During training camp, Fuller looked impressive, but forgive many if they held off on anointing him a savior for the wide receiving group until seeing him in game action.

Through the first eight games, though, Fuller has impressed, and had a solid week after catching the game winning touchdown against the New Orleans Saints.

Given the loss of Calvin Johnson, others have had to step in, and Fuller is coming along and continuing to grow into his role week by week. If he continues to trend up, there’s no reason his combination of size and speed can’t turn him into a significant NFL wideout.
