Tyrann Mathieu is one of the best safeties in the league. So when he speaks about the toughest receivers in the league to cover, fans should take notes. And his answer was actually rather surprising.
When asked who was the toughest wideout in the league to defend, Mathieu revealed that Will Fuller was his toughest cover last season.
That's a pretty telling comment because Mathieu faced some elite wideouts in 2019. He went up against names like T.Y. Hilton, Keenan Allen, Kenny Golladay, Courtland Sutton, DeAndre Hopkins and Allen Robinson.
Fuller was also a bit of a surprising pick, because it's not like he dominated the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019, finishing the Week 6 matchup with 5 receptions for 44 yards on 9 targets.
Still, this is yet another sign that if Fuller can stay healthy, he could be in for a legitimate breakout campaign in 2020.
