Keke, Do You Love Me? Keke Coutee is a Prime Week 5 Waiver Wire Option After 15 Target Debut

Will Fuller just can’t stay on the field, and it’s opened things up for rookie Keke Coutee, who led the Texans in targets against the Colts with a whopping 15. Coutee, a fourth round rookie from Texas Tech, stepped up in both Bruce Ellington’s (placed on IR) and Fuller’s absences with 11 receptions and 109 yards on those 15 targets. Fuller, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury since training camp, could be brought back slowly, which will make Coutee a popular waiver wire option this week.

What’s even more wild about Coutee’s incredible debut is that he set a modern NFL record for most receptions in a debut. Yep, Keke will be in the NFL record books. Coming from Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid system, the former Red Raider is no stranger to a high target total. Couttee totaled 1,429 yards and 10 touchdowns on 93 receptions during his final year in Lubbock, and can really do it all. He can take the top off of the defense using his 4.43 speed and can quickly separate out of the slot — which was why he was compared to John Brown from NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein. Target this guy on your waiver wire, because he has a legit chance to be peppered by Deshaun Watson, and will face limited defensive coverage with DeAndre Hopkins by his side.
