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.

The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to re-sign impending free-agent wide receiver Calvin Ridley this offseason. However, per terms of their 2022 trade with the Atlanta Falcons to acquire Ridley, their third-round pick due to Atlanta turns into a second-rounder if the Jaguars extend Ridley's contract. It means that the Jaguars need to wait until after the new league year begins in March to avoid giving up a second-rounder, because at that point any deal would be a free-agent signing and not an extension. It will also give Ridley time to talk to other teams during the negotiating window, unless he and Jacksonville work out a loose agreement and wait. The 29-year-old had 1,016 receiving yards on 76 receptions and eight touchdowns as the team's No. 1 wideout in 2023 and would most likely be most valuable in fantasy if he stayed with the Jaguars.
