DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Pittsburgh Steelers
After missing the opener with a shoulder injury, Courtland Sutton hopes to be ready for Sunday’s contest in Pittsburgh. While rookie Jerry Jeudy and TE Noah Fant were the top pass catchers last Monday in the loss to Tennessee, Sutton is the No. 1 option for Drew Lock and will definitely be an asset to the aerial attack. As long as he’s cleared to play, be sure to start Sutton.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 – Courtland Sutton vs. Tennessee Titans
After playing together for the final month of the ’19 season, Courtland Sutton and QB Drew Lock plan to have a full year together to spark the offense. Lined up opposite of rookie Jerry Jeudy, Sutton will be the Broncos No. 1 WR. He’s coming off a 72- reception, 1,112-yard season and should eclipse the 1,000-yard plateau again in ’20. Expect Lock to look for his WR often, which means good things for Sutton in the Monday night home opener. He's has been diagnosed with a sprained right AC joint and is day to day, so be sure to monitor his progress.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
In his second professional season, Courtland Sutton led the Broncos with 72 receptions for 1,100 yards and six TDs. He became the 20th WR in the past 10 years to eclipse 1,100 yards in one of his first two professional seasons. After Emmanuel Sanders was traded in the middle of last year, Sutton took over as the Broncos No. 1 WR and will be Drew Lock’s top option in ’20, with rookies Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler expected to be the other starters. With Lock under center for the final five contests, Sutton averaged slightly over four grabs for 56 yards and scored twice.

Fantasy Downside
While the passing game will feature Sutton, the speed presence of Jeudy and Hamler and RBs Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay will all be utilized by Lock. Jeudy, the first-round pick, is a better prospect coming out of college than Sutton was and could take over the top target as the season progresses. Once Sanders was moved, Sutton had very little competition for targets, something that will absolutely change this year. Although he received over 120 looks last year, he was over the century mark only twice and failed to find the end zone during the final four contests.

Bottom Line
Sutton has good height at 6’4” and long arms, which helps him both be able to leap over and outstretch smaller DBs. Despite only two years in the league, the 24-year-old is the Broncos veteran WR heading into the regular season. With a new OC in Pat Shurmur, look for the Denver offense to be more exciting, resulting in another 1,000-yard year for Sutton. We have him as a top-30 WR heading into the regular season.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Oakland Raiders
Last Sunday in the win over the Lions, Drew Lock threw for just 192 yards. On a team-leading 10 targets Courtland Sutton snagged five balls but for only 41 yards, as fellow WRs DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick posted more yardage. It was the second straight week he received 10 looks, however, he hasn’t been in the end zone in three straight contests. In the opening week loss at Oakland Sutton torched the Raiders for 120 yards on seven grabs and is a WR2 play in the rematch at home.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Detroit Lions
In the snowy loss to the Chiefs last week Courland Sutton still posted a decent fantasy outing, leading the team with 79 yards on four grabs. Even though the 10 targets he received were a season-high, in the past four outings he is averaging only 54 yards and has been over the century mark just twice this season. Detroit has the second-worst defense versus the pass, so expect Drew Lock to have a good game, which makes Courtland Sutton a WR2 start.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Kansas City Chiefs
Even though Drew Lock tossed for over 300 yards and three scores in the win over Houston last week, Courtland Sutton finished with just 34 yards on five grabs. Sutton has been held to less than 35 yards in two of the last three contests but is still a huge part of the Broncos passing game, averaging over 73 yards per outing. Versus Kansas City in October, he led the team with 87 yards on six catches and remains a WR2 option.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Houston Texans
In Drew Lock’s first game last Sunday Courtland Sutton helped his new QB out with a diving 33-yard TD in the first quarter. The WR caught another score from the rookie in the opening stanza and drew a pass interference penalty late to set up the game-winning field goal. Sutton will likely continue to be Lock’s favorite target, but the Broncos have a tough road game at Houston, making him a WR2 start.
