ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is "unlikely" to play against the Patriots today. "He wants to test it pregame first before making final decision," Schefter adds. We'll find out Fuller's official status by noon ET, but he's at risk of being limited and/or aggravating that hamstring injury if he plays. Fuller should be on fantasy benches for Week 1. His absence leaves Bruce Ellington as Houston's #2 WR. TE Ryan Griffin could also see a few extra looks, but WR DeAndre Hopkins will be the target hog.

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 (knee) has avoided the PUP list to open training camp. He tore his ACL on October 25 and was sidelined this spring. We'll see how much he's able to do in camp, but the Houston Chronicle confirms that Fuller is on track to be ready for Week 1. He ranked 14th among WRs in PPR points during his 7 games from Week 2 to 8 last season. Fuller was a volatile producer over that span, finishing 3 weeks as a top-10 WR but 2 outside the top 60. Consider him a risk/reward WR3 in fantasy drafts.

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.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien confirmed that WR Will Fuller suffered a torn right ACL in Thursday night's win over the Dolphins. He's done for the season. Fuller will have a little more than 10 months to get ready for the start of the 2019 campaign. We'll monitor his rehab this offseason.

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.
