Texans' Will Fuller: Locked in for fifth year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have exercised their fifth-year option on Fuller (knee), John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The option costs $10.162 million for 2020 and is guaranteed for injury only. Fuller is rehabbing from an ACL tear he suffered Oct. 25, with general manager Brian Gaine recently saying he expects the speedy wideout to be ready for Week 1. The jury is still out on Fuller's value to the Texans, as his excellent production while playing with Deshaun Watson -- 783 receiving yards and 11 TDs in 11 games -- has been overshadowed by a series of injuries (17 missed games in three seasons). It's also worth noting that Fuller did next to nothing when he was forced to play with a lesser quarterback, whereas DeAndre Hopkins mostly remained productive. In any case, the Texans hope to have Fuller back on the practice field at some point during training camp.

Texans' Will Fuller: Optimism abounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brian Gaine reiterated Thursday that Fuller (knee) is expected to be ready to go for Week 1, Sarah Bishop of ESPN reports.

Gaine said Fuller has been rehabbing in Houston all offseason and the receiver has yet to suffer a setback in his recovery from a torn ACL. Head coach Bill O'Brien expressed a similar level of optimism earlier this month and even went as far to suggest Fuller could be back on the field, in some capacity, for training camp. The Notre Dame product will be roughly nine months removed from surgery by that time, but there remains no firm timetable for his exact return to action and it wouldn't surprise anyone if the Texans keep their big-play threat under bubble wrap for most of the summer.

Texans' Will Fuller: Could return for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bill O'Brien recently indicated that while there isn't a firm timeline for Fuller (knee) to return to the field, the receiver has a chance to be ready for training camp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Fuller will be roughly nine months removed from tearing the ACL in his right knee by the time training camp kicks off this summer. O'Brien has expressed optimism about the receiver's recovery numerous times this offseason, but the coach has also stated his concern with Fuller's ability to stay healthy in the future. While those concerns certainly aren't without merit considering Fuller has missed between two and seven games in each of his three professional seasons, the 2016 first-rounder at least appears to be on track to return to full health well before the start of the 2019 campaign.

Texans' Will Fuller: Recovery 'on a good track'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bill O'Brien is encouraged by Fuller's recovery from a torn ACL in his right knee, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports. "I think he's doing really well," O'Brien said. "He's on a good track."

Fuller suffered a premature end to his third season at roughly the same time as Deshaun Watson's own ACL tear from 2017 -- Oct. 25 for the former versus Nov. 2 for the latter. Watson was healthy enough to play by preseason Week 2 last August, but such injuries have a variety of recovery timelines. Considering Fuller has suited up for just 31 of a possible 48 games in his career, O'Brien's words should be taken with a grain of salt. If he can rejoin DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) sooner than later, though, Fuller's career marks of 14.6 YPC and 8.4 YPT should help him produce as the dynamic Watson enters his third campaign.

Texans' Will Fuller: Faces challenge to stay healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans need to figure out how to keep Fuller (knee) and Keke Coutee healthy in 2019, Drew Dougherty of the team's official website reports.

The young wide receivers played just seven games apiece (including playoffs) during the 2018 campaign, with the rookie battling a nagging hamstring injury and Fuller suffering a torn ACL on Oct. 25. The latter is a far greater concern for 2019, as Fuller faces a lengthy rehab process that may stretch into training camp or even threaten his Week 1 availability. Heading into his age-25 season, the oft-injured, 180-pound wideout has piled up 783 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in the 11 games he's played with Deshaun Watson at quarterback. It's hard to find a WR group with more upside than Houston's, though only DeAndre Hopkins is a sure thing among the bunch. It won't come as any surprise if the Texans invest in the position this offseason, even though they already have their ideal three-wide alignment (Hopkins-Fuller-Coutee).
