Player Outlook
We've seen flashes of how good Sutton can be, and hopefully this season he puts it all together for a breakout campaign, especially with the addition of Russell Wilson at quarterback in Denver. Sutton is worth drafting as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues as early as Round 5. Sutton had a solid sophomore campaign in 2019 when he averaged 13.8 PPR points per game, but he suffered a torn ACL the following season. He had some good moments in 2021, scoring at least 23 PPR points in three of his first six games, but he finished the season averaging just 8.8 PPR points per game. Wilson should bring out the best in Sutton, and he has the potential to be a weekly starter in all formats. With Tim Patrick out for the year after tearing his ACL in training camp, the targets could be concentrated with Sutton standing out as the alpha.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Practices fully

    Sutton (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Ellie Kinney of The Broncos' official site reports. With the 26-year-old moving past the minor shoulder issue, he can now resume building his on-field chemistry with new franchise quarterback Russell Wilson. With Tim Patrick (knee) set the miss the coming season, Sutton and Jerry Jeudy profile as the Broncos' clear-cut top options at wide receiver, with their fantasy prospects bolstered by the likelihood that they'll see steady volume and benefit from the upgrade Wilson presents at quarterback.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Dealing with shoulder issue

    Sutton (shoulder) was present for Tuesday's practice but he didn't participate in wide receiver or team drills, Ellie Kinney of the Broncos' official site reports. Afterward, coach Nathaniel Hackett relayed that the Broncos' starting wideout is working though "a little shoulder thing." With that in mind, consider Sutton day-to-day ahead of Saturday's preseason opener against the Cowboys.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Restructures deal with Denver

    The Broncos converted $10.5 million of Sutton's contract into a signing bonus Sunday to create $7.875 million in salary cap room, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Sutton inked a four-year, $60.8 million extension with the Broncos in November, and it didn't take long for the team to rework the deal in order to create some cap space. The 26-year-old caught 58 of 98 targets for 776 yards and two touchdowns in 17 games last season, and his outlook for 2022 is on the rise because Denver will have a major upgrade at quarterback following the acquisition of Russell Wilson.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Quiet in season finale

    Sutton caught one of three targets for 13 yards while also completing his only pass attempt for 16 yards in Saturday's 28-24 loss to the Chiefs. Sutton ended the season in underwhelming fashion, which was a common refrain through the Broncos' first 16 games. The 26-year-old finishes with 58 catches for 776 yards and just two touchdowns, with shaky quarterback play likely being a significant factor in his disappointing numbers after he inked a four-year, $60.8 million contract extension in November. The Broncos could look to free agency or the draft in order to address their quarterback woes, as neither Teddy Bridgewater or Drew Lock appear to be the long-term answer at the position. An upgrade at quarterback could be what helps to take this offense to the next level and make Sutton a fantasy star.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Three grabs against Bolts

    Sutton caught three of five targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Chargers. With Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick both unable to clear the COVID-19 protocols in time to suit up Sunday, Sutton was the Broncos' top wideout and put together his best yardage total since Week 7. The team's passing game could be at full strength, including the return of Teddy Bridgewater (concussion), in Week 18 against Kansas City however, which would likely limit Sutton's upside.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Suits up Sunday

    Sutton (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.   Sutton, whom coach Vic Fangio indicated earlier in the week could potentially land on the reserve/COVID-19 list, approached the contest officially listed as questionable, but he's available Sunday after all. With Jerry Jeudy (illness) and Tim Patrick (illness) currently on the COVID list, Sutton -- whose production of late has been modest -- is a bounce-candidate versus Los Angeles, given that he seems likely to see his share of Week 17 targets while heading a wideout corps that also includes Kendall Hinton, Diontae Spencer, Seth Williams and Travis Fulgham.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: In line to travel with team

    Sutton (illness) has been cleared to travel with the Broncos in advance of Sunday's game against the Chargers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Sutton, whom coach Vic Fangio previously indicated could land on reserve/COVID-19 list, is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest, but Rapoport indicates the wideout is expected to play against the Chargers. If so, Sutton could be busy in week 17, with Jerry Jeudy (illness) and Tim Patrick (illness) currently on the COVID list.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Listed as questionable for Sunday

    Sutton is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers after being listed as non-participant in Friday's walk-through practice due to an illness, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports. Head coach Vic Fangio previously relayed that Sutton may land on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but that hasn't happened as of Friday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for daily transactions. That said, both Troy Renck of Denver 7 News and Mike Klis of 9News Denver indicate that Sutton's status is pending, so his availability remains worth monitoring closely now that he's officially questionable for Week 17. Fellow wideouts Jerry Jeudy (illness) and Tim Patrick (illness) are currently on the team's COVID-19 list and have already been ruled out for Sunday, leaving Diontae Spencer, Kendall Hinton and practice-squad call-ups Travis Fulgham and Seth Williams as Denver's only fully healthy receivers at the moment.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Could land on COVID list

    Head coach Vic Fangio said Friday that Sutton may land on the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. If that happens, Denver's wideout depth would be tested, as Tim Patrick (illness) is already on the COVID list and Jerry Jeudy is expected to be officially placed on it later Friday. As things stand, Kendall Hinton and Diontae Spencer are currently the team's wide receivers without any concerns about their availability.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Minimal production in loss

    Sutton caught four of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 17-13 loss to the Raiders. Sutton continues to be plagued by an ineffective passing game, though his 33 yards in Sunday's contest were good for his highest total in the last seven weeks. The 26-year-old wideout is having an extremely disappointing fantasy season, having found the end zone just twice all season while averaging just under 47 yards per game. Sutton will try to get back on track in Week 17 against a Chargers defense giving up the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Upgrades to full activity

    Sutton (wrist) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Sutton's reps were capped in the Broncos' first Week 16 session Wednesday, but his ability to upgrade to full activity a day later clears the way for him to play Sunday against the Raiders. With Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) ruled out for the contest, Sutton will be drawing targets this week from Drew Lock, who will be making his first start of the season after previously coming on in relief of an injured Bridgewater on three other occasions. The quarterback change can't hurt Sutton's fantasy outlook, as he's been held to two or fewer receptions in each of the Broncos' last seven games after averaging 5.4 catches through the first seven contests.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Limited session Wednesday

    Sutton was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday due to an wrist injury, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports. Sutton's name popped up on the Broncos' fairly lengthy Week 16 injury report Wednesday, though it's unclear if his wrist issue is anything that might affect his status for Sunday's game against the Raiders. In Denver's 15-10 loss to the Bengals in Week 15, Sutton logged a 92-percent snap share and caught just two passes for 12 yards.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Can't produce with seven targets

    Sutton recorded two receptions on seven targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Bengals. Sutton led the team with seven targets, but he managed to finish only fourth on the team in both yards and receptions. Notably, he was targeted only twice in the second half with Drew Lock the primary quarterback after Teddy Bridgewater exited with a concussion. Regardless of who is under center in Denver, Sutton has been a large disappointment across the last seven games as he hasn't recorded more than two receptions or topped 40 yards in that span.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Quiet in win

    Sutton caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Lions. Anyone hoping for a bounce-back performance from Sutton in a favorable matchup against the Lions will be forced to wait another week. The wideout's one-catch performance Sunday was his latest in a string of disappointing fantasy days. In fact, since Jerry Jeudy's return in Week 8, Sutton is averaging roughly 19 receiving yards per game and has failed to have more than two catches in any of the last six contests. The 26-year-old is proving to be extremely hard to trust with the fantasy playoffs ahead. Sutton's next three matchups against the Bengals, Raiders and Chargers make for a tough schedule down the stretch, so fantasy managers may want to look elsewhere.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Catches two passes in loss

    Sutton caught two of six targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 22-9 loss to the Chiefs. Sutton continued his streak of disappointing performances, making it four straight games with under 30 receiving yards. His six targets tied fellow wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, but it was running back Javonte Williams who saw a team-high nine targets against the Chiefs. The 26-year-old wideout is struggling to produce for fantasy, and he has become very difficult to trust each week with the Broncos' continued struggles through the air. Week 14 presents a possible bounce-back spot for Sutton, as the Broncos will host the Lions.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Quiet in Sunday's win

    Sutton caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Chargers. None of the Broncos' big three wideouts reached 30 receiving yards in the game, as Denver's defense and running backs carried the day. Sutton has now gone three straight games with three targets or fewer and under 30 yards, making him a risky option in Week 13 against Kansas City.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Continues to disappoint

    Sutton secured two of three targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Eagles. Sutton struggled to get anything going against Philadelphia, and the wideout ended the contest with just under a nine percent target share in the Broncos' passing game. Fellow wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick saw more targets than Sutton, but neither did much with their extra opportunities. Since Jeudy rejoined the lineup, Sutton has been an underwhelming player for fantasy and has seemingly taken a backseat to the other options in the Broncos' offense. Teddy Bridgewater's play in 2021 doesn't appear to be strong enough to support multiple pass catchers for fantasy, so it is possible that Sutton will continue to struggle to achieve consistent production. The 26-year-old will look to bounce back following the team's Week 11 bye.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Catches one pass in win

    Sutton caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over Dallas. On a day when the Broncos offense had surprising success against the Cowboys, Sutton was unable to get anything going. The wideout's two targets were the second-lowest of any Broncos pass catcher. On the other hand, teammate Jerry Jeudy saw a team-high eight targets in the contest. One would expect the target share to even out as the season progresses, but Jeudy's return means that Sutton may have games where he is less involved than fantasy managers would hope for. The 26-year-old will look to bounce back when the Broncos host the Eagles in Week 10.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Only two catches in Sunday's win

    Sutton caught two of four targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over Washington. The Broncos had what seemed to be a great matchup for their passing game against a vulnerable Washington secondary, but Sutton -- or any other Denver receiver -- wasn't able to take advantage. It's the third time this season the fourth-year wideout's been held to 40 yards or less, but Sutton may need to be a lot more productive in a Week 9 clash with the Cowboys.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Five grabs in Week 7 loss

    Sutton secured all five targets for 68 yards in the Broncos' 17-14 loss to the Browns on Thursday night. The star wideout tied with Noah Fant for second on the team in receptions, and his yardage total, fueled by a team-high 31-yard grab, easily paced either club on the night. Sutton did see a notable drop from the 14 targets he'd logged Week 6 against the Raiders, but it wasn't unexpected on a night when Teddy Bridgewater only put up 33 attempts and targeted nine different players. Sutton will look to bounce back with a bump in his overall numbers against the vulnerable Washington secondary in a Week 8 home matchup a week from Sunday.
