NFC South mainstays Devin Funchess and Adam Humphries will now suit up in the AFC South after signing contracts on Monday. Mike Davis and Tyler Kroft found new homes as well.
Devin Funchess, Wide receiver
Funchess put himself in a good situation on Monday. While his bank account isn’t blowing up, his stat line certainly should.
Signing with the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Funchess upgraded from Cam Newton to Andrew Luck.
With the addition of Funchess, the Colts got the Robin to T.Y. Hilton’s Batman that they were looking for.
When Funchess is healthy, he has been productive. In 2017, the Michigan Man had 63 catches for 840 yards and eight scores.
The addition of Funchess should make Luck QB3 or 4, solidly behind Patrick Mahomes and Drew Brees for sure.
Funchess has a solid chance to be a WR2 in this offense.
Adam Humphries, wide receiver
Going into an all or nothing year, Jameis Winston will be down his deep man and slot receiver. Possession man Adam Humphries was inked to a deal that will have him catching passes from the 2015 Draft’s second pick in Tennessee.
Marcus Mariota now has a guy in the middle to go along with Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor.
Humphries caught passes for 816 yards and five scores last season as the chain mover in Tampa Bay.
His PPR value will drop slightly going from a pass-happy to a run-oriented offense. If Humphries can reach 80 receptions, he could be an every week starter for most fantasy teams.
Mike Davis, Running back
It’s not Mark Ingram, it’s not Le’Veon Bell, but it is something new for Bears’ fans.
Bears’ fans quickly grew tired of Jordan Howard’s tendency to run right into the line last year.
Davis found a niche in Seattle as a change of pace back for Chris Carson, rushing for 514 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Assuming Howard ends up elsewhere, Davis acts as a change of pace for scatback Tarik Cohen and will likely carry the ball at the goal line and on first downs.
Tyler Kroft, tight end
On the same day the Bengals retained Uzomah, former Bengal Kroft ends up in Buffalo.
Kroft appears to be the best tight end in Buffalo with Charles Clay in Arizona. That will leave him to compete with converted quarterback, Logan Thomas, for touches at TE.
Kroft caught seven touchdowns in 2017. He is barely a best ball option at this point.
