Colts insider Kevin Bowen calls Devin Funchess the "heavy, heavy favorite" to be the team's #2 WR this season. That's been our belief since Funchess inked a 1-year, $10 million deal with Indy back in March. The addition of 2nd-round rookie WR Parris Campbell clouded the picture a bit, but Campbell is expected to serve in a part-time role this season. Funchess is coming off a rough 2018 campaign in Carolina. But he went for 63-840-8 the previous year, is still just 25 and has that 6'4, 225-pound frame that should make him a red-zone weapon for a Colts squad that racked up 39 passing TDs last season. Funchess is a nice value at his current WR56 ADP.
Packers WR Devin Funchess has opted out of the 2020 season. He looked like Allen Lazard's biggest competition for the #2 WR job. Now Lazard will just need to hold off Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and Equanimeous St. Brown. We'll see how the depth chart shakes out over the next month, but we're bumping Lazard up the WR rankings. Davante Adams, of course, is set to dominate targets in Green Bay again.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Packers are "expected" to sign WR Devin Funchess. The former Panther and Colt appeared in just 1 game for Indy last season before succumbing to a broken clavicle. Funchess would now join a Packers offense that saw Davante Adams dominate targets in 2019. Adams drew 127 in just 12 regular-season games. Aaron Jones ranked 2nd at just 68 looks, with Jimmy Graham behind him at 60. Graham has left for Chicago, and #4 Marquez Valdes-Scantling saw his playing time disintegrate late last season. In short, there's clear opportunity for Funchess. He should compete for the outside job opposite Davante Adams, with Jake Kumerow, MVS and Equanimeous St. Brown as current competition. We'll see what else the Packers add to the corps this offseason.
The Colts are not planning to activate WR Devin Funchess (collarbone) from the IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The plate inserted into the break did not work out as hoped," Rapoport adds. "He hasn’t healed enough." Funchess is set to hit free agency this offseason. The Colts will move forward with Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Chester Rogers as their healthy WRs. We'll see when T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) are able to return.
Colts WR Devin Funchess will return to practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a collarbone fracture in the season opener, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Funchess landed on IR after Week 1 but could be ready to return with QB Jacoby Brissett for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Funchess would return to a WR corps that's still missing T.Y. Hilton and rookie Parris Campbell. We'll watch his progress this week.
The Colts have placed WR Devin Funchess on IR with his broken collarbone. That knocks him out until at least Week 10, so Funchess can be dropped in redraft leagues. We'll see who picks up his snaps going forward. The 6'2, 202-pound Deon Cain might be a sneaky bet. Parris Campbell, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal are other candidates.
