Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller, who is the fastest player on the team with a 4.28-second 40-yard dash, is expected to be a big part of the team's offense in 2018. He has caught 75 passes for 1,058 yards and nine touchdowns in his two seasons in the league but was limited to 28 catches for 423 yards and seven TDs in 2017 in just 10 games due to a broken collarbone and knee injury. He has made a full recovery after arthroscopic surgery on his knee and could have a breakout season if he can stay healthy with Deshaun Watson at quarterback. "Yeah, Will's a huge part of what we're trying to do and to have him healthy would be a big step in the right direction," Texans receivers coach John Perry said. "He really creates problems with the way he runs routes, his ability to get behind defenders. He just continues to work on the little things of his trade, which is catching the ball over his shoulder and coming back and catching the ball in the air. So, those are all things he's getting better at and he's a big part of what we're trying to do."
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller is a 'huge part' of what the Texans want to do on offense, according to wide receivers coach John Perry.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller said his goal is to have a better season this year than he had in 2017, and head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller appears to be back at full speed at OTAs after battling nagging injuries last season.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (knee) will undergo minor knee surgery in the offseason, and he'll be full go in a few weeks. Fuller ends his second season in the NFL with 26 catches for 406 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns. Injuries have limited him to just 24 games in his first two seasons, but he showed real chemistry with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson before his season-ending knee injury. Fuller has talent, but he'll continue to be a volatile late-round fantasy pick because of his inability to stay healthy so far. However, he has breakout potential if he stays on the field with Watson back in 2018.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) will undergo minor surgery on his injured knee. He will be fully recovered in a few weeks.
Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates went 14-for-24 for 137 yards and one interception against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. RB Alfred Blue rushed for 39 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries and caught four passes for 26 yards. RB Lamar Miller rushed for 37 yards on eight carries. WR Will Fuller caught two passes for 17 yards, while WR Braxton Miller caught two passes for nine yards.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (knee) was injured in the Week 17 game against the Colts and will not return. With DeAndre Hopkins (calf) not playing in the season finale, Braxton Miller will be the clear lead wideout for quarterback T.J. Yates for the rest of this game. Fuller had two catches for 17 yards before his injury. Fuller's 2017 was mostly a disappointment due to injuries, but he did have a stretch of seven touchdowns in four games with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson under center. Fuller's fantasy stock fell drastically once Watson suffered a season-ending knee injury. But with Watson back healthy next year, Fuller will be a late-round sleeper for fantasy owners.

All signs seem to indicate that Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller will be the team's top target in Week 17, with star wide out DeAndre Hopkins (calf) becoming more and more unlikely to suit up. Fuller has been a boom or bust guy all season, with those boom weeks coming during Deshaun Watson's run as the team's quarterback and the bust weeks coming...well, every other week. Despite his place at the top of the depth chart, he's still a risky play because the Texans don't have the offensive personnel to extend plays long enough for Fuller to get downfield to make plays. He has his highest upside since the Watson injury this week, but it still might be best to look for other options if you have them.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller caught one pass for 10 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller hasn't found the end zone since Deshaun Watson was quarterbacking the Texans. In four games since then--he missed four others with a rib injury--Fuller hasn't had more than 44 receiving yards in a single game. At this point, it's clear that Fuller needs a quarterback like Deshaun Watson in order to make him an effective deep threat. Keep Fuller on your benches in Week 16.
