Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs IND (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
His day ended with a knee injury but he stood on the sideline all game next to Bill O'Brien not looking like he was in any real pain. Fuller had 2 receptions for 17 yards on the day with his longest going for 13 yards.
2017 Week 15 vs JAX (5 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)
Fuller has become non-existent on being a vertical threat since the exit of Deshaun Watson. Fuller did have 5 receptions for 44 yards but they are all under neath routes with the Jaguars playing over the top in coverage. His longest reception was 15 yards on the day and he did not have a target over 20 yards on the day.
2017 Week 14 vs SF (5 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
It started out strong for Fuller catching back to back passes for 14 and 12 yards to extend drives in the 1st quarter. After that he was only targeted three more times with his first catch not coming again until late in the 2nd quarter on a jet sweep that went for no yards. The Texans did try to go over the top with T.J Yates to Hopkins but was overthrown with Fuller double covered. For his first game back, it was a very uninspiring effort.
2017 Week 10 vs LAR (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Only two receptions for Fuller on the day, he was knocked out of the game after a big hit in the middle of the field. Fuller ran a quick slant and the ball was late and it led him into the safety who knocking him out for the game after a big hit to his back. Fuller's ribs were the issue and did not return after the hit.
2017 Week 9 vs IND (8 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
His chances were about the same but he could not provide the big play ability he has the past few week. His longest reception was a29 yard pass where he beat his man to the middle of the field where he was wide open for Savage. Fuller was also not provided the best passes either to handle from Savage which slowed his production.
2017 Week 8 vs SEA (8 / 5 / 125 / 2 rec)
Will Fuller opened up the scoring for the Texans when he went vertical and split both the cornerback and safety for a 59-yard bomb off the arm Deshaun Watson for a touchdowns. Fuller was not finished adding a 20 yard touchdown reception on a corner route beating his man while making a leaping catch before being hit. Fuller continues to be the Texans big play threat and he has now caught 7 touchdown passes for the season on only 13 receptions.
2017 Week 6 vs CLE (5 / 2 / 62 / 1 rec)
There has not been a bigger impact to the offense since the arrival of Fuller three weeks ago. Fuller only had two receptions for 62 yards, one which went for a 39 yard touchdown when he was wide open getting vertical. The bigger issue for Fuller is that he potentially missed two big plays by losing one late and not seeing the ball that was well thrown. The other he had his man beat and dropped the pass that hit him right in the hands in the second half. Fuller is getting chances for big plays, it is a matter of him continuing to put it together.
2017 Week 5 vs KC (3 / 2 / 57 / 2 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Once again the impact of Fuller is bigger than most realize and it starts with the construction of the Texans offense. Only two receptions on the night and both with for touchdowns. Fulller had a solid 9-yard touchdown reception on a broken play where Watson bought time scrambling only to hit him in stride and Fuller did the rest for the touchdown. Fuller's biggest play where he went vertical, beat his man and Watson laid up a pass for him to go get that resulted in a 48 yard touchdown reception. Fuller is showing his ability to get into the end zone the past two games and becoming a viable option in the passing game.
2017 Week 4 vs TEN (6 / 4 / 35 / 2 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Will Fuller made his 2017 NFL debut and his presence helped open up the offense. Fuller's vertical presence opened plenty of space underneath him for Watson and other receivers to go to work. Fuller had 4 receptions for 35 yards and his two best receptions came on touchdown catches on corner routes. Fuller also had a key third down reception to extend a drive. Fuller is going to start opposite of Hopkins and continue to get snaps on the field. His presence alone gives the Texans a deep threat and Watson tried it twice and one would have been a touchdown but he was tackled in the end zone. Fuller is an early game changer for the Texans.
