Fuller was a WR1 after four weeks and then injuries and the Texans putrid passing game dragged him down to being barely rosterable in most leagues for the rest of the season. That could change this year with the introduction of Deshaun Watson at quarterback. Fuller's deep speed and the promise of a functional pass offense makes him an excellent hail mary in best ball leagues in the 13th round or later.

Summary

The presence of DeAndre Hopkins on the Texans makes it difficult for any secondary receivers to be fantasy relevant. Since Hopkins' rookie year of 2013, only one WR2 had over 100 standard fantasy points, Andre Johnson in 2014. Unless Deshaun Watson becomes more of a gun-slinging deep thrower, the same should be the case in 2017. Will Fuller had a fairly decent rookie season in 2016, despite the Texans quarterback woes. He had 47 receptions for 635 yards and 2 touchdowns and started his career with a bang. His first four games accounted for both of his touchdowns and 40% of his receptions. A hamstring injury slowed his development in year one, but he showed signs of being a reliable option despite having a reputation for occasionally dropping passes. He is currently the Texans number two wide receiver and should continue to develop his craft heading into year two. (May 20)
