Will Fuller limited with hamstring injury, fantasy value still low

We break down the fantasy implications of Will Fuller dealing with a hamstring injury heading into Week 1.

Despite a lingering hamstring issue, the Houston Texans should have Will Fuller in Week 1. Fuller was limited in Wednesday's practice but is expected to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday, according to Houston Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson.

This is the first time Fuller has shown up on the injury report. The 21st pick of the 2016 NFL Draft had a great showing in training camp and the preseason. Even with DeAndre Hopkins getting most of the targets, Fuller is expected to take on a big role as the second boundary receiver in this offense.

Fantasy Spin: As long as Fuller practices fully over the next two days, this should have no effect on his fantasy stock heading into the season opener. He is projected just outside the top-50 wide receiver rankings for Week 1. Fuller's upside makes him a decent WR3 or flex play for now. He could grow into a WR2 as the season goes on.
