Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is fully recovered from groin surgery, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 'We're excited about having him for 16 games,' O'Brien said. 'He looks as good as he's ever looked'
Fantasy Spin: Fuller has been a big-play machine when healthy, but injuries have become an annual tradition for the speedy receiver. The departure of DeAndre Hopkins pushes Fuller's ceiling even higher, but he is still a high-risk, high-reward WR3.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller has been targeted 20 yards or more downfield 31 percent of the time in his career - tied for the second-highest mark since 2015.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller's average depth of reception has been at least 14.2 yards in each of his four seasons in the league, according to Sports Info Solutions.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller finished with 670 receiving yards in 2019 - the second-highest total for a player who played fewer than 12 games last season - although more than half of that total (357 yards) came in two of his 11 contests.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V has struggled to stay healthy during his NFL career, but head coach Bill O'Brien says that "Fuller is doing great" after dealing with hamstring and groin issues last season. Having Fuller back and healthy is good news for the Texans, who need his field-stretching ability to help run O'Brien's preferred offensive system. A healthy Fuller could be a high-end fantasy WR2 now that DeAndre Hopkins is gone, but there's still so much uncertainty surrounding him, even if the team is optimistic about his ability to stay on the field in 2020.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) appears to be on track with his recovery from surgery, according to offensive coordinator Tim Kelly.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller has dealt with various injuries over the last few seasons but is in line for a bigger role in the passing game after the DeAndre Hopkins trade. He has played well when he has been healthy and is a big play threat because of his speed. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver when healthy but is a risky option because of the injury history.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V is entering his fifth year in the NFL and is currently playing out the final year of his contract with the Texans. The dangerous speed threat is a force when he's on the field, but all four of his previous seasons have featured missed games due to injury, with Fuller playing in 42 of a possible 64 games during his career. For this reason and because of concerns about his cost when he hits free agency, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic believes this could be the final year for Fuller in a Texans uniform. If healthy, he should be a great option for fantasy owners as a WR2 with DeAndre Hopkins no longer in town, though there's always significant injury risk when it comes to Fuller.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is 'doing great,' according to head coach/general manager Bill O'Brien Thursday, April 16. 'We're excited about Will. We're excited about the 2020 Will. We feel like he's really working,' O'Brien said. 'Like I've said a lot, when he's played for us, he's made huge plays. I think he's looking to have a really good 2020.'
Fantasy Spin: Fuller is expected to be the 1B to Brandin Cooks as the 1A in the Texans' passing game in 2020. Due to his horrific injury history, he's an extremely risky pick at any stage of fantasy drafts, but his upside makes him worth a shot as a WR3.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller played in 11 games in 2019, and the team averaged 26.3 points in those contests compared to 19.6 in the five games he missed. Houston had an 8-3 record when Fuller played and went 2-3 without him in the lineup.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller will be asked to be the No. 1 receiver for Houston in 2020 following the trade of DeAndre Hopkins, and while good things tend to happen when he is on the field, he has yet to play a full season. In fact, Fuller has played 11 or fewer games in each of the past three seasons. Fuller will have WR2 upside, but fantasy owners need to make sure to have depth at the receiver position if they choose to take a chance on him.
