| Will Fuller's 2016 rookie campaign started with a bang and ended with a resounding thud. After storming out to three double digit fantasy games over the first month, Fuller couldn't get off the sinking ship that was the Texans passing attack. He failed to score more than six fantasy points in a single game the rest of the way. As a starter playing opposite of a player frequently getting double teamed, Fuller should take a step forward in his second pro season. Known for being an excellent route runner and having great speed, Fuller needs to work on catching the football. Five drops and a catch rate of 51-percent do not instill much confidence in quarterbacks. Fantasy owners should be very cautious about how big of a step Fuller can take within the current offensive system. The passing game should be improved but the coaching staff isn't about to let Tom Savage or Desahun Watson throw the ball all over the field with a top-rated defense keeping the team in games. As a result, he is best valued less as a potential breakout player and more as a WR 4/5 in 12+ team leagues.
Update 8/2/17: Fuller broke his collarbone and is expected to miss 2-3 months. He will go undrafted in most redraft leagues but could be valuable waiver wire pickup in-season.

FFToday's Take: Expect Bruce Ellington to see increased snaps in Fuller's absence. Ellington will be an interesting dart throw for owners in deep leagues hurting at the wide receiver position, especially with Patrick Peterson expected to shadow DeAndre Hopkins.

FFToday's Take: Fuller was only targeted 3 times yesterday as he left in the 2nd quarter with a rib injury. He may miss a date with Cardinals in Week 11. Bruce Ellington saw 8 targets for the second week in a row.

FFToday's Take: Fuller adds an element of speed to the Texans' offense it doesn't otherwise have, and owners only need to go back to last September to see how much of an impact he can have. Unfortunately, his hands are questionable at times, and the mix of a rookie quarterback (Deshaun Watson) and typically conservative play-calling figures to put a cap on his statistical ceiling. However, he is worth adding as a high-upside WR4 in most leagues.
