Game status Update: Sutton is ACTIVE on Sunday.
Game day Update: Sutton has been dealing with an illness this week but is expected to play on Sunday. He will see how he feels during pregame warmups, but barring any setbacks should be good to go.

As if the Denver Broncos offense needed any more problems, this week, all of their top three wide receivers are on the injury report. For Courtland Sutton, who’s been filling in as the No. 1 wideout with Jerry Jeudy on the shelf, it’s an illness that has him listed as questionable this week.
It’s rare that a player will miss a game for a non-COVID illness, but Sutton came down with his bug late in the week, missing Friday’s practice. If he’s in your fantasy football lineup plans this week, you’ll have to check on his status Sunday morning.
The Broncos travel to face the Baltimore Ravens with a 1 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday.
Fantasy football implications
Sutton had 75 yards on six catches last week against the Panthers, closely mirroring his 80-yard performance the week before. He hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 4.
KJ Hamler is out, and while Jeudy is closer to returning, Friday was the first time he’s practiced since Week 10. If both Jeudy and Sutton sit this week, that would leave some combination of Kendall Hinton, Jalen Virgil, and Brandon Johnson to handle receiving duties for the Broncos.
