Devin Funchess Compared To Rest Of NFC South WR1s

Recommended Posts

Something really interesting to think about this bye week.

  • Julio Jones (ATL): 49 Catches | 715 Yards | 14.6 YPC l 1 TD
  • Michael Thomas (NO): 59 Catches | 662 Yards | 11.2 YPC l 2 TDs
  • Devin Funchess (CAR): 43 Catches | 535 Yards | 12.4 YPC l 5 TDs
  • Mike Evans (TB): 40 Catches | 532 Yards | 13.3 YPC l 4 TD

From these stats, here's Funchess' hallmarks:

  • 1st the NFC South in touchdowns so far this season with five total.
  • 3rd in total yards and average yards per catch.

In the past two games where Funchess was a true WR1:

  • Julio Jones (ATL): 12 Catches | 175 Yards | 14.6 YPC l 0 TD
  • Michael Thomas (NO): 17 Catches | 182 Yards | 10.7 YPC l 0 TDs
  • Devin Funchess (CAR): 10 Catches | 178 Yards | 17.8 YPC l 2 TDs
  • Mike Evans* (TB): 6 Catches | 73 Yards | 12.2 YPC l 0 TD

So, based on these stats with Funchess as WR1...

  • 1st in the NFC South with touchdowns over the past two games (2).
  • 1st in the NFC South with average yards per catch over the past two games with an astounding average 17.8 YPC.
  • 2nd in the NFC South with total yards over the past two games, ahead of both Mike Evans and Julio Jones.

*In two games prior to suspension

So, just something to chew on...

That is awesome over a small sample.  He is at best the third best on that list but it includes maybe two of the top five in the league so no worries there.

I have felt he was better than KB and had no problem trading the latter.  My only problem with the trade was I believe that we could have got more.  Cam and Devin will have a lot of Fun(chess) together (yes, I am a dork)

Michael Thomas, Julio Jones, and Mike Evans all are some of the NFL's best WRs. I'd even argue Michael Thomas as one of the top five.

The fact that Funchess can produce with the best of them is very great.

After a couple of years of "I'm not impressed by him" and "he's not good" and "he can't catch", the new narrative around here is "he's gotten a lot better". And that is true, he's a better player because time = experience = improvement.....given that the player in question is a good player. Give Jimmy Clausen 3 years and he's still Jimmy Clausen. Or Dwayne Jarrett. Or whoever.

Funchess has always been good for us. He has always had the ability and now that he's in a position to show out, he is.

Do you not realize that posting random social media posts from a year ago doesn't mean anything at all. Watch the Aints games this year. He hasn't been much of a threat at all. There have been well over a dozen WRs better than him. This year and last year.

they have a diverse set of receivers who they spread the ball around to. 

Does not downgrade how good Michael Thomas is. Saints are just smart enough to use all their weapons.

Michael Thomas is still a very good receiver. I mean, just look at his week 3 game against us alongside what he did to Buffalo.
