Will Fuller is expected to have a bigger role this season.
Fuller had seven touchdowns in 10 games last year but was limited to 50 targets (28 catches). "Will’s a huge part of what we’re trying to do," WR coach John Perry said. "He creates problems with the way he runs routes, gets behind defenders. He just continues to work on the little things of his trade, which is catching the ball over his shoulder and coming back in the air." Fuller didn't have any drops in 2017 after making five as a rookie. His biggest concern is durability — missing 8-of-16 games the past two seasons. Playing in a Deshaun Watson offense, Fuller is primed for a third-year breakout if he stays healthy. Jun 9 - 12:41 PM

Will Fuller is undergoing "minor" knee surgery, and is expected to be full go in "a few weeks."

However "minor" Fuller's operation is — it sounds like a scope — it's a fitting end to an injury-marred sophomore campaign. Fuller broke his collarbone in camp before dealing with a ribs issue for most of the regular campaign. He was limited to 10 appearances, and has now missed eight games in two years as an NFLer. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound speedster needs to make increased durability an offseason focus.
Jan 2 - 4:21 PM

Will Fuller caught both of his targets for 17 yards in the Texans' Week 17 game against the Colts before leaving with a knee injury.

Fuller battled three separate knee injuries during an up-and-down sophomore season that got off to a late start because of a broken collarbone during the summer. Fuller appeared in 10 games, catching 28 balls for 423 yards (15.1 YPR) and seven touchdowns, with all seven of those scores coming in four games with Deshaun Watson at quarterback Weeks 4-8. He had a long catch of just 29 yards the rest of the season when Tom Savage and T.J. Yates were forced back under center. Injuries are a concern for Fuller, but he showed massive upside with Watson at quarterback. The Texans may look for additional receiver help behind DeAndre Hopkins in the offseason.

Will Fuller caught just 1-of-4 targets for 10 yards in Monday's Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

Fuller's magical run paired with Deshaun Watson in the middle of the season feels like an eternity ago as he's managed just nine catches for 80 yards since returning from a rib injury three weeks ago. Fuller's season will come to a close in Week 17 against the Colts.

Will Fuller caught 5-of-5 targets for 44 yards in the Texans' Week 15 loss to the Jaguars.

Fuller was limited to short catches by the Jaguars, who put clamps on the Texans' pass catchers as expected. With Tom Savage or T.J Yates at quarterback, Fuller's fantasy owners will be hard pressed to trust him as more than a boom-bust WR4/flex option in Week 16 against the Steelers.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 04:38:00 PM

Will Fuller hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 26 yards in the Texans' Week 14 loss to the 49ers.

In his first action since Week 10, the Texans looked to get Fuller involved early, targeting him three times on the first two drives. Unfortunately, that was about it as he was not able to haul in a deep shot in the second half and did not see really any other work outside of that. With T.J. Yates perhaps under center for a trip to Jacksonville next week, Fuller will not be a starting option.

Will Fuller (ribs) is active for Week 14 against the 49ers.

This was fully expected after he was able to get in full practices Thursday and Friday. Fuller is less exciting with Tom Savage under center, but he is still a big-play threat who should see a good target share with the Texans' receiver corps banged up. That makes him an upside WR4/FLEX play. Houston declared Alfred Blue (concussion), Braxton Miller (concussion), OT Julien Davenport (shoulder), LB Jelani Jenkins (concussion), WR Cobi Hamilton, OLB Ufomba Kamalu, and NT Chunky Clements inactive for Week 14.

Will Fuller (ribs) was removed from the Week 14 injury report.

He'll return Sunday after missing the last three weeks. Fuller is locked into heavy targets with Braxton Miller, Bruce Ellington (hamstring, IR) and C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion, IR) sidelined, but Tom Savage limits his upside.
Fri, Dec 8, 2017 06:47:00 PM

The Texans expect Will Fuller (ribs) to return against the 49ers.

"It looks good for Will to be able to play," coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday. Fuller, who has seven touchdowns in six games this season, has missed the past three weeks. Balling out with Deshaun Watson at quarterback, Fuller is a volatile WR3/4 with Tom Savage at the controls. The duo hooked up just four times for 47 yards in Weeks 9 and 10.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 03:02:00 PM

Will Fuller (ribs) practiced again on Thursday.

Fuller is aiming to return this week following a three-game absence. He's impressed with seven touchdowns in only six games this year and gets a good on-paper matchup against the Niners in Week 14, though having Tom Savage under center limits his upside.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 01:43:00 PM

Will Fuller (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Fuller seems likely to return Sunday against the Niners after sitting out the last three games with cracked ribs. It's an exploitable matchup, but with Tom Savage under center, Fuller is just a boom-or-bust WR3.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 07:14:00 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien is "hopeful" Will Fuller (ribs) will return for Week 14 against the 49ers.

Fuller has missed the last three games. His return could come at a good time with Bruce Ellington (hamstring, IR) and C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion, IR) sidelined. A big-play threat, Fuller's value takes a hit with Tom Savage starting.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 04:55:00 PM

Will Fuller (ribs) is inactive for Week 13 against Tennessee.

Fuller was ruled out early in the week. He's yet to resume practicing and will miss another game. Also inactive for Houston are OL Kyle Fuller, OLB Latroy Lewis, OT Julie'n Davenport, NT Chunky Clements, and OLB Brennan Scarlett.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 11:40:00 AM

Will Fuller (ribs) is out for Week 13 against the Titans.

He's still dealing with cracked ribs. With Fuller sidelined, DeAndre Hopkins should see another monster workload Sunday against a Tennessee squad that let up 57 points when these faced each other earlier this year. Bruce Ellington, who has drawn seven-plus targets in four straight, will also be involved.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 02:19:00 PM

Will Fuller (ribs) has yet to resume practicing.

All signs point toward Fuller missing his third straight game. To date, injuries have cost Fuller seven of a possible 27 NFL games. Sunday would be the eighth.
