The Houston Texans had quite the scare when they lost Will Fuller to a broken collarbone at the beginning of the season. However after returning to action on October 1st against the Titans, Fuller has been nothing short of sensational. Will Fuller and DeShaun Watson have combined for 4 touchdowns already this year and keep in mind Fuller has only suited up for two games. It’s obvious that the second year receiver out of Notre Dame has made significant strides from a development stand point and Fuller also gets a huge boost from playing with Watson. The Texans rookie quarterback is very good at evading pressure and he can deliver strikes with ease. That meshes well with Will Fuller’s game because Fuller is a smaller receiver (only 172 pounds) but he gets the job done with blazing speed. Together that tandem have been able to work the vertical game brilliantly and it’s pretty obvious that touchdowns are becoming a more frequent occurrence in Houston. Brock Osweiler only manufactured 15 TDs for the Texans offense when he was the starting QB in 2016. With 11 games remaining Watson has already put up 12 touchdowns so far, which almost guarantees you will see more touchdown receptions out of Fuller in the future. Things are definitely trending upward for the Houston Texans and it’s because of all these outstanding young tanlents they’ve added. Will Fuller is definitely a big piece of that puzzle and keep in mind people questioned this guy’s hands last year. Clearly Fuller struggled because of his lack of experience at the NFL level more so than his ability. Now Fuller is very much like Jared Goff in the fact that both players have progressed so much from year one to year two of their football careers. It will be a lot of fun to watch the young wide receiver ascend as the future continues to play out.
