Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton continued a stellar 2023 season in Sunday's 24-7 win over the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14. He had only three receptions for a team-high 62 receiving yards in the contest, but he managed to find the end zone for the 10th time on the season on an outstanding one-handed, 46-yard catch from quarterback Russell Wilson in the third quarter. The 28-year-old has hands-down been Denver's offensive MVP this year, and he's now found paydirt in seven of the last eight games. He's failed to score a touchdown in only three games in 2023. Sutton has become a top-15 fantasy wideout because of his nose for the end zone and his strong chemistry with Wilson in the biggest moments. He'll have a great opportunity to keep the good times rolling in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions, too.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has been a touchdown machine in 2023 with a career-high nine scores in 12 games, which ranks third among all wideouts, behind only Tyreek Hill (12) and Mike Evans (10). He broke a five-game TD streak in Week 12 but returned to the end zone in last week's loss to the Houston Texans. The 28-year-old is the WR15 overall in half-PPR scoring and is a must-start, low-end WR2 in Week 14 for a juicy matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, a defense that has given up the third-most half-PPR points per game (33.2) to opposing pass-catchers in 2023. The Broncos couldn't get into a rhythm last week against the Houston Texans on offense, but they should be able to bounce back on Sunday against LA, and Sutton will continue to be the focal point through the air.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton continued his scoring ways in Week 13's 22-17 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday when he found the end zone for the ninth time this year. Sutton broke a five-game TD streak in last week's win over the Cleveland Browns, but he was able to get into the end zone again in Week 13 on a 45-yard bomb deep down the field to get the Broncos back into the game in the second half. Sutton only had two receptions on the day, but he did lead the team with seven targets as he continues to be quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite target through the air. The 28-year-old has had a high floor as a WR3/flex in fantasy lineups in 2023 and could continue to thrive in a good matchup next week against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton snapped a five-game touchdown streak in last week's win over the Cleveland Browns, catching three of his six targets for 61 yards. Sutton, who is tied for third among wideouts this year with eight touchdowns in 11 games, will be looking to start a new touchdown streak against the Houston Texans in Week 13, but it won't be easy. The Texans defense has been an OK matchup for opposing wideouts this year, but Houston has allowed just six total touchdowns to the position. Although Sutton has seen double-digit targets only twice this year, he's still quarterback Russell Wilson's go-to target, especially in the red zone. Sutton has relied on TDs for his fantasy value in 2023, but he should have a solid floor this weekend as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 against the Texans.
Dec 2, 2023 1:55 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton tied for the team-high in catches (three) and targets (six) while going for a team-high 61 receiving yards in the 29-12 Week 12 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Sutton had a couple clutch receptions and averaged a healthy 20.3 yards per catch, but the main storyline in this one was that he failed to extend his touchdown streak to six games. The 28-year-old came close, as was three yards shy of a touchdown on the team's opening drive and also had a ball slip through his outstretched arms in the back of the end zone later in the game. It was only the third game this year that Sutton hasn't found paydirt. Still, he's quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite target by far and has a great chance to find the end zone again next week against the Houston Texans.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has been Denver's offensive MVP through 11 weeks in 2023 with 45 receptions (62 targets) for 499 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. He has really had a nose for the end zone in 2023 and is quarterback Russell Wilson's go-to target in the biggest moments. Sutton has scored in each of the last five games, but that TD streak will be put to the test in Week 12 against a Cleveland Browns defense that is allowing the second-fewest half-PPR points to receivers (20.7) per game, including just six touchdowns all year. The Browns secondary is vulnerable due to some recent injuries, but still, Sutton has clear bust potential this Sunday if he cannot find the end zone for the sixth straight game. The 28-year-old has been targeted double-digit times just twice this year and has topped 50 yard receiving in only half of his games played.

When the Denver Broncos have needed a big play this year, wide receiver Courtland Sutton has come through time and time again. That was again the case in the 21-20 Sunday night win over the Minnesota Vikings, as Sutton caught the game-winning touchdown on a 15-yard jump ball in the end zone late in the fourth quarter to give Denver their fourth straight win. It was the 28-year-old's career-high eighth TD of the year, and he has now found paydirt in five straight games and eight of his 10 games this year. The touchdown machine only had four receptions on five targets -- one on a fantastic one-handed grab in which he was also being held -- but it was still good enough to lead the team with 66 yards. Sutton's chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson has been strong as ever, although he has the potential to disappoint fantasy managers if he cannot find the end zone. Scoring for a sixth consecutive game will be difficult in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.
Nov 20, 2023 12:23 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton is having a career season with quarterback Russell Wilson's resurgence under head coach Sean Payton. The 28-year-old pass-catcher leads the team in catches (41), targets (57), receiving yards (433) and touchdowns (seven), which are also a career-high for Sutton. He has scored in seven of nine games and will be looking to score for the fifth straight game on Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have been better against receivers in recent weeks, but on the season as a whole, they've allowed the eighth-most half-PPR points (30.5) to the position per game, including nine touchdowns. Sutton is clearly Wilson's No. 1 target, but he's exceeded 50 receiving yards in only four of nine games this year. He's a touchdown-dependent, high-end WR3 for a solid matchup against Minnesota this week.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has easily been the team's top receiver in 2023, and that continued in Week 10's 24-22 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. Sutton led Denver in all receiving categories in the upset win, catching eight of his 11 targets for 53 yards and found the end zone for the fourth straight game. No other pass-catcher was targeted more than four times or had more than four receptions in this one. His touchdown catch was a fantastic seven-yard grab in which he dragged his toe in the end zone. The 28-year-old is clearly quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite target through the air and has already set a new career-high with seven TDs this year in nine games. The downside to Sutton is that despite all of his trips to paydirt this year, he has gone over 50 yards receiving in only four of his nine games, making him a touchdown-dependent WR3/flex in fantasy lineups.
Nov 14, 2023 1:37 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has easily been the team's most productive pass-catcher in 2023, finding the end zone a career-high-tying six times in just eight games played. His fantasy managers will be hoping the Week 9 bye won't slow him down, as he'll be looking for his fourth straight game with a touchdown on Monday night in Buffalo against the Bills. The Bills defense has been in the middle of the pack in terms of half-PPR fantasy points allowed to the position and have given up seven touchdowns in nine games. Sutton is one of quarterback Russell Wilson's top targets, especially in the red zone, but he has double-digit targets just once in 2023 (back in Week 3). The 28-year-old pass-catcher has become a strong WR3 in fantasy lineups, although he's also been somewhat touchdown-dependent.
Nov 11, 2023 1:32 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton picked up his sixth receiving touchdown of the season in the team's surprising 24-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Sutton's receiving touchdown total is now tied for third in the NFL. Playing with a lead and gifted short fields on several occasions, Denver didn't need to throw to win, so the touchdown salvaged Sutton's day for fantasy football. The 28-year-old caught just two passes for 29 yards. When the Broncos return from their Week 9 bye, Sutton will hope to continue his torrid touchdown rate.
Oct 30, 2023 9:47 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has proven himself the most reliable pass-catcher for the team this season. The 28-year-old has 31 catches (43 targets) for 351 yards. He also has five touchdowns, one away from tying his career-high from 2019, when he made the Pro Bowl. Of course, the inconsistent play of Russell Wilson makes it extremely hard to trust any of the Broncos' offensive options. Denver is also expected to get slammed by heavy snow, with reports calling for over a foot heading into Sunday's contest. As a result, fantasy managers may want to consider other options in Week 8, although Sutton can still be used at least as a flex option.
Oct 28, 2023 2:10 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has had a nose for the end zone in 2023. It helps that he's been quarterback Russell Wilson's clear favorite target in the passing game. Sutton was very efficient in the 19-17 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 7, catching all six of his targets for 76 yards and his fifth touchdown of the year. The Broncos' only touchdown on the day was an 18-yard reception from the 28-year-old, and he's now just one TD shy of tying his career high in scores, which was set in his lone Pro Bowl season in 2019 in 16 games played. Sutton led all the team's receiving categories on the day. Heading into a rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8, Sutton has cemented himself as a high-floor WR3/flex in fantasy. In Week 6 against KC, he had four catches for 46 yards and a touchdown.
Oct 22, 2023 11:53 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has been a pleasant surprise in 2023, especially when considering his poor finish to 2022. He's developed strong chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson, as he leads the team in targets (37), catches (25), receiving yards (275) and TDs (four) through six weeks. The 28-year-old had just one catch for 13 yards in Week 5 but bounced back with his fourth score in six games in the Week 6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Sutton will have his work cut out for him in Week 7 against a Green Bay Packers team allowing the second-fewest receiving yards (623) on the season (in five games) and just 23.6 half-PPR points per game to the position. Still, he has the highest floor of any Broncos pass-catcher and makes for a solid WR3/flex option in fantasy lineups.
Oct 21, 2023 11:38 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton saved his fantasy line in the 19-8 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football by scoring his fourth touchdown of the season on an excellent one-handed catch in the fourth quarter. Sutton finished the contest with team-highs across the board in catches (four), targets (six) and receiving yards (46) to go with the touchdown on a night where quarterback Russell Wilson was held under 100 passing yards. The 28-year-old is clearly Wilson's most trusted target and has been the only trustworthy fantasy option from Denver's receiving room through six weeks of the season. Denver's offense will hopefully be able to move the ball more consistently in their Week 7 home affair against the Green Bay Packers. Sutton will be have a solid floor as a WR4/flex for that one.
Oct 13, 2023 12:41 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton had by far his worst game in the first five weeks in the Week 5 loss to the New York Jets, catching just one pass on three targets for 13 yards. This came after Sutton had found the end zone three times in the first four games of 2023 as quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite target in what has looked like a rejuvenated offense under head coach Sean Payton. The 28-year-old doesn't have the greatest of matchups on Thursday night against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have allowed 25.8 half-PPR points per game to opposing wideouts (10th-fewest in football). But he should be able to bounce back from last week's showing as a solid WR3/4 in fantasy lineups in a game in which the Broncos will likely be playing from behind. Sutton comes into Week 6 as a top-30 fantasy receiver.
Oct 12, 2023 12:30 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton entered the Week 5 game against the New York Jets with three touchdowns in his first four games in 2023. After ending last season as an unplayable fantasy wideout because of Denver's offensive struggles, Sutton had so far benefitted from quarterback Russell Wilson's resurgence in head coach Sean Payton's system. Sutton ran into a tough matchup against a tough Jets defense and shutdown cornerback Sauce Gardner, though, and finished with just one catch on three targets for a season-low 13 yards. His first and only catch didn't come until the fourth quarter. Despite the disappointing showing, Sutton should be confidently deployed as a WR3/flex option in the first divisional clash next Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6.
Oct 8, 2023 11:02 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has exceeded expectations through the first four weeks of the 2023 season, checking in as the WR18 in half-PPR scoring with three touchdowns in four games played. He leads the team in receptions (20) and targets (28), is second in receiving yards (216) and is tied for the lead in touchdowns (three). Sutton has been quarterback Russell Wilson's go-to guy through the air, and they've both benefitted from an increase in offensive production under new head coach Sean Payton. Sutton could see a lot of shutdown cornerback Sauce Gardner in a Week 5 matchup against the New York Jets, though. The Jets D has also allowed 19.8 half-PPR points per game to receivers (second-fewest) so far this year, so fantasy managers may want to temper expectations for Sutton this Sunday.
Oct 6, 2023 12:48 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton now has touchdowns in three of the first four games of the season after finding the end zone a combined four times in the previous three seasons combined. His third touchdown of the year in the Week 4 win over the Chicago Bears in the Windy City on Sunday saved an otherwise lackluster performance for his fantasy managers. Sutton finished the 31-28 win, Denver's first of the year, with three catches on five targets for only 27 yards and the touchdown. The 27-year-old tied Jerry Jeudy in both catches and targets for the team lead on the day as quarterback Russell Wilson spread the ball around effectively. Sutton and Denver's offense have a much tougher matchup in Week 5 against the New York Jets, but he's proving to have a nose for the end zone this year as a WR3/flex for fantasy managers.
Oct 1, 2023 11:31 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has been a top-25 fantasy wideout through the first three weeks. It's a big shift since the end of the 2022 campaign, when he couldn't be trusted at all in lineups. Through three weeks, he's been Russell Wilson's go-to guy and has hauled in 17 of 23 targets for 189 yards and two touchdowns. Despite fumbling twice in the demolition in Week 3 by the Dolphins, Sutton had 19.1 half-PPR points. The 27-year-old former second-rounder early season play has vaulted him to WR3/flex status for fantasy managers with a high floor, especially heading into a juicy Week 4 matchup against the porous Chicago Bears defense. Jerry Jeudy will pull targets away from Sutton inevitably, but the two could co-exist in Sean Payton's offense as long as Wilson keeps humming.
