The Texans offense is getting healthy at a critical time.

UPDATE: Will Fuller, Kenny Stills, and Darren Fells are all officially active. Fuller’s presence is a good bump for the Texans and DeShaun Watson.

Houston Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson should have a full contingent of pass catchers on hand for Sunday’s Divisional round matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Wide receivers Will Fuller and Kenny Stills and tight end Darren Fells are all set to be active for the game after showing up as questionable on the final injury report, according to NFL Network reporter James Palmer.

Fuller has not played since suffering a groin injury in Week 16 and Stills suffered a knee injury last week in the Wild Card game. Both were listed as limited all week in practice. Fells was added to the injury report on Friday as limited with a hip injury.

Fantasy football analysis: Texans pass catchers

DeAndre Hopkins is the top guy, but an active Fuller is a huge addition to the group. He takes this offense to the next level and is a wild card option in the Captain slot in Showdown. If he plays the full game, he has a chance to put up monster numbers, but we just don’t know if he can stay healthy. For a receiver who rarely got hurt in college, he’s struggled to stay healthy in the NFL.

Stills loses some luster with Fuller’s return, but is still a valuable option. Fells is an inexpensive Flex option against a Chiefs defense that ranks 27th against tight ends.
