Sutton leads all NFL pass catchers in air yards, but will he still play an alpha receiver role for the Broncos once Jerry Jeudy returns from a high-ankle sprain? Week 8 seems like a probable return date for Jeudy, so Sutton has at least one more week left as the undisputed boss of the Denver WR corps. Sutton has racked up 25 targets over the Broncos' last two games and has 15-214-2 over that span. He has a tricky matchup this week against Browns CB Denzel Ward, but as solid as Ward is, he can't be considered a true lockdown cover man yet. Consider Sutton a midrange WR2 this week.
