Keke Coutee ridiculously efficient when targeted deep in 2017

Texas Tech’s Keke Coutee had an absolutely dominant 2017 season. In total, Coutee amassed 1,429 receiving yards on 93 receptions, good for 15.4 yards per play.

According to Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus, he could’ve had even more, if he was just targeted a few more times.

Pro Football Focus defines the 21-30 yard range as the “border” between intermediate and deep passes.

Coutee ranked eighth in the nation in terms of the yards he amassed on deep passing plays, but was not targeted on said plays as much as 113 other receivers in the nation. Essentially, if Texas Tech were to look at the numbers, they might designed a few more deep passing plays for Coutee, since he excelled at them.

45.1 yards per deep pass reception is nothing to sneeze at. Coutee was absolutely lethal in most situations for Texas Tech, and had success in the kick return game as well. 93 receptions is already a lot of touches, but from the numbers, the Red Raiders maybe should’ve got Coutee the ball more than they already did.
