Getting Vertical: Will Fuller Brings the Boom, Raises Deshaun Watson’s Ceiling

After missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, Will Fuller came back in a huge way in Week 2, turning 9 targets into 8 catches for 113 yards and a TD. Fuller has a knack for finding the end zone with 8 touchdowns in his last 11 games, and his presence seems to have a calming effect on Deshaun Watson. After a 50% completion rate and just 176 yards in Week 1, Watson bumped his numbers up to 69% and 310 yards against the Titans. As long as both are on the field together along with DeAndre Hopkins, all will see an uptick in fantasy value moving forward. 

If you want to get a better idea of the rapport these two have together, look no further than this tweet from Evan Silva.

Meanwhile, in 6 games after Watson’s injury last year, Fuller totaled just 144 yards and 0 TDs. But it appears that Fuller and Watson will continue to complement each other and raise each other’s fantasy values provided they’re on the field together. And the rest of the team is noticing, like DeAndre Hopkins, who said Fuller’s presence on the field “helps us out a lot. You saw he made some plays downfield, and he brought some confidence.”

That confidence will only continue to skyrocket if these two continue the success they’ve had, and they’ll now get to showcase it at home against the 0-2 Giants. With a strong young QB and a teammate in Hopkins that defenses simply can’t ignore, Fuller’s presence in Houston’s offense is hugely important. Watson is The Wolf’s QB5 this week, while Fuller comes in at WR23.
