Week 14: vs Denver Broncos

All WR vs DEN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Deshaun Watson has shown the ability to carry this Texans team on multiple occasions this season, including last week in what was a stellar performance despite only putting up 234 passing yards. Watson was accurate all over the field, throwing for three touchdowns while actually completing four of his six pass attempts when targeting receivers 10 or more yards downfield. Deandre Hopkins finished with a nice game last week, but he actually saw a dip in playing time with just 84 percent of the snaps compared to playing at least 93 percent of offensive snaps in all previous weeks. This is nothing to be concerned about at this point though, as Hopkins continues to lead this team in targets while offering a strong fantasy scoring floor and ceiling alike. Both Will Fuller and Kenny Stills remain more boom or bust options, while Darren Fells simply continues to amaze with his seventh touchdown of the season last week. Fells has seen three or fewer targets in all but three games this season and has exceeded 50 yards in just two games, but his size makes him an impeccable red zone target who will continue to be in sight for Watson. Denver's passing defense has played fairly well this season, ranking fifth in passing yards allowed (210.6) while giving up the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game (PPR scoring) to both quarterbacks and wide receivers. The past three weeks have been a slight regression though, as opposing quarterbacks have passed for multiple touchdowns in all three games while two wide receivers have exceeded 115 receiving yards--the only two to exceed that mark all season against Denver. Chris Harris is their lock-down cornerback and should see most snaps shadowing DeAndre Hopkins, but these other two cornerbacks are very beatable in coverage, leading to plus matchups for Will Fuller and Kenny Stills. Play from the Denver safeties has been stellar though, which has led to a limitation of big plays by opposing passing offenses. The Broncos pass rush has been inconsistent all season, especially after their dreadful start. While they have improved as the season progressed, this team still has generated two or fewer sacks in three of their last six games with a below-average 10 percent pressure rate. Von Miller is banged up and at risk of missing this week after he was sidelined for last week's game. In addition, the team's sack leader Derek Wolfe was placed on injured reserve this week and will miss the remainder of the season. Limited pressure on Deshaun Watson plus a healthy Will Fuller could lead to more big plays in this game than the Defense has been accustomed to dealing with.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 11 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

The return of Keke Coutee happened on Sunday, and it did not go according to plan. Sloppy routes and a dropped pass, Coutee had three receptions for 25 yards. It was clear Coutee was rusty, and it was a while since he played with the offense. It will be interesting to see his usage moving forward with the offense if he can clean up his routes in a hurry.

2019 Week 7 vs IND (5 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 1 rush)

Coutee's usage continues to go up, and with injuries around him, his spot remains safe. Coutee did have a four-yard touchdown run that saw him run an option look with Deshaun Watson. Watson pitched him the ball late, and he snagged it with one hand to job into the end zone for the first touchdown of the game. Coutee was also able to catch three passes for 25 yards, with his longest reception being 13-yards. He did have a costly drop late in the game when the Texans were driving for the potential game-winning drive. Watson hit Coutee in the hands, but he was unable to corral the throw in which the ball bounced into a Colts defender's hands to end the game.

2019 Week 6 vs KC (6 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)

Coutee has been put back into the slot wide receiver role for the offense, and he has been more a scheme opener for others than a real threat for the offense. He did have four receptions for 39 yards, but he is being targeted to defeat the blitz. He has a good synergy with Watson to be his hot read in those blitz looks, which gives him some easy receptions in this offense.
