Last season, Will Fuller continued to show that when he's right, he's a game-changer. Now, with DeAndre Hopkins in Arizona, Fuller is now the No. 1 WR on a team that will throw in 2020. And he's been plenty productive. As ESPN's Matthew Berry pointed out, in his past 16 games with at least seven targets, Fuller has 87 catches, 1,192 yards and eight TDs (259.9 fantasy points). That would've been WR7 last season (ahead of Julian Edelman, just behind Keenan Allen). Part of that has been due to heavy usage thanks to a locked-in connection with Deshaun Watson. Fuller averaged a 24% target share in 10 "full" games last season and was at 22% in six "full" games in 2017. That's big-time usage and came with Hopkins in the fold and it leads ESPN's Mike Clay to suspect Fuller's share could rise even higher this year -- health willing.
Fuller has missed at least five games in three of four NFL seasons. He played just 11 games in 2019 because of hamstring and core muscle problems and has only played 42 of a possible 64 games in four seasons. This year, the speedy wideout says availability will be his top priority. "That's a big goal for me to play all 16," Fuller said.
2020 Bottom Line
Here's hoping he hits that goal. If he does, Fuller will play a major role in filling the void left by Hopkins' departure. Given his current ranking (as a WR3), there's ample upside to be had here.
