Deshaun Watson completes to Will Fuller for a 77 yard touchdown pass for the Houston Texans against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fuller caught all five of his targets on Sunday for 100 yards and a score in a bounce back week following his three catches for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Week Eight defeat to the Green Bay Packers.His value as a deep-threat has been undisputed since being selected in the first round of the 2016 Draft, with niggling injuries the major hindrance to his efforts to establish himself as a consistent threat. The hope is that he has turned a corner this year in regards to his health.Speaking post-game Fuller admitted “it really sucked” to be shopped by the Texans prior to the deadline.“Just giving this organisation my all, coming to work every day, very unselfish player, do everything they ask, and then, just to be shopped around, I did feel a certain type of way,” he said.“But like I said, I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to play with Deshaun and continue to try to get wins with this organisation.”Sky Sports NFL is your dedicated channel for NFL coverage through the season – featuring a host of NFL Network programming, a new weekly preview show as well as at least five games a week and NFL Redzone, you won’t miss a moment.

It was the sixth straight game in which Fuller had hauled in a touchdown catch, marking the longest streak by any player since Antonio Brown’s eight-game stretch in 2018.“It would have been hell if they would have done that, for sure,” Watson said post-game when asked about the possibility of Fuller being traded.“Honestly. I’m glad to continue to play with Will. We’ve been making a lot of big, big plays since I came into this league, [and we’re] going to continue to do that as we continue to go the rest of this year and hopefully the rest of our careers.” – Advertisement – last_img read more
