Fuller had surgery to repair a torn ACL in October and is expected to be ready for the 2019 season opener

Summary

Will Fuller is coming off a torn ACL that he suffered in Week 8 last year. He had surgery in October and is expected to be ready for the season opener. Prior to the injury, Fuller ranked 21st with 32 receptions for 503 yards and 4 touchdowns. Over 16 games, that would've been 73 receptions for 1,149 yards and 9 touchdowns. Fuller has found uncanny success scoring touchdowns with Watson under center. In 11 games with Watson, he has scored at least once in eight of those games. DeAndre Hopkins may be Watson's favorite target, but Fuller has made a living of getting open for the big play. Opposing defenses have to concentrate their efforts on stopping Hopkins, which has proven successful to Fuller. The return and recovery from the ACL injury may result in a slow start, but there is clearly a bond that can't be ignored that accentuates fantasy production. (May 3)
