Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) remains sidelined with a sprained ankle, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Huddle Up: This will play nicely into the narrative that Coutee is injury-prone and/or a slow healer. For what it's worth, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested the injury was "not major" at the time it happened, so it's probably best for owners to wait for another update before getting too concerned. Duke Johnson would likely benefit the most if Coutee is forced to miss regular-season action, while DeAndre Carter would likely step into Coutee's slot role and be worthy of a bench spot in deeper leagues.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) likely will be sidelined for at least one week because of the ankle injury he suffered in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Coutee has been a bit injury prone since joining the NFL, so he will need to show he can stay healthy before he can be a consistent fantasy option. He still has value in fantasy leagues because he posted solid numbers when healthy last season.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) suffered an ankle injury against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Aug. 8, but the injury isn't considered serious, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It looks like Coutee avoided a serious injury, but nagging issues have followed him around since he entered the league. He can be a WR3, especially in PPR formats, when healthy, but there are safer options available in the middle rounds.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (leg) was helped off the field after suffering a right leg injury in the preseason game against Green Bay Packers Thursday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Coutee has been a popular target of Deshaun Watson when healthy, but injuries have been in an issue for the receiver throughout his young career. He has the potential to be a WR3 in PPR formats, but stay tuned for an update on the severity of his latest issue.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee said his main goal for the 2019 season is to be able to play all 16 games.
Huddle Up: Coutee battled a hamstring injury last year, but he had some solid outings when healthy, including his 11-catch performance in the playoffs. Even with DeAndre Hopkins headlining the passing attack, Coutee is worth a look as a WR4 in PPR formats.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) said Thursday, Feb. 14, he is almost fully recovered from the chronic hamstring injuries which limited him miss 10 of the Texans' 17 regular-season/playoff games as a rookie this past season. 'I'm feeling great,' Coutee said. 'I'm feeling really good. I'm feeling like myself. The hamstring is good. I'm still resting a little bit. I'm going to start back training soon, but it's 100 percent.'
Huddle Up: DeAndre Hopkins will still be gobbling up the lion's share of the Texans' targets and Will Fuller will also be involved if he can come back from a torn ACL, but Coutee has sleeper potential, particularly in PPR formats, after averaging 5.6 receptions and 56.7 yards and catching a pair of TD passes in the seven games he did play last season.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee caught 11 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in his first playoff game, but the Texans lost to the Indianapolis Colts 21-7 Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Coutee played minimally in his first year with a nagging hamstring injury. When he did play with Will Fuller out, he was lights out. Houston boasts a solid wide receiver corps with DeAndre Hopkins, Coutee and Fuller, but Coutee isn't as valuable when Fuller is healthy. Still, he's an extremely alluring fantasy sleeper in 2019.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) will be active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a team official.
Huddle Up: Coutee has not played since the end of November because of the hamstring injury but has been a solid fantasy option when he has been healthy. He is a risky option this week because he could aggravate the injury but can also be considered a flex option in playoff fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is expected to play against the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Coutee has flashed plenty of potential when healthy, but he missed the final five games of the regular season. Needless to say, he could be dealing with some rust, making him a risky play in playoff contests.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 3, but is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Coutee is expected to be a game-time decision but was a full participant in all three practices this week. He has played well when he is healthy but may be too risky of an option for owners this week.
