The Dolphins beget an exciting receiving corps with the addition of Fuller, but it certainly’s also led by two very unreliable gamers. DeVante Parker had a occupation-high 1,202 yards in 2019 when he modified into as soon as healthy, but that continues to be the absolute best time in six seasons he hasn’t uncared for now not lower than one game due to injuries. 

Fuller never played a chunky 16-game time desk in five seasons with the Houston Texans. The 26-one year-worn looked heading within the correct route to make it in 2020, but his season came to an close after 11 video games when the NFL announced he modified into as soon as suspended six video games for violating the league’s efficiency-enhancing drug coverage. 

Since Fuller modified into as soon as absolute best in a set aside to assist five video games on the tip of final season, he’ll want to sit down down out Miami’s first game in 2021. 

When Fuller modified into as soon as on the realm in 2020, he modified into as soon as an electrical skills. The Notre Dame alum modified into as soon as Educated Football Focal point‘s ninth-perfect graded receiver (86.2). He enviornment occupation highs with 53 receptions, 879 yards and eight touchdowns in precisely 11 video games. 

There modified into as soon as hypothesis that the Dolphins would perhaps maybe maybe target both LSU’s Ja’Marr Trail or Alabama’s DeVonta Smith with the No. 3 overall fetch within the 2021 NFL draft. 

Adding a form of gamers to a community with Fuller, Parker and tight close Mike Gesicki will surely make issues more straightforward for Tua Tagovailoa heading into his 2d season. 

Miami modified into as soon as already on the upward push after a 10-6 epic in 2020. If Fuller can preserve healthy, he’s received the aptitude to be a home-bustle hitter on the starting up air for an offense that ranked 15th in facets per game and absolute best had two gamers with bigger than 400 yards receiving final season.
