WR Kenny Britt - Free Agent
|6-3, 218||Born: 9-19-1988||College: Rutgers||Drafted: Round 1, pick 2009|
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.
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 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 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 7 vs TEN (5 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
Britt returned to action after a two-week absence but was a non-factor. He caught two short passes and got up gingerly after the second catch. He checked himself out of the game afterwards but returned on the following play. He did get open down the left sideline during the fourth quarter but he was overthrown by Cody Kessler. It would have gone for a big gain had the two connected. Britt later injured himself again, this time in overtime. He had a deep target bounce off of his hands and left the game after the play. He was called questionable to return by the team and was not seen again. Whether it's the season-long knee issue or his more recent groin strain that was dogging him, it is clear he was playing at less than 100%.
2017 Week 10 vs DET (3 / 2 / 38 / 1 rec)
Britt was demoted to second string receiver before the game but he didn't show any ill effects as he posted one of his best games as a Brown. Britt scored his second touchdown of the season on the Browns' second drive of the game. He caught a short pass and then broke a Nevin Lawson tackle for a 19-yard score. Britt could have had a bigger game but he saw a 29-yard reception nullified by an offensive holding penalty. On the final drive of the game, Britt drew an end zone target from DeShone Kizer, but the ball was thrown much too high for him to have a chance at the catch. Much maligned this season for not appearing to be fully invested at times, Britt even showed some fire in the second half when he fired his helmet to the ground after Cody Kessler missed him on a pass.
2017 Week 11 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Britt wasn't even heard from until he caught two short passes in succession during the fourth quarter. Britt failed to do much while Corey Coleman was sidelined with a broken hand. With Coleman back now, Britt will become an afterthought in the Cleveland offense.
2017 Week 12 vs CIN (2 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Britt was used sparsely but he made the most of his two targets, catching them both. In the second quarter, on 3rd-and-12, Britt made a 14-yard reception to give his team a new set of downs. Later, in the fourth quarter, Britt had a fantastic 38-yard catch-and-run where he outran several defenders to pick up extra yardage.
2017 Week 16 vs BUF (2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt was held to only one catch on an intermediate inbreaking route. Britt was the intended receiver on Tom Brady's interception, where Britt ran a slant. Brady was late throwing to Britt, but Britt did not have a good feel on how to react to Buffalo's zone coverage on the play.
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
2015 Week 1 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt didn't have an impact on the game until late in the 4th quarter. On a 3rd and 15 with under two minutes left, Britt came across the field for a big 21 yard gain. This play set up the game tying touchdown.
2015 Week 2 vs WAS (4 / 2 / 44 / 1 rec)
Kenny Britt didn't have an impact on the game until mid 3rd quarter. On a 2nd and 1 from the Redskins 39 yard line, Britt out ran two defenders and caught a perfectly thrown touchdown pass. After the touchdown, Britt received a 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty for taunting. Britt felt the need to stand over Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall and S Trenton Robinson. Britt's only other reception was a 5 yard out-route early in the 4th quarter.
2015 Week 3 vs PIT (10 / 7 / 102 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt was the main target in the passing game. He was able to get open with ease and had his best day of the season. Britt's first reception came on a 13 yard gain on a crossing route in the middle of the second quarter. He came up hobbling after the play and the training staff checked his right knee on the sideline. Britt re-entered the game three plays later catching a quick slant over the middle for a 19 yard gain. During the 3rd quarter on a 2nd and 10, Britt caught a comeback route for a 14 yard gain down the right sideline. On the next series, Britt found space in the middle of the Steelers defense for a 26 yard gain, his longest of the afternoon. In the 4th quarter, Britt caught 2 curl routes for gains of 11 and 13 yards.
2015 Week 4 vs ARI (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt didn't receive any targets until late in the 4th quarter. On a 3rd and 4 from the St. Louis 20 yard line, Britt dropped an easy reception on a comeback route.
2015 Week 5 vs GB (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt didn't had four targets in the game but zero receptions. He has taken a back seat to the other playmakers in the offense over the past couple of weeks.
2015 Week 7 vs CLE (2 / 1 / 41 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt made an impact late in the 3rd quarter. Britt ran a go-route and made a 41 yard reception before being tackled inches short of the end zone.
2015 Week 8 vs SF (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt did not have any receptions in the game. During the first series on a 3rd and 4. Britt ran a go-route down the left sideline. The ball hit him in stride but he dropped it.
2015 Week 9 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 87 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had an impact on the game with 3 receptions for 87 yards. Late 1st quarter on a 3rd and 5, Britt ran a go-route and came down with a 55 yard reception. Britt showed good concentration making the catch. Early 2nd quarter, Britt made a 23 yard reception on a sideline route. Late 4th quarter, Britt ran a comeback route and made a 9 yard reception near the right sideline.
2015 Week 10 vs CHI (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had 3 targets in the game and finished with 1 reception. Late 2nd quarter, Britt ran a comeback-route for a 6 yard reception.
2015 Week 11 vs BAL (5 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had 2 receptions on 5 targets for 24 yards. On the first play from scrimmage, Britt ran a comeback-route for a 16 yard reception. Early 2nd quarter on a 3rd and 5, Britt ran a curl-route for a 8 yard reception.
2015 Week 12 vs CIN (11 / 6 / 63 / 0 rec)
With the Rams playing from behind, Britt was targeted a season-high 11 times. Late 2nd quarter, Britt caught a screen pass for negative 1 yard. A couple of plays later, Britt ran a comeback-route for a 18 yard reception. Britt followed that up running a slant-route for a 14 yard reception. Late 3rd quarter, Britt ran a comeback-route for a 5 yard reception. During the next series, Britt ran a comeback-route and caught a 15 yard reception on the right sideline. Late 4th quarter, Britt ran a slant-route for a 12 yard reception.
2015 Week 13 vs ARI (6 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had 2 receptions on 6 targets for 41 yards. Late 1st quarter, Britt ran a go-route down the right sideline and made a 30 yard reception while out-jumping the defensive back. Early 4th quarter, Britt ran a slant-route for a 11 yard gain.
2015 Week 14 vs DET (5 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had 2 receptions on 5 targets for 35 yards. Late 3rd quarter, Britt ran a vertical-route and caught a jump-ball for a 25 yard reception. Early 4th quarter, Britt ran a slant-route for a 10 yard reception.
2015 Week 15 vs TB (2 / 2 / 71 / 1 rec)
Kenny Britt had 2 receptions on 2 targets for 71 yards and 1 touchdown. Late 1st quarter, Britt made an early impact with a 60 yard touchdown reception. On the play, Britt got behind the defense while running a vertical-route down the left sideline. On the next series, Britt ran a crossing-route for a 11 yard reception.
2015 Week 16 vs SEA (4 / 3 / 49 / 1 rec)
Kenny Britt had 3 receptions on 4 targets for 39 yards and 1 touchdown. Early 1st quarter, Britt ran a curl-route for a 13 yard reception. Early 2nd quarter, Britt ran a curl-route for a 8 yard reception. Mid 2nd quarter, Britt ran a vertical-route for a 28 yard touchdown reception. On the play, Britt got behind Seattle cornerback, Richard Sherman, and dove for the reception.
2015 Week 17 vs SF (5 / 3 / 81 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had 3 receptions for 81 yards. Early 1st quarter, Britt ran a vertical-route for a 54 yard reception. On the play, Britt ran undefended down the middle of the field. Early 3rd quarter on 3rd and 5, Britt ran a comeback-route for a 9 yard reception. In overtime, Britt ran a crossing-route for a 18 yard reception.
2014 Week 1 vs MIN (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Britt's first game was a huge bust. Britt really didn't get a target until late in the game. Davis threw up a ball to Britt late in the game against backups, but Britt couldn't make the reception. Overall, he finished without a reception despite being on the field most of the game. His inability to provide anything was a shocking start to the season for a guy who has had a good training camp, from what we've read. If Bradford were here or if the offense as a whole performed well, than perhaps you wouldn't need to panic. But when you consider where this offense is right now, it's tough to manage any sort of optimism for Britt after that performance.
2014 Week 2 vs TB (1 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)
Britt's big training camp and preseason has come to a crashing halt in the first two weeks. Perhaps the problem is that he's on his third QB in 2 months, or that he's in a new offensive system. Britt's first reception as a Ram came in the 3rd quarter. On 3rd and 10, Britt caught a deep comeback route for 17 yards. The Rams also caught the Bucs napping on an end-around that Britt took for 12 yards around the right end. At this point, Britt has been a non-factor. But he showed in the pre-season that he still has the ability to go high in the air and catch the ball. He also looked fast on his 2nd half running attempt. Therefore, it wouldn't be a surprise if Britt comes on in the future. Despite having 1 catch in 2 games, I think it's highly possible that he gets involved, as defenses rotate to Brian Quick.
2014 Week 3 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Last week we discussed the possibility of Britt emerging soon. This week, he emerged, getting heavily involved in the game. Britt went deep a number of times. On the second drive, Davis threw it over his head on a deep ball. Later in the half, Davis launched a bomb to Britt, and Britt almost came up with it on the dive. The key takeaway is that Davis is looking for Britt deep, which is a good sign. Later in the game, Davis began to connect. First, he threw it high into the air for a 16 yard gain across the middle. Then on the next drive, Davis fired a ball high and deep down the left sideline. Britt turned around, jumped high in the air, and made a great play on the ball for a 38 yard gain. Britt immediately gave Davis a positive signal, as if to say, "just get me the ball". Britt ended up with a solid game that could have been even better with a few more connections on bombs. Britt might still be under the radar enough to grab him cheaply this week. But if he continues to get in sync with Davis and the offense, that won't last much longer.
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.
2014 Week 8 vs KC (5 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Britt had a huge play on the first drive. Britt was lined up in a 3 wr bunch formation, started off running inside, then cut out toward the sideline on a deep route. Austin Davis hit him in stride with a perfect 43 yard pass. On the next possession, Britt ran deep again and Davis threw to him, but it was intercepted. It was a poor decision to throw towards Britt as he had double coverage. After that, the Chiefs brought the house, and the long developing routes kept Britt from making any further impact, even after Quick left the game with an injury. If Quick misses significant time, however, Britt will become Quick's primary WR. This could be a lucrative fantasy position, especially against poor defenses.
2014 Week 9 vs SF (4 / 2 / 32 / 1 rec)
Britt was the intended receiver on one of the INT's, although the ball was thrown 5-10 yards in front of him. On the positive side of things, Britt did score the game's only TD. Britt immediately ran a shallow crossing route, and Davis hit him over the middle. Britt streaked toward the sideline and into the endzone untouched for a 21 yard TD. Aside from that, Britt's only reception was a short comeback route for an 11 yard first down. Britt's strengths as a WR are down the field, and Austin Davis just isn't getting enough time for these deep routes to open up. It might be a good idea for the Rams to look at some of the shorter routes, such as the one that Britt scored on. Britt is the biggest playmaker on offense right now, and the Rams need to manufacture ways to get him the ball.
2014 Week 10 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Britt was both the most targeted, and most productive of the Rams receivers, as clear an indication as any that Davis struggled getting the ball outside on Sunday. Britt never attempted to challenge the Cardinals deep on Sunday, and simply put drives were just not sustained well enough to get him involved consistently on short-intermediate routes. Between an unproductive run game and a quarterback who was looking primarily at his tight ends on passing plays, the opportunities for Britt and the Rams wide receivers simply were not there on Sunday. Credit the Cardinals secondary too, Cromartie has been consistent all year and Patrick Peterson had arguably the best game of his career. That will make it difficult on any receiving corps, but especially one that's underperformed all season.
2014 Week 11 vs DEN (7 / 4 / 128 / 1 rec)
In Shaun Hill's first game as the main QB, Kenny Britt finally got his opportunity to shine. Britt got the Rams into the endzone on a beautiful 63 yard Td. Britt had some nifty hipwork and got his rookie CB turned around, resulting in Britt sailing past him, hauling in the pass and streaking for the endzone. Britt wasn't done, as he then ran a crossing route, found himself in the middle of the defense and caught a 21 yard strike from Hill. He followd that up with an 11 yard catch on a slant route, where he showed his physicality after the catch. There was a time when Britt was considered one of the rising stars at WR in the league. He certainly looks the part, but has been plagued with off-the-field issues and injuries. The Austin Davis era didn't do Britt many favors, either. But Shaun Hill seemed to give Britt the same opportunities that he gave Calvin Johnson once upon a time, and it resulted in a big game for Britt. If Britt is available on waivers, he needs to be added quickly. He has the talent to dominate, but things just haven't fallen into place for him. If Hill's first game is any indication, that could change over the final portion of this season.
2014 Week 12 vs SD (6 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt didn't get a lot of targets, as his primary role was to stretch the field. Britt did so on a beautiful stop-and-go move to burn the Chargers for a 51 yard touchdown in the 2nd half. But a facemask penalty wiped out the TD. Aside from a short 10 yard pass across the middle, Britt had a bad looking box score going into the final drive. But then Hill threw another deep ball to Britt deep toward the goalline, and Britt made an excellent diving catch for a 27 yard gain. Britt's poor numbers don't change anything from a week ago. He is the primary deep threat with a QB that likes to throw deep. He doesn't, however, appear to be getting a lot of short and intermediate looks, which is keeping him from putting together consistent performances.
2014 Week 13 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Britt made a great play on an early short slant for 13 yards. He dragged the pile for 13 big yards early on. He also drew a pass interference penalty on a deep ball from Shaun Hill later in the half. But since he wasn't a big part of the early success in the first five drives, the Rams went away from the passing game, and Britt's targets never materialized. Britt may not have had the yards over the last two weeks, but he is still a big part of the Rams passing attack, and could still have a few big games down the stretch if the Rams offense is put in passing situations.
2014 Week 14 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Britt has been very close to some big plays over the past few weeks, and that continued against Washington. Britt completely destroyed his defender twice on deep balls in the first half. On the first, he broke a double team and was wide open, only to see Shaun Hill completely underthrow him. Then later in the half, he broke free of his defender again, and caught a 41 yard pass that would have easily been a TD had the ball been thrown out in front of him. Britt looks really good running deep and coming out of breaks. He is so rangy and his speed always seems to surprise defenders, as he's so tall. In the right offense, he could put up big numbers. Britt had another out pattern that went for 11 yards, and so he finished with another subpar receiving game. Of course much of that was due to the fact that the Rams barely threw the ball in the 2nd half. Britt will have some big days ahead, and could really explode in 2015 if the right QB comes to town.
2014 Week 15 vs ARI (9 / 5 / 65 / 0 rec)
We've been telling you Britt has been doing well, and this good play continued in this game. Britt made some very physical and tough catches. His best catch was late in the 4th quarter when Hill threw one up down the right sideline. Britt caught it and was pummeled by two defenders. But he held on and made the big 22 yard reception. Britt also caught a deep in route from Hill that was thrown way over his head. But Britt jumped high in the air and caught the poorly thrown ball for the first down. Britt showed his strength on a short slant pass deep in Cardinals territory late in the 4th quarter as he caught the ball and ran over the defenders to get the first. Britt is playing physical and still looks fast. He may or may not have lost a step, it's hard to tell. Every time he gets targeted downfield, the passes are nowhere near him. But his physicality and hands are there, and he can run deep routes, as well as short routes. If the Rams upgrade their QB in 2015, Britt could be a huge sleeper for 2015, as he's just a QB and more targets away from having a very good year.
2014 Week 16 vs NYG (11 / 9 / 103 / 0 rec)
Britt has been a big part of this offense for most of the year. He's always on the field, and he always looks to be a nightmare matchup for db's. But unfortunately, penalties, and game situations have kept him from having a lot of success. In this game, we finally got a glimpse of what he could still do, if given the opportunities. Britt's big body made him almost impossible to cover. His long reception of 27 yards came on a QB scramble. As Hill scrambled toward the sideline, he hurled it downfield to Britt, who raced toward the sideline and pulled down the ball just before going out of bounds. Britt has always had the talent, but has never really been on a team with a solid QB. Throughout his days with the Titans, and now in another lost season for St. Louis, he's been surrounded by mediocrity. This game was a glimpse of what 2015 could hold for St. Louis. The Giants had no one that could match his size and speed combo. The Rams haven't been in a lot of situations where they had to pass, so his numbers haven't been great this year. But in this game, Britt got off the line quickly, and Hill had no problems getting him the ball on short routes. Shaun Hill did attempt one deep ball to Britt, and again the ball was thrown short. Hill hasn't connected with Britt on a deep ball yet, but it's not Britt's fault. Britt has continually beaten his man downfield, but Hill just doesn't have the arm strength to hit Britt deep downfield in stride. He hung the ball in the air, and Britt was unable to come down with it.
2014 Week 17 vs SEA (5 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)
Britt continued to be the primary option for Hill in the first half, as he got a few short slants and outs, racking up a few catches in the first few drives. But his matchup against Richard Sherman wasn't an easy one, and Britt wasn't able to do a whole lot. With an improvement at the QB situation, and a line that can protect the QB, Britt could be a big sleeper going into 2015. He looks like he has his speed back on the deep balls, and at times looks unguardable on short passes. Even in this game, he physically looks quite imposing. On one play he caught a short pass despite Richard Sherman was draped all over him. But he fought Sherman for a first down and showed the strength that he possesses. He's only 26, so he could really blossom in 2015 in the right situation.
2013 Week 1 vs PIT (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Britt caught Locker's first pass as he settled down in a curl route deep in the Steelers' secondary for a first down.
2013 Week 2 vs HOU (9 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
Britt didn't see the ball come his way until the start of the second quarter, when Locker slightly overthrew him running down the seam. Britt was double covered as a safety came across to him with a cornerback a yard or two behind him. Locker tried to find Britt early on the next drive, but he threw the ball straight to the defender instead of the receiver whow as waiting for the ball underneath. Britt wasn't heavily involved in the offense, as his next target came late in the third quarter on second and three. Britt ran a slant route that was well covered, but Locker put the ball slightly behind him to give him a chance to catch it. The receiver couldn't control it however. Britt and Locker finally connected when Britt adjusted very well to a low pass from Locker six yards down the field. Britt caught a nine yard comeback route on the same drive. Two plays later, Britt caught a quick pass underneath before being taken down by an arriving defender. Locker looked for Britt in single coverage, but the ball sailed out over the sideline and the Johnathan Joseph was in good position either way. As the Titans were trying to drive into field goal range late in the fourth quarter, Britt caught a nine yard comeback route with Joseph draped all over him. He came free on the next play on a quick slant route, but Locker threw the ball too high so it bounced off of his finger tips.
2013 Week 3 vs SD (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Britt's first target came on Locker's first pass of the game, as he dropped a curl route when he was open underneath. Britt followed that up with a false start on the Titans first third down. Britt reacted to a hard count from Locker that was supposed to draw the defense offside. Britt started the game terribly and the boos from the stands grew louder when he couldn't catch a pass in the endzone. While the ball hit his hands, it wasn't a drop because he was trying to catch the ball over the defensive back. Had Britt made the reception, it would have been lauded as a very difficult catch, so it's tough to blame him on this occasion as much as the fans will have wanted to. Britt couldn't connect with Locker as he worked back on a short curl route on second and 10. The duo just couldn't connect on the day. Locker went straight back to Britt on the next play, a third and 20, when he forced the ball to him in tight coverage. Britt did well to initial get his hands on the ball, but couldn't keep it as he landed hard on his head from a high leap. Nothing was going Britt's way, as he was then flagged for an illegal block in the back on a big run from Kendall Wright. Locker looked for Britt in the fourth quarter deep down the sideline. Britt couldn't come up with the catch as the defensive back got tight to him and used his hands to knock the ball away. It was the type of play that Britt has all the ability to make however. Something he likely would have done before his torn ACL.
2013 Week 5 vs KC (6 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Britt did well to fight through coverage to give himself to catch a lame duck pass from Fitzpatrick late in the first quarter, but he dropped the ball after getting into good position. Britt and Fitzpatrick couldn't connect again in the second quarter. Fitzpatrick overthrew Britt down the right sideline. Britt spoke previously about being traded and he is playing like a receiver who needs a fresh start. He dropped a perfectly thrown pass from Fitzpatrick in the endzone in the third quarter. Britt finally caught his first pass in the fourth quarter when he worked back to the football on a curl route. Two plays later, on third and one, it looked like Britt caught a slant route under pressure to convert for a first down, but the ball came out as he went to the ground.
2013 Week 6 vs SEA (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Britt saw the field late in the fourth quarter. He is far down the pecking order at this stage, but he caught a curl route for a first down regardless.
2013 Week 7 vs SF (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Britt's first target came late in the fourth quarter on a comeback route. He made an impressive reception falling out of bounds for an eight yard gain and a first down. Britt later drew a pass interference flag deep down the sideline. On that play, Britt pushed Tarrell Brown after the play but wasn't punished. On the very next play, he made sure to draw a flag as he knocked Brown to the ground after the play again.
2013 Week 9 vs STL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Britt's only target in the first half resulted in an interception, but there was nothing Britt could do about it. Locker led Cortland Finnegan to the football with his eyes before he threw the ball straight to the defensive back.
2013 Week 10 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Britt had one target in the whole game, it came at the very end of the fourth quarter. He looked disinterested in the ball as it came in low and instead he focused on grabbing the defensive back after the play to push him.
2013 Week 12 vs OAK (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Britt was targeted on second and 21 in the second quarter, but he dropped a pass that could have gone for a first down. On third and three later in the second quarter, he dropped another pass deep down the field.
2013 Week 15 vs ARI (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Justin Hunter was inactive for breaking team rules, so Britt got an opportunity to see more playing time. His first target came in the second quarter, as he stayed alive with Ryan Fitzpatrick when he broke into the float. Britt caught the ball in traffic just short of a first down. Britt could have marked his return with a touchdown, a very long touchdown, but Fitzpatrick overthrew him after he got behind the secondary. Britt nearly had another touchdown later on the drive, but couldn't hold onto the ball as he absorbed a big hit in the end zone. On the final play of the third quarter, two drives later, Britt caught a first down pass on a crossing route. Britt looked comfortable. More comfortable than he did at any previous point in the season. He caught a curl route before breaking a tackle for a seven yard gain.
2012 Week 2 vs SD (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Britt had an extremely quiet 2012 debut, with just one short reception for the entire game. He was in and out of the lineup, but had zero impact in the game.
2012 Week 3 vs DET (11 / 6 / 55 / 0 rec)
From the beginning of the game, Kenny Britt was much the focus for Locker. Britt grabbed 2 catches for 24 yards on the Titans' first drive. Britt is a large target, and took advantage of some suspect tackling from Detroit's secondary. Britt showed flashes of top wide receiver potential. He consistently found holes in the defense and the showed strength in his hands to take catches away from defenders. Britt's final catch of the day was completed for 3 yards, and Britt drug 2 Lions players for the final 5. After the catch, Britt left the game with an apparent ankle injury and did not return.
2012 Week 5 vs MIN (5 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Britt was active against Minnesota but did very little with his five targets. He was often single-covered on the left side of the field but was not in sync with Matt Hasselbeck. Britt ran a number of go routes and in routes but was not able to get the ball on the run and had minimal impact on the game as a whole.
2012 Week 6 vs PIT (11 / 4 / 62 / 1 rec)
Returning from injury, Britt was utilized often by Tennessee in the game. For most of the game, though, he looked very rusty. Much like Johnson, a nice box score for Britt doesn't even begin to tell the story of how he played. He had multiple drops - including one in the endzone prior to his touchdown catch and another on an easy quick slant. In fact, the touchdown catch didn't even come easy, as he bobbled the ball before fully securing it. Britt did contribute outside of the box score, though, as he drew a deep pass interference penalty to set up Tennessee at the one-yard line. When Jake Locker returns, expect he and Britt to be more in sync - partially due to the assumption that Britt will get better and healthier each week and partially due to Locker being more willing to take shots downfield than Hasselbeck. Britt is still the most talented receiver on this team, and they'll continue to feed him the ball.
2012 Week 7 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 30 / 0 rec)
It appeared Britt was in store for a big day as he caught three balls on the opening drive for 27 yards, including picking up 16 yards on his first catch and dragging two tacklers for extra yardage in the process. Later in the drive, Britt's 3rd catch was clearly a designed play to get him in space. Dragging across the middle, pressure forced Hasselbeck to be late on the throw, allowing the coverage to collapse. And because of the pressure and resulting scramble, Wright also came back to Hasselbeck, bringing an extra defender with him. There was lots of open space and a potential blocker in Wright had the throw been on time. However, Britt would only receive three more targets (and one catch) the rest of the game. Britt declared himself "95% healthy" going in to the game and that certainly contributed to his not being on the field for every snap. Early Buffalo let the Titans formations dictate their coverage, but after the opening drive Britt rarely saw anyone other than Stephon Gilmore across from him. Gilmore did a tremendous job on Larry Fitzgerald the week prior, limiting him to one catch and 14 yards and he did a nice job on Britt on Sunday as well. Britt tried to run a comeback route on the Titans' 3rd drive, but never was able to gain the separation necessary from Gilmore to complete the pass. It wasn't only Gilmore limiting Britt, however, as it appeared Hasselbeck just stopped looking his way in the 2nd half, targeting him only once and often not even looking to his side of the field. Britt did manage to beat Gilmore's (and the helping safety's) coverage with just pure speed late in the 2nd quarter on a deep vertical route from the slot, but Hasselbeck missed the wide-open Britt. Had the pass been on target, Britt would have easily scored. The Titans' second-to-last drive also appeared to have Hasselbeck targeting Britt on a deep sideline route, but a blitzing Shawne Merriman drove the left tackle into Hasselbeck's lap, not allowing a throw and forcing him to scramble away from Britt before ultimately throwing the ball away. Britt looked explosive early and had little trouble winning with speed on the missed pass from Hasselbeck, but the course of the game didn't call for much from the passing attack because of the success of the running game. Britt did a nice job in pass blocking as well, as it was his block on the outside, which allowed Johnson to break off his 83-yard TD run.
2012 Week 8 vs IND (5 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Britt ran mostly go routes and quick hitches as the Titans worked to increase their success in deep passes. Britt is excellent at recognizing coverage at the line of scrimmage and adjusting his route to a hook or slant if his man is playing off of him. Conversely, if the defender is tight to the line, Britt adjusts to run a skinny post or go route. He was targeted 5 times by Matt Hasselbeck, catching 3 passes for 34 yards. Unfortunately, Britt was also whistled twice for offensive pass interference including on one play that nullified a 22 yard touchdown. His best catch came on a 9 yard reception to the left where Britt showed deft hands and balance in running a crisp route and making up part of the yardage he had lost for the team on an interference penalty.
2012 Week 9 vs CHI (8 / 5 / 67 / 0 rec)
Hasselbeck started the game looking Britt's way early and often. However, Britt got into the fumble excitement by allowing himself to be stripped and lose the ball to the Steelers. Every week I watch Britt, he seems to be looking more and more like himself. He used his wide frame to get open, and his speed to get separation on a number of mid-range routes. Britt also worked over the cornerback on a late-game 2 point conversion.
2012 Week 10 vs MIA (6 / 2 / 36 / 0 rec)
Targeted the most often by Jake Locker, Britt only caught the two balls, but is clearly the go-to receiver whether Locker or Hasselbeck is at quarterback. Swearing to be fully healthy, I will continue to wait for Britt's breakout game. With the Titans firmly in control of this game by early in the second quarter, there was no need to take downfield shots, which ultimately hurt Britt's ability to make a major impact on the game. But, now that Locker is back under center, and the run game is seemingly firing on all cylinders, the outlook on the playaction pass downfield is better than it has been at any point during the season. Britt did drop a pass on a short throw from Locker, but they need a chance to get back in sync after not playing together for more than a month. Although he may not have all of his explosiveness back after shredding his knee, he will be getting closer and closer every week, and with a talent upgrade at quarterback, Britt could be due for an explosion at any moment.
2012 Week 12 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 25 / 1 rec)
Britt quietly caught three balls against the Jaguars. He primarily ran out routes and curls on the left side of the field. Britt's best catch came on a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. On the play, he lined up to the left side. Quarterback Jake Locker took the snap in the shotgun and lofted a high fade to Britt in the right corner of the endzone. Britt secured the ball and drug both feet inbounds for the score. Britt also recorded a reception as the Titans tried to lateral their way from their own 10 yard line to the endzone as the game clock wound down. For all intents and purposes he finished the day with three receptions, all on short patterns to the left side.
2012 Week 13 vs HOU (8 / 2 / 40 / 1 rec)
Britt had two receptions against the Texans including a nice 34 yard touchdown catch to the right side of the end zone. He was targeted often by quarterback Jake Locker but the quarterbacks accuracy did not provide many opportunities for Britt to make a catch. He primarily ran deep outs and go patterns to the right side and go patterns and deep crosses from the left.
2012 Week 14 vs IND (9 / 8 / 143 / 0 rec)
Britt had an excellent game against the Colts. Indianapolis chose to single-cover Britt with Vontae Davis for most of the game and the tall, fast Titans receiver made them pay dearly. He caught eight of the nine balls that came his way for a game high 143 yards. Britt's best catch came on a 46 yard reception with a minute left in the first half. On the play, Britt sprinted down the left sideline on a go route. Even though he was interfered with on the play, he still managed to coral the Jake Locker thrown pass with one hand for a huge gain before being tackled. Britt primarily ran deep crosses, go routes, and deep slants as the Titans sought to attack through the air downfield while loosening up the middle of the field for Chris Johnson runs. Britt showed excellent footwork and strength in getting off the line and was precise in his route-running throughout.
2012 Week 15 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Britt was shadowed by Antonio Cromartie. Cromartie did an excellent job taking Britt away by pressing him at the line of scrimmage. Locker tried to complete two deep passes down the left sideline, but Cromartie had safety help over the top and knocked the ball away.
2012 Week 16 vs GB (6 / 2 / 41 / 1 rec)
Britt led all Titans receivers with six targets - catching two passes for forty-one yards. Britt caught a deep jump-ball pass from Locker for thirty-nine yards, showing great ball skills as he physically dominated Packers cornerback Casey Hayward. Granted, Hayward was likely uninterested in the game when the pass came late in the fourth quarter and the Titans slogging through Death Star garbage compactor-level garbage time. Britt followed up this long reception with a two-yard touchdown grab in which the Packers paid no mind to him as he walked into the end zone.
2012 Week 17 vs JAX (5 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Britt finished the day with two short catches. The first came on a quick pass to the left that gained 10 yards. The second came on a quick out to the right that gained 11 yards and a first down as the third quarter wound to a close. Britt was also targeted twice on downfield routes but was not able to make a long catch. Britt's four targets (as well as one that resulted in penalty) made him the most targeted receiver on the day for Jake Locker. The Titans continue running Britt primarily on deep outs and deep crosses from the left side. He finished the season with a mere 45 receptions and 589 yards despite being one of Jake Locker's preferred downfield targets.
2011 Week 1 vs JAX (10 / 5 / 136 / 2 rec)
Britt was the lone statistical bright spot for the Titans beleaguered offense. On a day when not much else was working, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was able to count on Britt to keep the Titans in the ball game. On his first touchdown, Britt lined up on the left side and appeared to be running an inside post. Hasselbeck was flushed up the middle from the pocket and managed to flick the ball 8 yards over a streaking linebacker to Britt. Britt received the ball in full stride and turned upfield, essentially untouched as he ran an additional 70 yards for the score. Britt's best catch came on a two yard touchdown touchdown to bring the Titans within 2 points late in the fourth quarter. On the play he lined up on the left side of the line and ran a corner-fade. Matt Hasselbeck placed the ball high where only Britt could catch it. Most impressive was Britt's ability to get two feet down in bounds while backwards as he extended himself for the catch.
2011 Week 2 vs BAL (13 / 9 / 135 / 1 rec)
Britt is quickly becoming a superstar. From the start, I thought Britt had a chance to be just as good as Hakeem Nicks. Three things have thus far kept him from reaching those heights: Injuries, off the field actions, and porous QB play. With Hasselbeck's accurate arm, Britt is making all the catches. He started off with a 37 yard bomb that Hasselbeck dropped right over his shoulder. He made big first down catches, he ran slants, curls, go routes, you name it. On his touchdown, he simply established position and easily beat out the hapless CB for what looked like a ridiculously easy score. Britt has had two huge games to start out the season, and looks ready to take that leap into superstardom. Britt's dominance continued to come at big times as well. He closed the game on his last catch by taking a ball across the middle and finishing off the Ravens with a long first down that put the game on ice. Defenses are going to have to account for Britt. Focusing on CJ might stop CJ, but as Hass and Britt showed against the Ravens, it's no longer a one man show in Tennessee. Pick your poison.
2011 Week 3 vs DEN (3 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt was on his way to having another stellar game against the Broncos until suffering a knee injury early in the second quarter. On the play he caught a short pass while crossing the field from left to right. He began to sprint towards the sideline in an effort to outrun two oncoming defenders to the corner and turn upfield. However, as he spun away from one defender he appeared to plant awkwardly and hurt his knee. He fell to the ground in pain and fumbled the ball (which was retrieved by the Broncos). Prior to the injury Britt had two receptions, making a great catch on a crossing pattern for a twelve yard gain. Britt's long stride allows him to get to full speed quickly and his size continues to make him a tough matchup for cornerbacks. Early reports are that Britt may have torn both his ACL and his MCL.
2010 Week 2 vs PIT (7 / 5 / 41 / 0 rec)
Britt was the guy that the Steelers left open on the final two drives of the game. Collins looked to him early and often during this garbage time play, and Britt caught four of the six passes thrown his way. However, these were more 'possession' type receptions, the longest being only 11 yards. Britt was a non-factor for 47 minutes in this game.
2010 Week 3 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 26 / 1 rec)
Britt looked invisible for most of this game, largely by the fact that Tennessee leaned so heavy on the run. Britt's production took a big hit, and could only haul in two passes. He had an impressive catch in the back of the endzone, out jumping a Giants defender for the ball. Britt seemed to gain little separation in many of his routes and Young looked elsewhere on third down to move the chains.
2010 Week 4 vs DEN (7 / 3 / 23 / 1 rec)
Britt looked his usual inconsistent self on Sunday. He had a great touchdown catch from Young, as Young bought Britt some time in the endzone to unravel and get open. That was the highlight of the day for Britt, as he disappointed everywhere else when he was targeted. He failed to make the catch on an early jump ball with a Titan defender in which he had the advantageous position. Late in the game, he made a similar mistake and totally misplayed a ball that should have been caught for a very meaningful Titan first down. Britt also looked silly the next play, letting a perfectly thrown pass from Young slip through his hands, and fall incomplete over his shoulder.
2010 Week 5 vs DAL (6 / 4 / 86 / 1 rec)
Britt played well against the Cowboys. He was targeted deep four times against the Cowboys and once inside the redzone. His best catch came on a deep pass down the middle from Vince Young where Britt ran a "go" route and made a finger-tip catch in the middle of the field. He fell down but quickly jumped up and sprinted to the end zone for an 80 yard touchdown. However, the play was overturned on review when it was shown that a Dallas defender had gotten a hand on Britt as he fell, thus ending the play. Britt caught one touchdown on a curl earlier in the game that saw him line up on the right side, run to the end zone and then make a curl inside around his defender leading to the easy score.
2010 Week 6 vs JAX (5 / 2 / 33 / 1 rec)
Early on, Vince Young hit Britt twice in 1 on 1 coverage and it looked like he could have a big day. Britt showed great strength and determination on his touchdown when he was able to get through a couple of Jaguars DBs and carry them into the end zone. He had a 15 yard 1st down reception called back, but other than that the Titans never asked much from the downfield passing game after jumping out to an early lead.
2010 Week 7 vs PHI (10 / 7 / 225 / 3 rec)
Kenny Britt was held out of the game until the middle of the second quarter for disciplinary reasons (caught fighting at a night club earlier in the week) but he more than made up for the missed time once he entered the game. Britt torched the Eagles' secondary who just could not contain him at all despite double coverage. Britt was open all over the field, from sideline to sideline, over the middle and deep down the field. He finished with a career day with 225 yards and three touchdowns on just seven catches. There is no denying that he is a legitimate weapon and a must start every week from here on out after scoring a touchdown in five consecutive weeks - as long as Britt avoids any suspensions.
2010 Week 8 vs SD (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After last week's breakout game, owners had to be disappointed with Britt's early exit in this one. He got his hands on a first quarter deep ball from Vince Young that could have been caught. Britt stretched at the last moment to reach for it, but couldn't haul it in. However, the stretch probably tested the limits of his hamstring, as he came down lame after the incompletion. He limped off the field grabbing the back of his right leg, and did not return.
2010 Week 14 vs IND (8 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Britt looked good in his return to the field and the Titans were keen to get him involved early and often. Britt excelled at finding soft spots in zone coverage on defenses and then showing his large frame to his QB for a big window to throw into. Britt has tremendous size and is tough to bring down in the open field as he is as strong as he is fast. He caught numerous balls for first downs by simply turning around and waiting for the football, out jumping everybody for the ball. He did fumble the ball early in the game, showing poor awareness of the Colt DE as he stripped Britt. Britt is returning from injury and the Titans were happy to lean on Johnson, leading to Britt's somewhat disappointing day but he has bigger things to come down the line.
2010 Week 15 vs HOU (9 / 6 / 128 / 0 rec)
Britt put on a clinic in his second game back from injury. The only thing he didn't do was score. His bread and butter was a simple button-hook route in single coverage, which Collins hit with pinpoint accuracy. The highlight reel will show you this one though: A brilliant combination of luck and concentration, as he swooped in for the tipped pass and a 59 yard gain. Collins simply threw too far ahead of Britt, and into coverage, so the tip gave him the time he needed to get to the ball, and he didn't even have to break his stride to catch it. Britt made a number of other impressive plays, showing sharp focus on the sideline in keeping in bounds on a tough catch, and even on one diving catch that he couldn't hang on to as he hit the ground.
2010 Week 16 vs KC (9 / 4 / 89 / 1 rec)
Britt's TD was one of just a handful of exciting plays for the Titans. Not only did he burn Carr deep, but he then pulled in the underthrown ball and pulled the defender into the endzone, showcasing the strength that he has. Aside from a couple other receptions though, Britt was unable to get on the same page with Collins in this matchup. There were a number of times where Collins badly overthrew him, and it made you wonder who was on the wrong page? Britt has talent like few other WR's in this league, and has the ability to be a superstar WR.
2010 Week 17 vs IND (9 / 5 / 85 / 1 rec)
Britt has a huge future, as he showed again by blowing past the Colts cornerbacks for an easy 21 yard touchdown. Britt is very hard to stop, as he has great speed, bigtime size and seems to catch everything that comes in his path. Collins did a great job of feeding him the ball, while the Colts focused on stopping the run. Britt did get nicked up again in this one though, which has to be of some concern, as he hasn't been able to stay healthy. But Britt is ready to have a huge 2011, assuming of course, the Titans can fix their QB problems.
2009 Week 1 vs PIT (6 / 4 / 85 / 0 rec)
Britt got a lot of snaps in his first regular season game because Nate Washington was not 100% for this game. He was inconsistent in his route running, but when he was sharp, he easily got open on 15-yard outs. He also had the biggest gain of the night on a catch and run that showed the physical talent that made him a first round pick. This passing offense is not potent enough to make Britt a serious fantasy threat this year, but he should become the best downfield receiver on this team in time.
2009 Week 2 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Kenny Britt had two receptions on two targets for 22 yards but both were critical first down catches. Britt appears to be building a rapport with Kerry Collins and it appears only a matter of time until he is the Titans go-to receiver. Through two games, he leads the Titans in receiving yards. His route running and hands were once again excellent. On one reception, Britt was down on the turf for a few minutes after falling face first in to a defender and the ground, but he got up under his own power and should be fine for next week.
2009 Week 3 vs NYJ (6 / 4 / 59 / 0 rec)
Britt had to play a big role the whole game as the Titans were forced to pass, stuck in a 14-point hole early. He seemed like the most comfortable Titans WR catching the ball, he came back to the ball well, and he also broke some tackles after the catch. He's well on his way to being to the Titans #1 receiver.
2009 Week 4 vs JAX (11 / 7 / 105 / 0 rec)
Britt continues to emerge as the best weapon in this passing offense. He showed good hands, often plucking the ball out of the air instead of letting it get to his body, and he ran tough after the catch, breaking tackles and getting yardage with his top-end speed. Britt showed good field awareness working the sidelines, and he also threw a crushing block on Kerry Collins TD run.
2009 Week 5 vs IND (5 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Britt was mostly a non-factor in the game on Sunday night. He was used mostly out of the slot and had a couple of costly 3rd down drops early in the game. The rookie remains a high-ceiling prospect moving forward but his production will be limited week to week while playing in this offense.
2009 Week 6 vs NE (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Britt did not have a reception on Sunday but did have a costly illegal blocking penalty called on him after Chris Johnson had sprung loose for a 40 yard gain. The penalty brought the ball back 18 yards and in to Titans territory. Otherwise, Britt's affect on the game was minimal. He was targeted on a handful of passes - including two long passes to the middle of the field - but was not able to make a reception.
2009 Week 8 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Rookie wideout Kenny Britt had only one target and catch in Week 8 against Jacksonville. Britt is not quite ready to break into the Titans' starting lineup, and even if he does it is still a risky fantasy position given the Titans lack of a strong passing attack.
2009 Week 9 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Rookie wideout Kenny Britt had zero targets in Week 9 and was barely on the field. With starters Nate Washington and Justin Gage dominating WR targets, Britt is practically worthless from a fantasy perspective and is safe to cut for better options.
2009 Week 10 vs BUF (4 / 2 / 55 / 0 rec)
Britt got into the starting lineup because Justin Gage's back injury kept him from playing, and he made an impression by out-competing a defensive back for a 50/50 ball from Vince Young.
2009 Week 11 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 42 / 1 rec)
Britt made an impact in his second NFL start, catching a TD from Vince Young on a crossing route in the red zone, and drawing multiple penalties from Texans defensive backs. Britt is running routes downfield, and he clearly has good chemistry with Young from their time together on the second team. Britt is a good pickup in deep leagues, as he should only improve as the season goes on, and Justin Gage's return timeframe is still unknown.
2009 Week 12 vs ARI (11 / 7 / 128 / 1 rec)
Like Vince Young, Britt got a chance at redemption, and didn't squander it. He started out hot with a great run after a short crossing pattern catch in the first quarter, and Young also trusted Britt to block out and make the catch when he was covered well, including the first fourth-down conversion on the game-winning drive. Young took a few shots deep to Britt when he was single-covered, and Britt converted one in the fourth quarter, only to fumble the ball away when he was tackled from behind by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Britt got the target on the game's final play, and he skied for the ball, snatching it out of the air with both hands and taking a hit on the way down while securing the win. It's hard to imagine Justin Gage getting his job back when his back is better.
2009 Week 13 vs IND (9 / 3 / 46 / 1 rec)
Britt made a couple of nice catches, including a very nice touchdown grab near the end of the half, and looked very dangerous on kickoff return. The Titans seemed to rely on him more and more to make a tough catch when they needed one. On a fourth down, they called is number in the end zone, and he held on to a jump ball but couldn't stay in bounds. Britt's a fighter: he fought hard for the ball in end zone, and another time fought to get away for a first down, from what looked like a sure tackle well behind the marker.
2009 Week 14 vs STL (2 / 2 / 75 / 0 rec)
Britt has come along quickly as a rookie receiver. Britt is most productive with Vince Young at quarterback and with Young injured, it's hard to know what the next three games hold for Britt. That said, he's quickly becoming the downfield threat the Titans have needed since Derrick Mason left town. The Titans are utilizing him quite a bit on out routes, "go" routes, and downfield crosses (where he is having the most success). His two catches Sunday were both on deep patterns, one from Young and one from Collins. Britt's hands have endeared him to downfield routes in the passing game as offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger appears to trust Britt's combination of hands and athleticism over Nate Washington's pure speed.
2009 Week 15 vs MIA (2 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Britt had a quiet game. Though he had only two catches, one of them was an athletic leaping catch, which he caught in stride. Sort of Larry Fitzgerald-ish. Britt had a couple of games with 9 and 11 targets, but with Justin Gage getting back to full health, it looks like it's back to 2-3 targets per game.
2009 Week 16 vs SD (6 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Rookie wideout Kenny Britt split time with Justin Gage, not that it mattered much for Tennessee on a night where San Diego stifled the Titan passing game. Britt had one catch for a 13-yard gain in the second quarter but was targeted six times, including what should have been a 52-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter that hit him in his outstretched hands but fell incomplete. Britt had beaten the coverage and would have had the score if he had reeled in that challenging but possible grab.
2009 Week 17 vs SEA (1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Britt caught the only pass thrown his way. He was the third option on a conservative passing day.
