Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos @ Baltimore Ravens
DraftKings Price: $3,500
An intriguing option if you want to dive deep for a WR3 this week is Denver Broncos rookie Courtland Sutton. While Sutton’s stats don’t look great in the box score having caught only 3-of-11 targets for 54 yards, his play on the field has actually been much better than that. Sutton was robbed of his first career TD last week as they ruled he stepped out of bounds.
Sutton has run as the clear WR3 on the Broncos offense this season and his 11 targets are actually only 4 less than Emmanuel Sanders. Sutton’s 81.82% snap share last week also tied for second on the team with Demaryius Thomas. While Thomas has seen double digit targets each week this season, he has been a complete liability with his opportunities. Thomas ranks 13th amongst wideouts with a 90.5% catchable target rate but leads all wideouts with 4 drops this season per PlayerProfiler.com.
This week, Sutton and the Broncos will get a road matchup against a Ravens defense that is still reeling after allowing 4 total TD’s to Bengals wideouts last week. Sutton is a good bet to get in the end zone officially for the first time in his career and inches closer to a full time role with every Demaryius Thomas dropped pass.
