Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller was targeted 11 times during the win over the Colts, finishing with seven catches for 140 yards. After accumulating 217 yards and three touchdowns against the Falcons in Week 5, Fuller fizzled in his previous two contests coming into Thursday night, so this performance was a step in the right direction. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect this type of production consistently moving ahead, especially in Week 13 against a tough Patriots Defense, but the ceiling is always high when the matchup is in his favor, as long as he can stay healthy and on the field.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) caught seven passes for 140 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12.
Fantasy Spin: Returning after a month-long absence, Fuller didn't miss a beat, averaging 20 yards per reception and really opening up the offense. He gave fantasy owners (and Texans fans) a scare when he tapped his hammy after a long catch, but he returned, finished the game and appears to have come out none the worse for wear. Heading into the stretch run Fuller rates as a solid WR3 with weekly WR2 upside.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is active against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller hasn't played since Week 7. He returns as a high-risk, high-reward play worthy of being used as a flex option.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring), who is a game-time decision for Thursday night against the Colts, is expected to play. Fuller brings a deep element to this offense, but he's been out since Week 7 and the Texans offense as a whole has struggled in his absence. He was injured in the last matchup with the Colts, catching just one pass for six yards. Against a Colts Defense that doesn't usually allow many big plays over the top, Fuller will be a boom/bust WR3 at risk of limited snaps if he returns. His return would be great news for quarterback Deshaun Watson, while Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee would likely rotate playing time in the slot.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 12 versus the Indianapolis Colts, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller has been sidelined since suffering early in Week 7. He's been limited in practice each of the last two weeks since the team's Week 10 bye, so it's unclear just how much he'll be able to play Thursday night. Especially considering he wasn't consistently making a dent in fantasy box scores before going down, owners would be wise to sit Fuller this week and see how he looks before potentially starting him in Week 13 against the New England Patriots.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) is reportedly a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. We last saw Fuller against the Colts in Week 7, when he caught one pass for six yards before exiting. Fuller's best game of the year was in Week 5, when he caught 14 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns, but other than that game, he hasn't found the end zone this season. Boom-or-bust is the best way to describe Fuller at this point, and he's going to be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he does play Thursday.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) remained limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 12's game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller hasn't taken the field since leaving early in the Week 7 game against the Colts. He'll be a risky start if active, but fantasy managers are well aware of his upside.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) remained listed as limited on the team's practice report for Tuesday, Nov. 19. The report is an estimation as the team didn't practice Tuesday but will hold a walkthrough at night.
Fantasy Spin: In what has become an all-too-common theme for his career, Fuller's absence continues to be pushed back. He last played briefly in Week 7, catching his lone target for a six-yard gain. He can be dangled as trade bait.
Houston Texans S Mike Adams (concussion), CB Lonnie Johnson (ankle) and S Justin Reid (concussion, shoulder) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Nov. 19. LB Dylan Cole (knee), WR Will Fuller (hamstring), S Tashaun Gipson (back), OL Tytus Howard (knee) and CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) were limited. QB Deshaun Watson (ankle) practiced in full. The Texans will only hold a walkthrough Tuesday night, so the injury report is an estimation.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is calling wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) and cornerback Bradley Roby (hamstring) game-time decisions for Thursday's game against the Colts in Week 12. O'Brien said the team will find ways to test both players outside of practice on the short week. Fuller and Roby were both close to playing in Week 11 and should return on Thursday, barring any setbacks. Fuller would be a boom/bust WR3 against a Colts Defense that doesn't give up a ton of big plays. Fuller's return would drop Kenny Stills to No. 3 on the receiver depth chart and Keke Coutee to fourth. Roby's return is needed for a struggling and beat up secondary that just got torched by the Ravens.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 18. The Texans did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller was not able to play in the Week 11 game and probably will be a game-time decision this week. Fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next few days but may want to look for other options to use.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 12 versus the Indianapolis Colts.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller practiced on a limited basis last week, and the expectation was he was held out of Week 11 in order to give him a few more days to heal since Houston plays this Thursday. It would not be a shock if he goes, although fantasy owners can't be overly optimistic about a receiver who has struggled for WR3 production for most of the year.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) and cornerback Bradley Roby (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 11 against the Ravens. Both were expected to be game-time decisions on Sunday, but the Texans are taking the cautious approach with a Week 12 game coming early next Thursday. Without Fuller for another week, DeAndre Hopkins should be a high-end WR1 yet again, although he could be followed by Marlon Humphrey on Sunday. Kenny Stills will have WR4/flex value as a boom-or-bust deep threat for another week. Roby's absence is more bad news for a Houston secondary that has been beat many times deep this year.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) on Saturday, Nov. 16, was downgraded to out for Week 11 with a hamstring injury.
Fantasy Spin: There was early-week hope that Fuller would be able to return after a two-game absence and the team's bye week, but he wasn't able to do much in practice all week and now has been ruled out. DeAndre Hopkins and Kenny Stills should once again serve as the team's top two wideouts Sunday in Baltimore.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller will be a game-time decision this week, so his official status will not be known until the inactive lists are posted. He would be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense if he plays and could be benched if fantasy players have better options available.
Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) and cornerback Bradley Roby (hamstring) will be game-time decisions for Week 11 against the Ravens. However, they could both be held out until the team's Thursday night matchup next week against the Colts. Fuller would resume his role as the team's No. 2 wideout and push Kenny Stills to the slot if he returns this Sunday. Fuller makes for a boom/bust WR4/flex if he makes his return to the field, while Stills would be even more unattractive as a WR5 in deeper leagues. Stills is realistically only playable if Fuller misses another game. Roby's presence would help a troubled Houston secondary that is giving up plenty of big plays through the air. Avoid Houston's defense regardless of whether Roby returns.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to be a game-time decision in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller has been sidelined since Week 7 and was limited in practice in his return to practice this week, making it likely he is on the doubtful side of questionable. With an important AFC South matchup coming up against the Indianapolis Colts on a short week in Week 12, it provides the Texans even more incentive to sit Fuller. As such, owners should not count on Fuller returning this weekend.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring), S Tashaun Gipson (back, wrist), CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) and OT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable for Week 11 versus the Baltimore Ravens. LB Dylan Cole (knee) and OL Tytus Howard (knee) returned to a full practice Friday, Nov. 15, and have been removed from the injury report.
Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Spin: Fuller appears to be on track to play in Week 11, but fantasy players should check the inactive list for his official status. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues because of his big play potential.
Houston Texans LB Dylan Cole (knee), WR Will Fuller (hamstring), S Tashaun Gipson (back, wrist), OL Tytus Howard (knee), CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) and OT Laremy Tunsil were limited in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Nov. 14.
