2019 RTSports Outlook

Sutton had an erratic rookie season. He made some big plays and had some big games, but also disappeared in others. He wasn't too consistent but erratic quarterback play didn't help matters for Sutton. A new quarterback and offense should be a positive for Sutton this year. Sutton made plenty of big plays last year, though, averaging 16.8 yards per reception. He showed his explosiveness. He will start from day one this year and could emerge as the go-to target in this offense. Sutton has a great combination of size and speed. He does a good job of making the catch above the defenders. He is a tall, strong target. He lacks a little polish, though, and doesn't always play to his size.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Sutton should be a little more consistent than last year but likely will be a little boom or bust. He should be considered a top No. 3 for fantasy teams. He can get around 65 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or eight touchdowns. His stock is on the rise.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton showed a great deal of promise in 2018, ranking fourth among NFL rookies with 704 receiving yards, and adding four touchdowns for good measure. Sutton also led all rookies, and ranked 19th among all NFL players, in receptions of 20 or more yards. That should come into play with Joe Flacco now at the helm in Denver, as Flacco has averaged just over 41 such completions per season throughout his 11-year career. We should also note the slight uptick in Sutton's targets once Emmanuel Sanders went down for the season in Denver's 12th game last year. Sutton averaged just under five targets per game through 12 weeks, but that number jumped up to 6.25 in his final four games. Sanders is expected to be in the fold from the get-go despite injuring his Achilles in the latter stages of the 2018 season, so it will be interesting to see who Flacco favors early on. One thing that's important to take into account is that it very well might be the veteran Sanders through a couple of games, but Sutton could reasonably be expected to overtake him as Flacco's preferred target as the schedule presses on. Sutton is much younger, and is not on the mend from a catastrophic injury. After a 42-catch, 704-yard 2018 season, Sutton offers a ton of upside at a mid-round draft price. His quarterback situation could be better, but if things break the right way, Sutton should draw weekly flex consideration.

Player Notes

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton saw a decrease in production in Week 2 relative to his outstanding Week 1 performance. The switch flipped, and teammate Emmanuel Sanders was the go-to target for quarterback Joe Flacco against a stout Chicago Bears Defense. Sutton's final stat-line on the afternoon was four catches for 40 yards. The upside was that Sutton managed to see volume while his teammate was having a phenomenal game and he was playing one of the league's best defenses. The 2nd-year pass catcher will be a stretch flex play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3, as their secondary has looked solid to kick off the 2019 season.

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught four passes for 40 yards on Sunday, Sept. 15, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Spin: Sutton went off for 120 yards receiving in Week 1, but a tough Bears secondary limited him to four receptions in the home opener. Still, Sutton is a solid player that should be owned in all formats and can be deployed in appealing matchups.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton had a stellar game to kick off his sophomore campaign against the Oakland Raiders, rewarding any owners that gave him a shot in their Week 1 lineup. The former SMU Mustang hauled in seven of the eight balls thrown his way, both team highs, for 120 yards, also a team-high. Sutton proved to be a steady target for quarterback Joe Flacco, consistently getting chunk yardage. There is concern regarding the shaky overall team performance by the Broncos offense, making Sutton a low-end flex play in Week 2.

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton posted seven catches for 120 yards on eight targets in the Week 1 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Spin: Sutton was impressive, looking like the No. 1 receiver in this offense. Emmanuel Sanders hasn't passed that torch just yet, but don't be surprised if Sutton ends up as the top option in this offense by season's end. The Broncos are home in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears.

From TheHuddle

Sep 1 5:40pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton starts off his sophomore campaign in a matchup against an unproven secondary hosted by the Oakland Raiders. Sutton enters 2019 with hopes of improving on a sub-par statistical year in 2018 but showed signs of being able to become a solid wide receiver for the Broncos. The Southern Methodist product is currently listed behind veteran teammate Emmanuel Sanders on the depth chart in an offense that has a new look with a new quarterback, head coach, and offensive coordinator. Hence, it is unsure what the usage for Sutton will look like in week one, and most owners could find safer options and keep Sutton on their bench in week one.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton continues to look comfortable in the Denver Broncos offense, hauling in a 21-yard third-down catch from his new quarterback, Joe Flacco. Sutton has benefited from having an experienced quarterback at the helm of the offense, as he continues to develop in Denver. With teammate Emmanuel Sanders looking healthy in his return last night, Sutton's journey to becoming the undoubted WR1 became slightly more difficult, but he could catapult himself to massive fantasy value with a good season in 2019.

Aug 20 1:13am ET

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton secured both of his targets for 28 yards in a 24-15 preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Spin: With a golden opportunity to emerge as the go-to weapon for Joe Flacco this season, Sutton has legitimate WR2 upside. It remains to be seen if he can take advantage of that opportunity, but it is worth finding out if you can land him as a WR4.

From TheHuddle

Aug 18 3:40pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton sees an opening for the number one receiver spot on the roster entering his sophomore season. The SMU product has a new-look offense, with quarterback Joe Flacco at the helm, and colleague Emmanuel Sanders aging and coming off an injury in 2018. Sutton looks to take the next step in his career, and he has looked the part with an impressive preseason.

Jul 9 3:43pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton has a 'great chance' to meet his own expectations and become the team's No. 1 receiver based on his offseason work with Joe Flacco, according to Mike Klis of 'I'm excited going into this season knowing that I am going to get to be the No. 1 and I'll get all of the looks and all of the pressure,'' Sutton said.

Fantasy Spin: Sutton does have a grand opportunity before him, as Emmanuel Sanders is unlikely to return to form until perhaps late in 2018 due to his Achilles injury. The second-year wideout's ability to high-point the ball and use his size downfield makes him a good fit for Flacco and his strong arm. It's just a matter of Sutton doing things such as improving his ability to gain yards after the catch this offseason. He stands a great chance of becoming a top-20 fantasy receiver if he stays healthy.

From TheHuddle

Jun 28 2:43am ET

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton should be better in the red zone this season due to QB Joe Flacco's willingness to throw 50/50 balls, in the opinion of the Denver Post's Ryan O'Halloran, who says the Broncos should 'prioritize' using Sutton's size more in the red zone.

Fantasy Spin: Sutton had a nice rookie campaign, posting a 42-704-4 line, but he definitely has the size (6-foot-3, 218 pounds) to do more damage in the red zone, and there's little doubt that Flacco is among the more willing passers out there when it comes to letting his receivers go up and make a play. Sutton remains a WR4 for the time being, but his upside is tempting.

From TheHuddle

May 24 10:03pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

May 24 1:00pm ET

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.
