WR Courtland Sutton, Denver
I think Sutton is going to be a superstar WR…an NFL true #1 WR. However, he lands with a team which already possesses Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders – and a QB we all don’t really trust (Keenum). I want Sutton…a lot. However, I am willing to watch him get taken 1st-round of the DRD and do little in terms of production in 2018, and then I’ll swoop in later this season to trade off some hoax-of-the-moment for Sutton…doing so at .50-.70 on today’s dollar.
I love Sutton, but I am ready to wait. I want Sutton for 2019+, and I am willing to gamble I can acquire him cheaper even if he breaks out a little in 2018 and his value spikes faster than I expected.
I wouldn’t be shocked if Denver now traded or even cut Demaryius Thomas…he’s $12M to play this final year of his deal, or a $4M hit to cut. Emmanuel Sanders has the same type of economics in 2019. Sutton is going to be a starter sooner-rather-than-later, but I’m not going to kill myself to take him if I can trade a high rookie pick and get other stuff I already know is great.
Plus, I don’t trust Vance Joseph at all. He’s the next offense-killing, bust head coach a la John Fox, Jeff Fisher, Gus Bradley, et al.
