3. Will Fuller

I’m on the fence about Will Fuller but the big reason as to why is injuries. He’s never started a full regular season during his six years in the league but even with that being the case, he’s put up some damn good numbers.

In 2020, Fuller appeared in 11 games and had 879 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging 16.6 yards per game. The guy was a tremendous weapon for Deshaun Watson in a year where he led the league in passing yards.

This past year wasn’t great for Fuller, who signed with the Dolphins. He only appeared in two games and had just four catches for 26 yards. It was a disappointing follow-up to the year he had in 2020 when he looked like an incredible target for an offense.

Injuries are the biggest reason to be wary of Fuller but we’ve seen that he can be a game-changer in the right offense. If the Saints get a decent quarterback (maybe even reunite Watson and Fuller), the Notre Dame product could definitely be worth the risk in free agency.
