After totaling at least 53 yards in five straight games from Week 2 through Week 7, Funchess has hit a wall in his production and has failed to record more than four catches or 44 yards in each of his last three games. He's only seen 13 targets in those three games, and there's only one common denominator between those games… D.J. Moore has played a much larger role in them. In those games, here's the targets: Funchess 13, Moore 13, Samuel 11. This is clearly an offense that has many moving parts and not one of them is guaranteed production every week. The Lions always attempt to take away the No. 1 option on the opposing team, but struggle with teams like the Bears and Panthers, who don't have one option they continually go to. They were without Darius Slay last week, which hurt, but even he has allowed four touchdowns on 36 targets in coverage this year. The 2.32 PPR points per target the Lions have allowed to wide receivers is the most in the NFL, though they've faced a league-low 132 targets to them. The efficiency should be there for Funchess this week, even if he sees limited targets. Trot him out there as a WR3 who is no sure thing, but he's seen nine red zone targets while no other Panthers wide receiver has seen more than three. The Lions allow a touchdown every 10.2 targets to wide receivers, which is the absolute worst in the league.

Devin Funchess shut down in third straight game

Panthers WR Devin Funchess caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards in Thursday night's Week 10 loss to Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact

Funchess has now caught fewer than four passes for 44 yards in three straight games without a touchdown. In two of those games, including Thursday night, Funchess caught three passes for 27 yards and 32 yards respectively. Although he is the WR1 in Carolina, he is merely a touchdown-needy WR3 in fantasy in most outings. It won't get any easier for Funchess, who draws a tough Lions secondary in Week 11.
