1 year deal. This is only going to add fuel to the Watson rumors.

At least he didn't get the "Mike Wallace" deal.

And yes, one ability he has struggled developing is availability.

Well, he will fit right in with DeVante Parker and Preston Williams. Two of them should be healthy for each game .... I hope. Add in Ja'Marr Chase.

Fuller is also suspended for the first game this year as the 6th game of his 6-game PED suspension from last year.

Well, he is coming off the best year of his career and he isn’t a 35 year old Patriot’s castoff...can he play center or rush off the edge?

I suppose this means a very good chance we are going to use a high pick at RB and for that, I would be happy.

He cheated to get that best yr of his career. So I'm just happy its a one yr deal

Don't forget that Fuller was always the Robin to Deandre Hopkins' Batman.

I don't know what he was busted for and if it was used for healing purposes as opposed to strength enhancement. He has a real chance.

Dave, I disagree on Jamarr Chase being the target.

With Fuller you have your speed threat/spacer. Parker and Williams will share duties as the jump ball/possession guys. Miami will be looking at a speedy RAC guy and maybe, just maybe, they intend to trade back a bit and land Jaylen Waddle.

I thought my original mock draft was hot crap, but given the Waddle fit and now the very big need for an Edge guy it would be pretty amazing if they dropped back twice with the results being Waddle and Joseph Ossai. I will take a bow at that point.

I don’t see how this adds fuel to the Watson debate. Pretty much every deal we’ve made this week is being looked at through a Watson colored lens. I’ll go on record as saying that Watson will not be wearing a Phins uni this year or anytime in the near future.

Unless they plan on trading Parker, maybe picking up Fuller means they are going after Pitts rather than one of the top 3 WRs. I suppose Waddle would still fit, though. Fuller, Parker, Waddle, Williams -- that would be quite a quartet. Along with Gesicki.

Yeah, it could mean they are angling for Watson, but I sure hope not.

A little information on Fuller from PFF. With the Dolphins focused on running the ball, PFF thinks that his "fantasy value" will drop. PFF says that the Dolphins receiving corp is now "stacked". I still see the Dolphins drafting WR (or Pitts) with their first pick in the draft. Remember this is only a 1 year contract. If Preston Williams can shake the injury bug, the Dolphins are looking promising on offense.

Will Fuller is an absolute stud (when healthy)

Will Fuller was amid a breakout 2020 season before getting popped for performance-enhancing drugs. He posted a career-high 86.2 PFF grade, 10th among wide receivers, while averaging an exceptional 17.2 PPR fantasy points per game (seventh) and 2.3 yards per route run (ninth). He set career bests across the receiving board with a 53-879-8 line on a hyper-efficient 76 targets.

There are few players in the NFL better at the home run ball than Will Fuller. He earned an otherworldly 99.3 receiving grade (sixth) on targets thrown beyond 20 yards downfield last season while averaging 20.9 yards per route run (third) and hauling in four touchdowns (fourth). Since entering the NFL in 2016, Fuller’s 12 deep touchdowns rank 13th among pass-catchers — a rather remarkable total considering the number of games he has missed.

The Dolphins suddenly have a stacked pass-catching corps, with Fuller joining DeVante Parker, Mike Gesicki and Preston Williams. And though a crowded receiving room is great in the NFL real world, fantasy managers crave consistent usage, and I struggle to see Fuller topping 100 targets on the Dolphins. Parker posted 100 targets last season with a barren Dolphins receiving room offering minimal competition and a Ryan Fitzpatrick cameo boosting the raw total.

However, keep in mind that Fuller’s massive big-play upside still means that he can be a useful player to roster in fantasy. There will be several weeks where he catches downfield bombs and hits his ceiling of 100 yards and multiple touchdowns. Unfortunately, predicting when the boom weeks occur will probably be more difficult than we are used to.

He'd have to have a healthy and productive season for this to happen.







And I'll add some more reading material for you as you sit on the can;)

Thursday FA Winner: The Dolphins

Miami has made some smart depth additions on offense, adding Jacoby Brissett at QB and Malcolm Brown at RB. But Thursday the Dolphins connected on maybe their most exciting swing by adding Will Fuller on a one-year deal. Talk about a win-win, low-risk, high-reward move. Is Fuller reliable? Not necessarily. But with the draft around the corner and likely offering more swings at major WR upgrades, you can do a whole lot worse out wide, where Fuller's flashed big-play ability and could be a great complement to DeVante Parker.

Something to show you how good a signing that Will Fuller was for the Dolphins in free agency.

PFF wrote:
2021 NFL Free Agency: One positive takeaway for all 32 NFL teams so far | PFF

MIAMI DOLPHINS: The Will Fuller V signing gives Miami more flexibility in the upcoming draft

The Dolphins needed some additional speed in this receiving corps, and there was no better candidate to do just that than Fuller in free agency.

He showed this past season before his suspension that he can be a legitimate No. 1 option in the passing game after being thrust into that role following the trade of DeAndre Hopkins from Houston. Fuller set a career-high in overall grade (86.2) and yards per reception (16.6), with a career-low average depth of target of 13.3 yards. He’s one of the best vertical threats in the league, but he isn’t just a vertical threat.

Another important aspect of the Fuller signing is that it should allow Miami to comfortably trade back with a team looking to move up to third overall to grab one of the top quarterbacks in the 2021 NFL Draft. The need at wide receiver may have made the Dolphins reluctant to do that previously, but the best value will likely come from moving back and acquiring multiple picks. Now, Miami can do that more freely without feeling forced to fill a hole at wide receiver.


https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-2021-nfl-f ... -teams#MIA


Fuller is hungry to be paid like a #1 WR after this season. PFF's 2020 #7 WR may have an outstanding season this year. I hope he plays so well that we entertain "franchising" him.

I’m glad we signed Wallace in retrospect because I don’t think a Davie suit will ever make that kinda move again. They promoted Wallace with the new uniforms so they invested him in BIG. Hopefully not again.

Not that it matters, but Matt Miller posted on FB that Fuller was out for the yr.

Not huge news, but it is news.

The guy is a huge joke.

I knew it when they signed him. I fairness the 2021 FA WR market was really weak.

Looking at this post it just brings disappointment.

Parker - Always star potential - Should have been a been at least a three time PBer by now and one of the most feared Wr in the NFL. He has all the ability in the world to be a HoF Wr.

Williams - Huge disappointment. All that can be said. Will probably play for someone else next yr

Fuller - A gamble that failed. He is useless as a NFL Wr.

Gesicki - Great at times - nay at others. Might still be developing and might blossom once other issues are corrected.

PFF is officially in my dumpster bin.

FF average stats?

Seriously? The nerdiest of all football nerds. If the NFL wasn’t an overinflated balloon of money they’d have to run a real job. Weak sauce.

Their town crier level of praise for this guy melted quick. But who cares…it’s PFF…we don’t need to use them as a crutch anymore to pretend T Hill is a consistent top 5-10 QB

:haha

I was listening to Coach Flores' press conference yesterday, and he mentioned that Fuller had a setback and is pretty much done for 2021. I can't fault the Dolphins for taking a chance on him as he had a very good and healthy season in 2020. Grier needs to mix up some gambles with sure things and just pay the money in FA.

For instance, gambles in the draft: Tua, Waddle both came off of serious injuries before the draft. It paid off. Phillips is another player who had serious concussion issues , but who ended up being a "win".

The offensive line: drafted several projects, and as we are seeing they are still projects. It didn't help that we changed coaches once again and flipped the OL all around and didn't sign a veteran to work with them.

Parker is a gamble for a #2 WR. Preston Williams can't stay healthy, and doesn't get enough reps in practice to have consistent hands. A low risk gamble which paid off is Ford.

Free agency in 2019 wasn't bad, but they put winning on players they hoped would take the next step in Ogbah, Flowers, and Van Noy. Only Ogbah took the next step, and Flowers and Van Noy played better with their former teams (but were not bad for us).

I look at Preston Williams like Roberto Wallace, you remember that name? Similar career trajectory, right? Wallace’s nickname was ankle weights…Preston seems to play with weighted gloves. They both were undrafted & showed sparks but reality set it quick. Was that PFF or Florio’s media crew that said Miami’s WR room was ‘stacked’…? These guys cover the league with a broad brush & don’t really know what’s up inside Davie.

Great takeaway from Flores’ presser, I didn’t catch it

Oh wow. Blast from the past. I recall wanting Wallace to be a find.

Fuller had to cheat to stay on the field in his contract yr and Miami was the sucker he landed. In defense of Grier. The 2021 WR FA was extremely weak. Nelson Anglor was the next best thing I can recall and he has done little with NE despite having the greatest QB to ever walk onto a football field in Matt Jones..
