Scouting report

CLE WR Kenny Britt - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. New York Jets

The Browns' receiving corps has been a bit of a mess this season. A running back leads them in yards with a tight end in second. Kenny Britt, who is the team's No. 1 receiver, is fourth on the team in yards with just 121 through four games. He's also been inefficient, catching 8-of-23 targets.

Britt is probably your most reliable option at receiver for the Browns, but that's not saying much. He gets a favorable matchup this week against the Jets, but it's hard to trust him considering his output this season. He's a low-end WR4, at best.

CLE WR Kenny Britt - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Kenny Britt had 2 catches in his first two games combined, but had a decent outing last week against the Colts, recording a 38-yard catch along with a score, but he only caught 3-of-10 targets.

Britt will likely continue to be the team's No. 1 wideout simply because there aren't many better options, but he's been very unreliable in 2017. Part of it is his fault, and another part is the struggling QB play of rookie DeShone Kizer.

He gets a decent matchup this week against the Bengals, but he's not much more than a WR4 option.

CLE WR Kenny Britt - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Indianapolis Colts

Kenny Britt has been one of the worst free agent signings of 2017. After being a 1,000-yard receiver in 2016, he's been awful in 2017. Not only are his stats bad, 2 receptions for 15 yards through two games, but the film shows him not even trying on most of his routes.

He gets a favorable matchup this week, but why would you want to start someone in fantasy who has 1 reception in each of the first two games? There's really no reason to trust Britt, and it's best to just avoid him.

CLE WR Kenny Britt - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Baltimore Ravens

Kenny Britt finished last week with just 1 catch for 13 yards on 3 targets. He also had one critical drop that drew the ire of coach Hue Jackson, who said Britt could be in danger of losing his starting role in the offense.

The Browns don't really have anyone else to go to, but it's certainly not good news that Britt could be in the doghouse after just one week. Even if he's fine in Week 2, he doesn't particularly have a good matchup, as the Ravens were tough against the pass in Week 1. Britt should be viewed as a WR4 with limited upside.

CLE WR Kenny Britt - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Kenny Britt comes to the Browns after a 1,000-yard season with the Rams. He's the No. 1 WR in the offense and should be a nice veteran presence at receiver for rookie DeShone Kizer in his first NFL start.

He doesn't get a great matchup this week, as the Steelers were pretty tough against wideouts last season, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to the position. The Steelers only gave up 9 receiving TDs to wideouts in 2016, the second-fewest in the league.

Britt could end up having a decent season in Cleveland, but Week 1 could be a struggle. He should be viewed as a WR3/WR4 against Pittsburgh.

CLE WR Kenny Britt - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Kenny Britt managed to have a 1,000-yard season despite having Case Keenum and Jared Goff as his quarterbacks (he also played in 15 games). He headed to Cleveland this offseason where he’ll replace Terrelle Pryor as the top receiving threat in the offense.

The most impressive part about Britt last year was just how consistent he was. Excluding Week 15, when he left early with an injury, Britt had at least four receptions or 40 yards in every game. While those numbers don’t jump out, it’s good production from someone who can be the WR3 or WR4 on your fantasy squadron.

Fantasy Downside

Not often do you see a player in his eighth season set career-highs, so Britt will have to prove last year wasn’t a fluke. He could have a hard time doing so in the Browns’ offense, which is run-heavy and features one of the worst quarterback groups in the league.

2017 Bottom Line

Britt isn’t a sexy pick, but he could end up being a late-round steal. He was a surprise standout player just a year ago, and if he’s able to maintain a similar level of success, he could be an every-week starter, depending on your league settings.

LA WR Kenny Britt - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Arizona
Kenny Britt caught one of four targets for 15 yards in the Rams' Week 16 loss to the 49ers. He left the game in the third quarter after aggravating an existing shoulder injury, which explains why he didn't have a bigger day. Still, he went over 1,000 yards receiving for the year and was quietly one of the Rams' best players this season. Britt currently ranks as our WR39 for Week 17 but didn't practice earlier this week and might not suit up on Sunday. If he's held out, Tavon Austin and Brian Quick would benefit from Britt's absence, but neither would be on the fantasy radar.
