UPDATE: Fuller is active.

The Houston Texans are hoping to get wide receiver Will Fuller back on the field for Week 12 Thursday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts, but it is looking like a game-time decision. Fuller has been out since injuring his hamstring in Week 7. He was a limited participant in practice this week, although all three sessions were walkthroughs and thus estimations of practice ability.

The team announced Fuller as questionable on the final injury report, and beat writer Aaron Wilson described him as a game-time decision. TNF kicks off at 8:20 p.m., so inactives are due by 6:50 p.m.

Fantasy football analysis: Texans WRs Will Fuller, Kenny Stills, Keke Coutee

If Fuller is active, he takes away some of DeAndre Hopkins’ looks. Hopkins will still get plenty of work, so the bigger concern is what it means for Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee. If Fuller is active, Coutee drops off the fantasy radar entirely, and Stills moves into a more limited slot role.

If Fuller is not active against the Colts, Stills is a solid start consideration opposite Hopkins. He’s not a must start by any means, but he’s worth starting if you’re shorthanded.
