Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller was having a special season full of impressive performances prior to being suspended six games the end of November for violating the NFL's PED policy. The 26-year-old wideout was having his best season and leading the Texans in receptions (53) receiving yards (879) and touchdowns (8) at the time of his suspension.

But with free agency approaching and Fuller in the final season of a four-year, $10 million deal, where will he be playing in 2021?

Fuller is a coveted speed recevier that can transform an offense that lacks a top speed threat. He's a highly-ranked receiver in Pro Football Focus' top-50 free agents ranking published in December.

Here are the most likely destinations for Fuller as he continues his career in 2021.

1. Miami Dolphins

Fuller could join a young team filling up with talent that includes quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The Miami Dolphins lack speed at wide receiver and would be a great complement to Miami's 2015 first round pick, DeVante Parker (63 receptions for 793 yards in 2020). The Dolphins desperately need to add upgrades for Tua in the passing game with diminutive Jakeem Grant next in wide receiver receptions for the Dolphins this season with 36. Adding Fuller would continue the Dolphins climb towards the playoffs after just missing in an unexpected winning season in 2020.

2. Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers pursued Fuller at the November, 2020 trade deadline looking to add another piece to its Super Bowl run with MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But Green Bay and Houston couldn't work out a deal. The offseason could be another chance if the Packers management decides to open up its wallet. The Packers led the NFL in scoring this season at 31.8 points per game and were No. 2 in the NFC at 389 yards per game. Green Bay already has a star Pro Bowl receiver in Devante Adams, but Aaron Rodgers has not been shy about wanting more weapons in this offense.

3. Los Angeles Chargers

Will Fuller may want to seriously consider joining rising superstar QB Justin Herbert in Los Angeles. The Chargers will be looking for a new head coach after firing Anthony Lynn, and offensive coordinators are at the top of the list. Herbert set NFL rookie passing records in 2020, and Fuller would give him a big play weapon alongside top proven pro Keenan Allen and 2017 top-10 pick Mike Williams. There is a lot of offensive firepower in the AFC West with the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders leading the way. Adding Fuller would help Herbert's progression and the Chargers chances to keep pace with its division rivals in pursuit of a Super Bowl title.
