Will Fuller Injury Updates | Shark Bites

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.

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 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 had sports hernia surgery this week after aggravating his groin injury in the loss to the Chiefs, according to the Houston Chronicle. Fuller initially injured his groin in Week 16 and then sat out the Wild Card round win over Buffalo. He's headed for unrestricted free agency in March.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that Texans WR Will Fuller (groin), WR Kenny Stills (knee) and TE Darren Fells (hip) will all be active for today's game against the Chiefs. Fuller will remain risky in his return from a multi-game injury. QB Deshaun Watson, however, will have his near-full group of weapons. TE Jordan Akins (hamstring) looks like the only regular piece missing. His absence helps Fells, who saw a season-high 7 targets in the Week 6 meeting with Kansas City.

NFL Network's James Palmers hears from "multiple sources" that Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is a "real long shot" for Saturday's game against the Bills. He's listed as questionable after a limited week of practice and was labeled a game-time decision by HC Bill O'Brien. Fuller's injury was originally expected to cost him 3 weeks, though, so it's not a surprise that he's not expected to play. We'll get his official status around 3 pm ET on Saturday. Kenny Stills will operate as Houston's #2 WR if Fuller is out.

Texans WR Will Fuller is "likely" to miss 3 weeks with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So he'll miss Sunday's regular-season finale and should be considered doubtful for the Wild Card Round. We'll see about Fuller's status beyond that. Kenny Stills will step in as Houston's #2 WR in the meantime.

The Texans expect WR Will Fuller (hamstring) to return for today's game against the Texans, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. This agrees with the previous report we saw from Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. There will still be re-injury risk to Fuller but also lots of upside in a matchup that favors passing more than rushing.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Will Fuller isn't expected to play today against the Broncos. Fuller is nursing a recurring hamstring injury that rendered him questionable for the game. If he sits, WR Kenny Stills would likely see more playing time and spend more of it on the outside. That grows his upside for a matchup that should find Denver's clear top corner, Chris Harris, shadowing DeAndre Hopkins all day. The Broncos' other outside CB, Isaac Yiadom, grades out as easily the poorest of the team's top 3 in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus.

Texans WR Will Fuller suffered a hamstring injury early in Sunday's game against the Colts and is questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Update: Fuller has been ruled out.

After watching the first few days of camp, the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson believes Texans WR Will Fuller has made a "full recovery" from last year's torn ACL. "He remains one of the most dangerous deep threats in the game," Wilson writes. Fuller has had trouble staying healthy through 3 NFL seasons, but he's averaged 54.5 yards and .65 TDs per game over the last 2. Only 13 WRs scored more PPR points than Fuller over his 7 outings from Week 2 to 8 last year. If he's truly back to pre-injury form, Fuller should return nice value at his current WR33 ADP.

Texans WR Will Fuller is on track to be ready for the 2019 opener after last October's torn ACL. "Everything has gone well, no setbacks," GM Brian Gaine said. "Everything trending in right direction. Looking good." Fuller will be over 10 months removed from the injury when the season kicks off. He'd ideally be able to get some work in during training camp and the preseason, but we'll monitor his progress as we move toward the summer. Fuller has appeared in just 17 games over the past 2 seasons but averaged 54.5 yards and .65 TDs per outing.

The Texans believe WR Will Fuller tore his right ACL in Thursday night's win over the Dolphins, according to multiple sources. A Friday MRI will confirm the diagnosis. It'd be a season-ending injury for Fuller, who missed 8 games across his first 2 NFL seasons. His absence would leave Houston with Keke Coutee, Vyncint Smith and Sammie Coates behind DeAndre Hopkins on the depth chart. Coutee is worth adding in all leagues if he was dropped with his latest hamstring injury. He's tentatively expected back for Week 9.
