Courtland Sutton turned in his best statistical performance since October last week. What does that mean for his Week 18 outlook against the Kansas City Chiefs?
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos WR Courtland Sutton
It’s sad that 60 receiving yards stands as Sutton’s high mark since Week 7, but that’s the truth. And he’ll probably have a hard time reaching that number again with Jerry Jeudy, who didn’t play in Week 17, back in the fold this week. From Week 8 through Week 16, with Jeudy active, Sutton never surpassed 40 yards and didn’t score in any game. That includes a 2-15-0 line against the Chiefs in Week 13. On the bright side, Sutton did come away from last week’s game with a 44-yard play, his longest since Week 2, and the Chiefs have allowed the fourth-most 40-yard pass plays in the NFL, including multiple ones last week in Cincinnati. With Drew Lock’s cannon arm, such a big play is possible here. It just seems unlikely because, again, Sutton has yet to make any such plays while Jeudy is also on the field.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sutton is a WR 4/5 in Week 18. Sit him.
