Broncos WR Courtland Sutton suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That obviously ends Sutton's season. It also likely means a starting spot going forward for Tim Patrick, who led Broncos wideouts in snaps at Pittsburgh. Jerry Jeudy's target ceiling climbs as well, but he'll be playing with backup QB Jeff Driskel for the next 2-6 weeks. Perhaps that's not truly a downgrade from Drew Lock (AC joint sprain), but this promises to be a volatile pass offense going forward. Sutton might be worth a price check on the buyer's market for dynasty owners. He'll be 25 when the 2021 season begins.
Update: Sutton also reportedly tore the MCL in the same knee. We'll see about his recovery in the offseason.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is feared to have suffered a "significant" knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. He's undergoing an MRI. Sutton's absence would elevate rookie WR Jerry Jeudy to the top of the depth chart. Fellow rookie WR K.J. Hamler debuted in Week 2 and caught 3 of 7 targets for 48 yards while playing 62% of the offensive snaps. Denver also has WRs Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton. Of course, QB Drew Lock's shoulder injury hurts the upside on all of these guys.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Steelers with a knee injury and cramping. We'll see about the severity of the knee. Sutton, of course, entered this game dealing with a shoulder injury.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He was limited in practice all week and a game-time decision, so it’s safe to say he’s still not at 100%. That, plus the tough matchup, makes Sutton just a WR3 in fantasy lineups today.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (shoulder) has a "good chance" to play against the Steelers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But the team wants to work him out pregame to make sure his ailment has healed enough," Rapoport adds. We'll get Sutton's official status by noon ET today. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. HC Vic Fangio labeled him a game-time decision on Friday. We’ll get his game status by noon ET on Sunday. Between the shoulder and a difficult matchup, Sutton will be just a WR3 if active.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton was limited for the 2nd straight day Thursday with his shoulder injury. We'd love to see Sutton get back to full workouts, but that might not be realistic at any point as he manages his AC joint sprain. We'll see about Sutton's status for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (shoulder) put in a limited practice Wednesday. That's encouraging. He missed the final 2 practices last week -- Friday and Saturday -- and then sat out the Monday-night opener after suffering an AC joint sprain in practice. This participation points to Sutton trending toward returning for Sunday's game against the Steelers. We'll track his status throughout the week.
Broncos WRs Courtland Sutton (shoulder) and K.J. Hamler (hamstring) are inactive for tonight's game against the Titans. That leaves Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton as Denver's top 3 WRs. TE Noah Fant should also get a target boost with Sutton out.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is looking like "a long shot to play" against the Titans tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's officially questionable after suffering a sprained AC joint in practice. If you've been waiting on him, make sure you grab a Monday-night alternative. Tim Patrick figures to start in Sutton's place if he can't go. DaeSean Hamilton is another option, especially with rookie K.J. Hamler also questionable.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Titans. After hurting that right shoulder on Thursday, he didn't practice on Friday or Saturday. So consider him on the wrong side of 50/50. With the late kickoff, Sutton should be on fantasy benches. His absence would mean more targets for WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Noah Fant. Broncos rookie WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) is also listed as questionable after a limited week of practices.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton will not practice on Friday after spraining the AC joint in his right shoulder on Thursday, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. "But there is hope that he will be limited Saturday," Palmer adds. "Still considered day to day." We'll get another update on Sutton tomorrow, but fantasy owners should obviously have a backup plan in place. Sutton will carry elevated risk even if he plays against the Titans on Monday night.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton sustained a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder in practice Thursday, according to Mike Klis of 9News. Sutton is reportedly questionable for Monday night's game against the Titans. That's certainly better than it could have been. But the late kickoff -- the final of Week 1 -- probably means you'll need to use another WR in your lineups.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton suffered an apparent right shoulder injury in Thursday's practice. "Sutton was making outstretched one handed catch vs air with left hand when he came down awkwardly on his right hand. He came up holding his right shoulder," insider Mike Klis tweets. We'll look for updates on the situation -- but Sutton would obviously be a huge loss for this Broncos passing game. His absence would free up more targets for WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Noah Fant.
The Broncos selected Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy with the 15th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. We learned on Wednesday that Jeudy had surgery in the spring of 2018 to repair a torn meniscus. He didn’t miss a single game over the past 2 seasons, but some teams are reportedly concerned about arthritis developing down the road. The Broncos apparently aren’t one of those teams. A route-running savant, Jeudy has drawn comparisons ranging from Keenan Allen to Stefon Diggs to Odell Beckham. He broke out in 2018, leading a loaded ‘Bama squad with 68 catches, 1,315 yards and 14 TDs and becoming just the 8th WR to win the Biletnikoff Award as a freshman or sophomore. Jeudy’s numbers took a slight step back this past year, but he still finished inside the top 25 in receptions, receiving yards and TDs. His 3.3 yards per route run ranked 4th among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects. Jeudy is on the smallish side at 6’1 and 193 pounds, tested as just a 22nd percentile athlete and didn’t show much in contested situations in college. But none of that stopped him from producing at Alabama — and we’re not expecting those things to be problems in the NFL. He should immediately slide into Denver’s starting lineup alongside WR Courtland Sutton and has a chance to be a big 2020 fantasy factor.
Snow is expected throughout today's Broncos-Chiefs game. There are already multiple inches of snow on the field. We're not adjusting projections for this game because there's no evidence that snow impacts scoring. But you can certainly use the weather as a tiebreaker between 2 closely ranked players.
Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) is expected to be activated from the IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie has taken the majority of the 1st-team reps in practice this week and seems to be in line to make his debut against the Chargers on Sunday. Lock struggled to a 60.8% completion rate and 5.0 yards per attempt this preseason. Pro Football Focus ranked him 35th in their preseason passing grades among 39 qualifying QBs. Lock is a bottom-barrel QB2 for Week 13. We'll see if he's an upgrade over QB Brandon Allen for Denver's pass-catchers.
