The Denver Broncos struggled to produce on offense during the 2019 season. That didn’t stop Courtland Sutton from taking the next step in his development and ultimately earning a spot in the Pro Bowl.
Even despite having to catch passes from Joe Flacco for much of the 2019 season, Sutton finished with 72 catches, 1,112 yards, and six touchdowns. He made the second-year leap the Broncos needed to see in order to solidify his standing as the clear cut No. 1 option in their offense.
It wasn’t until early December that Drew Lock made his debut and the team finished with a 4-1 record in his five starts. Entering the 2020 season, there is intrigue surrounding the Broncos’ offense both because of the flashes of potential Lock displayed, along with their offseason moves.
Ther emphasis on adding talent on offense for the Broncos started with the signing of Melvin Gordon in free agency and it didn’t stop there. Denver then used the 2020 NFL Draft to select Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler along with Albert Okwuegbunam.
Having more talent in the offense will help Sutton to face easier conditions throughout games. Opposing teams will not be able to focus nearly as much exclusively on him as they were able to last season without risking Jeudy or Hamler making them pay.
With that being said, let’s take a look at predictions for Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton in the 2020 NFL season.
