Keke Coutee, WR, Houston Texans
A hamstring issue delayed Coutee’s NFL debut until Week 4, and the injury has lingered to cause another missed game on a short week in Week 8. But some extra time heading into Week 9 should help, and with Will Fuller (torn right ACL) out for the season Coutee is in line for a big role.
Fuller left that Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts early in the second half with a hamstring issue of his own, and Coutee finished the game with 11 receptions (on 15 targets) for 109 yards. Fuller was limited the following week against the Dallas Cowboys, and Coutee had six catches for 51 yards and a touchdown (on seven targets).
Coutee has been dropped in droves over the last couple weeks. The progress of his hamstring has to be watched, and the Texans have a bye in Week 10, but the rookie out of Texas Tech should be re-added in most leagues with 12 or more teams.
