How did the Broncos wide outs do in the 2019 season? It was challenging with three different quarterbacks, but let’s take a look at their performance.

When it comes to the 2019 Denver Broncos wide receivers, there is not a lot that can be said about them. But that is the case when the team has three different starting quarterbacks during the season and the team trades the number one wide out halfway through the season.

At the opening game of the season, the Broncos had Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton as the one-two tandem. But when it appeared as if the Broncos were no longer in playoff contention, the team decided to trade Sanders to the San Francisco 49ers so that he can go to a contending team.

Once Sanders left, the wide receiver position fell down a few pegs. Having Courtland Sutton as the only receiver who could make the big play made it challenging for the new quarterbacks to find any open targets.

You can also look at the wide receivers minus the two I mentioned above and find out that their stats have been way down. But when you mix multiple starting quarterbacks with limited wide receivers, it can become a mess.

How did the wide receivers do in 2019? I will take a look and grade them on their performance. I did not include Emmanuel Sanders since he was only on the team for half the season.
