Kenny Britt got suspended today, but he was probably pretty happy about it considering it could have been a lot worse. After getting arrested for the 9th time in his still brief NFL career (since 2009) this offseason, this time for DUI, some predicted a 4 game suspension was a strong possibility for Brett. However, Adam Schefter, who is almost always right, believed it would be a shorter suspension, in the neighborhood of 1-3 games. Britt has to feel lucky that his suspension was on the lower end of even that as Roger Goodell handed down a suspension of just one game for Britt today.

The Titans definitely lucked out here, especially since Britt probably wouldn’t have been able to full go for week 1 anyway after two offseason knee surgeries. Britt should be closer to full strength by week 2 and be able to handle a starter’s role, so they really aren’t going to be missing him for much more than they already would have. Britt was activated off the active/PUP list this week and began practicing.

He’s coming off a torn ACL and had 3 knee surgeries this offseason, but he has caught 56 passes for 1146 yards and 12 touchdowns over his last 13 full games over the last 2 seasons. Still not yet 24 (turns 24 in September), the former 1st round pick still has all the potential in the world. If he can get his act together, stay out of trouble, and stay healthy, Britt has the talent to be a top-10 receiver in the league, especially with Jake Locker throwing to him. Remember, his quarterbacks in the past have been Vince Young, Kerry Collins, and Matt Hasselbeck.

He probably won’t reach top-10 status this season, with the 1 game suspension and the knee injuries, but he could definitely have that kind of year in 2013 if things go right for him between now and then. For 2012, Britt is a WR2/Flex with upside and a steal in fantasy leagues at his current ADP in the 7th round (which I suspect is about to shoot up). As for the Titans as a whole, I feel the same way about them that I did about the Lions last season (for more on why, click here).
