3.) Courtland Sutton vs. Cleveland Browns

Courtland Sutton has been a reliable option this year for the Broncos, and he has been part of the reason why Russell Wilson has turned his Broncos’ tenure around for the better so far. Sutton has had just one game under double digit points this season, back in Week 5 against the New York Jets. He has scored a touchdown in every game since Week 6. Plus it helps that the Broncos have beaten teams like the Chiefs, Bills and Vikings in their last three games. However, this game could be a bumpy one for the Denver offense, as they host the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns’ defense has been a threat all season long. In their last three games have they given up a combined 294 yards, or 98 passing yards per game. They are playing defensive football, with doing just enough on offense. It is tough to be confident in the Broncos’ offense which puts Sutton at a disadvantage. If Wilson is not able to be kept clean in the pocket, or even feels pressure more than he should, then that will affect Sutton’s production.
