Will Fuller Fantasy Football News 2018

The Texans added Texas Tech WR Keke Coutee in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Coutee is 1 of the most electric receivers in this year’s class, with 4.4 speed and loads of wiggle. He averaged 15.2 yards per catch over his 3-year college career and enjoyed a breakout 93-1,429-10 2017 campaign. Coutee ranked 10th in yards per route run among all draft-eligible receivers last year, according to Pro Football Focus. The knocks against him? He’s coming from a pass-friendly, non-pro-style offense. And he goes just 5’10, 181 pounds with sub-5th percentile arm length, wingspan and hand size. Coutee’s big-play ability should translate to the pros if he’s deployed properly, though. He has a shot to slide in as the Texans’ #3 WR behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. Houston is a building a strong WR corps for QB Deshaun Watson.

Texans WR Will Fuller will undergo "minor" knee surgery, according to insider John McClain. He's expected to be "full go in a few weeks." Fuller was banged up throughout his 2nd NFL season, breaking his collarbone in August, fracturing his ribs in November and then hurting his knee in the season finale. It at least sounds like he'll be ready for the offseason program.

Texans WR Will Fuller suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's finale against the Colts and will not return. He finishes with 28 catches for 423 yards and 7 TDs in 10 games. All 7 of Fuller's scores came from QB DeShaun Watson. He'll be a WR3 with upside in 2018 fantasy drafts as long as Watson is ready for Week 1.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) practiced all week and is not listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing the past 3. Despite the plus matchup, he’s just a WR3 flier with Tom Savage at the controls. WR Braxton Miller (concussion) is out.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Thursday that it "looks good" for WR Will Fuller (ribs) to play against the 49ers this weekend. He's missed the past 3 weeks but will step back in as Houston's #2 WR. With Tom Savage under center, though, Fuller is a risky WR3 play.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Bill O'Brien said earlier in the day that he's "hopeful" to get Fuller back for this weekend's game against the 49ers. He'd be a boom/bust WR3 if he's able to play in that one.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) is out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. Bruce Ellington gets another game as Houston's #2 WR and is a viable WR4 in fantasy lineups vs. Tennessee's 26th-ranked WR defense.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) is out for Monday night's game against the Ravens. He wasn't able to practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 13. Bruce Ellington will again serve as Houston's #2 WR after posting a 6-63 line last week. The matchup is much tougher this time around, though, against Baltimore's 2nd-ranked WR defense.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien admitted Monday that he's "unsure" if WR Will Fuller (ribs) will be ready to return for Week 12. We'll keep an eye on his progress, but the situation is complicated by the fact that Houston plays the Ravens on Monday night. Bruce Ellington will be a low-end WR3 option if Fuller remains sidelined for that one.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. WR Bruce Ellington posted a 4-41-1 line last week and will now step in as the #2 WR in a plus matchup. He’s on the WR4 and DFS radar.

Texans WR Will Fuller suffered "cracked ribs" in Sunday's loss to the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But the damage is not extensive & he may just miss one game," Rapoport adds. These types of injuries tend to come down to pain tolerance. And a WR like Fuller doesn't take a whole lot of contact. We'll continue to monitor his status, but he obviously shouldn't be in your Week 11 fantasy plans.

Texans WR Will Fuller suffered a rib injury when he took a big hit in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Rams. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Fuller has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Texans WR Will Fuller (collarbone) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He’ll make his 2017 debut against the Titans on Sunday. Fuller can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups this week but is worth rostering in deeper leagues as a potential bye-week option.

Texans WR Will Fuller (collarbone) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to make his 2017 debut this weekend against the Titans. He's coming off an up-and-down rookie season and shouldn't be in fantasy lineups this week. But he has a shot to emerge as a spot starter when the bye weeks roll in.

Texans WR Will Fuller (collarbone) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He returned to practice this week, seemingly giving him a shot to play Week 4. Fuller is more of a waiver-wire watch-list guy than someone to run out and grab right now.

Texans WR Will Fuller (broken collarbone) returned to practice Monday, the team website reports. That seems to put him on track to get back into game action earlier than the 2-3 month return timeline assigned when he suffered the injury at the beginning of August. An active Fuller won't make for an exciting fantasy option in a shaky Texans offense. But his deep speed can only help QB Deshaun Watson. Houston's release of WR Jaelen Strong on the day Fuller returned also points to the team expecting him back soon.

Texans WR Will Fuller is undergoing surgery on his broken collarbone and is expected to miss 2-3 months, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain. The short end of that timetable would have him back around Week 5. The long end would keep him sidelined until Week 9. Fuller is no longer worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues. (He might be worth a look at the end of best-ball drafts.) WR Jaelen Strong is the leading candidate to take Fuller's spot on the outside, while slot receiver Braxton Miller could also see a boost in volume. Neither guy is a particularly attractive fantasy target, though, in Houston's run-heavy offense. WR DeAndre Hopkins will continue to dominate the action.

Texans WR Will Fuller broke his collarbone in practice on Wednesday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He's considered to be out "indefinitely." Featuring Braxton Miller, Jaelen Strong and Wendall Williams, the Texans are thin behind Fuller and #1 target DeAndre Hopkins. We wouldn't chase any of the depth guys in fantasy drafts.
