The Saints desperately need help at wide receiver and they haven’t done much to shore up the position so far. Fortunately for them, the draft has tons of talented receiver prospects, so if their goal is to add help through the draft, they picked a good year to do that.

If New Orleans wants to take one more flier at the position, Will Fuller could be worth gambling on.

Fuller has been injury-prone throughout his career but when he’s healthy and able to take the field, he’s a difference-maker… or at least he used to be.

It’s hard to say what kind of player Fuller will be after appearing in just two games last year for the Dolphins. He had only four catches and obviously wasn’t what Miami was hoping for when they brought him in on a one-year “prove it” deal.

Prior to his lackluster year in South Beach, Fuller had 879 yards and eight touchdowns through 11 starts with the Texans in 2020. He proved that when he’s able to take the field, he’s a solid player but it’s not a guarantee that he’ll be able to do so.

The injury concerns make Fuller a cheap option in free agency and one that the Saints should consider bringing in.
