Fuller is out this week. Here’s how to deal with that situation.

When the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens meet this Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET, it should be one of the more exciting games of the season: two AFC playoff contenders, high-flying offenses, and two of the most talented quarterbacks in the game. Unfortunately for Texans wide receiver Will Fuller, he will have to be content with watching the action from the sidelines in street clothes. Fuller is out this week.

Despite getting in some limited work at practice this week and looking like a game-time decision, Fuller was ruled out on Saturday. He is dealing with a hamstring injury that has plagued him since being forced out of the team’s Week 7 game in the first quarter.

Despite missing this week, it does at least look like he could make his return in Week 12, when the Texans face the Colts.

Fuller’s numbers haven’t been great from week to week, apart from Week 5 when he exploded for 217 yards and three touchdowns. In this offense, a player can have a game like that at any time, you just never know when.

Without Fuller, Kenny Still has played a stepped up role as the team’s No. 2 receiver alongside DeAndre Hopkins. Stills had four catches for 52 yards in the team’s last game, before a groin injury took him out of action. He’s worth a flyer at $4,600 in DK leagues this week.
