The Houston Texans will be without wide receiver Will Fuller for their Week 17 matchup with the Tennessee Titans, and his absence could extend beyond that. Fuller injured his groin in Week 16, and multiple reports from national and local media have confirmed the injury and suggest a rehab timeline of up to three weeks.

Fuller has put up some fo the best numbers of his career this season, but it has still been a disappointment due to injuries. A hamstring injury cost him four games and limited him in two other games, and now this groin injury is going to carry into the playoffs. Bill O’Brien showed visible frustration with Fuller’s injury-prone situation following Sunday’s game.

Fantasy football analysis: Texans WR Will Fuller

His absence in Week 17 boosts Kenny Stills target opportunities, and likely means work for DeAndre Carter and Keke Coutee. Carter had a huge 39-yard catch to set up the Texans eventual game-winning field goal and Stills led the team with five receptions for 57 yards. In DFS, Stills has the highest floor behind DeAndre Hopkins, but Carter could be a sneaky play.
