2018 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 40th pick in the draft, Sutton has a promising future, but enters the year as at best the Broncos' No. 3 target behind stalwarts Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. At 6-3, 218, and with a large catch radius, Sutton profiles as a good red-zone target - he scored 22 TDs his final two seasons in college - but his 4.54 40 speed is merely average for even a big receiver. GM John Elway believes Sutton can take over as the team's No. 1 eventually, but barring an injury to Thomas and Sanders, the rookie likely have to wait at least another year. Read Past Outlooks

Broncos' second-leading receiver in loss
WRDenver Broncos
November 4, 2018
Sutton recorded three receptions for 57 yards during Sunday's 19-17 defeat at the hands of the Texans.
ANALYSIS
The rookie second-rounder commanded five targets in his debut as the Broncos' No. 2 receiver, but his struggles with efficiency carried into Week 9 against Houston's top-12 pass defense. Sutton has posted a disappointingly low catch rate through the first nine games of his career (48 percent), but that should be expected based on the way Denver deploys the big-bodied receiver as a downfield weapon. The 6-foot-4 wideout has a catch of 20 or more yards in seven of nine appearances in 2018. When the Broncos take the field Nov. 18 following a bye week, that will come against the Chargers and a so far underperforming pass defense (bottom half of the league with over 255 yards allowed per game).
