|It may surprise some fantasy owners to learn that in 11 games last season for the Texans, Will Fuller averaged more fantasy points than his former teammate DeAndre Hopkins and fantasy darlings DK Metcalf and Justin Jefferson.
He had five games of 100-plus receiving yards and a touchdown in all but four of his performances before having his season cut short by a PED suspension.
Now that he is on a new team and does not have the benefit of playing with Deshaun Watson, Fuller is currently ranked well below how he finished last season and well behind Hopkins, Metcalf, and Jefferson - three players likely to go in the second round of most drafts.
It also doesn't help Fuller's value that he is going to miss the first game of the year while serving the final game of his PED suspension.
However, the upside of monster games from Fuller is still there despite his change in teams, especially with opposing defenses forced to account for DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle. For this reason, he likely is more attractive in best ball. However, he still is an excellent option as a WR3, especially in plus matchups against weak opponents on the schedule like Jacksonville, Cincinnati, and his former team.

Suffered a setback with his hamstring injury

|Brian Flores said WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) suffered a setback this week in practice and is doubtful to play Sunday vs. Texans. No Will Fuller either.
Tua Tagovailoa has a banged up finger on his throwing hand suffered vs. Bills, but Flores is optimistic that Tua will play. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Parker returned from his hamstring injury in Week 8 posting a 8-85 line against the Bills on 11 targets. With Parker out, the Dolphins will once again likely focus on Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki as their main pass catching weapons. Both are viable plays in a good matchup against Houston.
