|After a string of inconsistent performances over the first year and a half of his career, Britt finished the 2010 season strongly, recording 15 receptions for 302 yards and 2 touchdowns over his final three games and igniting hope that he was ready to put together a breakout performance in his third year in the league in 2011. That seemed to be happening with Britt posting 14 receptions for 271 yards and three touchdowns in his first two games of 2011 before he suffered tears to his ACL and MCL that ended his season in Week 3. Britt has clearly exhibited enough talent to be an upper tier receiver in the league but injuries, maturity, and off-field issues have prevented him from reaching his potential. In 2012, Britt figures to be the Titans number one wide receiver but he carries enormous risk from a fantasy perspective. The Titans quarterback situation is in flux, Britt had to undergo a second knee operation in May and his off the field issues are too numerous to list. Did we mention that Nate Washington is coming off a career season, the team used its 1st round pick on Kendall Wright and tight end Jared Cook was lights out over the final three games of last season?
Comment: Three knee surgeries for Britt in the last year - two on his right knee and one on his left. The Titans are hopeful he can ready for Week 1 of this season.
| Rams lose Brian Quick for rest of season -- Mon Oct 27 2:10 pm --|
Torn rotator cuff; team also loses LT Jake Long with ACL
|The St. Louis Rams Monday morning that LT Jake Long will miss the rest of the season after tearing his right ACL Sunday and will likely lose WR Brian Quick to a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff.
Long’s injury is the same one, to the same knee, that ended his 2013 season. He is the second Rams player to re-tear an ACL; quarterback Sam Bradford did the same thing. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: The Rams have been one of the most snake-bitten teams in recent years in regards to injuries. Kenny Britt will most likely take over lead-receiver duties and Stedman Bailey will probably join him as the other starting receiver, although Jared Cook has been Austin Davis' favorite target for most of the year. No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will most likely slide over from left guard to play his college position in order to replace Long.
|Britt making strong impression with Rams -- Mon Aug 4 4:05 pm --|
Quick, Bailey also standing out
|There is no shortage of receivers making plays all over the field at camp, including several with great size. Kenny Britt has people around the team pinching themselves with what he is doing on the field and off, and there is a very strong buzz around third-year receiver Brian Quick and second-year receiver Stedman Bailey. If a few of them can keep it up, this offense has the potential to make significant strides.
"A few of them really look like they are for real," said one member of the organization. "If they are, then that's a major game-changer." (CBS Sports)|
FF Today's Take: Once again, Britt is worth gambling on in fantasy, although his 14th-round ADP is much more palatable than it has been in recent years. Quick has been long on potential since getting drafted in 2012 and his size-speed combination makes him intriguing if he can lock down a starting spot. Bailey will miss the first four games of the season due to suspension, but could enjoy some fantasy value late in the second half if Britt or Quick fails to impress or get injured.
