News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 14): Sutton is defying low volume to be a high floor WR2 with Joe Flacco. Emmanuel Sanders is banged up and could still get traded. Sutton is much better prepared to be the #1 receiver this year and should be fine if that happens. He's a strong play against the Chiefs on Thursday.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 6 vs TEN (8 / 4 / 76 / 0 rec)
Sutton drew a team-high 8 targets with Emmanuel Sanders missing the 2nd half with a knee injury. The offense didn't do much on a day that the defense pitched a shutout, but Sutton still managed 76 yards. Flacco hit Sutton on a quick out route to convert 3rd down with a 12 yard gain in the 1st quarter. Sutton picked 41 of his yards on a beautiful diving catch down the left sideline in the 2nd quarter. Sutton fumbled the ball after a short 4th quarter reception, but the ball took a fortunate bounce out of bounds after he coughed it up. Sutton finished his day with a nice catch on skinny post route that picked up 18 yards in the 4th.
2019 Week 5 vs LAC (7 / 4 / 92 / 1 rec)
Sutton put up a good stat line, but really earned it all on one play, a 70 yard touchdown catch and run in the 1st. He made a strong catch on a deep slant route that converted 3rd and long late in the 1st quarter. He scored on the next play, hauling in a deep out route and breaking two tackles before sprinting down the sideline for a 70 yard touchdown. The Broncos dialed back the passing game after Sutton's touchdown gave them a two score lead. Sutton was still the only receiver Flacco could get on the same page with, and he drew a team high 7 targets.
2019 Week 4 vs JAX (9 / 6 / 62 / 2 rec)
Sutton tied with Sanders for a team-high 9 targets, finding the end zone twice. He picked up a couple of quick gains on the game's opening drive, including a 10 yard catch and run to convert 3rd and 10. Sutton lined up wide right and beat his man easily on a slant route in the end zone for his first score in the 2nd quarter. Sutton got loose on a deep post route for a nice gain late in the 4th quarter as the Broncos attempted a comeback drive. Sutton capped a late 4th quarter drive with a touchdown, running a skinny post right into the teeth of the defense. Flacco threw a beautiful pass that Sutton hauled in between three defenders.
2019 Week 3 vs GB (8 / 5 / 87 / 0 rec)
Sutton was the most effective receiver for Denver, working on the outside of the formation for most of his routes. Sutton got started with a 20 yard gain down the left sideline in the 1st quarter. His biggest gain of the day was a 52 yard catch-and-run down the right sideline in the 3rd quarter on a beautifully thrown deep ball from Flacco. Sutton had a beautiful catch on a fade route in the 3rd, but couldn't quite come down in bounds as the pass was a little too far outside. He caught another pass from Flacco in the end zone but couldn't come down inbounds on one series that ended with a Phillip Lindsay rushing touchdown.
2019 Week 2 vs CHI (7 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Sutton started slow, but was clutch at the end of the ballgame. He didn't get on the board until the 4th quarter, when he lined up wide right and pulled in a deep comeback route for a first down. Sutton made a diving grab on a deep post route in the 4th quarter that picked up 16(his longest of the day) and set Denver up in the Chicago end zone. Sutton took a big hit on a deep seam route late in the 4th, but seemed fine after. He converted 4th and 10 with a seam route to extend the Bronco's tying drive with just over two minutes left, then converted 4th and 3 later in the drive with a slant route from Flacco, setting up the game tying touchdown to Sanders.
2019 Week 1 vs OAK (8 / 7 / 120 / 0 rec)
Sutton was a bright spot for the Denver offense, providing a big target across the middle and deep downfield for Flacco. Sutton ripped off a deep post for a big gain in the first quarter only to have the play called back for a block in the back on tight end Fant. Sutton made a beautiful catch in traffic on a deep crossing route later in the 1st. He then ripped off another big gain up the right seam to start the 3rd quarter, breaking several tackles on his way to a 30 yard gain. Flacco round him on a deep crossing route for a gain of 25 yards in the 4th quarter. Flacco hit him again across the middle later in the 4th quarter, and Sutton was just a couple of yards short of a touchdown.
