DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. New England Patriots
Courtland Sutton saw another red zone target in Week 15, but unfortunately he couldn't reel it in this time. He did rack up 71 yards on six targets and five catches as he continued to dominate the downfield receiver passing role for the Broncos and Russell Wilson. Sutton is prone to the occasional dud playing in a run-first offense that has struggled at points this season, but he has finished as a viable fantasy starter more of than not in 2023 due to his red zone involvement and ability to score touchdowns. Now the Broncos host the lowly Patriots as home favorites in Week 16. Sutton is the clear top option in the Denver passing attack and warrants consideration as a flex play for the fantasy playoffs.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 @ Detroit Lions
Courtland Sutton has been one of the most reliable sources of touchdowns at the receiver position this year. He caught his 10th touchdown in Week 14, and managed to accumulate 62 yards on only four targets and three catches. Sutton will never see the target volume of the elite receivers, but he has earned the eighth-most red zone targets in the NFL and has converted his scoring opportunities at a very high rate. Now Sutton gets to face off with a Detroit secondary that has given up plenty of production to opposing passing games and is trending in the wrong direction this late in the season. Fire Sutton up as a solid WR3 option for the fantasy playoffs.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Los Angeles Chargers
Courtland Sutton only caught two balls in Week 13, but he made them count by racking up 77 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown bomb from Russell Wilson. The touchdown was Sutton's ninth of the season, which ranks third in the NFL amongst receivers. Sutton is not guaranteed huge volume in a Denver offense that has shifted to being firmly run-first, but he has consistently produced touchdowns and is earning a ton of targets in the red zone. Sutton should be viewed as an upside WR3 in fantasy terms, and he gets a great matchup against a Chargers defense that has struggled to contain opposing passing games all year. He makes for a solid start as we close out the fantasy regular season.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Houston Texans
Courtland Sutton is coming off a disappointing performance in Week 12 when he caught three of six targets for 61 scoreless yards. The Broncos' passing offense as a whole didn't do much against a stout Cleveland defense, but they get a much better matchup this week taking on a Houston defense that is soft against the pass. Sutton is somewhat touchdown-dependent in the Denver offense as Week 12 demonstrated, but he is maintaining a 23% target share from Russell Wilson and his 15 red zone targets rank sixth amongst all wide receivers. Sutton can be inserted back into lineups as a flex option this week and should have a good chance at finding the end zone yet again.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Cleveland Browns
Courtland Sutton saw limited volume in Week 11 with only four catches on five targets, but he found the end zone yet again to haul in his eighth receiving touchdown on the season to save his day. Sutton's eight receiving touchdowns rank second in the NFL behind only Tyreek Hill. Sutton and the Broncos have the difficult task of dealing with the Browns' elite defense this week, but Cleveland notably falls closer to league average in terms of suppressing production to opposing wideouts. The Broncos will likely have to lean on the passing game this week to have a chance, which should benefit Sutton in terms of seeing some additional targets. Sutton remains a solid flex play as someone who will never receive huge volume but is a really good bet to score a touchdown on a weekly basis.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Minnesota Vikings
Courtland Sutton has not cleared 100 yards receiving in any game this season, but he has remained fantasy relevant because of his robust red zone production. Sutton caught his seventh touchdown in Week 10 as part of a 8-53-1 line, and this one was on an excellent toe-tapping catch in the end zone. So long as Sutton remains Russell Wilson's primary red zone option, he will remain in the flex conversation for fantasy. This week the Broncos take on a Vikings defense that is more vulnerable to the pass than the run, which suggests Sutton could find success again and will have a reasonable chance to extend his touchdown streak to five games. The Broncos' offense isn't always pretty, but Sutton's prominent role makes him worthy of starting as a flex option.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Buffalo Bills
Courtland Sutton's consistent red zone presence has been a pleasant surprise this season, but he has still had volatile production being part of an offense that is average on a good day. Even coming off a down performance in Week 8 when Sutton only caught two balls, he still found the endzone on one of them to at least show up in the box score. Coming out of the bye, Sutton will travel to Buffalo to take on a Bills defense that has been average in terms of allowing fantasy points to opposing wideouts on the season. Sutton is a weekly touchdown threat with six on the season, and that does enough to get him into the flex conversation.
