Week 12: vs Indianapolis Colts - $4800

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Houston's passing offense had quite the forgettable game last week as Deshaun Watson finished with one of the worst games of his career while suffering an ankle injury in the process. Watson didn't miss any time in last week's game and is expected to suit up this week, but he certainly appeared to be injured and could be limited coming off the short week in this Thursday's game. Watson had an up and down game against the Colts back in Week 7, forced into two interceptions while the Colts limited mostly to underneath routes. That Week 7 outing against the Colts was the start of a relative resurgence from DeAndre Hopkins, who had a pretty slow start to the season. Since Week 7, Hopkins has averaged86.5 receiving yards per game with two touchdowns and double-digit targets in all four games. Kenny Stills had his best game of the season against the Colts with 105 receiving yards, but he has been relatively quiet since then despite what should have been increased opportunities with Will Fuller sidelined. Fuller remains questionable coming into this week's game, but it would be tough to trust him even if he does suit up. The Colts defense has fared pretty well in recent weeks, giving up the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks since the last time they faced this Texans offense in Week 7. They have received the benefit of facing some very poor passing offenses over that span though, but this group took advantage of it with five interceptions over those past five games--including two against Watson in Week 7. Justin Houston has been spectacular on the defensive line, accounting for at least one sack in each of his last six outings. However, the Colts front seven as a unit has not managed to apply consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks this season, ranking near the bottom of the league in pressure percentage (9%) while amassing just a league-average 25 sacks. The secondary lacks standout playmakers, but they have done a relatively good job as a unit against opposing wide receivers. DeAndre Hopkins has the talent to overcome any individual matchup he should see this week, but the rest of the Texans pass-catchers could struggle against the Colts.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 11 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec - 4 points, $4800)

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 - 10.4 points, $4900)

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 - 5.9 points, $4900)

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.
