Player Outlook
Expectations shouldn't be too lofty for Sutton even after his 2023 season when he scored 10 touchdowns. That's because Sutton failed to average even six targets per game in Denver's conservative offense and figures to be limited again in his opportunities in 2024. It doesn't help that Sutton missed offseason workouts over a contract dispute, nor is it a positive that he'll catch passes from a rookie -- even one that comes with a lot of collegiate experience like Bo Nix. Here's the reality: Sutton hasn't popped for over 12 PPR points per game since 2019, and even then it was 13.9. Unless Sutton's situation changes, think of him as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best worth grabbing in the middle rounds.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: May still consider holdout

    Sutton is still unhappy with his contract and suggested Tuesday that he might consider holding out from training camp, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. It would be unusual for a player to report to June minicamp (the first mandatory team activities of the year) and then hold out for the start of training camp. Sutton revealed earlier this week that he had minor ankle surgery in the offseason and was away from the team during OTAs as a result, but it sounds like displeasure with his contract may also have been a factor. While most of his Tuesday comments reflected optimism about eventually reaching an agreement, Sutton also said negotiations "are at a stalemate in a sense." He has two years remaining on his contract, scheduled for $13.6 million in compensation this season ($2 million) and $14 million next year (none guaranteed). Sutton's comments suggest he wants a contract extension, but it won't be shocking if he ultimately settles for an adjustment that adds guaranteed money without adding years. Meanwhile, there's no indication of his ankle still being a problem.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Had offseason surgery, feels good

    Sutton said Tuesday he underwent ankle surgery earlier this offseason and was away from the team during OTAs as a result of his rehab, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Sutton added that he feels healthy for the beginning of June minicamp, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. It was presumed that Sutton's absence during OTAs related mostly to ongoing talks on a contract extension, which he said Tuesday are still at a "stalemate." The wideout still has two years remaining on his deal with Denver, but with only $2 million in guarantees.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: To attend minicamp

    Sutton said Thursday he will attend Denver's mandatory minicamp after having skipped voluntary OTAs, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports. Sutton trained privately and away from the team during OTAs, but he'll be present for the start of mandatory offseason activities next week. The wideout still appears to desire a new contract, as only $2 million is guaranteed of the roughly $27.6 million remaining on his current deal, which ties him with the Broncos for the next two season. Following the trade of Jerry Jeudy to the Browns earlier this offseason, Sutton is positioned as the clear top target for whoever starts at QB this season, making him an especially key factor for Denver's offense. Behind Sutton on the depth chart are Josh Reynolds, Marvin Mims, Tim Patrick (Achilles) and Troy Franklin.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Not at voluntary OTAs

    Sutton (ankle) wants a new contract and hasn't reported to voluntary OTAs, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Sutton has two seasons remaining on a four-year, $60 million extension, scheduled for a $13 million base salary in 2024 ($2 million guaranteed) and then $13.5 million in 2025 (no guarantees). He scored a career-high 10 touchdowns in 16 games last season, though 90 targets were his fewest since 2020 -- the year he suffered an ACL tear Week 1 -- and he still hasn't come close to matching his career-high 1,112 yards from 2019. The 28-year-old won't necessarily hold out from mandatory team activities later this spring, but the situation is at least worth keeping an eye on until he gets an extension or contract adjustment, or otherwise reports to the Broncos. There's been no indication of his Week 18 ankle injury lingering into the offseason, with the main concern at this point being the lack of a starting-caliber QB on Denver's roster. The team also appears thin at wide receiver, where the starting job across from Sutton could end up going to any of Josh Reynolds, Marvin Mims, Tim Patrick (Achilles) or Brandon Johnson.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Catches one pass in loss

    Sutton played 28 snaps on offense and caught one of four targets for two yards in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Raiders before departing with an ankle injury. Though the ankle injury spelled an early end to his final appearance of the season, the veteran wideout will presumably be fully healthy for Denver's offseason program. Sutton finished the 2023 campaign with team highs in both catches (59) and receiving yards (772) while also scoring a career-high 10 touchdowns in 16 appearances. The 28-year-old operated as the team's No. 1 receiver and a focal point of their passing game, leading Denver with 90 targets and 48.3 receiving yards per game. Sutton's fantasy outlook heading into 2024 will hinge on how Denver elects to address the quarterback position, as the team is expected to part ways with Russell Wilson in the offseason.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Injures ankle Sunday

    Sutton exited Sunday's game against the Raiders due to an ankle injury, Ryan McFadden of The Denver Post reports. Prior to being forced out of the contest, Sutton had caught one of his four targets for two yards. While he is sidelined, Jerry Jeudy, Marvin Mims, Brandon Johnson and Lil'Jordan Humphrey are available to handle the Broncos' Week 18 wideout duties.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Cleared to play in season finale

    Sutton (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Sutton's lack of injury designation suggests he has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. He missed the Week 17 win over the Chargers and was limited in practice Wednesday but upgraded to full participation Thursday and Friday. Sutton caught 10 touchdown passes from Russell Wilson in 15 games prior to getting injured, but he'll have Jarrett Stidham as his quarterback for the season finale with Wilson benched.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Practices fully Thursday

    Sutton (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday. Sutton sat out the Broncos' Week 17 win over the Chargers after suffering a concussion in a Week 16 loss to New England, but he appears to be working toward a return to action for this Sunday's season finale in Las Vegas. After practicing in limited fashion Wednesday, Sutton demonstrated progress by taking every rep Thursday, indicating that he's been cleared for contact. Before getting the green light to play Sunday, Sutton will still need to get clearance from an independent neurologist prior to being removed from the five-step concussion protocol, something that could happen Friday or Saturday.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Returns to limited practice

    Sutton (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Sutton didn't practice at all last week before being ruled out ahead of Broncos' Week 17 win over the Chargers. The wideout's return to a limited session Wednesday has him trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Raiders, but with Denver eliminated from playoff contention, the team has little incentive to play Sutton this weekend if there's any doubt about his status as game day approaches.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Ruled out for Week 17

    Coach Sean Payton said Friday that Sutton (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Sutton departed in the first half of this past Sunday's loss to the Patriots and eventually was diagnosed with a concussion. He proceeded to miss practice both Wednesday and Thursday before the Broncos made a decision on his availability for Week 17. With Sutton sitting out Sunday, the Broncos' receiving corps should be paced by Jerry Jeudy, with Brandon Johnson, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and potentially Marvin Mims (hamstring) mixing in behind him.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Misses another practice

    Sutton (concussion) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Sutton thus has one more chance to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Chargers. If he's unable to gain clearance to play this weekend, Jerry Jeudy, Marvin Mims (hamstring), Brandon Johnson and Lil'Jordan Humphrey would profile as quarterback Jarrett Stidham's top targets at receiver in Week 17.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Not able to practice

    Sutton (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Ryan McFadden of The Denver Post reports. Sutton's absence was to be expected less than 72 hours after he suffered a concussion in the first half of Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots. If he clears the five-step concussion protocol ahead of this weekend's game against the Chargers, Sutton will be on the receiving end of passes from Jarrett Stidham rather than Russell Wilson, who has been moved to the bench for Denver's final two games of the season.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Enters concussion protocol

    Head coach Sean Payton confirmed after Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots that Sutton is in concussion protocol, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Sutton was forced out early in the first half and didn't return, finishing the contest with zero catches on one target over just nine snaps. The wideout will now have six days to potentially clear the five-step protocol ahead of the Broncos' Week 17 game Dec. 31 versus the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Ruled out for rest of game

    Sutton (head) will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Sutton was evaluated for a head injury in the first half of Sunday's contest, and it has been determined that his night has come to an early end. It remains to be seen if he will miss any further time, but Sutton will have to clear the league's concussion protocol before taking the field again.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Undergoing concussion check

    Sutton is being evaluated for a possible head injury, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. No further details were immediately available, but it remains to be seen if Sutton will return to Sunday's contest. His status will be updated again when more details are available.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Records 71 yards

    Sutton recorded five receptions on six targets for 71 yards in Saturday's 42-17 loss to the Lions. Sutton has been productive primarily by reaching the end zone this season. While he failed to do so Saturday, he led the team in receptions and tallied four catches that went for double-digit gains. Sutton's performance marked the fourth time he's topped 70 yards this season but for only the second time in six games since Denver's Week 9 bye.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: WRs to Start

    Sutton got back in the end zone in Week 13 at Houston after failing to score a touchdown in Week 12 against Cleveland, and he's now scored a touchdown in six of his past seven games, with nine touchdowns on the year. He should have the chance to score again in Week 14 at the Chargers, who are No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. Russell Wilson should continue to lean on Sutton in this matchup, and he has top-15 upside in the majority of leagues.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Scores ninth touchdown

    Sutton recorded two receptions on seven targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Texans. Sutton led the Broncos in targets but spent much of the game squandering his opportunity. That changed late in the third quarter when he made an acrobatic 45-yard touchdown grab, just reaching the front pylon as he was touched down. Sutton has now found the end zone nine times on the campaign -- including six times in his last seven games -- even though he's topped 75 receiving yards only three times this season.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Three grabs in Sunday's win

    Sutton caught three of six targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 29-12 win over the Browns. Russell Wilson attempted only 22 passes on the day as the Broncos led wire to wire, but Sutton still paced the team in receiving yards and nearly extended his touchdown streak to six games with a 31-yard gain on the opening drive that saw him pushed out of bounds at the Cleveland three-yard line. Samaje Perine scored instead on the next play. While Sutton's TD streak is over, he remains the team's top receiving option with a 48-560-8 line on 68 targets through 11 contests heading into a Week 13 clash with the Texans.

  • Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Catches game-winning TD

    Sutton hauled in four of his five targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-20 victory over the Vikings. Sutton made the play of the game when he leaped over his defender after running a corner route to grab a lob from Russell Wilson for the game-winning score. The QB/WR duo have already connected in the red zone a whopping eight times this season, resulting in all eight of Sutton's touchdowns through 10 games. The 28-year-old has still yet to eclipse the century mark in receiving yards in any game this year, which might suggest that the wideout's current high ranking in fantasy is being inflated by an unsustainable touchdown rate. That caveat aside, Sutton should continue to be deployed confidently in fantasy lineups, even with a tough matchup against the Browns looming next Sunday.
