The Texans get back Will Fuller in Week 12. We break down the fantasy football implications for his active status.

The Houston Texans announced their inactive report for Week 12, and wide receiver Will Fuller is active for the first time since Week 7. Fuller suffered a hamstring injury in that game and has been sidelined ever since. He returned to practice in limited fashion last week, and got in three more limited sessions this week before being designated as questionable for the game.

Fuller will move right back into the Texans starting lineup opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Kenny Stills will be the third receiver, while Keke Coutee has been deactivated in Fuller’s return.

Fantasy football analysis: Texans WR Will Fuller

The Colts pass defense has been solid this season, ranking tenth in efficiency and have given up the 14th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers. It’s not a great matchup, but Fuller has the kind of ceiling where you are willing to overlook a slightly more difficult matchup.

Fuller is not a must start given it’s his first game back, but you can do a lot worse than Fuller this week. It will depend on your bench options, but Fuller’s upside is considerable.
