The Colts are fond of Parris Campbell long-term, but he is much more of a T.Y. Hilton model than the big-bodied red-zone threat they need on the opposite side like Funchess. He is a safe bet to be a useful fantasy piece, but without a huge ceiling.

Funchess could end up being a steal late in drafts. He could also completely bust. As of right now he's the #2 WR...which is a great situation to be in on an Andrew Luck offense. The Colts are going to score a boat load of points, so Funchess is going to have TD upside. The issue is Parris Campbell, and the other pass catching options. We don't know for sure how they plan on using Campbell, and we don't know the exact health status of Jack Doyle. There are a lot of guys to feed in that offense, so when everyone's healthy it's not very likely that he's a guy you'll be able to rely on. He does have massive upside if people were to get hurt though, or if he can stay on the field for all 2 WR sets. We'll learn more about this offense once the preseason begins...but he's likely being under valued at his current ADP.

Going from Cam Newton to Andrew Luck is going to feel really good for Funchess, as Newton isn't what you'd describe as an accurate passer, completing more than 61.7 percent of passes once in his career. Meanwhile, Luck completed 67.3 percent of his passes in 2018 in his first season under Frank Reich. It's going to be hard for him to find the targets he did in Carolina with so many mouths to feed, but he'll be a factor in the red zone opposite T.Y. Hilton, who hasn't been a big red zone presence during his career.
