Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton was barely heard from yet again in the 22-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in Week 13. Sutton finished the game with two receptions on six targets for a measly 15 yards. Really the only good news in this one was the fact that his six targets were tied for second-most on the team with Jerry Jeudy. Since Jeudy returned from a high ankle sprain in Week 8, Sutton has nine catches for 110 yards and no touchdowns on 18 targets in five games. That says it all right there. The Broncos prefer not to throw the ball too much if they don't have to, and when they do, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater usually spreads it around to a bunch of different weapons. The 26-year-old has found his way to the bench is most fantasy leagues.
We wouldn't blame any fantasy managers that have Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton planted firmly on their bench for the Week 13 divisional clash against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. Sutton has proven to be fully recovered from an ACL tear in his knee last year, but that hasn't exactly translated into much on-field success, especially since Jerry Jeudy returned from Injured Reserve four weeks ago. Since Week 8, Sutton has seen just 12 targets, catching seven of them for 95 scoreless yards. In this crowded offense, the 26-year-old hasn't seen more than five targets or scored since Week 6. There should be a few more targets with running back Melvin Gordon (hip, shoulder) unlikely to play in a game where the Broncos could need to air it out, but Sutton has become a hard-to-trust WR4/flex.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton came into a Week 12 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers with only five catches on nine targets for 78 scoreless yards in three games since Jerry Jeudy returned from a high ankle sprain. Things didn't get any better Sunday in the 28-13 win over the Bolts, as Sutton caught just two of his three targets for 17 yards on the day. No Broncos player saw more than four targets with the team leading the entire day and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater attempting just 18 total passes after missing the whole second quarter with a shin injury. Denver's offense should have to air it out more often in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Sutton's 12 targets in the last four games is extremely concerning from a fantasy standpoint. He'll be more of a WR4/flex next week.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton signed a four-year contract extension worth $60.8 million during the bye week. The 26-year-old has proven to be an excellent deep threat on the outside and has bounced back from his ACL tear in 2020, but he has taken a back seat in the offense ever since Jerry Jeudy returned from his high ankle sprain in Week 8. In three games with Jeudy back in the picture, Sutton has only five receptions for 78 yards on nine targets. Nine targets over a three-game span just isn't going to cut it. Sutton can still win with physicality down the field, but he'll have a tough matchup against a Los Angeles Chargers defense that is allowing the fifth-fewest receiving yards this season. Perhaps the Broncos will manufacture more ways to get Sutton the ball coming off their bye, but he'll be a touchdown-dependent WR3/flex, at best, in Week 12.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has signed a four-year contract extension worth $60.8 million, with $34.9 million in guaranteed money. Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, and K.J. Hamler, will headline the Denver receiving core for years to come, which is an extremely appealing group of pass-catchers for a quarterback to throw to. Sutton tore his ACL in the 2020 season after putting up over 1,100 receiving yards in the 2019 campaign and has looked extremely impressive at times this year just one year removed from a significant injury. The 26-year-old has shown he can produce as an alpha wide receiver when given the opportunity and should be able to continue doing that moving forward. He has seen his target share decrease quite drastically over the past four games, as he has been thrown to just 14 times. Still, the investment the Broncos have made in him likely means they envision a significant role for him moving forward. He can be valued at the WR2/WR3 borderline for the remainder of the season.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton continued his three-week fall that has coincided with the return of Jerry Jeudy in the 30-13 Week 10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Sutton finished the day with only two catches on three targets for 29 yards. His number of targets tied backup tight end Albert Okwuegbunam. Since Jeudy returned in Week 8, Sutton has managed just five receptions on nine targets for 78 scoreless yards. That's a problem. The Broncos could manufacture more ways to get him the ball during their bye in Week 11, but this recent trend for Sutton makes him one to bench if you have more reliable options in Week 12. Based on his recent output, Sutton will be a shaky WR4/flex once he returns from his bye week.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has a combined six targets (three catches, 49 yards) in the two games since Jerry Jeudy returned from a high ankle sprain. That's not to say that Sutton and Jeudy can't co-exist in this offense, but that will be difficult on a weekly basis in this low-volume passing attack, especially with tight end Noah Fant returning from the COVID-19 list in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Sutton and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater have formed a nice downfield connection in 2021, but Sutton has gone from being an upside WR2 to being a boom/bust WR3/flex now that Jeudy is back in the mix. The good news: Sutton will be facing an Eagles defense on Sunday that has allowed the fourth-most receptions (231) this year.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has three catches for 49 yards on six targets in the last two weeks combined since Jerry Jeudy returned from his high ankle sprain. Sutton caught just one of his two targets for a season-low nine yards in the 30-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9, and he also added a reception for a successful two-point conversion. It's disappointing that he wasn't able to do more on a day the Broncos offense scored a season-high 30 points. And his six targets in the last two games with Jeudy back is also extremely concerning for his fantasy upside the rest of the way. No. 1 tight end Noah Fant didn't even play on Sunday due to COVID-19. In this low-volume passing attack with Jeudy now back in the fold, Sutton has become more of a volatile WR3.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton did not have a good game in Jerry Jeudy's return from a high ankle sprain in the Week 8 win over the Washington Football Team, catching two of his four targets for only 40 yards. However, no Broncos player had more than four targets with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater spreading the ball around. Sutton is likely to be matched up with Dallas Cowboys star cornerback Trevon Diggs in Week 9, but tight end Noah Fant is likely to be out with COVID-19 and the Broncos figure to be passing often to keep up with Dallas' high-scoring offense. It might be a stretch to hope that Sutton will see double-digit targets with Jeudy now back, but with Fant likely out, there's a good chance Sutton will bounce back on Sunday as more of a low-end WR2 this week. The Cowboys have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game in 2021 to WRs.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton was a big disappointment in the 17-10 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 8, catching two of his four targets for 40 yards on Sunday. Sutton was second on the team in receiving yards as they snapped their four-game losing streak, and he was also tied for a team-high with his four targets, but he couldn't do a whole lot with it. The 26-year-old is fully healthy after tearing his ACL in 2020 and has two 100-yard games with two touchdowns on the season, but Denver's offense is proving to be pretty unspectacular more often than not. He'll also have to deal with Jerry Jeudy stealing targets from him moving forward. There is plenty of big-play ability here, but Sutton's big WR2 games have been impossible to predict.
Can Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton remain on the WR2 map in Week 8 against the Washington Football Team with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) set to return from Injured Reserve? In the last three weeks, Sutton ranks fourth in the NFL in targets (30), catches (20) and yards (282), while he's eighth with two TDs. Sutton only had one catch for 14 yards in the season opener with Jeudy also on the field, but the two could both thrive against a Washington defense that is allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing pass-catchers this year. And with Jeudy expected to spend most of his time in the slot, it could open up more space for Sutton on the outside. The 26-year-old is showing his physicality and that he's 100 percent recovered from an ACL tear in 2020. Sutton will inevitably lose some targets with Jeudy returning, but he'll still have WR2 upside in the matchup against Washington.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton was tied with Tim Patrick for third on the team with five targets in the 17-14 Thursday night loss to the Cleveland Browns, but he caught all five of his targets for a team-high 68 yards. The Broncos offense only had two first downs in the first half and just didn't have much urgency throughout the game on the road on a short week. The good news is that the 26-year-old looks fully healthy after tearing his ACL last year. The impending return of Jerry Jeudy (ankle) in Week 8 is a bit concerning for Sutton's overall target share, but he should continue to have WR2 upside, especially against a Washington Football Team defense next Sunday that hasn't really been able to slow anyone down this year.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton remains one of the bright spots on this Denver offense heading into a Thursday night matchup with the Cleveland Browns. He drew a team-high 14 targets in the Week 6 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and turned them into eight catches for 94 yards and a touchdown. Per Pro Football Focus, Sutton has the most targets (51) among receivers without a drop through the first six weeks. He remains the Broncos top target and has 471 receiving yards and two touchdowns heading into Week 7. Sutton could keep the TD streak alive against a Browns defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the receiver position this year. Lock him into your starting lineups as a strong WR2 option.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton caught eight of a team-high 14 targets for 94 yards and his second touchdown in as many weeks in the 34-24 Week 6 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Sutton continues to be Denver's top target with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) on Injured Reserve, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is not afraid to target him deep down the field. Most of the 26-year-old's production against Las Vegas came late in the game with the contest already well in hand for the Raiders, but it still counts nonetheless. Sutton has had double-digit targets the last two weeks and three times this season. The return of Jeudy in the near future will mean fewer targets, but Sutton could also become more efficient with his looks. He'll remain a WR2 with upside heading into Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton woke up in the Week 5 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, catching seven of his 11 targets for 120 yards and his first touchdown of the season. Aside from his two 100-yard games, though, Sutton has been pretty quiet despite ranking second behind Davante Adams with 644 air yards in 2021. The 26-year-old was also helped by the fact that Denver was forced to throw while being down multiple scores in the second half last Sunday. The targets will be there for Denver's top option in the passing game, but Sutton will also be facing a Las Vegas Raiders defense in Week 6 that has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game (9.0) to opposing pass-catchers in the last three weeks. He'll be a midrange WR2 for fantasy managers against the division rivals.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton gave his fantasy managers a scare on Friday when he rolled his ankle in practice, making him questionable to play in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sutton ended up playing and dominating, catching seven of his team-high 11 targets for 120 yards and his first touchdown of the season. The 26-year-old had a 100-yard game in Week 2, but before Sunday, he had been quiet otherwise. It was nice to see him break out again in a game in which Denver had to throw the ball often while trailing all day. And with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) still out, Sutton is the clear top target for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Denver's offense isn't as bad as it was in 2020, but they are in better hands with Bridgewater under center. Sutton will continue to have WR2 upside in Week 6.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers. This should be the easiest pass defense that the Broncos have faced this season, putting Sutton in decent shape to post some strong numbers. He has 18 catches for 257 yards but has yet to find the endzone this season. With Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) starting, there's some nice upside here for Sutton, who can be deployed as a WR3 play.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (ankle) remains a true game-time decision on Sunday afternoon. He was a late addition to the injury report this weekend, drawing a questionable designation. Through four games this year, the 24-year-old has caught 18 passes for 257 yards and zero touchdowns. However, 159 of those yards came in one game against the Jaguars back in Week 2. He has been a fairly unsteady option in fantasy football, leaving him in the WR3 category against the Steelers on Sunday if he's even able to suit up. The presence of Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) should help his stock, though.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (ankle) rolled his ankle in practice on Friday and will now be questionable for Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after practicing on a limited basis. Outside of a big performance in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Sutton has done very little for fantasy managers, and now he has an injury to boot. The Steelers defense has been generous to opposing pass-catchers this year, allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to the position through four weeks. However, Sutton has become a shaky WR3/flex now that he's questionable. If he's inactive on Sunday, both Tim Patrick and tight end Noah Fant would be the top two targets for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (concussion), who is expected to play. Diontae Spencer would likely serve as the No. 2 receiver behind Patrick.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton hasn't done much outside of his nine-catch, 159-yard performance in the Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he has yet to find the end zone in 2021. He should continue to be the team's top target with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) still out, even if quarterback Drew Lock has to take over for Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lock has plenty of arm strength, but his chemistry with Sutton looked off in the second half last week. The Steelers are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to receivers so far this year, so Sutton will have a chance for his second big performance of the season. But if Lock is under center, Sutton should be viewed as more of a WR3 with WR2 upside.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton led the team with 47 receiving yards in the Week 4 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, but he caught only three of his eight targets. Denver's whole offense stopped dead in its tracks when quarterback Drew Lock relieved the concussed Teddy Bridgewater in the second half, and Lock and Sutton were out of sync anytime they tried to connect. Lock's touchdown at the end of the game in the end zone was intended for Sutton. The 25-year-old should remain the team's top target with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) likely out at least another few weeks, but he'll certainly be less attractive to fantasy managers as a potential WR2 if Lock is forced to make the start in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton had a 20.8 percent target share in the Week 3 shutout win over the New York Jets, but that produced only five catches for 37 yards. It was a disappointment after Sutton went off in the Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Baltimore Ravens defense will give Denver a stiff test this weekend, but the good news is that Sutton will remain the top target for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who attempted a deep pass (20-plus yards) at the fifth-highest rate in the NFL through three weeks. Jerry Jeudy (ankle) remains out with a high ankle sprain, and KJ Hamler (knee) is done for the season. Sutton will have WR2 upside in a game that Denver should have to pass much more often.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton caught all five of his targets in the 26-0 blowout win over the New York Jets in Week 3, but he managed just 37 yards on a day in which the Broncos offense relied heavily on the run. It was a disappointing line for his fantasy managers after he put up nine catches (12 targets) for 159 yards in the Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Broncos will need to throw the ball more as their schedule stiffens up moving forward, and Sutton remains one of the team's top targets through the air. Jerry Jeudy is still out with a high ankle sprain, and KJ Hamler (knee) could miss some time after getting injured on Sunday. Against a Baltimore Ravens defense that has looked vulnerable this year, Sutton will be a strong WR2.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (hip) was listed on the injury report this week with a hip injury, but he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday and is off the final injury report for Week 3 against the New York Jets. Sutton came alive in Week 2 with nine catches on 12 targets for 159 yards after he was noticeably quiet in the season opener. Needless to say, the Broncos No. 1 wideout looks fully healthy after missing most of last year with a torn ACL in his knee. And with Jerry Jeudy out at least another couple weeks, Sutton should easily lead the Broncos pass-catchers in targets moving forward. Denver's offense may not need to air it out much this Sunday, but fantasy managers should now feel comfortable deploying the 25-year-old as a WR2 with upside moving forward.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton started the season off slow with just one catch for 14 yards in Week 1 in his first game since tearing his ACL in Week 2 of last season. He showed that he's 100 percent healthy in the Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, though, catching nine of 12 targets for a team-high 159 yards. Sutton's catches and targets were also team-highs by a wide margin on Sunday. The 25-year-old was quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's clear No. 1 target with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) out, and he also had long gains of 55, 33 and 16 yards. The Broncos may not have to throw much to beat the New York Jets in Week 3, but fantasy managers should now feel comfortable locking Sutton into their starting lineups as a WR2/3.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
