WR Kenny Britt is still awaiting a decision on his potential suspension, which should come soon. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt is nearly 100% from the ACL surgery that ended his season early in 2011. However, his status is still up in the air for Week 1, as Britt is awaiting news on a possible suspension from the league for his DUI arrest in the offseason, the 8th arrest in his NFL career. Terry McCormick is reporting that Britt's ruling is "still under review" and Adam Schefter expects it to be a short one. The Titans are hoping for a decision before roster cuts must be made on Monday.

Analysis: Most people don't expect a suspension any longer than 1-2 games, and even then it's a blessing in disguise for Britt, giving him extra time for his knees to heal up. He should be ready to go by Week 3 or 4, is still one of the best fantasy WRs in the league and expected to do great things with first-year starter Jake Locker. Don't be afraid to pay a premium for his services.
