The Houston Texans kick off against the Buffalo Bills in 24 hours, and wide receiver Will Fuller is a game-time decision, according to head coach Bill O’Brien. Fuller was limited in practice all week after missing Week 17 vs. the Titans.

Fantasy football analysis: Texans wide receivers

Fuller dealt with a hamstring injury much of the season, and then added this groin injury to close out the season. It’s hard to have any confidence in playing him in fantasy football. He’s got tremendous upside, but even if he does play on Saturday, he could aggravate the injury and be out of the game before the first quarter is even a wrap.

At $10,200 in Showdown and $4,900, he’s the fourth highest priced wide receiver in this game behind DeAndre Hopkins, John Brown, and Cole Beasley. Kenny Stills is only a few hundred behind him, but is a safer play if you think the Texans offense will get going against a stout Bills defense. Buffalo ranks fifth against wide receivers in DKFP allowed, so you might be best suited skipping the unit entirely, or just focusing on DeAndre Hopkins.
