    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller said he's planning on trying to gain some weight for the upcoming season. 'I think the most I've ever weighed is probably about 190, and I felt pretty good,' he said. 'That was around the combine. If I can get to that weight and keep my speed, that would be perfect.' Fuller is currently listed at 180 pounds.

    Huddle Up: Fuller started strong in his freshman campaign a season ago, registering more than 80 receiving yards in three of his first four contests, but fell off drastically from there, as he reached only 60 yards just once after that. The 2016 first-round draft pick has a lot of talent, but inconsistent quarterback play may hinder his potential in his second year.

  • Posted: 1/15/2017 4:57pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller dropped a potential touchdown in a 34-16 loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 14, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller is only going to improve and the drop wasn't the difference in the game.

    Huddle Up: Fuller showed big-play ability in his rookie year, but drops were a problem. He offers upside as a WR4 heading into 2017, especially if Houston can upgrade its quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 4:01pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted four receptions for 42 yards in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Fuller started out his rookie season like a ball of fire, but injuries and the proverbial rookie wall appear to have slowed him to a crawl. He is only worth a look as a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 9:52pm ET

    Houston Texans rookie WR Will Fuller posted just two catches for 22 yards in the Week 14 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Fuller started off like a ball of fire, but he has hit the rookie wall and is nothing more than a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams at this point.

  • Posted: 12/8/2016 6:23pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has cooled after a hot start, but he remains a potential flex option because of his big-play speed.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 6:15pm ET

    Houston Texans rookie WR Will Fuller posted five receptions for 59 yards in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Fuller appears to be healthy again, and he has nine grabs for 119 yards over the past two outings. Still, he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2, and he hasn't visited the end zone since Week 4. He should be a viable WR3 in most fantasy formats against the Indianapolis Colts and their shoddy pass defense in Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 3:47pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Fuller's 60 yards last week were his most since early October. That's a good sign, but you just can't trust him with Brock Osweiler throwing the ball. Starting Fuller this week is a risk despite the great matchup.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 10:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller posted four receptions for 60 yards on six targets in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Fuller didn't have a great game, but that could all change in Week 13 against a beaten up Green Bay Packers secondary. Treat him as more of a WR3 for that matchup.

  • Posted: 11/23/2016 3:37pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has really sputtered after a promising start to his rookie campaign. Of course, much of his demise has been due to injury. While Fuller does have a decent matchup against the San Diego Chargers, he hasn't posted an attractive stat line since Oct. 2. Start him at your own risk.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 9:51pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) posted just one catch for 17 yards in the Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has tailed off after a hot start, as he has had difficult staying healthy. After 211 yards and a touchdown on nine grabs through his first two games he has managed just 17 catches for 178 yards and one score over his past six outings. Treat him more as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 4:22pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was limited during practice this week because of a knee injury but should receive his normal workload against the Oakland Raiders. He has posted only 49 yards in his last three games and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2016 12:01pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 11. Head coach Bill O'Brien said he feels good about Fuller's chances to play against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Fuller probably will be a game-time decision, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Owners may want to consider other options for their lineups because Fuller will be playing on Monday Night Football and there will be limited replacements available if he is ruled out.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 3:11pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: Fuller is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 11, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He will be a risky option since the Texans play on Monday Night Football. Owners probably should look to use other players in their lineups and avoid Fuller even if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 12:00pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (leg) is expected to be a game-time decision for Monday Night Football in Week 11 versus the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Bill O'Brien stated he feels 'pretty good' about Fuller's chances of playing, but Houston's struggling passing game and Oakland's improving secondary are enough reasons for owners not to take the risk. C.J. Fiedorowicz is the only Texans pass-catcher worthy of a start in most leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 9:15am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is not active for Week 10's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: WRs Braxton Miller and Jaelen Strong, along with TE C.J. Fiedorowicz, could see additional targets in Fuller's absence, although Miller and Strong aren't great fantasy options. Fiedorowicz is worth considering as a low-end TE1 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 6:36am ET

    The Houston Texans are reportedly not optimistic that WR Will Fuller (knee) will play in Week 10's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, although he will participate in pregame workouts.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and is listed as questionable on the injury report. Owners should have alternate options available in case he is deactivated. However, if Fuller is active for Sunday's game, he is worth considering as a WR3 or flex option against a shaky Jacksonville defense.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 3:58pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 11, and he is questionable for the Week 10 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Fuller will be facing the Jacksonville pass defense which ranks sixth in the NFL, allowing just 217.6 yards per game with 12 touchdowns. Fuller is still a solid WR3 in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if active.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 5:46pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has been quiet in recent weeks, but he still has big-play potential and is worth a look as a WR3 in Week 10 against a porous Jacksonville defense.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 1:43pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (leg) is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Look for Fuller's practice status as the week progresses. If he practices early on in the week then he could very well be ready to play in Week 10. Brock Osweiler's erratic play does limit Fuller's ceiling, but the Texans play the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have allowed double-digit touchdowns to receivers this year.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 10:07am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (leg) did not take part in practice Monday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: While this could easily be the Texans choosing to give him some extra rest coming off a bye, it could also have something to do with the hamstring that caused him to miss Week 6. Brock Osweiler's struggles have torpedoed the rookie's fantasy stock, as the deep threat has only six catches for 49 yards over his last three games. Even if he does play in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he's going to be hard to start in fantasy given Houston's offensive struggles.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 9:37pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) posted four catches for just 22 yards on seven targets in the Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: Fuller entered the game with a hamstring issue, and it's uncertain if he was limited as a result of the injury. Brock Osweiler did not look downfield much, and he struggled with his accuracy, which also hurt Fuller's production. Going into Week 8 against the Detroit Lions Fuller should be treated as a WR3.

  • Posted: 10/22/2016 12:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Fuller should receive his normal workload this week despite the injury. He will be facing a tough Denver Broncos defense but should still be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 6:26pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Oct. 21.

    Huddle Up: Fuller is expected to play in Week 7, but with Denver's stingy secondary looming, he is a risky WR3.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 12:09pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) will play in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos after failing to log a snap despite being active in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: While Fuller's return is a good thing for the Houston offense, he returns against perhaps the league's best secondary, making him a low-end WR3 play at best. Better days are ahead for the rookie, however, as the Texans face the Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders over their next three games. Fuller could easily perform at a WR2 level in all three contests.

  • Posted: 10/18/2016 12:03pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) said he is feeling good, is ready to practice and is looking forward to playing the Denver Broncos in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately Fuller will be returning to one of the toughest matchups he'll have all year. The Broncos are elite against the pass, allowing just one touchdown to receivers through six games this season. Fuller isn't completely unstartable, but he's no more than a flex this week.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 10:42am ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 6 if his hamstring does not tighten up on him leading up to the game. He may be limited if he is active for the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Fuller will be able to play. Fuller will be a risky option for owners because his injury could affect his play. Owners may want to look for healthier options to use in their lineups.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 7:31am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 6's game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the most recent edition of the injury report. WRs Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller could see more targets in his absence but neither player is a great fantasy option at this point.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 2:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was listed as questionable on the team's injury report Friday, Oct. 14, after being limited in practice all week.

    Huddle Up: There's been nothing to suggest Fuller will be unable to go this weekend, and he'll have a juicy matchup awaiting him if/when he does. He's extremely likely to see a lot of Indianapolis Colts defensive back Patrick Robinson, who has struggled mightily in coverage and maybe somewhat limited against the Texans' rookie speedster. Fuller is a high-end WR3 with WR1 upside this week.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 3:33pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited in practice again Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Even so, this shouldn't affect his status for the team's Week 6 tilt with the Colts. Considering Indianapolis has been getting destroyed through the air with regularity this season, Fuller will have a little more potential than usual as a WR3, even if he's a little hobbled.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 4:49pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller managed just one reception for four yards in the Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Fuller was certainly in the game play, but an inefficient Brock Osweiler and a strong Vikings defense certainly changed that. He remains a WR3 in most fantasy leagues, just chalk this up as one poor outing.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 5:37pm ET

    Houston Texans rookie WR Will Fuller posted seven receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in the Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans. He also had a 67-yard punt return for touchdown in the third quarter, recording a speed over 21 mph according to NFL Red Zone.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has stepped right in and become a fantasy staple. He should be treated as a WR2 in most fantasy formats. He is especially valuable in formats which reward individual return yardage, too.

  • Posted: 9/17/2016 8:24pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller has been on head coach Bill O'Brien's radar since Fuller was in high school, and O'Brien said he knows Fuller is a resilient player who will rebound from a dropped pass or bad play.

    Huddle Up: Fuller had a big Week 1, and since O'Brien appears to trust him to work through rough patches, the rookie should be owned in all formats. The speedster is a high-risk, high-reward flex option against Kansas City in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 9:54pm ET

    Houston Texans rookie WR Will Fuller (hamstring) had five receptions for a game-high 107 yards and a touchdown in his regular season debut in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. He was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: Fuller did not show any ill-effects of the hamstring injury which limited him in practice until Friday. If he is on the waiver wire in your fantasy league it is a good idea to scoop him up immediately, as the former Notre Dame standout will be a hot pick-up this week across the board.

  • Posted: 9/9/2016 2:25pm ET

    Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 9. WR Will Fuller (hamstring), OT Derek Newton (hamstring), DE J.J. Watt (back) and LB Akeem Dent (concussion) fully participated in practice. Brown has been ruled out for Week 1, while the other players are not on the injury report.

    Huddle Up: Fuller could be a flex option in some deeper fantasy leagues, while Watt is an attractive option in IDP leagues.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 7:32pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has big-play potential, but the rookie was already a risky play, and a hamstring injury for a player who relies on his speed only raises more red flags. Leave him on the bench for Week 1.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 11:25am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) will be fine for Week 1, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has been limited this week because of the injury, but it appears he will be able to play in Week 1. Owners should consider him a risky option this week, but he could be a starting option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 10:18am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was not doing much during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Fuller's status over the next few days to see if he will play in Week 1. He is expected to have a solid role on offense this season, but owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups this week.

  • Posted: 9/7/2016 4:13pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Fuller is expected to be a deep threat for the Texans this season, so owners should monitor the situation to see if he will be limited in Week 1. Owners may want to keep Fuller out of their lineups until he is completely healthy.

  • Posted: 8/28/2016 7:26pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller had three catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 34-24 preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 28.

    Huddle Up: Fuller has shown flashes of his potential throughout the preseason, and he has the upside you look for in a late-round pick.

  • Posted: 8/20/2016 10:22pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller snared four balls for 73 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Fuller looked awfully sharp, but remember he was also facing one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Fuller will start out in the WR5 range for fantasy owners, worthy of a late-round flyer on draft day. However, he could very well move into the WR3 range by season's end if he stays healthy and Brock Osweiler can take a big step forward.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 9:08am ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller had one catch for four yards in a 24-13 preseason win over the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Fuller should hit his share of big plays as a rookie, but don't expect much consistency. Avoid him in standard formats. It's best to use him as an all-or-nothing play in daily games.

  • Posted: 6/26/2016 1:56pm ET

    The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with WR Will Fuller on a four-year, $10.2 million contract, according to a source familiar with the terms of the deal. All first-round contracts include a fifth-year option.

    Huddle Up: If he can show his buttery-hands issues are behind him, the first-round pick is the favorite to start opposite the elite DeAndre Hopkins. Until proven otherwise, though, in the Texans' new-look offense, Fuller is no better than a WR5 option in the majority of leagues.
