Houston Texans WR Will Fuller is officially active for Week 15 vs. the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Fuller, who is dealing with a hamstring injury, was deemed questionable to play heading into the weekend. Reports came out late Saturday night that Fuller would be able to play in a crucial AFC South matchup, with both the Texans and Titans tied at 8-5.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Houston Texans WR Will Fuller

So Fuller has stated throughout the week that he “feels good” and was able to get in some light work in practice, which is a good sign. QB Deshaun Watson will have his full stable of WRs for a big game in Houston. Fuller should operate as the deep threat, so I don’t think his presence necessarily hurts DeAndre Hopkins’ fantasy football prospects today. Nuk is still a must-play and the O/U on DK Sportsbook is at 51, which is the highest total on the slate. A lot of scoring to go around.

As for Fuller, the Titans have allowed a healthy 276.1 receiving yards per game with 20 TDs in 13 contests. The TD volume isn’t that encouraging considering Fuller’s value would likely be tied to scoring at least 1-2 touchdowns. I think Fuller is a risky play, but also a high-upside one. This game environment is expected to be bountiful for fantasy football, so getting a piece of it with Fuller seems ideal. I’d say Fuller is a good FLEX option if you have multiple slots and it’s a deeper PPR league. I don’t know how I feel about Fuller as a WR2, but you could do worse.
