Will Fuller, WR

Will Fuller would be a low-risk signing for the Packers, just as De’Vondre Campbell was a year ago. But the potential reward for signing Fuller is huge.

The biggest concern with Fuller is how much time he has missed throughout his career. Through a combination of injury and suspension, Fuller has never completed a full regular season.

With the Miami Dolphins last year, Fuller only played in two games.

But let’s talk about the upside.

When Fuller is active, he is one of the best deep threats in the NFL. Fuller has game-changing speed and forces defenses to respect his ability to hit a home run down the field.

In 2020, Fuller played in 11 games, making 53 catches for 879 yards and eight touchdowns. His 16.6 yards per reception ranked sixth in the NFL. Of his eight touchdown catches, eight were of 20+ yards. Three were of 40+ yards.

Put Fuller in this Packers offense and he could dominate.

The Packers wouldn’t need him to be a complete wide receiver who runs every route, but rather a player capable of making game-changing plays down the field. Pair that with Aaron Rodgers’ accuracy, and this could be an incredible connection.

How many games would Fuller play? That’s the only concern. But on a low-risk, team-friendly deal, it’s a move that could pay off in a huge way.
