Keke Coutee Fantasy Football News 2019

6:11pm EST 11/21/19

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game against the Colts. Consider him a risk/reward WR3 in his 1st action since Week 7. WR Keke Coutee is a healthy scratch with Fuller back.

Texans WR Will Fuller has a "rather significant hamstring pull" and is expected to miss "several weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Houston has a Week 10 bye, so plan on Week 11 being the earliest we'll see Fuller back. His absence leaves Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee as the Texans' #2 and #3 WRs. With Fuller exiting early in yesterday's loss to the Colts, Stills played 94% of the offensive snaps and Coutee 69%. Stills is the preferred fantasy play while Fuller is out, but Coutee could also provide WR3 value.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Colts after missing the previous 2 weeks. It’s a boost to QB Deshaun Watson’s outlook, but Stills would be a desperation Week 7 fantasy play. His return also figures to cut into WR Keke Coutee’s playing time.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday, so he's seemingly on track to return for this weekend's game against the Colts. That'd take WR Keke Coutee out of fantasy lineup consideration.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That again leaves Keke Coutee as Houston’s clear #3 WR — although it’s worth noting that he played only 44% of the offensive snaps with Stills out last week.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) is not expected to play today against the Chiefs, according to ESPN's Diana Russini. Stills is officially questionable after putting in limited practices for the 2nd straight week. Stills' absence would seem to help WR Keke Coutee, but the slot man actually played less (44%) with Stills out last Sunday than he did the week before (57%), when Stills left early. Coutee's a low-end fantasy option at best.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs, according to HC Bill O'Brien. Stills was in the same boat last week before ending up inactive. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but Stills shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy plans. His absence would make WR Keke Coutee a viable flier -- just note that he played only 44% of Houston's offensive snaps last week.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring, ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. That makes WR Keke Coutee an intriguing fantasy flier.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR "is viewed as unlikely to play" today against the Falcons. Stills put in limited practices all week on a bad ankle and hamstring. His absence would deliver some sleeper upside to WR Keke Coutee, especially as a cheap DFS option.

Texans WR Kenny Stills suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Panthers and is officially questionable to return. Stills' absence leaves Keke Coutee as Houston's #3 WR.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in a full week of practice. He’s ready to make his 2019 debut against the Jaguars on Sunday. It’ll be interesting to see how Coutee fits in alongside DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Kenny Stills. We’d try not to use Coutee in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. Barring a setback, he should be ready to make his 2019 debut against the Jaguars on Sunday. We'll have to see how Coutee fits alongside WRs DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Kenny Stills -- so we'd try not to use Coutee in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Keke Coutee is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. Coutee's working back from his preseason ankle sprain and managed limited practices all week. He seems likely to be ready for Week 2. We'll keep an eye on his status.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Friday that there's a "possibility" WR Keke Coutee (ankle) plays against the Saints on Monday night. "Touch and go, practiced yesterday. He did some decent things," O'Brien said. "We'll have to see how it goes. It's a long season. It was a pretty significant injury to his ankle." Coutee is shaping up as a game-time decision, but he'll be a risky fantasy play if he ends up active.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday. HC Bill O'Brien has gone back and forth over the past week on Coutee's Week 1 status. Unless he's able to put in a full practice on Friday or Saturday, we'd avoid him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Tuesday that he's "not hopeful" about WR Keke Coutee's chances of being ready for Week 1. That's a bit surprising after Coutee practiced on Monday and O'Brien said he was "headed in the right direction." But Coutee's injury always looked like one that might cost him the start of the season. We'd expect him back at some point in September but will continue to monitor his progress.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) returned for what the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson called a "light" practice on Monday. It was Coutee's 1st work since spraining his ankle in the preseason opener on August 8. HC Bill O'Brien said Coutee is "headed in the right direction." He has 2 weeks to get ready for Houston's regular-season opener against the Saints on Monday Night Football.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien gave an update on WR Keke Coutee's ankle injury Saturday, and he didn't sound positive. Seemingly answering a question about whether Coutee or QB A.J. McCarron would be back soon, the coach said he didn't "expect either one of them to be back soon relative to what soon means," according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. O'Brien added: "Like tomorrow? No. A week from now? Probably not. We'll just keep playing it by ear." We'll see if Coutee's injury lingers beyond that rough timeline projection.

Texans WR Keke Coutee has been diagnosed with an ankle injury that "isn't regarded as serious," according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. Exhale. This looked like a potentially serious injury when it happened, but it now sounds like Coutee has a shot to be ready for the start of the season. We'll look for further updates on his status. For now, we're not moving him down the WR rankings.

Texans WR Keke Coutee suffered an apparent right knee injury in Thursday night's preseason opener. He was in obvious pain and was carted back to the locker room. "It doesn't look good," longtime beat writer John McClain tweeted. We'll update Coutee's status as soon as we learn more.
