Receiving skills put him in play as RB2. and TE1 Could rebound after disappointing last week, but not a confident start
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Samuels may not have gotten in the end zone last week, but he did give fantasy owners 18 touches and over 90 yards from scrimmage. That is about what they can expect this week in another great matchup versus the Patriots so make sure to get him in your starting lineup.Sutton hasn't done much for the Broncos since Demaryius Thomas left, but with Emmanuel Sanders now out too, Sutton is far and away the best receiver on the team and should command plenty of targets. He ought to be started in nearly every league as a result.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Samuels operated as the clear lead back in the absence of James Conner last week, finishing with 18 touches for 92 yards - and his day would have likely been even better if Ben Roethlisberger had not missed most of the second half with a rib injury. Samuels did have a touchdown vultured by Stevan Ridley, but will nonetheless be a solid RB2 (or high-end TE1) this week if Conner misses another game. New England-Pittsburgh projects to be a back-and-forth high-scoring affair, so you'll want to start most of the key skill position players in this contest.With no more than seven targets in any game this season, Sutton has not seen the massive target boost that many fantasy owners were hoping for when Denver traded Demaryius Thomas -- or even when Emmanuel Sanders was recently lost for the season. Sutton gets a matchup upgrade from the fact that the Browns' top corner Denzel Ward will be out this week, but he is still just a low-end WR3 based on his lack of heavy involvement in the offense to date. It is entirely possible that DaeSean Hamilton and/or Tim Patrick out-target him again this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Have the Broncos made a mistake by trading away Demaryius Thomas? While I don't think so (they weren't going anywhere and he was going to be released after this year), it's a real question when it comes to handing Sutton the torch. Since Thomas left, he's totaled just 13 receptions for 248 yards and one touchdown in the five games, including a pathetic two-catch, 14-yard performance against the 49ers last week. The Browns are likely to get Denzel Ward back from his concussion this week, and he's the one who'd be covering Sutton. While shadowing No. 1 receivers, Ward has allowed just a 70.0 QB Rating in his coverage this year, which includes just a 53 percent catch-rate. Combining that with Sutton's sub-par 46.2 percent catch-rate and you don't exactly have a recipe for success. With just one game that's netted more than three receptions, it's hard to rely on Sutton in this matchup. He's always a threat for a touchdown, but so are a lot of receivers. What's the difference between him and Mike Williams right now? Sutton plays more snaps but hasn't delivered the touchdowns that Williams has. Consider Sutton a mediocre WR4 this week and not one you should feel the need to play.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Samuels should be starting again this week and he had 92 yards from scrimmage last week. That easily puts him in the TE1 discussion this week for leagues that allow him to be used at tight end. He is a RB3 / flex option at running back. The Browns are just 23rd against fantasy wide receivers, Sutton is a WR3 this week.
