The Houston Texans won’t have WR Will Fuller for their Week 14 matchup vs. the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Fuller had entered the weekend questionable to play and reports said he wasn’t expected to go, so this isn’t new news. He’s been hampered by a hamstring injury that’s been going on-and-off since October, and this will be his fourth missed game of the season.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Houston Texans wide receivers

With no Fuller, we should see the majority of the downfield work go to Kenny Stills ($3,700). He had four targets and three catches for 61 yards and a TD last week vs. the New England Patriots. DeAndre Hopkins ($7,400) hasn’t seen double-digit targets in consecutive weeks, but that could end today. Hop should be heavily involved, though the Broncos are decent on defense and don’t generally score much. If the game is low scoring, that doesn’t favor Texans WRs as heavily, so it would be more dependent on QB Deshaun Watson ($6,500) going off. Still, all three aren’t a bad stacking option on DraftKings. Hopkins and Watson are always must-plays in season-long, plus Stills is an OK flex option for the playoffs.
