WR - HOU
Week 3 Outlook
Keke Coutee caught both of his targets for 11 yards and lost a costly fumble in Sunday's 33-16 loss to the Ravens in Week 2.
Coutee was inactive in Week 1 but was back on the field on Sunday. The 23-year-old receiver made a critical turnover on his second catch when the ball was knocked loose and scooped up by L.J. Fort, who returned the fumble for a touchdown to give Baltimore a 20-7 lead late in the second quarter. That was the turning point of the game as the Ravens were never threatened afterward.
Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee is inactive for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.
Coutee has been dealing with an ankle injury, but it is no guarantee that he would have been active even if he were healthy. He is buried on the Houston depth chart this season and does not appear to have much fantasy value, at least in the short term.
Aaron Reiss of the Athletic leaves WR Keke Coutee off the Texans' 53-man roster prediction.
Coutee has been dealing with a minor stress fracture in his foot and was able to practice on Saturday. The 23-year-old could be left off the Texans' roster all together. "DeAndre Carter, the former substitute teacher who returns kicks and punts and can backup Cobb in the slot," said Texans HC Bill O'Brien. "That comment makes it appear unlikely O’Brien would cut Carter, who entered camp in competition with Coutee," Reiss added. "Coutee had a strong camp when healthy but dealt with an injury once again, limiting his opportunities to prove he was trustworthy enough in the return game to overtake Carter. Coutee’s best shot at making the roster might now be if Houston places fifth-round rookie Isaiah Coulter on IR. Coulter has not practiced since Aug. 22 because of an injury and has not appeared ready to contribute this season." Coutee has had trouble staying healthy in his career as the Texans' WR has missed 17 regular season games due to injury. It remains to be seen if Coutee will be released, but he is not on the fantasy radar for 2020.
Keke Coutee (foot) participated in practice Saturday.
Coutee was sidelined with a minor stress fracture in his foot. He returned to Saturday’s practice. Coutee has missed 17 games throughout his career. The 23-year-old hauled in 36 receptions for 254 yards across nine contests in 2019. Coutee is fourth on the Texans’ WR depth chart, and is on the fantasy radar in deep-league formats only.
Keke Coutee has been sidelined for the past couple of days with a stress fracture in his foot. It is not considered as a long-term injury, but he could miss the beginning of the season.
This is tough news for Coutee as he is already fighting for a roster spot at the wide receiver position. Coutee has looked good in short stretches with the Houston Texans, but new additions of Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb could put Coutee very low on the depth chart.
