Fuller generated minimal production for the second straight game, although his 16.5 YPC was actually his second-highest of the season. The 24-year-old opened the season by getting into the end zone in each of the first three games, and although he's now failed to score in two consecutive contests, his elite speed renders him a high-upside play on a weekly basis. He'll have a potentially tough time boosting his numbers Week 7, however, as the Texans face the Jaguars in a divisional matchup.
Fuller (hamstring) does not carry a Week 6 injury designation after practicing in a limited fashion all week.
The same applies to DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Keke Coutee (hamstring), meaning that the Texans will have their top three pass catchers available Sunday against the Bills. Meanwhile, Deshaun Watson (chest) is listed as questionable for the contest, but we'd be surprised if he didn't play. Fuller is coming off a subpar Week 5 in which he caught just two of three targets for 15 yards, but now that he's further removed from the hamstring issue that had him viewed as a game-time decision last weekend, Fuller will look to rekindle his TD chemistry with Watson, assuming he plays.
Fuller (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Fuller wasn't able to advance beyond limited practice participation last week, but still gained clearance to play in Sunday's win over the Cowboys, finishing with two receptions for 15 yards on three targets. He's started the current week in the same fashion, but with no indication that he suffered a setback with the hamstring, he should gain clearance to play again this weekend at home versus Buffalo. Perhaps more worrisome than the health of Fuller's hamstring is the emergence of rookie receiver Keke Coutee, who has out-targeted Fuller by a 22-8 margin over the past two games.
Fuller (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
The Texans also listed fellow receivers Keke Coutee (hamstring) and DeAndre Hopkins (foot) as limited, but it's suspected that none of the trio are in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Bills. Fuller played 77 of the Texans' 80 offensive snaps in their 19-16 overtime win over the Cowboys in Week 5, hauling in two of his three targets for 15 yards.
Fuller caught two of three passes for 15 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over Dallas.
Fuller entered the game with the questionable tag due to a hamstring injury, so it was encouraging that he was deemed available relatively early in the day -- earlier than fellow wideout Keke Coutee, who also was dealing with a hamstring concern. The end result was Coutee getting seven targets and scoring a touchdown, while Fuller undoubtedly ruined the day for many fantasy owners, who gambled on him for Sunday's late game instead of rolling with a less risky option earlier in the day. Fuller's lack of targets may mean he was not 100 percent healthy, so that's something we'll follow in the coming days.
