NFL.com's James Palmer reports that the number three wide receiver job for the Broncos appears to belong to rookie Courtland Sutton. Denver's veteran cornerbacks told Palmer, "He is the third receiver. It's not even a competition. Everyone on this team knows it."
This is to be expected after the Broncos spent a second-round draft selection on Sutton this spring, but it is good to see him showing out enough early in camp to receive such praise from members of the defense. While Denver has implied that they would like to run the ball this season, they have the personnel for a surprisingly good spread attack. Sutton may have more value than fantasy owners think, being drafted outside of the top 75 wideouts in redraft leagues.
