Fuller had a hard time staying healthy for the third straight season, playing just seven games. He tore his ACL and has a long road back, but a good chance of being ready for the start of this season. Fuller was very productive when playing last year, having 32 receptions for 503 yards and four touchdowns. If he plays a full season, Fuller finishes with 73 receptions for 1,150 yards and nine touchdowns. Fuller had three 100-yard games and scored touchdowns four of seven games. He is the starter opposite DeAndre Hopkins as long as he is healthy. Fuller is a big-play threat that does a great job of stretching the field. He can keep defenses honest with Hopkins on the other side of him. Fuller has top speed for the position. He still needs a little work on his route running but is improving. He also has yet to play a full season because of injury.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: The sky is the limit for Fuller if he can stay on the field. But his injury history hurts his value. You can't overlook all his injury issues from his first three seasons. Consider him a low-end No. 2 receiver. If he plays a full year, he can get around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and eight or so scores.
For fantasy purposes, Will Fuller might as well have the unofficial first name of When Healthy. Because thats where every conversation about Fuller must begin, as hes missed 16 games over the past two seasons, most recently the second-half of 2018 with an ACL tear. But when healthy, Fuller can be electric, using his 4.3 speed to sprint through defenses that cant always spare extra coverage for him, given the presence of All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins.When healthy, Fuller is capable of going on streaks that can carry a fantasy team. After missing the first three games of 2017 with a broken collarbone, Fuller proceeded to announce himself to the world with seven TD in his first four games back. In 2018, he missed the first game of the season with a hamstring injury but then came back with touchdowns in his first three games back, as well as 100+ yards in the first two.But Fuller can also disappear. Eight times over the 16 games hes played in the past two seasons, hes had five or fewer catches and no touchdowns. Fuller, thy name is boom or bust. But coming off of ACL reconstruction he is expected to be ready for training camp Fuller can be had for a massive discount, with an NFBC ADP of 93, good for the 34th receiver taken.When healthy, Will Fuller has the upside of a top-WR2, with the price-tag of Courtland Sutton. If drafted, dont bank on a full season from him and have a backup plan. But with the low-risk of his cost, its worth rolling the dice for a potential season-changing Yahtzee.

Fantasy Spin: Fuller miss a majority of the 2018 season because of the torn anterior cruciate ligament. Fuller has played well when healthy and likely will have a solid role in the passing game again this season. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (knee), who missed the final eight games last season with a torn ACL, is practicing this summer but has yet to play in a preseason game. The 25-year-old said, however, that he wants to play in exhibition games before the regular season begins. Before his devastating injury in 2018, Fuller had 503 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 32 catches in seven games. The Texans are confident that he will be ready to play in Week 1 against the Saints, and his strong connection with quarterback Deshaun Watson makes him an enticing risk in fantasy drafts.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) participated in practice Thursday, July 25. He is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament but appears to be on track for Week 1. He has played well when he has been healthy and can be a deep threat for the Texans in 2019. Fantasy players can consider Fuller as a No. 3 receiver.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (ACL) practiced with the team on the first day of training camp, suggesting that he'll be fully healthy and ready to go as the 2019 season approaches. When Fuller is on the field, he's one of the NFL's most dangerous players and a touchdown magnet for quarterback Deshaun Watson, but Fuller's played just 17 games over the past two seasons. Houston needs him on the field. If Fuller's healthy this year, he has the skill and the touchdown upside to finish as a WR2.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is expected to be completely recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in time to play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller missed the entirety of spring workouts and figures to be limited at best early in training camp, but he will be roughly 10 months removed from surgery by the time the Texans visit the Saints on Sept. 9. Of course, his biggest challenge will be staying on the field - something he has struggled to do as a pro. He's a high-end WR3 who owners need to have a backup plan for, as he has missed 17 of a possible 48 games in his three-year NFL career.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (ACL) is expected to be ready to go for the start of the 2019 season. Fuller's played just 17 games over the past two seasons, but when he's on the field he's one of the NFL's best downfield weapons and has developed great chemistry with quarterback Deshaun Watson. Even with serious injury concerns, the upside is too great with Fuller to pass up on him in the middle rounds of the draft. He has 11 touchdown catches over the past two seasons and with DeAndre Hopkins playing across the field from him, defenses aren't able to double Fuller, allowing him to get open deep on a routine basis.
The Houston Texans exercised wide receiver Will Fuller's fifth-year team option on Friday. Fuller was the team's first-round pick in 2016 and he'll make $10.162 million in 2020. Despite his upside, Fuller hasn't been able to stay healthy and is currently recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last year. In his 11 games played with quarterback Deshaun Watson, Fuller has 11 touchdowns. Starting opposite DeAndre Hopkins, Fuller still has heaps of potential in fantasy and real life if he can just stay on the football field. The 25-year-old has played in only 31 games in his three seasons in the NFL.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller had his fifth-year team option for 2020 exercised Friday, April 26.

Fantasy Spin: Fuller has produced 13 TDs in 31 games, but the question remains his health as he's missed a combined 17 games over his first three seasons. Value him as a low-end WR3 for the time being.
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) will be at 10 months removed from tearing an anterior cruciate ligament when Week 1 begins. In the opinion of HoustonTexans.com's Drew Dougherty, he'll be 'stunned' if Fuller isn't on the field for Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: As recently reported, Fuller has a shot at being ready for training camp. The timeline for Week 1 puts him behind the typical nine-month pace, suggesting he should be ready in advance of the season-opening week. He hasn't played a full slate in his career, and Houston keeping Fuller healthy via managed reps will be a factor to consider when targeting him in fantasy drafts. He's a strong WR2 when at 100 percent but should be drafted as a third or flex.
HoustonTexans.com's Drew Dougherty said he'd be shocked if Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (knee) isn't ready to go for Week 1 of the 2019 season. Fuller's rehab from a torn ACL is going well, and head coach Bill O'Brien has said a few times that he should be ready for training camp this summer. The 24-year-old has not played in a full season in his three years in the NFL and had 32 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns in seven games in 2018. He has plenty of touchdown upside and could break out in a full healthy season across from DeAndre Hopkins, but he'll remain an injury risk in fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Spin: Fuller has missed 17 games in his three-year career, but he's been effective when on the field. If he's full go by training camp and avoids any setbacks, he deserves consideration as a WR3 with obvious risk.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said that the team "feels really good about where Will Fuller is right now" in his rehab from a torn ACL last year. O'Brien isn't putting a timetable on Fuller's return, but there is a chance that he's ready by training camp this summer. The 24-year-old has a ton of upside opposite DeAndre Hopkins in 2019, but it'll be a matter of whether he can stay on the field. Fuller played in just seven games last year (32 catches, 503 yards, four touchdowns) and has yet to play more than 14 games in his three years in the NFL. He's averaged 14.6 yards per catch, however, and has 13 touchdowns in his 31 games played.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is making good progress in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but his availability for offseason workouts is uncertain, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller suffered the injury in October, so he may not be on the field until training camp. He has shown good chemistry with Deshaun Watson when healthy and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2019 if he is healthy.
