Keke Coutee – WR

The Vikings have six wide receivers on their 53-man roster. Two of which are guaranteed to play every snap if they are healthy. Wide receivers Adam Theilen and Justin Jefferson are going to do their part in making the Vikings one of the most explosive offenses in the league.

They also have a good supporting cast. Second-year receiver K.J. Osborn has been impressive throughout camp and when he has played in the preseason, the same goes for rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette who has been electric when the Vikings have put the ball in his hands, whether that be on a jet sweep or a wide receiver screen.

Another name that was in contention for that No. 3 receiver spot was Chad Bebee, who is now out for the season with a foot injury.

With Dede Westbrook still not 100 percent healthy, the Vikings could look at a cheap sure-fire option that could slide in day one and be productive. Keke Coutee has dealt with unfortunate injuries since he was drafted in the fourth round in 2018, but when he has been on the field he makes plays.

Provided he can stay healthy, Coutee would be an amazing complementary piece to arguably the best wide receiver duo in the league.
