Fantasy Tip: Cotchery isn't worth drafting in 2015, but with Kelvin Benjamin out for the year, he is worth keeping an eye on in case rookie Devin Funchess struggles out of the gate.

Fantasy Tip: The team is taking things slow with Funchess to make sure he is ready for the start of the regular season. Funchess could be the team's No. 1 wide receiver this season since Kelvin Benjamin is out and could be a late-round option in leagues.

Carolina Panthers rookie QB Cam Newton said he has full confidence in rookie WR Devin Funchess stepping into the starting wide receiver role for the Panthers with WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) out for the season. Funchess sat out the team's second preseason game with a tight hamstring, but he's expected to play against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 28. "He's a competitor," Newton said of the former Michigan star. "He's a guy that wants to be great. We talk often. I'm pretty much a person that he can trust and that I know I can trust when the game comes on the line. We just need to get him to 100%."
Fantasy Tip: Funchess will surely have plenty of targets come his way from now that Benjamin is out for the season. He's best served as a WR3 on your fantasy team, but he has upside for more as a big-bodied wideout that could get plenty of looks in the red zone.

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess' (hamstring) football smarts will help alleviate his rookie learning curve, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera believes Funchess can fill in nicely for WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee), who is out for the year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Funchess said he won't be fazed by Benjamin's injury and that he's ready for an increased role.
Fantasy Tip: Funchess is the next man up in the Panthers' offense. Carolina doesn't have the most depth at wide receiver, so Funchess doesn't have the best competition to take away targets. He and Greg Olsen are expected to be the two main pass-catchers now. Look at Funchess as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Funchess is the favorite to take over the reins as the Panthers' No. 1 wide receiver now that Kelvin Benjamin is out for the year. It's encouraging that Funchess is able to practice this soon after injuring his hamstring. Consider him a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 heading into the regular season.
