Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton said he has spent the offseason working with retired WR Anquan Boldin to improve his route-running and with trainer Tony Villani to boost his speed.
Fantasy Spin: It sounds like Sutton is putting in the work, and while he was a bit of a disappointment after Emmanuel Sanders was injured last season, he still has a chance to emerge as Denver's top receiver. He's a WR4 with upside entering 2019.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton traveled to Florida to train with Tony Villani of XPE Sports ahead of the team's offseason program, and he's now working with former NFL wideout Anquan Boldin on his route-running techniques. Sutton focused on being more explosive with the ball in his hands while working with Villani. The 23-year-old will be leaned on more heavily heading into his second year, especially if Emmanuel Sanders is slow to recover from his Achilles injury. He'll be a popular target in 2019 drafts after catching 42 passes for 704 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season with Case Keenum throwing him passes.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton is aiming to improve in the red zone heading into his second NFL season. Last year, 176 players had more than Sutton's two red-zone catches (both touchdowns) and 80 wideouts had more than his eight targets inside the 20. Personally in the red zone, I think Im one of the biggest threats that (defensive backs) go against, Sutton said. Every DB that I played against or will play against will probably say the same thing. They might not show it, but they know. At 6-foot-4, 216 pounds, the second-year wideout will be looking to break out with quarterback Joe Flacco now under center.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is one of the players QB Joe Flacco said he is 'excited' to work with in 2019.
Fantasy Spin: A lot was expected out of Sutton after Emmanuel Sanders went down late last season, but he didn't see a jump in production. He will now have Joe Flacco throwing him the ball, which doesn't exactly move the needle either. Sutton enters 2019 in the WR3/WR4 range.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught one of his three targets for 25 yards in a 23-9 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Sutton had a solid rookie campaign, but he did struggle a bit down the stretch as the No. 1 option after Emmanuel Sanders suffered an injury. Still, his long-term upside remains promising, and Sutton can be a WR4 with upside in 2019.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton reeled in six of 10 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the club's Week 16 loss Monday, Dec. 24, against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Spin: Now this is what fantasy owners were anticipating on a weekly basis when Emmanuel Sanders went down for the year, as Sutton cashed in on a weak Oakland pass defense. The rookie wide-out has outstanding potential and in the meantime, he'll continue to serve as a WR2 option in Week 17.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Sutton has been targeted at least six times in three of the last four games but has also been held to under 50 yards in three of those games. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (quadriceps) practiced on a limited basis on Friday, Dec. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Check back Saturday for Sutton's official injury report designation. He is the No. 1 receiver for Denver against a very giving Oakland defense, so he could surprise on Monday night for fantasy owners.
Denver Broncos CB Brendan Langley (concussion), NT Domata Peko (not injury related), LB Shane Ray (illness) and OT Jared Veldheer (illness) did not practice Friday, Dec. 21. LB Shaquil Barrett (hip), TE Matt LaCosse (ankle), LB Brandon M. Marshall (knee), WR Courtland Sutton (quadriceps) and CB Isaac Yiadom (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis.
