Coutee left the first preseason game with an ankle injury

Summary

Expectations were on the rise for Keke Coutee in his rookie season, however a hamstring injury that lingered for most of the year held him in check. He missed the first three games of the season due to the injury before striking it big in Week 4 with 11 receptions on 15 targets and 109 yards in his debut. The following week he added 6 catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. He re-injured his hamstring in Week 7 and missed the next three games. After two more decent outings, he injured his hamstring once again and was shut down for the rest of the year. When active, Coutee is a key contributor on offense and is often the hot read for Deshaun Watson. In a recent interview, Watson said Coutee is playing with a lot more confidence and is "playing a lot faster". He Added "anytime he's on the field you have to find a way to get him the ball. You never know what he's going to do with the ball in his hands". If Coutee remains healthy he can develop into a fantasy relevant wide receiver on a team loaded with offensive weapons. That injury label is concerning, especially after a preseason Week 1 ankle injury that will keep him shelved, possibly until Week 1. (August 10)

Texans | Keke Coutee still not ready to practice (Thu Aug 22, 02:18 PM) - Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) remains sidelined with a sprained ankle, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Our View: Coutee is very questionable for Week 1, which makes Duke Johnson a very intriguing PPR RB2/Flex in the season opener against the Saints and for however long Coutee is out. Coutee had built a lot of momentum this offseason, but couldn't sustain it through the preseason. He's still worth a pick and stash in the second half of PPR drafts.

Texans | Keke Coutee to miss time (Sat Aug 10, 03:28 PM) - 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.

Our View: Coutee's Week 1 is not a sure thing, and his ADP should drop, although it wasn't reflecting his true ceiling demonstrated last year when he wasn't 100%. He should still be in draft plans.
