2019 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 40th pick in the 2018 draft, Sutton got an extended opportunity with the Broncos after Demaryius Thomas was traded midseason. The results were passable under the circumstances - Sutton managed 8.4 YPT, 16 catches of 20-plus and three catches of 40-plus yards on 84 targets with Case Keenum at quarterback. At 6-3, 218, Sutton is a substantial receiver with a large catch radius, making him a good candidate for red-zone looks, even though he had only eight last year. He's not especially swift - 4.54 40 speed is roughly average for a receiver his size - and he dropped nine passes (10.7 percent of his targets) last year. Sutton should have a significant role again this season, though last year's top target, Emmanuel Sanders, appears to be back from an Achilles injury, and the team drafted tight end Noah Fant in the first round. More important, the Broncos' passing game - especially with newly signed Joe Flacco under center - projects to be among the league's worst. Read Past Outlooks

Solid showing in loss
WRDenver Broncos
October 17, 2019
Sutton secured six of eight targets for 87 yards in the Broncos' 30-6 loss to the Chiefs on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Sutton paced the Broncos in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night and continues to arguably push Emmanuel Sanders for the role of No. 1 receiver in the offense. Each player's upside is likely capped to an extent by Joe Flacco's limitations, but Sutton has now logged at least 76 receiving yards in four of his last five games. The second-year wideout will look to continue producing versus the Colts in a Week 8 matchup a week from Sunday.

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.
