Friday update: Sutton has been formally ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.

Thursday update: Sutton did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. This note is mostly procedural, as Sutton is on track to miss this week.

Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said that wide receiver Courtland Sutton was “not looking good” for Sunday’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Sutton sustained a hamstring injury in the Broncos’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

Fantasy football implications for Week 14

This is already going to be a tough matchup for the Broncos’ struggling offense, but without their top receiver available, it may become a lot more difficult. Sutton has 688 receiving yards this year over 52 receptions and just one touchdown.

In his absence, Jerry Jeudy and Kendall Hinton can expect to see an increase in targets, and tight end Greg Dulcich may have another big weekend after last week’s 85-yard game. Dulcich has been able to step up and make an impact on the Broncos’ offense in a few games this year, and Sutton’s absence may lead to more of that.
