O'Brien: Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) 'doing well', non-committal about OTAs

In the 11 games he's played with quarterback Deshaun Watson, Texans WR Will Fuller has caught 11 touchdown passes.

“I know he’s doing well," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine. "He’s been in Houston the whole offseason. He’s working hard. Can’t say enough about Will. Will’s frustrated that he hasn’t been able to be on the field. I think when he has been on the field, he has made a huge difference for our team. He’s a touchdown-maker. He’s working hard to get back to that point. He’s been in there every day."

O'Brien was noncommittal on whether Fuller will be able to participate in any minicamps or organized team activities.

"Relative to what he will be able to do in the spring, I really don’t know that yet," O'Brien said. "I think we are kind of a little bit ways away from that. Could he do something in May? Could he do something in the June minicamp? I don’t know yet, but I know he’s working hard to get back and be ready to keep making plays for us.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Fuller has averaged 4.1 catches for 71 yards and 1.0 touchdowns—which are high-end fantasy WR1 numbers—in 11 games with DeShaun Watson, but he has missed 15 games over the past two seasons. If he can stay healthy, he should return great value on his current seventh round ADP, though his injury history is obviously a big concern.
