Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 19 vs KC (8 / 5 / 89 / 0 rec)
It was the first game for Will Fuller in two weeks since injuring his groin in week 16. His presence was enough to open up the passing game and not only get him looks but help Deshaun Watson spread the ball around. Fuller's longest reception was 39 yards down the left sideline when he blew by a Chiefs defensive back. Fuller was also able to haul in a 30-yard reception helping Watson put together a strong deep ball game.
2019 Week 15 vs TEN (7 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)
When Will Fuller plays that usually means good things for the Texans offense. Fuller did most of his work on intermediate routes and racked up 61 yards running hitch and curl routes. The Titans were worried about his vertical presence, Hopkins and Kenny Stills were able to do most of the damage.
2019 Week 13 vs NE (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Fuller was on the field. He had a 35-yard touchdown pass knocked out of his hands from a well-thrown ball from Deshaun Watson.
2019 Week 12 vs IND (11 / 7 / 140 / 0 rec)
It was the return that many have been waiting for, and when his injuries frustrate, Will Fuller comes back with a vengeance. Fuller, who has missed the past three games due to a hamstring injury, came back and put on a show catching seven passes for 140 yards to lead the Texans offense. Fuller had two receptions that covered 44 and 51 yards that opened up the Colts defense. The chunk plays were there for Fuller and Watson, but he also was able to come up with key first down reception late in the game for 15 and 11 yards to keep the clock running. The Texans offense is much more explosive with Fuller in the lineup, and he can rack up receiving yards in a hurry.
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.
Latest NewsTexans | Houston blows big lead, falls in Kansas City (Sun Jan 12, 06:31 PM) - Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 31-of-52 passes for 388 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 51-31 AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, as the team blew a 24-0 lead. RB Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 44 yards, while Watson also added 37 yards and a score. WR DeAndre Hopkins ended up with nine grabs for 118 yards on a game-high 14 targets. WR Will Fuller was a nice secondary option with 89 yards on five catches, while WR Kenny Stills posted three receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. TE Darren Fells also had three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. RB Duke Johnson also chipped in with 11 rushing yards and five grabs for 23 yards. CB Lonnie Johnson also had a blocked kick return for touchdown in the first quarter while totaling four solo tackles. Our View: Watson was gifted a 24-0 lead but then turned into a deer in the headlights like his teammates as the game quickly slipped away. The stats were great in a perfect fantasy football game script, but this game will be remembered as an all-time collapse. The Texans are unlikely to make any majors this offseason and will be without their first and third round picks in the draft.
