Fuller recorded a career-best 82 tackles (64 solo) and added two interceptions and a forced fumble in 2018.
Fuller started a combined 12 games in his first two years with Washington, but those plans changed when he was moved to Kansas City last offseason. The 23-year-old cornerback was moved into a starting role for the Chiefs opposite Steven Nelson, allowing him to up his totals from a season ago. He only collected two interceptions compared to four in 2017, but there's a good chance that figure increases next season given the playing time he's slated to receive in the final year of his rookie deal.
Fuller was listed as questionable with the thumb injury, but he was a full practice participant all week so his availability is unsurprising. The 23-year-old will slot into his usual starting role at cornerback in the Chiefs' porous secondary.

Fuller was a full participant in practice all week, and appears to be trending towards suiting up versus the Raiders after sitting out last week's loss to the Seahawks. If Fuller is able to take the field, he'll draw his usual start at right cornerback.

Fuller missed Week 16's game versus the Seahawks. The Chiefs secondary is one of the worst in the league, but it struggles even more without Fuller in the fold. The third-year pro has 70 tackles, 12 pass breakups and two interceptions this season. The Chiefs still have work to do to secure a No. 1 seed, so the team doesn't have an incentive to sit Fuller for purely precautionary measures.
Fuller underwent thumb surgery a week ago, and will remain sidelined Week 16 as he manages his recovery. As long as Fuller is unable to go, expect Tremon Smith to draw the start at right cornerback.
