Will Fuller did nothing but make big plays for Notre Dame last season, and now he’s looking to take his game to the pro level. Fuller went 21st overall to the Houston Texans in the 2016 NFL draft, and could be a sleeper fantasy play in his first NFL season.

Alongside DeAndre Hopkins, Fuller should be an immediate asset. His size isn’t overwhelming (6’0), but Fuller has excellent hands, jumping, and timing: a lethal combination at his position. Over 25 percent of his catches last year went for over 25 yards, and he finished the season averaging 20.8 yards per catch.

He was by far the best receiver for the Irish last season, catching a team-high 62/1258 with 14 touchdowns. He was Notre Dame’s main threat, recording over 120 receiving yards in six of 12 games last season. He saved his best for last, scoring an 81-yard TD against Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.

Fuller is a boom-or-bust player, both on the field and in the draft. If he can beat his coverage, he can turn almost any play into a touchdown. But if he gets locked out, like he did last year against teams like Wake Forest and Temple, he won’t last very long at the next stage.

With the additions of Lamar Miller and now Fuller, the Texans have given new quarterback Brock Osweiler plenty of weapons. The Texans are making a case to be the favorites in the AFC South, and Fuller could be a part of something special in Houston. Fuller will be drafted for a flex spot in 10 and 12 team leagues, and could compete with Ezekial Elliot for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
