The definition of a boom-or-bust player, as Fuller has posted WR1-type numbers in 23.8 percent of his games, which ranks 30th among wide receivers since 2000. The issue is that he's posted WR3 or better numbers in just 33.3 percent of his games, which ranks 94th (right behind Donte Moncrief) during that time. The loss of Deandre Hopkins should provide him with a more stable target floor, though Brandin Cooks is arguably a better football player than Fuller and will steal a lot of those targets. The chemistry between Fuller and Deshaun Watson has to be taken into account, but so does the injury history. Ideally, you draft him as a WR4 that you can rely on as a WR3 while healthy.It was odd to see Samuel finish as a top-30 wide receiver last year, because it didn't feel that way throughout the year. He saw just 81 targets and had just two games with more than eight targets. The 49ers offense is going to be run-heavy, but Samuel will be the go-to guy when they do drop back to pass. He's also included in the run-game, as evidenced by his 159 rushing yards and three touchdowns last year. It's tough to see him having a true breakout season, especially when he suffered a broken foot during offseason training. The rumor is that he may not even be ready for Week 1 of the season. When a pass-catcher has foot surgery in the same calendar year, it usually means bad things for fantasy purposes. You may want to wait until 2021 to invest a redraft pick on the young receiver.

 Samuel suffered a broken foot (a Jones fracture, near the mid-point of the foot) on June 16th and had surgery that same day. He's been given a 10-week timetable for his return to action - six weeks for the fracture to heal plus four weeks to gradually return to playing shape - which would put him back to full speed in late-August and on track to start the season with the 49ers. But the 49ers have since come out and admitted that Samuel almost certainly won't be ready for the season, so your best-case scenario is that you're drafting a wide receiver who is coming off a significant injury and will miss the first few games. Despite Samuel's upside, that's just not someone fantasy managers should consider drafting until one of the very last rounds.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Will Fuller is one of those guys whose weekly ranking is always going to be higher than his ADP was. He's being drafted as a WR3 but has always had WR1 upside when healthy. The issue is that he hasn't been healthy. He has also failed to bring any value when not reaching his upside. Boom-Bust is his middle name. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's hard to go wrong drafting Fuller at his current ADP of WR35. Fuller could be the WR1 in this offense led by Deshaun Watson and he's shown the potential of being a top-10 WR for fantasy football when he's on the field. Unfortunately, Fuller just has not been able to stay healthy, so he's a risky pick. If you can get Fuller to be a FLEX player in your lineup, where you don't need to rely on him every single week, it could pay off in a big way this season. As long as he's on the field, Fuller has top-12 upside.Unfortunately, Samuel recently suffered an injury that puts his availability for the beginning of the NFL season in jeopardy. He now has more competition at the position for targets too with Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Taylor back in the fold. Samuel's a WR4 with upside right now, in my opinion.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
If Will Fuller can ever stay healthy for a season he'll be a sensational fantasy pick-up, especially in Best Ball. Fuller once again looked sensational on limited targets when on the field but battled the injuries that have always held him back. After four injury-ravaged seasons, it's time to acknowledge that when you draft Will Fuller, you're going to lose him for parts of the season and he'll fail to finish a lot of games, torpedoing that week for you. On the upside, well, there's a lot of it and he is rather consistent if (and it's a big if) he's healthy. He's worth the gamble, especially in PPR, in the middle rounds.Deebo Samuel had an impressive though inconsistent debut season, relying on a number of breakout weeks and a surprising amount of very efficient rushing plays. Now heading into the 2020 with a broken left foot, he's a very risky proposition given his limited upside in this run-first offence. He's no longer a sleeper pick and profiles as the kind of guy you should avoid drafting unless you have a lot of bench space.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Deebo Samuel suffered a broken foot on Tuesday (6/16) during a throwing session with teammates in Nashville and will be having surgery. It is being reported as a Jones fracture, and that he should be able to be on the field early in the season. That doesn't add up for me, Jones fractures are NOT good or easy recovery, in fact they often need a second surgery from what I understand. I'm staying away.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
I keep moving him up with Hopkins and his targets out of Houston.A broken foot has me dropping him well outside of my top-30 WRs.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
 No 13 WR in FAN PPG from Weeks 10-17 - SF not a pass-heavy attack, but will likely open up a little more for in 2020, with Deebo and TE Kittle hogging those targets
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
My ranking of Will Fuller will never have to do with his stats, those are what get him drafted year after year. His inability to stay on the field is what makes him a bust year after year. Waiting for him to prove me wrong. Another deep threat with injury concerns and an inability to catch the ball (twice as many dropped deep balls as the next player). Gets a lot of love for never playing 16 games, going over 700 yards, or receiving more than 100 targets. Was bringing in Kenny Stills not enough of a warning that the team can't trust him to stay healthy?A little worried about the ceiling anyone can have on the passing side in the way this current offense is set up. They've gone from to 2nd, 20th, and 29th in passing the last 3 years while moving up from 22nd, to 11th, and then 2nd in rushing attempts. This is the offense that Shanahan has built and I'm not sure anyone besides Kittle will lead the team in targets and Kittle barely got over 100 this year. His YAC ability will have to pave his way to success. The Pros: Sanders AVG 5.3 TGT/GAME with the 49ers over 10 weeks. During that time, Deebo was WR18, scoring less than 12 fantasy points only twice in that span. As much as Aiyuk might be a pest, to give him the same target volume as what Sanders earned would put him at 3 more targets his rookie year than what Deebo logged. Bringing Aiyuk in was more indicative of the other supporting WRs and exit of Sanders. A sneaky rushing base also helps boost Deebo's base. And while maintaining a strong run to pass ratio is what any team wants, we can't assume they will be bottom 10 in the league in pass ATT in 2020 again.
