Will Fuller, WR
The Miami Dolphins had high hopes for wideout Will Fuller this season. Not surprising to anyone, Fuller’s tendency to injury has once again derailed his season. The former first-round pick of the Houston Texans has just 4 receptions for 26 yards in 2021 and is currently on injured reserve with a broken finger. The good news there is that he should be returning very soon.
The 6’1 180-lb. Fuller averaged just 10 games per season in his five-year tenure in Houston, and at this point, the Dolphins would probably take anything—literally anything—in an exchange.
Fuller inked a 1-year, fully guaranteed $10.63 million contract with the Dolphins in March that will have to be negotiated in order for the Chiefs to squeeze Fuller into their books. After that, the team will have to figure out the best plan to not only get Fuller on the field but keep him there. Perhaps the biggest question surrounding Fuller as it pertains to the Chiefs would be whether the team would be able to integrate him at all. Recent history suggests that midseason acquisitions at skill positions (Kelvin Benjamin, Le’Veon Bell, Josh Gordon) don’t often receive much run in Kansas City.
The 27-year-old Fuller has a tantalizing combination of size and speed (4.3 at the 2016 NFL combine) and has been a topic of conversation for the Chiefs in years past.
