Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 7 vs ARI (3 / 1 / 28 / 1 rec)
Sutton made an outstanding diving effort for his 1st quarter touchdown. Keenum tossed the ball to Sanders on an end-around run, while Sutton was working his way to the end zone. Sanders nearly overthrew him, but Sutton laid out for the ball and came down with a one-handed grab. Sutton was targeted again in the back of the end zone at the end of the 1st half, drawing a pass interference penalty that set the Broncos up on the 1 yard line. With the Broncos taking an early lead, Keenum didn't have to throw much, and Sutton finished his day with just 3 targets.
2018 Week 6 vs LAR (4 / 3 / 58 / 0 rec)
Sutton didn't record any catches in the 1st half, finally getting on the board with a short reception on a curl in the 3rd quarter. Keenum found him deep down the left sideline late in the 4th quarter for a 41 yard gain. Sutton also drew a personal foul, tacking 15 more yards on to the play for the Broncos. Keenum looked for Sutton in the back of the end zone once in the 3rd and again at the end of the game, with Sutton drawing a pass interference penalty to set the Broncos up on the 1 yard line on the latter attempt. Thomas's touchdown followed on the next play. Sutton is drawing multiple red zone targets per game, but isn't hitting on much with Keenum struggling.
2018 Week 5 vs NYJ (6 / 2 / 18 / 1 rec)
Sutton caught an 8 yard touchdown in the first quarter. He lined up tight to the left side of the formation in a 3WR bunch set, working his way across the back of the end zone and securing an impressive diving catch in the right corner. Keenum looked for Sutton in the back of the end zone again near the end of the 2nd quarter, but the QB placed the ball to high for Sutton to bring down. Sutton had a nice catch and run up the right sideline in the 3rd quarter, but had the play called back for offensive pass interference. Keenum looked for Sutton again in the back corner of the end zone with 11 minutes left in the 4th, but threw the ball well out of bounds. Sutton caught another quick curl to convert 3rd and 4 late in the 4th quarter. Sutton had an unfortunate drop at the end of the game that resulted in a Keenum interception. 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. He picked up most of his yardage on a huge play down the right sideline in the 2nd quarter. 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 | Big catch for Courtland Sutton (Thu Oct 18, 11:43 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught one pass, a 28-yard touchdown, in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7. Our View: Sutton didn't have a big role in this one because of the game script, but he still at least had a big play to salvage something for his teams. He'll be a much better play against the Chiefs next week.
