Courtland Sutton Will Report To Training Camp

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton will report to the team for the start of training camp. Sutton staged a holdout this spring, but his absence won't extend into camp. His contract doesn't expire until 2025. The 28-year-old wideout hauled in a career-high 10 touchdown passes in 16 games for the Broncos last year, good for a ridiculous 16.9% rate over his 59 receptions (90 targets), so regression in the scoring column is certainly due. Still, Sutton is Denver's clear-cut alpha target for whoever is under center this fall following Jerry Jeudy's offseason departure, and he should be treated as a volume-based WR3 in drafts this summer.

Courtland Sutton Still Non-Committal Ahead Of Training Camp

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton refused to comment on whether he plans to attend training camp, according to Jeff Legwold of Sutton, who is still seeking a contract extension but remains in a "stalemate" with the Broncos, admitted he considered skipping minicamp. He remains optimistic about getting an extension signed before training camp begins. "We'll see what happens,'' Sutton said. "We've got a month to be able to get things situated and hopefully things get situated. ... This is where I want to be, this is home, this is where I want to hoist the Lombardi trophy, this is where I want to retire.'' The 28-year-old is coming off a relatively modest 2024 campaign in which he caught 59 passes for 772 yards but did record a career-high 10 touchdowns. With Jerry Jeudy shipped off to Cleveland, Sutton is in line to operate as Denver's No. 1 wide receiver. However, a quarterback room featuring Bo Nix, Jarrett Stidham, and Zach Wilson leaves a lot to be desired. Inconsistent quarterback play could keep Sutton in the WR3 tier for fantasy football this year.

Courtland Sutton Hints At Training Camp Holdout

Even though Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton showed up for mandatory minicamp this week after being absent at voluntary organized team activities, he hinted that he could hold out of training camp next month as he seeks a long-term contract extension. He's entering the third year of a four-year, $60.8 million extension that he signed back in 2021. Sutton has a $13 million salary in 2024 with only $2 million guaranteed. The 28-year-old wants a bigger contract after scoring a career-high 10 touchdowns in 2023. "You know we'll see, we'll see what happens," Sutton said when asked if he'll show up for training camp if his contract negotiations remain at a stalemate. Sutton will be the unquestioned WR1 in Denver now that Jerry Jeudy is gone, but the QB situation isn't ideal, and he will be facing major regression in the TD department in 2024.

Courtland Sutton Had Offseason Ankle Surgery

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (ankle) said he had ankle surgery this offseason in Florida. On another topic, Sutton said his representatives and the team are discussing a contract extension, but they are in a "stalemate." This explains why the 28-year-old pass-catcher hasn't been present for organized team activities this offseason. Sutton is feeling good, though, and should be ready for training camp next month and the start of the 2024 regular season. Contract-wise, he still has two years left on his deal, but only $2 million in guarantees. Sutton tore his ACL in 2020 and hasn't been able to come close to his 2019 Pro Bowl form, when he produced a career-high 1,112 receiving yards. He did have a career-high 10 touchdowns in 16 games for the Broncos last year, but fantasy managers should expect a lot of regression with quarterback Russell Wilson no longer in town.

Courtland Sutton Plans To Report To Minicamp

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton was a no-show at voluntary workouts as he continues to seek a new contract. During an appearance on the DNVR Broncos Podcast, however, Sutton said that he will be reporting to mandatory minicamp. If he skipped minicamp as well, he was facing a fine of up to $100k. After Jerry Jeudy's departure, Sutton is the defacto number one receiver and he shouldn't have an issue commanding targets in this offense. The biggest question mark is playing with a rookie quarterback in Bo Nix, so fantasy managers may see Sutton take a step back in fantasy production.

Courtland Sutton Not At OTAs

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton is not present for voluntary organized team activities this week as he seeks a new contract. "There isn't any concern. Here's why," head coach Sean Payton said. "That will sort itself out." General manager George Paton previously said the team wasn't worried about Sutton's absence from voluntary workouts. The 28-year-old has two years and around $27.6 million remaining on his current deal, with just $2 million guaranteed. The former second-rounder in 2018 out of SMU will be the clear No. 1 wideout in Denver in 2024 after catching 59 passes for 772 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns in 16 games in 2023. The competition for targets won't be a problem, especially with Jerry Jeudy now gone, but Denver's QB situation and Sutton's likely touchdown regression are what fantasy managers will be worried about.

Courtland Sutton Remains Away From The Team

The Denver Broncos continued voluntary offseason workouts on Monday. However, the team remains without wide receiver Courtland Sutton, who continues to work out at his residence in Florida. The veteran has two years left on a four-year, $60 million extension, but has made it clear he wants a raise. He also requested a trade, although the team is apparently not looking to move him. Of course, there will be updates on the situation moving ahead. Yet, it won't be as much of a concern until the summer when Denver begins training camp. With that said, several teams will monitor things, especially with Sutton coming off a massive year, which included a career-high 10 touchdowns. But if he stays with the Broncos, his fantasy outlook is directly related to how Bo Nix and Zach Wilson look heading into the 2024-25 campaign.

Broncos Not Concerned With Courtland Sutton

The Denver Broncos don't sound too concerned with wide receiver Courtland Sutton missing the start of the team's voluntary offseason workouts earlier this week. "It's 100 percent voluntary. It's the first week of the offseason program. Sean has talked to Courtland; I've talked to Courtland. He's in a good place, and I'll just leave it at that," general manager George Paton said. Sutton reportedly didn't show up because he wants a new contract, especially after scoring a career-high 10 touchdowns in 2023. The 28-year-old has two years left on his current deal, but only $2 million is guaranteed. We have a ways to go before this comes an official holdout, but fantasy managers should expect plenty of regression in the TD department. Sutton should see plenty of targets with Jerry Jeudy now gone, but the QB situation in Denver is one of the worst in the league.

Courtland Sutton Doesn't Report For Voluntary Workouts

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton did not report on Monday for the start of voluntary offseason workouts as he seeks a new contract, according to a source. Sutton is going on his 10th starting quarterback in seven seasons in Denver and has only $2 million guaranteed left on his current deal. He had 10 touchdowns in 2023 while ranking 56th in the league in targets (90). The former second-round pick in 2018 out of SMU also had 59 receptions for 772 yards last year, but now that Russell Wilson is in Pittsburgh and the Broncos currently have Jarrett Stidham as their starter under center, Sutton is due for some big regression (mainly in the TD department) in 2024 if he sticks around in Denver. Even with Jerry Jeudy also gone, the 28-year-old Sutton could struggle to come close to another 1,000-yard season with more questions at QB.

Courtland Sutton Finishes Career Year With A Whimper

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (ankle) wouldn't mind forgetting his performance in the Week 18 regular season finale loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, but it didn't put a damper on what was a memorable year for the sixth-year receiver. Sutton injured his ankle in the 27-14 loss and finished with only one reception on four targets for two yards. The 28-year-old pass-catcher finished an ultra-productive season with a total of 59 catches on 90 targets for 772 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns. His previous high in TDs was set in his second season in 2019, when he had six. It was surely an impressive year for Sutton, but the majority of his fantasy production was propped up by his reliance on finding the end zone and his chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson, who is expected to be cut in March.

Courtland Sutton Cleared To Return In Week 18

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 16 that kept him out of the Week 17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but he was able to practice in full on Thursday and Friday and has been cleared to return for the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. The 28-year-old has had a fabulous 2023 season, catching a career-high 10 touchdowns, which is tied for third among all wideouts. But despite his red-zone prowess, Sutton ranks as the WR27 in half-PPR points with only 58 receptions for 770 yards in his 15 games played. All of his production this year came with Russell Wilson at quarterback for the Broncos, so Sutton probably won't be worth his DFS price for the regular season finale now that Jarrett Stidham is Denver's starter under center.

Courtland Sutton, Marvin Mims Jr. Practicing In Full

It looks as though Denver Broncos wide receivers Courtland Sutton (concussion) and Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) will both be returning after one-game absences to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. Both wideouts were upgraded to full participants in practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Sutton and Mims still need to gain final clearance from the league's concussion protocol before Sunday, but it appears they are well on their way. The 28-year-old Sutton is sitting at only 770 receiving yards on 58 catches over 15 games this year, but he's scored a career-high 10 touchdowns. However, all that damage came with quarterback Russell Wilson, who is now benched. With Jarrett Stidham starting, Sutton is a DFS receiver to fade if he's active in Week 18.

Courtland Sutton, Marvin Mims Jr. Limited In Practice Wednesday

Denver Broncos wide receivers Courtland Sutton (concussion) and Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) were both able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday ahead of their team's Week 18 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. Sutton and Mims both missed Denver's Week 17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers but appear to be on the right track heading into the regular-season finale. That being said, the Broncos are already eliminated from playoff contention, so they could opt to err on the side of caution and hold their receivers out of action in Week 18. Stay tuned to both players' final injury statuses heading into the weekend. Jerry Jeudy, Brandon Johnson, and Lil'Jordan Humphrey served as the team's top receivers last week and would presumably do so again this weekend if Sutton and Mims don't play.

Courtland Sutton Ruled Out For Week 17

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (concussion) remains in concussion protocol after missing all three practices this week. He has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Denver's offense will find itself shorthanded this weekend with Sutton sidelined and quarterback Russell Wilson benched. Although Jerry Jeudy and Marvin Mims Jr. are expected to earn increased snaps this week, they will be difficult to trust in fantasy football with Jarrett Stidham quarterbacking the team.

Courtland Sutton Out Again On Thursday

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol and missed his second straight practice of the week on Thursday. Sutton was forced from Denver's Christmas Eve loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday due to a concussion and is now in jeopardy of missing his first game of the year in Week 17 against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. The 28-year-old had a career year in 2023, but it's looking like fantasy managers may be without him during their championship matchups this week. Rookie Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) popped up on the injury report on Thursday, too, so Jerry Jeudy and Brandon Johnson could have much bigger roles in the passing game in a great matchup against the Bolts. On the flip side, with quarterback Russell Wilson now benched, all of Denver's pass-catchers are even less attractive in fantasy.

Courtland Sutton Not At Wednesday's Practice

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (concussion) was not present at the team's practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion in Sunday night's Christmas Eve loss to the New England Patriots. The 28-year-old gave fantasy managers a donut as an early Christmas present on Sunday when he failed to corral his only target against the Pats before getting hurt. He'll need to pass through the league's concussion protocol this week if he wants to play in Week 17 against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. Given the fact that the Broncos' playoff chances are hanging by a thread at this point, it seems likely Sutton will be held out this week. Jerry Jeudy, Brandon Johnson and rookie Marvin Mims Jr. could should all see more targets if Sutton misses this Sunday's game, but their fantasy ceilings will also be limited now that Denver is turning its offense over to quarterback Jarrett Stidham for the final two weeks.

Dec 27, 2023 6:38 PM EST

Courtland Sutton Will Not Return On Sunday

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton will not return on Sunday night due to a concussion. Sutton has been the main contributor in the passing game and has been the most consistent offensive player to find the end zone for the Broncos. Head injuries, whether it's a concussion or not, usually hold players out more often than not, so this is a bit of a worrisome injury at the moment. While he's out, Jordan McLaughlin and Marvin Mims Jr. have been getting the bulk of the targets in this matchup. Fantasy managers will want to check back after the game to see how long Sutton will be out as he goes through concussion protocol. Mims and Jerry Jeudy will be seeing the targets for the rest of this contest.

Courtland Sutton A Low-End WR2 In Week 16

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton caught five passes for 71 yards in a Week 15 loss to the Detroit Lions. Sutton has shown a nose for the end zone in 2023 as he has 10 touchdowns on just 58 receptions. He will look to keep it going in Week 16's home matchup against the New England Patriots on Sunday night. The Patriots have been a decent matchup for wide receivers as they are allowing the 12th-most fantasy points per game to the position this season. Sutton is easily Russell Wilson's favorite target when Denver drops back to pass and will be on the map as a low-end WR2 in Week 16.

No Touchdown For Courtland Sutton Saturday Night

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton was unable to find the end zone in the Week 15 blowout loss to the Detroit Lions for only the fourth time this year. He remained stuck on 10 touchdowns for the season, but he still had a solid performance in the 42-17 loss to Detroit by catching a team-high five of his six targets for 71 yards, which was only three yards shy of the team's receiving leader in Jerry Jeudy. Four of the 28-year-old's five catches went for over 10 yards. It was the second time in the last three games that Sutton has topped 70 receiving yards, although Sutton surprisingly has not had a 100-yard game yet in 2023. Sutton has a bit of bust potential if he doesn't find the end zone, but he will continue to be quarterback Russell Wilson's most reliable target and will have WR2 upside yet again in Week 16 against the New England Patriots.

Courtland Sutton An Absolute Must-Start Against Lions

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton should be locked into all starting fantasy lineups as a WR2 in Week 15 for the Saturday night game against the Detroit Lions. Sutton is tied for second among all wideouts with 10 touchdowns in 13 games this year, which has obviously made him extremely valuable in fantasy in 2023. He has scored in all but three games this year and is the clear favorite of quarterback Russell Wilson, especially in big moments. Sutton's 79 targets rank only 38th in the league at his position, but he's made up for it with a career-high 67.1% catch rate. The 28-year-old will have a good chance for his 11th TD of the year against a Lions defense that has been a top-10 matchup for opposing receivers all year. In the last five weeks, they've allowed the fourth-most half-PPR points to pass-catchers, including eight touchdowns (second-most).
