Basic Stats Preseason Player 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.

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.

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.
