The ball bounced off his open hands in the end zone, winding up right in the arms of a defender. Sutton did (sort of) redeem himself by running the defender down the entire length of the field to take him down at the 1 yard line and prevent a pick-six as time expired.
2018 Week 4 vs KC (6 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)
Sutton drew 6 targets and narrowly missed a couple of long balls in the end zone from Keenum that would have really boosted his fantasy day.

Sutton lined up wide right as the lone receiver and beat his man on a deep ball, securing a diving catch for 42 yards. Sutton had another tough catch on the sidelines at the end of the 2nd quarter that just missed converting 3rd down by inches. Sutton nearly capped the 1st half off with a leaping touchdown in the end zone, but he was forced out of bounds while securing the catch. Sutton had another shot at a long touchdown in the end zone later in the 3rd quarter, but he couldn't quite secure the diving catch. Sutton did draw a pass interference call on the play, setting the Broncos up on the 5 yard line.
2018 Week 3 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Sutton worked as the third receiver and started his day off with an impressive catch in traffic, lining up wide right in a 4WR set and hauling in a slant route to convert 3rd and 11 with a 16 yard gain in the 1st quarter. Sutton had a bad drop at the end of the 2nd half on a quick slant route that would have converted 3rd and long. Sutton had a big reception down the left sideline in the 4th quarter that converted another 3rd and long. Sutton finished with just 3 targets.
2018 Week 2 vs OAK (6 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Sutton had a drop early in the 1st quarter on a quick slant route and also let a quick slant route clang off his open hands in the 2nd quarter. Sutton hauled in a pass at the very end of the second quarter and successfully executed a hook and ladder toss to Emmanuel Sanders, who was brought down as the clock expired on the first half. Sutton nearly had a huge gain on a diving catch down the left sideline, but he double-clutched the ball as he was sliding out of bounds, and the play was overturned. Sutton suffered another heartbreaker later in the 3rd as he made an amazing leaping catch over a defender in the end zone, but couldn't quite get both feet down inbounds. Denver challenged the ruling but lost the challenge.
2018 Week 1 vs SEA (5 / 2 / 45 / 0 rec)
Sutton worked behind Sanders and Thomas in 3WR sets, catching a deep post for a nice gain on his first target of the game. Sutton lined up in the right slot in the 4th quarter and hauled in a skinny post for another big gain. He was targeted five times overall. Sutton is clearly the third receiver behind Thomas and Sanders, but he probably won't have much value unless one of them go down.
Latest NewsBroncos | Courtland Sutton has QB drooling (Sat Mar 16, 08:37 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is one of the players QB Joe Flacco said he is 'excited' to work with in 2019. Our View: Sutton is in line to have a breakout year in 2019. While Emmanuel Sanders may still be the team's lead receiver (provided he's healthy), Sutton is not that far behind him in terms of potential 2019 production. Sutton goes deep and makes plays 'above the rim' near the end zone. Flacco still has a big arm and should fire more than a few deep shots towards Sutton in 2019.
