Will Fuller injury update: WR questionable for Texans, fantasy owners

The wide receiver's status is listed as questionable for Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the team’s meeting against the Chicago Bears. The first-round draft pick was limited in practice all week with an hamstring tweak. On Thursday, Houston’s head coach Bill O’Brien said the rookie wideout will be "fine" for the Texans’ opener, said Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. On Friday, Fuller told Wilson, "I feel good, I feel ready to go." Fuller is expected to be in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fuller’s injury seems to be minor. He was able to practice and everyone in the Texans’ camp is confident their 2016 first-round pick will start Sunday. Fuller had a solid preseason showing and this hamstring tweak is the first blimp in an otherwise positive introduction to the NFL. The Texans are giving Fuller a chance to make a big splash with the start. Owners also can roll the dice on Fuller as an upside WR5.
