News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Britt's fantasy value was trending towards life support. Now with the Rams tightening up the passing game, he is droppable - again.
General News (Fri Oct 24): practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this weekend.
General News (Wed Oct 22): did not practice on Wednesday.
Week 8: at Kansas City Chiefs
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Austin Davis continues to deliver for the Rams, leading a 28-26 upset of the Seahawks during Week 7 - he pitched 18/21 for a modest 152 yards passing, but had two TDs vs. zero interceptions on the day. Benny Cunningham (five targets for 5/46/1 receiving) and Lance Kendricks (three for 2/17/1) snagged the TDs from Davis, while Brian Quick (two for 2/33/0), Chris Givens (one for 1/30/0) and Jared Cook (three for 3/25/0) helped move the chains from time to time. The Chiefs' pass D is ranked second in the league averaging 209.0 net yards allowed per game, with 11 passing scores given up vs. three interceptions (tied for 24th in the NFL) and 17 sacks (tied for 12th) generated. Philip Rivers was held under 200 net yards passing last week (17/31 for 182 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -23 yards). This secondary is quality, folks. Advantage, Kansas City and their formidable '12th Man' at Arrowhead Stadium.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 5 vs PHI (6 / 3 / 68 / 1 rec)
It was obvious that the Rams were beginning to get Britt involved in the game, and that continued this week. It's simply not possible to double cover both Quick and Britt, and their height and leaping ability are a nightmare matchup for opposing cornerbacks. Britt only had 3 catches, but he also drew a pass interference on a deep pass, and continues to provide a big threat to defenses with his big play ability. On his touchdown, he ran a deep route to the endzone, and simply outworked his defender to catch the deep ball from Davis. Britt had better awareness, stopped, got in between the defender and the ball, and made the play on the jump ball. Britt is an excellent jump ball receiver, and Davis is beginning to give him the chances to make plays. Britt has always had a bit of trouble catching the ball cleanly, and he did drop two passes in this game. But his emergence creates a headache for defenses on the outside, as Davis has shown that he has no qualms about throwing it up to Britt or Quick. At this point, Quick has been getting more balls. But as the season goes along, this could easily grow into a 1A/1B scenario, where it's tough to tell who is going to have the hot hand. Britt shouldn't be on waivers in any ppr format.
2014 Week 6 vs SF (6 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)
Britt's biggest play was a deep comeback route for 18 yards. He had 2 other receptions, but wasn't able to get open deep or challenge the 49ers on a consistent basis, which led to a poor game. Britt never challeneged the 49ers vertically, and isn't taking advantage of the double teams that Quick is drawing.
2014 Week 7 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 4 / 0 rec)
Britt was injured early on, but came back on the field to convert a big 3rd down against Sherman. But aside from that, he did nothing, finishing with a paltry 2 catches for 4 yards. The gameplan wasn't there for Britt, Quick and Cook, as the Rams used the three as decoys, setting up the underneath stuff for most of the game, and Britt's numbers suffered.
