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. Dec 17 - 11:46 AM

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.
Dec 9 - 7:45 PM

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.
Dec 8 - 3:59 PM

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.
Nov 17 - 3:17 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.
Nov 15 - 4:32 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.
Nov 12 - 5:01 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.
Nov 10 - 3:30 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.
Nov 8 - 4:07 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.
Oct 29 - 1:31 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.
Oct 27 - 2:02 PM

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

Britt belongs nowhere near fantasy rosters for Week 8 against the Vikings.
Oct 25 - 3:11 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.
Oct 22 - 5:08 PM

Kenny Britt (questionable, groin, knee) is expected to play Week 7 against the Titans.

He's coming back from a two-game absence. Britt is reportedly on thin ice after missing curfew ahead of last week's loss to Houston. With just eight catches in four games for his new team, the 29-year-old has been a tremendous bust, both in real life and in fantasy.
Oct 22 - 9:01 AM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Kenny Britt is in danger of getting cut.

Britt is "on thin ice" after being sent home for missing curfew last week. He's expected to play Sunday, but can't afford another slip up. Britt has been a huge disappointment, struggling with injuries and catching just eight passes in the four games he's been active. The Browns wouldn't save any money from releasing Britt.
