Expectations for Will Fuller, V remain high.

The fifth-year receiver is back in camp, healthy, and ready for the season to get going.

His quarterback, Deshaun Watson, thinks Fuller is "going to ball out" in 2020. Fuller himself said "the sky is the limit".

Like it's been every year of his Texans career, health is the only thing limiting the swift pass-catcher. He's averaged 10 starts through his first four NFL seasons. In that area, he's doing well.

"As far as my health, I'm feeling good," Fuller said. "The surgery I had at the beginning of the offseason, it's not bothering me anymore at all."

Fuller believes he'll play all 16 games, something he's never done as a professional. If that happens, Watson said to expect big things from Fuller.

"Will's going to be one of the best receivers in the league," Watson said. "He came back a lot stronger, a lot faster. Will's really good, very confident in himself and what he did over the offseason. I'm very confident in what he can do. We all are as an organization and as a team."

Fuller said he worked on a few key things this offseason to correct hamstring, back and groin injuries that sidelined him in the past.

"Just focusing on a lot of mechanical things - trying to fix the way I'm running, fix my posture," Fuller said. "Just little things that can go a long way if you stay on it throughout the season."

General manager/head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller showed up to training camp in "great shape", which helped set a good tone for the start of the 2020 campaign.

"He looks as good as he's ever looked and that makes us happy," O'Brien said. "It makes us feel like we're going to get off on the right foot here."

Fuller's averaged 14.3 yards per catch in his career, and has caught 16 touchdowns in 42 NFL games.
