Courtland Sutton (Broncos)
6’4, 216 lbs
Sutton is going way too low in fantasy drafts period. There is talk of Emmanuel Sanders being ready to go week one, but I can’t imagine that happening with a guy who is 32 and coming off a torn Achilles late in the season. It would be an unheard of return from that injury so late in the year. Sutton is the Broncos‘ new #1 receiver and that is what you need to keep in mind when considering the Courtland Sutton 2019 Fantasy Outlook.
Last season in only 9 starts, Sutton had 42 receptions for 704 yards and 4 TDs. While he wasn’t efficient on his targets he did manage 16.8 yards-per-reception. Receivers usually put up more production in their second season, and his targets will only go up.
Courtland Sutton is massive and can win jump balls. His red zone usage is sure to go up because only one of his four TDs came in the red zone. Joe Flacco is the new QB and he isn’t the best in the league, but neither is Case Keenum, who Sutton was throwing the ball last year.
Sutton is a high draft pick on a team without a true #1 to compete with unless your buying into a miracle recovery by Sanders. At 6’4 he can win the 50/50 balls and should be a force in the red zone. If Sanders starts the year on the PUP, which I think he will, Sutton is a steal where he currently getting drafted.
