Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Fantasy Spin: DeAndre Hopkins, Demaryius Thomas and Keke Coutee comprise a formidable trio that can produce in Fuller's absence. You're starting Hopkins every week with Thomas holding low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 value and Coutee serving as a flex.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (knee) will have surgery on his torn ACL this week and is expected to be out six to nine months, according to a source. Barring setbacks, he's expected to be ready at some point during training camp next summer. Fuller just hasn't been able to stay healthy early in his career, and he finishes 2018 with 32 catches on 45 targets for 503 yards and four touchdowns. It's a big blow to Houston's passing game, but rookie Keke Coutee should benefit nicely moving forward if he can return from a hamstring injury in Week 9.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament in the next week and expected to miss the next six to nine months, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: The fact he is able to have the surgery so soon after the injury indicates he did not have significant swelling in his knee, which is a good sign and should mean he will be ready well in advance of training camp next season. From a fantasy perspective, DeAndre Hopkins should be locked into nearly 10 targets per week, while Keke Coutee should assume Fuller's old role. While Coutee may lack Fuller's straight-line speed, he was a feared deep threat in college and should be a strong WR3 the rest of the way.
Houston Texans' WR Will Fuller had 5 receptions for 124 yards with one touchdown in Thursday's win against the Dolphins.
Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) likely will not receive interest from the Houston Texans even after WR Will Fuller (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Fantasy Spin: Bryant has been linked with a few teams since being released but has not signed with anyone yet. He probably will not join a team this season and can be avoided in all leagues.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) suffered a torn ACL on Thursday, Oct. 25, against the Miami Dolphins, head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Friday. Fuller will miss the rest of the season.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller has been a fantasy stud when healthy the past two seasons -- including Thursday's five-catch, 124-yard, one-TD showing -- but staying healthy has been an issue as he'll have played only a combined 17 games in these last two seasons come the end of the 2018 campaign.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed that wide receiver Will Fuller (knee) suffered a torn ACL in the Thursday night win over the Dolphins and will miss the rest of the season. It's a big blow to the Texans offense and for Fuller's fantasy owners. He had five catches on six targets for 124 yards and a touchdown before his injury Thursday night and had three 100-yard games and four scores on the year. The injury-prone 24-year-old will remain a risk/reward fantasy pick in 2019 drafts. Although rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) was out Thursday night, he could return in Week 9 and will see a big workload opposite DeAndre Hopkins when he returns. Coutee will be a hot pickup off the waiver wire if he's available in your league.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller exited Thursday's win over the Miami Dolphins in the fourth quarter after sustaining a knee injury and did not return. Fuller was having a great game prior to the injury, catching five passes for 124 yards and a touchdown, but now all eyes turn to his injury status. Houston plays Denver in Week 9 and then has a bye week, so there could be time for the team to be cautious with Fuller.
Prior to his injury, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) caught five passes for 124 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 8 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Spin: It was Fuller's best game of the season, but if initial reports are correct it could prove to be his last one. Wait for official word from the team before taking action, but it wouldn't hurt to start checking your waiver wire.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) likely suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against the Miami Dolphins in Week 8, according to David Chao.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller will be out for the year if this turns out to be true, and while Keke Coutee is currently dealing with a hamstring injury, he would become an immediate fantasy starter when healthy.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) limped off the field with an apparent right knee injury against the Miami Dolphins in Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: It was encouraging to see Fuller walk off after remaining down on the field for a few minutes, but stay tuned for updates on his status. He's a WR3 with upside when healthy.
With the Miami Dolphins having allowed just five touchdowns to wide receivers and the Texans possessing a number-one receiver who rates as a top fantasy option, Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller finds himself in a tough spot on Thursday. Fuller hasn't found the end zone in three consecutive games as hamstring and hip injuries have hampered him. He possesses big play ability, but fantasy owners who start him will need to absorb the risk that Fuller busts this week.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) took part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 24 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 9 game with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Oct. 25.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller will be facing the NFL's 23rd-ranked pass defense, allowing 268.6 yards per game through the air. The Dolphins have yielded 26 pass plays or 20 or more yards through seven games, so there is opportunity for big plays for Fuller and the Houston pass offense.
Houston Texans CB Aaron Colvin (ankle), WR Keke Coutee (hamstring), OL Zach Fulton (ankle), TE Ryan Griffin (illness), S Andre Hal (shoulder), Brian Peters (ankle) and CB Shareece Wright (shoulder, hand, groin) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 24 and are out for the Week 8 game against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Oct. 25. WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) was a limited participant, while WR Will Fuller (hip), CB Johnathan Joseph (hip), RB Lamar Miller (chest), LB Brennan Scarlett (groin), TE Jordan Thomas (groin), QB Deshaun Watson (chest) and DE J.J. Watt (knee) were listed as full participants and removed from the injury report.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller was targeted eight times in Week 7 and could be more involved this week if Keke Coutee is not able to play. Fuller has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller didn't make the big plays he's become known for, but he did bounce back after a pair of poor performances to turn in a six-catch, 68-yard day in Houston's Week 7 win over Jacksonville. Though the Texans passing attack didn't get much going on Sunday, Fuller's usage helps assuage worries that his hamstring issue was hampering his productivity. He'll try to continue this improvement and get back into the end zone on Thursday against Miami.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught six passes for 68 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller was coming off a few disappointing weeks but was targeted eight times this week and lead the team with his 68 yards. He could see more targets if Keke Coutee misses time and could be at least a flex option for owners.
The past two weeks haven't been kind to Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller, who has a combined four catches for 42 yards in the two games. Part of that has been due to Fuller's limitations while dealing with a hamstring issue, while another issue has been the emergence of receiver Keke Coutee. Fuller has a difficult matchup against the Jaguars in Week 7 and has also been limited in practice with a hip injury. Starting him this week is a risk.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 18.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller is coming off back-to-back disappointing performances and may be behind DeAndre Hopkins and Keke Coutee in terms of targets. He could still be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller has struggled after a strong start to the season and has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last three games. He could be a flex option for owners but is not a must-start player in fantasy leagues.
