Hopkins & Fuller expected to play Week 2 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Will Fuller (hamstring) are expected to play against the Titans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins' status was never in doubt. Fuller missed the opener and remained limited in practice this week, so that hammy is still a concern. He's a risk/reward WR3 for Week 2. Fuller's return is good news for QB Deshaun Watson.

Texans WR Will Fuller is making "steady progress" from his January sports hernia surgery, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. Fuller has resumed running and should be a full-go when training camp opens. He's missed 22 games through 4 NFL seasons but has been a difference-maker when healthy. 2020 is a contract year for Fuller.

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.

Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. He was limited in practice all week, and the Houston Chronicle reported that Fuller won't be back to 100% until he has time to recover this offseason. He's a risk/reward fantasy play today.

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 Palmer hears that Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is expected to play against the Chiefs on Sunday "unless anything crazy happens between now and game time." Fuller was limited in practice all week, and the Houston Chronicle notes that he's "not expected to be 100% until he has time to rest and recover this offseason." He's a risk/reward fantasy play that we'd only use in DFS tournaments.
