News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 17): Britt had his best game in years against the Lions, with two scores and many long plays to make the Rams pass offense look viable for the first time in the Jeff Fisher era. Britt has been consistent with a high floor already this year, now he showed his ceiling heading into a matchup with the Giants in London.
Week 7: vs New York Giants
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Case Keenum threw the ball well at Detroit, posting 27/32 for 321 yards, three TDs and one interception, while taking one sack for -10 yards. Kenny Britt continues to be the most consistent receiver on the team, with eight targets for 7/136/2 to his credit last weekend, and 40 for 30/492/2 receiving to date. Tavon Austin (four targets for 3/24/0 receiving, with three rushes for two yards at Detroit) has actually seen more targets, 49, but does much less with them 26/242/1 receiving. Brian Quick (five targets for 5/61/0 receiving last weekend), Todd Gurley (four for 4/39/0) and Lance Kendricks (eight for 5/34/1) were the other heavily-involved receivers during last week's game. The Giants' pass defense is ranked 22nd in the NFL averaging 266.8 net passing yards allowed per game, with six passing scores given out vs. a league worst two interceptions, and a league-worst six sacks, generated so far. Joe Flacco touched this group for 26/48 yielding 293 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -14 yards last week; two games ago Aaron Rodgers was not sacked at all on his way to 23/45 for 259 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown. From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), New York has averaged 17.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (ninth-least in the NFL); and 24.6 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (13th-most); with 5.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (eighth-least). This is a neutral matchup for the home-team Rams - although please note that this game starts at 9:30 AM Eastern due to being held in Twickenham, South-West London.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
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.
Latest NewsRams | Kenny Britt having career year (Mon Oct 17, 02:56 PM) - Los Angeles Rams WR Kenny Britt is on pace for 1,312 receiving yards in 2016. His current career high is 775 yards. Through six games this year Britt has managed 30 catches for 492 yards and two touchdowns. Our View: Britt has become quite the fantasy asset this year. He got into the end zone twice in Week 6, and he's regularly getting around eight targets per game in 2016. So long as Case Keenum is the QB, Britt should continue to get those kind of looks.

He was targeted eight times. Our View: Britt isn't quite the potentially dominant physical wide receiver he was before his ACL tear, but he is playing with more consistency and strength running after the catch. He is a high floor WR3/Flex with surging value in nonPPR leagues.
