1. Will Fuller

In former Miami Dolphins’ Will Fuller, we have a slightly higher-risk, higher-reward player who can offer more than just the veteran package deal.

Fuller may have squandered his last chance in Miami, but he’s got plenty left in the tank — as long as he can stay on the field.

Fuller’s short tenure on the Dolphins saw him play just two games in 2021, finishing with four catches for 26 yards in 65 snaps. At 27-years-old, Fuller is the youngest player on the list and theoretically should be less injury-prone, but he’s struggled to stay healthy for most of his NFL career.

Fuller’s best season came in 2020 on the Houston Texans when he recorded 879 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, but even then he was limited to just 11 games.

With the Dolphins now proudly boasting two elite receivers in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, it’s safe to say their Will Fuller experiment is over. It’s time for him to move on, and he could reasonably earn a starting spot on Baltimore this upcoming season.

When healthy, Fuller can dazzle defenders with his speed and route-running abilities, as he posted an impressive 291 yards after the catch in 2020.

The Ravens already have their slot receiver in Bateman and a deep threat in Brown, and Fuller could serve as the unpredictable and dynamic presence on the perimeter who can blow by corners with ease.

We admit Fuller’s injury history is barely palatable — Baltimore would take a monumental risk by bringing him on, and there’s a high probability it could blow up in the same way it did for Miami.
