Will Fuller has the potential to make many Houston Texans news headlines this season.

There is an opportunity in front of Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller for the 2020 NFL season. If he’s able to make the most of that opportunity, well, he’s going to make a lot of the Texans news in 2020.

We all know about DeAndre Hopkins and his greatness being gone, and we all know the Texans news headlines that trade has made since March. Now it is time to look to the present, and Will Fuller is a part of current group of Texans wide receivers that have to be greater than what Hopkins was, and Fuller will be looked upon more now that at any other previous point in his career.

Looking at the “Big 4” wide receivers on the Texans, they are Fuller, Brandin Cooks, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb. Each player brings something different to the Texans, and for Fuller his speed and big-play ability is at the top of the list in what he can provide to Houston’s offense.

Will Fuller in his first four seasons has never caught for 700 or more yards in a season, and he’s never had a 50-catch season either. Those numbers aren’t low because of his talent level, because Fuller is one of the more talented players in the entire NFL. Those numbers aren’t low because of playing time, because Fuller, when on the roster, gains plenty of playing time.

The issue with Fuller and his four previous NFL season is his health. Fuller has all of the talent in the world to lead the wide receivers on the Texans roster, but the news for this Texans receiver is he’s hurt more than he is on the field.

When at the top of his game and not injured, Will Fuller will make plenty of Texans news headlines. Two seasons ago, Fuller made one of the best plays of his his career, a 73-yard touchdown reception against the Miami Dolphins. That great play was his last for that season, as he tore his ACL on the touchdown catch.

Just this past season, Fuller played in Just 11 games, which he had a career-high 49 receptions for a career-high 670 yards and three touchdowns. He averaged 13.7 yards per game in 2019 while playing alongside Hopkins, but now, if healthy, Will Fuller has a real chance to double those numbers, only if he can stay on the football field.

Next are “3 Bold Predictions” for Fuller, as the wide receiver is sure to makes plenty of Texans news headlines in 2020.
