We've always said if Fuller could stay healthy, he would be a Fantasy stud, and he proved it for 11 games in 2020 -- before missing the end of the year with a PED suspension that will carry over to the first week of the 2021 season. That didn't scare the Dolphins off from adding him in free agency on a one-year prove-it deal, and it shouldn't scare you off from targeting him as a potential No. 3 Fantasy WR. Miami could be a very good landing spot for Fuller, who might be the No. 1 option for a passing attack who could take a big step forward with Tua Tagovailoa in Year 2. He'll obviously need to stay healthy, but Fuller played like a No. 1 Fantasy WR in 2020, and he has that upside in Miami, too. If you get him as your No. 3 wide receiver in the sixth or seventh round, consider yourself lucky.
Coach Brian Flores considers Fuller (foot) "day-to-day" and hopes to have him back at practice "as quick as possible," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Fuller participated in Miami's first practice of training camp, but he's since missed three days due to a foot injury. Flores said the oft-injured speedster is "getting rehab and working to take care of [his body]." After averaging a career-high 16.6 yards per reception through 11 games in Houston last season, Fuller linked with the Dolphins on a one-year pact, setting him up for a pivotal role as Tua Tagovailoa's top downfield weapon. Given his importance to Miami's offense, the team has every reason to be cautious with Fuller and make sure that there's no risk of injury aggravation when he returns to the field. Even if fully healthy, though, a suspension will force Fuller to spend Week 1 on the sideline.
The injury that sidelined Fuller on Saturday has been clarified as a foot injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Fuller's day-to-day as he waits for his foot to heal. There's little reason for the Dolphins to rush the oft-injured speedster back at this point.
Fuller (undisclosed) is day-to-day and won't practice Saturday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. Coach Brian Flores clarified that Fuller is day-to-day rather than week-to-week with his undisclosed injury, so the wide receiver's likely to heal up well before Miami's Aug. 14 preseason opener. Once the regular season rolls around, Fuller will have to sit out Week 1 due to a suspension, even if he's healthy enough to play.
Fuller (suspension) remains absent from practice Friday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Fuller is dealing with an unspecified minor injury. He reportedly had a chance to practice Thursday but will now wind up sitting for at least two days.
Fuller (undisclosed) isn't practicing Thursday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. The wideout reportedly is bothered by a minor injury, with coach Brian Flores even suggesting Thursday morning that Fuller might be able to practice through it. The Dolphins ultimately held him out, freeing up first-team reps for the likes of Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Lynn Bowden, in addition to rookie first-round pick Jaylen Waddle. Meanwhile, Fuller, DeVante Parker (undisclosed) and Preston Williams (foot) are all unavailable for practice.
