Kenny Britt caught 2-of-3 targets for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts.
Britt finishes the preseason with five catches for 44 yards. Britt revived his career under coach Jeff Fisher last season, but at best, he's a low-upside WR4 for fantasy purposes. Aug 29 - 11:46 PM

Kenny Britt caught just 10 passes on balls thrown 20 yards or deeper last season.

That was out of 25 attempts. A success rate that low suggests Britt's numbers have been more affected by poor quarterback play than his own inconsistency. Nick Foles provides stability at a position that has been a revolving door for the Rams in recent years. Britt is far from a fantasy stud but he should improve on the paltry numbers he posted last season (48 catches, 748 yards, three touchdowns).

Kenny Britt says he is developing "chemistry" with new Rams QB Nick Foles.

"Our chemistry has been great since Day 1," Britt said. "He has a sense of when to put touch on it, and when to throw it in there." With Brian Quick sidelined, Britt has been the Rams’ No. 1 receiver during Organized Team Activities. Britt's downfield targets project to increase under Foles. Britt posted a 48/748/3 line with Shaun Hill and Austin Davis under center last year.
Jun 5 - 7:12 PM

Rams coach Jeff Fisher believes "we should see a lot more out of" Kenny Britt in 2015.

Britt played 16 games for only the second time in his career and caught a career-high 48 passes last season. The Rams have done nothing to upgrade their pass-catching corps this offseason, so Britt has a decent shot to enter 2015 as the de facto No. 1 receiver. With Nick Foles providing better quarterback play, that could mean an even better season for Britt, though he will struggle to be anything more than a WR3 even if he stays healthy.

Updating a previous item, Kenny Britt's two-year deal with the Rams has a base value of $9.15 million and can void after one season.

The initially reported numbers -- $14 million over two years -- were obviously agent-inflated. Britt did get an initial $1.5 million roster bonus, and his 2015 base salary of $2.55 million is guaranteed, but the Rams can cut him or, more technically, "void" the deal next offseason and encounter zero dead money for 2016. It's really a one-year, $4.05 million commitment.

Rams re-signed WR Kenny Britt to a two-year, $14 million contract.

The contract is worth "up to" $14 million, but Britt stunningly got $4.3 million guaranteed. It is a big investment in an injury-prone and inconsistent player, though Rams coach Jeff Fisher seems to have a knack for getting the most out of Britt. Britt is currently penciled in as the starting outside receiver opposite the recovering Brian Quick (shoulder surgery, questionable for training camp), but the Rams should be looking to add more wide receiver talent this offseason.

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports free agent Kenny Britt is expected to re-sign with the Rams.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday that the sides were "in discussions." Britt has had his only success under coach Jeff Fisher, so remaining in St. Louis makes sense as long as the money is right.
Mar 11 - 6:38 PM

The Rams are still in discussions with free agent WR Kenny Britt.

After being phased out in Tennessee, Britt enjoyed a resurgence last year with St. Louis. He's not someone you build an offense around, but Britt has the tools to be a respectable second or third receiving option. From a fantasy outlook, having Nick Foles at quarterback would certainly improve Britt's output if he decides to stay in St. Louis.
Mar 11 - 9:39 AM

ESPN's Nick Wagoner expects the Rams to re-sign free agent Kenny Britt.

Britt could be allowed to test free agency, but the Rams are his most likely landing spot. All of Britt's best seasons have come under Jeff Fisher, and he set career highs in 2014 with 48 catches. Britt is Rotoworld's No. 7 available wideout.

Feb 21 - 5:23 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports impending free agent Kenny Britt's player reps met with the Rams at the Senior Bowl.

Britt has said he "definitely" wants to return to St. Louis, and it appears the feeling is mutual. All of Britt's best seasons have come under coach Jeff Fisher. With the Rams lacking anything resembling depth at receiver, a new deal makes sense for both sides. Britt wouldn't be a candidate for guaranteed money beyond 2015 on the open market.

Free agent Kenny Britt said he "definitely" wants to re-sign with the Rams.

Britt resuscitated his career in St. Louis, setting career-highs in catches (48) and yards (748) to go with three touchdowns. He'd do well to stay in St. Louis because Jeff Fisher appears to be the only coach that can coax competency out of him. Britt, armed with both on- and off-field questions, will not fetch a hot market when free agency opens March 10.
Jan 6 - 10:40 AM

Kenny Britt caught 4-of-5 targets for 38 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

Britt ends the season with a career-high 48 catches for 748 yards and three touchdowns. Reunited with coach Jeff Fisher, Britt got his career back on track on a one-year deal in St. Louis despite shoddy quarterback play. He is the Rams’ first 700-yard receiver since Torry Holt in 2008. That’s how bad it’s been for the Rams recently. Britt is still just 26 and headed for free agency, but he’s unlikely to see many multi-year offers because of his troubled past. He’d be smart to stay in St. Louis with Fisher where the Rams would likely like to keep him around as a mentor for Brian Quick and any other young receivers they choose to bring in. Britt has earned a starting job for 2015.

Kenny Britt caught nine passes for 103 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Giants.

The nine catches are a season-high in Britt's disappointing first season as a Ram. He was the clear-cut No. 1 option, racking up 11 targets and consistently finding himself open over the middle. That won't happen in Week 17 at Seattle.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 08:10:00 PM

Kenny Britt caught 5-of-9 targets for 65 yards in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Britt's most-impressive grab came with just 2:28 remaining, as he went up between two defenders to make a contested 22-yard catch, taking some major punishment in the process. Britt's numbers don't jump off the page (35/607/3), but he's looked better as the season's worn on. He's definitely proven he still belongs in the NFL. Still only 26, Britt is headed for free agency.

Kenny Britt caught two passes for 52 yards in the Rams' Week 14 win over the Redskins.

Britt and Jared Cook each saw a team-high five targets. Last week it was Stedman Bailey making the impact at receiver. This week it was Britt's turn. He got loose behind CB Bashaud Breeland for a 41-yard catch on a Shaun Hill rollout. It may have gone for a touchdown had Hill put more air under it. The St. Louis offense can only support one pass catcher. Britt remains a WR4/5.
