Could WR Will Fuller Be on the Chopping Block for the Texans This Offseason?

Numberfire.com has out a list of one player for each AFC team they think might be on the chopping block this offseason.

For the Texans the site has picked wide out Will Fuller as the player that could find himself released. Here’s what they have to say about Fuller getting cut.

Houston Texans – WR Will Fuller

Dead Cap Hit $0, Cap Saving $10.162M

The Houston Texans find themselves in fairly decent shape cap-wise ahead of the 2020 season. They have an estimated $57 Million in effective cap space, with 55 players currently under contract. So they do not need to make any sweeping changes to the roster. However, I find it hard to believe that they will be comfortable paying Will Fuller the rate he is set to earn next season.

Playing under his fifth-year option, Fuller’s entire salary is fully guaranteed for injury only. And Fuller has a far from spotless injury record. He has missed 18 games over the last four seasons and hasn’t played more than 11 since his rookie season. Fuller amassed a career-high in receiving yards in 2019 with 670. But 217 of those came in a single game, with another 140 in another.

The Texans have averaged nearly three more points per game when Fuller has played over the last three years. But his performances, linked to his injury history, make him something of a risky proposition. I don’t think he’s played his last down for the Texans. Though, I can’t imagine this is the contact he’ll be playing under in 2020.
