WR Start of the Week: Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos (vs. OAK)

Back in Week 1, Sutton converted seven-of-eight targets into a season-high 120 yards against the Oakland Raiders. Despite catching passes from three different (less-than-elite) quarterbacks in 2019, the second-year receiver has eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark (68/1,060/6) in his breakout season.

Kicking off his 2019 campaign with remarkable consistency, Sutton surpassed 50 receiving yards in nine of his first 10 games and the exception was a 40-yard performance in Week 2. While he has been less consistent recently, with 41 yards or fewer in three of his past five games, Sutton has had his first two games of double-digit targets in back-to-back weeks entering the season finale.

Against a shaky pass defense that has surrendered the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts this season, Sutton has the potential for another big game, assuming his target share remains high.

WR Sit of the Week: Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings (vs. CHI)

Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but this will be Thielen’s third game back from an extended absence due to his hamstring injury. One week after a 3/27 performance against the Chargers, Thielen put up a goose egg against the Packers on Monday Night Football.

Given the fact that the Vikings have the No. 6 seed sewn up, with no chance to improve upon it, it’s possible that Thielen doesn’t play a full game in Week 17. In his first matchup against the Bears, who have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers this season, Thielen had two receptions for only six scoreless yards on six targets.

[Update: There is the potential for the team to rest many of its starters, as ESPN’s Courtney Cronin notes, so even if Thielen is active, there’s no guarantee he plays a full game.]
