Scouting report

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Courtland Sutton turned in another strong fantasy performance in Week 7 when he caught all six targets for 76 yards and was once again on the receiving end of Russell Wilson's only touchdown. Sutton has a 22% target share on the season, which is solid but not spectacular. Where he has thrived is in the red zone, where his nine targets and five touchdowns rank him in the top-10 amongst all wideouts. A difficult matchup against a strong Chiefs defense lowers the ceiling and floor for all Denver skill players in this game, but Sutton is clearly the best bet for fantasy production on the Broncos and deserves flex consideration due to his role and projected game script.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Green Bay Packers
Courtland Sutton remains a lonely bright spot in the Denver offense as he caught Russell Wilson's only touchdown in Week 6 and logged a 4-46-1 line on six targets. Sutton is playing nearly every snap for the Broncos and has held off the younger Jerry Jeudy and Marvin Mims to remain Wilson's top target through six games. Sutton's eight red zone targets rank seventh amongst WRs, and his four receiving scores place him in the top-five at his position. So long as Wilson continues to look Sutton's way in the red zone, he will be a viable flex play in fantasy. The Packers are a middling matchup for opposing wideouts, placing Sutton in the WR3 tier for Week 7.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Kansas City Chiefs
Courtland Sutton's production fell off a cliff in Week 5 when he only managed 13 yards on one catch while only seeing three targets. Sutton's 21% target share through five games is solid, but the overall passing offense has not been productive enough to sustain consistent WR2 stats for any pass catcher on the Denver roster. Jerry Jeudy saw seven targets in Week 5, and given the state of the Broncos' offense there will not be enough production to go around for both guys on a weekly basis. Now the Broncos will take on the Chiefs at Arrowhead. While Kansas City can score and provoke more passing out of Denver, the Chiefs' defense has been tough on opposing passing games. Sutton is a flex at best in Week 6.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. New York Jets
Courtland Sutton only caught three balls on five targets in Week 4, but he salvaged his fantasy performance by finding the endzone on one of his catches. Sutton's underlying usage metrics remain strong. He had a 100% route participation rate in Week 4 despite Jerry Jeudy trending towards full health and rookie Marvin Mims displaying great efficiency. Sutton's hot start to the season has seemingly solidified his prominent role in the Denver passing game, but he gets a difficult matchup at home this week when the Broncos welcome Sauce Gardner and the Jets to town. Jeudy's continued healing and Mims' potential ascension to more playing time could threaten Sutton's target share down the line, but for now he remains a potential flex play even in an unideal matchup against the Jets.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Chicago Bears
With Jerry Jeudy working his way back from a hamstring injury, Courtland Sutton has assumed the role of Russell Wilson's top target through three weeks. Sutton saw a season-high 11 targets in Week 3 with the Broncos playing catch-up against Miami, and he managed to record 91 yards and a touchdown on that usage. Sutton has seen five red zone targets through three games, which has been a big boost to his fantasy value. Jeudy is playing more each week, which could threaten Sutton's target share, but rookie Marvin Mims is Denver's third option in the passing game and he is still being used sparingly despite being highly efficient. As long as Sutton continues to record a roughly 90% route participation rate, there should be enough opportunity available for both Sutton and Jeudy to be flex plays. A tissue-soft matchup against the Bears this week certainly doesn't hurt Sutton's cause as a possible starter.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Miami Dolphins
Courtland Sutton maintained his prominent role in the Denver passing game in Week 2 when he saw seven targets and caught five of them for 66 yards. Sutton has 12 targets, nine catches, and a touchdown through two weeks, but it should be noted that Jerry Jeudy missed Week 1 entirely and only played 69% of the snaps in Week 2 as he works his way back from a hamstring issue suffered in training camp. Jeudy's return to full health means he is a threat to infringe on Sutton's target share, and there just is not much wiggle room for Sutton to remain a legitimate fantasy option in the current state of the Denver offense. We will have to see if Jeudy is back to a full-time player this week, but for now Sutton is merely a low-end flex play for Week 3 against Miami.

DEN WR Courtland Sutton - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Washington Commanders
Courtland Sutton only managed four catches for 32 yards on five targets in Week 1, but one of his catches went for a five-yard touchdown to salvage his fantasy day. The Broncos offense looked good for a half last Sunday, but it fell off a cliff after halftime and Russell Wilson reverted to his 2022 form to close the game out. Sutton's 94% route participation and 87% snap share from Week 1 are positive signs, but it is a little concerning that he was only able to earn five targets in a game Jerry Jeudy missed due to injury. With such limited volume, Sutton's fantasy outlook will be touchdown-dependent and that is a tough proposition with the way the Broncos have looked on offense since Russell Wilson's arrival. It looks like Jeudy may be back in a limited fashion this week, a development that only dampens Sutton's fantasy outlook further. Sutton can be considered as a low-end flex play until Jeudy is back to full health, but he is not an overly exciting starting option this week against Washington.
