Here are your Week 5 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit.
Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers vs. New York Giants
Funchess has been Cam Newton’s main man but he’s likely to attract shadow coverage from Janoris Jenkins. Michael Thomas got a full dosage of Jenkins for an entire game and Funchess is likely to get similar treatment. There’s not many reliable receiving options for the Panthers outside of Funchess and Christian McCaffery. Especially if you’re in a PPR league, Funchess’ matchup will be a tough play, considering that the Giants as a team has yet to allow any receiver to catch more than six passes and most have failed to reach 60 yards receiving. – Ernie Estrella
