Chicago Bears free-agent wide receivers to avoid: Will Fuller

Oh, look. It’s another wide receiver where health is the name of the game. The difference between Will Fuller and our previous two receivers, though, is the fact that he looks every bit like a budding star lately.

Every time he is on the field, it seems as though Fuller makes a big play. He’s typically good for at least one long touchdown per game. That’s how crazy his production has been with the Houston Texans. This past season, Fuller scored eight times in 11 games.

For a team going through a lot of change and some bad press, the Texans could surely try to bring Fuller back. However, he may not agree to stick around. Fuller and quarterback Deshaun Watson have been on the same wavelength since the receiver came into the league, and if he doesn’t have his quarterback, you can forget about his interest in the Texans.

The only thing that could keep Fuller around, outside of Watson somehow staying put, is if the Texans massively overpay for him. We’re talking somewhere around the lines of top-15 or top-20 money for a guy who has never played a full season. Five years in and Fuller has gotten hurt every single season.
