Dolphins WR Will Fuller will not play against the Bills on Sunday due to a personal issue, HC Brian Flores said. We'll see whether Fuller is able to make his Dolphins debut in Week 3. Jaylen Waddle and DeVante Parker will again operate as Miami's top 2 WRs this weekend.

Update: Flores added that there's currently no timetable for Fuller’s return.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller (leg) was on the practice Tuesday for the 1st time since July 28. We still don't know much about his injury, but the team reportedly expects him to be ready come Week 2, after serving the final game of his suspension. We'll continue to keep an eye on him.

The Dolphins expect WR Will Fuller to be ready to make his debut in Week 2, after serving the final game of his suspension, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Fuller has been sidelined since late July with what's believed to be a leg injury. But Jackson hears that it's "not serious." Fuller still comes with elevated risk in fantasy drafts until we see him back on the field.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller remains sidelined with the injury he suffered on July 28. It's believed to be a foot injury, although we haven't heard much from the team on the situation. We're still a month away from the start of the season -- and Fuller is suspended for Week 1 -- but this is starting to become a concern. Fuller, of course, has had durability problems throughout his career. We just nudged him down the WR rankings.

Per the Miami Herald, Dolphins WR Will Fuller left the team’s first training camp practice with an apparent foot injury. He’s undergoing tests to gauge the severity. There’s no major cause for concern right now, especially with Fuller suspended for Week 1. Still, his lengthy injury history says we should pay extra close attention here. Fuller’s currently coming off the board as the WR44 in FFPC best balls.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker will open training camp on the PUP list. No word yet on the specifics, but it’s a rough start nevertheless for a WR with his injury history. Miami brought in serious target competition this offseason — Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle — making Parker a long-shot for WR3 value.

The Dolphins selected Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle with the 6th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Waddle turned in a super impressive true freshman season back in 2018, hauling in 45 balls for 848 yards and 7 scores on a loaded pass-catching corps. His 848 yards ranked 2nd to only sophomore Jerry Jeudy -- ahead of sophomore Henry Ruggs, sophomore DeVonta Smith and junior Irv Smith. Waddle took a step back as a sophomore, finishing with a 33-560-6 line. But he got off to a monster start this past year, racking up 25 catches for 557 yards and 4 scores over the first 4 games. Waddle actually led DeVonta Smith in yards and matched him in TDs during that span. He went down with a fractured right ankle in game #5, though, and was clearly limited when he returned for the National Championship vs. Ohio State. Waddle is reportedly recovering nicely from that injury and didn’t miss time with any other injuries across his 3 college seasons. The Fins are getting the most explosive WR in this class. Waddle has supersonic speed, routinely blowing by DBs on deep balls and crossers. He also flashes plus contested-catch ability, despite going just 5’9 and 180 pounds. There are shades of Tyreek Hill to his game. No excuses for QB Tua Tagovailoa, who now has former college teammate Waddle plus Will Fuller, DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki.

The Dolphins have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Will Fuller. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's worth $10 million, with "significant upside." There's clearly a "prove it" aspect to this contract for a player who lost multiple games to injury every season before 2020, when he spent the final 5 weeks suspended for a positive PED test. Fuller will have 1 more game to serve at the beginning of the coming season. After that, he'll battle DeVante Parker to be Miami's top wideout. Fuller could stay near the 6.8 targets per game he averaged in Houston last season. We'd bet on a drop in efficiency with the move from Deshaun Watson to Tua Tagovailoa, though. Fuller looks like a solid-to-good pick anywhere in WR3 range of current best-ball drafts. His arrival obviously increases the upside for the 2nd-year QB. It also dramatically lowers the ceiling for Preston Williams in his 3rd season.

Texans WR Will Fuller announced that the league has suspended him for 6 games under the PED policy. With just 5 games left in the regular season, that means the start wideout is done for the year. Fuller currently leads Houston by 1 reception and 160 yards. The team just waived Kenny Stills, who cleared waivers today. So bringing him back could be an option. Otherwise, Brandin Cooks becomes the clear lead wideout. Randall Cobb just landed on IR with a toe injury, so he's out for at least 2 more games. Keke Coutee appears in line for a big role bump, with rookie Isaiah Coulter the next man up. The practice squad also includes 3 wideouts with some NFL experience: Damion Ratley, Chad Hansen and Artavis Scott. Losing Fuller undeniably lowers the fantasy ceiling for QB Deshaun Watson, though he'll remain among our top 12 the rest of the way. It also leaves targets potentially available for the TEs and RBs. We'll see how this situation develops over the next few days, with a Week 13 clash with the Colts looming.

The Texans are closing their facility on Thursday after a positive COVID test. We'll see who tested positive -- and then if any close contacts also need to quarantine. Sunday's Texans-Jaguars game remains on track to be played for now.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He gave us a scare when he was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday. But Fuller put in a full workout on Friday and is good to go for this weekend’s juicy matchup vs. the Vikings. He’s a virtual must-start this week.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien isn't worried about WR Will Fuller, who was added to Thursday's injury report with a hamstring. "Will is going to be fine, wanted to give him a little rest," O'Brien said Friday, adding that Fuller will practice today. Keep him in Week 4 fantasy lineups for now. Ideally, Fuller is a full-go today.

Texans WR Will Fuller was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. We never like mid-week additions to the injury report -- especially when it's Fuller and a hamstring. We'll see what he does in Friday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Texans WR Will Fuller isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report. It's a surprise after he was limited by a hamstring injury in the Week 2 loss to the Ravens. Fuller is on track to play against the Steelers this weekend -- and today's news suggests that we shouldn't be too concerned with the hammy.

WR Will Fuller was limited to just 63% of Houston's offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to a right hamstring injury. He finished without a single target. Fuller, of course, has a lengthy history of hamstring trouble. We'll need to keep a close eye on his practice participation this week.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (quad) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's opener against the Chiefs. He returned to a limited practice on Wednesday after missing Tuesday's workout. We'll get Cooks' game status by 7 pm ET tomorrow, but fantasy owners should try to keep him out of Week 1 lineups. Cooks' absence would boost the target projections for WRs Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson expects WR Will Fuller to "ball out" this season. "Will's going to be one of the best receivers in the league," Watson said. "He came back a lot stronger, a lot faster. Will's really good, very confident in himself and what he did over the offseason. I'm very confident in what he can do. We all are as an organization and as a team." Fuller says he's 100% recovered from January sports hernia surgery and spent the offseason working on "mechanical things" to help prevent injuries going forward. Any durability risk is more than baked into his WR34 ADP. Fuller should smash that price tag when he's on the field this year.

Texans WR Will Fuller is making "steady progress" from his January sports hernia surgery, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. Fuller has resumed running and should be a full-go when training camp opens. He's missed 22 games through 4 NFL seasons but has been a difference-maker when healthy. 2020 is a contract year for Fuller.

The Texans have traded the 57th pick in the NFL Draft to the Rams for WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th-round pick in 2022. Cooks joins the trio of Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb atop Houston's WR depth chart and should be the best bet to lead the group in targets. His departure from the Rams leaves room for WR Josh Reynolds to capture more playing time -- barring a significant WR addition in the upcoming draft. The Rams also cut Cooks' playing time in the 2nd half of last season, preferring to get more TEs on the field.
