Courtland Sutton 2019 Outlook

Recommended Posts

With Emmanuel Sanders’ outlook not looking great, Sutton will likely be the #1 option in Joe Flacco’s offense.

He had a portion of the 2018 season as the number one, with Keenum throwing him the ball. Are things looking up with the new QB, and new system?

I think Flacco will be an improvement over Keenum. 

"Flacco has played considerably under center. Scanagrello offense will have QB under center plenty." - @MikeKlis

and

"New Broncos HC Vic Fangio spent one season in Baltimore while Joe Flacco was Ravens’ QB and knows what he will be getting. Former Broncos’ exec Gary Kubiak also was a Flacco fan, and has mentioned how much he liked the soon-to-be Broncos’ quarterback." -@AdamSchefter

If they improve the OLine a bit, this could be way better than the first impression seems.

Not buying in.   Flacco gets worse every year, Sutton was fine last year for a rookie, but Flacco rarely gets a WR in the top 25, and Sutton's no guarantee to even be Denver's alpha wideout.

Sutton actually had a pretty decent rookie season (too many 1 or 2 reception duds though after DT was traded).  The biggest issue is that I'm not convinced that he will even be the best fantasy WR on DEN.  DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick both outscored him in PPR to close out the year after Sanders got injured (last 4 weeks of the season).  Both of those guys will be very late rounders, whereas Sutton will most likely slot in towards the end of middle rounds.  I'd rather take the guys that are essentially free, who could end up being better for fantasy.  Overall though, a pretty solid looking, young WR trio in DEN.  Maybe there's some upside to Flacco in DEN after all.

Agreed - it’s one of the reasons the Broncos don’t need Antonio Brown.

I really hope they draft a QB early as well.  Only because i want to see another year of teams committing to a high salaried veteran QB, insisting he's an entrenched starter, and benching him quickly in a move everyone but their front office saw coming.

Sanders is looking like a cap cut...you have to like the volume and obv the talent, but have to hope they take a decent QB early...

Sutton hopefully turns out to be a better John Brown that lasts all season. I have all 3 broncos WRS (sutton, hamilton, patrick) on my dynasty team- for any of them to get decent numbers would be a huge score for me.

With Flacco under center :ick: I think DHamilton, out of the slot and on short routes, and with no viable option at the TE position, leads this team fantasy wise at the WR position. :shrug:

I don’t know - pairing a drop-prone WR (7 total last year) that you hope to play a vertical-threat role with a QB who ranks among the worst in the league in deep-passing accuracy seems like a bad idea to me.  At least Keenum was freakishly good throwing deep along the right sideline last year.

I drafted him last year in a keeper league and traded for him early in the season hoping he could be a WR1 but all he ended up being is disappointing.

Flacco should help him catch a few more long balls as he loves throwing them so there is hope. My only problem is he was unstartable last year and I can't keep him on his production/results.

 

I don't know what to do with this guy. So much potential so much wasted talent last year.

Find a Flacco believer and trade him?  You’re right, at least he’ll have a super-aggressive downfield thrower at QB.

He definitely flashed enough that he looks the part of a guy who could put up a lot of yards and catches, but it'll all come down to ADP.  I feel like he'll get overdrafted as a next big thing.   I can see Denver really struggling out of the gate as well, due to all the change

No sutton talk for 3 months.  I am finding myself more and more intrigued by him.

 

Obviously this situation is very difficult to pin down as of today, but I'd say the consensus probably feels he's gonna be the #1 with Flacco starting the season at QB.

 

There's still Tim P and D Hamilton to contend with, but I'll gamble on a potential #1 WR in an offense, even a bad offense, in my deep league.  I don't think Eman Sanders will contribute any meaningful football in 2019 personally.

 

Guys he's currently ranked around:

 

95.  DJax

96.  Eman Sanders

97.  Christian Kirk

98.  C Sutton

112.  Tyrell Williams

113.  Michael Gallup

114.  DaeSean Hamilton

 

If D Hamilton ends up being the #1 here, then it's obvious the pick is D Ham at 114, but if everything holds as I see it.  C Sutton should be the #1 here and should crush these guys he's being drafted around IMO.

 

What say yall?

I know he was a rookie but owning him last year was incredibly frustrating.  Only 2 games with double digit fantasy points in .5 ppr.  5 games under 5 points.  Flacco is no savior.

I dont have a strong or informed outlook on the denver passing offense so I havent bothered trying to tier the wr's.

Suttons appeal to me is he will be a rz target for flacco and people can feel how they want about Flacco but he is the best QB they have had since Manning and he will throw the ball downfield. 

I have a strong interest in royce this year as the player to own on this offense

Case was also a guy playing for another contract on a team that didn't care about him or winning football games toward the end of last season.

 

They traded DT for a 4th round pick, which showed me they didn't even care about winning last year or doing Case any favors, then he lost his main guy in Eman Sanders.

 

The whole team sucked last year.  It looked like he was trying harder to NOT throw picks (and still doing it) then just throw risky passes to help the team win.

 

Once Eman went down though there was no pass catcher worth owning for sure, and that might very well happen again, but today, I want to believe that the #1 receiving option on a team can threaten for 900 yards and 7 TDs which makes him 100% draftable in my deeper leagues.

Agree with you on Royce.  Every mock I've done so far has gotten me Royce for basically free.  Too bad I don't draft in May.  I'm sure that'll change by September.

Courtland Sutton stinks. Move along.

 

Agreed. Seems like he’s just a big body out there.

He caught a couple TDs in his limited role, then got shoehorned into being the #1 and was vastly outperformed by Patrick and Hamilton.

Doesn’t seem like he has any standout attributes that will allow him to consistently win.

This is all before factoring in that he is on a terrible passing offense.

So you're choosing all these guys over him:

 

95.  DJax

96.  Eman Sanders

97.  Christian Kirk

98.  C Sutton

112.  Tyrell Williams

113.  Michael Gallup

114.  DaeSean Hamilton

 

Receivers gotta be drafted this late in the draft too.  So we gotta find the ones that work for us in later rounds.

 

"vastly" outperformed is a real stretch too.  You can argue they were all comparable down the stretch, but no one "vastly" outperformed the others.

Meh.  Kirk for sure.

 

I'm also seeing Metcalf, Marvin Jones, Fitz, Allison, Harry, and Hardman there.  Probably take them all over Sutton.
