If the Chiefs wanted to increase their risk but lower their investment while still trying to find a guy with proven production in spurts at the NFL level, Will Fuller would be a thrilling deep threat when healthy.

No one has ever questioned Fuller’s talent since entering the NFL as the first-round pick of the Houston Texans in the 2016 NFL Draft. The former Notre Dame product has always been one of the better down-field targets in the league, and even put up career-highs in the wake of the DeAndre Hopkins’ trade in 2020 with 53 catches for 879 yards and 8 touchdowns.

The concerns surrounding Fuller, and the reason why he remains available at this point, are health-related given that he’s never played a full season in the NFL. He’s played in only 53 games in six seasons, and as they say, a player’s best ability is his availability. In 2021, the situation was worse than ever with a broken finger and PED suspension among the reasons he stayed off the field for all but two games in Miami.

Now a free agent once again, Fuller is going to have to accept a low-ball offer unless a team is willing to risk more than most franchises would want.
