped 690-493 by Ted Ginn after being named the offensive MVP of last year's training camp, is projected to start, according to ESPN.com's David Newton.

Our View: Funchess's developmentt stalled out last year after a very promising offseason. Rookie Curtis Samuel should replace Ginn as the deep threat, but he is too raw as a receiver to get significant snaps. Free agents Charles Johnson and Russell Shepard are the top candidates to get more snaps if Funchess doesn't impress this summer.
