Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (knee/leg cramping) has been ruled out for the rest of today.

The numbest of injuries today has simply been crazy. Before leaving, Sutton had three receptions for 66 yards in his season debut after missing the Broncos season opener last Monday night. Quarterback Drew Lock was already ruled out for Denver early in today's game.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is officially active for Week 2.

Sutton seemed to be moving around well in practice based off some video, and he’s good to go for today against the Steelers after missing the season opener last Monday night. Sutton has a tough matchup versus the Steelers, so it might be better to treat him as more of a FLEX option today.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.

Sutton is making good progress from his AC joint sprain, and he should have a pretty good chance to suit up against the Steelers this week. Sutton’s official game status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday, with the game having a 1:00 PM ET kickoff in Pittsburgh.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (shoulder) was officially limited in today's practice.

This was expected, and now we just have to see how Sutton is listed on the final Week 2 injury report when it's released tomorrow. He's likely trending toward a questionable tag.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (shoulder) was officially limited in today's practice.

With more time to heal his AC joint sprain, Sutton figures to have a better shot to play in Week 2 after he missed the season opener. Expect him to remain limited in practice all week, and we'll update you with his official status on the final Week 2 injury report when it's released on Friday.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is officially inactive for Week 1.

Sutton apparently couldn't do the ten jumping jacks as a test for his range of motion, but the big receiver is reportedly not far off from getting on the field. He could be trending toward a game-time call for Week 2 again, though. Rookie first-round pick Jerry Jeudy might immediately be the top target for Drew Lock tonight against the Titans.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is questionable for Week 1.

Sutton is a game-time decision to face the Titans in the final game of the NFL's opening week. Broncos head coach Vic Fangio says that it Sutton can do ten jumping jacks in pregame on Monday night—"the most primitive test there is"—then he'll be able to play. It's a tough call if you're hoping to insert Sutton into Week 1 fantasy lineups, so be sure to have a backup option from the late Monday night game if you're planning to start Sutton.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton has an AC joint sprain, according to 9News' Mike Klis.

Klis says Sutton is day-to-day with the shoulder injury. It could've been worse for Sutton after he injured his shoulder earlier today in practice, but the third-year receiver has a shot to play on Monday night against the Titans and shouldn't miss too much time if he does miss any games. The final Week 1 injury report for the Broncos will be out on Saturday, as the team plays in the final game of the week late Monday night.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton scores twice in win over the Chargers.

Both touchdowns came in the first quarter, as Sutton hauled in a diving, one-handed grab for a 26-yard touchdown, and then got free from Casey Hayward on a five-yard score. Overall, Sutton finished with four receptions for 76 yards, and he was the only Denver player to record more than 15 receiving yards in Drew Lock's first career start. The floor needs to be lowered with the rookie under center, but Sutton will remain an upside WR2 facing an easy schedule the rest of the way (@ HOU, @ HOU, v DET, v OAK).

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches one pass against the Chargers.

Sutton gained 25 yards on his one reception (three targets) in the Broncos' Week 17 loss. The second-round rookie's season ends with 42 receptions for 704 yards and four touchdowns, as he showed his upside as a big deep threat that can use his size and athleticism to go and get the ball over smaller defenders. It'll be interesting to see the new coaching staff in Denver, but Sutton is likely to be featured as one of the team's best players. Things will have to go right and he'll have to play well, i.e. it's not going to be easy, but Sutton will likely offer 1,000-yard, 10-touchdown upside in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton scores in Christmas Eve loss to Oakland.

Sutton caught six passes for a team-high 65 yards, including a 19-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. The play came on a Case Keenum scramble and toss into the end zone that Sutton came away with. The rookie should see plenty of attention next week against the Chargers, but he is worth considering as a low-end WR2/FLEX option to close out the year.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches five passes in Broncos' loss.

Sutton gained 42 yards on his five receptions in the Saturday night loss to the Browns. Early in the game, Sutton drew a pass interference call on a deep ball to the end zone, which set up the Broncos' only touchdown of the game; on the play, he appeared to be limping a bit because of the quad injury he had been dealing with, but he didn't appear affected by it the rest of the game. He was later targeted on another deep ball to the end zone, but it was slightly underthrown and intercepted. It wasn't a hugely productive night for the rookie receiver, but it was still good to see him get more targets down the field. He'll look to make a big play or two on Christmas Eve against the Raiders.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches two passes in Week 14.

Sutton gained 14 yards on his two receptions versus San Francisco, also adding one carry for -1 yard. The rookie receiver is being looked at to step up as the No. 1 receiver with Emmanuel Sanders now done for the season, but he just couldn't get much going in this one. The big rookie receiver will look to do some damage this Saturday night against the Browns, but there are probably safer options in the second week of the fantasy playoffs.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton scores in Broncos' win.

Sutton caught four passes for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 victory over the Bengals. The score was a 30-yard deep ball that Sutton went up to get in the end zone. This was the highest receiving total of the rookie's season, and it was his first touchdown since Week 7. He'll look to keep it going in the first week of the fantasy playoffs next week against the Niners.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches one pass in Week 12.

Sutton gained 14 yards on his lone reception against the Steelers, and he had a drop on a slant route. This was the rookie' first game without 5+ standard fantasy points since Week 3, so he'll look to bounce back in a good matchup versus Cincinnati next week.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton leads team in receiving as Denver improves to 4-6.

Sutton caught three-of-six targets for 78 yards, and his biggest play came on Case Keenum's final pass—a 30-yard throw over the middle to set up a game-winning field goal. The second-round rookie probably should have been targeted more than he was due to his size advantage against the Chargers corners, but it was a solid day nonetheless. Sutton, who is averaging 20.0 yards per reception this year, will look to keep it going next week with the Steelers coming to town. Consider him a low-end WR2/FLEX option.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton caught three passes for 57 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

It was a decent start for the rookie in the post-Demaryius Thomas era, as he had a couple receptions of 20+ yards on five targets. Sutton heads into the bye with at least 5.1 standard fantasy points in every game since the start of October, and he should be featured down the stretch for the 3-6 Broncos. Consider the six-foot-three receiver an upside FLEX option with WR2 potential down the stretch, including in Week 11 against the Chargers.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton leads the Broncos in Week 8 receiving.

Sutton caught three passes for 78 yards, including a long of 42 yards, in the loss to the Chiefs in Arrowhead. This is a new career-high in yardage for the rookie receiver, who could be a hot name on waiver wires in fantasy leagues if Demaryius Thomas is traded by the Broncos. He'll be worth a pickup if DT is out of the mix.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton scores in Week 7.

Sutton was open deep on a trick play, making a spectacular diving catch on a throw from fellow receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The rookie receiver was also targeted on a fade route later in the game, drawing a penalty to put the ball at the one-yard line. As the third option in the passing game, Sutton isn't a highly-recommended fantasy option yet, but he looks like an excellent dynasty-league own.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton caught three passes for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Sutton saw just four targets, but he was second on the team in receiving yards. The rookie continues operating as the clear No. 3 receiver, and he should have some bigger days ahead, particularly later in the season if Denver falls out of contention and features him. We'll see if he can make an impact against the Cardinals on Thursday night.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches first career touchdown in Week 5.

The rookie receiver opened the scoring for the Broncos in their loss to the Jets, lunging for and making a nice catch on a pass by the sideline in the end zone for eight yards. Overall, Sutton had two receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in the game. The touchdown should be the first of many for the rookie receiver, but he's not yet a highly-recommended fantasy option.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton caught three passes for 51 yards in Monday night's loss to the Chiefs.

Sutton had plenty of one-on-one opportunities on the outside and drew a pass interference inside the five to set up a touchdown, but he was unfortunately on the receiving end of a failed hook-and-ladder play that ended the game. The rookie is on pace for 568 yards and has yet to find the end zone at the season's quarter mark. He is probably just an upside bench stash in redraft leagues.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches two passes in Week 3.

Sutton gained 37 yards on his two receptions, with gains of 21 and 16 yards. The rookie had a drop late in the first half, but he made a key catch on a third down, so it was a mixed bag. Sutton has a great long-term outlook, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups right now.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches one pass in Week 2.

The rookie receiver was targeted six times against Oakland, but he had just one reception for nine yards. Sutton has obvious upside, but he’s best left on benches or on the waiver wire as Denver’s No. 3 receiver.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton catches two passes in NFL debut.

Sutton worked as the No. 3 receiver behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and he played well with two receptions for 45 yards. Sutton's first catch was a nice 20-yarder, and he followed it up with a 25-yard reception. Two 20+ yard reception to start a career isn't too bad, and he'll look to make many more big plays throughout his career. For now, Sutton is a volatile FLEX option if Thomas and Sanders remain on the field.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton has been the "talk of camp" in Denver.

NFL Network's James Palmer said of the rookie second-round receiver: "He's the third receiver. It's not even a competition. Everybody on this team knows it." Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are both reportedly energized by the team drafting Sutton and fellow rookie receiver DaeSean Hamilton this year, so the receiving group is looking good at this point in the summer. Despite the optimism around Sutton, who could be a major factor for the Broncos this year, Hamilton shouldn't be counted out having a big role. It's still early and preseason games haven't even been played.

Courtland Sutton | Broncos WR

The Broncos have selected SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton with the No. 40 pick (second round) in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Denver was looking for another weapon on the outside for new quarterback Case Keenum behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and they've opted for the talented and productive former SMU receiver. Sutton averaged at least 16.0 yards per reception in each of his full college seasons, and he had 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns in each of the last two years. At 6'4", Sutton gives the Broncos another big presence on the outside to go with Demaryius Thomas, and the three of Sutton, Thomas, and Sanders are all versatile enough to move around formations on offense. Sutton has a solid dynasty-league outlook, but he might struggle to make an immediate impact if he's no better than third on the team for targets as a rookie.
