2012 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Aug-08-2012 by Rob Warner
The 23 year old WR from Rutgers was showing signs of a true breakout year in 2011 (3rd NFL season) after totaling 271 yards and 3 TDs in his first two games, but a torn ACL in week 3 knocked him out for the remainder of the season. In 2010 (12 games), he averaged 65 YPG with nine touchdowns. Britt is a world class talent as well as a world class idiot (numerous arrests for drag racing, marijuana etc.). Provided he can avoid a jail cell and the recovery goes as planned, Britt could be a borderline WR1 /solid WR2 on draft day.
UPDATE: Britt underwent a minor knee surgery in June to remove a clicking in his knee. He will be eased back into action and the Titans' hope is to have him on the field for one of the final preseason games. Britt has reported confidence that he'll be ready for week 1, but that remains to be seen.
Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is entering his fifth season in the NFL, so I guess this is a story about "better late than never."
From the Tennessean's Jim Wyatt: "By all accounts, Britt got serious this offseason. After a squabble with police in his native New Jersey, he trained in California and showed up for the start of the offseason program in good shape, impressing coaches and teammates. After multiple knee surgeries last offseason, Britt avoided the knife this offseason. If he's healthy and motivated -- which he should be in a contract year -- this could be a launching pad for a big season."
We know what Britt can do when healthy and not in trouble with the law. Just look at his injury-shortened seasons in 2010 and 2011. Small sample size, yes, but Britt's talent is undeniable. Britt has his doubters since he really hasn't done much on the field in 20 months. One of those doubters might be his own team as the Titans appear to be planning for Britt's exit as they have spent high-round picks on wide receivers in the last two drafts. Britt better have a big chip on his shoulder this year, and he could be a great value pick on fantasy draft day. He should be selected as a WR3, but expectations should be higher.
