Summary

Make no mistake about it, Courtland Sutton is the no.1 wide receiver for the Broncos in 2019. A second-round pick out of SMU in the 2018 NFL draft, Sutton had a solid rookie season but did struggle with better coverage as he climbed the depth chart due to Demaryius Thomas getting traded away and Emmanuel Sanders getting hurt. Sanders is coming back from an Achilles' injury and may not be ready to go until the start of the regular season. In the meantime, Sutton has looked like he's in mid-season form during mincamp this spring. Sutton is big, fast and physical as a receiver but as a rookie he lacked nuance at the position. That's a part of his game he knows he had to work on, and we'll see if he can become a better route runner in 2019. The Broncos traded for Joe Flacco to be their starting quarterback and already he looks to have a strong chemistry with Sutton. Flacco has a strong arm and knows Sutton can get by a defense deep. He also knows (unlike Case Keenum last year) that Sutton can win any jump-ball situation and Flacco has no problem testing a defense 'above the rim.' Sutton has WR2 potenial in the Broncos offense this season. (May 6)

Broncos | Courtland Sutton set to become Denver's WR1 (Tue Jul 9, 03:19 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton has a 'great chance' to meet his own expectations and become the team's No. 1 receiver based on his offseason work with Joe Flacco, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com.'I'm excited going into this season knowing that I am going to get to be the No. 1 and I'll get all of the looks and all of the pressure,'' Sutton said.

Our View: Fantasy GMs need to know there's a changing of the guard at the WR position in Denver. Emmanuel Sanders, when he's fully recovered from his 2018 Achilles' injury, is likely to be the No. 2 receiver for the Broncos with Sutton getting the top spot. Sutton has worked on his subtlety and nuance as a route runner this offseason to go along with his already great size/speed combination. The Broncos are a run-heavy offense, but Sutton provides Fantasy GMs with WR3 upside. His current ADP is WR45 (10.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
