The 2019 season for Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee has been a letdown as there were some big expectations for him during this past offseason.

Keke Coutee of the Houston Texans is back on the inactive list for the Week 15 game at the Tennessee Titans. To be honest, this entire season for the slot wide receiver has been a bit of a disappointment as he’s been inactive or benched more than he’s been on the field during games.

For the Week 15 game Coutee is one of the seven players listed as inactive for the Texans, and even when he’s been on the active roster on game day the results haven’t been there as needed by the Texans.

This season, Coutee has 21 receptions for 247 yards with no touchdowns. He’s averaging 11.8 yards per game receiving, but has been active in eight games in ’19.

Last Sunday, Coutee had maybe his best game of the season after being inactive for the previous two games when he made five receptions for 68 yards, including one catch for 22 yards against the Broncos.

CBS Sports had the following in a RotoWire Staff fantasy football report about Coutee:

"“Unfortunately, the second-year wideout’s otherwise strong stat line (against Denver) was blemished by a lost fumble that Denver returned for a touchdown.”"

The inconsistent activity of Coutee being on the game day roster has been frustrating to say the least. Unless something drastic happens — like another injury to a wide receiver — for the rest of the regular season we might not see a lot of the second-year player from here on out due to the Texans having DeAndre Hopkins, Kenny Stills and Will Fuller on the roster as the “Big 3” wide receivers.
