Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Fuller has missed 27 career games through 5 seasons. He has a history of soft tissue (hamstring) injuries.
  • Last January, Fuller underwent offseason groin surgery. He missed the final 5 games on a PED suspension. He’ll serve the rest of his suspension in Week 1 of the upcoming season.
  • When healthy, Fuller was electric. He ranked 8th among WRs in PPR points per game (17.2). He hit 100 yards in 5 of 11 outings.
  • Fuller was extremely efficient alongside Deshaun Watson with 16.6 YPC and a 70.6% catch rate. He added a career-best 2.28 yards per route run and 5.4 YAC per reception.
  • Signing a 1-year deal worth $10.6 million, Fuller adds much-needed speed to Miami’s WR corps. Last year, Tua Tagovailoa earned a decent 82.3 grade from Pro Football Focus on deep passes.
  • Only 10% of Tua’s passes traveled 20+ air yards, though. For comparison, Drew Lock (16%) Tom Brady (14.9%) and Aaron Rodgers (14.6%) ranked at the top of the list.
  • With 6th overall pick Jaylen Waddle joining the squad — plus an improved O-line — look for this deep passing game to grow this fall.
  • With DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki also filling the depth chart, target upside (and consistency) profiles as a negative here. Current projections have Fuller at 96 targets, adding extra importance to his deep ball performance and efficiency.
  • With Tua a full season removed from hip surgery, we’re optimistic that he takes a step forward following a below average rookie year.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

The 2020 season turned up a breakout for Fuller, who tallied career highs in catches (53), yards (879) and TDs (8). He dodged his usual injury issues, only to get handed a 6-game ban for PED use. He’ll finish that suspension in Week 1.

Upon returning, Fuller will see heavy outside snaps on a much-improved Miami offense. There simply isn’t much room for target growth, and it’s clear that Fuller will experience a QB downgrade. Mix in the injury history, and he’s not someone we’re chasing with a Round 6/7 ADP.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller has been placed on IR with his broken finger. He'll miss at least the next 3 weeks. Between his continued durability issues and a struggling Miami offense, Fuller is a drop candidate in standard-sized fantasy leagues.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller is considered "week to week" with a broken finger suffered in Sunday's loss to the Colts, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's obviously a concerning injury for a guy who uses his hands for a living. Fuller can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues. It's been a nightmarish start to his Miami tenure.

Update: HC Brian Flores confirmed that Fuller is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bucs.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller suffered a hand injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Colts and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Fuller has been ruled out.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller (chest, elbow) isn't listed on the final injury report. After missing Wednesday's practice, he was limited on Thursday and a full-go on Friday. It doesn't look like we need to worry about the injuries, but Fuller is a fringe fantasy option with Jacoby Brissett under center.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller (chest, elbow) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a shot to play vs. the Colts this weekend -- although Fuller is a shaky fantasy play at less than 100%.
