Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee caught five of his eight targets for 68 yards and lost a fumble in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14.
Huddle Up: It was a season high in receptions and targets for Coutee, but the fumble could prove costly for a player who has already seen sporadic playing time. He has shown potential in the past, but one decent performance is not enough to go start trusting Coutee.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee 'did a good job' in practice this week, head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: O'Brien recently revealed that Coutee's limited role in the offense was related to poor effort in practice, so this is at least a step in the right direction. That being said, fantasy owners can afford to take a wait-and-see approach before rushing to add the slot receiver.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee needs to be more 'detailed' during practices, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Coutee's issues in practice could help explain why he has managed just 13 catches this year and hasn't been involved much on offense. He's shown he can be a productive weapon out of the slot, but he isn't worth rostering in his current role.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee caught three passes for 25 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Coutee has not been a big factor in the passing game for most of the season but may receive a bigger role depending on Will Fuller's injury. He has some fantasy value but may not be a starting option at this point.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee registered four grabs for 39 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Coutee has totaled 10 receptions for 129 yards across four outings and he is still searching for his first score of 2019. As long as DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller remain healthy Coutee is nothing more than a low-end WR5 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee hauled in three of his four targets for 72 yards in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Coutee's season got off to a slow start due to an ankle injury. He was able to take advantage of Kenny Stills' absence and deliver usable numbers for his fantasy owners, although one has to wonder if Stills doesn't end up making him a non-factor sooner than later. At the moment, he's little more than a high-upside bench stash.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee posted just two catches for four yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Coutee is fighting Kenny Stills for crumbs behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller right now, so his fantasy appeal is rather marginal at the moment. Only consider using him in deeper leagues heading into Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Coutee likely will be active for the Week 2 game but his status in the passing game is still uncertain. He played well when healthy last season, but fantasy players may want to wait a week to see how he is used before considering him for their lineups.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and could play in Week 2 after being inactive for the Texans' season opener. 'I would say the arrow is trending toward him being able to play, but I think we're going to have to probably see how today goes and see how he feels,' Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Friday. 'We've got a ways to go before the game. You guys have seen him. He's been out there at practice, so we'll see. The inactives this week, will be interesting.'
Huddle Up: Coutee caught 28 passes in six games last season as a rookie, but the Texans' WR situation is more muddled now with a healthy Will Fuller and trade-acquistition Kenny Stills joining target monster DeAndre Hopkins. If Coutee plays, regard him as deeper-league flex option at best until we get a better idea of how the Texans' snap and target distribution plays out with a full complement of wideouts.

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: Coutee appears to be on track to play in Week 2, but his role in the passing game is uncertain. Fantasy players may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their starting lineups.
