Texans' Keke Coutee expected to operate as #2 wide receiver moving forward

Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee will be the Texans' #2 wide receiver for the next couple of weeks, according to The Athletic's Aaron Reiss.

What It Means:

After a slow start to his career due to injuries and being phased out by former coach Bill O'Brien, Coutee will finally have a chance to establish himself as a consistent option in Houston. With Will Fuller suspended, Kenny Stills released, and Randall Cobb (toe) on injured reserve, Coutee finds himself second on the Texans' depth chart. Isaiah Coulter is also expected to be involved down the stretch as Houston's third or fourth option. Our models expect Coutee to see 6.9 targets against the Colts in Week 13 and Coulter to see 4.3.

Coutee's Week 13 projection includes 5.1 receptions, 63.1 yards, 0.38 touchdowns, and 11.1 FanDuel points.
