The Houston Texans' passing game has been missing one of its biggest weapons over the past two weeks, but the team is hopeful that Will Fuller will return to action following a Week 10 bye.

Fuller went down with a hamstring injury in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts, finishing the game with just one catch for six yards. It's been a largely disappointing season for the field-stretching wide receiver, outside of a Week 6 explosion against the Atlanta Falcons, in which Fuller caught 14 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns.

Prior to this season, Fuller had developed a strong chemistry with quarterback Deshaun Watson, as the two have managed to link up for 12 touchdowns in their first 17 games together, despite their early struggles in 2019.

While the Texans' passing game as a whole has underperformed this year, despite Watson having an MVP-caliber season, there is hope they can come out of the bye strong, despite a tough schedule with games against the Baltimore Ravens, Colts, New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.

Regardless of schedule, Fuller adds a whole different dimension to the Texans' offense, and will look to finish the season with Watson as his QB for the first time in both of their careers. For those thinking ahead, Houston does get a dream matchup in fantasy football's championship week (Week 16) as the Texans play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who give up the most fantasy points to wide receivers.
