Saints signed WR Corey Fuller off the Lions' practice squad.

It's unclear if this is an indication the Saints suffered a significant Week 15 injury at wide receiver, but it's something to file away. Fuller was a sixth-round pick of the Lions in 2013 and had been hanging around ever since.

Lions waived WR Corey Fuller.

Fuller was activated from the reserve/PUP list two weeks ago. A 2013 sixth-rounder, Fuller has spent the past four years on the fringes of the Lions' 53-man roster.

Lions activated WR Corey Fuller (foot) from the reserve/PUP list.

TE Khari Lee was waived in a corresponding roster move. A fourth-year sixth-rounder, Fuller has 18 career grabs. He'll try to carve out a role on special teams.

Lions WR Corey Fuller (foot) will open 2016 on the reserve/PUP list.

It will cost him at least the first six regular season games. Fuller broke his foot at OTAs. He has 18 catches for 288 yards through three NFL seasons.

Lions placed WR Corey Fuller (foot) on the active/PUP list.

Fuller has been shut down since June surgery. He isn't a lock to return in camp. Even when healthy, Fuller is on the outside looking in for a roster spot.

Lions WR Corey Fuller had surgery to correct a foot injury on Wednesday.

A timetable for his return has not been established. Already on the roster bubble before this injury, Fuller would be in serious trouble if he is not ready for training camp.

MLive's Kyle Meinke reports Lions WR Corey Fuller is "firmly on the roster bubble" heading into the offseason program.

A bigger receiver with good speed, Fuller followed a 14-212-1 campaign in 2014 by winning the No. 4 receiver job in camp last year. He was barely involved in the offense early, however, and was eventually passed on the depth chart by T.J. Jones, who coach Jim Caldwell talked up last week. With Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, T.J. Jones, and Jeremy Kerley in the fold and another receiver likely on the way in the draft, Fuller may have to beat out T.J. Jones for a roster spot.

Lions tendered exclusive rights free agent WR Corey Fuller.

With Calvin Johnson considering retirement, Fuller provides depth and will compete for a sub-package role. The Lions also tendered RB George Winn, DT Khyri Thornton, LB Brandon Copeland, S Isaiah Johnson, and C Braxston Cave.

Lions WR Corey Fuller "continues to impress" in camp.

The test for Fuller will be the preseason, not practice, but he's zeroing in on No. 3 duties behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. It's a fancy title, but not a fantasy-relevant position behind two target hogs. A nice size/speed prospect, Fuller is worth one of your final roster spots in Dynasty leagues.

Lions WR Corey Fuller is "consistently making plays in practice."

Per writer Tim Twentyman, Fuller has "made at least one great play in every practice," and typically on a "variety of different routes." A 2013 sixth-rounder, Fuller caught 14 balls last season. He's in the driver's seat for No. 3 duties, but is going to lack for targets behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

Corey Fuller is expected to win the Lions' No. 3 receiver job.

While it sounds like a nice job to win, the Lions' third receiver won't be a reliable fantasy option. Detroit is expected to use the fullback and plenty of two-tight end sets with Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron, leaving Fuller mostly useless outside of extremely deep leagues. He'd do well to see 30 targets.

The Lions are "very high" on rising third-year WR Corey Fuller.

A 2013 sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech, Fuller took a big step forward as a sophomore and runs 4.4 at 6-foot-2, 200. While he probably won't make a fantasy dent behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, Fuller could conceivably fill a Robert Meachem or Devery Henderson-type clear-out role in ex-Saints assistant Joe Lombardi's offense. Fuller is a long-striding vertical streaker.

Lions WR Corey Fuller said his offseason goal is to improve his route-running.

Fuller, a former track star that is still raw as an NFL wideout, caught just 14 passes for 212 yards with one touchdown as an NFL sophomore. He's going to have to expand his route tree to separate from the likes of T.J. Jones, Ryan Broyles and Jeremy Ross. We're not expecting it to happen, leaving Fuller as a sub-package reserve once again in 2015.
Tue, Jan 27, 2015 09:59:00 AM

Lions WR Corey Fuller secured 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in Sunday's Wild Card Round loss to the Cowboys.

Fuller came up with a key play in the fourth quarter, breaking off a 21-yard gain down the middle on a snap where Detroit was backed up into its own end zone. His other reception went for five yards on a checkdown. Fuller is 24 years old with plus size and speed, but lacks an ability to consistently beat man coverage, and isn't particularly adept at winning in crowds. We see him as a career sub-package receiver and not a future starter in the pros.
