Houston Texans number two wide receiver has the talent to have for a breakout season in 2019.
Houston Texans could send at least another wide receiver alongside DeAndre Hopkins at the Pro Bowl with Will Fuller. The fourth-year receiver from Notre Dame has been a productive player in the Texans offense since Watson was incorporated as the starting quarterback. Despite injuries restricting his availability on the field, Fuller has been a solid second wide receiver in the offense.
In the 17 games he has played with Deshaun Watson, Fuller has 60 receptions, 926 receiving yards, averaging 15.4 yards per reception, and 11 touchdown catches. He has shown the ability to stretch the field vertically and beat his defender for a potential game-changing play.
Fuller is currently working his way back to football shape after tearing his ACL against the Miami Dolphins in 2018. Fuller was off to a good start in his third season with the Texans after starting seven of the first eight games this past season.
He finished with 32 receptions, 503 receiving yards, and four touchdown receptions. Fuller was 15 receptions and 122 receiving yards shy of matching the career numbers that he posted in his rookie season. He was on pace to break the 1000 receiving mark as a receiver for the first time in his career, and join the 18 other wide receivers who went for a 1000 receiver yards or more.
Fuller is on pace to be back before the start of their season opener against the New Orleans Saints on the national spotlight on Monday night football, and could be back for the latter part of the preseason.
