Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess will return on a limited basis for the Week 13 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team has already publicly stated that they'll work him back on a regular basis.

Funchess fantasy owners are salivating at the thought of a matchup with the Bucs, but since he's on a limited play-count it'll be tough for him to reach his ceiling. Options like wide receivers D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, and even tight end Greg Olsen are in a much better position to succeed today with Cam Newton slinging darts.

The Bucs are allowing the second-most receiving touchdowns (17) so it is possible that Funchess can find himself in the end zone, but there are certainly better options to choose from.
