Player Outlook
Coutee is looking at an uphill battle for meaningful playing time in the Colts offense this preseason. There's a chance he winds up as the team's primary slot option, but even if he gets the role (Parris Campbell would have to get hurt again), there isn't much upside for him to post reliable numbers on a week-to-week basis. Until it's clear he'll see lots of snaps, Coutee shouldn't be on any Fantasy rosters.

  • Colts' Keke Coutee: May have lead on backup job

    Coutee got starting reps in place of an injured Parris Campbell during Monday's practice and is listed as Campbell's backup on the Colts' initial preseason depth chart, 107.5 FM The Fan Indianapolis reports. Given Campbell's frequent injury history, it's worth noting who would get snaps in the slot if he were to get hurt again. Coutee appears to be the leading candidate to win that role, but he could also be getting deference early in camp as a veteran. Ashton Dulin could take over as the third receiver ahead of Coutee if a starter were to get hurt.

  • Colts' Keke Coutee: Sticking with Indianapolis

    Coutee signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday. Coutee spent the 2021 campaign on Indianapolis' practice squad and was elevated to the active roster for two games. He caught his only target for five yards in those two contests, and will compete for a roster spot in training camp if he remains with the team through the offseason.

  • Keke Coutee: Reverts to practice squad

    Coutee reverted to Indianapolis' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Coutee was elevated to the Colts' active roster in Week 16 with Zach Pascal placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The veteran wide receiver played 29 of the team's 70 offensive snaps but failed to record any stats in the contest. Coutee will have to wait for his next opportunity while on the Colts' practice squad.

  • Colts' Keke Coutee: Jumps to active roster

    The Colts elevated Coutee from the practice squad Saturday. Zach Pascal was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Coutee will join a receiving corps without one of its top three options Saturday at Arizona. Still, Michael Pittman, T.Y. Hilton and Ashton Dulin figure to see most of the snaps and targets at the position.

  • Keke Coutee: Heads to practice squad

    Coutee reverted to Indianapolis' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Coutee made his first appearance of the 2021 season in Week 7 against the 49ers, hauling in one catch for five yards. He was only on the field for four offensive snaps.

  • Colts' Keke Coutee: Gets first Colts reception

    Coutee had one reception for five yards on his only target in Sunday's 30-18 win at San Francisco. Coutee played four snaps on offense as it was his first game after being elevated from the practice squad. He could continue to have a small role in the offense if both T.Y. Hilton (quadriceps) and Parris Campbell (foot) remain out with injuries.

  • Colts' Keke Coutee: Elevated to active roster

    Coutee was elevated to the Colts' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, according to the team's official Twitter account. Coutee was added to the team's active roster ahead of a Sunday night tilt against the 49ers. The former Texans wideout will provide the Colts' offense with some much-needed depth at wide receiver with T.Y. Hilton ruled out and Parris Campbell placed on injured reserve. Even so, one can assume that Coutee will be hard-pressed to make much noise for fantasy purposes right out of the gate, as Michael Pittman and Zach Pascal are favorites to lead the team at the position.

  • Keke Coutee: Joining Indy's practice squad

    Coutee agreed Wednesday to join the Colts' practice squad, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports. The 24-year-old slot receiver went unclaimed after the Texans waived him Tuesday. The Colts swooped in with a practice squad offer, likely taking note after Coutee caught 13 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown in two games against them last season. He also had a 100-yard game against Indianapolis in his NFL debut back in Week 4 of 2018.

  • Keke Coutee: Waived by Houston

    Coutee has been waived by the Texans, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. In the wake of the team's initial roster cut-downs, the Texans' wideout corps features Brandin Cooks, Chris Conley, Nico Collins, Anthony Miller (shoulder) and return specialist Andre Roberts (knee). While it's a bit of surprise that Coutee was waived Tuesday, the 2018 fourth-rounder has had a tough time staying on the field during his pro career and might benefit from a change of scenery.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Pair of grabs in preseason victory

    Coutee secured both of his targets for 29 yards in the Texans' 20-14 preseason win over the Cowboys on Saturday night. Coutee tied with multiple players for the team lead in receptions on the night in a solid showing by preseason standards. The oft-injured fourth-year wideout appears to have an inside track for No. 3 receiver duties heading into the final week of preseason considering Anthony Miller (shoulder) may not be ready to play until Week 2.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Opportunity knocks Saturday

    Coutee caught two of five targets for 21 yards in Saturday's 26-7 win over Green Bay in preseason Week 1. Coutee may have caught a big break in his competition for the top spot at slot receiver, as Anthony Miller, his main competitor, suffered what's initially reported to be a "slight dislocation" of the shoulder, per Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site. Whatever "slight" may mean, Miller could miss practice time and allow Coutee to establish a rapport with presumptive starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Behind Conley on depth chart

    Coutee is listed as a backup to Chris Conley on the Texans' unofficial depth chart, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports. The depth chart didn't make any allowances for slot receivers, so Coutee and Anthony Miller are listed at wide receiver and on the second unit. Coutee and Miller are expected to primarily play in the slot, so either one could get ample work in Houston's three-wide formations.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Developing chemistry with Taylor

    Coutee has emerged as a favored target for quarterback Tyrod Taylor during the first week of training camp, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports. Coutee was handed an opportunity when the Texans traded Randall Cobb to the Packers, removing one impediment to playing time in the slot. He's taken advantage, but things may change as recent addition Anthony Miller, another receiver with heavy usage in the slot, gets comfortable with the new offense. Thus far in camp, Coutee has received as many snaps with Taylor as Miller has, if not more.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Competing with Cobb for slot work

    Coutee and Randall Cobb are the main candidates for slot snaps in Houston this season, John McClain of The Houston Chronicle reports. Coutee got some perimeter work late last season when Houston's wide receiver group was decimated by injuries, but he's otherwise been a slot specialist throughout his pro career, much like the 30-year-old Cobb. It is possible one of the two could get more playing time on the outside this year, considering Chris Conley and rookie third-round pick Nico Collins look like the best bets for the starting job across from Brandin Cooks. In terms of the slot role, Coutee won't have it easy trying to dispatch Cobb, whose $8.25 million base salary is fully guaranteed. On the other hand, Coutee did have 362 receiving yards over the final five weeks of 2020, and he's only 24 years old as he enters the last season of his rookie contract.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Finishes season strong

    Coutee caught six of seven targets for 90 yards in Sunday's 41-38 loss to the Titans. Coutee was on the receiving end of two long plays: a 42-yard catch in the first quarter and a 29-yard reception in the final minute of the game that set up Houston's final score. The 23-year-old wide receiver resuscitated a moribund career during the second half of the season when injuries and personnel decisions opened up an opportunity for him. Over the final seven games, Coutee caught 31 of 38 targets for 389 yards (12.5 YPC) with three touchdowns. There was still an issue with fumbles, but his contributions were one of the few positives the Texans experienced in 2020. The 2018 fourth-round draft pick has one year left on his contract, and he gave the eventual new regime -- hiring a new head coach and general manager is the first order of business for Houston during the offseason -- something to consider as it constructs the 2021 version of the Texans.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Cleared for Week 17 action

    Coutee (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans. After following up limited practices Wednesday and Thursday with a full workout Friday, Coutee looks to be in the clear to handle his usual starting role in the season finale. Interim head coach Romeo Crennel hasn't suggested that any of the team's healthy players will be rested as the 4-11 Texans close out their season, so look for Coutee to remain a key part of the passing attack. Over his last four outings, Coutee has played no fewer than 63 percent of the Texans' offensive snaps, turning in a 21-272-2 line on 24 targets during that span.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Limited Wednesday

    Coutee (foot) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report. Houston conducted a walk-through session, but Coutee would have had his reps capped if the team held a traditional practice. The slot receiver was also limited by a foot injury last Wednesday, but he returned to full practice participation by Thursday. If Coutee follows a similar pattern this week, he should shed his injury designation ahead of Sunday's season finale versus the Titans.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Makes five grabs in loss

    Coutee brought in all five targets for 54 yards in the Texans' 37-31 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. He also committed a fumble, but it was recovered by the offense. Coutee checked in second in receptions, receiving yards and targets to Brandin Cooks, serving as a dependable complementary option for Deshaun Watson in the high-scoring loss. The third-year speedster has been solid since Randall Cobb (IR-toe) and Will Fuller (suspension) were sidelined, posting a 21-272-2 line over his last four contests. Coutee will look to finish off the campaign in strong fashion at the expense of the Titans in a Week 17 divisional battle.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Returns to full practice

    Coutee (foot) returned to a full practice Thursday. Coutee was limited Wednesday, but his return to a full session Thursday paves the way for him to be out there Sunday against the 3-10-1 Bengals. With the Texans' wide receiver corps having thinned out as the season has progressed, Coutee's settled into a steady enough role to merit fantasy lineup consideration over the past five weeks. In that span, he's caught 20 of 26 targets for 245 yards to go along with three TDs.

  • Texans' Keke Coutee: Limited to start week

    Coutee was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a foot injury. The Texans may simply be taking a cautious approach to Coutee's health, given the team's overall lack of depth at wide receiver. Coutee once again handled a major role in last weekend's loss to the Colts, playing 80 percent of the offensive snaps and churning out five receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown, though he committed a costly fumble near the goal line. Interim head coach Romeo Crennel has made it clear that despite the mistake, Coutee -- if healthy -- will remain a key component of the offense Week 16 versus the Bengals.
