Fantasy Football: Is Kenny Britt Ready to Rock?

Ryan Lester@LestersLegendsSenior Writer IOctober 13, 2012

Kenny Britt’s box score looked good: four catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. But while fantasy owners have to be pleased with that performance, there could have been more.

Britt was targeted 11 times and had some drops that would have led to an even better game on Thursday night. He also struggled in his route-running.

But while he left yardage and fantasy points on the field, he should start paying some pretty big dividends for his owners.

For starters, Britt escaped from the victory healthy.  Not only that, but by playing on Thursday, he has extra time to rest up for his next game. He will also have extra time to get more up to speed with what the Titans are doing. He has only played in seven games since the start of the 2011 season, so he’s still adjusting both mentally and physically.

The Titans have struggled defensively and have subsequently had to throw the ball on average 39.0 times per game. With 52 looks, Kendall Wright has been dominating the targets, but it won’t take long until Britt gets the lion’s share of looks. In fact, on Thursday, he led the way with those 11 targets.

Next week, Britt could be in store for a nice game. Tennessee is taking on the Bills. He also has the Dolphins coming up and a favorable fantasy playoff schedule of the Colts, Jets and Packers.

Good things could be in store for Britt. Given his injury history, you’ll need insurance, but since you didn’t know what to expect from him, you probably already have that covered.
