2. Will Fuller is the real deal
Having Will Fuller on the Houston Texans offense makes him a perfect fit with fellow wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins this season, because with Hopkins usually taking the top-notch coverage, Fuller can take advantage of the opposing defense like he has the past two weeks.
During Sunday’s loss, one of the few bright spots for the Houston Texans was the play of Fuller with his second consecutive 100-plus-yard receiving game at 101 yards on five receptions and one touchdown. In two games this season, Fuller has amassed 13 receptions for 214 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 16.5 yards per reception.
When the Texans drafted Fuller in 2016 with the 21st overall pick, they did well in selecting the perfect complement to Hopkins. Hopkins not only helps Fuller, but Fuller helps Hopkins as well, because eventually teams are going to have to put more focus on Fuller.
For an offense that isn’t very exciting, the Texans have exciting players on the offense, and Fuller is climbing up the ladder of importance with this franchise. Watching him grow as an NFL receiver has been exciting the past two games, and his performance against the Giants on Sunday is just the continuation of what could be an excellent career.
