Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller returned from a hamstring injury with a big Week 12 performance followed by a quiet Week 13. He appears to have aggravated the injury and will not play in Week 14, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

Fuller injured his hamstring in Week 7 and missed three games. He returned to catch seven passes for 140 yards against the Indianapolis Colts, and then was held to one eight-yard reception against the New England Patriots. He got in three straight limited practices this week before being designated as questionable.

Fantasy football analysis: Texans WR Will Fuller

The Texans play in the 1:00 p.m. slot, so you won’t be stuck wondering for the later slot. Keke Coutee likely will be active in his place, but Coutee is not a useful fantasy option at this point. Kenny Stills will start opposite DeAndre Hopkins and see more targets with Fuller out. If you have Stills, he’s a decent flex option against a solid Broncos defense. He’s not a must-start, but should be in strong consideration depending on how your bench looks.
