You probably don't need a reminder about Derrick Henry's unbelievable Week 14 performance, but it is worth noting that Lewis was already losing work to him before that. At this point, he is becoming an afterthought and ought to be left on your bench.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
Derrick Henry's late season emergence is bad news for Lewis' fantasy value. Even prior to Henry's huge Week 14 performance, Lewis' touches were on a downward trajectory after peaking at midseason. Lewis does get a favorable matchup this week with a Giants defense that allows the ninth-most fantasy points to RBs, but he's still just a risky RB3/flex option.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.

Cannot confidently start him at this important point of the seasonCould rebound after disappointing last week, but not a confident start

 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.

The Giants are 22nd against fantasy running backs, but Lewis is probably going to take a backseat to RB Derrick Henry coming off that monster TNF game. Lewis is a low-upside flex option this week. The Browns are just 23rd against fantasy wide receivers, Sutton is a WR3 this week.
