Houston Texans: 3 players who could be difference-makers down the stretch
3. Keke Coutee
The Houston Texans have done well with Keke Coutee, as the rookie wide receiver has been exciting to watch when he’s on the field. Coutee has been able to spread the field for the Texans and make some very nice plays along the way.
What makes Coutee a possible difference-maker is the fact that he can be explosive for the team, and not only that, he’ll be able to make the Texans a dangerous team offensively if he’s able to stay healthy and overcome his hamstring issues moving forward.
The Texans have a potential difference-maker for the fact if Coutee isn’t on the field, that can cause a huge difference in the offense of the Texans, too. It allows the opponent to focus more on Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas, and that only makes things a little tougher on the Texans’ offense.
Coutee is a solid player at the slot position for the Texans, and not only can he help the rest of the wide receivers, but their overall talent can make him a more valuable player, too.
As the season continues, Coutee — who has 26 receptions for 273 yards and one touchdown — will be a difference-maker for this franchise, but whether if it will be positive or negative depends on if he is on the field playing or off the field injured.
