2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
At 6'3", 220 lbs, Courtland Sutton is one of the few true potential "X" receivers coming out of a weak 2017 draft class at wide receiver. Sutton was considered by many to be among the top three receivers in the class and he was selected as such, as the third receiver off the board to the Broncos with the eighth pick of the second round.

What's unfortunate is that, while the Broncos passing game was well below average in 2017, Sutton is stepping into a situation, at least as a rookie, where he doesn't seem to have a clear path to significant playing time. With veterans Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders entrenched as the team's outside options on most passing downs, Sutton would simply need to be so spectacular in training camp and throughout the preseason that the coaching staff has no other option than to move Thomas or Sanders to the slot to get Sutton on the field as Sutton is simply not built for, and doesn't project to play inside.

The upside for Sutton, in 2018, is that Sanders has been dealing with an ankle injury and his play was way down in 2017. If he's still struggling to generate separation from defenders, the team may opt to give Sutton some additional playing time down the stretch this season, especially with both Thomas and Sanders' contracts coming up for renewal. Still, Sutton doesn't project to have much of a target share this season as things currently stand, so he should probably be avoided in most formats, with the obvious exception of dynasty leagues as he figures to assume a starting role as early as 2019.

Injury DaeSean Hamilton expected to fill slot role
Denver forced to go with unproven wideouts after Sanders injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 6, 11:45 am

Denver Broncos
Fourth-round rookie draft pick DaeSean Hamilton has only five catches after missing several weeks with a knee injury. He’ll now be featured in the slot along with River Cracraft, an undrafted player who was promoted from Denver’s practice squad. He has just four game appearances and no catches. Tim Patrick, another undrafted first-year player off the practice squad, is also likely to receive increased targets. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: The Denver depth chart at wide receiver features a host of unproven players with Courtland Sutton at the top. Hamilton is worthy of a flier in deeper leagues and should be in starting lineup this week against the 49ers. San Francisco has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Injury Emmanuel Sanders tears Achilles in practice
Injury ends Broncos WR's season
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Dec 5, 2:43 pm

Denver Broncos
Adam Schefter on Twitter: "Broncos believe that WR Emmanuel Sanders tore his Achilles during practice today, per source. Team usually can tell right away, but it will conduct tests on Sanders to confirm. But early belief is torn Achilles." (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: What a terrible end to the veteran WR's season. Courtland Sutton takes over as the Broncos No. 1 WR, but we could see more Matt LaCosse and even DeVontae Booker lining up as an extra WR in th eslot.

Injury Emmanuel Sanders limited Thursday
Heel issue

Emmanuel Sanders limited with heel. (Mike Klis on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is noteworthy only because he didn't begin the week on the injury report. While this may simply be a case of the Broncos exercising extreme caution with some soreness, mid-week additions to the injury report are rarely ever a good thing. Stay tuned. If he's good to go, he could be a top-10 WR play against the woeful Bengals defense. If he can't play, Courtland Sutton would be set up to have a monster day.

Demaryius Thomas traded to Texans
Veteran WR adds another weapon to Houston arsenal
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 30, 1:20 pm

Houston Texans
Mike Klis on Twitter: "Can confirm the Broncos are trading Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans, source tells 9News. Convenient as trades go as DT gets to spend Saturday and Sunday in Denver. Texans play Broncos on Sunday at Mile High. #9sports" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This certainly bodes well for the prospects of Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders on the Broncos side, and could dent the upside of Keke Coutee a bit. Thomas also picks up a little more value in the long term for 2018.

Patriots in the market for Demaryius Thomas?
Broncos WR drafted by New England OC in 2010
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 29, 9:45 pm

Denver Broncos
Multiple league sources confirm the Patriots have been active on the trade front for weeks. That’s not abnormal for them. One name that’s been discussed is Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas. Thomas was drafted by Pats OC Josh McDaniels when he was HC at Denver. (Mike Girardi on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thomas has been the subject of trade rumors for at least a few weeks. It's unclear if the Patriots would be eyeing an upgrade on Chris Hogan or Josh Gordon insurance, as it's hard to see the current version of Thomas being an upgrade for New England. In the event Thomas gets traded before Tuesday's 4 pm ET deadline, rookie Courtland Sutton would almost certainly become an immediate high-upside WR3 in most 12-team leagues.
