The Houston Texans needs are dire for a 2nd wide receiver with Will Fuller’s season-ending injury. Here are three wide receivers the team must trade for.

The Houston Texans are flashing big time in their five-game win streak with the last two of them being quite impressive.  It’s apparent that the major kinks of getting this offense to be productive have been worked out and Deshaun Watson is finally gained a rhythm to his style of play.

Watson is being smart with the football — throwing the ball away when needed and sliding whenever he has to take off in order to protect his body.  This past Thursday, he did the job with accuracy, he only had four incomplete passes to his credit and threw five touchdown passes.

This is certainly the Deshaun I know as this was his mantra before he went down with injury around this time last year.  Houston Texans football is finally fun to watch again and if this is something that we’re going to see for the remainder of the season, I’m definitely here for it.

However, with Will Fuller suffering a season-ending injury — an ACL-tear to his right knee — late in Thursday’s tilt with the Miami Dolphins, this deems it necessary for the Houston Texans to make a trade for a legitimate WR2 to provide another option outside of DeAndre Hopkins.

The natural move would be to slide Keke Coutee to that position — which will happen — but because of Coutee’s past health concerns, I think it would be prudent to shop for another wide receiver and have Coutee back in the slot.

If Bruce Ellington weren’t on the injured reserve list, a deal may not have to be done because of his understanding of the offense and his keen ability to just get the done.  But that’s not the situation and the Houston Texans need to fulfill their needs via trade before the ballyhooed Tuesday, Oct. 30 deadline at 3 p.m. CDT.

Here are THREE wide receivers that the Houston Texans need to trade for so take a look.
