Will fuller dynasty and redraft prospect

Fuller placed the blame on an unnamed physician, and some people actually believe him?  Come on, don't be so gullible.  Professional athletes with millions of dollars on the line know what substances they are putting in their body, and whether or not those substances are legal in their sport.

Yep. That explanation looked like it came from a random PED excuse generator. IIRC the NFL can't disclose what they tested positive for, so it always benefits the player to put an innocent sounding story out. 

On Fuller being re-signed in Houston, I wonder if that means they cut Cooks to make space. I don't think Cooks is overpriced at $12m next year, but he can be released with no dead cap. Or maybe more likely he gets traded once again.

I’ve legit been wondering why for three months. Then I read the last half of your sentence very    s l o w l y and laughed out loud.

They know what they are taking is illegal. They are probably misled on the probability of it triggering a failed test.   

So we should count on the Colts taking him in Round 1.

Tough to say what Houston will do when they have no GM and no real head coach. The fact that they moved nobody prior to the trade deadline I think means they will want Fuller back and this suspension will make him cheaper. I’d rather see them restructure Cooks than cut him as they have no one behind Fuller if they bring him back. But either way they need to cut salary badly with a number of guys either needing to be restructured, traded or cut: Watt, Cooks, both DJ’s, Cobb, Mercilus, Kelemete, Cunningham, McKinney, Murray, Roby. Some of these guys are good players that should be retained if they can, just a long list of badly structured or overpaid contracts BOB handed out.

Will Fuller will be suspended for Week 1 of the 2021 season. 

Fuller served five of his six-game suspension for a PED violation at the end of the 2020 season, and will have to finish the suspension in the first regular season game of next season. On Monday, suspensions for Fuller and teammate Bradley Roby were temporarily lifted so they can participate in offseason activities. The Texans are expected to re-sign Fuller, who will become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Since the Texans haven't hired a new GM or coach yet, how do we know they are expected to re-sign Fuller? Will is a great player who hasn't been able to stay on the field due to injuries, until this year, when he was suspended for taking PED's which can help you not get injured. I don't think the Texans will get in a bidding war for Fuller and they are better off extending Cooks to a long term deal.

cooks contract has 3 years left. they don't have much cap room to sign fuller. with a full off-season it would be nice if he cant stay in houston if he could go to GB. im sure rodgers wouldnt mind having a deep threat that can actually catch

As a Watson and Fuller owner, they both need each other.

Fuller is a deep threat that is one of the best in the league. 

Cooks is good, but he has lost that deep step. I think they draft a big man WR and resign Fuller while keeping Coutee in the mix. Atkins is nice at TE and they are one big man away from a nice WR corp. 

They had too many of the same type of player and not any that can go up and get that ball on the sideline like Nuk.

Funny, given that this was the big knock on Fuller, epsecially his rookie year.

Can’t say I really agree, Watson was lighting it up with practice squad guys like Hanson and Coutee with Fuller out. In past seasons, there were clear differences in the offenses effectiveness when Fuller was out, that was not the case as much the last few games and I think that is a reflection of Watson’s maturation.

In the end there is no way to know what Houston will do with Fuller with no GM or coach in place. On the face of it, their salary cap situation makes Fuller unlikely to be resigned, but a new regime can dump a lot of salary (Watt, Cooks, DJ, and others) to resign Fuller if they really want to.
