When Kenny Britt proclaimed that he would be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL in the 2014 season, he instantly entered my fantasy football radar. If Britt signed with the New England Patriots, his proclamation could have very well become true. He has just signed with the St. Louis Rams, however, and his fantasy production is in serious trouble.
Here are five reasons to completely avoid Kenny Britt in your fantasy football draft.
The Rams like to spread the ball around, and Britt will be just another option for Sam Bradford. Between Tavon Austin, Austin Pettis, Chris Givens and Jared Cook, the fantasy production of Britt will be severely limited.
Britt signed a one-year deal, and if he wants to stay with the Rams, he will need to instantly produce. He has always been vocal about his lack of usage for the Titans' offense, so Britt will need to prove that Tennessee made a huge mistake letting him go. The pressure may get to him and ruin his fantasy season.
Not only will Britt have to learn a new playbook, but he will have to develop a connection with Sam Bradford. It is almost impossible to predict how a wide receiver and quarterback will connect with each other, and this makes Britt a risky draft pick.
Britt will now face the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and an underrated Arizona Cardinals team twice in the 2014 season. He will have a difficult time producing in arguably the toughest division in the NFL, especially defensively.
The Rams' offense is not designed to produce an elite wide receiver. Zac Stacy will be more involved in the offense going forward, and Tavon Austin should also see an increase in targets and his workload. Britt would be elite with Tom Brady, but he can't be with Sam Bradford.
