Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller contained in Week 17 loss.

Fuller caught two passes for 17 yards. The second-year receiver started the year on IR, but he quickly broke out with Deshaun Watson at quarterback until the rookie's torn ACL derailed Houston's season. Fuller finished the year with 28 receptions for 423 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games, but he flashed major potential for 2018 and beyond. The former first-round pick should be an upside WR2/FLEX option in fantasy drafts next summer.

Will Fuller (knee) is out for the rest of today's game.

The second-year receiver's injury-plagued season is now over. Fuller appeared in nine games, catching 26 passes for 406 yards and seven touchdowns. Looking ahead to next season, Fuller should have an ideal quarterback situation with Deshaun Watson, so he'll have very good upside later in 2018 fantasy drafts. Hopefully his knee issue isn't too serious, though, and we'll update you when more information is available.

Will Fuller held to one reception in loss to Pittsburgh.

It went for 10 yards. Fuller hasn't been a fantasy option since Deshaun Watson went down. He'll finish his season next Sunday against the Colts.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V catches all five targets in Week 15.

Matched up with a great Jaguars secondary, this was a solid performance for the second-year receiver, as he made the most of his opportunities. Fuller had five receptions for 44 yards in the loss to Jacksonville. Next week he has a matchup with a Steelers team that's given up some big plays in the passing game as of late, so Fuller is in FLEX consideration in the first week of fantasy championships.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V catches three passes in Week 14.

After a three-game absence because of a rib injury, Fuller returned against the 49ers and gained 26 yards on his three receptions. With a matchup against the Jaguars up next, you're probably going to need a touchdown or big play for Fuller to deliver solid fantasy value in Week 15.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) was a full participant in today's practice.

After missing the last three games, the second-year receiver is set to return this Sunday against the Niners. Fuller does offer upside as a big-play guy for the Texans, but there are probably better options out there for Week 14.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) was limited in today's practice.

After missing the last three games, the second-year receiver should be getting close to a return from his rib injury. A full practice would be ideal, especially because the Texans probably won't rush Fuller back if he's not 100%.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) is not expected to play this week.

This isn't a surprise, but Texans head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed the expectation is that the second-year receiver will miss another game. He might be officially ruled out here shortly.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) did not practice today.

It's still early in the week, but Fuller is in danger of missing another game while he deals with his rib issue. Realistically, the Texans' playoff hopes may be finished after Monday's loss to the Ravens, so the team probably isn't going to rush their second-year receiver back into action.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) remains out for the Texans.

Fuller was actually ruled out during the weekend, so he won't be out there tonight against the Ravens. Consider him week-to-week still, as he wasn't able to practice all week.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) did not practice today.

The Texans play on Monday night, so this was the first official practice of the week, but there isn't a ton of optimism regarding his status for the game. We'll update his practice status over the next couple of days.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (ribs) is officially out for Week 11.

Fuller is dealing with cracked ribs and didn't practice all week, though he's not expected to miss too much more time with the injury. Consider the second-year receiver questionable to face the Ravens on Monday night in Week 12.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller has cracked ribs, according to Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport says the damage is "not extensive" and Fuller might only miss one game. So it sounds like Fuller is out for Week 11 against the Cardinals, but we'll keep an eye on his practice status throughout the week.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller leaves game with apparent rib injury.

Fuller took a huge shoulder to the rib area from Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner. If it's broken ribs, Fuller probably won't be back today. He had two receptions for 15 yards before leaving.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller falls back to earth in first game without Deshaun Watson.

Fuller caught two passes for 32 yards in a 20-14 loss to the Colts. He also continued to operate as the team's punt returner, but that obviously won't make up for the value he lost when his starting quarterback went down for the season. After looking like a high-upside WR2 with Watson in the lineup, Fuller is now just a risky FLEX play. He gets the Rams next week.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V scores two more touchdowns in Texans' loss.

The second-year receiver caught five passes for 125 yards and two touchdown against the Seahawks, as he started things off with a bang on his 59-yard deep touchdown to start the game, then he added another touchdown on a nice back-shoulder type of catch in the end zone. Fuller has been simply unbelievable since returning from his collarbone injury, as he has seven touchdowns in four games on just 13 catches while looking like a big-time playmaker for his team. Maybe you have a lot of great options for your fantasy lineup and can't play him, but you might as well ride Fuller next week against the Colts if possible.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller scores again in Week 6 win.

Fuller caught two passes for 62 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The speedster now has five touchdowns in just three games, as he's shown a good connection with Deshaun Watson since returning from a broken collarbone. Chances are that Fuller's touchdown streak will end next week in Seattle, but Richard Sherman and company have struggled against faster, smaller receivers in the past. Still, there are probably more reliable fantasy options.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller scores twice in Week 5 loss.

After scoring twice in his season debut, Fuller kept it up against the Chiefs, turning both his receptions into scores. They were from 48 and nine yards out, and he also rushed once for five yards. Fuller is a great compliment to DeAndre Hopkins, but his touchdown pace is almost certainly going to slow down. Still, he's worth a look as a high-upside FLEX option against the Browns next Sunday.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V plays great in 2017 debut.

After missing the first three weeks with a broken collarbone, Fuller made his return and it could not have gone much better. The second-year receiver caught four of six targets for 35 yards and two touchdowns—one a laser from 11 yards out and the other a perfect back-shoulder throw from ten yards out. Despite it being his first game with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, the two appear to have a great connection already. Fuller also drew a 45-yard pass interference penalty to set the Texans up at the one-yard line and chipped in a four-yard carry. If he's on the waiver wire, Fuller looks like he'd be a good pickup.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller is active for the Texans.

He'll officially make his 2017 debut after missing the first three games of the season. With Braxton Miller inactive, it looks like Fuller will have a big role immediately, though he's a little risky to insert into fantasy lineups in his first game back.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (collarbone) is expected to play this week.

Fuller has been practicing for the last couple of weeks, and Texans head coach Bill O'Brien says he thinks he'll be "ready to go" on Sunday. It's quite the recovery for the second-year receiver, who was expected to miss 2-3 months with his collarbone injury suffered in the preseason. The lightning fast Fuller will be a welcome addition to the lineup and adds a speed element they've been missing the first three games of the season. He's difficult to trust in his first game back, but he's someone worth a pickup if you have a bench spot.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

The Houston Chronicle reports Fuller will miss 2-3 months after breaking his collarbone in practice today.

Fuller will undergo surgery and hopefully be back by the beginning of October for the Texans, as they will need him in a competitive AFC. The deep threat being off the field will open up more playing time for Braxton Miller and Jaelen Strong, but neither is expected to be a reliable fantasy contributor across from DeAndre Hopkins. As for Hopkins, this probably won't affect him too much, because while he might see more attention from opposing defenses, he could also run more deep routes during Fuller's absence. Fuller isn't worth taking up an IR spot on your bench for a month.

Texans receiver Will Fuller broke his collarbone, according to Adam Schefter.

The second-year receiver is out indefinitely. Clavicle injuries usually vary depending on the severity, but the estimated timeline is probably about 4-6 weeks or more. This obviously puts Fuller in jeopardy for the start of the regular season, which is bad news for the Texans. Houston might rely on DeAndre Hopkins even more if Fuller is out for the start of the year. The team might also look into bringing in another receiver via a trade or the waiver wire later in the preseason. This is unfortunate news for Fuller, who's looking to grow and take the next step in his second season but will now miss valuable time in the preseason.

Will Fuller V drops long touchdown in playoff loss.

Fuller had three receptions for 16 yards against New England. His drop was on a dime from Brock Osweiler on a deep ball in the endzone that went through Fuller's arms. Fuller got off to a great start in his rookie season, then battled some injuries. He should be a popular breakout pick for next season.

   

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V had three catches for 24 yards in Week 17.

The speedy rookie got off to an extremely fast start to the regular season, but battled some injuries and finished the regular season with 47 receptions for 635 yards and two touchdowns, with a punt return touchdown. He'll play in the Wild Card round next weekend.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V catches three passes for 39 yards in Texans win.

Fuller's best game of the season was against his next opponent, the Titans. He'll be a FLEX option in that game.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V had four catches for 42 yards in Sunday's 21-20 win.

Fuller was targeted a solid eight times, and the whole offense got a boost with Tom Savage replacing Brock Osweiler. With DeAndre Hopkins seeing 17 targets in the game, the Bengals should give him plenty of attention of Christmas Eve, making Fuller a high-upside FLEX next week.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V caught two passes for 22 yards in Houston's 22-17 win over the Colts.

The rookie is not a good fantasy option as long as Brock Osweiler is quarterback, but remains a great hold in dynasty leagues. The Texans face Jacksonville in Week 15.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Fuller V catches five of six targets in Week 13.

He had five catches for 59 yards in the snowy conditions of Lambeau Field. Fuller may be getting closer to full health after missing time with leg injuries. Fuller isn't a terrible FLEX option next week against the Colts.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller V had four catches for 60 yards in Sunday's loss.

Fuller was the clear #2 receiver after being limited or out in recent weeks, but it's hard to be productive as long as Brock Osweiler is quarterbacking for Houston. The rookie is just a weak FLEX in a plus matchup next week against the Packers.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller catches one pass in loss.

He barely did that, as he almost dropped the 17-yard pass over the middle. Fuller was looking like an absolute stud to start his NFL career, but he’s really slowed down and can probably be dropped in 10-team leagues as he deals plays through a hamstring injury. The rookie shouldn’t be in lineups next week versus San Diego. His long term career prospects remain bright, though.

Will Fuller | Texans WR

Will Fuller (knee) is inactive today vs the Jaguars.

It's a big loss for the Texans. The Texans will likely rely on their running game and DeAndre Hopkins, with Fuller's element of stretching the field out of the equation.
