It was reported, however, Britt was inactive for Week 6 in part because of his lack of production this season, according to sources. The team wanted to give some other receivers playing time over Britt.
Week 7: vs Tennessee Titans
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Browns passing attack is simply one of the worst in the league. While they have passed for decent yardage as a team, the Browns quarterbacks own both the lowest quarterback rating (56.7) and completion percentage (54.3) in the league. They have thrown two interceptions for every one touchdown this season--a very difficult feat to accomplish. Kevin Hogan was very bad in his last start against a Texans defense that was actually missing it's top three pass rushers. Even against that weakened front seven, Hogan was still sacked four times while only passing for 140 yards, one touchdown, and a whopping three interceptions. The Browns are going back to their opening day starter as they continue to try to find a quarterback in DeShone Kizer who Hue Jackson said will be the starter going forward. Kizer changes very little as we have seem him struggle mightily so far this season completing just 50.9% of his passes and throwing nine interceptions compared to just three touchdowns. The Browns receivers are barely worth mentioning as they are all suffering from this poor quarterback play. Ricardo Louis currently leads the team in both targets (35) and receptions (18) as Kenny Britt remains sidelined with a groin injury. The Titans secondary looked much improved against what was a struggling Colts offense on Monday night this past week. Their cornerback group actually did a great job here after a very rough start to the season. They shut down T.Y. Hilton to just one reception for 19 yards and held Jacoby Brissett to 212 passing yards and a 57% completion rate. This is only one game though, and against a bad offense at that. The Titans still rank near the bottom of the league in passing defense with the sixth and tenth most fantasy points per game allowed to quarterbacks and wide receivers respectively. The Titans pass rush has also really struggled this season, amassing only eight sacks on the year--third fewest in the league. They have played well against the pass in soft matchups such as this one, however, so it will take some decent play out of Kevin Hogan to really threaten this Titans secondary.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 4 vs CIN (8 / 3 / 52 / 0 rec)
It was another rough day at the office for Britt, who has not acquitted himself with his new team very well. For the second straight week, Britt saw a catchable ball bounce off of his hands and into a defender's for an interception. That wasn't Britt's only mistake. He drew a false start penalty on the third play of the game. He had Pacman Jones beat on a route on the team's second drive, only to slip while coming back to the pass, which prevented him from making the catch. His best play came on a 26-yard contested catch down the middle of the field which saw him outmuscle a defender for the ball and tack on some extra yardage after the catch. Britt earned an end zone target from Kevin Hogan on the last drive of the game but the pass was broken up by the defender.
2017 Week 3 vs IND (10 / 3 / 54 / 1 rec)
Britt's final stat line looks solid but he had another poor showing for the Browns in Week 3. He dropped at least three catchable balls, with one resulting in an interception after a pass glanced off his fingertips and into a defender's arms. Earlier in the game he had a pass ripped out of his arms by a defender which resulted in an incompletion. It was a play that Britt should have made. Britt did make a few good plays, including a 38-yard reception down the left sideline in which he burned corner back Pierre Desir for an easy grab. Britt scored his first touchdown with the Browns in the fourth quarter after fending off defensive pass interference to make a falling catch in the end zone. Upon viewing the replay, there's a good chance he went out of bounds before securing the catch but the Colts failed to challenge the ruling on the field, allowing the touchdown to stand. With Corey Coleman out for at least two months, Britt led the Browns in targets in Week 3.
2017 Week 2 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Britt's only catch came on a short screen in the first quarter. He later had a catch nullified after he was called for offensive pass interference. It was a good call as he clearly pushed off of the defender. He appeared to be having trouble getting open down the field at times.
2017 Week 1 vs PIT (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Britt's sluggish preseason carried over to the regular season against the Steelers. Britt made only one catch, a 13-yard grab on an out route in the third quarter. He and DeShone Kizer also had a miscommunication on a route in the second quarter as Kizer threw the ball toward the sideline while Britt went down the middle of the field. Britt also committed a bad drop on the team's second-to-last drive of the game. He was wide open on the play and would have picked up at least 20 yards, but he tried to turn and run with the ball before securing the catch.

With DeShone Kizer back in the starting lineup for the Browns, we're not thrilled about the Cleveland passing attack.
