WR - HOU
WR Will Fuller has fully recovered from groin surgery, per Texans’ HC Bill O’Brien.
Fuller underwent groin surgery in January, and is now fully recovered. “We’re excited about having him for 16 games,” said O’Brien. “He looks as good as he ever looked.” Fuller has dealt with multiple injuries over the years and yet to play a full 16 game season. With DeAndre Hopkins traded to the Cardinals, Fuller has the opportunity to be the Texans No. 1 WR. He could flourish in Houston’s offense as Deshaun Watson’s top target, but has had trouble with injuries throughout his career. Fuller will compete with newly acquired Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb for targets. The 26-year-old hauled in 49 receptions for 670 yards and three touchdowns across 11 games in 2019. Fuller will look to stay on the field and is currently 36th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Regarding Texans WR Will Fuller’s rehab from double groin surgery in January, offensive coordinator Tim Kelly said, “All the conversations I've had with Will have been encouraging. He's been good in the meeting room, he's been great with his position coach, John Perry. So, we're encouraged by that.”
Fuller has been a full participant in the Texans virtual off-season program while also working out on his own on the side. With DeAndre Hopkins now in Arizona, Fuller has a legitimate chance to become a clear-cut WR1 for the Texans, even with the off-season additions of Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb. Coach Bill O’Brien chimed in on Fuller’s status, saying, "He is doing great. Since we've left, I've been in touch with him a couple of times. He's working out. He looks good. We're excited about Will. We're excited about the 2020 Will. We feel like he's really working." When healthy, the speedster fifth-year WR can be a game-changer. In 11 games last season, he caught 49 balls for 670 yards and three TDs. Fuller is currently ranked #35 in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings, making him a WR3 in most leagues. He’s got as much upside as any WR3 in the NFL if he can remain healthy this season.
Texans coach Bill O'Brien says Will Fuller (core muscle surgery) "is doing great".
Fuller underwent the surgery in January but is expected to make a full recovery. The oft-injured wideout has more opportunity to establish himself as the number one option in the passing game following the trade of DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona. However, the Texans have also brought in Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks to form a crowded receiver corps. Obviously, health has been Fuller's biggest obstacle thus far in his career.
Texans' wide receiver Will Fuller had recently underwent sports hernia surgery to take care of a groin injury that had been lingering since the regular season.
Fuller has truly been a difference maker for the Texans when he is present on the field. During this season alone, Houston was 8-3 when Fuller was healthy and 2-3 when he missed time. He caught 49 passes for 670 yards and three touchdowns this season. He will be entering his fifth year in 2020 and hopes that he can make it through a season without missing time due to injuries.
Will Fuller secured five catches for 89 yards on eight targets Sunday in the Texans’ Divisional Round loss to Kansas City by a 51-31 score.
Fuller was a game-time decision as he is dealing with a groin injury but was able to play and was productive. The fourth-year receiver continues to be plagued with injuries and has never been able to play a full season which hurts his fantasy value.
