WR - DEN
Courtland Sutton is reportedly still "holding back a little" in camp as he continues to work his way back from last year's torn ACL injury.
"He worked in the offseason, but all his work in the offseason was on air," Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said. "Now you put the defenders out there and it's a totally different ball game... I see a little hesitancy." This will be a situation to continue to monitor as training camp moves along. It is sounding like he might be on track to be a little limited early in the season.
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is cleared to start training camp after tearing his ACL last season, but the team will monitor his workload to begin camp, per Mike Klis of 9News.
The only knock on Sutton's fantasy value is the Broncos lack of talent at QB. Sutton broke out in 2019 with 1112 and six touchdowns but missed almost all of last season after tearing his ACL. There are many mouths to feed in Denver, with Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant and Tim Parick all showing flashes of good play. However, Sutton has shown to be the best of the bunch until Jeudy cleans up his dropped passes. He should act as a security blanket for whichever QB wins the job in Denver. He's an intriguing pick at his current ADP of WR33.
Jeff Legwold writes the Broncos expect WR Courtland Sutton to be good to go for the start of the 2021 season and are thrilled to have him back.
Sutton is returning from a torn-ACL he suffered early in the 2020 season. He is expected to be on a pitch-count of sorts throughout training camp, but should be ready to give the Broncos' passing game a big jolt once it's game time. The former Mustang had a breakout sophomore campaign when he racked up 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. The quarterback situation is not ideal, but fantasy managers should take solace in the fact that either Drew Lock will take a step forward and hold off Teddy Bridgewater or he won't and Bridgewater will start. In Carolina, Bridgewater was able to support two top-24 wide receivers. Either way, the Broncos' offense should have better quarterback play than it did in 2020. Sutton has shown the capability to be an alpha receiver, but he is now competing for targets with another elite prospect in Jerry Jeudy. He's currently ranked as the WR31, which feels like a nice spot for fantasy managers. There's upside for Sutton to be a WR2 in 2021, but with an offense that is likely aiming to limit their passing attempts, volume may be an issue for him reaching that ceiling.
Broncos HC Vic Fangio says that Broncos WR Courtland Sutton won't begin training camp on the PUP list
This is great news for Broncos fans. Sutton is a very talented WR who only appeared in one game during the 2020 season due to injury. He has rehabbed and looks to be near full health for training camp. Sutton has looked good when he's on the field and could be a nice draft day value at WR29 in half-PPR.
Courtland Sutton said Monday that the "game plan" is for him to be ready for training camp.
“That’s the game plan. That’s the game plan," Sutton said when asked if he'll be ready for training camp. Sutton tore his ACL in week 2 last season and began running routes in March.
