Courtland Sutton Receives Team-High Seven Targets

Monday, September 18, 12:47 AM

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton wasn't able to find the end zone in the Week 2 loss to the Washington Commanders like he did in the season opener, but he still had a pretty encouraging line. In the 35-33 loss on Sunday, Sutton caught a team-high five passes for 66 yards on a team-high seven targets. All of Denver's success through the air in this one came deep down the field, with rookie Marvin Mims Jr. and Brandon Johnson catching all three of quarterback Russell Wilson's trips to paydirt. Despite the big games from Mims and Johnson this week, Sutton and Jerry Jeudy should remain quarterback Russell Wilson's top targets moving forward. And Sutton may currently have the highest fantasy floor of any Denver wideout after the first two weeks of the season.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba Gets Six Targets In Week 2

Monday, September 18, 7:03 AM

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba caught five of his six targets for 34 yards in Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions. The rookie had some extra time in two receiver sets with DK Metcalf missing most of the first half due to injury. When Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both healthy, though, Smith-Njigba will be relegated to three receiver sets. That playing time opportunity will be reduced if Seattle continues to utilize two and three tight end sets to shore up their battered and inexperienced offensive line, as they did in Week 2. Smith-Njigba should remain on fantasy benches until he is played more frequently.
