Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Sutton leads all NFL pass catchers in air yards, but will he still play an alpha receiver role for the Broncos once Jerry Jeudy returns from a high-ankle sprain? Week 8 seems like a probable return date for Jeudy, so Sutton has at least one more week left as the undisputed boss of the Denver WR corps. Sutton has racked up 25 targets over the Broncos' last two games and has 15-214-2 over that span. He has a tricky matchup this week against Browns CB Denzel Ward, but as solid as Ward is, he can't be considered a true lockdown cover man yet. Consider Sutton a midrange WR2 this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Smith obviously has the talent to be a consistent fantasy asset, but he's going to be inconsistent each week due to the QB play. With Hurts struggling to move the offense as a passer, Smith's fantasy stock is going to live and die by what version of Hurts we see on the field any given week. There are going to be some games where Hurts puts together a solid outing - like in week four against Kansas City - and that is going to mean a big performance from Smith as this team's WR1. However, we're going to have to be prepared for the fact that Hurts may only throw for 115 yards like he did in week six against the Bucs and Smith could disappoint. Moving forward, Smith should remain in starting lineups. However, we simply have to view him as a mid-range/low-end WR3 every single week due to his QB. He comes with a massive range of outcomes every single game and there's simply no predicting what we're going to get out of him.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Sutton has posted back-to-back Top-12 finishes among wide receivers and he should be a great WR2 candidate against a Browns D that is 28th against fantasy wide receivers.Smith had only 2 receptions for 31 yards last week, he looks to bounce back against a Raiders D that is 3rd against fantasy wide receivers. Smith is more of a WR3 this week in a tough road matchup.
