Britt’s issues hurting his fantasy appeal

Kenny Britt is one of the most talented young wide receivers in the National Football League, and the sky’s the limit for his potential value in the world of fantasy football — I think he can be a top-10 player at his position in 2011. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to stay out of trouble when he’s not on a football field.

The Rutgers product had yet another run-in with the law this week, and is facing three charges for his alleged role during a police chase in New Jersey. This wasn’t his first incident with police, either. He was also arrested on outstanding traffic warrants back in 2010, and missed curfew during Titans training camp after being ticketed for driving without a license. Britt was also implicated but ultimately not charged after a bar fight in Nashville.

Considering his list of off-field problems, he could face punishment from the NFL in the very near future. Commissioner Roger Goodell has already said the league plans to enforce any violations of the personal-conduct policy that occur during the lockout.

Once the lockout ends and we get back to football, fantasy owners will need to keep close tabs on what happens with Britt. He has the tools to be a 1,000-yard wideout and score a ton of touchdowns as the top option in the Titans pass attack, but any possible suspension would seriously limit his draft-day appeal.
