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

Goes for 87 yards
WRDenver Broncos
September 22, 2019
Sutton caught five of eight targets for 87 yards during Sunday's 27-16 loss in Green Bay.
ANALYSIS
Denver was pushed all the way back near their own red zone in the third quarter when Joe Flacco lofted one down the sideline to Sutton, who got open on a double move for a gain of 52 yards. It was Sutton's second game with at least 85 yards to start the season. Though Denver's offense hasn't clicked quite enough for Sutton to be an upper-echelon target, he remains dangerous downfield -- averaging 15.4 yards per catch -- all while improving underneath as compared to last season. After a start full of tough defenses, he'll get another one Sunday with Jacksonville.

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.
