Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton tore his ACL Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Yet another serious injury for fantasy managers to navigate from Week 2. This is a huge blow to the Broncos and Sutton, both of whom were looking to make noise this season. With Sutton injured, Jerry Jeudy and Noah Fant will have to carry the Broncos passing game. This also likely will mean more work for Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay as the ground game becomes a greater emphasis, especially with Drew Lock also set to miss time.
