Broncos Beat: It's Courtland Sutton time

Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 7:38pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

John Elway said the Broncos “were not hell bent" on trading Demaryius Thomas, but the bottom line is they simply want Courtland Sutton to play more. And sitting at 3-5 at the season’s halfway point, Elway said the time is now.

Sutton leads the Broncos wide receivers with a 19.1 yards-per-catch average and has already proven himself to be a difficult matchup for opposing defensive backs, especially in contested-pass situations. Recently Broncos coach Vance Joseph summed up the reason to throw the ball Sutton’s way with “it’s either a big play down the field or a penalty on the guy who’s covering him."

Fantasy Impact:

While all the hype is obviously around Sutton, and with good reason, he should get a huge boost in fantasy value with the departure of Thomas, but, guys like Hamilton and Patrick also have a chance to see increased playing time.

Scouting Report

Week 11 at Los Angeles Chargers

He has good size at 6-foot-4 and seven of his 20 grabs during his rookie season has gone for at least 20 yards. Sutton faces a suspect Chargers secondary, making him a WR3/flex play.
