Through two games with Lock, it hasn't been bad for Sutton, though it hasn't been great, either. After catching 4-of-5 passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns in his first start, he saw a solid seven targets, but netted just five catches for 34 scoreless yards. The fact that Lock has been competent is the best news, as the numbers should follow. The Chiefs have done a great job with perimeter wide receivers this year, as both Charvarius Ward and Bashaud Breeland have been solid. The duo has combined to allow just 56-of-115 passing for 894 yards and four touchdowns in their coverage, which is a 48.7 percent catch-rate, 7.77 yards per target, and a touchdown every 28.8 targets. Would you believe they've allowed just eight top-30 wide receiver performances on the season? Fortunately, Sutton was one of them when he hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 87 yards, though that was when Emmanuel Sanders was still on the team. You're starting Sutton as a middling WR2 in this matchup but understand it hasn't been a kind matchup to many receivers.It was only a matter of time before the tough matchups affected Brown's fantasy output, and though he's failed to top 40 yards in each of the last three games, he had touchdowns to carry him through in the first two. The matchup in Week 15 doesn't get much easier. Over the last five weeks against the Steelers, there has not been a WR1/WR2/WR3/TE1 combo to combine for 40 PPR points. In fact, each of the last four teams have failed to combine for more than 31.1 PPR points. It's worth noting that the Bills offense is very concentrated to Brown and Beasley, which helps, but this matchup is not for those seeking upside. Brown will see a lot of Steven Nelson in this matchup, a cornerback who's been rejuvenated by the relocation to the Steelers. On the year, he's allowed just 26-of-49 passing for 359 yards and one touchdown in his coverage. The good news is that he has allowed seven 20-plus-yard passing plays, so Brown may be able to get loose deep. There have only been seven wide receivers who've finished better than WR28 against the Steelers, and two of them came before Minkah Fitzpatrick in Weeks 1 and 2. Brown is really tough to bench considering how much he's overcome this year, but dropping expectations to a high-end WR3 makes sense here.

The Chiefs are 2nd against fantasy wide receivers, but Sutton has had a good enough year to warrant WR2 status in a tough road matchup.The Steelers are 12th against fantasy wide receivers, Brown is a low-upside WR3 on the road this week.
