Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 8 vs MIA (6 / 5 / 124 / 1 rec)
When the Texans needed big plays they turned to Will Fuller and he was able to put up a 34-yard catch and run reception. Then his big play came on a 73-yard touchdown reception which he beat two defenders deep for an easy pitch and catch. Fuller continues to be their big play threat but he is expected to miss the reminder of the season with a torn ACL he suffered on Thursday night.
2018 Week 7 vs JAX (8 / 6 / 68 / 0 rec)
Will Fuller continues to have his numbers cut into by the emergence of Keke Coutee. After Coutee went out with his hamstring injury, Watson turned to Fuller to start making plays. 6 of his targets came after the injury and he ended up 3 of those receptions going fo 11, 13 and 15. Watson missed a wide open Fuller running deep beating AJ Bouye but he was just missed due to pressure on Watson. His biggest reception came on an 11-yard tunnel screen where ran over a defender to push for the final four yards to ice the game.
2018 Week 6 vs BUF (3 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)
Another quiet week for Fuller but when the Texans needed some big catches to get the chains moving Watson finally looked his direction. Fuller had receptions for 17 and 16 but teams continue to be scared of him as a deep threat. Fuller had coverage beat early in the 1st quarter but Watson missed him with an errant throw, if it was put on the money it would have been a walk in touchdown for Fuller. There was a deep ball intended for Fuller that resulted in a defensive pass interference and he was shook up after landing on a camera but he shook it off and came in a play later.
2018 Week 5 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
It was a down day for Will Fuller and he was on the field for most of the game but only had two receptions for 15 yards. Fuller has been dealing with a hamstring all week but it appears he was as decoy most of the game with no real vertical presence. He was only targeted three times and one of those the ball was deflected by a linebacker rushing Watson.
2018 Week 4 vs IND (5 / 4 / 49 / 1 rec)
Will Fuller loves when he is on the field with Deshaun Watson and notched another touchdown reception for 3 yards. Fuller continues to rack up touchdowns off the arm of Watson and he also had 49 yards receding. Fuller did the toe tap twice down the right sideline hauling in receptions for 18 and 22. It would have been a bigger day for Fuller is he did not injure his already problematic hamstring. The Texans held him out the entire second half and overtime, if not for that it would have been a much bigger day for Fuller.
2018 Week 3 vs NYG (11 / 5 / 101 / 1 rec)
His growth as a receiver with Watson is something to see and in only 6 games, Fuller has turned into a prime time player. Fuller had receptions for 28 and 37 yards and showed he can run away from coverage and even was physical breaking tackles. Fuller had 5 receptions and just like last week when it came for a big play, He was called upon to to flip the field. Fuller notched a touchdown reception after Hopkins initial one was wiped out due to a penalty. It will be interesting to see what happens with his targets as the season goes on but this is the second week of high end production.
2018 Week 2 vs TEN (9 / 8 / 113 / 1 rec)
It was Will Fuller's first game of the season and it is clear that Watson likes when he is in the lineup. Fuller caught 8 passes on the day and 7 of those were simple comebacks or outs for 6, 7 and 8 yards a pop. The Texans kept using Fuller like that and then he was able to get vertical after the Titans defense started creeping up and busted them for a 39 yard touchdown reception. Fuller balances out the offense and was able to produce when given the chance and if anything he is showing why he is an important part of the Texans offense.
Latest NewsTexans | Will Fuller on track for opener (Thu Apr 18, 12:26 PM) - Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is fully anticipated to be ready for the Texans' regular-season opener, according to general manager Brian Gaine. 'Everything is trending in the right direction,' Gaine said Thursday, April 19. 'Everything is looking good.' Our View: Fuller brings speed to stretch the field for the Texans offense when he's healthy. The talent is there but man alive does he get banged up a lot. We're excited that Fuller will be ready for the season opener in 2019 but there's also some trepidation given his injury history.
link to story Texans | Will Fuller a near lock for Week 1? (Sun Apr 14, 04:41 PM) - Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) will be at 10 months removed from tearing an anterior cruciate ligament when Week 1 begins. In the opinion of HoustonTexans.com's Drew Dougherty, he'll be 'stunned' if Fuller isn't on the field for Week 1. Our View: Fuller may be on the field at that time but he may not be 100 percent. They will likely ease him into action once training camp hits in August. We'll see if Fuller can stay healthy and produce. Talent is not an issue with the young receiver, but he has yet to play a full 16-game season in three years as a pro.
