2018 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 40th pick in the draft, Sutton has a promising future, but enters the year as at best the Broncos' No. 3 target behind stalwarts Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. At 6-3, 218, and with a large catch radius, Sutton profiles as a good red-zone target - he scored 22 TDs his final two seasons in college - but his 4.54 40 speed is merely average for even a big receiver. GM John Elway believes Sutton can take over as the team's No. 1 eventually, but barring an injury to Thomas and Sanders, the rookie likely have to wait at least another year. Read Past Outlooks

Sutton (quad) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday night's game against the Browns after practicing fully Thursday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
ANALYSIS
After being listed as a non-participant Tuesday and limited Wednesday, Sutton graduated to a full session Thursday, which sets the stage for him to remain in the starting lineup in Week 15. In his first game after the Broncos lost Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) for the season, Sutton was on the field for 69 percent of the team's snaps on offense, en route to catching two of his six targets for 14 yards this past Sunday against the 49ers. Assuming no issues with his quad this weekend, Sutton has a chance to bounce back against a Cleveland defense (minus starting cornerback Denzel Ward) that has allowed an average of 277.9 yards in the air to date. Only Kansas City has allowed more.
