Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs KC (9 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)

A week after putting the NFL on notice, Fuller missed a huge day dropping two possibly three touchdowns receptions off the arm of Watson. Fuller had Chiefs defenders beat the entire game, but he could not finish catches like he did the week before. He did haul in five receptions on the day, but this was after the Texans cut down, sending him deep and put him on the shorter route to get his confidence up late in the game. Fuller missed having two massive games back to back with his performance on Sunday.

2019 Week 5 vs ATL (16 / 14 / 217 / 3 rec)

It was a career day for Will Fuller putting up 217 yards and tying a franchise record with 14 receptions on the day. Fuller even put up three receiving touchdowns which even tied a franchise record and was a yard short of setting the record fourth touchdown. Fuller pulled out the full array of routes to put yards up on the Falcons. He had three receptions over 30-plus yards including a game sealing 44-yard touchdown reception. His first touchdown game on a play-action pass for six-yards in between two defenders where he was wide open. Fuller was able to show his speed and prolific route running to get open giving Watson some easy throws to hit.

2019 Week 4 vs CAR (6 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

Will Fuller was targeted on 20-plus routes twice and both were incomplete. Watson missed a wide-open Fuller after he beat two Panthers defenders on an excellent post route. If the pass were better from Watson, Fuller would have coasted into the end zone. Again, the Panthers were playing zone most of the game and kept Fuller under wraps working underneath routes.

2019 Week 3 vs LAC (7 / 5 / 51 / 0 rec)

The wealth is being spread around and when the Texans need to inject life into their offense, they turn to Will Fuller. His 30-yard reception to get the Texans into scoring position for the Hyde touchdown proved big to swing things into the Texans favor. Fuller was able to get vertical and use his speed to create space to give Watson a clear space to get him the football. Fuller continues to make his catches versus underneath coverage and despite using 11-personnel most this season. Fuller remains getting his fair share of targets.

2019 Week 2 vs JAX (7 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)

With Hopkins taken out of the game, the Texans turned to Will Fuller to pick up the slack. Fuller had beautiful 28-yard reception off the arm of Watson to get the Texans out from deep in their territory. Fuller got down the right sideline, and Watson dropped a dime to him in stride. Fuller had two costly drops both that hit him in his hands that he could not haul in. Fuller had a couple of receptions for 7 yards but missed his big opportunities in the passing game with his drops.

2019 Week 1 vs NO (3 / 2 / 69 / 0 rec)

The Texans offense was looking for anything after slow start then Watson went to a big throw to Fuller for 54 yards over Eli Apple. It was on an under thrown ball but it was adjusted well to by Fuller to make the reception. Fuller also had another target intercepted when Watson forced it into double coverage.

Texans | Will Fuller likely to miss several weeks (Mon Oct 21, 12:43 PM) - Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to miss 'several weeks' after suffering 'a rather significant hamstring pull,' according to a source via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: Fuller is incredibly talented but he's oft-injured. A hamstring injury, especially one this severe, can really limit a speedy receiver like Fuller. The Texans turn to Kenny Stills in his place, and we should see Keke Coutee work as the team's No. 3 receiver with Fuller out.
