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

Quiet in high-scoring win
WRDenver Broncos
December 8, 2019
Sutton caught five of seven targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 38-24 win over Houston.
ANALYSIS
Sutton was surprisingly quiet on a day that saw rookie quarterback Drew Lock throw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns. On the bright side, Sutton was the only Denver player to see more than four targets, and it looks like Lock has the skills to get the ball to his No. 1 wide receiver consistently. Roll Sutton out with confidence against the Chiefs in Week 15.

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.
