Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 16 vs SF (4 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt was able to give the Rams their first 1000-yard receiver since 2007, but unfortunately, he was sidelined with a shoulder injury early in this one. It is the same shoulder that has gave him issues coming into the game. It is unknown whether or not he will play next week, but with nothing on the line, there would be no reason to risk further injury.
2016 Week 15 vs SEA (8 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)
Britt is quietly having his best season as a pro, despite some of the worst quarterback play in the league. The big wide receiver should go over 1000-yards receiving next week and has shown to be the only consistent weapon in the Rams' offense. There was a brief scary moment when Britt came off the field with his arm limp and what looked like an apparent shoulder injury. However, he was able to return shortly thereafter and play the rest of the game. The disappointing part was his replacement, Mike Thomas, dropped a clear touchdown on the very next play that would have gone to Britt if he did not leave the field. Britt ran a very nice deep crossing route for 24-yards on 3rd and 15, but there were not many highlights on the day for the Rams' offense.
2016 Week 14 vs ATL (12 / 7 / 82 / 0 rec)
Just looking at the stat line, it would appear that Kenny Britt had a very respectable game, but the big wide receiver struggled to come up big when needed today. On the first drive of the game, Britt had the ball tip off his hands in the red zone for a Falcon's interception. He was also targeted later in the game on another ball that was intercepted, but that was a poorly thrown ball by his quarterback and not his fault. Britt was targeted 12 times and lead the team in receiving yards again this week. Britt did bring in a 28-yard reception down the left side late in the 3rd quarter and even had another 15-yards tacked on for an unnecessary roughness call for a hit on a defenseless receiver. Britt bounced right back up after the play and did not show any ill effects from the hit. Britt will face a Seattle secondary that was picked apart by Aaron Rogers this week, but he does not have the same caliber quarterback to get him the ball.
2016 Week 13 vs NE (6 / 2 / 67 / 1 rec)
Britt was the only highlight of the day for a Rams team that was totally overmatched by and underperforming Patriots team. The big wide receiver pulled in a 66-yard reception down the right side where he burned the zone coverage corner and caught the ball right in front of the safety who was late getting to the sideline. Britt was tackled on the one but then converted the 1-yard touchdown two plays later. These were the only two catches on the day for Britt with a very inaccurate Jared Goff at quarterback.
2016 Week 12 vs NO (10 / 5 / 52 / 1 rec)
Britt continues to be Goffís favorite target in the early going as the big receiver was targeted 10 times. Britt has a very nice 17-yard catch down the left sideline on the first drive of the game to help set up a touchdown for the early lead. Britt also took a 6-yard quick slant in for a touchdown to give the Rams a 14-7 lead. Things quickly went south in the second half as Goff was constantly pressured and did not look like the same quarterback. Most throws in the second half were hurried and never quite let Britt get out of his break to make a play on the ball. Goff pushed the ball down the field much better than his first start and should have more time to build chemistry with his big receiver for the rest of the year.
2016 Week 11 vs MIA (7 / 5 / 43 / 0 rec)
Britt tied Lance Kendricks for the most targets on the team this week but was unable to do very much with them. Goff was not willing to push the ball down the field and mostly found Britt on quick slants and short 5-yard stop routes. The lone highlight came on a 19-yard catch and run, but the big receiver was held out of the end zone again. Britt should be able to find room to run against a poor Saints' secondary, but he will need his rookie quarterback to get up to speed quickly and play much better next week.
2016 Week 10 vs NYJ (10 / 7 / 109 / 0 rec)
Britt was the most heavily targeted receiver again this week and managed to rack up over 100 yards. The big receiver was held out of the end zone, but so was the rest of the team. Britt's big play came on a 46-yard reception deep down the left side against Darrelle Revis. He was also flagged for delay of game on the same play after spiking the ball into the ground. Britt set up nicely on Revis island today but did not manage to get into the end zone.
2016 Week 9 vs CAR (6 / 4 / 49 / 1 rec)
The big receiver provided the lone fireworks late in the game with a 10-yard strike from Keenum, but never really found room to run today. Britt was expected to have a much bigger game, but the Carolina defense that had been torched all year long found a way to bottle him up. Britt was never able to break away and only managed one catch of more than 10 yards today.
2016 Week 7 vs NYG (8 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt's performances so far this season are inversely correlated with Tavon Austin. When teams commit to stopping Austin, Britt has a good game. Unfortunately for Britt this week Austin had a career-high in receptions and targets. Britt still was targeted eight times this week, but outside of a deep pass over the middle for 27 yards, Britt was unable to get much going. Britt drew a tough matchup in most of this game as he faced up against the former Ram Janoris Jenkins for most of the day.
2016 Week 6 vs DET (8 / 7 / 136 / 2 rec)
We had been waiting this week for most of the season, as Britt finally showed some of that potential that he showed in little spurts this season. Britt showed that he can do it with speed and power by both outrunning his defender and then breaking three tackles on his second touchdown of the game. Kenny Britt was able to make one of the best catches of the year on a diving one-handed 47 yard reception. Britt had a very difficult matchup against Darius Slay, but was able to dominate this matchup and has shown that he has the ability to be matchup proof so far this season.
2016 Week 5 vs BUF (6 / 5 / 75 / 0 rec)
Britt continues to be a big threat on the outside for the Rams, pulling in 5 of 6 targets for a team-high 75 yards. He was unable to find the end zone but did make several big catches to keep drives going. Britt has the ability to stretch the field and is going to need more consistent play from the quarterback position if he is really going to contribute on a weekly basis. Britt has yet to score a touchdown this season but has 75+ yards receiving in three of his five games so if he starts finding the end zone he will be very intriguing from a fantasy perspective.
2016 Week 4 vs ARI (4 / 4 / 82 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt continues to be the number one option in the offense, as was shown by drawing Patrick Peterson in a tough matchup. Britt caught each ball that he was targeted including a 34-yard reception where Marcus Cooper was defending him which seemed to be the trend of this game to throw towards Cooper as he allowed both of Brian Quick's touchdowns as well. Britt is a player who has shown he can be a nice wide receiver between the 20's but so far this season has yet to score a touchdown which is starting to be concerning as they look in different directions when they get into the end zone as he just has one red zone target and only had 4 last season which is surprising for a wide receiver who is 6'3'' 225 lbs.
2016 Week 3 vs TB (6 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt continues to be a consistent target for Case Keenum as he now has 21 targets in his first three games that the Rams have played. This game however Britt took a back seat as he had a tough matchup against Brent Grimes. The Rams were content picking on Vernon Hargreaves most of the day which limited Britt's upside in this game as Grimes at 33 years old is still a Pro Bowl caliber talent. Britt fumbled one of his receptions, which is never something that you want to see from a wide receiver as he was fighting for extra yards Lavonte David was able to come in from behind and strip the ball for the turnover.
2016 Week 2 vs SEA (10 / 6 / 94 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt is quietly emerging as the top receiver for the Rams this season. In his second straight game, he was able to be one of the few bright spots in the Rams offense as he ran past DeShawn Shead along the sideline for a 36-yard reception. Britt has all of the tools to become a great wide receiver, but as teams start realizing that he is the top guy on this team the question will become whether or not he can continue this pace that he is currently on.
2016 Week 1 vs SF (6 / 4 / 67 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt was the one bright spot in this anemic this week, as he looks to be the only consistent deep threat that the Rams have on this roster. He used his size and speed on a slant route to turn up field for a 22 yard gain. He later connected with Keenum on a deep route also for 22 yards. Britt looks as if he can continue to utilize his size and speed combo and is one of the most talented wide receiver on this team which while it is not saying much considering the lack of talent on this team at the wide receiver position.
