Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) said he hopes to receive some playing time this preseason so he can knock off some of the rust.
Huddle Up: Fuller miss a majority of the 2018 season because of the torn anterior cruciate ligament. Fuller has played well when healthy and likely will have a solid role in the passing game again this season. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is expected to be completely recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in time to play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Huddle Up: Fuller missed the entirety of spring workouts and figures to be limited at best early in training camp, but he will be roughly 10 months removed from surgery by the time the Texans visit the Saints on Sept. 9. Of course, his biggest challenge will be staying on the field - something he has struggled to do as a pro. He's a high-end WR3 who owners need to have a backup plan for, as he has missed 17 of a possible 48 games in his three-year NFL career.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is fully anticipated to be ready for the Texans' regular-season opener, according to general manager Brian Gaine. 'Everything is trending in the right direction,' Gaine said Thursday, April 19. 'Everything is looking good.'
Huddle Up: Fuller has produced 13 TDs in 31 games, but the question remains his health as he's missed a combined 17 games over his first three seasons. Value him as a low-end WR3 for the time being.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) will be at 10 months removed from tearing an anterior cruciate ligament when Week 1 begins. In the opinion of HoustonTexans.com's Drew Dougherty, he'll be 'stunned' if Fuller isn't on the field for Week 1.
Huddle Up: As recently reported, Fuller has a shot at being ready for training camp. The timeline for Week 1 puts him behind the typical nine-month pace, suggesting he should be ready in advance of the season-opening week. He hasn't played a full slate in his career, and Houston keeping Fuller healthy via managed reps will be a factor to consider when targeting him in fantasy drafts. He's a strong WR2 when at 100 percent but should be drafted as a third or flex.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) could be ready for training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said Houston feels 'really good' about where Fuller is in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Fuller has missed 17 games in his three-year career, but he's been effective when on the field. If he's full go by training camp and avoids any setbacks, he deserves consideration as a WR3 with obvious risk.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: DeAndre Hopkins, Demaryius Thomas and Keke Coutee comprise a formidable trio that can produce in Fuller's absence. You're starting Hopkins every week with Thomas holding low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 value and Coutee serving as a flex.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament in the next week and expected to miss the next six to nine months, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The fact he is able to have the surgery so soon after the injury indicates he did not have significant swelling in his knee, which is a good sign and should mean he will be ready well in advance of training camp next season. From a fantasy perspective, DeAndre Hopkins should be locked into nearly 10 targets per week, while Keke Coutee should assume Fuller's old role. While Coutee may lack Fuller's straight-line speed, he was a feared deep threat in college and should be a strong WR3 the rest of the way.

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) suffered a torn ACL on Thursday, Oct. 25, against the Miami Dolphins, head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Friday. Fuller will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Fuller has been a fantasy stud when healthy the past two seasons -- including Thursday's five-catch, 124-yard, one-TD showing -- but staying healthy has been an issue as he'll have played only a combined 17 games in these last two seasons come the end of the 2018 campaign.

Prior to his injury, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) caught five passes for 124 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 8 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: It was Fuller's best game of the season, but if initial reports are correct it could prove to be his last one. Wait for official word from the team before taking action, but it wouldn't hurt to start checking your waiver wire.
