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)

Latest News

Texans | Will Fuller leaves practice (Thu Aug 22, 06:04 PM) - Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 22, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller is not hurt and that the team is managing his snaps during practice.

Our View: Fuller is set up for a hot start with Keke Coutee banged up and more targets likely coming his way against the Saints in Week 1. He's worth his modest (considering his scoring history) ADP.

Texans | Will Fuller wants to play in preseason (Thu Aug 15, 06:55 PM) - Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) said he hopes to receive some playing time this preseason so he can knock off some of the rust.

Our View: Fuller only made it through seven games in 2018 before this knee injury shut him down for the year. He's talented, has a great connection with QB Deshaun Watson and can be one of the best deep threats in the game when healthy. Fuller has a current ADP of WR33 (7.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
