Patriots exercised Kenny Britt's 2018 team option.
Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Pats are "looking for big things out of him." We wouldn't be so sure about that, but the Pats now have an offseason to see if Britt is ready to put his disastrous 2017 behind him. Signed by the Pats in mid-December, Britt barely saw the field, and was a healthy scratch for the Super Bowl. He turns 30 in September. None of his $1.5 million 2018 salary is guaranteed.

Kenny Britt is a healthy scratch for Super Bowl 52.

Signed to a cheap, two-year deal after the Browns cut him, Britt wound up playing just 40 snaps in a Patriots uniform, and was a healthy scratch for all three playoff games. The fact that Britt is owed just $1.5 million in salary and bonuses gives him improved odds of being a player the Patriots bring to 2018 training camp.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports new Patriots WR Kenny Britt is expected to be active Week 15 against the Steelers.

With Chris Hogan (shoulder) not expected to play, Britt will be active less than a week after signing with New England. After showing little effort in Cleveland, Britt turning around his season in New England would be a very Patriots outcome. Still, he is not worth a look in fantasy this week.

Patriots signed WR Kenny Britt to a two-year contract.

Waived by the worst team in football four days ago, Britt will try to stick to the Super Bowl-or-bust Patriots' 53-man roster. Especially while Chris Hogan (shoulder) was sidelined, the Pats were lacking depth at receiver. Hogan is back now, but another body was still needed. It's an open question as to whether Britt will be able to keep his roster spot, though the two-year deal suggests he will. Britt was all the way checked out for the Browns, making awful errors and few, if any, big plays. Although he will be catching passes from Tom Brady, Britt won't have any fantasy value in his new home.

ProFootballTalk reports Kenny Britt hopes to sign with a team next week.

Britt is fully expected to clear waivers with $942K remaining on his deal. He wants to play for a contender, with the Patriots a potential fit. Britt was a massive flop in Cleveland, but could resurface as a veteran flyer.

Browns released WR Kenny Britt.

Britt will go on waivers, but he will almost certainly go unclaimed after flopping miserably in Cleveland. The Browns' 2.0 version of Dwayne Bowe, Britt seemingly never had any intentions of playing hard in Berea after inking a four-year, $32.5 million deal last March. The good news is only the first year of Britt's contract was guaranteed. The Browns largely knocked their free agent signings out of the park under ex-EVP Sashi Brown -- C J.C. Tretter, CB Jason McCourty, and RG Kevin Zeitler among them -- but Britt was a big swing and a miss.

Kenny Britt (knee) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Britt scored a touchdown last week, though he only managed two catches for 38 yards in a loss to Detroit. Going against a loaded Jaguars secondary, Britt should be avoided in all fantasy formats this week.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 03:17:00 PM

Kenny Britt (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Britt dealt with a knee injury earlier this season. It shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's Jacksonville matchup. Britt is coming off his best game in Week 10, but remains off the streaming radar.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 04:32:00 PM

Kenny Britt caught 2-of-3 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Lions.

Britt managed a 19-yard touchdown after a first-quarter interception put the Browns in good field position. He didn't do much after that, but it was his best game of the season. Britt still saw fewer targets than Ricardo Louis and remains off the fantasy radar.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:01:00 PM

Kenny Britt (knee) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 10 against the Lions.

Britt was upgraded to full practice on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. He's been following this pattern for the last several weeks. Britt carries no fantasy relevance at this juncture.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 03:30:00 PM

Kenny Britt (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Britt's been dealing with knee and groin issues off and on all season, though it shouldn't keep him from suiting up Sunday against Detroit. He's been a complete bust for fantasy purposes, managing just 10 catches for 128 yards and one touchdown across five games for the winless Browns.
Wed, Nov 8, 2017 04:07:00 PM

Kenny Britt was not targeted in the Browns' Week 8 loss to the Vikings in London.

If he played any snaps, we did not see them. It is possible the Browns cut Britt over the bye week. He should not be rostered in any format.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 01:31:00 PM

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 8 against the Vikings.

He returned to full practice Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. Coming off his first career 1,000-yard season, Britt has been a complete non-factor in his first year with Cleveland. It won't get any easier Sunday against a tough Vikings secondary.
Fri, Oct 27, 2017 02:02:00 PM

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Britt belongs nowhere near fantasy rosters for Week 8 against the Vikings.
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 03:11:00 PM

Kenny Britt caught 2-of-5 targets for seven yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Titans.

After missing the past two weeks, Britt picked up right where he left off. Looking like one of the biggest busts of free agency, Britt has now 10 receptions 128 yards and a touchdown on 28 targets for the season. He is not a fantasy option Week 8 versus the Vikings.
