27-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR

2021 Fantasy Outlook
After missing 22 games in four seasons, Fuller finally stayed healthy in 2020, though he missed the last five games anyway due to a PED suspension. Before that, Fuller was having a great year — 11.7 YPT (No. 1 among 70-target wideouts) and 16.6 YPC. He scored eight times in only 11 games and had four catches of 40-plus yards. At 6-0, 184, Fuller is slight but blazing fast (4.32 40), quick and explosive. He’ll ply his trade in Miami this year after signing with the Dolphins, but his six-game PED suspension from last year will spill into Week 1. He’ll compete with DeVante Parker and sixth overall pick Jaylen Waddle— as well as tight end Mike Gesicki — for targets, but Fuller is getting paid enough ($10.6 million) to ensure a significant role, at least for as long as he can stay healthy. Of course, Tua Tagovailoa’s development in Year 2 is also a big variable for Fuller and the Dolphins passing game. Read Past Outlooks

Set to make team debut Week 3
WRMiami Dolphins
September 20, 2021
Fuller (personal) returned to team facilities Monday and is expected to make his 2021 debut against Las Vegas in Week 3, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Fuller missed Week 1 due to a suspension and Week 2 because of a personal issue, but the 27-year-old speedster now looks primed to make his long anticipated debut in aqua, orange and white. After having also missed much of training camp due to a foot injury, Fuller may not immediately be called upon to handle an every down role for the Dolphins. Of course, it also wouldn't be a surprise to see Fuller act as one of Miami's starters alongside DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle right out of the gate. However, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is considered day-to-day and looks uncertain to face the Raiders, which could give Jacoby Brissett a spot start.

Fuller has done nothing but produce whenever he's been on the field, but that condition has been a difficult one for him to meet during his four-year career. He has missed at least two games every year, including 14 the last two seasons. Fuller's per-play numbers are always excellent, and he had four catches of 40-plus yards on only 71 targets in 2019, i.e., his big-play ability is still very much intact. At 6-0, 184, Fuller is slight but very fast - he ran a 4.32 40 at the 2016 combine - and at age 26 is still in his prime. He'll also have a chance to be the team's top receiver with target hog DeAndre Hopkins now in Arizona. But while Fuller's completely recovered from January sports hernia surgery, and his 2018 ACL tear should be 100 percent healed, he'll have to fend off fellow holdover and deep threat Kenny Stills and newly acquired (and also injury prone) deep-threat Brandin Cooks. The Texans also signed Randall Cobb for slot work, so there are a few mouths to feed even without Hopkins around, but Fuller has the most upside of the four, and with Deshaun Watson under center, he could be a difference maker.
Ever since Deshaun Watson took over at quarterback, all Fuller has done is produce - that is, on the rare occasion both players have been healthy. After missing six games in 2017, Fuller tore his ACL last October and missed the final nine games of the year. He's expected back in some capacity during training camp and appears on track to suit up for Week 1. Last year, Fuller averaged a monstrous 11.2 YPT and 15.7 YPC. He scored four TDs in less than half a season and was on pace for 100 targets. At 6-0, 184, Fuller's not much of a red-zone threat, but he ran a blazing 4.32 40 and should reprise his role as the team's primary field stretcher. Keke Coutee emerged as another viable target last year, but Coutee's average depth of target (5.1 yards) puts him nowhere near Fuller (14.2 yards) on the field, so the two are more likely to complement one another than compete. Coutee's presence in the slot could push Fuller outside more, and DeAndre Hopkins is still likely to be a target hog, but the Texans have no pass-catching tight ends of note, and they rarely throw to their backs. In short, the vast majority of Watson's attempts should be directed at his three wideouts, providing plenty to go around. Fuller just needs to stay healthy.
What a bizarre season. Fuller missed the first three games of 2017 with a broken collarbone, but when he returned he became the league's most unlikely touchdown machine with seven in his first four games from rookie QB Deshaun Watson. Then Watson tore his ACL after Week 8, and Fuller didn't score again. At 6-0, 180, and with blazing 4.32 speed, Fuller is in the DeSean Jackson mold - small, slight, injury-prone and dangerous down the field. Fuller missed three more games later in the year with a rib injury and left Week 17's contest with a knee injury on which he needed a minor procedure in January, something that's not expected to affect his offseason preparation. For 2018, Fuller gets a presumably healthy Watson back, but Fuller is playing opposite target hog DeAndre Hopkins, effectively capping his ceiling. With or without Hopkins, however, Fuller's not built to carry a heavy target load, and seven TDs on his first 22 Watson targets was almost certainly a fluke. Expect some big plays, in part due to Watson's ability to buy time and willingness to take chances down the field, but Hopkins should be doing the heavy lifting.
Last year's 21st overall pick, Fuller stormed out of the gate with two straight 100-yard games, but from Weeks 5-17, he eclipsed 50 yards only twice. Brock Osweiler's QB play didn't help, but Fuller didn't help Osweiler, either, with drops on wide-open deep balls, including in the playoff loss to the Patriots. At 6-0, 180, Fuller is slight, but he ran a blistering 4.32 40 at the Combine and has no problem getting behind defenses when he's able to run free. Fuller struggled getting off the line of scrimmage against press coverage, however, and needs to improve his conditioning. Osweiler, mercifully, is gone, but rookie Deshaun Watson (or worse, Tom Savage) isn't likely to be a huge upgrade right away. Fuller would've been locked in as a Week 1 starter despite last year's struggles, but he broke his collarbone during training camp and is expected to miss at least the first month of the season, with the initial timeline hinting at a return in October. Given the quarterback situation, it's tough to make an argument for stashing him.
The 21st overall pick this year, Fuller has a chance to produce for the Texans right away - he merely has to supplant the injury-prone Cecil Shorts. At 6-0, 184, Fuller isn't big, but he showed blazing speed (4.32 40) and good explosiveness (126-inch broad jump) at the Combine, qualities that were evident his last two years in college when he scored 29 touchdowns and caught 138 passes. Even if Fuller is able to wrestle the No. 2 role away from Shorts, he'll be playing opposite one of the league's premier target hogs in DeAndre Hopkins. Moreover, the Brock Osweiler-led Texans aren't likely to be among the league leaders in passing attempts, so Fuller's upside is modest in Year 1.
